This Best Actor race is the tightest category face-off in years. Like Lainey wrote yesterday, it might be too close to call. But since Oscar voting ends on Tuesday, the top three contenders — Eddie Redmayne, Michael Keaton and Bradley Cooper — are now in the final phase of campaigning, which means it's time to kiss babies. Full Story

The new Cameron Crowe movie… For a while there it had no title. Now that it has a trailer, it has to have a title: Aloha. So. Yeah. The name is sh-t. But the cast. This cast! Bradley Cooper Emma Stone Rachel McAdams John Krasinski Bill Murray Alec Baldwin Jay Baruchel Danny McBride This should not be a problem. Full Story

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. trailer is vintage porn

It’s all kinds of porny—suit porny, handsome-guy-porny, spy porny—but mostly it’s straight vintage porn. The first trailer for Guy Ritchie’s The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is here and it looks amazing. I mean literally, it LOOKS amazing. Ritchie has always been a stylish director, but this is some next-level retro cinema sh*t that I can’t stop watching. Full Story

I would have liked to see the Sam Taylor-Johnson’s version of Fifty Shades Of Grey without the EL James interference. I would have liked to see her make the movie that was her complete vision. Because you can actually see the internal struggles unfold on film. For starters, it’s too long. Full Story

Like I’ve been saying for weeks, I went in there hoping for the rubs, hoping to see a movie that would get me off. I think we all were – Cynthia Loyst, Jessica Allen, and I went together, with no expectations but with also with no hate. Full Story

Remember when Bridesmaids was a huge hit and we thought it would kick-start a trend of comedies made for grown-ups that happened to feature smart, funny women? Yeah, that…didn’t happen. Instead we got Melissa McCarthy Falls Down and Melissa McCarthy Falls Down 2: Mall Falls. Basically, instead of Bridesmaids being a trendsetter it ended up being an outlier. Full Story

Here are Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan “in character” for W Magazine. Two days. Are you ready? Are you ready to get horny?!!??? Don’t front like you’re not going. They’re projecting $60 million on the low end and $90 million on the high end. That means more than a few of you are going. Full Story

I felt bad going after Jupiter Ascending because while it’s a deeply flawed film, at least the Wachowskis showed some ambition and sincerity in making it. Click here for my review. I don’t feel bad at all about crapping on Seventh Son because it’s a cynical piece of cinematic garbage. Full Story

Yessss. This is how you do a sequel. You push so hard into the deep sequeliness of it that you go Malkovich on your own movie. I read once that sequels are whore’s movies. That is, you make the first one for the love of the story. You make the second one because the first one, surprisingly, made money. Full Story

Right off the top, the thing you care about most: No, this won’t “Norbit” Eddie Redmayne’s Oscar chances because it has far bigger problems than his relatively small performance, but make no mistake: Eddie Redmayne is profoundly terrible in Jupiter Ascending. He gives the most baffling, distracting, ABSURD performance. Full Story
