Trace The Rise & Fall Of The Rom-Com With This 15-Minute Video Essay

27 May 2016 1:31 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The tone of your standard American romantic comedy has changed a bit since the likes of “13 Going on 30” and even “When Harry Met Sally” before that. Those films were markedly earnest, wearing their proclamations of true love on their sleeves for all to see. Of course, today’s audiences are no longer impressed when […]

Thirty Years of Top Gun

15 May 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thirty years after its first release, Neil Calloway takes a look at Top Gun

Thirty years ago this week – 16th May 1986, to be precise, Top Gun was released and pop culture was changed forever. With the possible exclusion of films where Spielberg and Lucas were involved, it is arguably the most iconic film of the 1980s, certainly if you only consider films aimed at men.

If nothing else, it turned Tony Scott into a major Hollywood player and put Tom Cruise at the top of the firmament where – couch jumping incidents aside, he has remained ever since. It gave an early role to Meg Ryan three years before When Harry Met Sally, Tim Robbins and Anthony Edwards appear eight years before The Shawshank Redemption and E.R. made them stars. Adrian Pasdar has a tiny role a full twenty years before Heroes. Add Val Kilmer (five years before The Doors), and »

Rapid Round: Rob Reiner Talks Donald Trump, Iraq War Film and the "Kardashianization of America" (Q&A)

6 May 2016 5:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

For Rob Reiner — who helmed the laugh-filled classics This Is Spinal Tap, The Princess Bride and When Harry Met Sally..., among many others — it's the dark and deeply personal drama Being Charlie that he considers a major highlight of his career. "It was not the easiest but it was probably the most satisfying," he tells The Hollywood Reporter of his new film, which stars Nick Robinson as the titular teenager grappling with drug addiction and the shadow of his famous father (Cary Elwes). The film was tough to make not only because it features a script co-written by and based on

‘The View': Rob Reiner Rips Donald Trump’s ‘Ignorance, Bigotry, Xenophobia, Racism’ (Video)

4 May 2016 10:37 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Suffice it to say, Rob Reiner will not be casting his ballot for Donald Trump this November. The “When Harry Met Sally…” director ripped into the presumptive Gop presidential nominee Wednesday while guesting on “The View.” “If Donald Trump wasn’t a celebrity, if there was a man that said the things that he has said, he’d be a crazy man in the park on a soapbox that you’d walk by,” Reiner said. “Between banning Muslims, throwing out Latinos, women being punished,” he said, “it’s an astounding list of ignorance and bigotry and xenophobia and racism.” Also »

Mindy Newell: Wilson Fisk and Hell’s Kitchen

2 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

 

“Today, the only reminder that this stretch of (Manhattan’s) SoHo was once a forest of filling stations known as Gasoline Alley is a coffee shop of the same name that sells single-origin coffee beans from Burundi.” • Sarah Maslin Nir, “With Gas Station’s Closing, A Fuel Desert Expands in Manhattan,” The New York Times, April 22, 2016

“On a block where a kebab could once be had at 2 a.m. from Bereket, the 24-hour Turkish restaurant that was forced to close in 2014, there will now be a 30,000-square-foot Equinox gym and spa with a lounge and juice bar; condo residents will be able to access the two-story gym through a private entrance. Gone too, are places like Ray’s Pizza and Empanada Mama. While such spots and the unmemorable single-story buildings that once housed them could not claim any historic significance, they were popular haunts that gave the area its character… »

Rob Reiner's Son Nick Reiner: I Lived on the Streets Battling Drug Addiction

20 April 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Nick Reiner was packed off to his first rehab facility around his 15th birthday.

Grimm season 5 episode 16 review: The Believer

Grimm season 5 takes on the world of evangelical preaching in its latest comic-tinged episode...

This review contains spoilers.

5.16 The Believer

First off, some good news for fans of Grimm: NBC has revealed that the show will be returning for a sixth season later this year, yay! It’s good to see the network supporting our favourite fairytale police procedural.

This week’s encounter with the Wesen world features an evangelical preacher who channels his inner Furis Rubian for his own ends. An accidental death leads Hank and Nick to the preacher’s door, and predictably we encounter large doses of religious fervour, delusion, betrayal and greed.

Being forced to deal with religious nut-jobs seems to bring out the snark in our favourite detectives, with Wu in particular delivering new levels of sarcasm when confronted with the case.

“What is this, some type of circus?” asks Hank »

‘Everything Is Copy’: Jacob Bernstein Talks Nora Ephron’s Legacy and His Documentary Debut

21 March 2016 2:03 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After Nora Ephron died in 2012, her son Jacob Bernstein knew he wanted to tell the story she never told. That mission became his first documentary feature, “Everything Is Copy,” which debuted at the New York Film Festival last year and premieres tonight on HBO.

Ephron’s life was famously well documented in her essays, books and even through certain biographical details that slipped into her films: the way Sally orders at restaurants in “When Harry Met Sally,” worshiping at the culinary altar of Julia Child in “Julie and Julia” and the sibling dynamics of “Hanging Up” — to name a few.

As Bernstein explains, this instinct to share intimate aspects of her private life in a public fashion can be traced back to a three-word mantra passed on to Ephron from her screenwriter mother, Phoebe Wolkind: “Everything is copy.” But when it came to the fatal disease that took her life, »

Everything is Copy: Nora Ephron’s Journey in Writing About Her Life

18 March 2016 5:03 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Heartburn. When Harry Met Sally… . Sleepless in Seattle. Julia & Julia.

None of these films would have been had Nora Ephron not wrote—or sometimes directed—them. Ephron wrote articles for the New York Post, essays for Esquire, scripts for television, and ended up writing several novels and film adaptations of those novels, all that were somehow based on her life. She had a confident and strong attitude that may have been perceived as snarky by some, but intelligent and witted by all. In the years nearing her death, she came to terms with what she had accomplished and did her best to let people know that she loved them, all the while trying to keep her illness a secret from them.

To honor her and her work, her son Jacob Bernstein made Everything is Copy, an HBO documentary that will premiere March 21. The documentary features a number of people prominent in Ephron’s work, »

Jacob Bernstein Talks About Telling His Mother’s Story at the Premiere of Nora Ephron Documentary

15 March 2016 1:24 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A few months after essayist and screenwriter Nora Ephron died of leukemia in 2012, her son, New York Times writer Jacob Bernstein, was doing a profile on documentary filmmaker Lisa Immordino Vreeland. She’d recently finished the film “Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel,” about the well-known fashion editor. When he asked her what her next project was, she said she was considering doing a film on the art collector Peggy Guggenheim, but mentioned there was one other project she might “put in front of that.”

“What’s that?,” Bernstein remembered asking her. “And she said ‘Nora Ephron.’

“And I said, ‘Well, I think there might be someone in front of you.’ ”

At last night’s New York premiere at the Museum of Modern Art of Bernstein’s film “Everything Is CopyNora Ephron: Scripted & Unscripted,” the writer-turned-filmmaker told Variety that he knew he had to get to work »

How TV made us fall back in love with romcoms

17 February 2016 5:35 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It’s years since the romcom’s heyday in cinemas. But now, they’re taking over the small screen – and they’re stranger, spikier and dirtier than ever

Early on in the new Netflix series Love, freshly uncoupled protagonist Gus begins hurling his treasured Blu-ray collection from a moving car. Out goes Pretty Woman. Then Sweet Home Alabama. Finally, the sacred cow of romcom, When Harry Met Sally. It’s not just displacement: Gus is furious with the films themselves. “I just keep believing in this fucking lie that a relationship evolves and gets better. Where do these lies come from?” he raves. “Fucking movies!”

In decades to come, there may well be less people with their expectations warped by romcom consumption. With its Richard Curtis and Nora Ephron-engineered heyday a distant memory, the romcom is in the doldrums. Superhero, animation and action movies dominate the box office; there »

Movie Review: How to Be Single

11 February 2016 9:47 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Are you ready for a Girlfriends’ Night Out? Then grab your cute boots and a couple of tickets for How to be Single. I know, I know, another movie about single twenty-somethings trying to get by while living the dream in New York City. Possibly make some money. Probably don a chic new outfit in every scene. Definitely fall in love. Everyone gets something out of films like this, though: flirtation, tenderness, humor, naïveté, cheese, adventure, sex, city life, architecture, grit, glamour, and detachment amidst a concrete sea of millions of strangers. This has been a done a million times already, right? C’mon: When Harry Met Sally, Hitch, New Year’s Eve, Maid in Manhattan, Sex and the City, That Awkward Moment, and the list goes on and on and on….

Could How to Be Single bring anything new to the table? What could it show an audience that it hasn’t seen before? »

Review: 'How to Be Single' Starring Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, Leslie Mann, Alison Brie and Anders Holm

11 February 2016 12:39 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The romantic comedy is going through a bit of a dry spell. If it were a person, it would be at the stage of eagerly accepting blind dates set up by hopeful aunts or swiping right on everyone on Tinder. Whether it’s part of a general distaste with the genre or the larger movement away from mid-sized movies, the major studios aren’t releasing romantic comedies as frequently as they once were. Last year, the only one with a wide release was “Trainwreck,” which made $110 million on its filthy, funny script and the charm of its star — with only a little traditional romance.

The Perfect Rom-Com, When Harry Met Sally returns to the big screen

8 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Hollywood rom-coms don’t get much better than 1989’s beloved When Harry Met Sally…, a movie that helped define the genre and paved the way for countless (and lesser) knockoffs.

Wisecracking Harry (Billy Crystal) and tightly wound Sally (Meg Ryan) hate each other when they first meet, but over time become platonic best friends.

However, their attraction to each other grows, leading to complications that threaten their friendship.

Director Rob Reiner and screenwriter Nora Ephron based the film on their experiences as divorced people thrust back into the dating world. Ephron spent years honing a script packed with memorable one-liners and, what was groundbreaking at the time, scenes featuring men and women having frank, funny discussions about sex.

It all comes together in the hands of the two leads. Crystal is at his charming best, but his Harry is also smug and emotionally aloof, while girl-next-door Ryan relishes playing a woman beset with insecurities. »

Nora Ephron: The Last Interview and Other Conversations review – candour and wit

17 January 2016 5:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This collection of four interviews with the author and screenwriter from across her career is full of insight, energy and humour

On her death in 2012, the New York Times described Nora Ephron as a writer in the Dorothy Parker mould, “only smarter and funnier”. The Last Interview... brings together four encounters with Ephron: the first shortly after her essay A Few Words About Breasts had established her as the enfant terrible of the New Journalism; the last when she was a grand dame of the screenwriting world, with credits for hits including Sleepless in Seattle and When Harry Met Sally... to her name.

Dubbed the “feminist with a funny bone”, Ephron speaks with native directness, candour and wit about the challenges of forging a career in traditionally male-dominated milieus, alongside childhood, ageing and the best way to cook a turkey. “It takes this huge amount of will and energy for anything to happen to you, »
