Daily | Nyff 2015 | Jacob Bernstein’s Everything Is Copy

3 October 2015 6:19 AM, PDT | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

Jacob Bernstein's Everything Is Copy, a documentary about his mother, screenwriter and director Nora Ephron (When Harry Met Sally…, Julie & Julia, Sleepless in Seattle), features anecdotes from the likes of Meg Ryan, Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Amy Pascal, Gay Talese, Rob Reiner, the late Mike Nichols and passages from Ephron's essays read by Lena Dunham, Reese Witherspoon, Rita Wilson and Gaby Hoffmann.

Film Review: ‘Everything Is Copy’

29 September 2015 4:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Both as warm and as no-holds-barred blunt as its subject, “Everything Is Copy” proves a stirring portrait of Nora Ephron by her son, writer-director Jacob Bernstein. Ephron passed away in 2012 at the age of 71 from leukemia, a fatal disease whose manifestation she kept secret from all but her closest confidants. That deliberate silence struck many, upon her death, as not only shocking, but something of a betrayal, given that Ephron had previously operated by her own mother’s motto that everything in life was fair-game fodder for her work. Whether Ephron truly believed that creed is the investigative through-line of Bernstein’s doc (which, following its New York Film Festival premiere, is slated for HBO in March 2016), and helps turn it not only a loving biography of a titanic talent, but a look at the way in which artists strike a balance between the personal and the private.

Oh, The Lego Movie... What hath thou wrought upon us? While we loved the adventures of Emmet and the rest, it has opened the doors to every other commercial touchstone and idea to flood into the film market. There’s already an Emoji movie in the works and now the company behind Pez sweets is looking to get a piece of that action.The venerable 88-year-old candy company, provider of those little fizzy sweets dispensed from the ratcheting heads of a variety of heads ranging from nature and people to superheroes and other pop cultural icons, has hatched a deal with Envision Media Arts to develop a film based on the plastic gadgets and their sugary torpedoes.Cameron Fay, who has graduated from writing and directing short films to co-scripting Bill Pullman/ Rita Wilson-starring indie comedy Brother In Laws, is attached to crank out the words for this one. »

Grab some Windex and maybe give yourself the first spritz after checking out the full photo of John Corbett in all his shirtless glory. Opa! That Toula is a lucky woman. (And that Ian is a lucky man.) Nia Vardalos became a major star back in 2002 thanks to "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," and she and Corbett are returning for "My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2," which is scheduled for a March 25, 2016 release.

Sequel filming started in late May in Toronto and just wrapped, which we know because Vardalos kindly shared some photos from set. A few days ago, she shared this shot with Corbett, joking, "Is someone trying to get baptized again in #MyBigFatGreekWedding2?":

Dawn Patrol movie review: total wipeout

16 June 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A repulsive and disgustingly manipulative roundrobin of revenge that veers from softcore porn to an emotionally ignorant parody of a family drama. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Dawn Patrol is not the action adventure thrill ride about surfers that it would like you to believe it is. It has nothing to do with either the 1930 or 1938 films of (nearly) the same name about World War I fighter pilots. But it does hope that you will grant its central character some of the automatic sympathy that comes with a soldier’s uniform, because that’s how it introduces us to the “plight” of John (Scott Eastwood: Fury). He is in a desert somewhere — we are clearly meant to infer that it’s Iraq or Afghanistan — wearing Marine fatigues and being held captive by a woman »

Chet Haze: Old Fogey Tom Hanks Doesn’t ‘Get It’ When His Son Says Crazy Things

10 June 2015 12:47 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Whereas Tom Hanks built his career on supreme likability, his son, aspiring rapper Chet Haze, is running headlong in the opposite direction. He continued to defend his use of the N-word to a TMZ reporter because of his identification with "black, hip-hop, whatever" culture. "Everyone's going to feel however they're going to feel about it," he said with an unidentified woman smirking in the back. "All I'm saying is that white people use that term, you know what I'm saying?" He continued: "I wouldn't go up to any black person and say it if I didn't know them like that." How thoughtful of him!So what do his famous parents, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, think about all of this? "They don't really tell me what to do anymore, 'cause I'm grown," he said. For instance, they told him to stop using social media, but Haze explained, "They're the old generation. »
