Superficial 'News,' Mineo-Dean Bromance-Romance and Davis' fading 'Star': 31 Days of Oscar

6 February 2016 6:49 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Broadcast News' with Albert Brooks and Holly Hunter: Glib TV news watch. '31 Days of Oscar': 'Broadcast News' slick but superficial critics pleaser (See previous post: “Phony 'A Beautiful Mind,' Unfairly Neglected 'Swing Shift': '31 Days of Oscar'.”) Heralded for its wit and incisiveness, James L. Brooks' multiple Oscar-nominated Broadcast News is everything the largely forgotten Swing Shift isn't: belabored, artificial, superficial. That's very disappointing considering Brooks' highly addictive Mary Tyler Moore television series (and its enjoyable spin-offs, Phyllis and Rhoda), but totally expected considering that three of screenwriter-director Brooks' five other feature films were Terms of Endearment, As Good as It Gets, and Spanglish. (I've yet to check out I'll Do Anything and the box office cataclysm How Do You Know starring Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, and Jack Nicholson.) Having said that, Albert Brooks (no relation to James L.; or to Mel Brooks »

Bye Instant Watch: Terms of Endearment, Tom Cruise, Big Fish...

28 January 2016 12:23 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

What's leaving Netflix Instant Watch?

We should probably start covering that. It seems like a boring topic but we jazz up your public service announcements. I'll close my eyes and play with the control bar and wherever I freeze the movie I'll share the image. This weekend is your last chance to watch these films for free for who knows how long. Since there are Oscar titles in the mix, perhaps you can fill some holes in your Oscar lists of Things To See or Rewatch.

Ready? In chronological order of their film year, seven films leaving Netflix on February 1st...

Terms Of Endearment (1983)

Emma: I've got some good news. I'm unofficially pregnant. I mean I haven't got the tests back but I'm never late.

Aurora: [Pause] Well... No, I don't understand."

Look how crazy young Jeff Daniels is! Shirley Maclaine is so hilarious and complicated in this movie -- that »

Get Psyched (or Psychiatric)! Rachel Bloom and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Are Back

25 January 2016 1:20 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Accepting a best actress Golden Globe last month for her first-season CW series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Rachel Bloom put on a display of suitably crazy, actress-y fireworks: "We sent the pilot to every other network in Hollywood! We got six rejections in one day - and we felt like crap! But we knew it was good!" She was very excited. It was almost as big a moment as Shirley MacLaine screaming for painkillers for Debra Winger in Terms of Endearment. Actually, since it was funny, it was probably better. Now it's time for you to do your part! You owe it »

‘The Big Short’ Wins PGA Awards’ Best Picture, Could be One of Few Comedies to Win Best Picture Oscar

25 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

On Saturday evening the PGA Awards presented The Big Short with its top prize, the Darryl F. Zanuck award for best picture. Unlike the previous awards shows this season, such as the Golden Globes or Critics’ Choice Awards, the PGA’s are the first awards this season presented by people who actually make movies. They also have one of the best track records of predicting Oscar success, with 19 of the last 26 Zanuck award winners going on to win the best picture Oscar.

What this all means is that The Big Short has positioned itself as the slight lead dog in a close race for best picture. While a PGA award is a big step in the right direction for the film, it does still have the overwhelming disadvantage of being a comedy competing for best picture. Historically, comedic-skewing films have not performed well with the Academy, »

Adam McKay and Charles Randolph (working from a book by Michael Lewis) for McKay's The Big Short, Nick Hornby (novel by Colm Tóibín) for John Crowley's Brooklyn, Phyllis Nagy (book by Patricia Highsmith) for Todd Haynes' Carol and Emma Donoghue's adaptation of her own novel for Lenny Abrahamson's Room, join Drew Goddard (book by Andy Weir) for Ridley Scott's The Martian as the five Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar nominees. Aaron Sorkin's adaptation of Walter Isaacson's biography for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs is a glaring omission by the Academy voters.

Jeff Daniels, the star of Woody Allen's The Purple Rose Of Cairo and James L. Brooks' Terms Of Endearment, is the thread between Oscar nominated actors Kate Winslet, Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs and Matt Damon in The Martian »

A Look at the 2015 Best Picture Nominees

15 January 2016 9:27 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

The 2015 Oscar nominations have been announced with The Revenant leading the way with 12 nominations followed by Mad Max: Fury Road with ten. After crunching some numbers we've taken a look at how this year's crop of Best Picture nominees stacks up to prior, pre-nomination box office totals. Have a look at what we found after comparing this year's eight Best Picture nominees to 190 previous Best Picture contenders, going back 33 years to 1982. Note: Before reading on, please be aware this article is specifically comparing pre-nomination grosses (not adjusted for inflation) unless otherwise noted. To begin, Room is the sixth lowest grossing Best Picture nominee (pre-nominations) in the last 33 years with $5.1 million. The five lower grossing films are American Sniper ($3.3M), Letters from Iwo Jima ($2.5M), My Left Foot ($2.1M), The Dresser ($562k) and Amour ($371k). In fact, Room will likely end up as one of the top ten lowest grossing Best »

Relationships are complicated: Sabrina returns to screens this month

15 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Hollywood is full of good films made by actors who didn’t get along.

Debra Winger and Shirley MacLaine despised each other while filming Terms of Endearment, Ryan Goslingand Rachel McAdams were at odds playing lovers in The Notebook and Humphrey Bogart couldn’t stand hisSabrina co-stars William Holden and Audrey Hepburn.

Sabrina (1954), directed by Billy Wilder, casts Bogart as Linus Larrabee, the older and much more responsible brother to playboy David Larrabee (Holden). David stuns his wealthy family when he makes a play for Sabrina (Hepburn), the chauffer’s daughter. It’s up to Linus to break up the inappropriate match, and in doing so he falls in love with Sabrina.

Perhaps it was his own insecurity — playing the 54-year-old love interest to the 24-year-old Hepburn — that caused Bogart to berate his co-stars, but whatever the cause of his animosity it remains off-screen, allowing viewers to enjoy this witty, »

I was taken on a Seventies musical journey to Donna Summer land, Abba’s Waterloo and the great Starman creator, David Bowie, by Drew Goddard, the screenwriter who adapted Andy Weir's book for Ridley Scott's The Martian, starring Matt Damon with Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Sean Bean, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kristen Wiig, Benedict Wong, Mackenzie Davis, Donald Glover, Sebastian Stan, and Aksel Hennie. Daniels (Nasa director Teddy Sanders) who plays Apple CEO John Sculley in Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs - starring Michael Fassbender with Kate Winslet, and written by Aaron Sorkin - is a favorite of Goddard’s since Woody Allen's The Purple Rose Of Cairo and James L. Brooks' Terms Of Endearment.

Does Writing the Screenplay to Your Film Help Best Director Chances?

12 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

With a number of big Golden Globe wins last night, including best director and best dramatic picture for The Revenant, director Alejandro G. Inarritu finds himself once more in the thick of the Oscar hunt. The Mexican-born filmmaker won big last year with three Oscars for his avant garde drama Birdman, which scored him the best original screenplay, best director, and best picture awards.

This year, with the western revenge thriller The Revenant, Inarritu has once more directed a film that he wrote himself, this time adapting the screenplay from the novel by Michael Punke with co-writer Mark L. Smith.

Inarritu is not the only writer/director with films in the race this year, however, as a number of other contenders boast a director who also penned the film’s script. The original screenplay hopefuls include Spotlight (directed and written by Tom McCarthy with co-writer »

The Definitive Romantic Comedies: 50-41

9 January 2016 4:03 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We all have predisposed notions about the infamous “romantic comedy.” As with other genres, there’s a large subsection of offerings, giving it a bad name. But, for every tired, cliché-driven comedy, there is another impressive offering that redefines the genre, garners plenty of laughs, and tells an honest story about love and relationships, however warped they may be. In the coming weeks, we’ll take a look at the fifty romantic comedy films that should be seen. These may not all be classic films, but they certainly put a stamp on the industry and the genre we affectionately call “rom-coms.”

 #50. Moonrise Kingdom (2012)

Most of Wes Anderson’s films could be described as romantic comedies, but his 2012 effort stands out, as its central story focuses on young love and the need to find acceptance. In Anderson’s world, while quirks abound, true connections between characters are commonplace. With Moonrise Kingdom, »
