Mindy Newell: Bend Over

“I won’t be ig-nored, Dan,” said Alex Forest (Glenn Close) to her illicit lover Dan Gallagher (Michael Douglas) in Fatal Attraction. And so said a large enough number of disconcerted people who were fed up with being ig-nored by the political elite gathered around the Potomac basin to swing the Electoral College vote in favor of Donald Trump. Go fuck yourselves, they said. Bend over, said Trump.

It’s been one lie after another, one alternative fact after another, and one tweet after another since the inauguration, all to assuage the ego of the malignant narcissist who sits in the oval office. His sickophants trip over each other in their eagerness to obfuscate the truth and stay in their own bubbles of power. Erstwhile enemies, thugs, and bullies are welcomed and coddled and credit is taken where it is not due. Everything is upside down and inside out. And

A Kiss Before Dying

Robert Wagner as a social climbing psycho killer? I knew it! 'Mr. CinemaScope Smile' grins only once or twice in this movie, and then only to fool an unsuspecting woman. A great cast brings tension to Ira Levin's outrageous tale of murder. Joanne Woodward has a powerful role, but my heartthrob this time out is lovely Virginia Leith. A Kiss Before Dying Blu-ray Kl Studio Classics 1956 / Color / 2:35 widescreen / 95 min. / Street Date May 3, 2016 / available through Kino Lorber / 29.95 Starring Robert Wagner, Jeffrey Hunter, Virginia Leith, Joanne Woodward, Mary Astor, George Macready, Robert Quarry. Cinematography Lucien Ballard Art Direction Addison Hehr Film Editor George A. Gittens Original Music Lionel Newman Written by Lawrence Roman from a novel by Ira Levin Produced by Robert L. Jacks Directed by Gerd Oswald

It's a safe bet that a huge chunk of Americans now identify Robert Wagner as the father of Anthony Dinozzo on TV's NCIS.

50 Best Comic Book Movie Adaptations

20. Story of Ricky (Lik wong) – Starring Siu-Wong Fan as the titular character, Riki Oh, based on a manga series which eventually became an anime, marks the end of an era of Japanese exploitation flicks, before the new generation of filmmakers such as Takashi Miike took over. Unlike Miike’s movies, or other recent entries such as Tokyo Gore Police, Riki Oh’s tone borders on comedy, played up by bad voice dubbing, foolish plot lines, cartoonish gore and eccentric characters (including a one-eyed assistant warden with a hook for a hand). For a prison film, the movie never seems mean-spirited, and if anything it masquerades as a bizarre superhero flick. The effects are the main draw – Riki Oh exists simply to showcase several outlandish set pieces, ramping up the level of violence, gore and action with each new scene. Made before the days of CGI, director Lam relies simply on practical effects,

The Surprisingly Prolific Comic Book Actors

Hugh Jackman has played Logan aka Wolverine in seven different films. It’s an impressive number that will shortly increase with a third solo Wolverine film and possibly X-Men:Apocalypse, although at the time of writing he has yet to be officially cast. A few other names are snapping at the heels of Jackman, notably the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you include the forthcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, Chris Evans has played Captain America four times (five if you include his appearance as Loki using magic to look like the first Avenger in Thor: The Dark World), Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth have portrayed Black Widow and Thor respectively four times each whilst the King of the McU, Robert Downey Jr. has made an impressive six appearances as Iron Man/Tony Stark (including his post-credit appearance in The Incredible Hulk).

Unfortunately for Hugh Jackman, as far as this article is concerned,

The assembled team of superheroes return featuring Chris Evans as Captain America, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk and two new additions, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

Outrage Watch: Diane Warren slams Rita Ora for 'Grateful' non-promotion
Welcome to the February 2 edition of Outrage Watch, HitFix's daily rundown of everything people are peeved about in entertainment. Today's top story? Diane Warren is far from "Grateful" for a certain British pop singer's non-promotion of their Oscar-nominated song. "Outraged" may be a bit of an overstatement here, but the blockbuster songwriter certainly isn't happy with "Black Widow" songstress Rita Ora, who she claims fell down in promoting the pair's Oscar-nominated song from "Beyond the Lights." "I have to be really honest, I don't want to be a jerk or anything, but had I known about this lack of support [from Ora], there are other artists I'm working with that -- if it had been up to me -- I would have gone with," Warren told The Huffington Post, noting that Ora also never responded to she and director Gina Prince-Blythewood's request to shoot a music video for the song.

50 bizarre examples of movie tie-ins and merchandise

Movie merchandise is big business. But some people will try and slap the name of The Avengers or Batman on anything...

Cool film stuff can be almost as fun as actually going to the movies. Think of a Batman cape, an Arnold Schwarzenegger action figure, or Goldeneye on the N64. Hell, the merchandising can often be more enjoyable than the actual film – remember how much fun the first few months of 1999 were before Star Wars: The Phantom Menace was actually released?

Yet, in the chase to make a quick buck out of devoted fans, some... let's just say less relevant, movie merchandise is churned out and flogged to the public.

Here then are 50 of the strangest (not ranked in order!) – expect action figures of obscure henchmen, 16-carat gold Twilight jewellery and some truly vomit-inducing burgers…

13 Actors Who Almost Played Superheroes

There are a lot of "what ifs" in the movie business. There are so many options when it comes to casting actors to play characters in movies. Superhero films are huge right now, and I love most of the actors that studios have cast to play these badass characters. Christian Bale as Batman, Andrew Garfield aa Spider-Man, Henry Cavill as Superman, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man are just a few of many. But these characters could have easily been played by other actors. It's hard to imagine that now since we're already invested in what's in front of our eyes.

I've come up with a list of actors who almost played some of these superheroes. You may already know about some of the close calls on the list, you may not, but when I was researching for this article there were a few things I didn't know before,

The James Clayton Column: Questions for the Marvel Cinematic Universe's future

Feature James Clayton 21 Mar 2014 - 06:02

As Captain America: The Winter Soldier arrives, James considers the future phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe...

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is imminent, and it's only a matter of days until the movie lands at your local multiplex. It will be a massive hit. After the second Steve Rogers solo outing, the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase Two will continue later in the summer with Guardians Of The Galaxy. That will also be a massive hit.

Phase Two finishes with Avengers: Age Of Ultron and that's going to arrive on May Day 2015. That will be a massive hit, as will Ant-Man - directed by Edgar Wright - which will follow a couple of months later to get Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (the McU if you're into the whole brevity thing) underway.

Meanwhile, a string of upcoming live-action Netflix series will join
