Why 1998 Was the Best Year In Film History

11 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Check here for a complete list of our essays. Just one glance at the Oscar nominees for 1998 might make it seem less a questionable choice for “best year in film” — and more an insane one.   Instead of a 1974 – The Godfather II, The Conversation, Chinatown, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, etc – or even a 1994, where Shawshank, Quiz Show, and Pulp Fiction lost to Gump – you choose a year where the Oscars would allow Roberto Benigni to climb atop both the figurative and literal chairs of the Shrine?   Fine, step away from the Oscars. Would you still celebrate a year that saw not one, but two movies about asteroids threatening the Earth?  A year that saw such scars carved across cinematic history as Patch Adams, My Giant, Stepmom, and Krippendorf’s Tribe?   It bears repeating: Krippendorf’S Tribe? »

Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson on the Oscars' Red Carpet Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson at the Academy Awards Eli Wallach and wife Anne Jackson are seen above arriving at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, held on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. The 95-year-old Wallach had received an Honorary Oscar at the Governors Awards in November 2010.

Ultimately, however, Frank Sinatra – then a has-been following a string of box office duds – was cast for a pittance, getting beaten to a pulp by a pre-stardom Ernest Borgnine.

Elizabeth Olsen Reveals Why She Went Naked On Camera, Calls Mary-Kate and Ashley "Inspiring Women"

23 April 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Elizabeth Olsen isn't afraid to strip down ... if it's the right part. The 26-year-old actress graces the cover of the latest issue of Net-a-Porter’s The Edit, where she opens up about her decision to go naked on the big screen. In fact, Kate Winslet and Cate Blanchett's infamous nude scenes made the young star feel more comfortable shedding her clothes in 2011's "Martha Marcy May Marlene" and Spike Lee's "Oldboy" remake in 2013. "I love Kate Winslet and Cate Blanchett," she tells the mag. "I remember watching 'Holy Smoke' and thinking that it was so reassuring to see a young Kate doing something that was so bold in so many ways." "I thought to myself, 'Ok, so it doesn't destroy your career if you appear nude or take risks'," she says, adding, "because not everyone in my family and group of friends thought it was the best idea »

Elizabeth Olsen: 'It doesn't destroy your career if you appear nude'

23 April 2015 6:55 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Elizabeth Olsen has a message for fellow actresses starting out in Hollywood - it doesn't destroy your career if you appear naked on screen.

The 26-year-old star told Net-a-Porter's The Edit that she took inspiration from a young Kate Winslet in choosing to reveal all for a part.

"I love Kate Winslet and Cate Blanchett," she explained. "I remember watching Holy Smoke and thinking that it was so reassuring to see a young Kate doing something that was so bold in so many ways.

"I thought to myself, 'Ok, so it doesn't destroy your career if you appear nude or take risks', because not everyone in my family and group of friends thought it was the best idea to be naked in a movie.

"There are actresses, young and old, who have decided never to do that and they become those examples people talk to you about, [but] there are times »

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Blu-ray Review

22 April 2015 12:49 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Peter Jackson

Starring: Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Ian McKellen, Evangeline Lilly, Benedict Cumberbatch, Luke Evans, Lee Pace, Cate Blanchett, Christopher Lee

Running Time: 144 Minutes

Certificate: 12

Extras: Recruiting the Five Armies, Completing Middle Earth, ‘The Last Goodbye’ Music Video, New Zealand: Home of Middle Earth Part 3.

When it was originally announced The Hobbit would be divided into three films, I wasn’t sure why it was necessary and after a long year wait for the finale since the vivacious Smaug outing, we head into The Battle Of The Five Armies and on reflection… I feel despondently justified.

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies is not a bad movie but after the epic build-up in The Desolation Of Smaug, we’re thrown bang in the middle of the action and, for me, it doesn’t work very well. It’s not that the spectacle isn’t glorious but »

‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ Blu-ray Review

20 April 2015 7:04 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Ken Stott, Graham McTavish, William Kircher, James Nesbitt, Stephen Hunter, Dean O’Gorman, Aidan Turner, John Callen, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Lee Pace, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Sylvester McCoy, Luke Evans, Stephen Fry, Manu Bennett | Written by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Peter Jackson, Guillermo del Toro | Directed by Peter Jackson

When The Hobbit was announced I’m sure nobody would have thought it would be three movies long, J. R. R.Tolkien fit the whole story into one book, and even that wasn’t very long.  Here we are though with the release of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies which in theory should be the last Lord of the Rings movie Peter Jackson makes.  Unless he can pull more tales of Middle-earth out of the appendices of course (and I’m sure some of us hope he could).

Cannes Film Festival 2015 Lineup Includes Inside Out, New Woody Allen, and More

16 April 2015 8:51 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The films competing in the 68th Cannes Film Festival were announced this morning at a press conference in Paris. The festival’s new president Pierre Lescure and Thierry Frémaux kept the suspense going as they unveiled this year’s eclectic and rather art house-y selection. In total, 16 films have been selected in the official competition thus far. Another four films are set to be added in the next couple of weeks. The official competition will be presided by the Coen Brothers. Their short film about cinema, which had screened for the 65th anniversary of the festival in 2007, was once again shown at the press conference. Starring Josh Brolin, it is both funny and poignant. American competitors include Todd Haynes with Carol, starring Cate Blanchett, and Gus Van Sant is marking his return to the Croisette with The Sea of Trees, starring Matthew McConaughey and Naomi Watts. Australian co-production Macbeth, directed by Justin Kurzel, »

Canada’s Villeneuve (“Prisoners,” “Enemy”) will bring his Mexican drug-cartel drama “Sicario,” with Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin, while Australia’s Kurzel (“The Snowtown Murders”) secured a Palme berth for “Macbeth,” his Shakespeare adaptation toplining Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. »

14 April 2015 5:18 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Australian actor reiterates her distaste for fashion-focused interviews with female stars on red carpets before awards

Cate Blanchett has blasted the media obsession with women’s fashion on red carpets and called for interviewers to keep their questions focused on movies. Speaking to the Australian edition of Harper’s Bazaar magazine, the Oscar-winner said premieres and awards ceremonies should be a celebration of performances rather than sartorial razzmatazz.

“Since I’ve been strutting the red carpet, things have changed a lot,” Blanchett reportedly says. “The way women are asked about those red-carpet moments. Oh my God. It’s just a dress!”

Cate Blanchett Disses Mani-Cam: "Next It Will Be, 'What Brand of Tampon Are You Wearing?'"

13 April 2015 12:15 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Cate Blanchett is explaining why she refuses to show off her manicure on the Mani-Cam -- and she isn't holding back! "Since I've been struttin' the red carpet, things have changed a lot," the 45-year-old star tells Harper's Bazaar Australia. "The way women are asked about those red-carpet moments. Oh my God. It's just a dress!"  "People forget the fact that women are up there [at the Academy Awards] because they've given extraordinary performances," she continues. "It's a wonderful excuse to dress up and have F.U.N. But let's not forget the work." The Oscar-winning actress is always one to watch on the red carpet, but she's not a fan of news outlets getting up close and personal with her.  "Next it will be, 'What brand tampon are you wearing?" she jokes, when asked about the infamous Mani-Cam. "How much more intimate can they get? 'Show us your knickers'? There is a line. »
