Matthew McConaughey can smell it. Last night he was honoured with the Hollywood Actor Award at the Hollywood Film Awards. As you know, McConaughey’s work in Killer Joe and Mud, followed by his performance in Dallas Buyers Club, is being called the best of his career, considered, by some, to be worth of an Oscar nomination. Full Story

Michael B Jordan was one of three recipients of the Hollywood Spotlight Awards last night in recognition for his work in Fruitvale. Are you tired of me talking about him so much? Too bad! He’s the best. There are a few experts who think that Jordan still has a chance at a nomination for Best Actor but…he’s definitely not a frontrunner, especially when you consider some of the veterans in the race. Full Story

I don’t know if this is so much blonde as it is…orange? It’s sun-in. Do you know sun-in? Sun-in was a product we used back in the day to lighten our hair. You’d spray the sun-in on and then go in the sun. Most of us just cheated and turned on the hair dryer. What came out wasn’t so much blonde as it was…burnt. Full Story

Benedict’s box office boo-boo

So we’ve already discussed today how box office tracking is usually full of sh*t (click here for a refresher), but there is a threshold where it simply doesn’t matter how wonky the numbers are—you can’t deny when a movie sh*ts the bed. Full Story

Predicting a movie’s opening weekend box office is a blood sport in Los Angeles. I’ve got a friend who is a brilliant mathematician, who has dual PhDs and if you met him, you would think he worked for NASA. But no, he works for a firm that specializes in risk assessment for movie studios, and his job is to analyze market data and predict opening weekend box office for movies. Full Story

Harvey Scissorhands is at it again

If you haven’t grasped it by now, Harvey Weinstein is a very difficult figure in film. There is no denying his impact on the US movie industry, especially as a promoter of specialty and indie films, and his role as one of the central figures in the politicization of the Academy Awards. But he’s also got a reputation among filmmakers—has had for years—as a cut-happy editor who will gleefully slice your movie to ribbons in order to make it more marketable. Full Story

Endless Love movie sex

Lainey Posted by Lainey at October 18, 2013 17:26:59 October 18, 2013 17:26:59

When it was announced back in March that they were remaking Endless Love, I wrote about how movie sex isn’t the same anymore. Click here for a refresher. When I was growing up in the 80s and 90s, movie sex used to make me really horny. Now I go for soft core high quality porn (it’s really well shot and the people are always really attractive and there’s no fisting) if I need a little variety because they don’t give it to me the same way anymore in Hollywood. Full Story

Those who don’t enjoy Wes Anderson’s films knock it for their preciousness and pretention. Sometimes, yes. But I will defend The Royal Tenenbaums every day. And how can you hate Bottle Rocket? Also, Moonrise Kingdom was one of my favourite movies of 2012. Maybe my favourite movie of 2012. Full Story
