20th Century Women Trailer Tease Sets A Stage Of Cultural Ennui

10 hours ago

Written and Directed by Mike Mills, who infuriatingly only makes a film every five years, 20th Century Women takes a calculating, borderline brutal, and if the trailer can be believed, brilliant look at the connections in our lives and what “raising a person” really means.

Much in the way Beginners questioned life and relationships through a semi-unique set of circumstances, this one, though fun and pushed by, if not filled with, a sense of hope, takes a set of women in the ’50s as asks us to examine life through their eyes.

The era and state of cultural identity look to be as much a character as anyone else, and the cast should be able to easily turn this into one of the best films of the year. Greta Gerwig, Annette Bening, and Elle Fanning have all nailed roles that delivered in this sphere, and have a real opportunity for »

Kurt Russell Talks Zero Regrets Over His Roles And Not Playing The Game In GQ

20 hours ago

Kurt Russell, who is about to hit theaters in Deepwater Horizon, opens up to GQ about a surprising number of topics related to his career, including his inability to call himself an actor, and his insistence that he has no regrets about any of his films. He also admits that he didn’t “play the game,”

You can grab a couple of bites below, but it’s a fascinating article as someone who has been in the game since they were 11 opens up about the vast experience that actually comes with that much time in the game, and he’s very frank about the highs and lows of his, or any career, and what those swings mean for you.

Check it out below.

The October issue of GQ will be available on newsstands in New York and L.A. on Tuesday September 20, and will be available nationally September 27.

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie Hitting Dhd Nov. 11 & Blu-Ray Nov. 29

21 hours ago

Absolutely Fabulous is one of my favorite television shows, and the fact that Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie didn’t hit theaters off the back of a massive, almost unprecedented marketing push is something that I felt was something of a personal affront… sort of.

Jennifer Saunders is easily one of the funniest women to walk the Earth, and the real rub of the popularity of Absolutely Fabulous is that it never translated into American audiences seeking out all her other work.

Coming back to Edina after a bit of a break is still a stretch, because much as I love it, the show really covered the available ground, but you have to love seeing her, and Patsy, again. And, as much as the duo have gotten up to some rather crazy things in their past, killing Kate Moss is a worthy excuse to bring back the franchise. Well, you know what I mean. »

Crisis In Six Scenes Review – Woody Allen Drops Trying Fun At Amazon

23 hours ago

Woody Allen shows up at Amazon (September 30th) for a “series” that is really difficult to call anything but a movie chopped into six episodes, and the results are a bit mixed. If you’re an Allen fan, you have to take it in, just for his best moments, and an ending that harkens back to a bygone era of loopy situation construction.

Crisis in Six Scenes is almost over-dipped in Allen styling, and unfortunately feels like a script that had a few revisions to go. It’s hard to avoid being charmed by Allen, playing his usual “not-quite-everyman” who now gets to pile paranoia on top of his agitated neurotic shtick, but the show loses its focus and ability when he isn’t on screen.

Allen plays Sidney Muntzinger, a semi-successful author who lives with his wife, Kay (Elaine May), a marital counselor. It’s the ’60s, the Vietnam War, »

Are You Screening? Podcast Ep. 176 – 10 Cloverfield & Worst Of The Year Lists

25 September 2016 5:07 PM, PDT

We’re catching up on our podcasts here, so don’t get thrown if we shove out quite a few of them in rapid succession. We’ve been a bit buried here for several months, and we considered ourselves lucky to get them out in the first place.

And, as our regular listeners know, there was a bit of a shake up at the beginning of the year.

Anyway, we didn’t really love 10 Cloverfield Lane, though we were fans of everyone in it. Go figure.

Adding to that, we ran down our list of the year’s worst movies, which didn’t make for a fun show… sort of.

We won’t give away the lists here, you’ll have to listen.

Thanks for checking us out, and as always – please share, subscribe, rate us on iTunes, and otherwise trick your friends into listening to us!
