Vanity Fair 2014 "The Hollywood Issue" (Part 1)

4 February 2014 7:50 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Ah, our favorite magazine tradition. Vanity Fair's 20th Annual Hollywood Issue is upon us and the dozen stars selected they've selected are very carefully placed (they've read their own reviews). Instead of an all white lineup with a person of color shoved onto the back fold, this is an extremely careful, as if everything has been weighed on a scale: 12 actors, exactly equally split between both men and women, and skin color.

Of course both of those 50/50 visual situations are grossly unreflective of the actual business of Hollywood movies but we're not here to complain but to praise, it's fun to see the cover shaken up ever so slightly. If we were here to complain we'd probably say something about the lack of Asian actors (they never get their due here in America) but no one has ever asked The Film Experience to guest art-direct a cover.

Joan Allen Joining The Killing

16 January 2014 11:15 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Joan Allen has joined the cast of The Killing for the show's upcoming fourth Netflix-only season, according to TV Guide. She'll be on a "major multi-episode arc" as the stern headmaster at an all-boys military school that's connected to the central murder mystery of the season; her character reportedly "projects a maternal instinct to the troubled young men in her charge," but was also dishonorably discharged from the military. Has Peter Sarsgaard taught us nothing? Don't join the cast of The Killing if you can possibly avoid it. »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2005

15 January 2014 7:12 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 16 Jan 2014 - 06:20

Another 25 unsung greats come under the spotlight, as we provide our pick of the underappreciated films of 2005...

It's underappreciated films time again, and this week, we delve deep into the year 2005 - a collection of months dominated by the likes of Star Wars: Episode III, another Harry Potter, Steven Spielberg's War Of The Worlds, Peter Jackson's King Kong, and CG family movie Madagascar.

It was also the year Pierce Brosnan formally bowed out of his role as James Bond, and Martin Scorsese's The Aviator was hyped to win the director his first Oscar, but didn't. Still, the contents of this list received nothing like the acclaim of The Aviator, nor the financial pickings of a Star Wars or Harry Potter. As ever, we've focused on 25 films which we think deserve a bit more love.

So with apologies to »
