Catfish – review

18 December 2010 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This modern-day tale of deception, which purports to be a documentary, is one of the year's most intriguing pictures

The most highly regarded American film in a year that has seen the fifth anniversary of YouTube is also the most topical: The Social Network, the story of the creation of Facebook. But just as widely discussed and altogether more controversial is the low-budget movie Catfish, which purports to be a documentary about an encounter involving Facebook between people from very different social backgrounds. It cost something like $30,000 to make, and on a limited release has taken $3m at the box office, which makes it a phenomenon of Blair Witch Project dimensions.

At the centre of Catfish is Yaniv Schulman, known as Nev, a young, New York-based photographer specialising in pictures of dancers. He receives an email from Angela Faccio, a housewife in smalltown Michigan, sending him a naive but rather »

Bill Pullman Joins Torchwood

16 December 2010 6:10 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The actor who starred in such movies as Ruthless People, Sleepless in Seattle, While You Were Sleeping, Spaceballs, Casper, and, of course, Independence Day has joined the cast of the Doctor Who adult spin-off, Torchwood.

Pullman will be playing Oswald Jones, a psychotic murderer and pedophile. Oddly, he’s not a nice guy, defined by the BBC as “repentant yet boiling with lust and rage.”

He should fit in nicely.

The fourth season of Torchwood will be broadcast in the United States on the Starz cable network beginning this summer. »

Gowariker not to helm Buddha anymore : Trade News

13 December 2010 9:38 AM, PST | Bollywood Trade | See recent Bollywood Trade news »

Ashutosh Gowariker, who was to direct Spice Entertainment’s ambitious film Buddha, will not direct the film anymore. The producers are scouting for another director now. The film is quite prestigious for the producers as it has been written by Oscar nominee David Ward, who had earlier written Sleepless in Seattle. »

The Top 10 Alternative Christmas Films!

8 December 2010 4:28 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It’s that time of year again; it’s dark at 4pm, the air is crisp and often below freezing, lights twinkle from every crevice and you’re already sick of hearing Mariah Carey warble “All I Want for Christmas is You”… Yes, it’s Christmas time again and as the festive period draws ever closer, avoiding succumbing to the cheer and joy is a daily battle you’re sure to lose.

Now I’m not a Grinch – in fact I’m far from it, the lead up to the big day is one of my favourite times of the year (I think inside, I’m actually still about 6 and three quarters!) – but the gloss and exaggerated schmaltz of the period can certainly become tiresome very quickly.

Now I don’t want to belittle the sickly saccharine taste of holiday romantic comedies (Love Actually is a classic), the formulaic overcoming »

Baldwin Slams Ephron For Failing To Get Over Divorce

17 November 2010 4:16 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Alec Baldwin has launched a thinly-veiled attack on film director Nora Ephron for failing to get over her painful divorce from 30 years ago - insisting she needs to move on and "forget".

The 30 Rock star was riled after Sleepless In Seattle filmmaker Ephron published an excerpt from her book, I Remember Nothing, in the Huffington Post earlier this month, detailing her divorce from second husband Carl Bernstein.

In the Divorce section of the newspaper, Ephron wrote about her heartache when she discovered famed journalist Bernstein, who she divorced in 1980, cheated on her in the 1970s.

Baldwin wrote his own take on divorce in the newspaper on Saturday - a week after Ephron's writing was published - and used his piece to take aim at the director.

The actor describes a friend's break-up, mirroring Ephron's, and urges a woman called "Dora" to move on from the experience.

He writes, "She simply can not shut up about her anger, her betrayal, her unresolved feelings, and her bottomless contempt for her ex, who has been a devoted and great father to their two wonderful children. Thirty years have passed and this woman, we'll call her Dora, seems incapable of one of the most essential components of a "successful" divorce, and that is forgetting.

"I had a tough divorce. I had a life-shortening custody battle... And, over the past 10 years, I have become a big fan of forgetting. Not only forgiving, but forgetting... if they gave prizes for bashing your ex, (Dora) would have won the Pulitzer, Nobel and screenwriting Oscar."

But Ephron has fired back at Baldwin, taking a dig at his own bitter divorce from Kim Basinger, telling New York Post gossip column PageSix, "I'm afraid that Alec, whom I love, has confused me with Kim Basinger, which is the first time anyone has ever done that." »

Nora Ephron on Her Life, Loves, and Disappointments

6 November 2010 6:12 PM, PDT | The Daily Beast | See recent The Daily Beast news »

The filmmaker and writer was The Daily Beast and Credit Suisse's breakfast guest and chatted about what she's learned in her career, journalism's sexism-and missing historical moments.

Nora Ephron's new book, I Remember Nothing And Other Reflections, hits bookstores next week. On Friday, at a breakfast co-hosted by Credit Suisse and The Daily Beast, Ephron took questions from Tina Brown and a small audience about her illustrious, shape-shifting, constantly surprising career, and the great loves (and great disappointments) in her life.

Related story on The Daily Beast: Inside The New Beast

"On some level, my life has been wasted on me. After all, if I can't remember it, who can?" goes a line in the new book. Ephron's trenchant, witty style shines in her numerous hit films: Heartburn, When Harry Met Sally..., Sleepless in Seattle, Julie & Julia, among many other charming, classic comedies. When Brown asked Ephron about working with Meryl Streep, »

An Affair to Remember: No 13

16 October 2010 3:42 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Leo McCarey, 1957

For those of us who like to immerse ourselves in sense-assaulting love stories, this 1957 Leo McCarey classic is as good as it gets. A relentlessly heart-tugging tale of two soulmates whose love even great tragedy cannot tear asunder, An Affair to Remember tosses and turns the emotions but never descends into schmaltz; it stays compelling – partly down to its smart, surprisingly sassy script, which often holds back when it could go for the cheap weep, but also because it is brought to us by two of the classiest acts in Hollywood history: Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr.

Grant in particular is in devastating form as the charismatic womaniser who is struck down by lovesickness for a woman he believes has rejected him. (It's hard to believe George Clooney didn't spend the 90s watching reruns of this.) Even for those who have never seen it, An Affair holds a »

10, You've Got Mail and Pleasantville Blu-ray's Debut February 1, 2011

8 October 2010 4:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

10, Youve Got Mail and Pleasantville will all make their Blu-ray debuts on February 1, 2011. Each title will be priced at $19.98 Srp and you can take a look at the cover art and special features for each release below:

Blake Edwards' 10, a spicy comedy of manners, morals and midlife crises, captures many moods, sometimes sexy, sometimes thoughtful, sometimes slapstick - but always on target. That target is 42-year-old composer George (Dudley Moore), a man who has everything (including patient singer girlfriend Julie Andrews) - and who may just chuck it all on an obsessive quest for a beautiful woman (Bo Derek) he glimpses en route to her wedding. An iconic crowd-pleaser, 10 propelled the movie careers of Moore and Derek and gave Ravel's Bolero a fiery new romantic context. And it stands as one of its director's richest, most fully realized works.

Top 25 worst first-date movies

25 September 2010 2:39 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

A night of unrestrained passion...or a restraining order? Choose carefully...

25: You’ve Got Mail (1998)

Sleepless in Seattle is a great date movie. It has a great Nat King Cole soundtrack, a cute kid, nice chemistry from Hanks and Ryan – lovely stuff. You’ve Got Mail is not a great date movie. It seems like it has everything – witty interplay amongst the supporting characters, Hanks and Ryan, and books as well – what’s not to like? It’s a trap! You’ve Got Mail was the studio cashing in, hoping to repeat the box office success of Sleepless in Seattle. However, it lacked charm and it felt like a clear retread. Sleepless is humble, cute and very watchable. Mail is also watchable, but it grates and will always be inferior to Sleepless.

Also avoid: Maid in Manhattan (2002)

24: Rocky V (1990)

At this point, Stallone was getting tired. His imagination »

Lost an ending Return of the Jedi did: send in the dancing Ewoks

13 August 2010 4:38 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

But for commercial concerns, the Star Wars saga would have finished on a bleak note. But do sad film endings work better?

The final scenes of Return Of The Jedi are imprinted on the consciousness of millions of Star Wars fans. After bidding farewell to his dead father in an emotional cremation sequence, Luke Skywalker rushes off to an Ewok party, where everybody hugs and dances and some Ewoks play the bongos. The end.

But it could have all been so different. Speaking before this weekend's Star Wars Celebration V conference in Florida, producer Gary Kurtz has revealed that if it wasn't for the wild popularity of Star Wars merchandise, Return Of The Jedi would have had a much bleaker ending. "The original idea was that they would recover Han Solo in the early part of the story and that he would then die in the middle part of the »

My first X-rated movie | Film

12 August 2010 2:46 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Sneaking into an X-rated film was once the ultimate thrill – even if you needed your granny to get you in. Jane Graham hears some first-timers' stories

Many of us have tender memories of sprinkling Baby Bio over wispy moustaches or smearing baby‑soft skin with Max Factor Pan-Stik to sneak into our first X-rated movie. It might come as a surprise to learn that it was only 40 years ago that the classic over-18 X certificate was created. In 1952 the voluntary, sporadically applied "H" (for "Horror") rating was upgraded to a compulsory "X" but that was a rather wimpy X, only ruling out under-16s. It wasn't until July 1970 that the "X" took on its legendary status, barring all non‑adults from films with explicit sexual or violent imagery. However, the "X" quickly acquired what for what was then known as the British Board of Film Censors was concerned was a lurid cult status, »

Witherspoon Taps Into Peggy Lee

11 August 2010 7:34 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Reese Witherspoon, leaps from one famous singing lady to another as she takes on the role of Peggy Lee in an upcoming biopic under Fox 2000. Witherspoon is the woman who's actually behind the entire project since she went and grabbed the rights from the estate and is also serving as producer. Nora Ephron is best known for her written and directed work with "Julie & Julia", "Michael" and "Sleepless in Seattle". She's attached to the Fox 2000 production to write and direct the biopic. Since Witherspoon already wrapped up her role in "Water for Elephants" and will be appearing in "This Means War" where the super hunky Tom Hardy and Chris Pine co-star as two lifelong friends who wage war with each other in order to win one girl's affections.Obviously this isn't the first time that Witherspoon sunk her teeth into the role of a singer.

Another Travels 'Fury Road,' 'Avengers' Has a Start Date and Reese is Peggy Lee

10 August 2010 5:18 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'm going to start today's roundup with an update on George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road, courtesy of Heat Vision. Borys Kit reports Riley Keough (Elvis Presley's granddaughter) is set to join the cast as one of the "Five Wives" Max (Inception's Tom Hardy) must protect from the bad guys. You might recognize Keough from her role in The Runaways, where she played the sister of Cherie Currie. For those unfamiliar, Fury Road takes place just a short while after 1985's Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, hence the casting of a younger actor like Hardy. I bet they're feeling pretty good about the decision not to bring back Mel Gibson right about now.

According to Steven Zeitchik of the L.A. Times, the English-language bestseller and French-language movie Tell No One is taking a path similar to that of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo in making its way onto American soil. »

Bette Midler: Misery is not me

6 August 2010 5:27 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

She passed up Oscar-winning roles and is now playing a talking cat. Should life have worked out differently for Bette Midler?

In theory, promoting a film like Cats & Dogs: The Revenge Of Kitty Galore should be the easiest thing in the world. You just have to pitch up, tell everyone that it's a fun family film, and then go home. You could, if you felt that starring in a film about some talking animals had somehow compromised your artistic credibility, simply admit that your children wanted you to be in it. That's what Chris O'Donnell said, and nobody thinks any less of him.

What you don't do, though, is follow Bette Midler's lead. Midler, who plays the eponymous Kitty Galore character, seems to be intent on promoting Cats And Dogs 2 by listing all the other disastrous career choices she's ever made in her life. In an interview with Metro this week, »
