Frances McDormand's Thoughts on Plastic Surgery Are Refreshing

18 October 2014 12:20 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Frances McDormand feels rage about plastic surgery.

Actress Frances McDormand is wise beyond her years and is sharing wisdom on age.

At 57, the award-winning star who won an Oscar for Fargo and a Tony for Good People, has some words for Hollywood's fixation on youth. 

She told the New York Times, "We are on red alert when it comes to how we are perceiving ourselves as a species," she said. "There's no desire to be an adult. Adulthood is not a goal. It's not seen as a gift. Something happened culturally: No one is supposed to age past 45 — sartorially, cosmetically, attitudinally. Everybody dresses like a teenager. Everybody dyes their hair. Everybody is concerned about a smooth face."

McDormand does not see old age as a negative part of life. She says, "Looking old should be a boast about experiences accrued and insights acquired, a triumphant »

17 October 2014 1:41 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Now that fall is upon us, it's starting to get a little chilly out (at least if you live somewhere with all four seasons), and that means it's time for warmer clothes. Thankfully, if you're a cinephile who just always has to represent what you love with what you wear, then the folks at Mondo have you covered. After unveiling their 237 Collection inspired by The Shining, the collectible arthouse has now released two knit sweaters that will be perfect for fans of the cult classic holiday film Gremlins from director Joe Dante and producer Steven Spielberg and Joel & Ethan Coen's Fargo (though it's more of a tribute to the TV series).

Here's a look at the two sweaters for Gremlins and Fargo from Mondo: Both sweaters were designed by Middle of Beyond and will be 100% acrylic heavy knit with sizes running from Xs up through 3Xl. They'll run you $85 each, »

17 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

IFC Midnight has announced the acquisition of Dark Summer, with plans to release the movie in North America early next year:

“IFC Midnight has acquired North American distribution rights to Content Media’s supernatural horror film Dark Summer.

IFC Midnight plans to release the film on all platforms January 9th, 2015.

A highly stylized modern ghost story, Dark Summer follows Daniel Williamson, a 17 year old on house arrest for the summer. With his mother away on business, a horrifying incident occurs, followed by an even more terrifying presence in the house, and twists that will leave audiences reeling.

Paul Solet (Grace) directed Dark Summer for Preferred Film & TV (Pft), based off a screenplay by Mike Le (creator of the popular web series, K-town and writer of Screen Gem’s Patient Zero). The film was produced by Pft‘s Ross M. Dinerstein and executive produced by Content’s Jamie Carmichael.

‘Birdman,’ ‘Dear White People,’ ‘Hiroshima Mon Amour’ Lead Weekend’s Specialty Debuts

16 October 2014 3:46 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Perched at the top of this week’s flock of specialty film debuts is Birdman (Or The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance), a possible Oscar contender starring Michael Keaton. Though it’s a limited release, Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s complex film about a fading action-hero trying to reclaim his mojo on Broadway nevertheless combines elements of a superhero franchise that could tap fans well beyond the art house.

It’s part of yet another big flock of specialty film debuts coming this weekend, including the controversy-minded Sundance award-winner Dear White PeopleWilliam H. Macy‘s directorial debut RudderlessKristen Stewart‘s Camp X-Ray, Jason Schwartzman‘s Listen Up Philip, The Golden Era, Summer Of Blood, and one great revival, Alain Resnais’ 1959 landmark Hiroshima Mon Amour.

To get a sense of Fox Searchlight’s ambitions for Birdman, the film closed the New York Film Festival last weekend to strong reviews, but then »

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Recap Season 4, Episode 1: 'Monsters Among Us'

8 October 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"American Horror Story" has always been about one freak show or another; it's just that this season actually takes place in the sideshow. The characters and events from the previous seasons sound like a club that Stefon from "Saturday Night Live" would make up: a murder house with a ghost who wears a rubber suit; a former Nazi scientist who experiments on his patients in an asylum; a beautiful swamp witch who listens to Stevie Nicks and can bring the dead back to life; a Louisiana grand dame who used to torture and kill her slaves and bathe in their blood; a sexy collegiate Frankenstein; a tragic take on E. Jane Cochrane; a psycho psychiatrist with a taste for wearing human skin and drinking breast milk; and So. Much More.

It's breathtaking, invigorating, and utterly bananas. It's frankly insane that it's on a basic cable network. And I love it. »

'Twin Peaks' is coming back? Doc Jensen's all in

6 October 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Last week, when word broke that David Lynch and Mark Frost might be making more Twin Peaks, I responded with the excitement of the ridiculous Twin Peaks fan I happen to be. "Let's rock!" I tweeted, quoting The Man From Another Place. (Of course, if I were a real fan, I would have run the line backwards.) The show changed me—then a nerdy wannabe cinephile—the same way that it changed television, capturing my imagination for ambitious, challenging vision and cultivating both an appreciation of and a desire for auteur storytelling. But another tweet from another critic, Time's James Poniewozik, »

Satanic Sunday: Ranking Portrayals of the Devil

5 October 2014 5:55 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It’s hard to nail down the personification of the ultimate evil. The Prince of Darkness deserves to be more than just a cackling, dark figure in the background or an over-the-top sleaze.  This is an angel who has been cast out of Heaven and carries a major grudge. Neglecting the depth of his pain or not seizing the opportunity to have a little fun in the exercise of his machinations is always a problem, with no discernible representation able to strike a perfect balance yet. The best contemporary performances on film leave something to the imagination and twist our perception of the iconic role just enough to make it seem fresh or threatening. What follows is a list of cinematic Satans that have made an indelible impression, ranked from worst to best.

New clip from Arrow season 3 premiere pits Oliver against the new Count Vertigo

4 October 2014 3:55 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When Fargo and Prison Break alum Peter Stormare was cast as the new Count Vertigo on Arrow, we knew that he’d be a more formidable opponent for the emerald archer than Seth Gabel’s version of the character from the previous seasons. Now, we have a clip from the season three premiere to prove it. Check it out…

Oliver not only fails to get the drop on Vertigo, but he’s incapacitated rather quickly – which leads to a pretty great Oliver vs. Arrow hallucination. Needless to say, I’m excited to see what Stormare does with the role and am now even more pumped for the season premiere on Wednesday.
