Top 10 thrilling modern outlaws

Article: Top 10 thrilling modern outlaws

Attention, filmmakers: If you want an audience to get behind a particular character, make him go it alone, force him to do things his own way. Renegade style. Whether he’s fighting for the good of mankind or redefining what constitutes evil, we can’t help but find him intriguing. These are self-sufficient guys with no apologies, few rules, and even fewer questions asked. And here are some of our favorites, our Top 10 Thrilling Modern Outlaws, every one of them airing on Sundance Channel in November.

Don’t let those fangs mislead you. Kristin Bauer, or Kristin Bauer van Straten as we’re supposed to call her now that she’s a married woman, is quite possibly the sweetest woman on Earth. While she might make your knees knock in roles like Pam on True Blood, Kristin’s passionate about animal welfare and environmental issues and she’s an outspoken advocate for whales and victims of animal testing.

We’re excited to get a peek into this renaissance man’s most embarrassing moments on THE MORTIFIED SESSIONS this week, although with a man who lives as out loud as he does, it’s hard to imagine which secrets he might be keeping.

You might know him from his role as Mellish in SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, a high school outcast in DAZED AND CONFUSED, or as the lovable romantic in 2 DAYS IN PARIS.

Top 10 films that will scare the politics out of you

Article: Top 10 films that will scare the politics out of you

Election Day’s proximity to Halloween is more than a boon for manufacturers of freakish-looking rubber Romney and Obama masks; it’s an opportunity to reflect on all manner of partisan terrors. There aren’t many movies that explicitly mix election-year issues with horror-picture tropes, but there are plenty of movies on Sundance Channel this month that will scare the ever-loving politics out of you, at least for a couple of hours at a time.

Article: Top 10 reasons we love Busy Philipps

Busy Phillips is comedy gold, and she’s so softhearted, yet unreserved, that she’s a blast to be around. We’re hooking up with her in the season premiere of THE MORTIFIED SESSIONS on Monday at 10P to get the backstory on what makes Busy, well, Busy! — complete with her most embarrassing childhood moments. But first it’s time to take a little walk through the archives to remember why we love this multitalented star of stage, screen and radio so very much; not only did she star in Dawson’s Creek, Cougar Town, and Freaks and Geeks, she’s also got quite a few other surprises up her sleeve. Read on to find out why we just can’t get enough Busy Phillips.

Top 10 reasons why SECRETARY is better than "Fifty Shades of Grey"

Article: Top 10 reasons why SECRETARY is better than "Fifty Shades of Grey"

You’ve got to give the Fifty Shades of Grey books credit. The erotic trilogy by E.L. James has single-handedly made BDSM mainstream (now everyone knows what a safe word is), been a boon to the sex-toy industry (hello, love beads!) and improved the sex lives of many a long-married couple (a chapter a day will keep the couple’s therapist away!). But that doesn’t mean the series is without its faults, or that there aren’t better depictions of BDSM relationships in popular culture — or at the very least, one better depiction. The 2002 indie film SECRETARY, a Sundance favorite, blows Fifty out of the water, if you ask us. Here’s why.
