After 25 Years, Doug Liman’s Swingers Is Still Money

In the spring of 1997, my buddy and I were looking for a flick to watch on a Friday night and stumbled upon a movie called Swingers starring some guy named Vince Vaughn and Roller Girl from Boogie Nights. Obviously, it was the latter that caught our attention, but we were all in on the comedy the Los Angeles Times dubbed, “Hip and funny!” The movie changed our lives. No joke. For my friend and me, there was life before Swingers and life after Swingers. We learned a lot from that movie: How long ...

Baltimore Comic-Con returns - Randy Tischler on what to expect in 2021

by Mike Rhode Baltimore Comic-Con is returning live this coming weekend, and I spoke with my friend Randy Tischler of the Con's Executive Staff about what people can expect this year.  What happened to BCC in 2020? Like so many other shows, our knee-jerk instinct was to nix the show for 2020. One of the folks we'd met the previous year, Chad Ramsden from Comic Corps, gave me a call one day and pitched the idea of doing a virtual event, as they had just had some real success teami...

Midnight Mass Star Kate Siegel On Performing That Monologue And Embracing Obsession [Interview]

Erin's faith in "Midnight Mass" is complicated yet pure. She's someone seeking community and peace, but at the same time, that respectful desire was born out of hardship and tragedy. She escaped her home and her mother, who called her a "godless heathen," only to return and continue to struggle with the past. She's one of the many rich characters in "Midnight Mass," which is another Mike Flanagan project that delivers equally compelling drama and horror. For actor Kate Siegel, who also starred i...

Halloween Kills Producer Jason Blum On Why Sequels Are Difficult [Interview]

In 2018, Blumhouse surpassed expectations with "Halloween," David Gordon Green's sequel to John Carpenter's 1978 slasher classic. Surpassing expectations wasn't anything new to Blumhouse, but the production company delivered a hit reboot that most audiences weren't expecting. Not just a hit, but more importantly, a well-liked return to the world of Laurie Strode and Michael Myers. Three years later, the horror icons return in "Halloween Kills." "Halloween" is one of the bigger Blumhouse titles. ...

Movies Like Dazed And Confused That Comedy Fans Will Love

When "Dazed and Confused" came out in September 1993, it barely made an impact, commercially or critically. It cost about $7 million to make and earned $8 million back -- that's not exactly a bomb, but certainly a disappointment. But over the course of the next few years, it would slowly grow in estimation until it became what it is today, a coming-of-age cult classic and one of the most highly regarded high school films of all time. "Dazed and Confused" takes place on the last day of the 1976 s...

Midnight Mass Star Crystal Balint On The Danger And Power Of Faith [Interview]

"Midnight Mass" shows all walks of life in the Catholic community.

Midnight Mass Composers The Newton Brothers Rediscovered The Beauty Of Hymns [Interview]

The Newton Brothers go way back with director Mike Flanagan. Andy Grush and Taylor Newton Stewart have been composing the horror maestro's movies and shows since "Oculus." They brought emotion, not just horror, to "Hush," "Doctor Sleep," and "The Haunting of Hill House," to name a few. It's the drama, not always the horror, that the composers are responding to first and foremost. That's perhaps most evident in their newest collaboration with Flanagan, the horror-drama "Midnight Mass."

What made me want to fight for fair AI

Growing up, I lived in a small suburb just outside of Cleveland, Ohio and I was fortunate enough to attend Laurel School, an all-girls school focused on encouraging young women to think critically and solve difficult world problems. But my lived experience at school was so different from kids who lived even on my same street. I was grappling with watching families around ...

The Beach Boys’ Lost Concert: Watch the Band Perform Their Classics at Their Zenith (1964)

In early 1964, there could hardly have been an American teenager ignorant of the Beach Boys. Singing in immaculate harmonies about surfing, hot rods, girls, and root beer — as well as various combinations and permutations thereof — they soon found themselves riding an unprecedentedly high wave, so to speak, of postwar teen culture. On the other side of the pond, the Beatles had been hard at work playing to demographically similar, also-enraptured audiences. In February of 1964 the Fab Fo...
