All Time Greatest Movies About Money

29 September 2016 11:14 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Whilst romantic comedies are everywhere, sometimes all you really want to see is a movie about cold, hard cash. Thankfully, quite a few of them have been made. Films about the pursuit of wealth have cropped up steadily over the years, beginning as early as 1924. Our aim is to point you in the direction of the best of the bunch.

If we’re completely honest, the pursuit of wealth is something that most of us are familiar with. It’s why casinos and betting have always been so popular, aside from the obvious thrill, that is. A desire to boost funds is why so many people head to Vegas or paypal-casinos.co. The drive for wealth makes for some fantastic stories that try to create a conversation about man’s relationship with money. Many of them focus on the high-stakes life of a Wall Street trader. Those listed below are the most successful, »

26 September 2016 3:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ed Oxenbould has landed the role of Jake Gyllenhaal and Carey Mulligan’s son in Paul Dano’s directorial debut, “Wildlife,” sources tell Variety.

‘Cafe Society’ Review

22 September 2016 10:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jesse EisenbergKristen Stewart, Steve Carell, Corey Stoll, Ken Stott, Sheryl Lee | Written and Directed by Woody Allen

Woody Allen is the kind of director that has cemented a style that is his very own. When the opening music begins to play and the letters appear on the screen you know that you’re about to watch a Woody Allen film. Café Society, Woody’s latest, begins in much the same way as his other cinematic offerings, and the familiar territory almost feels comforting.

Café Society has a cast of both Woody Allen alumni and first-timers, and it’s a good one. Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart reconnect after appearing together in Adventureland and American Ultra. Steve Carell (The Office), Corey Stoll (Midnight in Paris) and Ken Stott (The Hobbit) among others grace the screen in a gathering of acting talent that really dive in head-first and do their director proud. »

Jimmy Kimmel Interview: The Emmy Host on Pickle-gate, ‘Stranger Things’ and His Future at ABC

13 September 2016 10:33 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Nearly 14 years after the launch of his late night talk show, a slim and trim Jimmy Kimmel is in the best physical shape of his life. Nonetheless, the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” host admits that these days, he feels a bit more like an “old, grizzled veteran.”

The hosts that Kimmel competed against for more than a decade are now mostly retired. And the late night wars are pretty much a thing of the past, now that most viewers are watching highlight clips the next morning on social media. (How peaceful is it now? Kimmel is even executive producing the ABC game show “Big Fan,” hosted by competitor Conan O’Brien’s sidekick, Andy Richter.)

Of course, Kimmel has felt a bit like that “old, grizzled veteran” since the moment his show launched in 2003. “It was nothing like I expected it would be,” he recently reflected in his Hollywood office, after »

Café Society review

7 September 2016 8:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Published Date  Thursday, September 8, 2016 - 05:15

No one could reasonably expect that Woody Allen's 47th film Café Society would be some enormous trend-breaking statement, somehow pointing the way to the next 47 films. His movies are mixed up in nostalgia and romance and the self-perpetuating critical discussion about each new one, which has come along once every year for at least the last three decades, is of whether or not it's a return to form or evidence of a decline.

His breakthrough hits of the last decade, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Midnight In Paris and Blue Jasmine, are elevated into the former category, but most everything else seems to get dismissed as a cinematic fixture. If you've been a fan or viewer for any length of time, it's a bit like going to the same barber, getting the same annual haircut and hearing the same stories about the same preoccupations and neuroses. »

‘Norman’ Finds Richard Gere in a Coen-Like Comedy With More Chutzpah Than Charm — Telluride Review

5 September 2016 4:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A noble failure from a noteworthy filmmaker,  Joseph Cedar’s “Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer” — the unofficial winner of this year’s “Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)” Award for the most fanciful title — mines a classic storytelling tradition in order to spin a darkly comic parable that often feels as unkempt and intolerable as its title character.

A defiantly Jewish bit of mishegoss that was conceived as a U.S. / Israeli co-production, the film is a wry, self-defeating response to the anti-Semitic tradition of stories about conniving “Court Jews” who talk their way into becoming one of the king’s most trusted advisors. Pin-balling between tragedy and farce so fast that it can be hard to follow, “Norman” unfolds like a Coen brothers comedy that has too much chutzpah and not enough charm.

Café Society review – Woody Allen on nostalgic form

4 September 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Jesse Eisenberg is suitably jittery as the director’s alter ego, but it’s Kristen Stewart’s naturalism that carries the movie

From the reassuring chug of Woody Allen’s trademark trad jazz score to Jesse Eisenberg’s disconcertingly accurate channelling of the director’s jittery introspection, this handsome, nostalgia-sodden romance feels rather familiar. But just when you are about to dismiss the picture as pure cappuccino froth, the bittersweet bite kicks in. It’s not in the same league as Allen’s finest work, but nor is it a honking misfire like Magic in the Moonlight.

Eisenberg plays Bobby Dorfman, the son of a Bronx jeweller who decides to try his luck in Hollywood. His one industry connection, his uncle Phil (Steve Carell), is a high-powered agent who takes a liking to his nephew. It’s through Uncle Phil that Bobby meets Vonnie (Kristen Stewart), Phil’s secretary. Bobby is smitten, »

Second Opinion – Café Society (2016)

3 September 2016 8:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Café Society, 2016.

Written and Directed by Woody Allen.

Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively, Steve Carell, Corey Stoll, Parker Posey, Ken Stott and Jeannie Berlin.

Synopsis:

In the 1930s, a young Bronx native moves to Hollywood where he falls in love with the secretary of his powerful uncle, an agent to the stars. After returning to New York, he is swept up in the vibrant world of high society nightclub life.

Woody Allen is the true great American storyteller. You can criticise and belittle his work all you want, but ultimately he is the single auteur still at work today who is wholly reminiscent of the art’s foundations: originality, creativity and passion. Locate another filmmaker who has written and directed more singular titles (meaning no adaptations, remakes or reboots) than he. You would have to go back as far as the Silent Era.

See Jim Carrey’s (Rejected) ‘SNL’ Auditions

2 September 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

There’s no disputing Jim Carrey’s designation as one of the industry’s most talented comedic actors. From “The Truman Show” to “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and so many more, Carrey has proven himself a bona fide master of physical and emotional storytelling. Producers at “Saturday Night Live” in the early 1980s, however, disagreed. For whatever reason, NBC’s famed weekly sketch show neglected to book Carrey as a regular cast member in its early stages. During the 40th anniversary special of “SNL,” footage was released of several stars who auditioned and were turned away. Among them were Steve Carell, Zach Galifianakis, and Carrey, who came into the audition room more than once, performing bits from his earliest stand-up and impressionist work.

Interview: John Krasinski Turns Toward Family in ‘The Hollars’

1 September 2016 10:01 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Any story involving family interactions is ripe for exploration, and John Krasinski (“The Office”) performs in and takes the director’s chair for the new film, “The Hollars.” This is his second directorial effort, looking at the somewhat dysfunctional title family during a medical crisis involving the mother (Margo Martindale).

John Krasinski is a well known affable guy, mostly for his role as Jim Halpert in the long-running sitcom “The Office.” He was born near Boston, and graduated from Brown University. He’s had a notable film career as well, with supporting roles in “License to Wed” (2007), “Leatherheads” (2008), “Away We Go” (2009), “Something Borrowed” (2011) and “Aloha” (2015). He broke his character mold this year in the Benghazi-inspired “13 Hours,” and now stars in and directs his second feature film, coming after “Brief Interviews with Hideous Men” (2009). He also became part of an official Hollywood “It” couple, with his marriage to actress Emily Blunt »

Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston and Laurence Fishburne join Richard Linklater’s Last Flag Flying

1 September 2016 | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Boyhood and Everybody Wants Some!! helmer Richard Linklater is currently developing his next movie Last Flag Flying, a “sort of” sequel to Hal Ashby’s The Last Detail, and THR is reporting that Steve Carell (Foxcatcher), Bryan Cranston (Trumbo) and Laurence Fishburne (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) are all in talks to appear in the film.

Based on the 2005 novel by Darryl Ponicsan (his follow-up to 1970’s The Last Detail), Last Flag Flying follows the trio of characters from The Last Detail. The original film starred Jack Nicholson and Otis Young as two Navy officers tasked with escorting a young sailor (Randy Quaid) to prison but opt to show him a good time along the way. Linklater’s film will pick up a few decades later, with the sailor now enlisting the aid of his former captors in order to bring home the body of his son, who has been killed in Iraq. »

Film Review: Café Society

31 August 2016 11:30 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ Picked up by Amazon Studios following its world premiere at Cannes, Woody Allen's new comedy Café Society is a polished, amber-coloured sonnet to the Hollywood Golden Age of the 1930s. Jesse Eisenberg plays Bobby, a young New Yorker who tired of his father's jewellery business goes West to find his fortune by the moon shaped pales and beneath the tall palms of the Hollywood hills. Bobby's uncle Phil (a brilliant if underused Steve Carell) is a top agent who can't get through a cocktail without closing three deals and setting up a brunch with a film producer.

Movie Review – Cafe Society (2016)

Cafe Society, 2016.

Written and Directed by Woody Allen.

Synopsis:

Has Woody Allen lost it? An argument that has raged for many years since the turn of the century as to whether one of cinema’s most brilliant and witty minds had lost his mojo with films like Anything Else and You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger splitting fans. Recently though he has embraced change and has been on a good roll recently last year’s Irrational Man proving he still has the touch.

Last Flag Flying Is The Name Of Richard Linklater’s Latest – And It’s Already Cast Three A-Listers

31 August 2016 8:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Buoyed by the remarkable success of Everybody Wants Some!!, director Richard Linklater is remaining firmly in the realm of spiritual successors with his latest creative venture, Last Flag Flying.

It’s already off to a flyer – no pun intended – as The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston and Laurence Fishburne have all opened negotiations to board the long-gestating project, one described as a quasi-sequel to Darryl Ponsican novel The Last Detail

Indeed, news of Last Flag Flying sparking into life has been a long time coming, given the project has been on Linklater’s radar for the better part of a decade. It seems the stars have now aligned, though, after the filmmaker carved out a space on his bustling slate to finally hoist this languishing drama off the ground.

Ordering Carell, Cranston and Fishburne to the high seas, Linklater had initially intended to reunite Jack Nicholson, »
