A Sopranos Actor Is Ready To Haunt Your Lunch Meat This Halloween As The Gabaghoul

Happy Halloween! You know, sometimes I feel a little bad for some of the supporting "Sopranos" actors. Many of them are stuck playing wiseguys for the rest of their lives, and I have to imagine that they sometimes get a little tired of that. But hey, work is work, and Vincent Pastore, who memorably played Big Pussy on "The Sopranos," is now out here hocking lunch meat as a spooktacular character named the Gabaghoul. Normally, we here at /Film don't report on news about cold cuts, but this was to...

Thank You, Sinema, Very Helpful!

A lot of things happened. Here are some of the things. Love To Keep You Guessing Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) emerged from her White House meeting yesterday without telling Biden what exactly she objects to in the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill for infrastructure, only that she still objects to it, according to Politico. The Arizona Democrat reportedly told Biden that she’s “not there” and that “I’ve been very clear with you from the start.”She reportedly won’t give specifics un...

Unsealed Documents In Nunes' Family Farm's Lawsuit Against Ryan Lizza Raise More Questions About The Lawsuit Than They Answer (techdirt)

The saga of Devin Nunes' family's lawsuit against reporter Ryan Lizza and Esquire Magazine got even more bizarre last week. Back in June, we had written about some heavily redacted documents in the case that suggested that Nunes' lawyer, Steven Biss, was playing some very dangerous games in order to try to keep the employees of the NuStar Farms (owned by Nunes' relatives) from testifying as to their immigration status. As you may recall, the only part of the lawsuit that was still going on were ...

Barris custom auto shop to leave San Fernando Valley (and take Batmobile with it)

I was looking at the Batmobile. It was at rest in broad daylight in a showroom in the San Fernando Valley, as if one might wander in, kick the tires and sign the papers to take it home. George Barris, car customizer supreme, designed the Batmobile for the 1960s TV show. He had about three weeks to modify a Futura concept car with its bubble-like cockpits into the finned car that ferried Adam West and Burt Ward around Gotham City. Barris Kustom Industries, in North Hollywood since 1961, will ...

From California wine country to Arizona and Virginia, there are wineries owned by the stars across the country. Some, like the wineries owned by Francis Ford Coppola, are almost as famous for the wine as for who owns it. Others are quietly putting out tasty bottles without splashing a...

The 20 Most Influential Female Directors

The narrative surrounding women in film is always changing -- even whether or not it is valuable to label someone a "female director" is up for debate. Makes sense! The term "female director" does not mean any one thing. Some women influenced cinema by developing technology. Others defined, or re-defined, a genre. Many made history by being the first woman to reach a milestone (no filmmaker needs to be the first at anything in order to be considered influential or culturally significant, but eac...

Is the Necktie Obsolete?

Men’s magazine writers and cultural observers have been predicting the demise of the necktie for nearly a century now. Way back in 1921, the Associated Press reported: “Neckties Doomed.” Flip through archival issues of Esquire , and you’ll find at least one article in each decade of the 20th century prophesying the death of this sartorial accessory.  But these obituaries were premature; the necktie kept on beating the odds. In fact, sales of ties increased in the late 2000s and early ‘1...

Devin Nunes' Family's Bizarrely Stupid Defamation Lawsuit Goes Off The Rails (techdirt)
