Nostalgia factory to grind up The Craft

Sarah Posted by Sarah at May 14, 2015 15:53:38 May 14, 2015 15:53:38

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

Sarah Posted by Sarah at May 13, 2015 20:18:43 May 13, 2015 20:18:43

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

This Movie Is A Fraud

Duana Posted by Duana at May 13, 2015 19:10:57 May 13, 2015 19:10:57

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

Film Review: The D Train

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

Luc Besson returns to weird with Cara Delevingne

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

Cannes Preview 2015

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

Sarah Jessica Parker was on top of the Bloomingdale’s sign yesterday in New York for a photo shoot. It’s supposed to be for her shoe line. But she also Instagrammed this:     Well. I guess the cat's out of the (little brown) bag. As usual, we will keep you posted on every detail as we are able. I'm under strict gag order until then. Xx, Sj Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Thank you for you emails last week about Pitch Perfect 2, demonstrating your enthusiasm for the return of the Barden Bellas. As Duana put it the other day – the real question is how many times are you seeing it? Like do you just turn around after the first show and start queuing for the next? Or do you play like it’s high school again and sneak into the theatre next door for the second half and the big finale? There’s nothing like a big singalong movie finale.  Read Full Intro

Jem and No Holograms

Duana Posted by Duana at May 11, 2015 20:05:32 May 11, 2015 20:05:32

Okay, well on the one hand, they look cool. Here are the first pictures from the Jem And The Holograms movie. The 80s may be back or not be back in various forms, but the pleather and triangles on the costumes are getting me where I need to be. I hope every song in this thing is unapologetically poppy and embraces the synthesizer and the power chords. Full Story
