‘Jagged Little Pill’ Broadway Review: Hot Buttons, Alanis Morissette Songs And One Very Troubled Family

  • Deadline
In Jagged Little Pill, a record album gets its own jukebox musical, though there’s none of the Wikipedia-style rat-a-tat biographical highlights (airbrushed or otherwise) that accompanied Donna Summer, The Temptations and all the other post-Jersey Boys superstars on their trips to the stage. With an earnest, ambitious and overwrought year-in-the-life tale of a fictional, stereotypical suburban Connecticut family strapped to the music of Alanis Morissette – particularly the star-making 1995 album that gives the show, opening tonight on Broadway at the Broadhurst Theatre, its title – Jagged Little Pill is a very crowded home to big issues, societal worries, and, oddly enough, storybook outcomes.

But in case anyone needed reminding: Those songs, with Morissette’s blistered lyrics and the irresistible melodies and rhythms (co-written with her producer Glen Ballard) really were pretty great.

Still are, in fact. With Tom Kitt’s attractively amped-up arrangements and performances by an impeccable cast

10 Underrated Teen Movies Of The Last 20 Years

If there's one person to thank for giving us the teen movie genre, it's John Hughes. His 1980s hits The Breakfast ClubSixteen Candles, and more awakened our need for Hollywood films about frothy yet angsty adolescence. The 1990s carried the torch from there, giving us several high school-set flicks starring the likes of Jennifer Love Hewitt and Freddie Prinze Jr..

Retro-spective: Jet Force Gemini

  • Nerdly
As far as shooters go, it’s not my favourite genre. I have nothing against them but I’m a very story-focused gamer and shooters can sometimes be light on that. However, like anything in life, there are exceptions to the rule. I grew up with a Nintendo 64 as a kid which would spoil you with great shooters, especially from a company known as Rareware. There was Goldeneye and Perfect Dark but the one that really stuck with me was Jet Force Gemini which has recently turned twenty years old.

Jet Force Gemini centres around twins Juno and Vela and their military dog, Lupus, who are part of a space military squadron called Jet Force. At the beginning, they’re the survivors of an attack by space tyrant, Mizar, but they don’t get away for long. In the midst of the ambush, the three of them are forced to

Hulu in November: Here’s Everything Coming and Going

  • The Wrap
Fall is upon us, and so is Hulu’s list of every title coming and going from the streaming service in November.

Among the list of arriving titles is a new episode of Hulu’s original monthly anthology series, “Into the Dark.” November’s episode is called “Pilgrim,” and claims to be inspired by true events — in which a woman invites a bunch of Pilgrim re-enactors over for Thanksgiving dinner. But things get spooky when the “actors” refuse to break character.

Other new arrivals include Season 5 of “You’re the Worst,” described as a modern look at love, the complete first seasons of “Dollface,” about a young woman re-entering the world of women, “The Accident,” which begins with a deadly explosion at a construction site, and “Love Island: Australia,” an answer to the U.K. and U.S. versions of the beloved reality dating show.

Oscar spotlight: Rob Morgan is a strong supporting actor contender in ‘Just Mercy’

Oscar spotlight: Rob Morgan is a strong supporting actor contender in ‘Just Mercy’
Historical legal drama “Just Mercy” is a strong contender in the Best Supporting Actor race, but have pundits pegged the right performance? For his pivotal part as the wrongfully-convicted Walter “Johnny D.” MacMillan, hundreds of Gold Derby users are predicting Oscar winner Jamie Foxx for another nomination, but character actor Rob Morgan could also break through for playing fellow death row inmate Herbert Richardson. His tragic Ptsd-ridden character embodies the stakes of the story, as well as its heart.

SEEwhy “Just Mercy” is a Best Actor contender for Michael B. Jordan.

The supporting role with the most screen time is not always the one that gains traction on the awards circuit. Titular roles are occasionally subverted for sympathetic characters that elicit warmth from scant material, like when Mahershala Ali received his first Oscar nomination and win for 2016’s “Moonlight” with a quiet performance that was limited to the first third of the film.

Why It Took Jennifer's Body 10 Years to Get the Respect It Always Deserved

Why It Took Jennifer's Body 10 Years to Get the Respect It Always Deserved
Jennifer's Body seemed like a sure thing. Diablo Cody was hot off an Oscar win for Best Original Screenplay following the success of her debut film, Juno. And Megan Fox was hot off a star-making turn in the Transformers franchise. So, the idea of them coming together for a horror-comedy film that allowed a female to be the villain, with a female director, to boot, was what we call in the biz a no-brainer.  And then, ten years ago on September 18, 2009, the thing came out. And, reader, it was not a hit. Critics were not kind to the film, directed by Karen Kusama, which focused on two best friends, the nerdy Anita, or "Needy" (Amanda Seyfried), and popular Jennifer (Fox) as they find...

‘Jennifer’s Body’ Turns 10: Megan Fox, Diablo Cody and Karyn Kusama Reflect on Making the Cult Classic

‘Jennifer’s Body’ Turns 10: Megan Fox, Diablo Cody and Karyn Kusama Reflect on Making the Cult Classic
Months before “Jennifer’s Body” hit multiplexes on Sept. 18, 2009, writer Diablo Cody had a feeling the edgy horror-comedy would tank. And flop it did, despite the screenwriter taking home an Oscar for her debut film “Juno” a year earlier. Cody easily found a studio to finance “Jennifer’s Body” after the success of the Ellen Page-led teen pregnancy comedy, but the disappointing marketing strategy and pans from focus groups and critics seemed to be a sure recipe for box office collapse. Fast forward a decade, and now, the film is regarded as a cult classic.

“Jennifer’s Body” grossed a lackluster $31.6 million worldwide on a $16 million budget and was significantly beaten out by 2009 horror flicks “Paranormal Activity,” “Zombieland,” “The Final Destination” a remake of “Friday the 13th.” Megan Fox — who became a Hollywood sex symbol after her depiction of Mikaela Banes in the 2007 film “Transformers” — starred, and Cody said that because of her image,

‘Babyteeth’ Film Review: Australian Doomed-Teen Dramedy Hides Its Tougher Questions Behind Frills and Filigree

‘Babyteeth’ Film Review: Australian Doomed-Teen Dramedy Hides Its Tougher Questions Behind Frills and Filigree
“Babyteeth,” to put it lightly, has a lot going on. With her feature debut and one of only two films directed by women in the Venice main competition, Australian theatre-television director Shannon Murphy swings for the fences. She whips up a candy-colored dramedy that toggles between tear-jerky terminal illness melodrama, Y.A.-friendly opposites-attract love story, and tongue-in-cheek appraisal of middle-aged malaise — all while giving the various strands the same quirky coat of paint.

Does it all work? Not quite, but you can’t fault a film for its ambition, least of all one that does manage to bring it all together for a deeply moving home stretch.

Like its bewigged main character, “Babyteeth” tries on a number of looks over its two-hour runtime. Some fit better than others, and if the film eventually settles on that which works best, it takes some time to get there.

Hulu in September: Here’s Everything Coming and Going

Hulu is out with its list of new and expiring content for the month of September, and what better way to beat the back-to-school blues than with a whole bunch of binge-watching.

Among the new goodies coming next month is the 12th episode and season finale of horror anthology series “Into the Dark.” Out Sept. 6, the finale is called “Pure,” and is described as a female coming-of-age horror story in which a group of teenage girls perform a secret ritual at a “Purity Retreat.” When one of them begins to see a “supernatural entity,” a scary question is posed: “What is more dangerous: the demon they’ve unleashed, or the pressure to conform to their fathers’ expectations?” Scary indeed!

The Hulu original documentary “Untouchable” will be released on Sept. 2, described as “the inside story of the meteoric rise and shocking fall of movie titan Harvey Weinstein.” Directed by Ursula Macfarlane,

A Very, Very Intimate Evening With Sarah McLachlan
“People have this preconceived notion of me, and often it upsets them when I try to set the record straight,” said 30-year-old Sarah McLachlan in a 1998 Rolling Stone interview. “But at this point I could give a shit if the Internet is all atwitter. You wouldn’t believe the video treatments we get. It’s all me on some white stallion with long, flowing robes in a forest. Jesus Christ, enough already!”

Bria Vinaite on Life After ‘The Florida Project’: ‘I Didn’t Know What to Do With Myself’

Bria Vinaite on Life After ‘The Florida Project’: ‘I Didn’t Know What to Do With Myself’
Before Bria Vinaite landed her breakout role in Sean Baker’s Oscar-nominated 2017 film “The Florida Project,” she was selling marijuana-themed outerwear on Instagram. Raised in Brooklyn and born in Lithuania, she had the specific kind of no-nonsense vibe Baker was seeking for the role of Halley, a single mother and sex worker living with her daughter in a rundown Florida motel next to Disney World. Along with Brooklynn Prince, another Baker discovery who played Halley’s daughter, Moonee, Vinaite earned unadulterated praise for her raw and charismatic performance. Once the film entered the awards race and picked up a slew of accolades, Vinaite’s life changed drastically, launching a burgeoning acting career for which she had very little preparation.

“I got home after four months on the press tour and I was so depressed,” the 26-year-old recently told The Independent. “I was like, ‘Oh, I don’t have a hundred people taking my picture anymore?
