The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty DVD Review

18 April 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Ben Stiller

Starring: Ben Stiller, Kristen Wiig, Sean Penn, Kathryn Hahn, Shirley MacLaine, Adrian Matinez, Patton Oswalt

Running Time: 114 minutes

Certificate: PG

Ben Stiller’s latest directorial outing starts magnificently. A simple scene involving lead character Walter Mitty (Stiller) checking his eHormony account is portrayed in silence but captures all the miniscule subtleties you may not expect from the director of Tropic Thunder and Zoolander. It’s an enchanting moment which captures the comedy and bittersweet heart warming moments of the entire film in just a few minutes of footage. This scene also demonstrates the spectacular cinematography on display courtesy of Stuart Dryburgh. It may not be striking in comparison to the most meticulously crafted arthouse efforts, but if one is expecting the traditional broad comedy antics of Stiller and Wiig, you can’t help but be surprised.

If it sounds as though there’s a ‘but’ coming on, »

Empire Wither Cate Blanchett post Blue Jasmine. After Carol it looks like The Dig is it, an archeological period piece true story based on the novel by John Preston. Directed by Oscar-winning Susanne Bier (Brothers). Yay!

Pat Robertson admits god almighty is a hater, Mississippi teaches students homosexuality is illegal, Kate McKinnon can’t save Intramural from stereotypes

Shirley MacLaine is set to guest star on Glee as a wealthy New York socialite who is determined to make Blaine a star, which will no doubt cause grief in all his interpersonal relationships.

San Marino, a tiny nation surrounded by Italy, is considering recognizing marriages performed abroad. Having just decriminalized homosexuality in 2004, they’re making fast progress.

The University of Kentucky’s medical center sent out a survey to students with great questions like “If it were possible, I would choose to be straight” and “Male homosexuality is a perversion.” The university says the survey, which wasn’t confidential “Was to understand better the utilization of university health services on the part Lgbt students.”

'Glee': Shirley MacLaine to guest

8 April 2014 2:43 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Shirley MacLaine is headed to Ryan Murphy-ville — but, sadly, it’s not American Horror Story.

Instead, the Oscar-winner (who was most recently seen on television strutting around Downton Abbey) will have a multi-episode arc on Glee, EW has confirmed. TVLine, which first reported the news, says she’ll portray a New York socialite intent on turning Blaine (Darren Criss) into a superstar. (I mean, someone has to go up against Rachel for Broadway supremacy…)

Her first episode is slated to air later this month. Glee recently saw its episode order this season cut from 22 to 20, but the show will return for a final, »

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty Blu-Ray Combo Pack Giveaway

8 April 2014 11:10 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is just about to hit in stores, and I’ve got a copy of the Blu-Ray Combo Pack for you. The Ben Stiller vehicle didn’t have quite as much impact on theaters as I expected, but I’m hoping it gets a new lease on life with the home release.

That might be a little surprising (catch our podcast review, and my Answers.com review) considering that I haven’t exactly championed the film whole-heartedly, but I wasn’t exactly opposed to it either. It’s a fun ride, that had a few rough spots, and didn’t exactly play out the way I’d have liked. In the end, I think it’s a lot better than most are probably giving it credit for, and it has a few scenes that really shouldn’t be missed.

Sweet Charity

2 April 2014 3:38 AM, PDT | Sky Movies | See recent Sky Movies news »

Shirley MacLaine is the tart with the heart of gold who falls in love with a naive young man (John McMartin) who doesn't know about her 'profession' in this lively adaptation of the successful stage musical. A huge flop when it was released, the years have been kind to Sweet Charity so consider it a worthy donation of your time. »

Artists and Models

22 March 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

1955′s Artists and Models, directed by Frank Tashlin, neatly satirizes the cold-war paranoia of the fifties (and the McCarthy hearings in particular) by focusing on a similar witch hunt, the war against comic books.

Tashlin’s film, starring Dean Martin as a failed “fine” artist reduced to drawing for comic books and Jerry Lewis as the fella who reads them, has its basis in fact (more or less): future Mad publisher William Gaines actually appeared before a 1954 Senate subcommittee on juvenile delinquency where he defended his comics line including the politico’s favorite easy target, Tales from the Crypt.

Tashlin cut his teeth directing some of the more transgressive cartoons for Columbia and Warner Bros. so it’s no surprise he’s on the side of the angels (in this case Gaines),  blasting anything in sight with a pretentious bone in its body. In Artists and Models, fine art »

‘A Wolf at the Door,’ ‘Aurora’ Top Miami Festival

15 March 2014 5:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Miami – Sold by Mundial, a joint venture of Im Global and Mexico’s Canana, Brazilian Fernando Coimbra’s “A Wolf at the Door” topped the 31st Miami Film Festival Saturday, along with Chilean Rodrigo Sepulveda’s “Aurora.”

Adding to major kudos at the San Sebastian and Rio de Janeiro fests, “A Wolf” scooped the Knight Grand Jury Prize and best director award in Miami’s main Knight Competition, which features first-time feature filmmakers from Latin America, Spain and Portugal such as Coimbra and Matias Luchessi, along with more experienced directors making a step up in scale – Patxi Amezcua, with “7th Floor,” starring Ricardo Darin, and Alejandro Fernandez Almendras, with “To Kill a Man,” a Sundance grand jury prize winner.

Miami Film Festival Diary: 'Club Sandwich' charms as the sun shines

11 March 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Miami - Let it never be said that the Miami Film Festival doesn't know its competition. I'm not talking about South By Southwest, running concurrently in Texas at a pace so comparatively frantic that they scarcely seem like equivalent events, but the glorious spring sunshine, currently bathing the city's Art Deco-staggered skyline in honey-clear warmth too delicious to ditch for even the comfiest movie theater. Fully aware of this, Miami is the festival that comes out at night, concentrating its screenings in the evenings and following them up with parties that shoot for Cannes levels of razzle -- all without the shadow of a 7am wake-up call.  If there's a more coolly considerate festival on the circuit, I haven't been to it. Activity intensifies over the fest's opening and closing weekends. Arriving late on Sunday, I missed much of the former, including a glittery kickoff bash attended by Anne Hathaway, »

Miami Film Fest: Plummer & MacLaine Star in 'Elsa & Fred'

8 March 2014 8:52 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Christopher Plummer and Shirley MacLaine were charming the hell out of each other -- and everyone else in Miami – during Friday night’s gala opening of the Miami International Film Festival, which hosted the world premiere of “Elsa & Fred,” Michael Radford’s remake of the 2005 Argentine crowd-pleaser “Elsa y Fred.” But don’t tell Plummer it’s a remake. “I don’t like that word,” said 84-year-old Plummer, who did agree that working with his old pal Shirley was a joy, and seemed ready to take his one-man show “A Word or Two” on the road, or at least to Broadway (which he implied was a possibility). “For one thing, we’re in it, Shirley and I, and Michael totally rewrote it. So I prefer to think of it as the English-language version. “Some of the Argentine crew came and watched while we were filming,” he said, including director Marcos Carnevale. »

Interview: Paul Giamatti talks about Parkland

7 March 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Paul Giamatti talks about Parkland...

Director Peter Landesman credits Paul Giamatti’s involvement in Parkland as one of the key reasons that Abraham Zapruder’s family – consistently silent until now – agreed to collaborate with his film.

Landesman had reached out persistently to the relatives of Zapruder, the man who had witnessed the shooting of JFK through the lens of his little 8mm camera, but was turned away on numerous occasions.

“I’d go back to them and say, ‘no, really we want to tell his inner story.’ And there’d be silence. So I’d go back again because I just didn’t want to take ‘no’ for an answer,” says the director.

“I was starting to think that it would never happen, but then, when Paul Giamatti agreed to play Abraham Zapruder, we were able to present them with one of the finest actors of our generation – or of any generation for that matter. »

Where My Girls At? Chastain, Farmiga, Kidman, Bening

And now another edition of "Where My Girls At?" which occurs whenever Nathaniel is longing for actresses who have temporarily gone missing. I'm focusing this one on the beauties we won't even be seeing at the Oscars this year. 

Jessica Chastain

She wrote:

That's a wrap for me on A Most Violent Year. Working with talent like Jc Chandor and Oscar Isaac are the reason I love my job. I'm a very lucky girl. xxjes

Somehow I hadn't clocked this new project but it's an 1980s NY set thriller (so that explains the look) about an immigrant (one presumes that's Isaac, who seems to symbolize any "foreign" element these days to Hollywood) trying to capitalize on business opportunities but beware of Violence! Decay! Corruption! I miss Jes, don't you? I know that's insane since I saw her live »

20th Century Fox Dedicates Production Building to Richard D. Zanuck

26 February 2014 8:06 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Twentieth Century Fox honored the late Richard D. Zanuck with a building dedication ceremony on Tuesday.

“For those of us that work at Fox — he was family,” said Fox topper Jim Gianopulos. “He was an integral part of our legacy, he was like a pater familias to us.”

Zanuck was known in the industry for producing hits like “Jaws,” Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland,” and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” He won the Academy Award for “Driving Miss Daisy” in 1989 and was nominated for two other Oscars.

Zanuck was made president of 20th Century Fox at the age of 28, making him the youngest studio chief in Hollywood history. During his eight years as head of studio, Fox amassed 159 Oscar nominations.

“We waited to try and find a building worthy of Dick. We couldn’t, so we built one,” Gianopulos said.
