Rumer Wllis Looks Superhot While Showing off some Side Boob

20 October 2014 12:47 AM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Rumer Willis lives life dangerously...close to having a wardrobe malfunction.

Demi Moore and Bruce Willis' 26-year-old daughter flaunted some major side boob during her performance at The Well in Los Angeles to unveil Kelsi Dagger's spring collection on Thursday night. The blond beauty wore a torn grey muscle tee that revealed her entire sides and came extremely close to accidently giving the audience a nip slip.

Seriously, a strong gust of wind and it'd be over. But luckily, it doesn't look like that happened.

Her casual yet sexy look was completed with a pair of black leather skinny pants and black heeled clogs.

Parents & Frequent Moviegoers Are Desensitized To Violence, Sex In Film; Likely So Is MPAA Ratings Board: Study

20 October 2014 12:01 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

After surveying 1,000 parents exposed to multiple clips of on-screen sex and violence in movies, a study found that parents become increasingly desensitized to acts of sex and violence with repeated viewing which appears to lead to an increasing acceptance to both. The result is that these parents are less likely to shield their kids from movies that contain sex and violence. In addition, the authors note that people who rate movies for the MPAA (themselves parents) could also be subject to the same desensitization “and thus more likely to be lenient when it comes to evaluating the appropriateness of such content for children.” Those behind the study said this effect could help to explain the “ratings creep” that has allowed more violence into films aimed at our youth.

The MPAA has long acknowledged that its standards have shifted over time but has traditionally attributed this to the changing standards of parents. »

The Past, Present, and Future of Real-Time Films Part Four

The Digital Era: Real-time Films From 2000 To Today

40 years before, in 1960, lighter cameras enabled a cinéma vérité-flavored revolution in street realism. By 2000, new digital cameras suggested a whole new set of promises, including telling stories that would have been unimaginable within minimum budgets for features even ten years before. In 2000, film purists warned that digital still didn’t look as good as celluloid, but that didn’t stop at least three innovative filmmakers from boldly going where no filmmaker had gone before. Mike Figgis’ Timecode (2000) was the first star-supported (Salma Hayek, Stellan Skarsgard, Holly Hunter, among many others) single-shot project since Rope, underlining that earlier film’s timelessness. If Run Lola Run could do one story three times, then Timecode would do three or four stories one time: the movie is four separate ninety-minute shots shown all at the same time, each in one quadrant of the screen. Where do you look? »

Robert Rodriguez Sues Over Unpaid $7.7 Million for ‘Sin City 2,’ ‘Machete Kills’

17 October 2014 6:49 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez has sued the financers of “Sin City 2″ and “Machete Kills,” alleging non-payment of $7.7 million.

The suit was filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court by Rodriguez and his affiliate companies against Sergei Bespalov, Marina Bespalov, Maddartico, Vrelonovama, Aldamisa Entertainment and SC2 Productions.

It alleged breach of contract and fraud. The suit seeks a jury trial and unspecified damages.

“In order to induce Plaintiffs to enter into agreements with various of the Defendants relating to the Pictures, Defendants, including, specifically, Sergei Bespalov, falsely assured and represented to Plaintiffs that Defendants had more than sufficient financial resources and cash flow – not only from and related to the Pictures, but also from other projects – to honor all of their financial obligations to Plaintiffs.”

The suit alleged that when the money was not paid as promised, Rodriguez paid from his own funds to “Machete Kills” screenwriter Kyle Ward.

Plaintiffs include Fifth Brain Inc. »

40 Great Horror Films for the Halloween Season Part 2

17 October 2014 6:17 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Movies 30-21

30. The Sixth Sense (1999) directed by M. Night Shyamalan

Before he spiraled into a critical nose-dive from which he’s yet to recover, M. Night Shyamalan was heralded as the next great American filmmaker. (No, seriously.) Before his gimmickry become obvious–all the twist endings, the important details withheld, trickery in lieu of genuine cleverness–Shyamalan crafted a genuine masterpiece that remains as potent as ever, regardless of the spoiling of its sneaky surprises. Bruce Willis has never approached the grace and subtlety of his performance here; his empathetic, sorrowful turn as a child psychologist searching for redemption deserved an Oscar nod. Maybe he woulda gotten one had this movie not come out in the insanely good movie year of our lord 1999. Willis is matched every step of the way by Haley Joel Osment, giving one of the great childhood performances, and lending credence to lines that could have »

From Big and Uncle Buck to Shutter Island and Rush Hour, here are 23 films that are getting the television treatment...

News Nuggets: What makes 'Pulp Fiction' the coolest film of the 1990s?

15 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Director and writer Quentin Tarantino burst into the mainstream 20 years ago this week with the debut of "Pulp Fiction." Matthew Chernov says that it was "like a shot of adrenaline to the heart" that "changed the movie landscape" forever. He adds that movies from that timeframe like "Dances with Wolves" and "A Few Good Men" were "content to play it safe." Calling it the "coolest" film of the 1990s, he praises the soundtrack, razor-sharp dialogue (from an Oscar-winning screenplay by Tarantino and Roger Avary), the cinematography, and stars John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis, and Uma Thurman. While nominated for the Best Picture of 1994, it lost that Oscar race to "Forrest Gump."

First Reaction: Syfy’s 12 Monkeys [Nycc 2014]

14 October 2014 9:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After an exhausting day spent wandering the New York Comic Con floor last Friday, Syfy offered me sanctuary in the form of comfy theater chairs and a sneak preview of their upcoming television reboot, 12 Monkeys. Based off Terry Gilliam’s popular film (Twelve Monkeys), showrunners Travis Fickett and Terry Matalas are looking to bring a hard science fiction bite to Syfy’s regularly scheduled programming, repurposing a famous genre brand in the process. While I can’t unleash a full review due to the show’s January 16th series debut, I am allowed to give you my initial thoughts on the entire pilot episode without spoiling any of the super-juicy details.

I’m not exactly sure if Gilliam is thrilled about the show’s existence, but the pilot sufficiently establishes a world that hits upon the 1995 classic while tweaking a few major points for a reinvigorated experience. Motives are established, »

‘Pulp Fiction’ at 20: Why It’s the Coolest Film of the ’90s

14 October 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Like a shot of adrenaline to the heart, “Pulp Fiction” changed the movie landscape when it opened on Oct. 14, 1994. Quentin Tarantino’s ode to crime and pop-culture was a bold new cinematic vision in a decade that badly needed one. Before “Pulp Fiction,” prestige films like “Dances with Wolves” and “A Few Good Men” seemed content to play it safe, while blockbusters like “Jurassic Park” and “The Fugitive” focused squarely on the mainstream. Overnight, the term ‘Tarantinoesque’ became shorthand for audaciously stylized ultra-violence and genre-bending thrills. On its 20th anniversary, here’s why “Pulp Fiction” remains the coolest movie of the ’90s.

The Soundtrack: From the rumbling reverb of Dick Dale’s surf-rock rendition of “Misirlou” to the soulful crooning of Dusty Springfield’s “Son of a Preacher Man” and the strip club sexiness of Kool & the Gang’s “Jungle Boogie,” the “Pulp Fiction” soundtrack effortlessly mixes musical styles the way the film blends genres. »

The 20 Best 'Pulp Fiction' Quotes Ever, Ranked

14 October 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The "King Kong of crime movies" is 20 years old today.

Rolling Stone gave "Pulp Fiction" that moniker upon its release, and it's hard to argue that the name doesn't still ring true two decades later. The Quentin Tarantino classic roared out of the gates after winning the Palme d'Or at Cannes, intertwining tales of violence and redemption in 1990s Los Angeles, much to the delight of the world.

And it seems the world has not forgotten.

"Pulp Fiction" is quoted endlessly even today -- yet it still (somehow) manages to remain fresh. The self-righteousness of Samuel L. Jackson's Jules Winnfield announcing itself at every turn, the quiet calm of Uma Thurman's Mia before the storm, or the deadpan humor of Bruce Willis's Butch.

To honor the 20th anniversary of "Pulp Fiction" and its collection of unforgettable characters and dialogue, here are the 20 best quotes from the crime classic. »

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s Pearl Street shingle and CBS Television Studios have partnered with Syfy to develop the TV series “Incorporated,” a futuristic espionage thriller.

Ted Humphrey (“The Good Wife”) will serve as executive producer/showrunner, with Damon, Affleck and Jennifer Todd also executive producing.

The Gimp Unleashed: Pulp Fiction’s Creepy Bondage Slave Tells All

10 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

“Hello. This is the Gimp. I hear you’ve been looking for me?” In one of the strangest moments in Pulp Fiction, the two pawnshop rapists who have kidnapped boxer Butch Coolidge (played by Bruce Willis) and crime-lord Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames) task a leather-clad bondage slave — “well, bring out the Gimp ...” — with watching over Butch as they set about to violate Marsellus in a separate area of their basement dungeon that is also referred to, cryptically, as “Russell’s old room.” The Gimp didn’t make for much of a security guard, but the character certainly made an impression on Pulp Fiction fans, in part because of all the mystery surrounding him. Who is this masked man? Why is he helping these sadists? What on Earth was this guy thinking?To get answers to these and other burning Gimp-related questions, we looked around for the actor who played him »
