'Girls' star's Kickstarter fail: Zosia Mamet and sister Clara fall far short of goal

  • Pop2it
"Girls" star Zosia Mamet and her sister, "The Neighbors" star Clara Mamet, formed a band called The Cabin Sisters and tried to raise money via Kickstarter to make their first music video. They failed.

It's the latest celebrity black eye in the brave new world of Kickstarter, which successfully funded an upcoming "Veronica Mars" movie far beyond expectations and also raised a whole lotta dough for Zach Braff to make a follow-up to "Garden State."

Both the "Mars" project and especially the Braff movie drew controversy for asking fans to contribute money to a project without the prospect of any financial compensation in return. Instead, fans receive a few perks and the knowledge they've helped support something they believe in. It's kind of like PBS' pledge drives, and if people want to hand over their money, well ... that's their right.

Because there's also a downside for celebrities hoping to cash

TV Review: David Mamet’s ‘Phil Spector’ with Al Pacino, Helen Mirren

Chicago – With the larger-than-life acting tics that have invaded most of Al Pacino’s performances in the last twenty years, it seemed inevitable that the actor was the only person who could possibly play a notable loon like Phil Spector. In tonight’s HBO movie named after the legendary producer, Pacino chews the scenery as one would expect but it’s Helen Mirren who steals the piece from the Oscar winner. Both actors are great and Mamet’s gift with dialogue remains intact but the plotting and choice of storytelling in “Phil Spector” makes for a final product that doesn’t make enough of a statement or tell us much about its title subject.

Television Rating: 3.0/5.0

The first scene of “Phil Spector” is the best. Linda Kenney Baden (Helen Mirren) joins the defense team of the volatile producer in his first trial for the murder of Lana Clarkson. As she

Al Pacino is Phil Spector in new HBO movie -- Video
It’s one of the most famous cases in Hollywood history: Music producer Phil Spector was accused of the second-degree murder of Lana Clarkson in 2003. After a 2007 hung jury, he was found guilty in 2009 and is currently in prison. Now, the true story is coming to HBO with an all-star cast. An incredibly-similar-looking Al Pacino tackles the title role of Spector, and Helen Mirren plays his attorney, Linda Kenney Baden.

Written and directed by David Mamet, the HBO Films production focuses on his first trial and the relationship between Spector and Baden (who was one of many attorneys he went

Eight Counts of Grand Theft Cinema

  • SoundOnSight
We love crime movies. We may go on and on about Scorsese’s ability to incorporate Italian neo-realism techniques into Mean Streets (1973), the place of John Huston’s The Asphalt Jungle (1950) in the canon of postwar noir, The Godfather (1972) as a socio-cultural commentary on the distortion of the ideals of the American dream blah blah blah, yadda yadda yadda…but that ain’t it.

We love crime movies because we love watching a guy who doesn’t have to behave, who doesn’t have to – nor care to – put a choker on his id and can let his darkest, most visceral impulses run wild. Some smart-mouth gopher tells hood Tommy DeVito (Joe Pesci), “Go fuck yourself,” in Scorsese’s Goodfellas (1990), and does Tommy roll with it? Does he spit back, “Fuck me? Nah, fuck you!” Does he go home and tell his mother?

Nope.

After 'The Artist': Berenice Bejo Talks Michel Hazanavicius' 'The Search,' Jean Dujardin To Star With Tim Roth In 'Mobius'

  • The Playlist
As Harvey Weinstein crawls on hands and knees up the Croisette, searching desperately for the next film to equal the success of last year’s golden child, “The Artist,” it can be hard to recall just how unique and singular the film seemed when first shown at Cannes, before its subsequent release and obnoxious awards season buzz. The plain fact is, director Michel Hazanavicius & Co. made a tremendous film, and today news has sprung up that the cast and crew will continue to pursue interesting projects, ones that find them in a distinctly different environment than before.

Jean Dujardin’s dazzling smile and comic chops largely dominated “Artist” discussion, but really it was actress Berenice Bejo who truly grounded the film with an emotional center, oftentimes playing the straight performer but owning some fine comic moments herself. She then broke men’s hearts everywhere with news that she was married to Hazanavicius,

The Benshi From Hell: Val Kilmer’s Musings on "Spartan"

  • MUBI
Spartan (David Mamet, 2004) was quite near the beginning of the artistic sequence that Mamet scholars would eventually call his "early crypto-fascist period"—certainly a good dozen years before his bizarre, Kaufmanesque wrestling matches with Tariq Ramadan, complete with veiled ringside girls, on Al-Jazeera.  About the film itself, critics were brutal. One of them called it "unimaginably crude – the Pickup on South Street (1) of the so-called War on Terror." Another said, "watching this film makes me want to commit innocent but suspicious acts deserving of a good waterboarding in Guantanamo." Despite the down-beat & cryptic patriotism of the film, it was not a success. Warner Brothers, sifting through the testing data, eventually fingered its too mild anti-Arabian racism. Mamet was forced to move the idea to television where he re-conceived the material for the series The Unit, primarily, the cynics said, as a way to get singing gigs for his wife, Scottish folkstress Rebecca Pidgeon.

Willie Nelson talks Farm Aid: 'We're still in a desperate situation with our farmers'

  • Pop2it
Saturday (Aug. 13), country legend Willie Nelson and a host of other artists will take to the stage in Kansas City, Ks at the Livestrong Sporting Park to put on Farm Aid, the longest running benefit concert series in America. It has raised over $39 million to help family farmers keep their farms and also teaching millions of people about the Good Food movement.

Farm Aid founder Nelson (pictured above at last year's Farm Aid with Aerosmith's Steven Tyler) tells the Kansas City Star, "We're still in a desperate situation with our farmers and the land and the big corporations taking over farms and ruining the soil with chemicals and pesticides. It's been going on for so long. I think the biggest problem is with politicians who either don't know about it or don't care. At one time there were more than 8 million family farms in this country. We're down to less than 2 million.

DVD Releases: 'Red'

  • CineVue
Action movies are a young man's game. Or they used to be, before Sylvester Stallone resurrected the hard-man genre last summer with his team of middle-aged action heroes in The Expendables (2010). Now there's a fourth Mission: Impossible on the way with Tom Cruise still firmly strapped into the lead role, and even Tony Scott has been talking up the possibility of a Top Gun sequel. Middle-age, it seems, is no longer a barrier to kicking ass.

Robert Schwentke's Red (2010), adapted from British comic book writer Warren Ellis and artist Cull Hamner's graphic novel of the same name, an acronym of “Retired, Extremely Dangerous”, stars Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, and Helen Mirren as retired secret agents now hunted by their former employers for an unknown reason. Willis unwittingly drags the object of his remote affections, the younger Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker) into the chase, which is led by CIA

Red Sweeps Blu-ray and DVD Charts

  • MovieWeb
A group of retired CIA agents stormed the home video charts last week, with Red sweeping the Blu-ray sales, DVD sales and DVD rental charts, for the week ending January 30.

Secretariat took second place on both the DVD and Blu-ray sales charts, and sixth place on the DVD rentals charts. Although Secretariat took second place in DVD sales, it only sold 62% as many units as Red. Secretariat also finished sixth place on the rental charts. Both Red, from Summit Entertainment, and Secretariat, from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment, do not apply the 28-day waiting period on both Netflix and Redbox like several studios do.

Saw: The Final Chapter was the only other notable new release, finishing in third place on all three charts. Takers, which was last week's top-selling disc, dropped all the way to eighth place in DVD sales in just its second week on the shelves. Takers also

Blu-Ray Review: Deadly Dull ‘Red’ Wastes A-List Cast

  • HollywoodChicago.com
Chicago – After 2010, the Golden Globes should officially retire the category of “Best Musical or Comedy” for two reasons: 1. A staggeringly small percentage of American films annually fall under the category of “musical,” and 2. This year’s nominees were so embarrassingly awful that they instantly drained the category of any future credibility.

With the obvious exception of the family drama “The Kids Are All Right,” none of the nominated pictures were the least bit deserving of a Best Picture nod. Yet unlike “The Tourist,” “Burlesque” and (arguably) “Alice in Wonderland,” “Red” is the only nominee destined to spawn an ill-advised franchise. A sequel to “Red” would be wholly unnecessary, since the original film could easily function as its own sequel, remake and TV spin-off.

Blu-Ray Rating: 1.5/5.0

Why? Because this 111-minute exercise in excess is built around exactly one joke: old geezers love firing guns. This premise stopped being funny around the
