Finally I can bring you clips and some of featurettes from the two-disc Planet Terror DVD! Both Riikka and I have been having problems with our video editing and encoding software for months, but we think (*crosses fingers*) we have them worked out now. So I have finally gotten around to making the clips from Planet Terror, which so many of you were asking for. It was incredibly hard choosing scenes because Rose is just amazing in the entire movie, but these is merely a teaser of the goodness of Cherry Darling! If you have not seen the film, seriously, what are you waiting for?! You can pick up a copy right over on Amazon. Download all the film clips and some of the DVD featurettes trimmed down in the video vault.

I have also added a massive new batch of ear candy on the audios page. 😉 Rose has so many funny and memorable lines from her films, I personally love popping them on my iPod (or listing on the PC) so I thought others would want to do the same! More of these shall come with time. Anyways, happy downloading!

I come bearing goods! Thanks to the great Rose fan Michael, I was finally able to create screencaptures and clips from one of Rose’s rarest movies, The Killing Yard. It has never been released on DVD, only on VHS, and hence is harder to come by. However, it is a great watch as Rose plays a character unlike any other she’s ever played and does a lovely job as Linda Borus. Enjoy the downloads!

A little bit of trivia: we now have screencaptures of all of Rose’s movies – except for Seed. But then again, I’m yet to encounter a fan who’s ever even seen it, it is that rare. Here’s to hoping we’ll get it one day!

Not a while lot is going on in the McGowan fandom at the moment so I thought I’d post this little tidbit from Page Six, which mentions that Rose will be attending a new event next week:

THAT Chloe Sevigny will help BlackBook magazine celebrate its Hollywood issue at the Thompson Beverly Hills Hotel on Tuesday with the likes of Jaime Pressly, Rose McGowan and Janet Jackson.

As you may remember, Rose graced the cover of BlackBook back in April/May 2007.

Update: Rose did not attend this event.

Also, our awesome forum members managed to dig up pictures from a Marni dinner that Rose, along side Amber Valletta and Angela Lindvall, hosted back in October. I remember reading articles about this but never actually finding any pics so it is great to see some now.

I have put up a new layout in the Fan Archives today, featuring the amazing shoot for Park Avenue from last year, as well as added some great new fan art. Something really cool you should check out in particular is a collage of lots of Rose pictures made by Brandon. It’s really neat! Something else really nice is that we have nearly 1,000 fan art pieces features Ms. McGowan! Thanks to all of you for donating this past year. And remember, you can still mail in any fan art you might have made by using the site’s contact form.

I hope you like the new look – but, as always, if you prefer the previous just select it from the drop-down tab. 😉

Rose McGowan, who recently wowed audiences with her performance in the movie double-feature Grindhouse, is coming to Turner Classic Movies (TCM) in March 2008 as co-host of The Essentials, the network’s signature movie showcase. McGowan will take a chair opposite TCM host Robert Osborne, just as she did during TCM’s recent Guest Programmer month in November. Starting Saturday, March 8 at 8 p.m., Osborne and McGowan will introduce “must see” movies each week with an eye toward helping viewers better understand why these films are important and the impact they had on audiences and the culture at large.

“During our many shoots with Guest Programmers this year, we encountered a lot of celebrities who impressed us with their knowledge and love of classic film,” said Tom Brown, vice president of original programming for TCM. “But Rose really stood out, because she was so passionate and insightful. We thought it would be great for her to share her passion with the audience by co-hosting The Essentials in 2008.”

McGowan’s first film as co-host of The Essentials will be Billy Wilder’s serious-yet-comic classic The Apartment, which earned the Oscar® for Best Picture of 1960. McGowan notes that Wilder is “the master of humorous loneliness.” Other featured films will include Rebecca (“a great, atmospheric gothic-horror-romance,” McGowan said); Paths of Glory (“not a war film, but a horror film about a man’s ego”); Modern Times (“Chaplin is great at intertwining social commentary with physicality”); A Face in the Crowd (which stars Andy Griffith and is “a great example of why actors shouldn’t be typecast”); Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (“a masculine film with great, subversive feminism”); and Woman of the Year (“proves you can be a feminist and still be a man”).

Remember that two months back Rose mentioned in the Q&A that she would co-host The Essentials with Robert Osborne on Turner Classic Movies? “Something I’m so excited to tell you is that I’m going to be co-hosting The Essentials with Robert Osborne on Turner Classic Movies. I’m beyond excited. To be discussing classic films with a brilliant film historian is a dream come true. The only thing that would make it more perfect would be to have my beloved Bug and Fester by my side. I suppose that IS too much to ask. :)))”

Well, TCM have officially announced it in the press this week! Check out this report from NY Post:

Charmed co-star Rose McGowan will join TCM’s Robert Osborne to co-host The Essentials beginning March 8. McGowan is no stranger to TCM; she was a “guest programmer” with Osborne last November.

On The Essentials, Osborne and McGowan will introduce interesting movies, starting with Billy Wilder’s The Apartment, which won an Oscar in 1960 with costars Jack Lemmon, Shirley MacLaine and Fred MacMurray.

Here’s to hoping that we’ll see a cameo appearance from Rose’s beloved pups! 😉 Either way, this is indeed exciting news!

Some sites have published their annual “Best and Worst” of 2007 lists and sitting on many is Grindhouse! I know it’s personally my favorite movie of last year. The movie also sits at #170 of’s top 250 movies of all time. Here are a few excerpts as well as scans from Entertainment Weekly‘s Best of 2007 December 28th issue and Wizard – May 2007.

It’s a real shame that Grindhouse performed so poorly, although it’s nice to see Tarantino and Rodriguez get a dose of reality. Although the films don’t really have a good repeat value, the experience of seeing this in the theater with the faux trailer was more than epic. It was the experience of a lifetime… too bad you all missed it. Suckers.

From Entertainment Weekly
Its commercial failure is easily explained: In the ADD era, asking audiences to sit through a three-hour double feature of droolingly fetishized meta-trash was madness. Yet Grindhouse is a scuzz marvel, a feast for B-movie junkies. Robert Rodriguez’s zombie orgy Planet Terror, starring Rose McGowan and her machine-gun leg, may be the slyest genre send-up ever; it’s the Far From Heaven of schlock, with a wink of a giggle embedded in every faux-grimy frame. As for Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof, it’s more than the most stupendous car chase since… you name it. It’s also a rock-on vision of sexual warfare, with Kurt Russell’s sleazy Stuntman Mike using his demolition-mobile as a carnal battering ram, only to run headlong into a new age of much faster pussycats.
