There’s Something About Rom-Coms review – this isn't The One

22 August 2016 12:23 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The only real chemistry in Channel 4’s take on straight, white people falling in love was that between talking heads Hugh Grant and Richard Curtis. Plus, Posh Pawn returns

If there is anything more boring than actors saying nice things about other actors, I have yet to be subjected to it. There was quite a lot of that in Channel 4’s There’s Something About Rom-Coms .

There is a definitive documentary to be made on the history and development of romcoms – and what they say about the relationships of their eras – but, like a disappointing love affair, this was not The One. There were brief mentions of films such as Bringing Up Baby and Some Like It Hot, before heading straight to When Harry Met Sally. Annie Hall was dumped.

Emmy Nonfiction Contenders: Portraits of the Artist, from Nora Ephron to Nina Simone

17 August 2016 12:33 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Watching “Everything Is Copy” (HBO), on the life of Nora Ephron, it’s clear that the late writer and filmmaker was willing to use, and to massage, the truth. Of the narrator’s hamster-loving first husband, in her 1983 novel “Heartburn,” Ephron’s own ex-, Dan Greenberg, says the strange trait is an invention; of 1989’s “When Harry Met Sally…” the screenwriter admits that Meg Ryan’s cheerful, high-strung co-lead is based “more or less” on herself. As New Yorker editor David Remnick remarks of Ephron’s inimitable essays, “her voice in print really replicated her voice—almost—in life.”

Indeed, in “Everything Is Copy,” as in the other films nominated for Outstanding Documentary/Nonfiction Special at this year’s Emmys, the subject’s work inhabits this space between the dashes, the “almost” and the “more or less.” It’s where the biographical blurs into the fictional, where fact and craft diverge. »

‘Little Men’ Review: Ira Sachs’ Smallest Movie Might Also Be His Best

3 August 2016 12:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It takes 12 minutes and 23 seconds to run from Jake’s apartment to Tony’s, but there’s an entire world in the space between their two Brooklyn homes. Thirteen-year-old Jake (a sensitive and severely empathetic Theo Taplitz) is a white fourth or fifth generation American kid whose grandfather — the longtime owner of a small apartment building — has just passed away. Tony (Michael Barbieri, a pint-sized Robert De Niro) is the son of a Chilean immigrant, and his mother — a sharp seamstress played by “Gloria” star Paulina García — has rented the retail space on the ground floor of that same apartment building for as long as anyone can remember.

For years, the two families of these new friends have lived in harmony, but the times they are a-changin.’ And when Jake’s father (Greg Kinnear), a struggling actor, inherits the real estate and insists that his tenants actually begin paying their full rent, »

‘Stand by Me’ Oral History: Rob Reiner and Cast on River Phoenix and How Coming-of-Age Classic Almost Didn’t Happen

28 July 2016 12:05 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s been three decades since “Stand By Me” became the little drama that could, catapulting River Phoenix to stardom, establishing Rob Reiner as a director on the rise, and racking up big ticket sales on a paltry budget.

The story of four friends from small town in Oregon, hiking into the countryside in search of the body of a boy who has been hit and killed by a train, is an unlikely coming-of-age tale. Yet in Reiner’s sensitive hands, it becomes a meditation on mortality — one that transcends its 1950s setting to have a universal appeal.

Stand By Me” is unique in other ways. For one thing, it rivals “The 400 Blows” in its ability to evoke complex characterizations from young actors. Not only Phoenix as spiritual leader Chris Chambers, but co-stars Wil Wheaton as sensitive Gordie Lachance, Jerry O’Connell as wisecracking Vern Tessio, and Corey Feldman as hot-tempered Teddy Duchamp, »

Meg Ryan’s directorial debut Ithaca gets a trailer and poster

27 July 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After working in Hollywood for over three decades, primarily as an actress, Meg Ryan has finally decided to take a step behind the camera to make her directorial debut with Ithaca, an adaptation of William Saroyan’s 1943 book The Human Comedy. The first trailer and new poster for the film have been released and can both be seen below…

Ryan rose to fame in the mid-to-late 80s with roles in such now-classics as Top Gun and When Harry Met Sally and continued her success in the 90s with Sleepless in SeattleCourage Under Fire and You’ve Got Mail. Her most famous performances are generally considered to be those alongside Tom Hanks, who, as a matter of fact, has a role in the film. Those expecting to see a lot of Hanks when they go to the theaters should temper their expectations, however, as he is only briefly in the »

Denise Richards: examining her recent straight-to-dvd movies

17 July 2016 3:10 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Jul 19, 2016

From Blonde And Blonder and You Stupid Man, through to Edmond: we go through the recent straight-to-dvd films of Denise Richards...

So far in this series of pieces that look at the straight-to-dvd or VOD movies of some of our favourite actors who have fallen on hard times, we’ve only looked at men (to date: Bruce Willis, Nicolas Cage, John Cusack and John Travolta). That’s because, mostly, actresses find themselves almost completely out of the game once they hit 30ish – an unnecessary full stop that a lot of us would like to see removed in the future.

Denise Richards, sadly, is no different. After marrying a man she found herself in an abusive relationship with, her career climb stumbled and she was forced back down into TV roles, where she’s currently still putting in the hours.

Richards had a sparkling, American Dream-like start in life. »

On this day in pop culture history: the first ‘X-Men’ movie opened in theaters

14 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

16 years ago today was (arguably) the beginning of the modern superhero movie era. Even if you give that distinction to Spider-Man or Iron Man, it’s undeniable that the first X-Men movie paved the way for the proliferation of caped heroes in Hollywood today. In 2000, the only other superhero movies released were negatively received comedies The Specials and Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger IV, and M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable — a superhero movie in a time before they could be baldfaced superhero movies. Now, everyone wants in on the superhero genre, which is now producing the buzziest and most lucrative blockbusters of 2016. The ninth and most recent X-Men movie, Apocalypse, ultimately delivered disappointing numbers in the ever-more-crowded superhero line-up, but that didn’t stop Fox from ordering a pilot for what looks to be a series based in the X-Men world.

Comedians taking on Donald Trump via social media are a dime a dozen, but when a famous father-son duo does, it’s worth noting. Legendary comic Carl Reiner and his son, director Rob Reiner, engaged in an online exchange this week that could best be described as a Trump Twitter takedown. Also Read: Did Billy Crystal Take a Jab at Donald Trump in Muhammad Ali Eulogy?

'City Slickers': 10 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the Hit Comedy

6 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's hard to imagine being nostalgic for a midlife crisis. Nonetheless, it's been 25 years since Billy Crystal conceived of, produced, and starred in the funniest midlife-crisis movie ever. A quarter-century after the release of "City Slickers" (on June 7, 1991), fans remember it fondly for its story of three tenderfoot cowpokes out of their depth, for Jack Palance's wonderfully hard-bitten trail boss, and for generating one of the most memorable moments in Oscar history.

In honor of the film's 25th anniversary, we've rounded up these little-known "City Slickers" facts.

1. Crystal came up with the idea for the movie while watching a TV show about middle-aged men going on life-changing fantasy vacations. He borrowed the plot from John Wayne's "The Cowboys," reimagined it as a comedy, and hired screenwriters Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel to craft it into a screenplay. The two writers were too lazy to visit an actual dude »

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 »

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
