Forgotten Friday Flick - Do You Remember 'Runaway Train' From 1985

May 22nd, 2015 12:15pm EDT
Forgotten Friday Flick - 1985 Action / Drama 'Runaway Train'
Since character actor Eric Roberts was so humble as to grace the latest horror outing "The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence)" with his fine performance presence, it felt right to rehash the very best of Roberts via his powerful past work – welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick! Amidst some very intense early films (see "Star 80!") and fabulous collaborations (see him with Mickey Rourke in "The Pope of Greenwich Village!"), this week’s choice is by far Robert’s finest hour. It’s a harrowing drama that shows what happens when human conflict and mechanical difficulties collide. There’s simpl...

'Strike Back' Flashback Recap

'Strike Back' Flashback: Picking Up The Pieces, Part 2
In the conclusion to Strike Back's South African hacker arc, "Cinemax Season 1, Episode 4," everyone is left wondering about the fate of Damien Scott. Little do we know that it's not the new guy we should be worried about, as this is the episode that would put the audience on notice that this show would never be safe.

When we left off last episode, Scott was in a world of hurt at the hands of former IRA member Daniel Connelly (a superb Liam Cunningham) after impulsively making the decision to sub in for a hacker that Stonebridge had no choice but to shoot. The episode ended with Section 20...

Is Maggie Gyllenhaal Getting Too Old To Land Good Roles?

May 22nd, 2015 12:05pm EDT
Maggie Gyllenhaal
Maggie Gyllenhaal has been hit by ageism in Hollywood already, and she's only 37-years-old.

The actress was left reeling after a casting director recently informed her that she didn't land the role playing the love interest of a 55-year-old man in an upcoming film because she's "too old."

Though Gyllenhaal was initially stunned by the turn-down, she doesn't hold a grudge and believes that something better will come along.

"There are things that are really disappointing about being an actress in Hollywood that surprise me all the time," she tells TheWrap.com. "It was astonishing to me. It...

Not Impressed: Shirley Bassey Hated Beyonce's See-Through Met Gala Gown

May 22nd, 2015 10:57am EDT
Beyonce
Beyonce made headlines after wearing a very see-through Givenchy dress at the Costume Institute Benefit Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art earlier this month, but not everyone was impressed by the look.

The singer was basically nude in a sheer dress embellished with hundreds of colorful crystals covering her up in all the right spots.

Seventy-eight-year-old singer Shirley Bassey, known most for James Bond theme songs such as "Goldfinger," believes Queen B showed too much.

"It is like they are all in competition with each other. Who can wear the skimpiest outfit? I mean come on," Ba...

Rutledge And George Try To Preserve Nicole's 1964 Ford F100 Pickup

May 22nd, 2015 10:20am EDT
'Lost In Transmission' Recap: 'Fire In The Hole'
Tonight's episode of Lost in Transmission has nothing to do with the Elmore Leonard short story called "Fire in the Hole." Really, it's more about Rutledge and George trying not to light themselves on fire.

The dynamic duo are trying to preserve Nicole's 1964 Ford F100 pickup truck that might just burn either of them before they can give it to her son Cameron. For once, George likes the choice; he's even enthusiastic about it, at least until he sees the F100's current sad state. It's got years of rust, a lizard under the hood, and a hole in the bed large enough to fit Rutledge. Oh, and it ...

You Do Not Want To Break 'Wayward Pines' Rules

May 22nd, 2015 9:54am EDT
'Wayward Pines' Recap: 'Do Not Discuss The Past'
Wayward Pines' series premiere had a bit of a mysterious and steady build up. We became all too confident that this would be one of those shows where you didn't really learn anything until close to the finale. We were wrong.

The second episode of Wayward Pines gave a full view of this town. We may not know all its secrets, yet, but they're starting too unfold in a rapid pace. Last night's episode not only gave us some major town rules, but it showed the punishment for those who break them. You definitely do not want to break Wayward Pines' rules.

The Most Embarrassing Celebrity Moments Caught On Film
We've all done embarrassing things. It's human nature. It's bad when these incidents happen on camera, but it's worse when you're famous and caught on film during one of these not-so-fine moments.

Justin Bieber puked on stage at a 2012 concert in Arizona -- not once but twice. He was in the midst of performing "Out Of Town Girl" when it happened. He turned his back to the audience and regurgitated. He rushed backstage as his back-up dancers continued to do their thing.

The pop star later came back to finish his set, but after a few more songs, he told the crowd: "It's hard for me, you kn...

It's a Boy! Casey Wilson And Husband David Caspe Welcome Their F
"Happy Endings" star Casey Wilson just got a happy ending of her own- a brand new baby boy! Casey and hubbie David Caspe confirmed the wonderful news to E! yesterday, although the couple has yet to reveal what they've named the little guy.

It's especially great news considering Casey's pregnancy started out rough (and scary!). The actress admitted to Fitpregnancy how uneasy things were at first.

"I’m feeling so much better than I was. I had a very rocky first and early-second trimester—I felt tired and sick and in a fog, like an extreme hangover, until about week 16. I thought, surely, th...
