Sean Penn joined Charlize Theron at the Palais in Cannes for Mad Max: Fury Road today. Is this supposed to be our substitute for Brange Cannes? Because I reject that. I was however reminded of previous Cannes. There was a year he was there and I was covering it and on the party scene, he was always the last one to go home. Full Story

Ahead of its premiere in Cannes, a teaser for Macbeth has been released featuring Michael Fassbender and ending with Marion Cotillard and the line: What’s done cannot be undone. To bed, to bed, to bed She only says “to bed” once here in the preview but you’ll recall from English class that it’s almost like a mantra for her at that point. Full Story

The first trailer for The Intern, starring Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro, written and directed by Nancy Meyers, was released yesterday. And my first impression is that… This movie is manipulative! Anyone who has an aging dad will be manipulated. Because how do you not watch this and not think of your dad? I think of my dad, I worry about my dad. Full Story

Nostalgia factory to grind up The Craft

The cocaine fueled Everything Is A Good Idea 1990s era of filmmaking produced some of the most insane garbage in the history of cinema. Every decade has its share of bad movies, except the 1990s. In the 90s, “bad” as a category was replaced with “Jesus Christ, how much blow did you DO?”  Everything that came out in that decade is so goddamn weird that there is a movie for every niche, like The Craft, which fills the Teenage Occult Power Fantasy square on the 1990’s What The F*CK Is This Even? bingo card. Full Story

The photo call and presser for Mad Max: Fury Road happened in Cannes this morning. Click here to read my review from yesterday. I have no doubt the audience at the Palais would have loved it. Like I wrote yesterday, the movie is straight up, balls out mental. Full Story

Crimson Peak: I want to go there

The first trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s much anticipated Crimson Peak introduced us to the creepy setting and not much else, but now the international trailer has arrived and it lays out a little more of the story. Mia Wasikowska plays a Victorian lady author who is interested in ghosts and the occult, and Tom Hiddleston seems to be her editor? Publisher? Still not clear. Full Story

I really wanted to be wrong about those Jem and the Holograms shots we looked at, just a few innocent days ago – click here for a refresher. I was…if anything, I was not right enough. What the hell is this sh*t that we’re watching? “Jerrica” doesn’t want to be a star?  NOoooope. Full Story

SPOILERS The D Train is not going to be for everybody. If you don’t like awkward humor, you won’t like this movie as it is so awkward at times it’s difficult to watch without full-body cringing. Jack Black gives a terrific weirdo performance, echoing his FANTASTIC turn as a buttoned-up weirdo in Richard Linklater’s delightful Bernie, but if you don’t like movies starring weirdos, you won’t like this movie. Full Story

Spoilers ahead… I screened Mad Max: Fury Road a couple of weeks ago in Toronto with just two other people. I can’t wait to see it again in a full theatre. Some movies you want to enjoy by yourself. Others are best experienced in a collective. Not that I didn’t have a great time, not that I wasn’t totally entertained, but Fury Road is a group experience. Full Story

The Fifth Element is such a great movie. It’s a mess, don’t get me wrong, but it’s so fun in its messiness—I’ll always take a little mess in exchange for ambitious, original ideas. But it was also a huge financial disaster, and director Luc Besson didn’t make another live-action science fiction movie until last year’s Lucy. Full Story

It’s that time of year again, time for the Cannes Film Festival. It’s a Brange-free Cannes this year, which is a bummer because Cannes Brange is Best Brange, but there are a LOT of good looking movies on the festival slate. It’s not the same as Brange porn, I know, but it’s still something. Full Story
