13 December 2016 2:47 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

During a recent interview with Playboy, Matthew McConaughey revealed more than ever about his personal life, upbringing and what makes him tick.

Here’s what the Sing star had to say on everything from toying with the idea of becoming a monk to his early-90s romance with Sandra Bullock.

The McConaissance wasn’t about ditching his rom-com days.

After taking some time off following a string of romantic-comedies, McConaughey re-emerged as the leading man in several critically-acclaimed projects.

“I didn’t rebrand in those 18 months; I unbranded,” said the 47-year-old. “I became some people’s good new idea. People »

Matthew McConaughey and Jeff Bridges Talk the Challenges of Making Acting Look Easy

30 November 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Matthew McConaughey and Jeff Bridges sat down for a chat for Variety’s “Actors on Actors.” For more, tune in with the fifth season premieres on Jan. 3 on PBS SoCal. 

Matthew McConaughey: Jeff Bridges. How are you, man? I feel like I met you — or at least we’ve hung out many times. But then if I look at my calendar of 47 years, this is our first time.

Jeff Bridges: But don’t you find that with actors? I don’t know what is it — a club, a fraternity, a sorority, or whatever you want to call it. Not all actors, but most, you just link up because you have so much in common.

McConaughey: Maybe we were brothers from another mother somewhere, another life.

And I do feel that there is a fraternity with actors. But you, in particular and specifically, I felt like, “I know that guy, »

Camerimage Film Festival Opens With Tributes to Jessica Lange, Robert Lantos

12 November 2016 2:16 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bydgoszcz, Poland — The Camerimage Film Festival kicked off its 24th edition Saturday, honoring cinematography from around the globe, and honoring producer Robert Lantos and two-time Oscar winner Jessica Lange in the grand hall of the Opera Nova in the town of Bydgoszcz, Poland.

Lange drew applause as she confessed she was “actually thrilled to be out of the United States” this week while accepting the Krzysztof Kieslowski award for outstanding performances. An audience of scores of top DPs and directors, mixed with the cream of Polish cinema and dozens of local film students, expressed appreciation for the actress’ four decades of work, ranging from 1976’s “King Kong” to “Grey Gardens” via “The Postman Always Rings Twice” and “Frances.”

Lantos, a longtime collaborator with the likes of directors Istvan Szabo, David Cronenberg and Atom Egoyan, also took to the stage to receive his Golden Frog for producer with unique visual sensitivity. »

Review: Lalo Schifrin's "Black Widow" And "Towering Toccata" Dual Album Release

7 July 2016 3:35 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Darren Allison

Growing up with the film music of Lalo Schifrin in the 1970s made these two albums somewhat compulsory listening. Black Widow (1976) marked Schifrin’s debut album for the legendary Cti (Creed Taylor Incorporated) label with Towering Toccata (1977) proving to be a perfect follow up. Both of these albums (recorded in 1976) feature some of the greatest Jazz musicians of the period including Eric Gale, Steve Gadd, Hubert Laws, Jon Faddis, Anthony Jackson and Joe Farrell, to name just a few.

Schifrin provides a Jazz funk vibe to some classic movie themes including Steven Spielberg’s monster smash Jaws. The track (which still sounds incredible) was released from Black Widow as a single and charted at number 14 in the UK singles chart, becoming something of an established disco anthem. The Black Widow album also did well, reaching number 22 in the Us list of jazz bestsellers and appeared in the R&B chart. »

Rewind This! – The Review: A Look Back at the Days of VHS

10 March 2016 5:53 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I admit it, I’m a sentimental old fart.  I get choked up and maudlin very often, when I think of family and friends, a moment in time when I realized the tragedy life can bring to us, or the joy.  I tear up at the movies regularly, or reading certain passages in books. But I never thought I would weep at the loss of a video system.  If you read We Are Movie Geeks regularly you must be aware of the video revolution of the 1980s, when VHS players and recorders found a place in almost every home in America.  I hope you recall the early days when VHS was neck and neck with Betamax, a technically better system. Remember the days of Mom and Pop video rental stores when almost anyone could open a store front, and with a collection of VHS tapes start making money?  As one of the many, »

Review: "The 88Th Annual Academy Awards"

29 February 2016 8:40 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Remember the old days when unpredictable occurrences seemed to predictably occur at the Oscars ceremony? There was the nude streaker who failed to unravel the ever-unflappable David Niven. There were the political activist winners who used the forum to grandstand for their favorite causes. This included Vanessa Redgrave's pro-Palestinian, anti-Zionist remarks during her acceptance speech, Marlon Brando sending a surrogate to reject his "Godfather" Oscar in protest of Hollywood's treatment of Native Americans, "Patton" winner George C. Scott refusing to show up at all in protest of the competitive nature of awards shows, the producers of the anti-Vietnam War documentary "Hearts and Minds" taking solace that that the nation was about to be "liberated" by a brutal communist regime, which caused another stir when Frank Sinatra was pushed on stage at Bob Hope's urging to read a hastily-scribbled denouncement of the remark. The Oscars haven't »

Ed Lauter Exemplified Versatility, Authenticity in Character Actor’s Craft

28 January 2016 11:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Being one of the top character actors of American film and television must be the ultimate double-edged career sword.

On the one hand, if you’re good — and the late Ed Lauter was one of American cinema’s great character actors — you work all the time. On the other hand, as Lauter told Shock Cinema magazine back in 2010, “Sometimes people don’t know my name. They’ll say, ‘Oh, yeah! There’s that guy! You were in … Jesus Christ … you were in … in …’ So, in a way it’s good — and in a way it’s bad.”

Lauter was not alone in his plight. He and his fellow character actors who consistently deliver the goods have been a mainstay of American cinema since the days of the Hollywood’s “stock players,” a moniker that devalues the work of great performers from Hattie McDaniel to Peter Lorre, from Sidney Greenstreet to »
