What's the Most Popular Movie Title in History?

29 December 2010 4:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Movie News, Cinematical

Once upon a time, there was an addictive little game called Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon (or The Oracle of Bacon). Surely you've heard of it? The '90s game was simple, but brilliant -- just about any and every actor (alive or dead) in Hollywood could be linked to the 'Footloose' star by only six degrees. It sounded impossible -- yet everyone seemed to be linked. Even Charlie Chaplin! See, he starred in 'Limelight' in 1952, which had Norman Lloyd, who appeared in 'The Age of Innocence' in 1993. That film also featured Pasquale Cajano, who was in the 1996 film 'Sleepers' with -- you guessed it -- Kevin Bacon.

But now there's a new challenge out there proving to be just as difficult -- find the most commonly used movie title.

Winona Ryder Regrets Ditching Bra

29 November 2010 1:49 AM, PST | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Winona Ryder hates wearing bras. The 39-year-old actress admits one of her biggest fashion mistakes came when she refused to wear underwear underneath the lace dress she wore in "Reality Bites" because she finds the garments too restrictive.

"I made the huge mistake of not wearing a bra. When we were trying it on I wasn't moving around," she said. "I was young and bras give me backache, you know? The first thing I do when I get home is take off my bra - but I did sort of regret it because I didn't realize how it was going to look."

Though Winona hates wearing bras, she was happy to don a tight-fitting corset for her role in "The Age of Innocence" as it put her in the right frame of mind for the film. She explained to Total Film magazine, "The corsets are a tremendous help to the performance, »

Ryder Felt Pain Through Age Of Innocence Corset

26 November 2010 11:01 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Winona Ryder has credited her tight corsets with fuelling her performance in The Age Of Innocence by allowing her to channel her character's emotional turmoil.

The actress insists her restrictive costume allowed her to give an authentic performance as a socialite engaged to a lawyer, played by Daniel Day-Lewis, in the 1993 period drama.

And despite feeling uncomfortable throughout the entire shoot, Ryder admits she is grateful for the painful garments.

She tells Britain's Total Film magazine, "The corsets are a tremendous help to the performance, because you're playing a repressed person and you can feel the pain that they endured. My waist had to be 19 inches and they had to measure me every day. I would be on the floor and they would pull the strings until it was 19 inches.

"Daniel would wear his clothes home, he was very in character and I was like, 'You have no idea the pain I'm in right now!' But if I did it again I would want it the same way because it made my performance." »

Top hot Irish American female stars over 50 - See Photos (IrishCentral)

25 November 2010 7:13 AM, PST | IrishCentral | See recent IrishCentral news »

See Photo - click here Having seen the list of’s Irish hunks over 50 I thought I should put together a similar list to show that the ladies are just a scrumptious when it comes to the post 50 age category. In fact, so much so that you’ll be surprised that some of these ladies even qualify for our list. Michelle Pfeiffer Pfeiffer first garnered mainstream attention in 1983 with her appearance in “Scarface” . She rose to prominence during the late 1980s and early 1990s, giving a series of critically-acclaimed performances in the films “Dangerous Liaisons”, “The Fabulous Baker Boys”, “Frankie and Johnny” and The Age of Innocence” as well as appearing as Catwoman in “Batman Returns”. Pfeiffer appeared on the cover of People's first "50 Most Beautiful People in the World" issue in 1990, and again in 1999, having made the list a record six times during the decade.[3] Susan Sarandon »

Flix Picks: The Age of Innocence

17 November 2010 5:41 AM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Flix Picks [1] is a new semi-regular feature that explores the depths of my Netflix queue and allows me the chance to catch up with some older films that I’ve not yet seen. When thinking of Martin Scorsese films, most people conjure up images of gangsters, crime, and physical brutality. While the director might be most well-known for those stories, he’s covered far more ground than that material, trying his hand at anything from existential comedy in After Hours to biopics like The Aviator, and soon even sci-fi with Hugo Cabret. With that idea in mind I decided to catch up with one of Scorsese’s lesser talked about films, The Age of Innocence, to see what he could bring to a period piece. These types of films usually aren’t my favorite stories to watch, but, based on the talent involved, I thought this one was worth a look. »

Start at the top and work your way down

• Introduction to The Great Movies III

You'd be surprised how many people have told me they're working their way through my books of Great Movies one film at a time. That's not to say the books are definitive; I loathe "best of" lists, which are not the best of anything except what someone came up with that day. I look at a list of the "100 greatest horror films," or musicals, or whatever, and I want to ask the maker, "but how do you know?" There are great films in my books, and films that are not so great, but there's no film here I didn't respond strongly to. That's the reassurance I can offer.

I believe good movies are a civilizing force. They allow us to empathize with those whose lives are different than our own. I like to say they open windows in our box of space and time. »

Flashback: Best of the 90s (Pt. 2)

30 August 2010 11:09 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Start with Pt 1 of this 90s Flashback... if you're confused about what's going on. To make a long story short, I'm excerpting items from an old zine I wrote in Spring 2000, during the first year of the website. Yes, I was originally juggling too many things. Why that's not like me At All.

We previously covered my dated lists for Actors, Supporting Actresses and Supporting Actors -- lists I don't agree with in full anymore (though the supporting actresses list I quite like still). So now we move on to Picture and Actress.

Best Actress

Top ten chronological order. What follows is original text from the magazine, with the winner in bold text. I had purposefully excluded 1999 which is why you don't see Kate Winslet for Holy Smoke or Hilary Swank for Boy's Don't Cry though here's what I wrote about Swank in that same zine...

I'm rooting for Swank on Oscar night. »

Pitt, Cooper Score A "Brownsville Girl"

29 August 2010 3:39 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Brad Pitt has been offered a role while Scott Cooper ("Crazy Heart") is being considered to direct "Brownsville Girl", a film based on the eleven-minute Bob Dylan song for Winkler Films reports Pajiba.

The story follows a man who leads a life of theft and murder over two decades in an effort to hold on to the woman he loves. Jay Cocks ("The Age Of Innocence," "Gangs Of New York") apparently penned the script at the behest of Dylan himself.

Pitt and Cooper were linked to "The Hatfields And The McCoys" earlier this year, Cooper is also considering the family drama "Lie Down in Darkness". »

Their Best Role: Winona Ryder

23 August 2010 10:02 AM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

It's hard to believe that Winona Ryder is 38-years-old. It seems like just a short time ago that she was playing a high school girl in Heathers or Edward Scissorhands. From there, Ryder's career seemed to take off -- she landed memorable parts as Mina Harker in Francis Ford Coppola's lush but narratively flawed Dracula, won a Golden Globe for another costume drama in The Age of Innocence, and got a Best Actress nod for her work in Little Women. Ryder's resume is filled with memorable roles, but unfortunately it was overshadowed at least to some degree by her arrest in 2001 for shoplifting over $5,000 worth of items from a Beverly Hills Saks Fifth Avenue. After that public humiliation, the actress essentially disappeared for four years. We're hearing more from her now, though -- with roles in several upcoming films including Ron Howard's comedy The Dilemma and Darren Aronofsky »

Blu-Ray Review: ‘The Leopard’ Basks in the Bittersweet Glow of Nostalgia

7 July 2010 8:12 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – Many great films have been made about the changing of eras and the passing of power from one generation to another. But few are as masterfully conceived and as lovingly detailed as Italian filmmaker Luchino Visconti’s 1963 classic “The Leopard.” Gorgeously restored on Blu-Ray, this near-masterpiece was sliced and diced by Hollywood for American audiences, but is now presented in its original three-hour running time.

As one of the founders of Italian neorealism, Visconti is well known for his depictions of upper-class life, which are somewhat inspired by his own upbringing in one of Italy’s wealthiest families. Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa’s 1958 novel of “The Leopard,” published a few months after the author’s death, was an ideal fit for Visconti’s stylistic and thematic obsessions. The story centers on members of the Sicilian aristocracy during the Risorgimento (Italian unification) of the early 1860s. The aristocracy’s delicate »

The Innocents.

30 April 2010 8:54 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jose here to celebrate one of the greatest acting duets of all time, who today also happen to share a birthday.

In Martin Scorsese's The Age of Innocence Michelle Pfeiffer (52 today) and Daniel Day-Lewis (53 today) play doomed lovers in 1870's New York City. She's the Countess Olenska, an outcast returning to American society where she's met with quiet hostility and he plays the reserved Newland Archer, who happens to be engaged to the Countess' cousin (Winona Ryder).

Marty fills the movie with nuances that had been uncharacteristic of his work at the time but works his visionary camera moves and Thelma Schoonmaker's vibrant editing seamlessly into a plot that usually would've been done in a less "flashy" style. What we get with this technique is a perfect embodiment of Edith Wharton's tale of repression in contrast with the modern NYC Marty eventually captured in his earlier films. »

Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen May Go for 'Hugo Cabret'

14 March 2010 9:40 PM, PDT | CinemaSpy | See recent CinemaSpy news »

After a few detours, director Martin Scorsese is getting around to directing The Invention of Hugo Cabret; indeed, it looks like he could have a couple of actors lined up for parts.

According to Deadline, Scorsese is in talks with Sacha Baron Cohen and Ben Kingsley for the movie, which is based on a children’s book by Brian Selznick. The Invention of Hugo Cabret revolves around a 12-year-old orphan who lives in the walls of a Paris train station circa 1930. The Oscar-winning Kingsley, who recently worked with Scorsese on Shutter Island, is said to in discussions to play George Melies, the famous silent filmmaker who plays an important role in the story.

As for Cohen, who starred in the films Bruno and Borat, and who appeared as a supporting cast member in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, he is rumored to be up for the role of the station master. »

Home Furnishing for the Movie Fan with Cash to Burn

16 February 2010 9:03 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Have you ever heard of The self-titled "Ultimate Destination for Antiques" holds an impressive assortment of antique furniture in the online world. Why should you care? They also have a huge selection of movie props. I'm not talking about auction items, or clothing that's touched your favorite actor's sweaty body -- they sell furniture and decorative pieces. Boring, yes, unless you think of the bigger picture -- being a lucky bugger wealthy enough to furnish your home with cool movie furniture. That would be the life...

Newel not only sells this stuff, they also rent out pieces to a number of productions, which means more bang for your buck -- many pieces have been in multiple films. Some of the antiques are downright astronomical, especially when they're a lot older. Much of the The Age of Innocence lot can run you $30k to $40k. But there's a bronze »

“One for Them”? Scorsese’s “Cape Fear”

15 February 2010 6:49 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Name a happy family in a Martin Scorsese film. Or a stable couple, even. In Cape Fear, the director is asked to update the scenario of J. Lee Thompson’s 1962 thriller, in which the ideal household is terrorized by an evil-incarnate maniac. “One for them, one for me,” Scorsese says of the rotation between personal projects and commercial assignments artists are often forced into. Sandwiched between Goodfellas and The Age of Innocence, this would clearly be “one for them,” the “them” being star Robert De Niro and executive producer Steven Spielberg. As an addition to De Niro’s sadistic rogues gallery and Amblin Entertainment’s portraits of threatened suburbia, the project may have seemed like a sure bet. But Scorsese is too much of a self-consciously anguished aesthete to take a smooth detour into Blockbuster Road. In his documentary A Personal Journey with Martin Scorsese Through American Movies, he would »

Lucas & Scorsese Pay Tribute To Producer Wigan

14 February 2010 6:26 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

George Lucas and Martin Scorsese have paid tribute to beloved British producer Gareth Wigan, who died on Saturday aged 78.

Wigan was credited with steering the success of the first Star Wars in 1977, after serving as a production executive on the sci-fi movie.

He subsequently worked on other films including All That Jazz in 1979 and Alien in the same year, before he was appointed co-vice chairman of the Columbia TriStar Motion Picture Group in the 1990s.

And his death in Los Angeles after a brief illness has shocked Star Wars creator Lucas, who will "always be grateful" for Wigan's support.

Lucas says, “Gareth Wigan was one of the most kind and thoughtful executives I’ve ever worked with. He was a real supporter of creative talent. I’ll never forget the first time he saw Star Wars. It was just Gareth and Alan Ladd Jr. seeing an early cut of the film. Gareth was so moved that he cried. As a young filmmaker facing a lot of skeptics, his genuine love of the film meant the world to me. He was there for me when I needed him and I’ll always be grateful.”

And Scorsese, who worked with Wigan on 1993 movie The Age Of Innocence, also has fond memories of the producer.

He adds, “I’ve often wished we could have worked on another production as I’ve always had great admiration for Gareth’s intelligence, diplomacy and taste.”

Wigan is survived by his wife, Pat Newcomb, four children and seven grandchildren. »

Gareth Wigan dies at 78

13 February 2010 12:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

  Gareth Wigan, widely considered a rare gentleman among studio executives, died at his home in Los Angeles surrounded by his family on Saturday morning after a brief illness. He was 78.

During the course of his career, the London-born Wigan, lean and courtly, was involved with such movies as "Star Wars," "All that Jazz," "Chariots of Fire" and "Sense and Sensibility," while working at Fox, the Ladd Company and Sony, where most recently he oversaw local-language productions, such as "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" for the studio.

"Gareth was an inspirational and passionate leader. His love of movies and filmmakers was as rare and unique as the brilliant films he championed over the last four decades," Amy Pascal, Sony Pictures co-chairman said. "He led by example and while he can never be replicated, his influence on our company and our industry will last forever."

Born December 2, 1931, after graduating from Oxord, Wigan began »
