Ally Sheedy

Ally Sheedy rose to fame as part of the Brat Pack in the 1980’s.  In the middle of the decade, she starred in two of the most iconic coming-of-age movies of the decade.  Like a lot of her fellow Brat Packers, Sheedy’s  movie career cooled off quickly as the decade came to an end.  In the 90’s, Sheedy seemed to disappear.

Fear the Walking Dead: Pilot


FWD - Pilot

The premiere episode of the spin-off series, Fear the Walking Dead, was titled Pilot.  Autopilot would have been more appropriate.  Zing!  The parent series, The Walking Dead, does one thing really well: zombie gore.  For five years, the creative genius behind the series’ practical effects have found new and creative ways to give audiences goose-flesh.  Where The Walking Dead tends to fall down a lot are areas like plot, pacing and character development.  The pilot episode of Fear the Walking Dead demonstrate what happens when the creators of The Walking Dead dedicate an hour and a half of television to all of their many weaknesses while barely teasing their strengths.

Review: Straight Outta Compton


Parental Advisry

“You’re now about to witness the strength of street knowledge”

When I heard that a movie about the seminal rap group NWA was on the way I felt a combination of excitement and unease. Excitement because I’d been a fan of the group since the early 90’s and knew there was cinematic potential in their story. Unease because many musical bio-pics tend to be uneven and formulaic. The two most recent ones, the Clint Eastwood directed Four Seasons tribute Jersey Boys and the James Brown bio-pic Get On Up both fell into that category. Even the better ones (Walk The Line) have their flaws.

Edward Furlong

Edward Furlong’s first movie was a critically acclaimed box office smash.  He was thirteen years old when he became famous overnight for playing a boy who was destined for greatness.  At the time, it seemed like great things might have been in Furlong’s future as well.  But almost immediately, Furlong went down a dark path of addiction, legal problems and charges of domestic abuse.  This once promising young actor is now considered to be a cautionary tale.

What the Hell Happened to Christian Slater?


lebeau:

Today, Slater has found some degree of success on the small screen in the critically acclaimed TV show, Mr. Robot. That success comes after four previous TV shows were canceled due to low ratings. Slater has spent the last several years starring in a seemingly endless parade of direct-to-video movies alongside the likes of Val Kilmer and Cuba Gooding Jr. In this updated WTHH entry, I have added coverage of Slater’s early work as a child actor which was surprisingly traumatic. There’s additional details about Slater’s crushes on his co-stars and his chronic legal problems.

When Christian Slater came onto the scene, he was compared to a young Jack Nicholson.  In the late 80’s and early 90’s he was one of Hollywood’s most talked-about actors.  While he never really headlined any massive box office hits, he sure seemed like a big time movie star.  Slater also made headlines with his frequent run-ins with the law.  By 2011, the internet was buzzing with rumors that he was dead.
