‘By the Gun’ DVD Review

9 April 2015 2:37 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Tully Banta-Cain, Ben Barnes, Paul Ben-Victor, William Bloomfield, Bonnie Belle Skinner, Ritchie Coster, Damien Di Paola, Armen Garo, Jay Giannone, Toby Jones, Harvey Keitel, Leighton Meester | Written by Emilio Mauro | Directed by James Mottern

You know, Martin Scorsese has a lot to answer for. Years after the likes of Mean Streets, Goodfellas and Casino, budding filmmakers are still churning out New York set mobster-movies – to ever decreasing returns. And so to By the Gun, which stars Scorsese alum Harvey Keitel, and tells yet another story of a wannabe mafioso who finally becomes a made man for it all to fall apart. Remind you of another film? It should!

By the Gun tells the story of Nick Tortano (Barnes), a smooth-talking and ambitious criminal from the streets of Boston. After years spent working and idolizing the Italian gangsters higher up the chain, he has to find a way to prove »

12 Times Blair Waldorf Proved She's the Ultimate Queen Bee

9 April 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Gossip Girl" may have said its final "Xoxo" in 2012, but that doesn't mean we've gotten over it. Sure, the cast has moved on, but a part of us we'll always think of them as their stylish, Upper East Side counterparts. Leighton Meester turns 29 on April 9, and to celebrate, we thought we would revisit some of Blair Waldorf's most memorable gems. Nobody on TV quite matches her witty, conniving, and totally glamorous Queen Bee-ness. We love you, B.

DVD Obscura: The New Indie and International Movies You Need to Watch

2 April 2015 10:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

New Indie: TV stars often turn to indie cinema to play more substantial roles, in different genres, than they’re called upon to perform on a weekly basis. Making the most of Life Partners (Magnolia Home Entertainment) are Leighton Meester (who knew she could be funny?) and Gillian Jacobs, who star as lifelong pals whose friendship hits a bump when one of them falls in love. The fact that one of them (Meester as Sasha) happens to be a lesbian is beside the point. Meester and Jacobs make very convincing pals, and their comedic interplay is a real treat. Add on an impressive supporting ensemble that includes Adam Brody, Gabourey Sidibe, Abby Elliott and Mark Feuerstein, and you’ve got a charming comedy that didn’t get enough love in theaters last year; if you missed...

Leighton Meester Is Still "Best Friends" With "Gossip Girl" Costar Zuzanna Szadkowski

25 March 2015 3:15 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Adam Brody just revealed a big bombshell that is making "Gossip Girl" fanatics jump for joy! In a new podcast for The Hollywood Reporter, the actor talked about working with his "Growing Up and Other Lies" costar Zuzanna Szadkowski, who played Dorota Kishlovsky on "Gossip Girl" with his wife, Leighton Meester. "She’s one of my wife’s best friends," Brody said of his costar. "I didn’t know her at the time. I wasn’t with my wife [when we filmed], and so we hardly talked then." On the hit teen series, Leighton's character Blair Waldorf was spotted all over the Upper Eastside with Dorota, her live-in maid and main confidant. So, this means, the pair is actually just as close as they were on-screen! In fact, Szadkowski, 36, recently showed her support for her on-and-off screen Bff at the opening night of Meester's play of "Of Mice and Men" on Broadway. The »

Who doesn't love a good meme? While surfing the web on Thursday, new mom Blake Lively stumbled across a series of bizarre memes that featured various celebrities' heads Photoshopped onto the bodies of dancers and rhythmic gymnasts.

The Inspiration for Filmmaker Frank Whaley's Latest Film Will Win Your Heart

13 March 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Watch: Leighton Meester Takes Charge in Exclusive "Like Sunday, Like Rain" Clip "Frank?" I stopped and turned, a few feet behind us stood a middle-aged African American man in a tank top, shorts and aviator sunglasses. He was tall and handsome with salt and pepper short, cropped hair. He was walking a fiercely tired looking bear of a dog whose tongue hung nearly to the ground. "Hey…" I said, no idea who this person was. He took a few steps closer and stopped. The enormous dog took that opportunity to collapse onto the warm pavement inches from my wife's feet.  "It's Jean-Pierre," he said and removed his aviator shades. "From The Helmsley. J.P." Suddenly, it all came back to me. Jean-Pierre Franklin from Slidell, Louisiana. We had met as room service waiters at The Helmsley Palace Hotel in the '80s. We were both hired to replace picketing hotel »

Chace Crawford Returns to TV: Relive 5 of His Hottest Gossip Girl Moments

11 March 2015 2:40 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Spotted: Chace Crawford ready to return to TV. The Gossip Girl actor has been cast as the lead in ABC's pilot Boom, Deadline Hollywood reports. This is his first leading role on the small screen since the soapy CW show ended in 2012, though Crawford, 29, guested as a Wasp-y Yale student on Glee last season (typecasting, much?). In honor of the sexy star's comeback, we're taking a trip down memory lane with Nate Archibald, the brooding lax bro he played on Gossip Girl. Here are Crawford's hottest moments as the prince of the Upper East Side. (And yes, he's shirtless in most of them. »

Precocious Indie Like Sunday, Like Rain Is as Fussy as Its Title

10 March 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Unsurprising given its laughably affected title, Like Sunday, Like Rain boasts what may be the most insufferably precocious protagonist in cinema history. Reggie (Julian Shatkin), a twelve-year-old boy genius, proclaims that art is dead, casually questions adult "mores," and composes classical music that he then practices on his cello in his Upper West Side mansion's empty indoor swimming pool. Actor-turned-writer/director Frank Whaley employs studied tracking shots and a mind-numbing piano theme to chart Reggie's quasi-romantic relationship with twentysomething Eleanor (Leighton Meester), who's hired by Reggie's cold, wealthy mom (Debra Messing) to be the kid's nanny. That job involves listening to Reggie prattle on about museum paintings and his vegan diet, al »

Life Partners Is a Charming Surprise in a Week of Underwhelming New Releases

3 March 2015 8:29 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! If you see something you like, click on the title to buy it from Amazon. Life Partners Sasha (Leighton Meester) and Paige (Gillian Jacobs) are best friends enjoying the single life on the cusp of turning thirty together. They’ve each had short-term relationships, but none of them have stuck. That all changes though when Paige meets and falls for Tim (Adam Brody). Their growing romance takes time away from Sasha, and soon the two friends are struggling to balance growing up and growing apart. Director/co-writer Susanna Fogel delivers an incredibly charming look at adult friendship that manages to stay fresh and funny even as its characters deal with familiar hurdles. Sharp writing keeps the exchanges and interactions both honest and entertaining, and they’re enhanced even more by the incredibly likable cast. All three leads manage the necessary emotion while also excelling at the comedic bits — Jacobs is »

Adam Brody and Lisa Joyce Get Incestuous in DirecTV’s ‘Billy & Billie’

26 February 2015 2:47 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Adam Brody (“The O.C.”) and Lisa Joyce (“Wallflowers,” “Boardwalk Empire”) play stepsiblings who most inconveniently fall for each other in DirecTV’s new romantic comedy series “Billy & Billie” — which was created by Neil Labute, and celebrated with a pilot-episode screening and candlelit after-party at the Lot in West Hollywood on Wednesday night.

“You may have come in feeling one way, and you walk out feeling another way,” warned Labute, whose series about the family members’ incestuous and clandestine relationship will debut March 3 at 8 p.m. on DirecTV’s Audience network on channel 239.

Also the show’s writer, Labute thought it would be interesting to explore an obstacle that society deems taboo in a rom-com format, and said that he wants to address love’s limits and societal acceptance.

Brody, who worked with Labute in “Some Girl(s),” said he’s a big fan of the writer and that he’ll »
