Robert Pattinson/Bel Ami Brazilian Trailer

29 December 2011 6:10 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Bel Ami movie: Robert Pattinson The Bel Ami movie trailer was released a week ago. Now comes the Brazilian Bel Ami trailer (scroll down), which happens to be the (classy) English-language trailer with Portuguese subtitles. The text below is an expanded version of the article posted at the time of the original trailer's release. In the trailer, we get to watch Robert Pattinson play a radically different character from his lovestruck vampire in the Twilight movies. Instead of having sex with Breaking Dawn's virginal Kristen Stewart, in Bel Ami Pattinson keeps himself busy with the more mature Kristin Scott Thomas and a whole array of other females of varying ages, shapes, and civil and social statuses. Two veterans of the British stage, Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod, directed this latest film adaptation of Guy de Maupassant's novel about Georges Duroy, an impoverished but ambitious ex-soldier who uses his drive, »

The Oldest Living "Best Actress" Nominees

29 December 2011 2:43 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Let's hear it for ladies of a certain age!

Mary Tyler Moore, television icon and an Oscar nominee for a terrifically icy variation on one of Oscar's favorite archetypes 'the monster mom' in Ordinary People (1980) turns 75 years old today. The last picture I can find of her out and about is the one to your left taken at the premiere of "Follies" starring Bernadette Peters (Do Not Miss It If you're In NYC!) which is just about the most appropriate show an aging diva can be seen at since it's all about aging showgirls looking back on their lives. (It's also one of the best musicals ever written but let's not get distracted...)

Mary Tyler Moore got me to thinking about the endurance of our beloved Best Actress nominees. There have been various media Oscar mash notes over the years that have claimed that winning an Oscar helps you live »

Blu-ray Review: Harmless Family Entertainment of ‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins’

29 December 2011 9:51 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – I have to admit that I went into my review of “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” expecting to feel torture not unlike when I suffered through “Yogi Bear” or “Gulliver’s Travels.” Live-action family entertainment has been the other side of the coin to the influx of quality animated entertainment. For every Pixar, there’s a “Chipwrecked.” For every “How to Train Your Dragon,” there’s a “Zookeeper.” To that end, I found “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” totally harmless, mostly because Jim Carrey gives it his all and brings enough manic glee to the proceedings to keep it from falling flat.

Blu-Ray Rating: 2.5/5.0

Like So many family films, “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” is about a selfish, wounded man learning to be a good father. It’s remarkable how many writers work out their issues with their parents through family films. The dad in question is, of course, Mr. Popper (Carrey), a man whose distant, »

Angela Lansbury 'very grateful' for Turner Classic Movies spotlight and 'Murder' move

28 December 2011 10:22 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"I'm not one of those people who sits in the dark, looking at their work from 70 years earlier," Angela Lansbury insists. "I'm really not."

Still, the widely loved stage and screen star is pleased that many of her films are about to be showcased by Turner Classic Movies. The channel has named the "Murder, She Wrote" television icon its Star of the Month for January, with Lansbury festivals running each Wednesday.

The titles range from her screen debut in 1944's "Gaslight" (Jan. 4) to her chilling portrayal of one of movie history's most manipulative mothers in 1962's "The Manchurian Candidate" (Jan. 18) -- both Oscar-nominated performances.

"When I see it now," Lansbury tells Zap2it of her "Gaslight" work, "I say, 'How did you ever have the chutzpah to play that role as you did, at that age?' I'm enormously interested in how I arrived at that performance, but I also »

March those Happy Feet and watch an Exclusive Clip from the Mr Popper’s Penguins DVD

14 December 2011 10:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

When he was not quietly terrifying Emma Stone over the internet this year saw Mr. Jim Carrey make a film about a man and a band of errant penguins, and as the film is out on DVD and Blu-ray this week we thought we’d celebrate with a clip culled from the film, positing that it might be just the thing for the cold winter nights.

Mean girls director Mark Waters directs both man and bird here and the human cast has Carla Gugino, Madeline Carroll and the legendary Angela Lansbury. See, you’re interested now aren’t you?

Before the clip please apply the following synopsis to your synapses.

An adaptation of the beloved 1938 children’s book, which won the 1939 Newbery Award. Mr. Popper is a house painter whose dreams of Arctic exploration prompt him to write letters to real explorers. One of them sends him a penguin, which he keeps in the icebox. »

Mark Kermode's DVD round-up

10 December 2011 4:07 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Rise of the Planet of the Apes; The First Movie; Super 8; Mr Popper's Penguins

One of the most interesting aspects of this year's traditional pre-Oscar shenanigans has been the growing campaign to earn a supporting actor nomination for Andy Serkis for his typically entrancing performance-capture work on Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011, Fox, 12). Having previously lent thespian credibility to this emergent artform with key roles in the Lord of the Rings trilogy (Gollum/Sméagol) and King Kong (the beauty behind the titular beast), Serkis continues to bridge the gap between acting and technology as the beating heart of British director Rupert Wyatt's intelligent series reboot.

Subtly mutating the bold slave uprising motif of J Lee Thompson's 1972 oddity Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (the most controversial instalment of the original series), this casts young simian Caesar as the accidental byproduct of a vivisective experiment to test a new, »

On top of the awesomeness that is Oldman, the film also boasts a bevy of heavy hitters in Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, John Hurt, and Mark Strong. I enjoy all of these actors a great deal, so regarding the cast, this film looks super solid. »

Blu-ray Review: Holiday Releases of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Sequels

22 November 2011 3:56 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – It’s been twenty years since “Beauty and the Beast” truly changed the animation landscape, bringing even more esteem to the Disney logo after the company’s comeback with “The Little Mermaid” by earning the first nomination for Best Picture for an animated film. The movie became a franchise, spawning toys, games, and even a hit musical. It also birthed a pair of straight-to-video quasi-sequels, both of which have been re-released just in time for families shopping on Black Friday. Add “Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas” and “Beauty and the Beast: Belle’s Magical World” to your shopping list.

Blu-Ray Rating: 3.0/5.0

“The Enchanted Christmas” came first, in 1997, and appears to have been the more popular of the two as it’s the only one to get a Blu-ray release whereas “Magical World” is DVD-only. “Christmas” is the superior of the two pieces, although both films suffer »

Shelagh Delaney obituary

22 November 2011 2:42 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Feisty playwright best known for her ground-breaking debut, A Taste of Honey

Shelagh Delaney was 18 when she wrote A Taste of Honey, one of the defining plays of the 1950s working-class and feminist cultural movements. The play's group of dysfunctional characters, utterly alien to the prevailing middle-class "anyone for tennis?" school of theatre, each explored their chances of attaining a glimpse of happiness. The central character, a young girl named Jo, lives in a decrepit flat in Salford with her mother, who is apt to wander off in pursuit of men with money. Jo becomes pregnant by a black sailor and is cared for by Geoffrey, a young gay friend, until her mother ousts him in what could be a burst of suppressed maternal love or a display of jealous control-freakery.

Delaney, who has died of cancer aged 71, had to endure harsh criticism for her attack on the orthodoxies of the period. »

2 Broke Girls 1.08 "And Hoarder Culture" Review

7 November 2011 7:16 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

2 Broke Girls 1.08 "And Hoarder Culture" Review

2 Broke Girls pulls together its latest effort "And Hoarder Culture" from its first season, which sees Max (Kat Dennings) taking a step forward in her relationship with Johnny (Nick Zano), while Caroline (Beth Behrs) lands a new job organizing a Hoarder's apartment. "And Hoarder Culture" serves up some of 2 Broke Girls' usual fare, but there's an intriguing undercurrent that may require a deeper, more theatrical examination.

It can be difficult to review an ongoing TV series week after week, particularly in your sophomore effort.  When last I watched 2 Broke Girls “And the Pretty Problem” I attempted to penetrate as deeply as I could*, so finding the next step in what to say a second time around with “And Hoarder Culture” might seem superfluous given my already ill-tempered disposition toward CBS, and the modern three-camera sitcom.

I want to like 2 Broke Girls, I do.  For all its crudity, »

The brilliant actress was first nominated for an Oscar 67 years ago, and she remains just as vibrant today. (You may have seen her in the recent Mr. Popper's Penguins).
