Some people were wondering whether or not Brad Pitt would be at the Oscars since he’s a producer on The Big Short. It was a Brangeless Oscars. And many of you have written to say that this year’s Oscars were short on big glamour, big excitement. Did that have anything to do with it? Would it have made a difference if they were there? Oh please, come on. Full Story

After what feels like a long wait—but really, they’re right on schedule, it’s just that we’re paying SO MUCH attention to this movie—the first trailer for the all-lady Ghostbusters is here, and it’s pretty great. Just watched the trailer for Bridesmaidsbusters. Full Story

The second of three Olympic-themed movies coming down the pipe—sandwiched in between Race and The Bronze—Eddie the Eagle is a charming crowd-pleaser about a perpetual loser who games the system to become an Olympian. It’s too loosey-goosey with the facts to count as a real biopic—the film includes integral characters conjured out of thin air—but Eddie the Eagle nails the spirit of the underdog story of Michael “Eddie” Edwards, a British Olympian who participated in the 1988 Olympics. Full Story

Spotlight won Best Picture on Sunday at the Oscars. It was one of my top films coming out of TIFF. Yes for Spotlight. Last year Birdman was Best Picture. So that's two in a row for Michael Keaton. Will it be three? Michael's next major role will be Ray Kroc, of McDonald's, in The Founder. Full Story

Stephen King’s Gunslinger series—which spans books, short stories, and comic books—is finally coming to the big screen after a long and convoluted development process that saw it pass through JJ Abrams and Ron Howard, who wanted to do a film franchise/TV series combo to tell the hellishly overcomplicated story that Stephen King just kept writing because no one ever tells him enough. Full Story

Katie Holmes was photographed backstage at the Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday serving Breyer’s ice cream in a blue wrap dress for reasons unknown. Seriously. Take a look at these photos and explain to me how they make any sense. This is a night that celebrates the best in indie film, and a marquee star, who currently has an independent film of her own, Touched with Fire, in theatres is being relegated to serving attendees ice cream backstage. Full Story

Boasting an impressive cast that includes Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Aaron Paul, Anthony Mackie, Woody Harrelson, and Kate Winslet, Gritty Cop Drama is exactly the kind of gritty cop drama you get sucked into watching on cable on a Saturday afternoon. It’s got just enough going on under the hood to not feel like a complete waste of time, but it’s also not interested in saying anything new or interesting about gritty cops, so it’s easy enough to forget all about it once it’s over. Full Story

How much did you love Cruel Intentions? It is the big sister to Gossip Girl – privilege, horny teens and backstabbing on the Upper East Side. And it had some pop culture lasting power – the coke in the crucifix, Selma Blair and Sarah Michelle Gellar’s kiss, the journal reveal. Also, um, it gave us Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon (with an emphasis on Reese, obviously). Full Story
