This weekend schlock-master Paul Ws Anderson (Resident Evil, Death Race) is bringing us his latest over the top action extravaganza, a story about adventure and romance set against the backdrop of maybe the most famous volcanic eruption in history, Pompeii. If you watch the trailer, it seems like the movie’s going to be pretty bad, but bad in that way that you’re going to end up watching and enjoying it regardless. Or maybe that’s just my crushes on Emily Browning and Kit Harington talking. Pompeii won’t be the first time a couple of attractive young kids have fallen in love against the backdrop of a volcano decimating an entire group of people, however. Back in 1990, writer/director John Patrick Shanley took a couple of actors who hardcore movie fans may have heard of, Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, and used their one-of-a-kind chemistry to tell a unique tale that was part romance, part »

Technophilia will only get you so far, Jonze's near-future parable suggests, as it engineers a blind date between a lonely man and a sentient operating system with no concept of privacy settings – and finds both partners wanting. More successful is the marriage of sci-fi and romantic drama: the focus is more on the heart than the hardware in this soulful, often sorrowful movie.
The Lego Movie (U)
Using pop-culture humour and star voices to overcome blatant product placement, this canny, rapid-fire comedy adventure is like a Matrix parody rendered in CGI plastic bricks.

The 1993 smash Sleepless In Seattle is this week's Valentine's Day re-release on the big screen, and it's a movie to which director and co-writer Nora Ephron brought her terrific flair, wit and nous, although she propagates the terrifying fallacy that a widower makes a wonderful romantic catch. The movie references the 50s weepie classic An Affair to Remember, in which wheelchair-user Deborah Kerr famously can't keep her romantic appointment atop the Empire State Building with Cary Grant. Ephron cleverly reverses this situation and gives the man the heart-wrenching disability – bereavement.
Tom Hanks is Sam, the architect who has moved to Seattle after the death of his wife; his cute eight-year-old son Jonah calls a radio talk show about his depressed and insomniac dad and chivvies him into talking about »

It’s not wildly cool to be unabashedly in love with love in 2014. As adults, our love stories have evolved to become these wieldy, introspective, self-deprecating things – multi-dimensional and piquantly marinaded in irony and angst. For all their myriad charms, each new romance that trips across the silver screen seems shadowed - Pan-like – by the ingenious back stories stitched to its toes. Yet two Valentine’s Day releases (something old and something brand new) will allow us to fall foolishly in love with love again : Spike Jonze’s beguiling film Her and Nora Ephron’s Sleepless in Seattle.
Sam Baldwin (Tom Hanks) and Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix) have both been sucker-punched by sadness – quite blindsided by their respective bereavement and marital breakdown – they are men set adrift inside their own lives. And despite the contrast of wildly different wardrobes – from Phoenix’s hipster chic to Hank’s irrefutably ’90s »

Valentine's Day is today, and if you're anything like me, you want to watch a good romantic comedy to get into the mood. Sadly, the last few years ( . . . decades?) have been a bleak time for romantic comedies. I don't know what happened to girls just standing in front of boys asking them to love them or why Tom Hanks isn't shutting down Meg Ryan's shop anymore; I just know that this genre isn't as good as it used to be. To help matters, I've picked out 11 great romantic comedies that you can stream on Netflix - 11 movies that are either old favorites, gems you may have never seen, or semi-recent movies you missed for whatever reason.

Valentine's Day is upon us, and if you have young kids at home and/or forgot to secure a sitter, you're probably going to have to celebrate at home. Perhaps you've been together a while and don't get caught up in the dinner and gifts revelry any more (if ever!). We hear you, and we've got some great recommendations for a lovely romantic movie night after the kids have gone to bed.
For couples who love old-school rom-coms: "You've Got Mail"

There was something magical about Meg Ryan in her Hollywood heyday, and she was once quite deservedly the queen of romantic comedies. Although we adore "When Harry Met Sally" and "Sleepless in Seattle," this remake of "The Shop Around the Corner" combines our love of New York-set romances, all things Tom Hanks, and the allure of bookstores.

Twenty-five years ago, When Harry Met Sally revolutionized the romantic comedy. Sure, this film genre had been around since the earliest days of cinema, and had once been the domain of giants like Billy Wilder and Ernst Lubitsch and Stanley Donen. But Rob Reiner and Nora Ephron’s 1989 hit, with its slick, highly quotable back-and-forth between Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan, as well as its oddly self-reflective quality, felt like something strange and new — the Star Wars of romantic comedies. It wasn’t just a romantic comedy, it was a rom-com. We’ve been living in its wake ever since, and Valentine's Day seemed like a good time to look at the 25 intervening years and pick our favorites.A couple of caveats: We focused only on American and British rom-coms. In part, this was because there was no way to do justice to all the great films coming out of other non-English-speaking countries. »

Los Angeles, Feb 11: Actress Meg Ryan says that she has wanted to become a journalist since she was a teenager.
The 52-year-old admitted that she only started acting to earn some cash, reports contactmusic.com.
"My main aim, at 18, was to become a journalist. I only started acting - in commercials - to pay my way through college in New York," Bang Showbiz quoted Ryan as saying.

Well, we’ve finally reached the summit: the 10 most definitive romantic comedies of all time. Unlike the other sections of this list, there is not a movie here that approaches “bad.” As always, some are better than others, despite the order. But one thing is for sure: if you plan to have a rom-com binge-a-thon soon, this is where you start, no questions asked. In fact, after reading this, you should go do that and report back.

10. Some Like It Hot (1959)
What’s funnier than men dressing in drag? Depends on who you ask. It’s Billy Wilder again with a fictional story of two musicians – Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) – who witness the St. Valentine’s Day massacre in Chicago and leave town. But, since the mob has ties everywhere, they need to disguise themselves as best they can: as women in an »

Dallas Buyers Club (15)
What McConaughey loses in body mass he gains in compassion in this drawn-from-real-life drama, which cleverly disguises its awards-friendliness beneath thespian commitment and non-issue-movie storytelling. Diagnosed with Aids in 1980s Texas, McConaughey's rodeo-loving electrician takes matters into his own hands and devises his own grey-market treatment programme for the ravaged gay community (in partnership with Leto's lovable transgender cohort, Rayon). The authorities don't approve; the Academy probably will.
The Invisible Woman (12A)
Working to Claire Tomalin's biography, Fiennes gives us a tale of two Dickenses: the charismatic literary celebrity and the self-absorbed love rat. But the passion of his secret affair with Jones's teenage actor is smothered by repression, »

Nicolas Cage is in talks to star in the crime thriller “Men with No Fear,” with The Exchange coming on board to finance and sell worldwide territories at the European Film Market.
“Men with No Fear” centers on Marty “The Mule” who’s been recently released from prison after being set up by his former boss, a smalltime crook who has gone on to become a ruthless drug kingpin — and also raised Marty’s son. Marty comes up with a plan to gather a gang of criminals to steal the kingpin’s money and win back the heart of the son who hates him.
The project could re-unite Cage and Cabezas, who teamed on indie action-thriller “Tokarev,” which was shot last year. In that project, »

So, we’ve arrived at the top 20, slowly creeping toward those films that are exactly what a romantic comedy should be. We’ve seen films that fall into the category, but lean more toward other genres. We’ve seen romantic films that are funny enough to be comedies, but don’t entirely represent the spirit of the rom-com, despite being brilliant films. Now, we form a clearer picture of what a romantic comedy is. Not all of the films in this section are necessarily “good,” but they’re all iconic, definitive romantic comedies (hence their inclusion). Memorability does not necessarily come partnered with quality. It means right place, right time.

20. Sleepless in Seattle (1993)

Few actresses are the target of as many comeback rumors as Meg Ryan. After 2003's In the Cut, the Jane Campion thriller she had hoped would be her reinvention, Ryan disappeared into quickly forgotten indies and the occasional TV guest spot. She finally reappeared last year, announcing she'd headline an NBC comedy in a role that winks at the last ten years of her resume -- as a middle-aged woman in a creative field who was once at the top of her game, but now must rebuild her career after a long absence. Ryan's proving she's doing her comeback her own way. She will make her directorial debut with Ithaca, a film adaptation of William Saroyan's coming-of-age novel The Human Comedy, and reunite with her former rom-com dream-team partner Tom Hanks, who will produce. The film will see some other familiar faces in stars Sam Shepard and Melanie Griffith, »

Siri, meet Scarlett.
Hollywood has always shown the way to the future. It’s a little known fact that, for decades, the bigscreen inspired many forward-looking technologies long before their day. (The reverse has also been true: Steven Spielberg asked his way around Silicon Valley to find out where technology was likely to be in 50 years prior to filming “Minority Report.”)
My line of business was no exception to this trend. Siri was seriously influenced by Stanley Kubrick’s Hal 9000 character in “2001: A Space Odyssey” as well as the talking computers from “Star Trek” and Kitt from “Knight Rider.” I’ll bet David Hasselhoff is using Siri right now.
Of course it’s easier to create a character straight from the imagination than it is to piece together state of the art technologies. I wondered, watching Spike Jonze’s new movie “Her,” is that possible to build right now? »

Los Angeles, Jan 31: Actress Meg Ryan is set to make her directorial debut with "Ithaca".
"Ithaca' is a deceptively simple story, by turns stark and lyrical. It's sometimes shockingly unsentimental and yet, by some little miracle, never cynical. I am delighted to no end to bring a tale of such vibrancy and heart to the screen," Bang Showbiz quoted her as saying.
Ryan will also act in the film, which is about a telegram delivery boy in America during World War II who sends. »

Source: Getty They had to create four versions of Jennifer Lawrence's American Hustle dress because she would get Doritos all over them. Classic. Hugh Grant is a father for the third time. It is his third love child with a second mother, with his newest son secretly born in September 2013. Austin Mahone is not dating Selena Gomez, but he thinks she's "really pretty." Stop what you're doing and read the Full House reunion Reddit Ama, in which Bob Saget, John Stamos, and Dave Coulier's bromance is alive and well. To sum it up, John said: "We are exactly like our characters. It's a problem." Watch Stevie Nicks on American Horror Story: Coven's finale last night and find out who the new Supreme is. Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks will reunite in her directorial debut and hopefully re-create scenes from You've Got Mail in behind-the-scenes videos, too. The »
