StreamFix: Movie classics on Netflix written by women over 40

21 April 2015 2:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Meryl Streep, who is officially a genius angel sent from a better dimension, is funding a screenwriting lab for women over 40. The initiative aims to create opportunities for that contingent, and it'll be run by New York Women in Film and Television and Iris, a collective of women filmmakers. Because this idea is so brilliant, we'll toast a bunch of 40+-year-old female screenwriters whose works are available on Netflix now. The Kids are All Right (Lisa Cholodenko) Aside from the fact that "The Kids are All Right" feels like a prime James L. Brooks feature, the 2010 family drama gives you a myriad of irresistible moments and performances. Annette Bening is biting and funny as an alcoholic lesbian mother; Julianne Moore is harried and loving as her conflicted wife. Mark Ruffalo, Mia Wasikowska, and Josh Hutcherson add perfectly pitched dramedy with their sincere roles. You want to hug this movie, but »

Hitchcock’s The Birds Screens at Schlafly Bottleworks April 2nd

26 March 2015 8:26 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Can I bring the lovebirds, Mitch? they haven’t harmed anyone”

The Birds screens at Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest Ave.- at Manchester – Maplewood, Mo 63143) next Thursday, April 2nd at 7pm. It is a benefit for Helping Kids Together

Someone recently asked me why the birds in Hitchcock’s The Birds suddenly decide to attack people. Why indeed? That’s what everyone wants to know. Is there some connection to the middling soap opera we see played out over the first hour of the 1963 film and their attacks? Is it because they are fed up with all the pollution and people shooting at them all the time? Or is it just because they can?

Maybe Hitchcock just wanted to make a scary movie. He might ask you to imagine yourself in the restaurant and suddenly a bloodied man staggers in and says “The birds are attacking and we don’t know why! »

Heading Toward an Oscar Rarity

2 February 2015 7:53 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

The stars may align in Hollywood this year in a way we’ve only seen once in the past 77 years.

Since the Oscars went to four acting categories in 1937, only once have all four of  the acting winners been 46 or older.

But that could change this year, since all of this year’s acting favorites are 46 or older, except The Theory of Everything’s Eddie Redmayne, 33.

The frontrunners — who now look locked in for Oscar wins — for three of the acting categories are supporting actress nominee Patricia Arquette, 46; supporting actor nominee J.K. Simmons, 60, and lead actress nominee Julianne Moore, 54. If all three of the aforementioned nominees win and if Birdman’s Michael Keaton, 63, beats Redmayne for lead actor, all four winners will be 46 or older.

The last time all four acting winners were older than 46 was 1982.

That year, Maureen Stapleton was the youngest acting winner »

Rod Taylor dead at 84: Actor best known for 'The Time Machine' and 'The Birds' Rod Taylor, best remembered for the early 1960s movies The Time Machine and The Birds, and for his supporting role as Winston Churchill in Quentin Tarantino's international hit Inglourious Basterds, has died. Taylor suffered a heart attack at his Los Angeles home earlier this morning (January 8, 2015). Born on January 11, 1930, in Sydney, he would have turned 85 on Sunday. Based on H.G. Wells' classic 1895 sci-fi novel, The Time Machine stars Rod Taylor as a H. George Wells, an inventor who comes up with an intricate chair that allows him to travel across time. (In the novel, the Victorian protagonist is referred to simply as the "Time Traveller.") After experiencing World War I and World War II, Wells decides to fast forward to the distant future, ultimately arriving at a place where humankind has been split »
