Charles Saatchi: My love affair with Orson Welles

29 December 2011 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Hollywood's treatment of Citizen Kane's maker is no surprise from an industry that gives Oscars to so many dud films

• Charles Saatchi's 109 movies not nominated for best picture

How do you handle failure? I handle failure very badly. Bitterly. Indignantly. Girly tears. I once saw a three-hour BBC interview with Orson Welles, and if it is possible to fall for a man just from seeing him on the telly, Mr Welles has had me as his love slave since.

Welles had manifold reasons to be bitter about life's setbacks, not the least being that his unquestioned prowess as a film-maker didn't stop Hollywood treating him like a disease. After years of having to panhandle for backing to fund his film projects – all unwanted by the studios, all later to be recognised as exquisite jewels – he eventually had to rely on appearing in TV commercials, endorsing wines or Spanish sherry, »

Best of 2011: Viral video edition!

16 December 2011 7:00 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The first 10 years of the new millennium brought us Christian the Lion, Antoine Dodson, and some formerly floppy-haired Canadian kid you may have heard of named Justin Bieber, so how has the first year of this decade shaped up, virally speaking? Well, let’s see… hydrangeas were pronounced hateful (or, to be more accurate, loathsome), Beauty and the Beast got the West Hollywood treatment, a respected newsman collapsed into giggles over a Frenchman’s urine, a teen shot to stardom by serenading a day of the week, and… well, we could go on and on. Instead, we’ve posted all »

Watch: Funny & Charming Trailer Arrives For 'Five-Year Engagement' Starring Jason Segel & Emily Blunt

7 December 2011 12:15 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Need to wash the stink out of your eyes that was "The Three Stooges" trailer? Give "Five-Year Engagement" a spin, the promising rom-com from the unstoppable team of Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller (we'll politely overlook "Gulliver's Travels"). But this film marks a re-team of sorts from that terrible 3D family movie, with Stoller, Segel and Emily Blunt all back for something much more deserving of their talents. Described as being in the vein of "Annie Hall" or "When Harry Met Sally" (tonally, it feels more like the latter), the film chronicles a couple whose engagement winds up being spread across five years. In a rather pleasant twist from the usual Hollywood formula, it isn't the guy who is commitment shy, but rather the woman who is chasing a career and doesn't want to get tied down just yet. Segel and Blunt get on like gangbusters (with the latter proving, »

The Art of Getting By – Blu-ray review

6 December 2011 8:22 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Blu-ray Review

The Art of Getting By

Directed by: Gavin Wiesen

Cast: Freddie Highmore, Emma Roberts

Running Time: 1 hour 25 min

Rating: PG-13

Due Out: November 29, 2011

Plot: An existential, mopey high school student (Highmore) meets a beautiful girl (Roberts) and starts to show more interest in life.

Who’S It For? Mopey high school students.

Movie:

George (Highmore) is intelligent (we know this because he’s always reading) and rich (though not as rich as some classmates, so that’s supposed to make him relatable) but despite getting the kind of education and chances that many kids dream of, he skips classes, ignores homework, and generally behaves like he’s above it all. One day he starts talking to Sally (Roberts), a beautiful girl who’s doesn’t sound like she’s in high school. She has a laissez-faire attitude about men and sexual relationships that you would expect in a »

Happy 50th Birthday, Meg Ryan

19 November 2011 7:18 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

She rose to fame just before Julia Roberts who rose to fame just before Sandra Bullock. Together the three of them inarguably ruled the Romantic Comedy genre for a full decade back when, and this is an important note, the genre was producing regular classics. (Look at any modern RomCom Queen's filmography and try to find films half as good; the qualitative dropoff is more like a horror movie!) 

Cut to 2011 and the other two members of America's Sweetheart Trinity: 1990s Division are still headliners and now Oscar Winners. So what happened to Meg Ryan and why did goodwill not follow her or rescue her as it did her royal sisters in big screen love and laughter? For a good long while people wondered when her Erin Brockovich would arrive. Eventually they stopped wondering but why couldn't she even stumble onto her own The Blind Side

It isn't a simple matter of talent. »

Happy 50th Birthday, Meg Ryan!

19 November 2011 6:16 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Former American sweetheart Meg Ryan might not be the star she once was when she was breaking our hearts in classic romantic comedies like When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless In Seattle but there's no doubt she deserves her place in Hollywood history.

Nowadays, she's more famous for her private life and her romances than she is for film roles, but she has already amassed some iconic characters including orgasm-faking Sally Albright (When Harry Met Sally), Annie Reed (Sleepless in Seattle), Alice Green (When a Man Loves a Woman) and Kathleen Kelly (You've Got Mail).

Away from the big screen, she's a mum of two, the former wife of Dennis Quaid and rocker John Mellencamp's current squeeze.

And now she is turning 50 on Saturday, it's time to salute magical Meg.

Here's 10 things you may not have known about Ms. Ryan:

- She provided the voice for Russian royal Anastasia in the hit 1997 animated film about the Russian royal.

- She has played Kate, Catherine, Katharine or Kathleen in five movies, Maggie in three.

- Savage Garden's song All Around Me is a tribute to her, inspired by songwriter Daniel Jones' celebrity crush.

- She shares a birthday with Jodie Foster.

- She was offered the role of Clarice Starling in the movie The Silence of the Lambs, but the part eventually went to Jodie Foster.

- She has starred alongside Tom Hanks or ex-husband Dennis Quaid in six movies - Sleepless in Seattle, Joe Versus the Volcano, You've Got Mail, Innerspace, D.O.A and Flesh & Bone.

- Meg Ryan is an anagram of 'Germany'.

- She has played Candice Bergen's daughter twice, in Rich & Famous and The Women.

- She has an asteroid named after her - 8353 Megryan.

- She turned down two roles in romantic films that went on to become box office hits for Julia Roberts - Pretty Woman and Steel Magnolias. Meg also turned down the lead in Ghost. »

Billy Crystal Returns to Host the Oscars

11 November 2011 9:06 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Billy Crystal has been confirmed as the new host of the 2012 Oscars following Eddie Murphy's decision to step down. The When Harry Met Sally star, who has hosted the Oscars eight times, emerged as the popular choice to replace Murphy hours after the Dreamgirls star announced his resignation on Wednesday (09 Nov. 2011). And it has taken new producer Brian Grazer just 24 hours to sign Crystal up for his first Academy Awards hosting gig since 2003. In a tweet on Thursday (10 Nov. 2011), Crystal joked, "Am doing the Oscars so the young woman in the pharmacy will stop asking my name when I pick up my prescriptions. Looking forward to the show." The funnyman was expected to be named the host of the 84th Oscars after making an appearance on the 2011 telecast to present a tribute to Bob Hope. And earlier this year (2011), Crystal told reporters he felt "itchy" after his Academy Awards »

Jack and Jill

11 November 2011 5:01 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Jack and Jill

Directed by: Dennis Dugan

Cast: Adam Sandler, Katie Holmes, Al Pacino

Running Time: 1 hr 33 mins

Rating: PG

Release Date: November 11, 2011

Plot: Jack Sadelstein (Sandler) finds his twin sister Jill (Sandler) annoying. So, when she keeps extending her stay over the holidays, he gets more upset. But then, Al Pacino (himself) is interested in Jill. She doesn’t feel the same way, but Jack needs Al for the big Dunkin’ Donuts commercial.

Who’S It For? Think for a second what you consider the worst Sandler movie. If you still liked that, then see this. And no, your answer for worst can’t be Punch Drunk Love.

Expectations: Ugh. I wasn’t looking forward to this one. It seemed like a mock-trailer from Funny People or a weak SNL sketch. Perhaps it will have some of the charm of the great SNL Gap sketch? Actually, that’s a pretty big hope. »

Crystal To Host The Oscars

10 November 2011 5:36 PM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Billy Crystal has been confirmed as the new host of the 2012 Oscars following Eddie Murphy's decision to step down.

The When Harry Met Sally star, who has hosted the Oscars eight times, emerged as the popular choice to replace Murphy hours after the Dreamgirls star announced his resignation on Wednesday.

And it has taken new producer Brian Grazer just 24 hours to sign Crystal up for his first Academy Awards hosting gig since 2003.

In a tweet on Thursday, Crystal joked, "Am doing the Oscars so the young woman in the pharmacy will stop asking my name when I pick up my prescriptions. Looking forward to the show."

The funnyman was expected to be named the host of the 84th Oscars after making an appearance on the 2011 telecast to present a tribute to Bob Hope.

And earlier this year, Crystal told reporters he felt "itchy" after his Academy Awards cameo - and he would be prepared to consider a return to the Oscars stage as host.

He said, "It's always fun. It's really hard, but maybe one or two more times... They know where I am."

Officially announcing the news on Thursday afternoon in Los Angeles, the City Slickers star said, "Some of the best moments of my career have happened on the Oscar stage. I am thrilled to be back there."

Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president Tom Sherak is thrilled to welcome Crystal back to the Oscars: "He's a comic legend and Oscar icon, and it feels good to have him back where he belongs."

Grazer, who replaced Brett Ratner as the co-producer of the Academy Awards on Wednesday, adds, "Like so many others, I've been eager to see Billy host again."

The Oscars will take place on 26 February. »

Crystal To Host The Oscars?

10 November 2011 2:46 PM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Billy Crystal appears to be ready to save the 2012 Oscars following Eddie Murphy's decision to step down as host after posting a comical tweet about the drama.

The When Harry Met Sally star, who has hosted the Oscars eight times, emerged as the popular choice to replace Murphy hours after the Dreamgirls star announced his resignation on Wednesday following producer Brett Ratner's departure.

And it seems Crystal's ready to take charge of his first Academy Awards since 2003.

In a tweet on Thursday, Crystal joked, "Am doing the Oscars so the young woman in the pharmacy will stop asking my name when I pick up my prescriptions. Looking forward to the show."

Sources close to the Oscars tell the Los Angeles Times that Crystal will host the big show in February, but publicists for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have yet to make the news official.

The funnyman was expected to be named the host of the 84th Oscars after making an appearance on the 2011 telecast to present a tribute to Bob Hope.

Earlier this year, Crystal told reporters he felt "itchy" after his Academy Awards cameo - and he would be prepared to consider a return to the Oscars stage as host.

He said, "It's always fun. It's really hard, but maybe one or two more times? I don't know. They know where I am."

Ratner and co-producer Don Mischer hired Murphy in September instead - but now Crystal's wish may have just come true. »

Billy Crystal's Much a-Tweet About the Oscars

10 November 2011 2:12 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Oh, technology! While we're all over here trying to get the Muppets their first Oscar gig, Billy Crystal pulls the rug out from under everyone and Tweets -- from his iPad, no less -- that he's got the job.

Or does he?

The jokester from "When Harry Met Sally" and "Monsters Inc." wrote, "Am doing the Oscars so the young woman in the pharmacy will stop asking my name when I pick up my prescriptions. Looking forward to the show." As NextMovie's exec editor Kevin Polowy quipped, "Good reasoning. It's gotta suck just being known as 'The Viagra Guy.' Good luck!"

However, Jarett Wieselman at ETOnline quickly responded. "Academy Award producers tell @ETonlineAlert that Billy Crystal's Tweet was just a joke. No host picked yet," he wrote.

Although Deadline is reporting that Crystal is set to host, there's no direct confirmation whether or not Crystal was joking or »

Billy Crystal will host the Oscars for the eleventy billionth (or ninth) time

10 November 2011 1:15 PM, PST | Nerve | See recent Nerve news »

Hot on the heels of Eddie Murphy's announcement that he would be bowing out as Oscars host this year, actor/comedian Billy Crystal has Tweeted that he will be taking over Murphy's hosting duties. "Am doing the Oscars so the young woman in the pharmacy will stop asking my name when I pick up my prescriptions," Crystal Tweeted. "Looking forward to the show." Although a spokesperson for the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences would not confirm or deny Crystal's Tweet, two sources have unofficially confirmed that the When Harry Met Sally... star will, in fact, host the 84th Academy Awards in February. After the crash-course collision of awkwardness and mediocrity that was Anne Hathaway's and James Franco's Oscar hosting gig last year, the bar isn't set too high for Crystal, who has already hosted the Oscars eight [...] »

Another day, another headline-making story surrounding the already-turbulent 2012 Oscars. This time, the story has a more safe and familiar ring to it: Billy Crystal has officially signed on to host the show.

Crystal spilled the beans via Twitter on Thursday afternoon (November 10).

"Am doing the Oscars so the young woman in the pharmacy will stop asking my name when I pick up my prescriptions," he wrote. "Looking forward to the show."

Following Crystal's tweet, the Academy released a statement confirming the hosting news. "Some of the best moments of my career have happened on the Oscar stage," Crystal said in the statement. "I am thrilled to be back there."

Rob Reiner Working on Heist Story 'Airtight' and Also a Prop 8 Film

8 November 2011 3:24 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

When you look back at the films of director Rob Reiner, the man really has done it all rather successfully. The mockumentary comedy This is Spinal Tap, the childhood favorite fantasy The Princess Bride, the classic romantic comedy When Harry Met Sally, the courtroom drama A Few Good Men, the Stephen King penned horror thriller Misery, and the lovely and underrated coming-of-age romance Flipped all hail from Reiner's directing talents. Now THR reports that the director is setting his sights on something he hasn't done before: a heist film called Airtight and a drama surrounding Proposition 8. More details below! For those not familiar with Proposition 8, it's not a sequel to J.J. Abrams' film Super 8, but rather was a ballot proposition and constitutional amendment passed in California that attempted to only allow marriage between a man and a woman to be recognized by the state of California, effectively disregarding »

We need to talk about caffeine: great coffee scenes

3 November 2011 5:07 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Coffee has got many a movie made, and kept many a scene on the boil. From Michael Mann to Jean-Luc Godard, David Thomson filters the meaning of the key bean-related moments

There comes a night in Michael Mann's film Heat (1995) when the police detective (Al Pacino) decides he should have a little chat with the criminal he suspects is planning a major heist (Robert De Niro). Your first instinct may be to wonder: does every criminal enterprise in Los Angeles qualify for this friendly heart-to-heart where the law explains to the outlaw just how serious the crime and its consequences will be – is it a little like having your Miranda rights read to you? Or, is it simply that a big movie with Pacino and De Niro had to bring its firepower together, in the way Friedrich Schiller could not resist improving on history with a meeting between Queen »

My favourite film: Beautiful Girls

3 November 2011 5:59 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In our writers' favourite film series, Michael Hann and family find solace in Ted Demme's flawed but incisive ensemble drama

• Not pretty enough? Post your own review of Demme's Beautiful Girls – or leave a comment in the thread

You could argue that Ted Demme's Beautiful Girls is little more than an artfully arranged array of Hollywood comedy-drama archetypes. High school reunion? Yes. Bunch of tight childhood friends on divergent paths? Yes. Plus you've got unattainable girls, commitment issues, and the need to make a big decision that will change everything forever. And there are the character archetypes, too: the smooth lothario whose life is really a sham, the deluded jerk, the square, the happy loser, the cool but not too cool guy we're set up to identify with, the kinda kooky but great girl we're meant to fall in love with, the sassy best friend, the glamorous outsider with the model looks. »

Carrie Fisher: Hollywood confidential | Observer profile

Ect, Michael Jackson, James Blunt, her abiding love-hate for Princess Leia…the new memoir from the actress, novelist and supreme storyteller could be her most engrossing work yet

Carrie Fisher is one of cinema's most unusual characters – and perhaps Hollywood's ultimate survivor. Thrust into the spotlight by the unexpected success of Star Wars in the late 1970s, she has always had an uneasy relationship with fame. The daughter of "America's sweethearts" Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, she has never known an ordinary life. "You might say I'm the product of Hollywood inbreeding," she writes. "When two celebrities mate, something like me is the result."

Fisher will be in the headlines again in the next few weeks. Her latest memoir, Shockaholic will cover, as part of her routinely vivid life, her friendship with the late Michael Jackson. She met Jackson through the woman who was briefly her stepmother, Elizabeth Taylor, who'll »

Harry Connick Jnr: "Why Would He Call Richard Gere, Not Me?"

17 October 2011 7:00 AM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

“I’m not a movie star. People know me, but they don’t necessarily know what they know me for. I get recognised, but it’s not like Justin Bieber. It’s a nice thing, people are cool.”

And he’s absolutely right. Harry Connick Jnr is just one of those names that’s been around forever, but doesn’t attach itself to any one project. He was the smooth vocal chords on the sountrack of When Harry Met Sally, but he wasn’t in it. He appeared in Independence Day but he’s not Will Smith. Is it because he’s a singer as well, that he defies a category?

“I would say I’m right in the middle,” he decides, when asked to position himself on the singer/actor spectrum. “Because when I’m acting, I’m in a different place, singing is the last thing on my mind, »
