Winner Bisset vs. the Globes' Buzz-Off Orchestra

Jacqueline Bisset vs. the Golden Globes 2014 get-lost orchestra NBC or whoever organized the Golden Globes 2014 ceremony sat Jacqueline Bisset way in the back of the awards ceremony ballroom. Never mind the fact that Bisset’s film career began nearly half a century ago and that she was a Golden Globe nominee in the Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Mini-Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television category for the mini-series Dancing on the Edge. As a result, it took Bisset, who seemed about as surprised as everybody else when her named was called up, more than a minute to reach the stage. (Photo: Jacqueline Bisset accepts her Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Mini-Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television © HFPA.) Visibly moved, Bisset had to wait a few more seconds before she was able to talk. By the time she began with her somewhat rambling acceptance speech,

Gay Love Story Weekend Tops North American Per-Theater Average: Box Office

Tom Cullen and Chris New spend the weekend together in Andrew Haigh's Weekend Writer-director Andrew Haigh's gay love story Weekend scored the highest per-theater average this weekend (Sept. 23-25) at the North American box office according to Box Office Mojo. Screening at one New York City theater, the Sundance Selects-distributed Weekend — which, by the way, has nothing to do with Jean-Luc Godard's 1967 film of the same name — grossed an estimated $25,200. For the mathematically challenged: $25,200 at one theater equals a $25,200 per-theater average. Featuring Tom Cullen and Chris New as two gay men who during a seemingly long weekend discover that a one-night stand has metamorphosed into something more profound, the British-made Weekend has been greeted by overwhelmingly positive reviews. Haigh's movie, in fact, has a 96% approval rating among Rotten Tomatoes' critics, with Salon's Andrew O'Hehir calling it "one of the bravest, most honest and most accomplished stories of

The country music-themed cable network has established Cmt Original Movies, a new division that will produce TV movies for the network with a focus on romantic comedies and music-based films.

Have a question about gay male entertainment? Send it to aftereltonflyingmonkey@yahoo.com! (Please include your city and state and/or country.)

A Note from the Flying Monkey: Of the many emails I receive every week for my column, some are so good that they simply can’t be answered in just a few words. So from time to time, the editors have decided to let me out of the “cage” of that regular column, in a feature we’re calling Monkey Uncaged!

Q: What, in your opinion, is the worst gay film ever made? Why? – A.R.

A: A couple of months ago, I wrote a list of what I considered to be the ten most “important” gay male films – not what I felt were the “best,” mind you, but the ones that I felt had had the most impact either on the Glbt community or society at large.

Blu-Ray Review: Romantic Comedy Stars Can’t Save ‘New in Town’

Chicago – Renee Zellweger and Harry Connick Jr.’s “New in Town,” now on DVD and Blu-Ray, was a massive bomb in theaters, opening in 8th place and grossing only $17 million, less than any widely-released Zellweger film in her entire career.

Blu-Ray Rating: 2.5/5.0 I only mention this because so few people have seen the film that they may be drawn to it at Blockbuster or in their Netflix queue. “New in Town” isn’t nearly as painful as I expected it to be but the horrendous script sink all the best efforts of the reasonably charming Renee and always-good Harry.

New in Town was released on Blu-Ray on May 26th, 2009.

Photo credit: Lionsgate

On paper, “New in Town” sounds promising. Zellweger plays Lucy Hill, a tough-as-nails executive who takes on an assignment at a manufacturing plant in Minnesota. Transplanted from the sunny beaches of Miami to the frozen tundra of the great North,

Jonas Elmer tried to direct a hit comedy in which two worlds collide. But with New in Town, he merely bangs cliches together like a pair of irritatingly loud cymbals.

Best. Gay. Week. Ever. (January 30, 2009)

I’ve been thinking about sexuality a lot lately, which is different than thinking about sex, but not by much.

Why are most men the way they are about sex — and so different from most women? Are gay men different from straight men? And what does the internet have to do with it?

Interesting questions, no? Even if they're not, the subject of "Male Sexuality" gives me an excuse to write about sex in this week’s edition of the Best.Gay.Week.Ever!

How Sexual Are You?

In order to get in the mood, let’s begin with a brief quiz, shall we? (Fyi, the quiz program won't let me use "dirty" words — words like "sex".)

Male Sexuality Is A Beautiful Thing

Film: Review: New In Town

The past few months have given us Kate Hudson as a domineering legal barracuda with power bangs (Bride Wars), Meg Ryan as a hard-charging, cynical movie executive (The Deal on DVD), and now adorable Renée Zellweger as a ruthlessly ambitious junior achiever coldly maneuvering her way up the corporate ladder in the perfectly mediocre new comedy-drama New In Town. Carol Kane may achieve her life's dream of playing Leni Riefenstahl yet. Co-written by Sweet Home Alabama's C. Jay Cox, New In Town grinds its plucky protagonist through a predictable arc from dispassionate big-city ice queen to redeemed ...

"New in Town" Movie Review -- How Many Kisses Does Renee Zelwegger Get?

The wintry New Ulm, Minnesota is the setting of the film .New in Town.. But this supposed warm romantic comedy left me cold like its arctic backdrop.

Renee Zelwegger stars as Lucy Hill, an ambitious female executive based in Miami. She.s trying desperately to climb the corporate ladder so when the opportunity arrives for her to ascend, she gladly takes it.

But that opportunity will make Lucy move from the warm Miami to the blistery cold New Ulm. What.s a tropical girl to do?

Written by Kenneth Rance and C. Jay Cox, the script is so steeped with Minnesota clichés that I felt bad for its inhabitants. All the residents talk like Frances McDormand.s character, Marge Gunderson, in .Fargo..

Incidentally, Lucy.s assistant in the film is named Blanche Gunderson (Siobhan Fallon Hogan). Is this the filmmakers. homage to the far better .Fargo?

Three distinct genres try their luck. After debuting earlier this year in France, 20th Century Fox finally releases the eagerly anticipated crime actioner "Taken" on January 30th. The intense film is helmed by Pierre Morel, known for the indie gem "District B13" and helmer of the upcoming "From Paris with Love" starring John Travolta and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. "Taken" stars Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace, Famke Janssen and Jon Gries and is written by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen. What's it about? “I don’t know you who you are. I don’t know what you want.
