It’s Dame Angelina now. Queen Elizabeth made Angelina Jolie an honourer Commander of the Most Distinguished Order of St Michael and St George on Friday on a Birthday Honours list that also included Daniel Day-Lewis, Maggie Smith, and Damian Lewis. Some of you complained. And I would agree with you – that she’s a Hollywood star, and an American, and sure she just came off a busy week for the Global Summit To End Sexual Violence In Conflict but there are non-famous heroes who deserve recognition and crabby crabby crabby crabby crabby crabby – but, you know, talk to me when you’re finished bitching about the guy from Homeland. Full Story

Tom Hardy continues to work on Legend in London. It was evidently a wedding scene today, Emily Browning as the bride. She had to pop out for a cigarette during break. I’m not supposed to say this but I love seeing a smoking bride. Because the image is so offensive to some people. Like on my wedding day, in my white dress, when I popped out for a drag, my ma was apoplectic. Full Story

Terrifying what's happening right now. The Visor is having a moment. You know who's been wearing -- or you could say "rocking" -- the visor for years and years and years? You'd know if you've ever been to a Chinese mall. Or played golf. Asian ladies. My ma, the Chinese Squawking Chicken. Full Story

I love old timey country music. I get it from my dad—he loves Woody Guthrie and Willie Nelson and Carl Perkins. He gave me all his Johnny Cash records when I was a kid, and even though he prefers to drive in silence, on road trips he would play Hank Williams because he knew I liked to have music in the car and that was all he could stand to listen to while driving. Full Story

The Birdman trailer has just been released, the latest from Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu and starring Michael Keaton in what many are calling his “comeback”. Birdman also features Edward Norton, Zach Galifianakis, Naomi Watts (who did outstanding work on Inarritu’s 21 Grams), Andrea Riseborough, Amy Ryan, and Emma Stone. Full Story

These are new photos of Tom Hardy on the set of Legend. He’s playing the Kray twins. They were gangsters. Can we talk about The Bodyguard now? My friend-boss Nanci and I, for some reason, have been reminiscing a lot about The Bodyguard lately. The Bodyguard is one of those movies you stop and watch when it comes on television. Full Story

Tilda Swinton and her boyfriend Sandro Kopp were out together in New York yesterday and she wasn’t wearing her Jennifer Aniston wig. She looks right again. And she looks so, so right in this short film for the Mercedes S Class Coupe which is also a love letter to Scotland. Full Story

Still Dumb and Dumber

I don’t think I’ve ever laughed harder in a movie than I did when I first saw Dumb and Dumber. It was a perfect convergence of comedy: I was twelve, Jim Carrey was at the top of his game, and the Farrelly Brothers’ gross-out aesthetic was brand new. Dumb and Dumber felt less like a movie and more like a collection of related skits. Full Story

There’s a rumor going around—a dirty, dirty rumor—that Robert Pattinson, he of the tea-pouring hands and mothering hips, has somehow risen to the top of Disney’s wish list for their inevitable Indiana Jones reboot. Look, Pattinson is not a terrible actor. He’s really not. Full Story

Over the weekend Marvel wrapped up their (desperate) search for a new Ant-Man director after Edgar Wright suddenly dumped their ass a couple weeks ago. After working through a series of comedy directors, they landed on Peyton Reed. Who? Well, nerds are freaking out because he’s “best known” for Jim Carrey’s blah Yes Man (I say that with sarcasti-quotes because implying that Peyton Reed is known outside industry circles is a huge assumption), but Reed is an Upright Citizens’ Brigade affiliate and, more importantly, he directed Bring It On. Full Story
