According to the former NBC president of entertainment, Warren Littlefield, in the early 1980s many people believed the sitcom was over. In 1999, Entertainment Weekly noted the genre’s demise. In 2005, so did Victoria Wood. The following year, the former ITV director of programm...

David Lynch's Dune Inspired Denis Villeneuve To Give His Own Interpretation

In December of 1984 filmmaker David Lynch, then hot off of the unlikely success of his 1981 film "The Elephant Man," unleashed his version of Frank Herbert's "Dune" to the public after three years of intense development and filming. While there was still hope of his "Dune" becoming a Star Wars-ian franchise (Lynch was still writing the script for "Dune 2" in late 1984), the disastrous critical reception and box office failure of the $40 million dollar Universal Pictures spectacle brought it to a...

Dave Grohl Falls Offstage & Breaks His Leg, Then Continues the Show as The Foo Fighters Play Queen’s “Under Pressure” (2015)

How do you make the show go on after a broken leg? The blessing we give performers before they go onstage isn’t something we actually want to see happen. Nonetheless, stage injuries occur frequently, and in some cases, severely, as when Patti Smith fell 15 feet into a concrete orchestra pit in 1977 and broke several vertebrae in her back. “I felt like an asshole,” she told Circus magazine, “but my doctor told me not to worry, it happens to everybody.” Maybe not everybody, but when th...

After the studio hit creative highs with Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Lion King, Disney was powerful enough to take risks that were impossible a decade earlier. An adaptation of an iconic Victor Hugo novel was such a risk. 25 years later, The Hunchback of Notre Dame is one of the most remarkable films Disney’s ever released, and one that hasn’t been topped for sheer boldness.
