‘The Voice’ found this Orange County singer after he’d spent years of paying his dues

Nine words and 17 seconds. That’s all Roderick Chambers had to sing of the Brian McKnight song he’d chosen for his blind audition on “The Voice” to convince judge Nick Jonas to hit his button, spin his chair, and change Chambers’ life forever. Now picture what that was like for Chambers: You just got something you’d dreamed about for years, but there’s still more than a minute of the song to sing, and millions of viewers are watching. Rock singer Tom Petty and his wife Dana arrive at the wor...

“1917” (R, for violence, some disturbing images and language; available to buy on Amazon Prime, Fandango Now, Apple TV and Vudu) Director Sam Mendes, has similarly taken top technology — and the best cinematography, courtesy of Roger Deakins — to give us a compelling look at World War I through the eyes of two ordinary soldiers asked to perform an extraordinary task. The special sauce here, which you may have heard about: “1917” appears as if it were shot in one seamless take — or two, if you in...

‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ star Alaska gives glamour tips for quarantine before Digital Drag Fest

After the global spread of the novel coronavirus forced the cancellation of RuPaul’s DragCon, which was set for May 1-3 in Los Angeles, and the bars and clubs shut down in West Hollywood, drag queens and other LGBTQ artists quickly adapted to streaming content to help save their livelihood. “We don’t miss a beat, honey,” Los Angeles-based drag performer Alaska, who was runner-up on season five of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” and winner of the second season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars,” said during ...

Child actor Hannah Marks grew up to write and star in ‘Banana Split.’ Oh, and she directs now, too

Hannah Marks turned 24 while directing her first feature film – though she says she looked even younger than that. “So definitely, in the first few days, people did not realize I was one of the directors,” Marks, who is now 26, says of “After Everything,” the 2018 release she co-wrote and co-directed with Joey Power. “Like, there were a few days of people asking me to get them coffee and stuff, and I was like, ‘I can’t; I’m busy. I gotta direct this thing,’” she says from her home in Los Angeles...

Jesse Eisenberg plays Marcel Marceau in ‘Resistance’ and home buyer in ‘Vivarium’

When Jesse Eisenberg calls to talk about his two new movies, “Resistance” and “Vivarium,” he laughs and is quick to agree that the two films would make for a truly bizarre double feature. In the World War II drama “Resistance,” Eisenberg plays the famed French mime Marcel Marceau as a young man working with the underground resistance against the Nazis who occupied his country. In “Vivarium,” he plays Tom opposite Imogen Poots as his girlfriend Gemma, a young couple looking to buy a first home wh...

‘Resistance’: Film Review

At the time of his death in 2007, Marcel Marceau was the world’s most famous mime. But in 1938-’39, when World War II rescue drama “Resistance” takes place, Jewish-born Marcel Mangel was just 15 years old (two decades younger than actor Jesse Eisenberg, who plays him here) and had not yet adopted his stage name, […]

Marcel Marceau Was A World War II Resistance Hero Who Saved Dozens Of Jewish Children

Recruited by his cousin, resistance leader Georges Loinger (who recently passed away at age 108), Marceau used his mime and acting skills to convince German and Vichy authorities that he was a teacher or youth leader taking young kids (who happened to be Jewish and incognito) to an exercise camp (that happened to be on the Swiss border). — The History Channel

Every Pokemon in the ‘Detective Pikachu’ Trailer

Now that we’re recovered from the bewilderment of watching the Detective Pikachu trailer, it’s time to parse through it frame-by-frame and count every Pokemon that makes an appearance. Because despite the strangeness of a Detective Pikachu adaptation, it’s still a big deal to see our favorite Pokemon come to life on the big screen in a live-action movie. And Warner Bros. was kind to fans here, throwing in some fan-favorite first-generation Pokemon in addition to some new-generation creatures. I...

How Marcel Marceau Used His Mime Skills to Save Children’s Lives During the Holocaust

In 1972, Jerry Lewis made the ill-considered decision to write, direct, and star in a film about a German clown in Auschwitz. The result was so awful that he never allowed its release, and it quickly acquired the reputation—along with disasters like George Lucas’ Star Wars Holiday Special—as one of the biggest mistakes in movie history. Somehow, this cautionary tale did not dissuade the bold Italian comedian Roberto Benigni from making a film with a somewhat similar premise, 1997’s Life ...

The improved treatment to which Dr. Jebelli was referring was pharmaceutical/biomedical treatment. Indeed, the vast majority of stories in the mass media about treatment for Alzheimer’s focuses on the long hoped for biomedical treatment, emerging from drug trials or genetic approaches o...

Buzz Aldrin Gives No F***s

When you’ve been beyond Earth’s orbit, I expect you have a different view of the world, it’s people and it’s leaders. And as someone who has “the right stuff”, Buzz Aldrin, certainly can lay claim to having firm views and a sharp ability to analyse the data laid out before him. Here he is providing Marcel Marceau level commentary on a speech by Donald Trump. It seems he has no poker face – and doesn’t care who knows it.

The 25 Best Manipulated Versions of Studio Logos

Studio logos serve a general purpose for any movie. They can suggest a type of film – people have a basic idea of what a Disney movie entails – or simply a sense of pomp and circumstance. While there’s no shortage of studio or production company logos, there aren’t as many cases of filmmakers playing around with those logos in front of their movies. This list highlights 25 such unique cases over 80 years, from the goofy to the ominous. A Night at the Opera (1935) Leo the Lion of the MGM...
