Forgotten Friday Flick - 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer'

January 17th, 2014 1:30pm EST
Buffy
She slices, she dices and throws in the occasional cheer to boot – welcome to...Forgotten Friday Flick!  Today’s selection is for some a mere shadow in the face of a more involved and evolved series, but for yours truly it was a film experience like no other.  Taking multiple genres, lovingly blending them with a witty sensibility and topping it off with some of the best actors of the time (Ben Affleck cameo alert!), this 1992 film was a pleasure for all who experienced its bloodthirsty wares.  Love, death and a few fangs – we’re taking "Buffy the Vampire Slayer."

Buffy is a typical high...

Mike Manning
"I think that the great thing about the business is that we're all just trying to tell stories in different ways," actor/producer Mike C. Manning tells me during a recent phone chat. "Hopefully I get better and better and get bigger projects, so that one day I'm able to write and produce and act in my own stories, [and] more able to tell the stories I want to tell the way that I want to tell them."

Top Ten Worst Movie Sequels Ever

May 26th, 2011 12:00pm EDT
Transformers 2
With the two mega number twos including "The Hangover Part II" and "Kung Fu Panda 2" hitting theaters this week, it got us thinking about movie sequels of the past - good AND bad. So in a Starpulse salute to the bold and not so beautiful world of second cinematic outings, we’re going to jump feet first into both the daring and depressing realm of all things part two.

Tomorrow will feature the best of the bunch, but today’s focus is the real 'winners' of the group. (Yeah right!) A bunch of second rate, highly laughable, easily forgettable and downright detestable flicks that almost make...

Corey Feldman
Child stars Corey Feldman and Todd Bridges and actress Kristy Swanson staged a farewell dinner to honor their late pal Corey Haim in Marina Del Rey, California, on Thursday night.

Feldman was forced to scrap plans for a formal memorial service because Haim's mother, Judy, was still too upset and too ill to attend such a big event, and so he arranged for the tragic actor's closest friends and his mom to meet up and toast the star's memory.

Big Screen To Little Screen: Some Series Shine Will Others Fail

October 22nd, 2007 12:56pm EDT
Buffy
Often we don’t realize that our favorite TV shows began as vehicles on the big screen. Many of television’s best programs started that way. Then again, so did some of the worst.

In 1974, Ellen Burstyn starred in the Oscar awarded Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore. The movie was such a success that it was turned into “Alice,” complete with Vic Tayback as Mel. Unfortunately, it was Polly Holiday who made the sitcom a success. By the time she left the show and was replaced in 1980 by the original Flo, Diane Ladd, the damage had already been done. The series soon met its demise.
