Bill Nighy: 5 Awesome Performances And 5 That Sucked

5 February 2016 1:42 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

It’s thanks to Richard Curtis that Bill Nighy broke into the mainstream, after two decades spent languishing on TV, going from prestige drama to prestige drama in the hallowed halls of the Beeb where he was pretty much wasted.

He really broke out in Hollywood thanks to Richard Curtis making him the heart and soul of Love Actually, and in turn we’ve been gifted twelve years of aloof, dry-witted older gents and curt yet well-spoken villains.

Unfortunately, there are an alarming amount of instances where the character actor’s particular charms appear to be on autopilot and his performances sometimes have the tendency to fall a mite flat.

That’s not to say that we haven’t had our fair share of great Nighy performances; there are a few notable ones that don’t make this list, but are deserving of an honourable mention. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, »

Are Rom-Coms Making Us Think Creepy Male Behavior Is Okay? New Study Says Yes

4 February 2016 9:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Turns out, romantic comedies may want to rethink their moniker - to romantic creepies. A new study from University of Michigan gender and sexuality expert Julia R Lippman claims that male behaviors often show in rom-coms are actually pretty damaging to our perception of what's "normal." Basically, rom-coms are making us think actions that are actually pretty creepy and borderline stalker-ish are romantic, sweet or passionate. Lippman looked at women's responses to aggressive behavior in relationships in two groups. The first was after watching rom-coms like There's Something About Mary and the second, non-romance movies like March of the Penguins. »

Study finds romcoms teach female filmgoers to tolerate 'stalking myths'

3 February 2016 5:06 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

University of Michigan report suggests women who watch movies such as High Fidelity and Love Actually are more accepting of aggressive male behaviour

If you ever felt a little uncomfortable watching Andrew Lincoln’s cue-card delivered confession of devotion for Keira Knightley in Love Actually, or wondered whether it was appropriate for Ben Stiller to hire a private eye to track down his high school crush in There’s Something About Mary, it turns out science is on your side. A new study suggests romcoms that feature men engaging in stalker-like behaviour can make women more likely to tolerate obsessiveness from prospective romantic partners.

I Did It Because I Never Stopped Loving You, a report by the gender and sexuality expert Julia R Lippman, of the University of Michigan, examined women’s response to questions about aggressive romantic behaviour after watching a series of films with differing themes. Lippman found »

Bottle Shock – The ‘Tribute to Alan Rickman’ Review

31 January 2016 4:44 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I Hate wine!  Seriously, no kidding, I cannot drink it, smell it and I don’t like to talk about it.  The origin of this distaste for fermented grape juice?  It was when I was in the Navy (there he goes again!) I was on liberty in Brindisi, Italy (Bill remembers!)  We were in a restaurant on a bright, sunny Italian Sunday afternoon.  We ordered food and wine.  The wine came in pitchers, not bottles.  I don’t recall the food ever arriving, don’t remember leaving the restaurant, going back to the ship, none of that, complete blackout.

Literally one minute in the restaurant, the next lying face down in my rack strangling on my own sick.  I won’t go into any more sordid details, I’ll spare you that.  Sufficient to note I was in trouble with the Navy, had gotten horribly sick on a liberty boat, »

10 Awesome Obscure Alan Rickman Roles You Probably Missed

22 January 2016 2:44 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

DreamWorks

When you think Alan Rickman, you think of the icy sneer of Hans Gruber, the twisted malevolence of the Sheriff of Nottingham and the chilling gravitas of Professor Snape. You might even call to mind the doe-eyed sincerity of Harry, the hapless protagonist of Love Actually, or moustachioed cellist Jamie from Truly, Madly, Deeply. Yet the London-born actor who so sadly passed away enjoyed a rich and varied career that took in everything from romantic comedies and dark dramas to fantasy, sci-fi and animation.

Notoriously private when off-screen, Rickman was quoted as saying that “if people want to know who I am, it is all in the work”. To gain a full understanding of one of Britain’s finest acting talents, then, we must look to his full catalogue, including those films that didn’t grab the headlines in the manner of Die Hard and Harry Potter but none »
