Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Stone (Thrillingly) Assassinates Truth While Investigating Kennedy Assassination

14 May 2015 6:22 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'JFK' movie with Kevin Costner as Jim Garrison 'JFK' assassination movie: Gripping political drama gives added meaning to 'Rewriting History' If it's an Oliver Stone film, it must be bombastic, sentimental, clunky, and controversial. With the exception of "clunky," JFK is all of the above. It is also riveting, earnest, dishonest, moving, irritating, paranoid, and, more frequently than one might expect, outright brilliant. In sum, Oliver Stone's 1991 political thriller about a determined district attorney's investigation of the assassination of U.S. president John F. Kennedy is a slick piece of propaganda that mostly works both dramatically and cinematically. If only some of the facts hadn't gotten trampled on the way to film illustriousness. With the exception of John Williams' overemphatic score – Oliver Stone films need anything but overemphasis – JFK's technical and artistic details are put in place to extraordinary effect. Joe Hutshing and Pietro Scalia's editing »

‘Empire’: So Who’s the Daddy?

- Michael Arceneaux

On last night’s Empire, boos ran away, baby mamas came back, and for a minute there, I was wondering if Madea was going to pop up out of nowhere to tell Lucious about her mixtape on DatPiff. It was entertaining for sure, but a little crazy even by this show’s standards. Gather ‘round, though, beloveds, we must talk this out.

1. Why didn’t Cookie know anything about bipolar disorder?

Considering Cookie’s spent a considerable amount of time in prison, she missed a lot of important things: Destiny’s Child; Destiny’s Child’s breakup; Destiny’s Child second breakup; Beyoncé proving she is literally destiny’s child as a solo act; Destiny’s Child getting back together; everyone in Destiny’s Child going back solo. She also seemed to miss that episode of Oprah in which actress Jenifer Lewis aka everyone’s Black mama »

31 Things We Learned from Tony Scott’s Revenge Commentary

16 February 2015 8:45 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Kevin Costner has a new film opening this week, and I’ve already forgotten about it. That’s probably a bit too harsh as I’ll watch anything starring Costner, and he’s also someone who’s starred in more movies I find it impossible to turn off once started than anyone else — No Way Out, The Untouchables, Tin Cup, Silverado, Field of Dreams, Open Range, The Bodyguard (yeah I said it) — but the man’s made some unfortunate choices in recent years. (Although I will fight you over the underseen The New Daughter and its kick-ass ending.) Back in 1990, near the height of his career, Costner joined forces with Tony Scott — a director at the equivalent peak of his own career — to deliver a dark thriller about lust and consequences in rural Mexico. Revenge tanked at the box-office, but Costner and Scott quickly got back into Hollywood’s good graces with Dances with Wolves and Days of Thunder »

Kevin Costner on Bobbi Kristina: "I Hope That God Opens Her Eyes and Lets Her Breathe"

11 February 2015 7:49 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Actor Kevin Costner was a close friend of Whitney Houston's since before the two shared the spotlight in the popular film The Bodyguard.

"We understand absolutely the pressure that the family's under," Costner told Et. "We want her to have a second chance. That's what we want for her. And if Bobbi could maybe retrace her steps, she'd maybe want a second chance at this, because life is precious. You get this one time, and sometimes in getting a second chance we're able to make the most of our lives. That's what we hope for ... If you pray out there, that's what you pray for. We pray for all our children out there who somehow fall off. It's so easy to do."

Taylor Swift Scored a Billboard Chart Milestone With 1989

4 February 2015 8:23 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

For the tenth nonconsecutive week on Billboard's 200 chart, Taylor Swift's 1989 has surged to No. 1. The site underlines that Swift's the second woman in history to have multiple albums reach ten weeks at the top. T. Swift joins Whitney Houston, who notched the milestone with three albums: her eponymous debut (1986), Whitney (1987), and The Bodyguard soundtrack (1992–93). Swift's other double-digit album was Fearless, which reigned as No. 1 for 11 weeks from 2008–09. Swift nailed the feat after tallying 71,000 1989 sales last week — a figure that's not particularly high for a No. 1 contender, which is usually in the six-figure ballpark. (But — calm down — it was enough for history.) The other musicians in this elite chart club include the Beatles (with four albums), the Kingston Trio (three), Elvis Presley (three), Henry Mancini (two), and the Monkees (two).
