I couldn’t get into Red when it came out in 2010, which is weird as I really love crap action movies, and Red, with its incredibly high-caliber cast was a cut above the average action team-up flick. But even though the cast clearly had a ball making it, I didn’t have a ball watching it. Full Story

Brad Pitt, Zombie Savior

I’ve been highly critical of and already disappointed in World War Z for like, three years now. I’ve called it a nightmare, I’ve been harsh on Brad Pitt’s responsibilities and decision-making regarding this project, and I’m not optimistic for the film’s chances at the box office. Full Story

The Great Gatsby junket happened in New York this weekend. Here’s Leonardo DiCaprio at the press conference. Are you feeling his open shirt? I am not feeling his open shirt. Would it kill him to sell this movie the way he looks in this movie?!? This is not important to the Actor, Lainey. Really? You don’t think his appearance had anything to do with why Baz Luhrmann put him in the f-cking movie? I love the way he looks in the movie. Full Story

It’s a Macbeth-off

Sarah Posted by Sarah at April 30, 2013 14:32:24 April 30, 2013 14:32:24

I really wish someone had done a simulcast of the Macbeth adaptation starring James McAvoy. It got great reviews and McAvoy, a Scot and an actor who does such a killer job communicating suffering is, like, textbook Macbeth. McAvoy’s Macbeth was, by all accounts, an exceptional performance and production. Full Story

Have you heard? Iron Man 3 made more money overseas than The Avengers. It’s already earned $200 million in advance of the domestic opening. Let’s break down RDJ’s recent box office record: Iron Man 3 -- $200 million to date, and it hasn’t even been released in North America The Avengers -- $1. Full Story

As expected, The Bling Ring will be screened at Cannes but not in competition. Not that that matters. All that matters, really, is that Sofia Coppola and her actors will represent on the tapis rouge. Hermione will be on the Croisette for the first time. Here’s Emma Watson in London this weekend walking around with a friend, not unlike the way her character in The Bling Ring walks around West Hollywood, only she’s not wearing celebrity-stolen goods. Full Story

Tiger Eyes

First call up the memory. The dusty book with the library smell and the girl from the book-modelling place (where do they find those people)? The utter unfamiliarity of New Mexico for most of her readers, who were conditioned to believe that all Judy Blume books would happen a train ride away from Manhattan. Full Story

I said once that no matter how bad The Lone Ranger looks, I wouldn’t bet against director Gore Verbinski pulling a rabbit out of his hat and coming up with something entertaining and crowd-pleasing, if not exactly good. Verbinski is the kind of director that exceeds in chaotic conditions and he has a knack for finding solid character beats amidst splashy action sequences. Full Story

Alan Rickman is directing Kate Winslet in a new film called A Little Chaos. It's a period piece. So...now what do you want to watch? Marianne Dashwood, Colonel Brandon, how long has it been since your last viewing of Sense & Sensibility? Recently-ish for me, actually. It was available on a flight late last year. Full Story
