Newswire: Candy-asses Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson fought over trailers and Ballers

17 August 2016 12:05 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. Elizabeth Taylor and Debbie Reynolds. Jon Lovitz and Andy Dick. Theirs are the celebrity feuds that nearly shook Tinseltown to its cheap tinsel-filled core, the clashes of ego that briefly threatened to derail this very serious business of vanity. And they were all fucking weak compared to the fuming Cold War that’s so bitterly divided the Fast & Furious franchise like an Iron Ampersand, creating a rift between co-stars Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson that no one involved will ever be able to get over, not even in a car that is driving very, very fast. Incandescently fast.

From Johnson’s first passive-aggressive volleys against his “candy-ass,” “chicken-shit” male costars, to the reports of secret, ass-hatchet-burying meetings, to Johnson’s Tolstoy-like assertions that all families are candy-asses in their own way, the narrative of this entire feud has been all about trying to move ...

Congratulations, Lily Tomlin!

5 August 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Photographed by Sebastian Kim for Interview

Lily Tomlin will be honored with SAG's Lifetime Achievement Award at this January's ceremony. SAG is strong with the actress-loving (unlike Oscar). This marks the 4th year in a row that the award has gone to a woman following Carol Burnett, Debbie Reynolds, and Rita Moreno.

We celebrated Lily a lot here last year with a look at her filmography, my own top 10 choices amongst her performances and I was proud to be on the poster for Grandma extolling her virtues so we've already had our say. I only ask that during the clip reel they show something from I ♥️ Huckabees (2004) because I'll never get enough of that character. I wish she and Dustin Hoffman could do a whole series about them or at least occasional webisodes of the further adventures of Vivian and Bernard, Existential Detectives.

Marni Nixon (1930-2016)

25 July 2016 11:53 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It is with a heavy heart that I share the news that Marni Nixon, beloved voice of Hollywood's supersized musicals of the 50s and 60s has died of breast cancer at 86. It was a long and good and musical life, if never celebrated enough by the culture she gave so much to. It had been our long held dream to see her given an Honorary Oscar which must now be a dream unfulfilled. Because I don't have the words today, I thought I'd share a piece I wrote ten years ago on how special Marni Nixon was to me, a baby cinephile growing up with musicals as my favorite form of cinematic bliss.

Marni Nixon is my Kathy Selden

Director/ writer/ actor Gary Marshall dies at age 81

22 July 2016 9:49 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

On Tuesday July 19, Hollywood lost a giant in the world of comedy with the passing of beloved director/writer/producer/actor Gary Marshall at the age of 81. While most of the news outlets focused in on his considerable work in television (he practically owned Tuesday nights in the 1970’s with his “Happy Days” empire), this site would like to salute Mr. Marshall’s work on both sides of the camera.

After impressive writing credits on many of the classic sitcoms of the 1960’s, it was inevitable that the movie studios would tap him to contribute to several screenplays. The first was produced in 1968, a marriage comedy starring James Garner and Debbie Reynolds, How Sweet It Is. A youth-oriented romantic comedy starring Jacqueline Bisset, The Grasshopper, was released in 1970. TV triumphs quickly followed, so Marshall’s movie career was put on hold for more than a dozen years. 1982 was the year »

Who Should Receive Honorary Oscars Next?

19 July 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

We're about one month away from the announcement of this year's Honorary Oscar recipients. They're usuallly announced at the end of August for a November Governor's Awards ceremony. This year's ceremony will be on November 12th. Last year rumors circled that it was Doris Day's turn but that didn't turn out to be accurate. For the past two years, The Film Experience has tried to make up for the dearth of movie site reporting about the Oscar Honorary careers (beyond the sharing of press releases / YouTube videos of their speeches) with mini-retrospectives so we're always hoping they'll choose well to give us wonderful careers to discuss right here. 

Let's reprint a list of worthies we shared a year or so ago, with a few adjustments, in case any of the elites in the Academy are undecided about who to put forth or get behind for these coveted honors.

Looking For Albert Brooks In The Netflix World

10 July 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

In the hierarchy of significance in what made news this past week, the sudden availability of the entirety of Albert Brooks’ output of feature films as a writer-director via Netflix Streaming may not carry the urgency of, say, the alarming continuance of African-American deaths under police fire, the attack on a peaceful protest against police violence by shooters who killed five law enforcement officers and wounded several more in Dallas, the ongoing partisan bloviating inspired by the FBI’s decision to not charge Hilary Clinton with federal crimes, or the frightening clown circus of offenses that characterizes the dawning of each new day in Donald Trump’s  presidential campaign. But art can, among many other things, provide a momentary respite from pain, sometimes even while examining some of the more frustrating, self-centric and petty dissonances within our own, or someone’s else’s worldview, and in this Brooks’ films at »

Cannes Review: 'Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds' Is a Touching Mother-Daughter Documentary

14 May 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Carrie Fisher has a life-sized Princess Leia sex doll in the attic of her house, but she can't figure out how it works. Her mother, "Singin' in the Rain" star Debbie Reynolds, once amassed the world's largest collection of movie memorabilia before she had to sell most of it in order to pay off her debt. These are two magnificent women who live in the shadows of their own legacies, surrounded by petrified images of their former selves. Fisher has been in the public eye since the day was born, and her tumultuous private life has always been an open book (two of them, actually), but neither she nor her mother have ever been seen quite as clearly as they are in the casually enthralling new documentary, "Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds."  Read More: Cannes Classics Highlights Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds and Women of Old Hollywood The »

Funniest Mom Ever: The Detour’s Natalie Zea talks Debbie Reynolds, cars and breast milk?

9 May 2016 5:00 PM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

That didn’t just happen. Yep, she ate all of those pot-laced gummy bears and left her husband naked at the Swift Stays Suite pool. That’s the loopy, making-the-best-of-this-road-trip-gone-bad Robin Parker, whose questionable parenting — combined with such sincere explanations — make her one of the funniest moms on TV today. Natalie Zea is comic gold as Robin in the TBS breakout comedy The Detour (Mondays 9pm Et). The series comes from comedy’s new powerhouse couple Jason Jones and Samantha Bee and is achingly hilarious.
