Oprah's Next Door Neighbor Jeff Bridges, Home Wrecked in Mudslide

  • TMZ
Now we know to whom Oprah was referring on video when she pointed to a neighbor's home that was decimated by the mudslides ... it was the home of actor Jeff Bridges. The star of "The Big Lebowski" bought the home 3 years ago for $6.8 million. We're told the house could be a total loss, but it's impossible to know at this point because the debris makes the extent of damage almost impossible to assess. Bridges says at the very least,

The Best of the 8’s – From 1968 to 2008

As 2018 begins and we enter year 8 of this decade, Tom Jolliffe takes a look back at his favourite films from the previous five year 8’s…

Beginning with…

2008 – Let The Right One In

In a strong year, which included The Dark Knight and Slumdog Millionaire, I’ve opted for a genre redefining vampire film from Sweden. Not only is this my favourite of that particular year, but it’s one of the best of this century.

Anchored by two exceptional performances by the young leads, Kare Hedebrant and Lina Leandersson, this beautifully shot, haunting, thoughtful and poignant look at troubled youth (under the guise of a vampire cover which never dives carelessly into the recognisable tropes, but respects them) was one of the most surprising films of recent times. Every nuance of character from its considered human story is matched by the powerful impact of the ‘horror’ elements. From combusting vampires,

From Tim Allen to Tom Hanks: The 15 Most Memorable Cinematic Santas
Who rocks the best bowl-full-of-jelly belly in movie history? Father Christmas has shown up in enough movies that he has his own subgenre: the Santa Claus movie, a whole category of family friendly fantasy films dedicated to exploring the magic of St. Nick.

Here are some of the most memorable movie portrayals of Santa Claus.

1. Edmund Gwenn in Miracle on 34th Street (1947)

The gold standard for cinematic Santa Clauses, Gwenn plays Kris Kringle, a department store Santa who insists he’s the real thing. Gwenn’s performance as Kringle was so convincing that he won the Oscar for Best Supporting

With a ‘Film Stars’ Song in Contention, Rock Star Elvis Costello Reflects on Moonlighting for the Movies

With a ‘Film Stars’ Song in Contention, Rock Star Elvis Costello Reflects on Moonlighting for the Movies
Elvis Costello wrote the closing song for the new movie “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool,” but it’s a classic from his own canon that director Paul McGuigan planted as an Easter egg for music buffs. Costello’s “Pump It Up” is heard early on in the film to establish the late ’70s time frame, right before a scene that has the American actress Gloria Grahame (played by Annette Bening) meeting her younger Liverpudlian boyfriend (Jamie Bell) for the first time. Just after “Pump It Up” is heard on the soundtrack, the two lovers-to-be dance to “Boogie Oogie Oogie” — a cheeky nod to one of the silliest awards upsets of all time, when the ephemeral disco group A Taste of Honey famously beat Costello for the best new artist Grammy.

“You know what? It didn’t register,” admits Costello, who didn’t get the embedded joke when he first saw the film, and whom the

The 20 Best Director-Cinematographer Collaborations Working Today

The 20 Best Director-Cinematographer Collaborations Working Today
The gravitational pull that exists between great directors and great cinematographers is natural. Many of the best pairings throughout film history have been project based, with the director or producer picking a cinematographer to achieve a specific look for a particular film. There’s a difference between providing a talented cinematographer with the perfect platform to apply their skills and a director-cinematographer collaboration that elevates the work of both artists, regardless of material.

This list is less about identifying the best looking films of the era – although many are here – and more about celebrating collaborations that have allowed many of the best filmmakers working today to fully express themselves on the big screen.

Dir: Paul Thomas Anderson, Dp: Robert Elswit

The first time Paul Thomas Anderson did not work with Elswitt – “The Master,” shot by Mihai Mălaimare Jr. – the results were (thankfully) great, but it’s fascinating that the director

Picket fences once symbolized all that was right with the American Dream. Not anymore.

Director George Clooney’s dark dramedy Suburbicon takes place in a seemingly idyllic 1950s town that turns out to be anything but when thugs invade the home of Gardner and Rose Lodge (Matt Damon, Julianne Moore), killing Rose and setting Gardner on a very dark path. Enter Rose’s twin sister, Margaret (also Moore), who moves in with the grieving family and gets caught up in a violent whirlwind.

Clooney and Moore were at CinemaCon in Las Vegas when they sat down to talk about the film.

Woodshock – Review

It’s travel time at the vacation wing of the ole’ multiplex yet again. A couple of months ago we explored France in Paris Can Wait, and just a few weeks ago we joined Steve and Rob for a food-filled travelogue in The Trip To Spain. Summer may be over, but it’s not too late to “get away from it all” with another trip….a trip inside your mind. If you’re thinking of “mother’s little helper” then you’re on the right track. Movies about drugs have changed with society over the years. The first flicks were hysterical (in more ways than one) cautionary tales epitomized by the camp classic Reefer Madness. With the counter culture’s rise in the 60’s and 70’s there were more enlightened films like, well Roger Corman’s The Trip. And in the 80’s Cheech and Chong finally took their weed humor
