Week in Review: Spend the night at the Godzilla Hotel in Japan

27 February 2015 10:36 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Anyone who has ever watched the Godzilla films knows that he isn’t a monster at all. More of a protector really. So this hotel room opening in Tokyo, really is quite soothing to know you have someone looking over you. Not scary at all, honestly.

For just $334 a night on weekdays, you can have Godzilla’s hand looming over you as you sleep and a statue of the kaiju peacefully guarding your doorway. You can even get a room that looks directly out at a Godzilla head mounted on the roof of the hotel.

Ah the Japanese; so like us.

We all know Michael Keaton should’ve won an Oscar last Sunday. In fact, he probably thought so too. Take a look at this Vine, in which it kind of looks like he’s putting a piece of paper, maybe an acceptance speech back into his jacket pocket right »

New on Netflix Streaming: March 2015

24 February 2015 4:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

What will March bring to Netflix? Plenty of great TV shows, some killer recent and classic movies, and a slew of highly anticipated Netflix Originals.

First off, there's more amazing TV coming to Netflix in March than we've seen in the past six, with new seasons of "Mad Men," "Glee," and "Archer" coming to the streaming service. What's more? The complete series of "3rd Rock From the Sun" (Yes!) and "A Different World" are also being added. For the latter, I plan on queueing up some "very special episodes" that remind me of my childhood. Also, Marisa Tomei was on it. Remember?! In addition to the shows you know, some spankin' new Netflix Originals are being added: Tina Fey's half-hour comedy "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," starring "The Office's" Ellie Kemper, and "Bloodline," a dramatic thriller starring Oscar-winner Sissy Spacek.

In terms of movies, Netflix is not disappointing. Recent releases »

HBO And George Clooney Plan Miniseries Ms. Starring Marisa Tomei And Kathy Najimy

24 February 2015 3:17 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

George Clooney is not particularly known for his feminism, nor his producing of television. These points are set to change, however, with news of an upcoming HBO miniseries – executive produced by Clooney, Grant Heslov and Bruce Cohen – titled Ms. The project will star Marisa Tomei as Gloria Steinem, and Kathy Najimy as Bella Azbug, and will focus specifically on the founding of the groundbreaking Ms Magazine in 1971. Steinem herself will serve as consultant on the series.

Ms Magazine is an American feminist publication which made its debut as an insert in New York Magazine in 1971. Its first full issue hit the news stands in January 1972, with its initial run having sold out in eight days. Now published by the Feminist Majority Foundation, the magazine has a rich history of being at the forefront of the feminist movement, being the first U.S publication to address the subject of domestic violence, »

Film Independent Spirit Awards 2015 Live-Blog

21 February 2015 1:55 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

HitFix Award Gurus Kris Tapley and Greg Ellwood are both attending Saturday's Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (February 21) afternoon in Santa Monica and they left me to handle HitFix's Independent Spirit Awards Winners & Losers list.  And once I'm watching Saturday's show, I might as well be live-blogging Saturday's show as preparation for Sunday's Oscars live-blog, especially since is the last time that "Birdman" and "Boyhood" will be going head-to-head for Best Picture (along with "Selma" and "Whiplash") before the Academy Awards. So follow along and say "Hi" in the comments below... And remember that Saturday's show, hosted by Kristen Bell and Fred Armisen, is airing live on IFC, not that obnoxious tape-delayed thing they used to do! 1:50 p.m. Pt. The show hasn't started, but if you're following the Winners list, you know that "Birdman" has already won for for cinematography, while "Whiplash" won for editing, both results I can accept. »

Which Famous Neighbor Does Orlando Bloom Hate Living Next Door To?

20 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Luckily, Taylor Swift won’t have to shake anything off when it comes to Orlando Bloom wanting to move the hell away from her. Reports claim Bloom isn’t feeling being neighbors with the singer in NYC’s Tribeca neighborhood. It’s not because her cats have gotten out of control, and most definitely not because her model friends constantly parade in and out. It’s because the paparazzi are always swarming her place.

It’s only been six months and the actor has reportedly already put his apartment on the market. Maybe he isn’t feeling the love since he’s not as popular with the press, or maybe he just doesn’t want to deal with the paparazzi madness (because who has time for that)?

Bloom isn’t the only A-lister who has had recent Manhattan living struggles. A few weeks ago, John Lennon‘s son was sued »

Love Is Strange review: Alfred Molina stars in an understated gem

17 February 2015 4:45 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Ira Sachs; Screenwriters: Ira Sachs, Mauricio Zacharias; Starring: John Lithgow, Alfred Molina, Marisa Tomei; Running time: 94 mins; Certificate: 15

Film-by-film with Alfred Molina: Spider-Man, Love Is Strange, more

"When a piece is that romantic, there's no need to embellish," remarks Alfred Molina's music teacher George after witnessing an orchestral performance. It's a piece of advice heeded by writer-director Ira Sachs for his touching Love Is Strange, a film laden with dignity and restraint that never needs to resort to melodrama or contrivance.

The story kicks off with the wedding of George and artist Ben (John Lithgow), a long-term gay couple whose tenderness, sincerity and emotional intimacy is wonderfully captured by Sachs's lens. They're soon forced to live apart for financial reasons after George is abhorrently sacked from his teaching post once the news of his same-sex marriage spreads. Life apart poses its own problems, especially once Ben's health begins to deteriorate. »

Hugh Grant Is 'Delighted' When He's Not Acting

13 February 2015 3:46 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Hugh Grant, king of romantic comedies, is back on the big screen this weekend for another round of love and laughs in The Rewrite.

The British star's role in the new rom-com is his first movie since 2012, and that’s no accident.

"I've always been half running away from show business and I'm delighted when I'm not doing any acting," says Grant.

News: Hugh Grant Responds to Jon Stewart Diss

Instead of leading ladies, Grant’s been pursuing other interests. He was inspired to become more active in politics after the 2011 News of the World phone-hacking scandal and has been working on a political campaign that he calls his "full-time job."

Grant plays a teacher in The Rewrite, and the actor admits he's also considered education as a secondary career.

"I've done tiny bits of teaching in my life and I like it," says Grant. "My mom was a teacher and I've seen that it's strangely fulfilling »

Love Is Strange review

13 February 2015 5:55 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

John Lithgow and Alfred Molina star in arguably the most grown-up film in UK cinemas this Valentine's Day...

Dig beneath the chat about explicit content and it being reported as a follow-up of sorts to Queer As Folk, and Russell T Davies' new programme Cucumber has proven itself to be one of the most grown up dramas about relationships of recent times. At a point when television and cinema tends to focus on the challenges of young love, Cucumber takes a cold stare at what happens many years down the line. It's often uncomfortable to watch, but it feels true, honest and compelling drama.

Love Is Strange attracts fewer headlines, but it too not only treats its audience as grown-ups, it makes sure the film is about grown ups as well.

It centres on the relationship between John Lithgow's Ben and Alfred Molina's George, a long-attached couple, »

Julianne Moore played dual characters on "As the World Turns," Laurence Fishburne played a teen drug dealer on "One Life to Live" and Susan Sarandon played a murderous drifter on "Search for Tomorrow," a soap that was also among the first gigs for Tommy Lee Jones, Kevin Kline, and Viggo Mortensen.
