Retro Movie Review: ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ (1952) – Fathom Events

Singin' in the Rain Gene Kelly Debbie Reynolds fathom events

Singin’ in the Rain is universally renowned as one of the greatest musicals of all time. In 2007, the American Film Institute ranked it as the fifth greatest film ever made. 2017 marks the 65th anniversary of the film’s release in 1952 and to commemorate the event, Fathom Events and TCM’s Big Screen Classic series have brought it back to theaters for two days only. Not only do audiences get to take in a pure classic, but they also get to pay a final respect to the late great Debbie Reynolds, whose career was launched thanks to the film. I have attended and reviewed many of the screenings from Fathom and TCM and this one had the largest crowd by far. The show was sold out; my family and I sat in the very top row, and the 7:00pm show was sold out by 1:30 in the afternoon.

Last season on Colony, we met the Beaumans. Will (Josh Holloway) was former FBI recruited by the new government for his skills, and agreeed to get his missing son back. Katie (Sarah Wayne Callies) was recruited by Broussard (Tory Kittles) to join the Resistance and spy on her husband. As you can imagine, that did not work out too well, or stay secret for more than 2 seconds. Both sides did questionable things – betrayal, murder, theft, chaos – just a perfect little family. Everything was out in the open at the end as Will and Katie took a stand on opposite sides, and Katie ended up alone.

Spoilers ahead.

Predator Goes Hunting For Pokémon … With The Help Of ‘Pokémon GO’ (Video)
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Predator Pokémon GO

Perhaps you’ve heard of a mobile game called Pokémon GO. It’s that thing that every single person you know was talking about this past summer.

The game is so popular, in fact, that even one of the alien hunters from the Predator movies is getting in on the action. The Predator, however, goes a little overboard with their gaming session. They take their hunting quite seriously, you know.

You can check out the video of how this Pokémon GO session went below.

This Is Us 111-03

This Is Us
Episode 1.11 “The Right Thing to Do”
Directed by Timothy Busfield
Written by Aurin Squire, Kay Oyegun
Created by Dan Fogelman
Starring Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Ron Cephas Jones, Susan Kelechi Watson, Chris Sullivan, Jon Huertas, Eris Baker, Faithe Herman, Lonnie Chavis, Mackenzie Hancsicsak, Parker Bates
Air date: Tuesday, January 10th, 2017, 9:00pm ET

Last time on This Is Us, the mantra was… “Nothing bad ever happens on Christmas Eve.” It was Christmas time for everyone, and in the past, Kate had to get her appendix taken out on Christmas Eve, while Dr. K may be dying. In the present, Randall (Sterling K. Brown) thought his family night would be a wash as everyone seemed to cancel. He went to his office party and literally talked a friend off a ledge. Then all of his family showed up and it was as lovely as you could expect. Even William’s (Ron Cephas Jones) special friend came – Randall’s kid outed him. Kevin (Justin Hartley) went to Sloane’s (Milana Vayntrub) for Chanukah and it was adorable. Kate (Chrissy Metz) was miserable because she had broken up with Toby (Chris Sullivan), who swooped in and declared he could not live without her in front of his family… then crashed into the table later on with what looked like a heart attack. Okay, that part was not so lovely. It left us hanging as to whether Kate would lose her happiness.

Spoilers below.

“Lord, why are you silent? Why are you always silent?”

In 1988, at a screening for religious leaders of his new film The Last Temptation of Christ, Martin Scorsese was approached by Archbishop Paul Moore, the Episcopal Bishop of New York, who presented the filmmaker with a copy of Shūsaku Endō’s acclaimed novel Silence.

Published in 1966, the novel is the story of Jesuit missionaries sent to 17th century Japan, where they endure persecution in the time of Kakure Kirishitan (“Hidden Christians”) that followed the defeat of the Shimabara Rebellion, an uprising of Catholic Christian peasants during the Tokugawa shogunate’s rule.

‘Rick and Morty’ Intro Re-Created In 8-Bit (Video)
The Movie God   |  @   |  

8-Bit Rick and Morty

There was a time where pretty much every movie or TV show you could think of was getting the 8-bit treatment. You can see a handful of them right here. But they don’t seem to pop up quite as often as they used to these days.

One that has been released this week is a re-creation of the Rick and Morty intro. It’s short, but still fun to watch if you’re a fan of the animated show. It also makes me want a Rick and Morty side-scroller game, which is usually the case after watching videos like this.
