Sundance 2013 Preview: 15 films to look out for

Sarah Posted by Sarah at January 16, 2013 19:53:55 January 16, 2013 19:53:55

Oh relax, I’ll keep it short(ish). Ain’t Them Bodies Saints Casey Affleck has appeared in only one movie since the Joaquin Phoenix/I’m Still Here debacle in 2010, and that was the loathsome Tower Heist in 2011. But he’s back now (…good?), starring alongside Rooney Mara and Ben Foster (!!!) in a 1970s-set drama about petty criminals. Full Story

Promotion for Gangster Squad on the talk show circuit is being shouldered, primarily, by Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. I mean, it’s not like they’re going to send Sean Penn out there. And, well, the young ones are just so pretty and fun and polished. Look at Ryan Gosling working late night like a f-cking pro on both Jimmy Kimmel and Conan. Full Story

Finnick...

The new cover of Entertainment Weekly -- Jennifer Lawrence and Sam Claflin as Katniss and Finnick in Catching Fire with a still from the movie on the inside. How you doing? You OK with that? The shot from the film is better, I guess, but whatever it is that’s happening on the front page really isn’t working for me. Full Story

Check out Zac Efron with Imogen Poots shooting Are We Officially Dating? He and his two boys vow not to get girlfriends and then, naturally, he falls in love, and, hold up, hold up... She’s a Quirky Girl, isn’t she? She’s what the internet has termed the Manic Pixie Dream Girl Full Story

Been in LA since Friday to cover 4 junkets, including Gangster Squad and the LA premiere last night. Ryan Gosling wore the sh-t out of his brown suit. And his shoes... I looked down at them when he was being interviewed by the outlet just ahead of me on the carpet and noticed they were...what do you call it when they've been hole-punched, like a strainer? Or a "colander" as I've recently learned. Full Story

At this point, who HASN’T been mentioned for Christian Grey? Wait, I know... Anthony Mackie. Anthony Mackie should be Christian Grey. Anyway, yesterday I wrote about Eddie Redmayne and how, after Les Miserables, he’s now a teen heartthrob. And then many of you shouted back that he appeals to more than just teens and that some people think he should/could be Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey which. Full Story

Palm Springs Film Festival on Saturday night -- the first of several major events in the next 10 days: Oscar nominations are coming Thursday morning followed by the Critics’ Choice Awards that night, and then, of course, the Golden Globes on Sunday. As the later events will probably get a lot more play, Naomi made an understated selection to ease into the season. Full Story

Joseph Gordon-Levitt wants superstardom. He’s already in the mix for the next Batman, carrying into DC/WB’s Justice League movie, and now he’s been revealed as the late entry into Marvel’s casting pool for the lead role in Guardians of the Galaxy, as space captain Peter Quill/Star-Lord. Full Story

Many of you have emailed to fret about some of the reviews. Les Miserables is currently sitting at 72% on Rotten Tomatoes and 61% on Metacritic which doesn’t suck, no, but there have indeed been certain critics who’ve been vicious in their disdain: it’s so melodramatic, and amateurishly so; there are too many close-up shots when people are singing; there is too much singing. Full Story

What to Watch When Christmas Turns You Quaint

Dean Posted by Dean at December 20, 2012 19:30:37 December 20, 2012 19:30:37

I live in New York City. I waste hours a day on the internet. I have serious guilt about my Amazon usage.  I’m bloggin’. The point I’m trying to make is that I’ve pretty much embraced modern urban life. But something changes every year when the holidays arrive and I start to get intense cravings for The Quaint Life. Full Story

Baz makes Leo so pretty

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 20, 2012 18:11:01 December 20, 2012 18:11:01

Leonardo DiCaprio was never so pretty as he was for Baz Luhrmann in Romeo + Juliet. As Dean wrote last week when he eulogised Leo’s sexiness -- click here for a refresher -- that’s the Leo we keep clinging to, the one we see with our memories instead of having to look at him as he is in the real, now. Full Story
