It’s not that Black Mass is bad—it’s too technically proficient to be called “bad”—it’s that it’s…cold. It is unengaging. Yes, Johnny Depp is very good as Boston gangster James “Whitey” Bulger, but we’ve seen him do so many transformations at this point that there’s nothing special about this one. Full Story

Black Mass premiered at TIFF last night. Sarah’s review is coming up. But first…because it’s Johnny Depp, and there’s been so much drama about Johnny and Amber in Toronto, we’re starting there. As I mentioned in my post yesterday – click here Full Story

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck used to have a show called Project Greenlight, in which they and a panel of filmmakers chose a script and a director and set them loose with a small budget to make a movie. It aired three seasons on Bravo from 2001-2005, and the only movie I remember from it is the hilariously bad horror movie, Feast. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

If it’s a major event, Leonardo DiCaprio will want to be there. Check him out at the US Open men’s final yesterday with Adrien Brody, the ever faithful Lukas Haas, and also his current bonafide, Kelly Rohrbach who, as we’ve been told over and over, can totally “hang with the guys  Read Full Intro

Lindsay Lohan’s completely clear, not at all drug-induced late night Instagram post. But if money means more than freedom, stay in California.   they always come back. I love you NYC 💋they always come back. I love you NYC 💋 #godblesstheworld #michaeljackson #rip miss you as my real only private friend. For you: god, for all hurts and wrongs, please let me forgive, Allah please let me be forgiven, and all forgive themselves. Please and thank you. (Someone I was with the night before several towers fell, it felt like not a curse, but more like a spell.. What we think in America is not always clear, we don't have @peta commercials / you just kill deer....with this being said, I'm a girl with a reputation mislead... Like a diamond in the rough, you, now, for 25 years have seen me on TV and screen.. So i am programmed 🔺to stand tough. Black or white - in life, rather than love we create a fight of an ideal situation of an unexceptional, yet unacceptable future that @TMZ @Eonline @HarveylevinTMZ & #harveyweinstein ..couldn't and wouldn't even care to describe any thought of the people we forget to help when a franchise film comes out and, If money means more than freedom- than stay in California. If helping others is a passion, talk to angelina jolie... If you want to be a brilliant actress, work wth Meryl Streep ...at the end of the day- republican or democrats --- BE HERE NOW @oprah and live with integrity. Or go to sleep. The most beautiful life comes cheap. Stop fighting and using artists for distractions. It's boring... 🙏 #UnitedNations Full Story

Evan Rachel Wood and Ellen Page play sisters in Into the Forest and spent the weekend in Toronto. Ellen, Evan and I are the same age. I've watched their careers closely and admire them both for speaking their mind, and standing up for women in Hollywood. Since Ellen has publicly revealed her sexuality and become an LGBTQ activist, you can see the difference it has had on her mental health. Full Story

This happened to me the last time I interviewed Tom Hiddleston for The Avengers. I don’t know how I forgot. That he’s SOOOOOOOO f-cking charming and thoughtful and smart and nice. Tom was my first interview yesterday, followed immediately by Elizabeth Olsen. As Sarah just noted in her review, I Saw The Light isn’t great. Full Story

TIFF Review: I Saw The Light

I had high hopes for the Hank Williams biopic, I Saw the Light, because Hank Williams’s life is inherently cinematic—gifted musician with a meteoric rise, tragic death, and a drama-ridden life in between—and also because Tom Hiddleston plays Williams. Hiddleston is a brilliant mimic and a good actor, a combination that makes him ideal for casting in biopics. Full Story

It was pouring on Saturday night for the Legend premiere at TIFF. And the fans, they stood out there in the rain, waiting patiently for Tom Hardy. Meanwhile, I was under the red carpet awning, waiting impatiently for an interview. It didn’t happen. The film was supposed to start at 9:30pm. Full Story

TIFF Review: About Ray

I feel bad sh*tting on About Ray, but…I’m going to sh*t on it—it’s not very good. Starring Elle Fanning as transgender teen Ray and directed by Gaby Dellal (Looking), About Ray is more about everyone else talking about Ray than Ray himself. It’s a standard wacky family coming of age story, except the quirk is that Ray is transitioning from female to male, which sends his flighty mom into a panic as he needs both parents signatures before beginning the medical process of transitioning, and they haven’t seen or heard from Ray’s dad in a decade because of something his mother did. Full Story
