Film Review: ‘The Culture High’

16 October 2014 10:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A serious-minded two-hour documentary consisting of wall-to-wall talking heads isn’t the typical definition of stoner cinema, but “The Culture High” has a sincere aim to impact the ongoing debate over marijuana legalization. Unfortunately, the film’s haphazard structure and freewheeling arguments only serve to reinforce tired pothead cliches — it’s paranoid, prone to starry-eyed dorm-room philosophizing, and it doesn’t know when to quit. Director Brett Harvey previously delved into the topic in his 2007 debut, “The Union: The Business Behind Getting High,” and that pic’s cult fanbase should spark to this long-winded but ultimately optimistic follow-up. But without a more rigorous edit, any chances of breaking out to a wider audience in an Oct. 17 VOD release will quickly go up in smoke.

Harvey and co-writer Michael Bobroff appear to view weed as a jumping-off point to discuss, well, just about anything. Militarized police, the proliferation of prescription drugs, »

‘Whiplash,’ ‘St. Vincent,’ 13 More Join Crowded Specialty Box Office: Preview

9 October 2014 5:19 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Intense music drama Whiplash, already a big winner at Sundance and the Deauville American Film Festival earlier this year, should drum up plenty of audience interest in its debut this weekend, even though it faces a crowded specialty market that also features several other notable newcomers, including the Bill Murray comedy St. Vincent, Hilary Swank‘s You’re Not You and Jeremy Renner‘s Kill the Messenger. All are what I’d call “big” specialty releases, with big names attached that should attract big attention.

The weekend also includes what I’d call some “small” releases, including documentaries The Overnighters (another Sundance winner) and I Am Ali, about the former heavyweight boxing champion, alongside the Mormon Church-backed Meet the Mormons. All will be clawing for attention in a market that’s seen more than 30 films debut in the past three weeks.

That said, Whiplash should be a real career turner »

Mindy Newell: Message In A Bottle – Or On A DC T-Shirt

6 October 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Over the past three decades, there has been a steady rise in the share of women, especially mothers, in the workforce. [Collected data shows that] the majority of women and mothers work, and many work full time and full year. This dramatic increase in women’s working hours has had a substantial impact both on household earnings and the economy more generally. Our analysis finds that middle-class households would have substantially lower earnings today if women’s employment patterns had remained unchanged. Had that been the case, gross domestic product, or Gdp, would have been roughly 11 percent lower in 2012 if women had not increased their working hours as they did. In today’s dollars, this translates to more than $1.7 trillion less in output – roughly equivalent to combined U.S. spending on Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid in 2012. • The Economic Importance of Women’s Rising Hours of Work, A paper presented at the 75 Years of »

Petition for National Bollywood Day

15 September 2014 5:10 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

It’s almost (unofficial) National Bollywood Day!

A petition is circulating on change.org to ask Mayor Bob Buckhorn of Tampa, which this year hosted the Iifa Awards, to officially name Oct. 11 as National Bollywood Day. The petition’s short-term goal is 200 signatures, and the long-term goal is 1,000.

Sanskriti Inamdar, creative director at Ishanya Dance & Fitness Bollywood dance studio in North Carolina, started the petition because, “many Americans are unaware about Bollywood and its role in the United States. How wonderful would it be if we could take this step to put Bollywood on the map!”

The petition also says, “Bollywood, which is a widely used name for the Indian Film Industry, churns the highest number of movies in a year as compared to any other movie industry. Bollywood has entertained masses across the world with its movies, music, and dance. United States has witnessed the increasing economic impact of »

How Politicizing Batman Gets Dangerous

23 August 2014 8:42 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As far as most people can tell, though the actual chronology tends to get confusing, it all started with the late Andrew Brietbart.

In between the right wing of American politics stomping up and down about Hollywood liberals like George Clooney and Angelina Jolie, occasionally they take a break and instead summarily hijack a beloved film for their own political means.  As opposed to successfully producing content that is undoubtedly in line with their politics, guys like Rush Limbaugh and Brietbart are quicker to repurpose an already well-packaged product.

That’s exactly what Brietbart.com did with Christopher Nolan’s second foray into Gotham, praising The Dark Knight for its clear anti-terrorism pro-Patriot Act stance.  This became a major talking point throughout the news and blogosphere as the film’s popularity grew.  And for folks as far right as Limbaugh, it must have felt like Christmas.

I mean, here we have a film, »

Bob Ingersoll: The Law Is A Ass #322: Batman Buys The Pharm

15 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Technically, we can’t call Batman a “white hat” hero. Even back in the 50s in his brightest days his hat – er cowl – was blue. But back then his actions were noble. He was and acted like a white hat hero, even if his headgear didn’t match.

Now, however, his hat is somewhere between dark gray and black. And his actions frequently trend even darker. Like in Catwoman # 29.

Now before you go further, I should issue a customary Spoiler Warning, because I’m about to give away more than you could have wanted to know about the plot to Catwoman # 29, unless what you wanted to know was how it ended. If that’s what you want to know, then keep reading, because that’s what you’re about to get.

In this story Catwoman was attending a large black-tie publicity party being held by Taylor Pharmaceuticals. The purpose of said party was two-fold. »

Hillary Clinton-Katy Perry in 2016? A Short History of Pop Songs in Presidential Campaigns

"Hey, Hillz! Nice meeting you. Lemme write you a song when you run for president!" That's basically how Katy Perry followed up her meeting with Hillary Clinton at a book signing last Friday.

Diane Sawyer To Leave ABC’s ‘World News’ While Stephanopoulos, Muir Take Broader Anchor Roles

25 June 2014 6:21 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Diane Sawyer will step away from her lead anchor role at ABC’s “World News” to tackle a series of enterprise projects while George Stephanopoulos and David Muir will assume her responsibilities, the first as lead anchor on all special reports and breaking news and the second, starting September 2, as anchor and managing editor of the network’s flagship evening-news broadcast.

In a note to staffers, Ben Sherwood, the former ABC News chief who is set to take sole oversight of Disney’s non-sports TV assets, portrayed the shift as driven by Sawyer’s desire to spend more time focused on original reporting that may not always be driven by daily headlines. Sawyer approached Sherwood at the end of 2013, said ABC News President James Goldston in a statement.

Clint Eastwood: Cowboy Led ‘Jersey Boys’ Down a New Trail

10 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In 1962, the same year that a quartet of working-class New Jersey youths called the Four Seasons shot to the top of the pop charts with the irresistible doo-wop single “Sherry,” a solo artist from the West Coast made a less auspicious chart appearance with an earnest cowboy ballad inspired by his character on a popular TV Western. Entitled “Rowdy,” the song featured its gravelly voiced performer lamenting life on the open range, set to a gentle, galloping tempo. That singer was Clint Eastwood.

Surely, few listening to the radio back then would have imagined that, 50-odd years later, the Four Seasons’ pint-sized frontman, Frankie Valli, would still be selling out arenas with his vibrating falsetto. Fewer still would have wagered that Eastwood, then in his fourth season as Rowdy Yates on CBS’ “Rawhide,” would not only go on to become one of Hollywood’s most iconic leading men, but one of its most lauded director-producers, »

Must-See Late Night Clip: Matt Lauer Peer Pressures Fallon into Dancing ‘Gangnam Style’

This week, the music video for Korean pop star Psy's "Gangnam Style" became the first YouTube video to cross the 2 billion view mark. And all Jimmy Fallon wanted to do was make a (probably lame) joke about it. But then, members of his audience started pressuring him to break out the dance that he perfected during his days playing Mitt Romney. »

Seth Rogen is blasting an outlet for falsely quoting him after being duped by a parody Twitter account. On Saturday, the site NewsBusters took Rogen to task for allegedly being hypocritical in his recent slam of Ann Hornaday, the journalist who linked his movies to last week's killing spree in California. NewsBusters tries to trap Rogen by pointing out that he was complaining about Hornaday's unfair treatment after allegedly comparing Mitt Romney to the Ku Klux Klan in 2012. »

Mindy Kaling may have graduated from Dartmouth, but she had a lot of inspirational and irreverent words for Harvard Law's graduating class. She says the legacy of the school will always be a part of their lives -- until they run for office and need to distance themselves from Harvard to seem like normal people. "Mitt Romney? He preferred to be known as 'the Mormon guy' to distract himself from his Harvard past." She killed it. Check out the whole speech here. »
