Dancing With the Stars Finals: Which Couple Should Win Season 22?

23 May 2016 7:05 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

It’s time to give Dancing With the Stars credit where it’s due.

A few months back, as I compiled my gallery of Season 22 odds, I found it difficult to suppress my scoffs as I scrolled through a seemingly dismal lineup of celebrities. From Geraldo Rivera to Doug Flutie, it seemed as though the Season 22 roster was the ABC series’ least impressive yet, resulting in a general feeling of “meh” as the premiere approached.

Now, to be fair, Geraldo had no business stepping even his pinky toe on the ballroom floor, and Doug — though he exhibited great sportsmanship — was »

Dancing with the Stars: Ginger Zee Earns Perfect Score Despite Injury - Plus Nyle Dimarco and Paige VanZant Inspire Tears

"Pain is temporary. Glory lasts a lifetime,"Len Goodman told Ginger Zee on Monday's Dancing with the Stars - and she took that to heart. Despite suffering a painful pelvis injury during rehearsals, the Good Morning America meteorologist, 35, dazzled the judges, earning a perfect 30 out of 30 for a dance in which she and pro Val Chmerkovskiy paid tribute to Hollywood legends Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. "I just had to go for it and I'm so glad we did," Zee said. Earlier in the broadcast, the show went behind-the-scenes of her injury. "Everything is starting to give, and it couldn't come at a more pressure-filled, »

Jim Jarmusch Talks ‘Paterson,’ His Love for Poetry & Hip-Hop, Tilda Swinton, and Being Grateful

23 May 2016 9:28 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Legendary American independent filmmaker Jim Jarmusch has been a frequent visitor to the Cannes Film Festival ever since winning the Camera d’Or for Stranger Than Paradise in 1984. He took the Grand Jury prize in 2005 for Broken Flowers but has never managed to nab the Big One. His latest film, Paterson, which premiered last week in competition here, is the story of a bus driver (played by Adam Driver) named Paterson who lives in Paterson NJ, walks his wife’s bulldog, Marvin, and writes poems in his spare time. We sat down with the great silver-haired Son of Lee Marvin to talk hip-hop, Tilda Swinton, and the poetry of everyday things.

Some critics have called this your most personal film. How do would you respond to a statement like that?

I don’t know. With our last film, Only Lovers Left Alive, everyone said “Aha! His most personal film!” I don’t know. »

Cannes Film Review: ‘Café Society’

11 May 2016 6:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Going into a new Woody Allen film, there’s always the hope that it’s going to be major, like “Blue Jasmine,” and not one of his trifles, like the Allen movies that have opened the Cannes Film Festival in recent years (“Hollywood Ending,” “Midnight in Paris”). At this point, however, his track record vastly favors the probability that it’s going to be a trifle, at which point the question then becomes: Will it be one of his good ones — that is, one of those Allen fables that really sings? “Café Society,” starring Jesse Eisenberg as a sweetly naïve Bronx nebbish who journeys to Hollywood in the 1930s to seek his fortune, has been made with all the verve and high-style panache and star magnetism of a small-scale Allen gem. Yet the film, watchable as it is, never quite overcomes the sense that it’s a lavish diagram working »

Co-Stars Who Should Have Worked Together More Than Once

9 April 2016 5:24 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Sometimes actors are cast in a movie together and instantly display great onscreen chemistry. You look at them and think, “These two should work together again. They make a good team.” Sometimes they do reunite and it leads to a series of great screen collaborations, but sometimes they don’t and we’re left wishing the pair would have made more films together.

 Back in the days of the old ‘Studio System,’ movies studio execs would look for actors who had good on-screen chemistry and repeatedly cast them together in films. This was called “packaging”, and it lead to the frequent teaming of people like Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers; William Powell & Myrna Loy; Humphrey Bogart & Lauren Bacall; Boris Karloff & Bela Lugosi; Bob Hope & Bing Crosby; Errol Flynn & Olivia de Havilland; Nelson Eddy & Jeannette MacDonald; etc., etc.

 The ‘Studio System’ is long gone and so is “packaging”. It’s a pity »

Oberon on TCM: Actress with Mystery Past Wears Men's Clothes, Fights Nazis

18 March 2016 9:10 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Merle Oberon movies: Mysterious star of British and American cinema. Merle Oberon on TCM: Donning men's clothes in 'A Song to Remember,' fighting hiccups in 'That Uncertain Feeling' Merle Oberon is Turner Classic Movies' Star of the Month of March 2016. The good news: the exquisite (and mysterious) Oberon, whose ancestry has been a matter of conjecture for decades, makes any movie worth a look. The bad news: TCM isn't offering any Oberon premieres despite the fact that a number of the actress' films – e.g., Temptation, Night in Paradise, Pardon My French, Interval – can be tough to find. This evening, March 18, TCM will be showing six Merle Oberon movies released during the first half of the 1940s. Never a top box office draw in the United States, Oberon was an important international star all the same, having worked with many of the top actors and filmmakers of the studio era. »

9 March 2016 12:39 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Thrills and spills by Jennie Kermode

After a dramatic start marked by Roman antics and prison breakouts, the Glasgow Film Festival settled down a little on Friday morning. A vibrant screening of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers classic Swing Time was followed by a chance to catch up on some of the previous evening’ most popular films. Fans were disappointed that Peter Greenaway would not be attending the festival as planned to give a talk and introduce his latest work, Eisenstein In Guanajuato, but the screening itself still went down a treat, as beautiful as people expected even if it didn’t seem likely to have the staying power of some of his previous work.

Kansas City Confidential | Blu-ray Review

2 February 2016 9:15 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

After falling into the public domain, Phil Karlson’s 1952 film noir Kansas City Confidential became unfairly lumped into B-grade bracket, a disservice considering the title’s odd narrative and eventual influence on contemporary filmmakers. Karlson, who would eventually turn to mainstream efforts starring the likes of Dean Martin and Elvis Presley in the 1960s and 1970s, contributed several enjoyable minor noir efforts in the 1950s. These would include 1952’s Scandal Sheet with Donna Reed and Broderick Crawford, Kim Novak casino heist effort 5 Against the House, and that same year’s Tight Spot with a peculiar role for Ginger Rogers. But none have enjoyed the staying power of this particular heist drama, now restored with its most accomplished transfer yet.
