Sundance Film Review: ‘Entertainment’

20 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Not everyone found much to laugh about in director Rick Alverson’s 2012 Sundance competition entry “The Comedy,” an extravagantly rude, confrontational and surprisingly poignant study of a dissolute New York slacker waiting to inherit his dying father’s fortune. And not everyone will be entertained by Alverson’s new “Entertainment,” an even darker, weirder odyssey through a soulless American nowhere, with perhaps the world’s most abrasively unfunny insult comic as our guide. But take it or leave it, Alverson’s fourth feature is singular stuff, and it reconfirms the director as one of the truly bold voices in the all-too-homogenous U.S. indie film scene. General audiences will keep a safe distance, but “Entertainment” should have no trouble finding a fervent cult to call its own.

Entertainment” was conceived as a starring vehicle for the astonishing Gregg Turkington — and, more precisely, for Turkington’s longtime alter ego, Neil Hamburger, »

Movie Review – Mortdecai (2015)

24 January 2015 2:33 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Mortdecai, 2015.

Directed by David Koepp.

Starring Johnny Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Paul Bettany, Jeff Goldblum and Olivia Munn.

Synopsis:

Juggling angry Russians, the British Mi5, and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai races to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain a code that leads to lost Nazi gold.

Mortdecai is an enigma; it is an R-rated attempt at comedy but the slapstick humor plays out like the antics of a children’s movie. This tonal dissonance makes it impossible to identify just who the audience for the movie is. At the end of the day though it probably doesn’t matter, because whether your 7, 27, or 70 you probably aren’t going to find Mortdecai funny.

Johnny Depp plays the titular character, an art smuggler in deep debt. He also imbues this character with what is quite possibly one of the most annoying voices »

Jim Carrey's The Mask — Rare Bizarre Promotional Art

21 January 2015 11:37 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I have a very vivid memory of watching Jim Carrey's The Mask at the Vista Theaters in Los Feliz in 1994. At the time, Carrey was reaching the peak of his fame, having been on In Living Color and starred in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. My two younger brothers and I were very excited for the movie and liked it so much that we bought The Mask as soon as it was released on VHS. The movie is so over the top and comical that it's kind of timeless in its tastelessness.

JimCarreyOnline.com uncovered some early promotional art that tips from zany into creepy. It's pretty clear he's not wearing makeup so the green tinted face morphs just look bizarre and not very cartoonish.

Maddie Ziegler Reveals What It Was Really Like to Shoot "Elastic Heart" With Shia Labeouf

20 January 2015 2:15 PM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Sia's "Elastic Heart" music video, featuring a half-naked Shia Labeouf and "Dance Moms" alum Maddie Ziegler, is still creating controversy. But now, we're finding out what it was really like to shoot the controversial scenes. In the video, the two have a dance battle inside a giant cage. A dirt-covered, boxer-brief wearing Labeouf puts his contemporary moves on display, as 12-year-old Ziegler dances circles around him.Sia Defends "Elastic Heart" Music Video -- Says She Expected "Pedophilia" Backlash   In a new interview with Et, Maddie revealed some secrets from the set. "I'm supposed to be portraying a werewolf and pretty much Shia and I have been just living in the cage for a year and I'm the strong one and I'm trying to pretty much kill him," she explained. While the seasoned dancer is used to playing different characters on the stage, the aggressive moves were hard for her to master. »

'Saturday Night Live' best host poll: Kevin Hart leads with his strengths

19 January 2015 9:00 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

I'm no fan of those Saturday Night Live opening monologues where the guest host goes out of his or her way to show us how multitalented they are. Typically, that means a song and/or dance from an actor best known for action movies. I prefer what Kevin Hart did: Give us an uproarious eight-minutes of stand-up about the wild critters skulking about his property, including one extremely gangster raccoon. Hart, hosting for the second time in three seasons, led with what he does best, and though the rest of his sketches may have been uneven, he delivered more real »

10 Overlooked Positives Of Batman Forever

18 January 2015 8:12 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Joel Schumacher is not a popular man among Batman fans. His Batman And Robin has gone down in history as one of the worst comic book movies ever made (or the worst, depending on who you ask) – his rubber nipple-suited Batman and glittery Mr. Freeze forever punning the film into the history books. It all turned out fine in the end, with Christopher Nolan and a very gruff Dark Knight subsequently rescuing his career with two of the greatest Batman movies of all time (plus the other one), but that does not make Batman And Robin any less terrible.

Often mentioned in the same breath as Batman And Robin is the film’s immediate predecessor, Schumacher’s Batman Forever. With director Tim Burton and star Michael Keaton nowhere to be seen, Schumacher had the unenviable job of following up one of the most iconic superhero films of all time. »

Watch Sia Bring Her Music Videos to Life With Electrifying 'SNL' Performance

18 January 2015 6:05 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The Saturday Night Live stage isn't always the friendliest confines for pop singers occupying the musical guest spot. The dancing, the outfits and even the song choices often seem out of place given the intimate, comedy club feel of the studio venue, but on SNL's Kevin Hart-hosted episode, Sia managed to deliver an electrifying performance without even moving an inch, sharing a pair of hits off her 1000 Forms of Fear.

First up was Sia's latest single, "Elastic Heart." Standing resolutely with her face obscured by a black »

25 surprising side businesses from Hollywood stars

15 January 2015 8:54 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paul Newman’s salad dressing enterprise is common knowledge, but did you know about these 25 businesses run by Hollywood stars?

What do big-time movie stars get up to in their spare time? While their fictional counterparts might enjoy chopping wood or getting hosed down by friendly females (more on that here), actors themselves have a tendency towards wacky entrepreneurial ideas and hefty industrial investments.

Looking at our findings from some rigorous research (read: Googling), it seems that you can divide famous actors into a handful of groups – those who are trying to do something good for the world, those who are trying to break into internet megabucks and those who like opening restaurants.

Without further chit-chat, here’s a breakdown of which stars are behind which brands which you may or may not know and love…

Early Designs For Jim Carrey's The Mask Are Kind Of Creepy

14 January 2015 12:01 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

They call me Cuban Pete. I'm the king of the rhumba beat. When I play the maracas I go chick-chicky-boom, chick-chicky boom. Sorry, every time I get to go back to one of my favorite films from my childhood, The Mask, I have to sing those sweet "Cuban Pete" lyrics. If you're a fan of the film as well, you are going to love these rough, early designs for Jim Carrey's The Mask that were featured in an old presskit New Line Cinemas issued to promote their film before it was released. Some of these early designs come across as quite sinister and that would've played as well as the finished look, which was very kid-friendly. The film itself is basically a live-action cartoon. Funny enough, the film was based on the comic book of the same name from Dark Horse Comics and it is actually quite dark compared »

Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling & Brad Pitt Set to Lead 'The Big Short'

13 January 2015 1:03 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though director Adam McKAay was able to assemble surprising A-list cameos from the likes of Harrison Ford, Jim Carrey and even Will Smith for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, the cast of his first big screen drama is even more impressive. Variety reports Christian Bale, Brad Pitt and Ryan Gosling will all star in The Big Short, an adaptation of a non-fiction book from Moneyball author Michael Lewis about the most recent collapse of the financial industry, focusing on unregulated bond and real estate derivative markets and the traders behind them. McKay was reported to write and direct the project late last March. Here's the official synopsis of the book: "The real story of the crash began in bizarre feeder markets where the sun doesn't shine and the SEC doesn't dare, or bother, to tread: the bond and real estate derivative markets where geeks invent impenetrable securities to profit from »

Feature: Top 25 Interviews of 2014, By Patrick McDonald

12 January 2015 12:48 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – One of the specialities of HollywoodChicago.com is the film and personality interview. The majority of these chats came through me, Patrick McDonald, and I couldn’t narrow it down to a top 10 or even a top 20. For 2014, there were 25 top interviews, and it is a diverse range of voices.

It is a privilege to get the opportunity to participate in the promotional tours, awards ceremonies, film festivals, book appearances, phoners and other lucky happenstances that feature the notable among us. To whittle down the list, I mostly thought about what was said in these interviews, whether inspirational or provocative – plus the status of the participants, whether they are up-and-coming or established.

The interview highlights are broken down by “Background and Behind-the-Scenes” and the “Memorable Quote” associated with each subject, and are often accompanied with exclusive photography by Joe Arce of HollywoodChicago.com. Four notables who just missed the »

This is the music video that had everyone talking on Wednesday.Starring a half-naked Shia Labeouf and 12-year-old "Dance Moms" alum Maddie Ziegler, Sia's clip for "Elastic Heart" is definitely emotionally charged -- but left some people screaming "Inappropriate!"In the video, the two have a dance battle inside a giant cage. A dirt-covered, boxer-brief wearing Labeouf puts his insanely ripped physique and contemporary moves on display, as Ziegler dances circles around him.Video: Jim Carrey Has Dance-Off to Sia's "Chandelier"The commenters in our own original post yesterday were split down the middle about the artistic video."Shia Labeouf has some sort of mental illness. Mattie Zeigler's [sic] parents also have some sort of mental illness, sexualizing their 12 year old this way," wrote one. "This isn't a video about sex, it is a video about humans and struggle," posted another. "Didn't see a sexual connection at all.""Just feel the ick slithering from the video. »

The movie formerly known as David O. Russell’s 'Nailed' has a trailer

6 January 2015 6:10 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Back in November, we reported that David O. Russell’s ill-fated, romantic satire "Nailed" would actually see the light of day, thanks to producers determined to reshoot, finish and release the picture in whatever marketable form they could. Now dubbed "Accidental Love," the first trailer for the film plays like a goofy rom-com of the McConaughey-Hudson era, albeit with hints of Russell’s biting perspective. What was dead is now reborn… as something far more generic. Is this how Nicole Kidman felt in "Birth"? "Accidental Love" follows Alice (Jessica Biel), the recent victim of a nailgun shot to the head, as she crusades to Washington D.C. in defense of all those afflicted by "weird conditions they can’t afford to fix." Ditched by her fiancée (James Marsden), Alice hooks up with an eager, young politician (Jake Gyllenhaal) and antics ensue.   Though he’s turned his attention to more traditional drama fare, »
