'Green Lantern' trailer hits. Let the swooning over Ryan Reynolds continue -- and the debate about the costume begin!

17 November 2010 8:35 AM, PST

Warner Bros. has just released the new trailer for its 2011 super-hero epic Green Lantern starring Ryan Reynolds — the same exact week as People is declaring Mr. Scarlett Johansson its new Sexiest Man Alive. Coincidence? I say not, especially since the trailer seems to be a showcase for its leading man’s said sexiness; it deserves the subtitle: Why Women Love Ryan Reynolds! Look at him exude charisma as he makes suggestive quips! (“Now let’s take these pants off and fly some planes.”) Look at him moonily ponder mankind’s gloomy condition and radiate vulnerability as he comes to grips with awesome responsibility! »

15 November 2010 12:34 PM, PST

Had there been one more film accepted, the category would have increased to five slots. The 15 semi-finalists are: Alpha and Omega, Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore, Despicable Me, The Dreams of Jinsha, How to Train Your DragonIdiots and AngelsThe Illusionist, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole, Megamind, My Dog Tulip, Shrek Forever After, »

Halle Berry: Another Oscar nod for 'Frankie'?

15 November 2010 11:27 AM, PST

Last week I had a chance to see Frankie & Alice, the Halle Berry drama that’s making a late entrance into the awards season. The former Best Actress winner for Monster’s Ball gives another strong, gutsy performance as a stripper with multiple-personality disorder (her other two personas are a racist white woman and, most arrestingly, a small child).
