In defence of Vanilla Sky

Cameron Crowe and Tom Cruise reteamed, following Jerry Maguire, on Vanilla Sky. It's a film with far fewer fans...

This article contains spoilers for Vanilla Sky.

Memorable moments - it seemed to be what Cameron Crowe had a knack for creating. Lloyd Dobler stood with a ghetto blaster held aloft in Say Anything, the 'Show me the money' or 'You had me at hello' scenes from Jerry Maguire, the singalong of Tiny Dancer or the imminent plane crash in Almost Famous. It also seemed Cameron Crowe could do no wrong on the wave of the success of those films, but then there came a film which, instead of creating memorable moments, everybody seemed to want to forget all about.

In 2001, Cameron Crowe made the much maligned Vanilla Sky.

It seemed to really rub people up the wrong way upon release. Was this because it wasn't what they »

‘Sing’ Review

3 February 2017 8:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton, Tori Kelly, Jennifer Saunders, Peter Serafinowicz, Nick Kroll, Beck Bennett, Nick Offerman | Written by Garth Jennings | Directed by Christophe Lourdelet, Garth Jennings

Whilst Disney seem to be raiding their animated back-catalogue in the hopes of finding their next big cinema hit, abandoning the joyous nature of the animated movie for more dour live-action versions, it’s left to other studios – like Dreamworks, Illumination etc. – to keep the slew of animated kids film coming. Current kings of the CG-animated movie Illumination Entertainment, who also have Despicable Me 3 out later this year, hit cinemas early with Sing, a truly family-orientated film that takes it’s story from the current popularity of the TV talent show.

Sing tells the story of Buster Moon (McConaughey) a koala who grew up with a passion for theatre. However that passion does not »

‘Stephen Colbert’ From ‘The Colbert Report’ Says Goodbye To Barack Obama

20 January 2017 7:43 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Last night on “The Late Show,” host Stephen Colbert brought out a very special guest to say goodbye to President Barack Obama on his last full day in office: his old persona “Stephen Colbert” from his previous Comedy Central show “The Colbert Report.” Residing in the Mountains of Justice, Colbert informed the Late Show host that he was not, in fact, his old persona but rather his twin (for the benefit of the lawyers), but soon he jumped behind the desk, complete with sword and shield, to bring us another edition of his famous segment The Word (on CBS, it’s The Werd). Watch the video below.

'The Young Pope' Season Premiere Recap: Heat Pray Love

15 January 2017 7:00 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"We have forgotten to masturbate!"

So proclaims Pope Pius Xiii to the adoring throngs gathered in St. Peter's Square to hear the first homily of his papacy. Yet when it comes to the jaw-dropping moments in the premiere episode of The Young Pope, the Holy Father's ode to onanism barely even makes the Top 10.

Italian writer-director Paolo Sorrentino kicks off his highly anticipated series with the surreal dream-image of the new pope emerging from a literal mountain of dead and dying babies. He follows it up with not one but »

10 January 2017 5:30 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since David Bowie‘s death. It hurts for many reasons, but if there’s any solace to glean from the loss, it’s that Bowie has been properly mourned. Not just among civilians — you’d be hard-pressed to find an artist who didn’t turn in a Bowie cover at some point. Here are some of our favorites from the past year, ranging from deep cuts to the obvious ones.

Seu Jorge, “Space Oddity”

Emerald City Review: NBC's Oz Reboot Has Courage, Short on Heart and Brains

3 January 2017 6:00 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

A sexy, gritty reboot of The Wizard of Oz. It sounds like something Jack Donaghy would dream up on 30 Rock, doesn’t it? Yet Emerald City isn’t a 10-second sitcom joke; it’s a 10-hour actual thing that NBC has created. And while it displays some dazzling visual flair and is plenty ambitious in its scope, like a certain famous Scarecrow, this ponderous revamp doesn’t seem to have much of a brain at all.

Debuting Friday, Jan. 6 at 9/8c, Emerald City begins, appropriately enough, in Kansas, with a grown-up Dorothy Gale (True Detective‘s Adria Arjona) searching for »
