Sure, when you think of actors who have died a lot on screen, there's probably one name that instantly comes to mind: Sean Bean. But don't let the 'Game of Thrones' actor's constant dying-off fool you, there are lots of other actors who bite it all the time. Like Gary Oldman, who is apparently in the top ten of actors who die the most on screen (who exactly is crunching these numbers?).
Every film is a cultural artifact. As singular works of art, movies are their own self-contained contributions to popular culture, but their often essential inclusion of things like music, fashion, and slang within their own narratives puts them into a unique space – art wrapped around art, culture enveloped in culture. It’s why even bad period-set films are so fun to watch, as seeing canny cultural representations is almost always amusing, if not a bit intriguing. Blame it on nostalgia, shared memory, or even a good old-fashioned affection for otherwise forgotten pop culture snippets, but movies that work hard to accurately depict a time period or an era always have an extra it of built-in entertainment.
Tacking on a “based on a true story” tag has always helped bolster the scare factor of horror films, but its usage has become increasingly more frequent (and less fact-based) in recent years – though that doesn’t mean we’re suddenly in the golden age of reality-based horror films. Just because a film boasts about its real world roots doesn’t mean it’s always true. What’s really scary is how often it’s not.
Last week, Jimmy Fallon asked his loyal 'Tonight Show' audience to send in videos of their children making their best funny faces -- classic kid antics -- without indicating exactly what said videos would be used for. Of course, this is Jimmy Fallon, so the news that the late-night host employed the videos for another one of his celebrity-baiting games shouldn't be too shocking.
Jimmy Fallon must have some kind of death wish -- after all, what sort of nut would ban dancing from their 'Tonight Show' and then invite Kevin Bacon on as a guest? There's a historical precedent here that's hard to ignore. Kevin Bacon loves dancing. You can't take dancing away from Kevin Bacon. Step back. Or, rather, get back.
