How 'Roseanne' changed the average prime-time family

If one were to assess the American economy in 1987 strictly by examining television's most popular sitcom families, they would be forced to conclude that it was thriving.

All of these broods were comfortably middle class...

In a speech at the 2013 San Francisco International Film Festival, Steven Soderbergh assayed the state of filmmaking and confessed that whenever he sees his colleagues getting “weepy” about the death of celluloid, he thinks of a quote from pioneering director Orson Welles: “I don’t want to wait on the tool.

What the Grammys could learn from the Country Music Awards

Almost two months after the 2018 awards ceremony, the Grammys are still making news – and almost all of it is bad.

We all pine for the carefree days of high school from time to time, but if we're being honest with ourselves, the good old days weren't always so hot. The worst of it was the heartbreak.

20 reboots that actually went right

Hollywood is often lazy. It looks at what works in the past, and it tries to replicate its success again (and, sometimes, again and again after that). Oftentimes, these attempts at rehashing the old fail miserably. But once in a while, a modern take on an old idea turns out pretty well. With the reboot of "Tomb Raider" set to hit theaters on March 16, here are 20 examples of reboots...

The King of Cockney Cool: The best of Michael Caine

Born on March 14, 1933 to a fish porter and a charwoman, Maurice Joseph Micklewhite, Jr. aka Michael Caine was the antithesis of the polished Shakespearian-trained thespians England put out into the world.

New worst classics: The best so-bad-they're-good films of the past ten years

Every year, the Golden Raspberry Awards do a great job of playfully reminding us of the worst cinematic excrement to plop out of Hollywood.
