Review: Alejandro G. Iñárritu's 'Birdman' opens Venice with a sure-fire Oscar bet

7 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Venice - Truth or dare? This is a game played by two characters in magnificently acidic metatextual comedy "Birdman." It's also the film as a three-word question. Truth or dare? Real stage actor or star? You can have your artistic integrity, or you can have a hit. You can go Method, or you can really fly. You can be Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton), or you can be Birdman (Riggan Thomson). Initially, "Birdman" poses as a trenchant critique of the seemingly endless parade of men in capes that is the summer blockbuster season (Michael Fassbender and Robert Downey Jr. are name-checked as fine actors currently otherwise occupied), but it's actually rather more nuanced than that. The values of the sober-minded art espoused by a poisonous critic (Lindsay Duncan) and the untrustworthy joys of escapist cinema are both probed and prodded. It's impossible for a film featuring the nightmare creation of stage »

No clarification on why Oprah was there, but does Oprah need an excuse to be in the movie or simply be around the movie constantly being excited about it? Oprah is beyond reasons.

'Selma' first look: David Oyelowo takes on Martin Luther King in upcoming film

22 August 2014 12:02 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

A cross, constructed entirely of lightbulbs, shines behind David Oyelowo as he approaches the pulpit of Atlanta’s 145-year-old Wheat Street Baptist Church. It’s a steamy June night, and 500 extras—including U.S. Rep. John Lewis, a key architect of the civil rights movement—eagerly await the British-born actor’s first attempt to preach as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. But just as director Ava DuVernay puts on her headphones and does a last sound check, a freak lightning storm threatens the safety of the crew and forces the production to shut down.

Dave Grohl's Ice Bucket Video is Your New Prom Queen

19 August 2014 11:56 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I'm sorry, but if you're going to participate in the Als Ice Bucket Challenge, you have to put on a twist on it. Unless you're Oprah or Bill Gates, you owe it to us to show off more than your ability to get soaked while a camera rolls. Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters understand this need and givesus perhaps the most elaborate and dramatic Ice Bucket Challenge yet. Dave and Taylor Hawkins really commit. I won't spoil it -- but make sure to take notice of the last two people he challenges. A brilliant little foreshadowing of what's to come. »

The 10 most insane things that happened on 'Top Model' this week

After 20 seasons, one billion nutty contestants (true fact: if laid end to end, they’d stretch all the way to Modelland and back), gallons of haircut-related tears, myriad delightful variations on “I’m not here to make friends,” countless instances of Tyra Banks randomly slipping into one of her four accents (“vaguely British,” “almost French,” “Oprah,” and “daaa-yum, girl!”), and challenges involving roaches, tarantulas, clouds of pheromone-crazed bees, and Fabio, saying “that crazy thing on America’s Next Top Model” is sort of like talking about suicide in Buffalo—it’s redundant.

Yes, The Ice Bucket Challenge Is Raising Tons of Money And That's Good

18 August 2014 3:26 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Being annoying is okay if it makes a difference.

Let's talk about ice bucket backlash.

As of today, the Als Association announced it has received $15.6 million in donations, a dramatic increase over the $1.8 million raised at this time last year, owed almost entirely to the Als Ice Bucket Challenge -- better known as those videos on your Facebook and Twitter feeds that Just. Won't. Stop.

Oprah took the challenge. Chris Pratt did it, too. Lady Gaga did it wrong. And yes, we did it as well along with our very own Nancy O'Dell.

Watch: Et's Nancy O'Dell Takes the Ice Bucket Challenge

By this point, we all can admit, it's getting a little old. Some more cynical critics of the challenge ask -- is this charity or narcissism? What happens when the next good cause needs a viral stunt, and it fails to take off? Are we all just making ourselves feel better by pretending to do something »

Even Weird Al Succumbed to the Ice-Bucket Thing

17 August 2014 10:50 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Everywhere around Hollywood, celebrities are dumping buckets of ice water on their heads to raise money for Als: Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, Oprah — even Kerry Washington. No one is immune, not even Weird Al, who knows an inescapable virus when he sees one. We appreciate that he has a concept, doesn't belabor the point (it's under 30 seconds), and keeps it weird, which means he's basically negated the need for all other celebrities to do this. Did you hear that, all other celebrities? »

NFL teams have done it. Mlb teams have done it. The United States Men's Basektball Team has done it.  Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates have done it.  By Saturday afternoon, the Ice Bucket Challenge in support for Als (better known as Lou Gehrig's disease) had reached a cultural tipping point.  Yes, Oprah had joined the fray. But, not only Oprah, "Iron Man" himself Robert Downey, Jr. (a relative newcomer to social media) and a certain "Guardian of the Galaxy" named Chris Pratt. You can watch Pratt's attempt to ditch the bucket by drinking other versions of "ice" here:   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Post by Chris Pratt.     You can check out Robert Downey Jr.'s dousing here:   Hemsworth! »
