Emmys: Time for TV to Get Over Its Inferiority Complex

13 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Despite all the pieces heralding this as a golden age of television, the Emmys — or more accurately, those who mounted and attended them — still haven’t gotten over their infatuation with movie stars, or retired their age-old inferiority complex. And while people are to be forgiven for ogling Matthew McConaughey, the cumulative weight of all the attention he garnered from the stage went from cute to unseemly, as if nobody could believe a recent Oscar winner would deign to attend their party.

Not only does this fly in the face of history — movie stars aren’t exactly a new feature of Emmy voting — but it does a general disservice to those who have rightfully garnered praise for their television work. Besides, Bryan Cranston just won a Tony for the play “All the Way;” should people be doing cartwheels that he found time to show up?

Yet there was McConaughey on the red carpet, »

Telluride Film Festival 2014: Most Anticipated

17 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Main Street during The Telluride Film Festival

The Telluride Film Festival seemingly appears overnight against the gorgeous backdrop of rugged mountains. It lasts just four days but in fact it takes more than a month of intensive labor to transform the elementary school, high school, hockey rink, library, the park in the middle of town and a masonic temple into theaters. Now in its 41st year,up until recently this hallowed Labor Day weekend event has long been a quiet fixture on the festival circuit. As most of the festival world knows, the escalating word of mouth about the quality of Telluride’s unofficial premieres caused the Toronto International Film Festival to issue an ultimatum to those hoping to land choice spots in the fall line-up: if you choose to screen at Telluride first, your film will be pushed back on Tiff’s slate. Realistically- Toronto has little to fear from Telluride besides buzz. »

Exploring The Best, And Worst, Of On-Screen Chemistry In Film

18 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield have it. James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender have it. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have it. Will Ferrell and his Anchorman news team had it. Nicole Kidman’s most recent film was taken out of competition at Cannes partly because of not having it. Joaquin Phoenix had it with a voice and a screen. Sherlock Holmes has relied on it for years. The thing that such a diverse range of situations has in common? It is of course the great building block of human life: Chemistry.

When it comes to movies and people, we’re very familiar with chemistry. Generally used to describe a certain quality of relationship between characters, chemistry is a neat little word that we often use without a second thought. And on the surface, chemistry does look pretty simple – like, for example, when a science teacher puts a Mento in a »

Keith Urban Celebrates Duet with Miranda Lambert - without Miranda Lambert

19 hours ago | | See recent news »

"We Were Us" was the one that almost got away from Keith Urban. Instead, his duet with Miranda Lambert became a very sweet 16th No. 1 single, celebrated with writers Nicolle Galyon, Jon Nite and Jimmy Robbins at a high noon Music Row party in Nashville on Monday. Composed as a duet, the song was first intended for an unnamed female artist, according to Gaylon, who said: "We heard through the grapevine that she was kind of looking for a duet for her record, so we kind of wrote it for that, but somehow it made it into Keith's hands before »

Shlocky charms: The crazy rise and 'terrifying' return of 'Leprechaun'

25 August 2014 5:27 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

How did a low budget horror movie about a diminutive Irish monster spawn five sequels, a new reboot, and the career of Jennifer Aniston? EW tracks the deranged history of the Leprechaun franchise.

British actor Warwick Davis says he has “specific” fans—well-wishers who want to discuss just one of the several fantasy franchises in which he has appeared. “People talk about Star Wars, people talk about Harry Potter,” he explains, “and people talk about Leprechaun.”

Alert readers will have noticed that one of these franchises is not like the others. While Star Wars and Harry Potter have raked in billions of dollars, »

Two Left Feet: How “El Tango de Roxanne” Represents Everything Wrong with Baz Luhrmann

23 August 2014 8:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Moulin Rouge! is a mixed bag. It’s an idea that looks good on paper, but looks horrendous in execution. It’s a film where it should have the ability to make all the right emotional pivots, but succumbs to an ostentation that exists in its final product, making this a hallmark for director Baz Lurhmann’s career. I appreciate him, in an odd way, for injecting a very strange version of romance in his films, one that, in Moulin Rouge!, is wonderfully cynical and melancholy. In almost all of his work, his maximalism overshadows some of the most interesting aspects of the films (the sole exception being Strictly Ballroom, his first feature): the post-modern comments on capitalism in William Shakespeare’s Romeo+ Juliet, the inherent frivolity of “freedom, beauty, truth, and love” in Moulin Rouge!, and the hollow decadence of the parties in The Great Gatsby. But everything »

The Definitive ‘What the F**K?’ Movies: 40-31

23 August 2014 8:44 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As you can probably tell, this list feels more arbitrary than others. That’s not by design, but the unfortunate premise of the list leaves some room for interpretation. As we move forward, we will start seeing the films that, if you asked a lay person to give an example, would probably be a response. In other words, more people have heard of them, which, in turn, often makes them more “definitive.” Don’t worry, though – there are still some underseen and underappreciated gems the rest of the way through.

40. Werckmeister Harmonies (2000)

Directed by: Béla Tarr

It’s certainly not the swiftest film on the list, but you can’t expect much quick plot development from Béla Tarr. Wreckmeister Harmonies takes place in a tiny Hungarian town surrounded by nothing. The winter is incredibly cold, but it never snows. Yet the townspeople are excited in the middle of town as »

Lauren Bacall: 89 Years of Movies, Men and Moxie

23 August 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

No one could give "The Look" like Lauren Bacall. Plucked off the cover of Harper's Bazaar in 1943, the girl born Betty Joan Perske quickly transformed from a self-described "frightened" daughter of Jewish immigrants into a sultry screen icon. "I was so nervous," Bacall told People in 2007 of making her film debut in 1944's To Have and Have Not, where she developed her signature gaze simply by "trying to hold my head still because I was shaking." But with one memorable invitation to whistle, the then-19-year-old seduced both audiences and her leading man, Humphrey Bogart. "The looks, the wit, »

Universal & Legendary Date ‘Krampus,’ ‘Spectral'; Open Road Shifts ‘Nightcrawler’

19 August 2014 3:01 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Universal Pictures has set a 2015 date for horror comedy Krampus, the Christmas-set flick to be directed by Trick ‘R Treat‘s Michael Dougherty.

Producers are Legendary’s Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni and Alex Garcia. Krampus will hit theaters Wednesday, November 25, 2015 just in time to go up against Disney’s The Good Dinosaur, Fox’s The Martian, and WB’s Midnight Special for the Thanksgiving crowd.

Universal and Legendary have additionally set an August 12, 2016 date for the 3D thriller Spectral, about an elite Special Ops team on the trail of a phantom threat that can’t be explained.

‘Nightcrawler’ Release Pushed Back After ‘Fury’ Moves

19 August 2014 2:47 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Open Road Films will push back the release of Jake Gyllenhaal’s “Nightcrawler” by two weeks.

The crime thriller will debut on Oct. 31, as opposed to Oct. 17, when it was set to debut against the Nicholas Sparks adaptation “The Best of Me,” animated comedy “The Book of Life” and the Brad Pitt World War II film “Fury.”

Open Road didn’t give a reason for the shift, but last week Sony Pictures pushed the release of “Fury” up a month, pitting it head-to-head with “Nightcrawler.” Both films would have been pitched at similar adult audiences and that weekend was looking awfully crowded.

In its new slot, “Nightcrawler” has more breathing room. It will vie for attention with two limited releases, the Nicole Kidman thriller “Before I Go to Sleep” and the Daniel Radcliffe horror film “Horns.”

Nightcrawler,” directed by Dan Gilroy, features a gaunt looking Gyllenhaal as a driven crime »

Tues Top Ten: Hottest Hotties of 1989

19 August 2014 9:11 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Here's abstew to continue our celebration of 1989 as the 'year of the month'. Happy 25th, 1989!

As we look back at 1989 in preparation for the Smackdown, it's important not to forget what the movies have always been about: really attractive people. The Me Decade of the 80's, perhaps the greatest/craziest time in regards to fashion and hairstyles, if they taught us anything at all, it isn't that less is more. Oh, no. More is More! More shoulder pads, more eye shadow, more crunchy perms with mall bangs. So let's celebrate the 80's excess with these cinematic hotties of 1989. 

Honorable Mention: Julia Roberts "Blush and Bashful Hottie", Daniel Day-Lewis "Method Actor Hottie", Meg Ryan "I'll Have What She's Having Hottie", Kenneth Branagh "New Shakespearian Hottie", Nicole Kidman "Just An Ozzie Girl On a Boat With Billy Zane Hottie"
