    Watch: Everybody Cut Loose In This Uninspired 'Footloose' Trailer

    It’s hard to pinpoint when exactly this '80s nostalgia virus seemed to grip the globe in such a breathless ecstasy-hold. Hollywood has already come for "beloved" films from that decade, either in the form of aerobicized remakes starring Kelsey Grammer (“Fame”) or laughable sequels (“Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights”) and no-one spoke out, so we only have ourselves to blame for this long-threatened “Footloose” remake, which is finally coming to fruition. Discerning “Archer” fans will excuse this writer as he invokes another Kenny Loggins song that doesn't share this film's title and ventures that we’re probably careening wildly into "The Danger Zone" with this one.

    Commence Bleeding From the Eyeballs: New Vampire Project 'Blood Wars' Announced

    Everyone get ready to shake their butt to the Monster Mash for the sixty millionth time, as that ‘vampire trend’ everyone warned you about in 2008, having clogged up the film industry’s arteries for three years now, begins manifesting itself as a massive uncontrollable death-rattle coronary before – with any luck -- finally spasming out and flat-lining. The Wrap reports that the new project clamoring for our attention is “Blood Wars”, and will involve a “radical reinvention of vampire mythology”, whatever that means. Unless the next twist on the vampire ‘mythos’ will be, hopefully, to disappear forever, there is no way that any part of that statement can be true.

    "Conan O'Brien Can't Stop": Touring as Anger Management

    “It’s like a gall stone,” Conan O’Brien says about his fury at the way he was treated when Jay Leno swiped back the Tonight show. “It just has to work its way through my urethra . .. . and then I’ll be through with those fuckers at NBC.” This doc about his post-Tonight live tour charts that painful process – performing as anger-management therapy -- convinces us that his anger was rooted in a deep sense of fairness, and also manages to be a high-energy, thoroughly entertaining film.

    Drake's "Marvin Room" Is Really, Really Awesome

    So it's been roughly a year since I transitioned from the opinion "why is that guy from Degrassi rapping" to "um... do I kind of love Drake?" And now he has continued his winning streak with me personally via one of two surprisingly mid-tempo tracks he purposely leaked from his fall album "Take Care." Entitled "Marvin's Room" (for reasons I don't quite get: enlighten me), it's smooth, moody, and oddly catchy. Detailing with considerable vulnerability his quest for the girl that got away amidst his growing fame-related hedonism, for the past few days I've grown mildly obsessed with it. And that's despite its genre, as mid tempo R&B generally repels me quite considerably. Here's to Drake, for injecting some serious talent and innovation into mainstream music:
