Pierce Brosnan Proves Chivalry Isn't Dead While Vacationing in Italy With His Wife

20 June 2017 10:45 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Pierce Brosnan and wife Keely Smith are currently enjoying a romantic vacation in Italy, and on Tuesday, the longtime couple was photographed relaxing on a yacht. The pair - who will be celebrating 16 years of marriage in August - made the most of their time out at sea as they went for a swim in the ocean, and Pierce even took a few dives into the crystal blue water, reminding us of his James Bond days. The actor also put his chivalrous ways on display as he helped his wife towel off on the beach and assisted her onto an inflatable boat.

Relive the Exact Moment Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth First Fell in Love

23 May 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It's been seven years since the release of Disney's The Last Song, but now that Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus have rekindled their romance, it's only fitting that we take a walk down memory lane with their cutest photos from the film. The Nicholas Sparks movie marked Cyrus's first role outside of Hannah Montana and follows rebellious teen Ronnie (Cyrus) who comes to live with her divorced father (Greg Kinnear) for the Summer. Her dad uses their shared love of music to reconnect with her, but Ronnie ends up finding romance with the local heartthrob Will (Hemsworth). It may not have taken place in Malibu, but it is where all the magic first happened. RelatedThese Cute Photos of Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth Will Slap a Smile on Your Face »

Film Review: ‘Everything, Everything’ Offers Close to Nothing, Nothing

21 May 2017 5:31 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – I’ll be the first to admit that I am not the target audience for these stock young adult romance novels. Aside from the odd fascination and romanticization of teenage death and terminal illness, these stories feel trite and much closer to fantasy than anything real or plausible. This is what the film “Everything, Everything” brings to the table, which essentially translates to Nothing, Nothing.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

I am patient and empathetic. I always try to understand another person’s point of view or outlook especially when it doesn’t mirror my own. Going into every film with an open mind is the only way to truly open yourself to the experience it is trying to impart. I didn’t know anything when going into “Everything, Everything” but it soon became clear that I actually knew exactly how the story was going to progress after the first ten minutes. This »

Review: ‘Everything, Everything’ Crashes Under Its Own Self-Seriousness

18 May 2017 8:43 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Perhaps there’s nothing worse than a film with a campy premise that takes itself too seriously. Everything, Everything takes it title from a spoiler alert its lead character Maddy Whittier (Amandla Stenberg) leaves on her blog as she reviews Flowers for Algernon, another story about a chronically ill character (“Love is Everything. Everything”). This is a dull, illogical, yet sincere and well-meaning drama. Sadly, its core audience should demand more from their entertainment.

The sophomore effort from director Stella Meghie — whose debut feature, the delightful family comedy Jean of the Joneses, enjoyed a healthy life on the festival circuit last year and a well-deserved Spirit Award nomination — Everything, Everything crashes by taking itself way too seriously as it chronicles the young love of homebound Maddy and the boy next door Olly Bright (Nick Robinson). Diagnosed early in life by her physician mother Pauline (Anika Noni Rose) with a case »

Miley Cyrus' Transformation Timeline: From Disney Star to Infamous Twerker to Fresh-Faced 'Malibu'

12 May 2017 5:12 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

She came in like a "Wrecking Ball."

In the video for Miley Cyrus' best performing single to date, the pop star swings nakedly and wildly around on the giant demolishing tool, before taking a sledge hammer to the cinder block walls that surround her. And as we've seen in the 24-year-old singer's over a decade of pop culture prominence, that might be the perfect metaphor for how Miley approaches her ever-changing persona.

Miley doesn't do small. When the Disney starlet-turned-Grammy nominee makes a change, she tears the whole thing down and starts again... naked.

As we've seen in the backlash to her recent Billboard cover story (more on that later), these shifts are not always smooth, and are often accompanied by a fair amount of controversy. But what they also bring is an almost time capsule-like tableau from which we can track the different manifestations »

Harry Styles, Decoded

12 May 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Harry Styles‘ debut self-titled album is officially out — and we have a lot of questions.

Interviews leading up to the release of Harry Styles teased just enough to make us very, very curious about the One Direction singer’s solo effort. We have a lot more listens to go before we have all — or at least more — of the answers, but in the meantime, here is what we’ve deduced.

Any nods to Taylor Swift?

When Apple Music released the first teaser trailer for Styles’s Behind the Album documentary, fans did their due diligence and combed the video for clues. »

Review: ‘Below Her Mouth’ is an Exhilarating, Erotic Tour de Force

27 April 2017 4:31 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Destined to be one of the year’s most provocative releases, April Mullen’s Below Her Mouth is an erotic tour de force of uninhibited filmmaking exploring the nature of intimacy, sexuality, and the female gaze led by two extraordinary performances by Erika Linder and Natalie Krill. Dallas (Linder) is a young roofer making her living in Toronto; early in the film she proves to be emotionally unavailable as she abruptly breaks up with her yuppie girlfriend Joslyn (Mayko Nguyen) and moves out into a studio apartment. While on a job in an upscale neighborhood she encounters Jasmine (Krill), a young fashion editor that’s about to be engaged to Rile (Sebastain Pigott), who by all measures seems to be a decent man, invested in their relationship even if he’s unable to offer the kind of connection and emotional support she longs for.

Here’s Why ‘Unforgettable’ Director Denise Di Novi Will Be the Woman Who Gets Another Shot

24 April 2017 9:47 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

This weekend, veteran producer Denise Di Novi saw her directorial debut, Warner Bros.’ “Unforgettable,” make an underwhelming box-office debut with an estimated $4.8 million for the weekend. For most women, that would be the kiss of death: Very few women get the chance to direct studio films, and underperformance means there won’t be an encore. That won’t be the case for Di Novi.

Di Novi is like very few women in Hollywood. She’s an unapologetic product of the studios: After 20 years, she still has a rare overall deal at Warner Bros, where she was Tim Burton’s longtime producer (“Edward Scissorhands,” “Ed Wood,” “Nightmare Before Christmas,” his “Batman” films) as well as the shepherd to romantic hits like “Nights of Rodanthe” and Nicholas Sparks’ “A Night to Remember.” And, »

Blake Lively on Women in Hollywood, Directing and Possible ‘Gossip Girl’ Reunion

20 April 2017 4:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As one of Variety’s Power of Women honorees, Blake Lively will attend a lunch on Friday in support of Child Rescue Coalition. For this week’s issue, the actress spoke about women in Hollywood, shooting in New York for “Gossip Girl,” and what she looks for in a role.

There’s been a national conversation recently about gender disparity in Hollywood. Have you experienced that?

Yeah, I’ve felt that. It’s hard to complain when there are women who are being sex trafficked, women being treated as objects and product. Yes, it’s important to have that conversation, because equality is equality. I feel fortunate. It’s still to far from what it should be for women in 2017.

It’s important to remember that half the audience of ticket buyers are female. Are you interested in doing tentpoles?

I don’t look at movies by the budget. I »

A Transformed Richard Gere Finds Indie Is The Way To Go In Two New Films

17 April 2017 2:35 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

By my count it has been almost a decade since Richard Gere last toplined a conventional major studio film — 2008’s Nicholas Sparks romantic drama Nights In Rodanthe from Warner Bros. His last huge hit was 2002’s Oscar-winning musical Chicago, which brought him a Golden Globe but failed to put him in the Best Actor Oscar race, something that has unfairly eluded him his entire career. But the star of such hits as Pretty Woman, An Officer And A Gentleman, Primal Fear, America… »

Movie Review: Freaky Friday meets Nicholas Sparks in the record-breaking anime Your Name

4 April 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Already the fourth-highest-grossing film ever in its home country of Japan (trailing Spirited Away, Titanic, and Frozen), the anime romance Your Name boasts a fate-driven appeal that’ll be quite familiar to Americans who love Nicholas Sparks novels and their onscreen adaptations. Initially, the story appears to be a basic Freaky Friday-style body swap, albeit with a slight twist: The people involved don’t know each other at all. One day, Tokyo teenager Taki (voice of Ryûnosuke Kamiki) mysteriously awakens to find his consciousness inhabiting a girl of roughly the same age, Mitsuha (Mone Kamishiraishi), who lives in a rural area some 200 miles away. He spends a confused day struggling to maintain this stranger’s routine, unaware that Mitsuha is making the same effort in his own body. The next day, everything’s back to normal, but the switch keeps happening, seemingly at random. Eventually, they start communicating »

A Cure for Wellness: Jason Isaacs on His Enigmatic Role

16 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

One would think having played Captain Hook in Peter Pan, Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies and voicing DC villains like Sinestro and Ra's Al Ghul in animated films--as well as a couple more authoritarian figures in Star Wars: Rebels--would have gotten any desire to be evil out of actor Jason Isaacs’ system.

And yet, he’s playing a more enigmatic character in director Gore Verbinski’s twisted new thriller A Cure for Wellness, which follows Dane DeHaan as a financial broker named Lockhard to Switzerland to retrieve the CEO of his company who is thought to have lost his marble in search of a cure at a spa located at an old castle in the Alps. Once there, Lockhard breaks his leg in a car accident, and he’s put under the care of Isaacs’ Dr. Vollmar, creator of the cure based around the area’s underground waters and their healing properties. »

The Weekend Warrior 2/17/17: Fist Fight, The Great Wall, A Cure for Wellness

15 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.  

This Past Weekend:

The Lego Batman Movie won the weekend as expected, but not with nearly as much money as I had predicted, not besting the opening of The Lego Movie as expected, but instead ending up with a reasonable and not so bad $53 million.  Fifty Shades Darker proved that the audience for movies based on the popular books was still great enough for it to win Friday with $21 million (to Lego Batman’s $15 million) and end up second for the weekend with a strong $46.6 million. That was still almost $40 million less than the opening of the previous movie Fifty Shades of Grey, but the sequel also didn’t have the benefits of Valentine’s Day and a four-day holiday.

The Space Between Us review

13 February 2017 9:19 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Asa Butterfield and Britt Robertson star in new sci-fi romance, The Space Between Us. Here's our review...

Asa Butterfield and Britt Robertson play star-crossed lovers in The Space Between Us, a sci-fi romance which, shockingly, is not an adaptation of a novel by Nicholas Sparks or Stephenie Meyer. It's still full of the sort of contrivances that usually get explained away by some well-read fan as being faithful to the source material, but it comes from an original screenplay. However, when you realise that the screenplay was written by Allan Loeb, author of last year's feel-bad turkey Collateral Beauty, you might start to understand why it's utter nonsense.

In the not-too-distant future, 16-year-old Gardner Elliot (Butterfield) is the first human born on Mars. Raised by scientists and kept secret from the people of Earth by aerospace CEO Nathaniel Shepard (Gary Oldman), Gardner rails against his sheltered life and longs to »

Fifty Shades Darker Review

9 February 2017 12:20 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Oh, Fifty Shades Darker. It’s impossible to fantasize about what could have been. Foundations for an erotic trashterpiece are laid, but director James Foley doesn’t understand camp sensibilities. With someone like Rob Cohen in charge (The Boy Next Door, anyone?), all those flatlining dramatics and misplaced jokes would gel together. Fluid sensuality with spanking, oils and cuffs, dictated by a sadist who gets off on punishing mommy lookalikes (hawt). Instead, Foley’s tonal jerkiness kills the mood like an awkward boner, shocking this dominating system with unexpected diversions.

Oh, but this is the relationshippy Fifty Shades entry. Right. Christian Grey (A Bucket Of Dry Cement Jamie Dornan) cannot live another day with Anastasia (Dakota Johnson), so he opens contract negotiations. No punishments, no rules, and no secrets. Ana doesn’t take much convincing, and their relationship blossoms under the new respectful boundaries. Sexual desires become less whippy, but something still isn’t right. »

New to Streaming: ‘The Handmaiden,’ ‘Loving,’ ‘The Light Between Oceans,’ and More

27 January 2017 9:40 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

American Pastoral (Ewan McGregor)

If my limited experience with Philip Roth adaptations is any indication, his novels deal in emotion. There are existential crises concerning identity involved, each a character study about life’s impact beyond the surface experiences propelling them forward. This isn’t something easily translated from page to screen when so much consists of internalized motivation. You must really look into the text, ignoring plot to »
