Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice Described As The Big Lebowski Meets The Long Goodbye

15 April 2014 6:54 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

As follow-up to the critical darling The Master, Paul Thomas Anderson is bringing us Inherent Vice, a 1970s-set crime drama based on the Thomas Pynchon novel about a drug-fueled detective on a search for his missing ex-girlfriend. His cast includes Jena Malone, Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, Benicio Del Toro, and Maya Rudolph. This much-anticipated film isn't scheduled to hit theaters until December, but one insider has tipped what fans should expect from P.T. Anderson's latest. The Film Stage spoke with an audience member from an early screening of the film. Read this unnamed viewer's impressions below: "Mix together The Big Lebowski and Altman.s The Long Goodbye, turn it into a two-and-a-half hour Pt Anderson epic and you.re getting close to the awesome experience of Inherent Vice. Even Joaquin Phoenix.s performance has echoes of 70′s Elliot Gould with a touch of The Dude. »

The Complete Groundbreaking ‘I Spy’ Series w/ Bill Cosby Coming Out On DVD In June (And An Appreciation)

7 April 2014 4:09 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Of course looking at it today, it doesn't seem like such a momentous event, but nearly 50 years ago in September 1965 on NBC, the debut of I Spy with Robert Culp and Bill Cosby was a big deal... No, let's make that a Huge deal.First of all, forget that awful 2002 I Spy movie remake with Eddie Murphy and Owen Wilson; but then again, you don't have to. It was pretty forgettable anyway, even while you were watching it.But the TV series was something else altogether. It premiered at a time of great traumatic political and social upheaval in the country, and a lot people felt that a new era was dawning. Though there had been a few TV comedies headlining black performers »

‘Silicon Valley’ Is Already Everything ‘The Internship’ Should Have Been

7 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Mike Judge’s fresh out of the box HBO series, Silicon Valley, has only aired a single episode on the premium channel, but the comedy show has already surpassed last year’s star-studded feature outing, The Internship, in nearly every way possible. If you’ve forgotten the 2013 summer comedy, well, good for you, but the first episode of Silicon Valley will likely jog some memories loose for you – especially when main characters Richard (Thomas Middleditch) and Big Head (Josh Brener) head off to work at a sparkly, cultish campus that looks a whole hell of a lot like Google. Shawn Levy’s film centered on a pair of recently laid off old school sale dudes – Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, a reunion that basically served as the film’s only real attraction – who snag internships at Google (and, yes, actual Google, which feels like it just bankrolled the entire production) and attempt to reinvent themselves at the »

Starsky & Hutch

2 April 2014 3:36 AM, PDT | Sky Movies | See recent Sky Movies news »

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson form the titular cop team in Todd 'Road Trip' Phillips' rambunctious remake of the 70s TV smash. 'Hutch' Wilson generously allows Stiller's Starsky centre stage but makes a perfect foil as they strive to take down Vince Vaughn's drug baron. Will Ferrell's uncredited appearance as crazy jailbird Big Earl is the scene-stealing cherry on this winning mix of slick wit and tomfoolery. »

Ben Stiller is the new museum nightwatchman who finds his shift anything but peaceful when the exhibits come to riotous life. As the night wears on, he finds himself face to face with Owen Wilson's cowboy, President Roosevelt (Robin Williams) and Steve Coogan as a mini Roman centurion with anger management issues. Cheaper By The Dozen director Shawn Levy orchestrates the chaos in one of the biggest fantasy adventure hits of this - and any other - century. »

‘Mad Men’s’ Matthew Weiner: ‘Trust Me, I’m Going to Miss It More Than You Will’

1 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The question came up the very first time Matthew Weiner sat before journalists at the Television Critics Assn. tour to promote the July 2007 premiere of “Mad Men.” How will it end? More specifically — how long did he see the time frame of the show running? Would he take the characters through the tumultuous decade of the 1960s? Or would Don Draper and Co. stay in the skinny ties and bouffant hairdos of the show’s 1960 beginnings?

Weiner deflected the question with a pragmatic answer that he hoped would hide how much it had caught him off guard.

“I said I didn’t know if there was going to be a second season — at that time we were only shooting the second episode,” Weiner recalls. “But I realized at that point that there is an expectation that I have a plan for this thing all the way to the end.”

Watch: Captain America: The Winter Soldier Directors Discuss All The Movies That Influenced Marvel's Latest

31 March 2014 8:07 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Looking at the filmographies of filmmakers Joe and Anthony Russo you wouldn.t necessarily predict that they would be cut out for blockbuster filmmaking. The brothers made their feature debut in 2002 directing the small crime comedy Welcome To Collinwood, followed that up with the 2006 Owen Wilson vehicle You, Me and Dupree, and spent the time in-between and since working on various critically-acclaimed television shows like Community and Arrested Development. They had us all scratching our heads when they were hired by Marvel Studios back in 2012 to make Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but the reality is that they have pulled off something spectacular. The brand new Marvel Studios film is heading to theaters this Friday, but it was a couple weeks back that I had the chance to sit down with the Russo brothers to discuss their new film. As you can see in the video above, we touched on »

Pharrell Williams and Jane Fonda may seem like improbable BFFs, but the pair hit it off at an event in Los Angeles on Saturday, laughing and talking like they had known each other for years. At the 35th anniversary gala for the Museum of Contemporary Art (Moca), Williams and Fonda were seated next to each other (with William's wife Helen Lasichanh and, of course, his favorite hat) and appeared to thoroughly enjoy one another's company. The unlikely duo chatted and giggled together for the majority of the evening as if they were old friends, and at times, Williams had one »

Inherent Vice Will Stray From Pynchon’s Novel, Says Josh Brolin

29 March 2014 5:53 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It is hard to think of a filmmaker today whose work is as excitingly original as Paul Thomas Anderson’s. For the second time in his career, the director is adapting an ambitious work of fiction: Thomas Pynchon’s dark mystery Inherent Vice. However, similar to how the writer/director used Upton Sinclair’s Oil as a loose foundation for There Will Be Blood, Inherent Vice will stray quite a bit from its source material, according to star Josh Brolin.

In a chat with Ireland’s Independent, Brolin revealed that the film is quite different from the novel. “We took it I think in a direction that the book doesn’t necessarily go, hoping it will work,” he said. Pynchon’s novel received a mixed critical reception when it came out in 2009, with some citing is a failed attempt to merge the tropes and atmosphere of pulp fiction with the »

Exclusive: Listen To 4 Concierge Character Playlists From Wes Anderson's 'The Grand Budapest Hotel'

28 March 2014 8:44 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While Ralph Fiennes' M. Gustave leads the way in Wes Anderson's utterly delightful "The Grand Budapest Hotel" as the concierge against which all others are measured, one of the many pleasures of the movie is discovering that he's not alone in ensuring the highest standards of his profession are met. As M. Gustave untangles himself from a conspiracy involving murder and a prized artwork, he has to call upon his colleagues—part of The Society Of The Crossed Keys—for their assistance. With those associates played by the likes of Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman and Owen Wilson, it makes for some truly good fun in an already screwball journey. If you're looking for a little more flavor to those characters, today we have an exclusive which opens up a bit more to their varying personalities. Randall Poster has put together Spotify playlists for Gustave H., M. Ivan, M. »

The Grand Budapest Hotel, Wes Anderson’s eighth feature film and one of his best, chronicles the bittersweet adventures of Gustave H (Ralph Fiennes), a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel in a fictional country between wars, and Zero Moustafa (Tony Revolori), the lobby boy who became his loyal and devoted friend.  A timeless tale of friendship and honor as well as a kinetic caper in constant motion, the film features an impressive ensemble cast that includes F. Murray Abraham, Mathieu Amalric, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Jason Schartzman, Tilda Swinton, Tom Wilkinson and Owen Wilson.

You, Me and Dupree

When Carl (Matt Dillon) and Molly (Kate Hudson) vowed to be together for better and for worse, they weren't banking on their best man Dupree (Owen Wilson) becoming their houseguest. The honeymoon is well and truly over for the newlyweds as Wilson hones his lovable slacker routine in a breezy, three's-a-crowd comedy which is effectively the sequel to Wedding Crashers. Michael Douglas makes a sleazy impression as Carl's father-in-law. »

Wedding Crashers

Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson spark off one another magnificently in this hit comedy about a couple of sneaky divorce lawyers who gatecrash weddings to score the bridesmaids. But their scheme goes off the rails when they run into the daughters (sweet Rachel McAdams and sex-mad Isla Fisher) of Us treasury secretary Christopher Walken. The sheer energy of the two leads is addictive but hold the confetti; the comedy is a lot less fluffy than your average romcom. »

The Grand Budapest Hotel – The Review

21 March 2014 8:37 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

For Grand Budapest Hotel, Wes Anderson’s reaches into that bag of tricks he always does, piling on the preciousness and eccentricities you’ve come to expect (or dread) from the fussy director but, thanks in part to his terrific script but mostly to a magnificent central character played by Ralph Fiennes, he pulls out his best film yet. Fiennes’ turn as Gustave, a Concierge at an Eastern Europe hotel in the 1930’s, is sure to have ‘em talking at next year’s awards season as will the film itself.

Like Anderson’s last film Moonrise Kingdom, The Grand Budapest Hotel is a nostalgic look at a different era as well as a coming-of-age story. It centers upon the once-grand titular venue, perched on a mountaintop in the imaginary European country of Zubrowka. The story is narrated initially by the author of a book on the hotel (Tom Wilkinson then »

20 Most Rewatchable Movies Of The 21st Century

21 March 2014 4:03 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

Movies can be rewatchable for all kinds of reasons, but the one constant is that they engage; whether that be on an intellectual, emotional or awesome car chase level, there needs to be something that keeps bringing the viewer back. These films are often different, then, to what’s considered ‘quality’ cinema in the eyes of awards bodies and the like. You wouldn’t watch 12 Years a Slave or There Will be Blood on repeat, even though they are exceptional pictures.

Rewatchable movies, on the other hand, have something to see you returning for more – they can be feel good films to help to keep your mood up, complex mysteries requiring your intense investigation, comedies that only get funnier with every watch, or simply damn entertaining genre pictures with stories well told.

There have already been thousands of movies released in the 14 years of this new millennium; here, »
