Julianne Moore and Jeff Bridges’ ‘Seventh Son’ Screening is a ‘Big Lebowski’ Reunion

9 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Dark magic, witches and “the Dude” (Jeff Bridges’ famed role in “The Big Lebowski”) prevailed at a special screening of Universal Pictures’ epic fantasy adventure “Seventh Son” in New York City on Friday night.

The film’s stars, Bridges and Julianne Moore — last seen together onscreen in the Coen brothers’ 1998 cult classic, 17 years prior — reunited at the Crosby Street Hotel for the first time since “Seventh Son” wrapped in 2012. The movie’s release was long delayed after Legendary Pictures parted ways with Warner Bros., originally on board to distribute the project.

With Bridges and Moore back together, the red carpet was abuzz with “Big Lebowski” talk. Is a follow-up to the slacker comedy in the works? Would Bridges ever bring back “the Dude”?

“Oh God yes, I would do a sequel,” Bridges told Variety. “I’ll do anything the Coen brothers ask me. I take that very seriously. But there’s nothing official… »

Nominated for Nothing: 'Love Is Strange'

28 January 2015 6:45 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Just about every year, brilliant movies are utterly ignored by the Oscars. The Searchers, Groundhog Day, Breathless, King Kong, Casino Royale, Touch of Evil, Caddyshack, Mean Streets, The Big Lebowski, Blackfish — the Academy has a long history of overlooking comedies, action movies, horror flicks, hard-boiled genre pics, artsy foreign films, and documentaries that aren’t about World War II. Before the ceremony, we’ll be taking a closer look at films that were too small, too weird, or perhaps simply too awesome for the Academy Awards. These are the Non-Nominees.

Inherent Vice review: Paul Thomas Anderson gets lost in adaptation

28 January 2015 2:55 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Paul Thomas Anderson; Screenwriter: Paul Thomas Anderson; Starring: Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Katherine Waterston, Reese Witherspoon, Benicio del Toro, Jena Malone; Running time: 148 mins; Certificate: 15

With masterpieces like Boogie Nights and Magnolia tucked under his belt, Paul Thomas Anderson's new movies are inevitably threatened by the huge burden of expectation. A bold director who never shies away from a challenge, Anderson's latest effort tackles Thomas Pynchon's supposedly unfilmable novel Inherent Vice and bears all the hallmarks of his finest work – a terrific ensemble cast, acutely observed visual detail and a labyrinthine plot that weaves together disparate and desperate figures. Sadly on this occasion, such individually strong components fail to gel together as a whole and provide a consistently engaging experience.

The intriguing period at the start of the 1970s is the canvas for the story, which involves a stoner private detective known as 'Doc' (Joaquin Phoenix »

Inherent Vice: more marijuana misfire than stoner classic

25 January 2015 10:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Critics are comparing Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice to the stoner noir of The Big Lebowski – but, even with Joaquin Phoenix in The Dude role, it’s not in the same league

Three viewings in and I’m still not at all sure how I feel about Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice. But this has been true for me of all his recent movies. I thought the first half of There Will Be Blood was masterly film-making, and the second half was bogus, meandering, poorly workshopped tripe that couldn’t find the way to its own exit. I think The Master is a cold, self-effacing masterpiece, but it took me more than 10 viewings to come around to that opinion.

With Vice, I find most of the comparisons that critics are making unhelpful. The Big Lebowski and The Long Goodbye, the two foremost stoner-noirs, seem to have been more »

Class Disparities and Prostitution Tackled in Early Female Director's Drama

23 January 2015 5:01 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Pioneering woman director Lois Weber socially conscious drama 'Shoes' among Library of Congress' Packard Theater movies (photo: Mary MacLaren in 'Shoes') In February 2015, National Film Registry titles will be showcased at the Library of Congress' Packard Campus Theater – aka the Packard Campus for Audio Visual Conservation – in Culpeper, Virginia. These range from pioneering woman director Lois Weber's socially conscious 1916 drama Shoes to Robert Zemeckis' 1985 blockbuster Back to the Future. Another Packard Theater highlight next month is Sam Peckinpah's ultra-violent Western The Wild Bunch (1969), starring William Holden and Ernest Borgnine. Also, Howard Hawks' "anti-High Noon" Western Rio Bravo (1959), toplining John Wayne and Dean Martin. And George Cukor's costly remake of A Star Is Born (1954), featuring Academy Award nominees Judy Garland and James Mason in the old Janet Gaynor and Fredric March roles.

Julianne Moore Says She Doesn’t Need a Memorial Service After MMI Salute

21 January 2015 4:24 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On the heels of her second Golden Globe win and fifth Academy Award nomination, Julianne Moore, flanked by her husband and two children, sat back and soaked up the Museum of the Moving Image’s salute in her honor.

“You know when you’re young, you’ll pursue things without any knowledge of where they’ll lead, and not knowing how they’ll shape your life,” Moore professed to the crowd. “But because this is a retrospective, it’s forcing me to look back and consider what it was that led me here. A lot of it was luck, (and) it was almost certainly my interest in story.”

The 29th annual Mmi Salute served as a monument to her own story.

The event came at a time of change for the museum, which in 10 days will welcome Sony Pictures Classics founder and co-president Michael Barker into the co-chairman role previously assumed by Herbert S. »

Mortdecai review

21 January 2015 11:52 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Johnny Depp channels Leslie Phillips in his latest outing, Mortdecai. But is he successful? Not really...

Your enjoyment of Mortdecai is likely going to be based on one thing: how much you can stand late period Johnny Depp. If you still find his faux-British sauntering thing endearing and enjoyable, you’ll probably have a good time. If however, like me, you’ve been growing tired of it since the second Pirates Of The Caribbean movie, you might find it a bit of a chore.

Based on author Kyril Bonfiglioli’s series of cult novels, Depp plays Charlie Mortdecai, an cartoonish upper crust art dealer-slash-conman, with a mansion in Oxford and staring bankruptcy down the barrel. When a rare Goya painting is stolen, old acquaintance and MI5 agent Alistair Martland (Ewan McGregor) throws Mortdecai a bone – retrieve the painting and he’ll clear his tax debt. What follows is a half Bond, »

‘Citizen Kane’ Set for First-Ever Screening at Hearst Castle (Exclusive)

16 January 2015 6:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Orson Welles’ iconic “Citizen Kane” has been set for its first-ever showing at Hearst Castle on March 13 as part of the San Luis Obispo International Film Festival.

The movie will be screened at the private theater at the massive hilltop estate — the inspiration for Xanadu in “Citizen Kane” — for about 50 people. Tickets will cost $1,000 each and proceeds will benefit the festival and The Friends of Hearst Castle preservation group.

The Hearst family became a part of the festival in 2012 when William Randolph Hearst’s grandson Steven Hearst agreed to a first-ever screening of “Citizen Kane” at the Hearst Castle visitor center, two miles away from Hearst Castle — even though his grandfather had tried unsuccessfully to suppress the 1941 film. Steven Hearst had said then that enough time has passed for the family to acknowledge the artistic achievement of the film, while attempting to set the record straight about Hearst.

‘Inherent Vice’ suffers only against Paul Thomas Anderson’s past work

12 January 2015 6:03 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Inherent Vice

Written for the screen and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson

USA, 2014

It’s not just that Paul Thomas Anderson’s movies tend to defy any one genre description; it’s that, often, it seems as if the writer-director is trying to play with many genres simultaneously. The only reason that Boogie Nights isn’t the best drama of the 1990s is that it spends a lot of time trying to be the best comedy of the 1990s instead. So Anderson’s newest, Inherent Vice, is a departure in that it mostly sticks to one style (sun-drenched film noir) and one tone (absurdist comedy). It’s also a fine film, which suffers only when measured against the insanely high standard that Anderson’s past work has set.

With Inherent Vice, Anderson adapts Thomas Pynchon’s novel of 1970 Los Angeles, wherein Larry “Doc” Sportello (Joaquin Phoenix) works as the city’s most doped-up private investigator. »
