“Irrational Man” and back: Ranking the films of Woody Allen

17 July 2015 1:31 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

I know I’m one of the few, but in my humble opinion Woody Allen has yet to make an overtly bad film. His best are all time classics, but even his worst are still very much watchable movies that have pleasures to be found within them. On the occasion of the release of his latest outing Irrational Man, I wanted to run down all of Allen’s solo directorial endeavors and rank them. I’ll also be writing a bit about Irrational Man first, but below you’ll find a list of all 45 of his works to date. In the interest of not making this the longest piece in existence, I’m only going to be writing about the top ten, but the list will go down the line of everything he’s made (with the exception of what he didn’t direct, didn’t completely direct, or made »

Emma Stone Reveals Which Irrational Man Scene Made Her Mom Crack Up, Dishes on La La Land With Ryan Gosling—Watch

10 July 2015 9:21 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Don't be so modest! Emma Stone first worked with Woody Allen in 2014's Magic in the Moonlight, and she teamed up with the director a second time in Irrational Man, in theaters today. Still, she's not comfortable being called his muse. "I tend to just disagree, but I did do two movies with him, so...you know," Stone told E! News. During a recent press junket interview, Stone said her favorite Allen film "kind of switches all the time," but her favorite at the moment is 1973's Sleeper. "I love the kind of wacky, outlandish satire," she said. In Irrational Man, Joaquin Phoenix plays a philosophy professor who suffers an existential crisis and begins an affair with a »

Drive-In Dust Offs: Westworld

4 July 2015 11:05 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

As a kid, you can’t be picky where you find your fix of sci-fi and horror. Sometimes it’s the big screen, but often (for me, anyway) it was that living room landmark, television. I remember being seven and watching a Western where a couple of guys are on vacation at a resort where you can be a cowboy and have gunfights with androids (Sci-Fi, sweet!). And then…bad things start to happen. The androids break down, and now they’re killing the guests (ooh, Horror!). My head reeled from this magical swirl, a mesh of circuitry and chaos. Welcome to Westworld (1973), and its parent resort, Delos. Their slogan: Have we got a vacation for you.

This was a pretty good year for Sci-Fi. Soylent Green made a splash (“It’s Peeoople!!!”), the latest installment in the Apes franchise, Battle for the Planet of the Apes, and Woody Allen »

Woody Allen’s Producer Jack Rollins Dies at 100

18 June 2015 5:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Longtime comedy producer-manager Jack Rollins, who handled Woody Allen, David Letterman, Billy Crystal, Robin Williams and Lenny Bruce, died Thursday at his home in Manhattan. He was 100.

Rollins, a native of Brooklyn, was a co-producer with the late Charles H. Joffe on many of Allen’s films. The duo managed many of the industry’s top comedy acts starting in the 1960s.

Rollins appeared briefly in Allen’s 1984 film, “Broadway Danny Rose,” in which Allen played a manager of a variety of strange acts — a character he loosely modeled on Rollins.

Rollins and Joffe had producing credits on all of Allen’s films between 1969 and 1993, including “Take the Money and Run,” “Annie Hall,” “Manhattan,” “Bananas,” Sleeper,” “Hannah and Her Sisters,” “Zelig,” “Radio Days” and “Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

Born as Jacob Rabinowitz in Brooklyn, he broke into the business after World War II as a Broadway producer, then founded a talent »

5 Flights Up Review

7 May 2015 3:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When one actor is particularly magnetic to watch, the well-worn adage goes that fans would pay money to see that actor read the phone book. Fans of Diane Keaton and Morgan Freeman that would find that directory patter electrifying will be part of the target audience for 5 Flights Up, yet another septuagenarian drama that coasts almost entirely on the gentle chemistry between those stars. If you’re willing to pay money to see them go apartment shopping, this is the film for you.

Freeman and Keaton star as Alex and Ruth Carver, a charming couple with mixed feelings about selling their quaint Brooklyn apartment – one that overlooks the bridge, has a garden on the roof and plenty of sunlight coming through the windows. They have lived at this picturesque location for 40 years, but now that Ruth has retired from teaching and Alex huffs to get up the five flights leading to the door, »

Why 1973 Was the Best Year in Movie History

30 April 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century. Click here for a complete list of our essays. It’s perhaps a little quaint to choose a year that I wasn’t even alive during to represent the best year of cinema. I was not there to observe how any of these films conversed with the culture around them when they were first screened. So, although I am choosing the glorious year of 1973, I am choosing not just due to a perusal of top ten lists that year—but because the films that were released that year greatly influenced how I engage with movies now, in 2015. Films speak to more than just the audiences that watch them—they speak to each other. Filmmakers inspire each other. Allusions are made. A patchwork begins. These are the movies of our lives. Having grown up with cinema in the 90s, »

10 ridiculously silly movie orgasms: Jennifer Aniston, Jason Biggs & more

13 February 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The hotly-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie is finally released in cinemas today (February 13) to coincide with Valentine's Day this weekend, and it's got our minds racing about just one thing....

The most ridiculously silly orgasms in movie history, obviously!

From Jennifer Aniston's otherworldly pleasure to Jason Biggs's doubly embarrassing shortcomings - here are 10 fantastically farcical orgasms on the silver screen below:

1. Jason Biggs in American Pie (1999)

Virginal, apple pie-bonking Jim Levenstein can't believe his luck when his history tutoring with sexy Slovakian exchange student Nadia (Shannon Elizabeth) turns into something more. So excited is Jim, however, that he barely contains himself at her touch, only lasting a few more seconds on second go, until he, er, explodes again.

Sadly Stifler (Seann William Scott) had previously coerced Jim to set up a webcam in his room so they can all watch the frisky teenage pair, but he unwittingly »

The fantasist: The comic art of Woody Allen

24 January 2015 12:49 PM, PST | The Moving Arts Journal | See recent The Moving Arts Journal news »

Everyone knows Woody Allen. At least, everyone thinks they know Woody Allen. His plumage is easily identifiable: horn-rimmed glasses, baggy suit, wispy hair, kvetching demeanor, ironic sense of humor, acute fear of death. As is his habitat: New York City, though recently he has flown as far afield as London, Barcelona, and Paris. His likes are well known: Bergman, Dostoevsky, New Orleans jazz. So too his dislikes: spiders, cars, nature, Wagner records, the entire city of Los Angeles. Whether or not these traits represent the true Allen, who’s to say? It is impossible to tell, with Allen, where cinema ends and life begins, an obfuscation he readily encourages. In the late nineteen-seventies, disillusioned with the comedic success he’d found making such films as Sleeper (1973), Love and Death (1975), and Annie Hall (1977), he turned for darker territory with Stardust Memories (1980), a film in which, none too surprisingly, he plays a »
