Kickstarting Paper Chase with the Top Five Black Characters in Mainstream Teen Movies

We love teen movies. We’ve seen everything from Say Anything to Whatever It Takes, Pretty In Pink to Drive Me Crazy. Name a teen movie that was in theaters and chances are we’ve seen it twice. But while we love these films we were always taken aback by the lack of diversity. Though Kid and Play and films like House Party and Class Act shook things up by adding some brown faces to the teen movie mix, it is still bleak out there. This void inspired us to make our own teen movie Paper Chase. Paper Chase is a comedy […]

Classroom Chaos: Top Ten High School Outsiders

  • SoundOnSight
One of the hardest bouts of growing pains experienced by adolescents is that rite of passage known as the high school experience. In high school one is subject to discovering their own sense of self-identity and purpose. In fact, sometimes the social factor is crucial because the cost of belonging in social-related circles is vital in a four-year commitment to belonging among your peers.

The tension is high to belong and get along as your search for excellence in good grades, social interaction and the overall learning experience is important. However, not every youngster can cope with what they are faced as the obstacles to excel are demanding in high school. Hence, the potential to become “an outsider” is inevitable and the unlikeliest label that no one can overcome no matter how much they try.

The movies have been instrumental in capturing such heavy-handed angst and frustration of the tortured

  • VH1.com
By Christopher Rosa

Screen legend James Garner died of natural causes at his home in Los Angeles on Saturday. He was 86 years old. Garner’s most recent work was voicing Shazam in the 2010 short animated film Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam; however, his extensive résumé dates back to 1956.

Garner’s most notable film roles include The Great Escape (1963), The Americanization of Emily (1964), Grand Prix (1966), the music-packed Victor Victoria (1982), and Murphy’s Romance (1985), for which he received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor. He is perhaps best known for the television series Maverick and The Rockford Files, the latter of which won him an Emmy for his performance in 1977. Garner also played wise-cracking grandpa Jim Elgan on ABC’s 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter from 2002 to 2005.

New fans of Garner may recognize him for his work in The Notebook (2004), where he played the elder NoahDuke” Calhoun,

'Homeland' Recap: Great Expectations

'Homeland' Recap: Great Expectations
You know that moment in this week's installment of Homeland where Carrie Mathison takes off the polygraph equipment and ends her big "job interview" with terrorist mastermind Majid Javadi, and Javadi's all "What. Are. You. Doing?" That's kind of a familiar sensation after watching this episode, isn't it? For both good and bad, "Still Positive," directed by Lesli Linka Glatter from a script by Alexander Cary and Barbara Hall, threw curveballs left and right. Some of them landed right in the strike zone, but others beaned the proverbial batter.

Let's start with the strong stuff.

"Previously, on Homeland . . ." Hearing that simple phrase in the dulcet tones of Mandy Patinkin can make me as twitchy and shifty-eyed as Nick Brody after a video chat with Abu Nazir. I mean, okay, I'm still on board with the mission, but it's murder on my nerves and sometimes I wish I could just hide in a cabin somewhere, you know?
