'VANish' Star Tony 'Candyman' Todd Gives Insight On His Amazing Career!

February 24th, 2015 12:20pm EST
TT
Sometimes the hardest job for an actor immediately associated with a single standout character is to move past such a notorious notable and keep working. Fortunately for character actor Tony Todd, who is of course most recognized for his arresting work as former slave Daniel Robitaille turned hook wielding legend "Candyman," it’s truly been a success story. Having done some seriously stellar work both before (see "Platoon," "Lean On Me" and the Tom Savini version of "Night of the Living Dead" to name a few) and after ("The Crow," "The Rock" and of course the "Final Destination" films!) th...

Why Did Alejandro G. Iñárritu Deserve To Win Best Director?

February 23rd, 2015 8:30pm EST
Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu
In his second career Oscar nomination for Best Director, Alejandro G. Iñárritu took home the gold for “Birdman” (as well as two more wins, for Best Picture and Original Screenplay). Here is how he pulled it off:

1. The “One Shot” Trick
Coverage of “Birdman” has already discussed this feature to death, but it bears repeating: the entire film was shot and edited in such a way that it appeared to be one long continuous take. There actually were several cuts throughout, but most of the shots lasted about ten minutes, which is still an intensely long duration, considering that a one-minute sh...

Top 5 Game Changing Movie Bad Guys

Top 5 Game Changing Movie Bad Guys
Throughout the vast history of hero flicks one thing remains a key ingredient to being a success – the champion of the film is only as good as his bad guy movie counterpart. And while throughout cinema there have been a lot of truly tasty twisted dudes, only a very few have actually carved groundbreaking new territory in the role of ying to a hero’s yang. It’s these roles that we salute here – five sinister, calculated and conniving characters who dared to slip on the mask of malevolence and lovingly gave the movie world a whole new definition of bad guy. Listed by year, beginning way ba...

Fashion From The 87th Annual Academy Awards - The Best & Worst Dressed

February 23rd, 2015 9:50am EST
The Best & Worst Dressed At The 2015 Academy Awards
The biggest fashion event of the year took place on Sunday night (and some famous people took home some Oscars, as well). But what do we really like about watching the Academy Awards? The red carpet style.

The stars were quite conservative at this year's 87th Academy Awards. There were no major stand outs -- either good or bad. But there were some celebrities that looked beautiful in their designer gowns, and a few who maybe should have reconsidered their looks for the night.

Check out our best and worst dressed...

February 23rd, 2015 5:40am EST
Horrible Bosses 2

However, a slick investor soon pulls the rug out from under them. Outplayed and desperate, and without legal recourse, the three would-be entrepreneurs concoct a misguided plan to kidnap the investor's adult son and ransom him to regain control of their company.

Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx and Chris Pine also star.

Movies You Didn't Know Were Blatant Rip-Offs

Movies You Didn't Know Were Blatant Rip-Offs
It may surprise you to learn this, but Hollywood is not a shining hub of moral righteousness. Sure, your average motion picture industry worker probably isn't a serial killer (probably...), but there's been plenty of times when the movie business has stomped on the little guy's toes.

Or ripped off the little guy's movie to make basically the same thing, but with a bigger budget.

Click ahead, and you'll discover which very large blockbuster pics- some beloved, some almost instantly forgotten- are really blatant rip-offs of something that came before. We'd like to think that at least one of...

A Short History Of EGOT Winners

February 22nd, 2015 3:00pm EST
EGOT
February is both Oscar and Grammy time, which has us thinking about EGOT winners, i.e., entertainers who have won at least one Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony in their careers. The term was coined by actor Philip Michael Thomas (Tubbs from “Miami Vice”) in an interview in “Vanity Fair,” when he stated his goal of winning all four awards (he has yet to be nominated for any of them). The concept was further popularized in recent years on “30 Rock,” in a storyline that saw Tracy Jordan achieve EGOT status over the course of Seasons 4 and 5.

The following is a handy guide to actual ’s are perh...
