Get ‘Frozen Fever’ With the Trailer for the New Disney Short

If the prospect of a new live-action version of Cinderella wasn’t enticing enough, the new Disney film is opening with a special added attraction: “Frozen Fever,” a short sequel to Frozen, the most popular movie (and most dastardly earworm) of 2013. And here I thought “Frozen fever” was a mental illness that made kids sing “Let It Go” over and over again until their parents begged for the sweet release of death. My mistake.

If you’re planning a Netflix night this weekend, picking the right film is key. There’s nothing worse than inviting that special someone over for a private screening, lighting a few candles, pouring a glass of wine, and then killing the mood by putting on In the Ream of the Senses.

‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Review: A Vanilla Movie About Kinky Sex

Christian Grey is an unusual guy. He’s the world’s most eligible billionaire bachelor and an enormously powerful businessman. He’s an avid jogger, an exceptional piano player, and a licensed helicopter pilot. He also really like the color gray. He wears gray suits and ties, drives a gray car to his gray office building (which is called Grey House) under gray Seattle skies, where his assistant dresses in—you guessed it—gray. (For the record, his office chairs are white but the couches are gray too.) And, oh yeah, he’s into kinky sex, including bondage, spanking, and domination.

The Many (Many) Faces (and Hairstyles) of Samuel L. Jackson

IMDB.com lists 159 acting credits for Samuel L. Jackson over a career that’s spanned more than 40 years. Jackson’s as versatile as he is prolific; though he’s likely best known for his action films and his flair for language (and especially profanity, his skills as a chameleon might be underrated. He’s made 160 films and television shows and looked like 160 wildly different people. Few actors seem to delight in the specifics of costuming, hair, and makeup as much as he does, and few have exhibited a wider array of hairstyles, facial hair, and wardrobes. From the earliest days of his career all the way up to next week’s ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service,’ nobody’s worn silver hair, a kilt, or exaggerated octopus-style eye makeup quite like Samuel L. Jackson. In honor of his great achievements in outlandish onscreen fashion, please enjoy this gallery spotlighting just a few of his many sartorial highlights.

Netflix Will Stream ‘The Interview’ Starting on Saturday

If you haven’t watched Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s ‘The Interview’ yet, either because you’re too cheap to spend $6 to rent it online, or you were worried North Korean hackers would catch you buying it and share your private emails slagging your boss with the world (I’m sorry Mike! When I called you “a giant goober,” I meant that in an affectionate way, like Goobers candy! Which everyone loves!) you are in luck. As part of their quarterly letter to shareholders, Netflix announced that they will “exclusively” offer the comedy to its U.S. and Canadian customers starting this Saturday, January 24. Sorry Netflix Netherlands! You’re out of luck for now.

Sylvester Stallone Promises More ‘Rambo’ (After He First Makes More ‘Rocky’)

“Nothing is over!” These are the words of Col. John J Rambo, the hero of ‘First Blood’ (better known as ‘Rambo’) and then ‘Rambo: First Blood Part II’ and then ‘Rambo III’ (the only one people call by its actual title and then ‘Rambo’ (better known as ‘Old Rambo’). After what basically amounts to a movie-long chase, ‘First Blood’ concludes with a heartfelt speech from star Sylvester Stallone, explaining how nothing (meaning the Vietnam War) is over for him; that his mind is too scarred from his brutal deeds and by the cruel treatment he’s received on the homefront. It’s a powerful (if occasionally incomprehensible) scene.
