American Horror Story 1984: Season 9 Release Date, Trailer, Cast, Story, and News

Alec Bojalad Joseph Baxter Aug 27, 2019

Ahs: 1984, the ninth season of FX's American Horror Story, is a campy take on the classic slasher movie genre.

We now know what comes after the Apocalypse: the 1980s! FX has officially announced that American Horror Story Season 9 is American Horror Story 1984... though stylized as Ahs: 1984.

A while back, FX ordered American Horror Story Season 9 to keep Ryan Murphy's horror anthology series as its longest running drama series ever – Oh, and the network also ordered American Horror Story Season 10 for good measure. Yet, it sounded like an oversight that Ahs Season 8's subtitle was "Apocalypse," since the series still had at least two more seasons to go. But that's the beauty of this whole thing! Ahs is an anthology series, with a cast and storyline that resets each iteration. It's a wonder that each season doesn't end with the utter destruction of humanity in the first place.

Film Review: A Bit of Pop/Rock Magic Spins in ‘Juliet, Naked’

Chicago – The story of a drop-out rock and roll star… usually disappearing at the height of their fame… has fascinated the movies in both fiction (“Eddie and the Cruisers”) and documentary (“Waiting for Sugarman”). “Juliet, Naked” takes the premise and creates a charming, romantic story about fandom and redemptive decisions.

Rating: 4.5/5.0

All the cast is at the top of their game with a solid and very funny script. The Year of Ethan Hawke continues with another great performance by the man as the disappeared rocker. And Irish actor Chris O’Dowd nearly steals the picture as an obsessed fan, who inadvertently begins the demise of his long time relationship. Rose Byrne is his live-in girlfriend and the centerpiece of the proceedings, and she proves again that beyond her radiant good looks lies a deft and subtle comic actor. “Juliet, Naked” is a fun and intuitive life transition story, and is recognizable on many emotional levels.

Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll Review – TV FX – Leary Nails TV. Again.

Once in a while, a show comes a long that blows you away, but is unfortunately difficult to describe. It isn’t that it’s taxing to try to convey what you appreciate about the effort, but that it’s actually hard to describe the show itself.

That may be a surprising statement, given that Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll has an official synopsis, was pitched, and has been and will be described countless times.

Sure, Denis Leary plays an aging rocker who never made it, and the series begins with him finding the daughter he never knew he had. The pull is that she sought him out so that he would write songs for her, because she wants to be famous, and he can’t afford to turn her down. Hilarity ensues.

That’s not what I mean.

Frankly, you have to appreciate the fact that it was probably one

Soundtracks That Take Over The Film – Add Your Picks

I was recently forced to think about the connection between soundtracks and films, and when that relationship is taken to another level, and it moved me to create a list of some of the ones I think reach for the stars in this area.

But, I didn’t want to include those that are too obvious (though I probably did anyway), and for a very specific reason.

For example, I wasn’t interested in putting Once on the list, because really, why bother? Putting Once on the list is somehow to just repeat yourself. Pretty in Pink didn’t work either, because when your movie is a song on the soundtrack, well, you’re just telling us what’s up right there. Same with Eddie and the Cruisers. There’s probably plenty of them.

At any rate, I’ve got a list of soundtracks, and once I had it, I

Songs on Screen: 'Streets of Fire's Lost Masterpiece 'I Can Dream About You'
Songs On Screen: All week HitFix will be featuring tributes by writers to their favorite musical moments from TV and film. Check out all the entries in the series here. When we talk about underrated directors, it's hard not to mention Walter Hill. Hill is an underrated director, the way Michael Ritchie and Peter Yates were underrated directors, the way Roger Donaldson, Joe Dante, and Fred Schepisi are underrated directors. They’re all underrated because it’s only when you look at their filmographies that the numbers start to total up and you realize, boy, he directed a lot of really good movies. In Hill’s case, that list includes "The Warriors," "48 Hours," "The Long Riders," "Southern Comfort,: "Hard Times," "Trespass," and "Wild Bill." Some great. Some solid. (My personal favorite of those is Hard Times, a pulpy film about bare-knuckle boxers in the Great Depression.) There were clunkers

Bad Boys for Life Trailer and Release Date

Joseph Baxter Oct 2, 2019

Bad Boys 3, billed as Bad Boys for Life, will see Will Smith and Martin Lawrence back together in January 2020.

Bad Boys 3 or Bad Boys for Life, has been, up until now, a long-kept secret. The difficulty, as producer Jerry Bruckheimer said back in summer 2013, centered on the task of reuniting its duo headlining personnel. Back then, he was "trying to find a hole in Will Smith's schedule."

Having finally overcome dilatory issues, the long-awaited threequel revives the popular buddy cop film franchise of 1995's Bad Boys and 2003's Bad Boys II, both of which were directed by Michael Bay. While he ultimately dropped out of directing the Will Smith and Martin Lawrence revival vehicle, he would be replaced by a duo of up-and-comers in Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah.

Now, Bad Boys for Life, the third film in the series is ready to once again ask the ever-pertinent question,

‘Selma’ Star Wendell Pierce to Make Film Producing Debut With Racial Drama ‘Billy’ (Exclusive)
In his first foray in producing since winning a Tony Award for producing “Clybourne Park” on Broadway, “Selma” star Wendell Pierce has come on to produce the racial drama “Billy” with Jerry Leider (“The Jazz Singer”), TheWrap has learned. Writer-director Martin Davidson is behind the adaptation of author Albert French’s debut novel, which was published in 1995. Davidson is the filmmaker behind the cult classics “Eddie and the Cruisers” and “The Lords of Flatbush.” A “To Kill a Mockingbird”-esque drama set in 1947, “Billy” is an emotional roller-coaster that tells the story of how a small segregated town in Mississippi reacts.

The 11 actors who’ve played Superman

Rob Leane Mike Cecchini Oct 11, 2016

From Kirk Alyn and George Reeves to Henry Cavill and Christopher Reeve, meet the men who have brought Superman to the screen...

Although Batman has had the most big screen versions of his character (more on that here), Superman surely holds the record for most re-castings once you add his vast television history into the equation. From Smallville to television musicals via Man Of Steel and old-school cinematic serials, The Big Blue Boy Scout sure has got around over the years.

Of course, the iconic Christopher Reeve holds the record for most filmic appearances, and remains to many film fans The Superman. Henry Cavill is surely after both of those accolades, even if the former seems the more likely goal.

While we wait for Cavill’s Supes to receive a post-Metropolis-levelling ass-whupping from Affleck’s Batman, then, let’s have a look at the actors

William H. Macy's Directorial Debut Peaks with a Punk-Rock Version of "Wheels on the Bus"

William H. Macy's Directorial Debut Peaks with a Punk-Rock Version of
Of all the movie hybrids, William H. Macy's feature directorial debut, Rudderless, is among the strangest, combining plot elements of the schlocky 1980s rock 'n' roll franchise Eddie and the Cruisers with that of somber grieving dramas like We Need to Talk About Kevin. The result, despite a few stellar moments, is a not-quite-tragic-enough meditation on mourning and self-healing, crossed with a not-quite-gritty-enough portrait of indie rockers trying to break big. A fine Billy Crudup plays a once-successful businessman turned alcoholic, houseboat-dwelling recluse, shell-shocked after the sudden death of his college-aged singer-songwriter son. At a dying open mic-bar a local teen (Anton Yelchin, in nattering Jesse Eisenberg mode) sees Crudup's chara...

ABC Reveals Fall Schedule And Previews New Shows

Now that it is just barely summer, it’s time for the networks to try their best to get you excited for fall television. ABC wants you to get excited for their schedule, and their new shows, and I’ve got some previews for you, as well as some initial thoughts.

I have to tell you, ABC is looking more and more strange as time goes on, and the overall efforts of the network really have to make you wonder. While there are some hints of interesting shows, and one or two that might turn into worthwhile vehicles, in the Eddie and the Cruisers world of television, ABC is Joe Pantoliano, clutching his tapes, and furiously blathering about the lunacy of not giving the idiotic public what they want, especially since they keep demanding it.

To that end, ABC has declared Thursday, Shonda Rhimes night, largely because someone apparently had

Elton John “The Diving Board” Album Review

Words and music.

Not only did that recipe become Eddie Wilson’s reason for living in the 1983 film Eddie and the Cruisers, but it has also served as the modus operandi of Elton John and Bernie Taupin since initially joining forces back in 1969.

Their opening statement, Empty Sky, sowed the seeds of greatness early on despite not producing a single track worthy of revisiting. John was still flying by the seat of his pants artistically and Taupin had yet to find his comfort zone as a poet capable of synthesizing the static with the mercurial to create something truly profound.

Nonetheless, the potential was evident, and, by the next year, they would have a bona fide smash on their hands in the form of, Your Song, an immortal ballad that wears its emotions on its sleeve while Taupin’s protagonist professes love to someone who is destined to leave the
