"...aspiring female rock star 'Jude' (Heard) is stuck in a rut - relegated to recording commercial jingles and lost in a series of one night stands.

"When she is evicted from her Brooklyn apartment, she is forced to move into the Hamptons home of her wealthy - and selfish - father 'Paul Lombard' (Walken), an over-the-hill, 'Sinatra'-esque crooner angling for a musical comeback.

"As the two reunite, Jude is forced to confront her problems, including troubled relationships with her father...

"...and overachieving sister (Garner), as well as her wobbly career and faltering love life.

"As Jude and Paul butt heads, they unexpectedly find themselves on a journey that may redefine their lives..."

DVD Review – The Big Short (2015)

24 May 2016 3:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Big Short, 2015.

Directed by Adam McKay.

Starring Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Brad Pitt, Finn Wittrock, Max Greenfield, Melissa Leo, Rafe Spall, Hamish Linklater, Tracy Letts, John Magaro, Jeremy Strong, Marissa Tomei, Karen Gillan, Stanley Wong, Byron Mann, Margot Robbie, and Selena Gomez.

Synopsis:

Four denizens of the world of high-finance predict the credit and housing bubble collapse of the mid-2000’s, and decide to take on the big banks for their greed and lack of foresight.

There’s a moment a few minutes into The Big Short where, after you’ve been bombarded with the ins and outs of mortgage backed securities and sub-prime loans, you are watching Margot Robbie in a bubble bath and drinking champagne, explain in layman’s terms, Us mortgage bonds. Strangely, this isn’t an attempt to bamboozle you further, or to join in with the banks’ deliberate obfuscation of ‘high finance »

Exclusive photos: Fran Kranz in new adaptation of Shakespeare’s ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’

20 May 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Hollywood, the Dream Factory, is the apt setting for the latest cinematic update on William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Fran Kranz, Hamish Linklater, Lily Rabe, and Rachael Leigh Cook are among the cast in the new Midsummer adaptation. HitFix has an exclusive early look at the film. The new vision of one of the Bard’s greatest comedies is set in present-day Hollywood, a place where glamorous stars, commanding moguls, starving artists, and vaulting pretenders all vie to get ahead. The Athenians are Hollywood glitterati, the mechanicals (Bottom and his troupe of wannabe actors) are film students, and the fairies of the forest are hippies in Topanga Canyon, nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains just east of Malibu. Staging or filming a Shakespeare project four centuries after the incomparable playwright lived and after countless artists have already mounted productions of his plays poses several challenges. (Yes, really four centuries, »

[Review] One More Time

7 April 2016 7:22 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

There’s a bothersome element to films about fictional musicians: the quality of the original songs, and the suspension of disbelief required – scratch that, demanded – to buy them as listenable. In the 2010 comedy Get Him to the Greek, it’s impossible to believe that Jonah Hill’s record company rep, a guy whose tastes run from iconic punk to Mars Volta, would ever jam to the hokey, generic drivel produced by Russell Brand’s fading rocker. Then there’s the notorious “Sugar High” finale in Empire Records, the Led Zeppelin knock-offs by the Almost Famous band Stillwater, and Ethan Hawke’s awful grunge snarling in Reality Bites. (Is it me, or was this sin disproportionately committed in the 1990s?)

Added to the roster is One More Time, a dramedy about a struggling New York singer/songwriter, Jude (née Starshadow) Lipman (Amber Heard), who decides to freeload at the estate of »

One More Time Movie Review 2

Title: One More Time Director: Robert Edwards Starring: Christopher WalkenAmber Heard, Kelli Garner, Hamish Linklater, Oliver Platt, Ann Magnuson. ‘One More Time’ gathers a terrific cast to stage the story of a musician’s incongruence betwixt his romantic repertoire and his tumultuous private affairs. A rather familiar tune that does not surprise or entertain. Jude (Amber Heard) is an aspiring rock star who is at crossroads in her life, with no clear path to take. She is relegated to recording commercial jingles and distracts herself with one night stands. When she is evicted from her Brooklyn apartment, she is forced to move into the Hamptons home of her wealthy and  [ Read More ]

One More Time Movie Review

Title: One More Time Director: Robert Edwards Starring: Christopher Walken, Amber Heard, Kelli Garner, Hamish Linklater, Ann Magnuson and Oliver Platt People who lead the most seemingly charmed and privileged lives, and have the potential to easily thrive on the endless opportunities that are conveniently presented to them, can often times lead the most troubling and unfulfilled lives. They can squander even the most appealing and favorable chance because they feel undeserving of love and success, after not receiving much emotional encouragement throughout their lives. That’s certainly the case with the professedly privileged young protagonist and her once successful father, who are both so eager to make their mark on  [ Read More ]

Christopher Walken Launches a Musical Comeback in Trailer For ‘One More Time’

14 March 2016 8:13 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Sorry, but Christopher Walken isn’t leading a Daft Punk biopic. Rather, One More Time (previously titled When I Live My Life Over Again) is indeed music-related, but instead of Walken donning any sort of robot helmet, the film follows his character as an aging crooner who is attempting to launch a comeback in the industry, recently reunited with his daughter, played by Amber Heard. Directed by Robert Edwards, we now have the first trailer and poster ahead of a release next month.

In their review out of Tribeca last year,  THR noted, “Walken is the main attraction here; though the film identifies more with the wayward daughter, played by Amber Heard, it doesn’t make her nearly as interesting as his name-dropping, spotlight-hogging entertainer. The actor’s fans, who get too few chances to see him in this kind of role, should ensure that the likeable but underwhelming pic »

“Spotlight” takes the top prize from SAG to stay alive in the Oscar race

1 February 2016 10:35 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Over the weekend, the Screen Actors Guild Awards (or SAG, for those who don’t know) did their best provide both questions and answers in regards to the Oscar race. On the one hand, much of what we suspected to the the Academy’s likely favorites remains as such, but on the other…there are certainly some potential upsets brewing. SAG was just one of the precursors over the weekend, as the Art Directors Guild and Ace Eddie announced their winners as well, which you can see below, but the SAG victors are what we’ll be focusing on today. So, let’s chat about that guild’s results! SAG managed to both clear up and confuse on Saturday. Basically, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Brie Larson wrapped up their Oscar wins in Lead Acting categories, while Alicia Vikander likely became an unbeatable frontrunner as well in Best Supporting Actress. As for Best Supporting Actor, »

TV Land has given a pilot order to “Nobodies,” the project exec produced by Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone that centers on what it’s like to be the friends of more-established Hollywood names.

Originally titled “Friends With Melissa,” the project is starring, exec produced and written by fellow Groundlings alums Hugh Davidson, Larry Dorf and Rachel Ramras (“Mike Tyson Mysteries”). Inspired by their real life, the trio will play themselves — struggling creatives who are trying desperately to land one of their famous friends for a feature script that they’ve developed so that they, too, can rise to fame in Hollywood.

McCarthy and Falcone are exec producing through their On the Day shingle. He is directing and will appear in the pilot. Should the pilot go to series, she will appear in future episodes.
