Every Bob Fosse Movie Ranked Worst To Best

There's something equally inspiring and infuriating about great artists who find success across multiple mediums. We've seen this in 2021 with actor and composer Lin-Manuel Miranda's critically acclaimed directorial debut "tick, tick... Boom!," and we saw it decades earlier with the films of Bob Fosse. Known primarily as a choreographer with a provocative and specific style of dance, Fosse went on to have a career as a film director characterized by a few misses and some really stellar hits. Fos...

Listen To The Full Song From Hawkeye's Rogers: The Musical

If you've watched the first episode of "Hawkeye," Marvel's latest Disney+ offering, you've seen a bit of "Rogers: The Musical." Even if you've only checked out the trailer, you've seen a glimpse of it. In my former musical theatre world, it's been speculated on more than the plot of the show. I'm pretty sure it wasn't just my friends talking about it. If you're dying for more, we have great news for you — you can listen to the entire song. Sadly, there is no video of the whole thing on stage, bu...

Lin-Manuel Miranda Admits Movie Musicals Are Really Weird, But Knows How To Make It Work [Exclusive]

Lin-Manuel Miranda has no good reason to be nervous about writing songs for a Disney movie, but he is. For starters, this isn't his first go-round with the House of Mouse -- the actor-playwright previously penned songs for the Polynesian-focused tale "Moana" in 2016, earning him a best original song Oscar nomination for "How Far I'll Go." Two years later, Miranda would play the chimney-sweeping Jack in the musical sequel "Mary Poppins Returns," and in 2020 the Disney+ streaming service would pic...

AMT, payroll, and nanny tax inflation changes for 2022

AMT law changes plus annual inflation adjustments mean that this parallel tax aimed at the wealthy is no longer such a broadly-based ATM for the tax collector. The political and legislative battle over how to collect from the wealthiest taxes, which was mentioned in yesterday's Part 6 tax inflation post on (among other things) estate taxes, is not new. It's been going on for decades. The Alternative Minimum Tax, or AMT, is one way that Washington, D.C., came up with to ensure that the ric...

How The Captain America Musical In The Hawkeye Series Came Together

Marvel's upcoming Disney+ series "Hawkeye" will allow us to spend a little more time with everyone's favorite bow and arrow specialist around the holidays. Unfortunately for Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), that means he won't be heading home for the holidays with his family as soon as he'd like. The superhero finds himself keeping an aspiring archer (and Hawkeye fangirl) named Kate Bishop out of harm's way when she inadvertently puts herself square in the sights of some dangerous people after comi...

James Gunn Cast A Peacemaker Actor Because Of A Scooby-Doo Audition 20 Years Ago

With hits like "The Suicide Squad," "Guardians of the Galaxy," and "Guardians of the Galaxy 2," James Gunn became a cross-over success story from genre darling to one of the most highly-sought after superhero film directors. Before stepping into the world of comic book heroes, Gunn was known for his edgy dive into wannabe heroes with "Super," his love letter to B-movies, "Slither," and an extensive history of working with schlock label, Troma Films. For many, however, James Gunn will always be t...

The Lightsaber Umbrella In Star Wars: Visions Explained

Ever since Darth Maul whipped out a double-edged lightsaber in "The Phantom Menace" to take on two Jedi at once to the tune of John Williams' "Duel of the Fates," "Star Wars" has been playing a game of constant one-upmanship with its laser swords.George Lucas once boiled his lightsaber aesthetic down to the simple maxim of, "Good guys are green and blue. Bad guys are red." However, for his character Mace Windu in "Attack of the Clones," Samuel L. Jackson — ever the bad mofo — was able finagle a ...

32 Days of Halloween XIV: Day #13

A Disney HalloweenThe Lucy Show, & Dominique! Here’s a completely out of print Disney Halloween special from 1983.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s at 60: the sharp romcom that grows darker with age

Audrey Hepburn’s star-making turn as Holly Golightly remains as luminous as ever in Blake Edwards’ sweetened yet still bittersweet adaptation of Truman Capote’s novelBreakfast at Tiffany’s was a sacred film in my household growing up. My mother’s VHS tape, fuzzily recorded off TV, was plastered in “do not tape over” warning labels, a defence I might have to explain to someone born 10 years later than I was. The opening credits on this worn copy were briefly disrupted with footage from the 1988 W...

And yet, some characters make such a grand contribution to the series, or provoke such a change in one of our beloved regulars, that a single adventure is all we needed to see. In that spirit, we salute those magnificent one-timers who, even with their brief screen time, made an indelible mark on the greatest television show of all time...

15 Years Ago, ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ Transformed Meryl Streep Into a New Kind of Icon

In 2003, Lauren Weisberger released her debut novel, The Devil Wears Prada , a comedy about a young woman hired to be the personal assistant of a powerful and notoriously harsh fashion magazine editor. Upon its publication The Devil Wears Prada attracted attention because Weisberger had worked for Anna Wintour, the somewhat infamous editor-in-chief of American Vogue . Of course, audiences presumed the novel to be autobiographical, something Weisberger weakly denied. Immediately, the bo...
