Woody Allen: A Career in 20 Hilarious, Brilliant Lines

13 July 2016 9:17 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

This Friday, Café Society, the latest release from writer/director/comic godhead Woody Allen, waltzes into theaters — the 47th feature Allen has directed over a career spanning 50 years. (Yes, we're counting New York Stories.) He's had box-office successes and outright bombs, Oscar-winning masterpieces and critically panned duds. But regardless of his movies' receptions (and the reoccurring rumors about his personal life), he's managed to pump out a film a year with impressive regularity. Some key elements have stayed the same — once a jazz clarinet slinks onto the soundtrack, audiences know exactly who they're dealing with. »

Mira Sorvino Plays an Addict Trying to Rebuild Her Life in ‘Quitters’ (Exclusive Video)

11 July 2016 4:20 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Mira Sorvino won an Academy Award for playing a prostitute who gave her son up for adoption in the 1995 comedy “The Mighty Aphrodite,” and in the new movie “Qutters,” she’s back in that darkly comedic territory as a mother who enters rehab for a prescription drug addiction. In this clip from director Noah Pritzker’s debut film — about a high schooler played by Ben Konigsberg (“Orange Is the New Black”), whose life crumbles when he clashes with his father (Greg Germann) after his mom checks in for treatment — Sorvino is living in a rehab facility that sits high above. »

‘The Missing Ingredient’ Exclusive Trailer: How Does One Create a New York Institution?

27 June 2016 2:45 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Michael Sparaga’s upcoming documentary “The Missing Ingredient: What Is The Recipe For Success?” is an insightful exploration into New York City restaurant culture and what exactly it takes to become an institution in such a cut-throat environment. In order to get to the bottom of this inquiry, Sparanga focuses on two restaurants. The first is Gino’s, an Upper East Side fixture that’s been around for over half a century. It has a fiercely loyal clientele and has hosted a number of remarkable regulars over the years, including Frank Sinatra, Sophia Loren, and John Lennon. Its iconic zebra wallpaper inspired Woody Allen and Wes Anderson to feature it in their films “Mighty Aphrodite” and “The Royal Tenenbaums.”

Great Moments in Gay - Bring it On

2 June 2016 4:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

In Great Moments in Gay, Team Tfe looks at our favorite queer scenes in the movies for Pride Month. Here's Kieran Scarlett on Bring it On (2000)

Peyton Reed's Bring it On is one of the best high school movies of all time. It's best to get that out of the way first in any writing about the 2000 flick about the politics of high school cheerleading. It's often dismissed, forgotten or written off as a trifle, which couldn't be further from the truth. It so stylishly inhabits its own cinematic universe and does such an excellent job of world building--something that's often missing in a lot of high school movies where the environment can sometimes feel generic or a retread of superior movies. Its first scene brilliantly employs a Greek chorus-style device set to a cheer routine to introduce the world and its characters. And it manages to do so »

'Twister': 10 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the Summer Blockbuster

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

Released 20 years ago this week (on May 10, 1996), "Twister" wasn't just a blockbuster special-effects spectacle that made viable movie stars out of Helen Hunt an Bill Paxton.

It was also the "Apocalypse Now" of weather-themed disaster movies. The film's production was marked by severe injuries to the stars and crew, a runaway budget, and the cinematographers openly rebelling against the director. Here are the real-life twists you didn't hear about from the tornado drama's tempestuous shoot.

1. The "Twister" screenplay is credited to "Jurassic Park" novelist Michael Crichton and his wife, Anne-Marie Martin, but it was revised by such celebrated script doctors as Joss Whedon (who dropped out of the project because he contracted bronchitis), Steven Zaillian (who dropped out because he was leaving for his honeymoon), and Jeff Nathanson, who was on the set and kept rewriting the script until the end of the shoot.

2. Helen Hunt was director Jan de Bont »

Oscar Flashback: See an 'Incredibly Nervous' Kate Winslet Make Her Academy Awards Debut in 1996

25 February 2016 9:15 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Remember when Mel Gibson won an Oscar in 1996 for directing Braveheart? That same year, a virtually unknown actress nabbed her first nomination - for Best Supporting Actress - playing opposite Alan Rickman in Ang Lee's adaptation of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility. It's been two decades since Kate Winslet, 40, attended her first Academy Awards, and this year the awards show veteran is nominated in the very same category for her role in Steve Jobs - although it's safe to say she'll be a bit less overwhelmed on Sunday than she was 20 years ago. "There's no point denying that it's blown me absolutely away. »

Caprice | 2016 My French Film Festival Review

11 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

You Will Love a Tall Blonde Actress: Mouret Plays a Man Most Wanted in Latest RomCom

Perhaps what’s most refreshing about actor/writer/director Emmanuel Mouret’s latest effort Caprice is how equally unlikely it presents the maddening scenario of a nebbish male romantic lead courted aggressively by two incredibly attractive women. A lighter, Gallic equivalent of the type of masculine steered ménage a trois we’ve grown accustomed from Woody Allen, this treatment manages to feel equally effortless but not entirely effervescent. A series of coincidences sets off a sexual comedy of errors involving a quartet of enjoyable performers, though all is eventually for naught since none of them are exactly likeable, a problem considering they’re trapped in a romantic comedy paradigm necessitating we grow interested or even attached to at least one of their outcomes.
