30. Sense and Sensibility

Directed by: Ang Lee

Ang Lee has gone in about eight different directions in terms of genre. His resume includes “The Ice Storm,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” Hulk,” “Brokeback Mountain,” “Life of Pi,” and this delightful Jane Austen adaptation, starring Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant, Alan Rickman, and young Kate Winslet. “Sense and Sensibility” took home the Oscar for Adapted Screenplay for the story of the Dashwood family, a mother widowed and left in difficult circumstances after her husband has left his fortune to his first wife, instead of his current one. So Mrs. Dashwood (Gemma Jones) and her daughters Fanny, Marianne, and Elinor (Harriet Walter, Winslet, Thompson) have to find a way to survive in a world ruled by men and the rules that seem to create obstacle after obstacle for them. Unfortunately, given the era, they are viewed as “unmarryable,” since they have no fortune and no prospects. »

A Brief History of Accurate Hacking Scenes in Movies, From ‘The Conversation’ to ‘Blackhat’

27 January 2015 9:20 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Bad hacking is everywhere in movies, but there are a handful of films that actually get it right. The problem is that the good stuff isn’t very interesting to look at. Real hackers don’t use virtual reality setups, and they don’t act like Hugh Jackman in Swordfish. Val Kilmer’s line in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is […]

26 January 2015 5:03 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

In a recent interview, Amy Adams talked about reprising her role as Lois Lane in Batman v Superman and Ben Affleck’s portrayal of Batman. According to Adams, Affleck is giving “his own take” to the popular character that has been previously portrayed by Christian Bale, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and George Clooney. Read Adam’s comments below:

“He is going to be his own unique thing. He’s got a wonderful quality and a great body of work. I was only in one scene with him, I think I’m allowed to say that. So I didn’t get to see much, but what I saw was fantastic.”

The film wrapped up in December with a 2016 release date. In addition to Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Canvill is reprising his role as Superman and they are joined by Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa as Aquaman. Stay tuned for additional details. »

Val Kilmer Brings Lookalike Son Jack to Clippers Game

Like father, like son! Val Kilmer and his lookalike son Jack Kilmer cheered on the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night as the team took on the Cleveland Cavaliers at Staples Center. Sporting the same shoulder-length blonde 'do, the 19-year-old is the spitting image of his famous father!Jack recently was named one of the faces of Saint Laurent, showing off his modeling skills in some smoldering print ads for the fashion house and walking in the brand's spring 2015 runway in September. He's also following in his dad's acting footsteps -- you might recognize this young hunk from his role as a troubled teen in "Palo Alto."Jack is loving life as a working actor now, but he didn't always want to be on the big screen. "I actually didn’t always want to be an actor," he told Huffington Post last year. "It’s funny, people asked me as a kid all the time, »

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. »

Ranked: How superhero stars fared after giving up the cape

10 January 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Donning the cape and tights to play a big screen superhero was often seen as career suicide for actors. This idea is mined to brilliant effect in Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman, with a former comic book star looking to relaunch his career with an ambitious Broadway play.

Adding extra spice to Birdman is the casting of Michael Keaton, himself a former Batman whose post-tights career has been somewhat hit and miss. This film, however, is a stunning reminder of just how good an actor Keaton is and proof that careers don't end when on-screen superpowers fade away.

Digital Spy takes a look at 20 ex-superhero stars to see how they fared after leaving an iconic comic book role behind.

The suave American actor looked set for big things in the '90s thanks to impressive roles in Dead Calm and Tombstone, but his time in the purple Phantom »

Birdman review – Michael Keaton goes a long way to restoring his reputation

4 January 2015 1:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The former Batman actor is ideally cast as a faded star once famed for his superhero roles

Sometimes a film’s success very much depends on having the right actor in the lead, especially if the film is essentially about that actor. You can’t imagine Being John Malkovich working if Spike Jonze hadn’t persuaded Mr M to take the bait; yes, there are other elegantly eccentric leading men, but Being Jeremy Irons? Being Julian Sands? Hardly the same. Similarly, backstage comedy Birdman – about a faded Hollywood actor once famous for a superhero role – touches a nerve partly because it stars Michael Keaton, whose career declined steadily after Batman Returns (1992). Of course, director Alejandro González Iñárritu might have considered Keaton’s successor in the Batcape, Val Kilmer, but you can’t imagine him being nearly as good; as for the next incumbent of Wayne Manor, George Clooney, playing a shop-soiled also-ran, »
