The 1986 romantic comedy-drama Hannah and Her Sisters and the 1973 comedy Sleeper are generally considered to be two of filmmaker Woody Allen’s (You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger) finer efforts of the 40-plus movies he’s made over the past four decades.
The winner of three Academy Awards (including Michael Caine for Best Supporting Actor, Dianne Wiest for Best Supporting Actress and Woody himself for Best Screenplay), Hannah and Her Sisters spins a delicious tale about the lives and loves of three sisters in New York City. Woody also co-stars in the ensemble, along with Mia Farrow (Rosemary’s Baby), Max Von Sydow (The Magician), Barbara Hershey (Black Swan) and Carrie Fisher (Wishful Drinking).
Sleeper stars Woody as Mile Monroe, a health food store owner from 1970s New York who is cryogenically »

Life intersected with art when Tim Burton chose to make a cinematic adaptation of Big Fish by novelist Daniel Wallace; Edward Bloom (Albert Finney) lies on his death bed recounting his youthful adventures to his estranged son William (Billy Crudup). “My father had been ill for a while,” confided the filmmaker, “I tried to get in touch with him, to have, like in this film, some sort of resolution, but it was impossible.” Not all was lost for Burton. “I went back to thinking about my father, and as bad a relationship as I had, early on it was quite magical…It’s important to remember that. I forgot that for too long.” The director added, “I think it’s a thing where everybody loses a parent and, »

Last week, we took a look at the relative dearth of leading men in Hollywood: why Tom Cruise, Will Smith, et al. remain at the top of the tree and why so few serious competitors have emerged since. But one of the most exciting things about our job is getting to watch the new names that emerge, breakouts who have the potential to join the A-listers, or at the very least, deliver a host of hugely exciting performances for decades to come.
So we've decided to kick off our On The Rise selection for 2012 by looking at some of the actors who we're tipping for big things in the next few years. Last time we made these kinds of picks and predictions we did pretty well, listing the likes of Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramirez, Jason Sudeikis, Adam Scott, Jake Johnson and David Oyelowo who have all gone on to become much-sought-after names, »

Chicago – Two performers who made their marks during the latter days of the 1970s, and into the ‘80s are singer/actor Rex Smith and adult film star Seka. Even though they took different roads in their show business journey, they both were notable around the same time.
Rex Smith and Seka appeared at the Hollywood Celebrities & Memorabilia Show (now called “The Hollywood Show”) in 2011, and HollywoodChicago.com sent photographer Joe Arce to take some Exclusive Photos, and they both sat down for interviews about their different but era-intersecting resumes.
Rex Smith, Singer of “You Take My Breath Away”
Rex Smith is familiar to anyone who remembers the summer of 1979, when his pop hit “You Take My Breath Away” peaked at number 10 on the Billboard charts. The song originated in a TV movie called “Sooner or Later,” in which Smith also starred. His follow-up 1981 hit was a duet – “Everlasting Love” with »

Okay, maybe not the most original title for a casting update surrounding a porn-star biopic, but it appears there is movement on the Amanda Seyfried-starring, Lovelace. Joining the cast is the acclaimed Zodiac and Big Love actress Chloe Sevigny. Sevigny is no stranger to controversial subjects. After making her acting debut in Larry Clark’s notorious teen-sex drama Kids, the actress also featured in Boys Don’T Cry, American Psycho and The Brown Bunny. The film will re-unite her with her Boys Don’T Cry co-star Peter Sarsgaard, where she will portray a journalist, writing an article about the late porn actress.
On the other-hand, leaving the project is Demi Moore, who was set to star as the legendary feminist figure Gloria Steinem. There is currently no word yet who will replace Moore in the currently-shooting life story. Lovelace is directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffery Friedman and has »

The 2011 RopeofSilicon Movie Awards I know the Oscars are still a little over a month away, but for me the RopeofSilicon Awards are the moment I begin putting the old year behind me and truly begin focusing on the new one. This is the fourth year I've done this and to celebrate the year's films I gained inspiration from one of the movie posters I declared one of the best of the year and put together my own poster for just this occasion, taking images from several of 2011's films and creating the collage you see below. The poster is made up of films and performances I enjoyed on one level or another, and while you'll find a couple of duplicates here and there, all-in-all there are 61 films represented and I've included a high resolution version should you want to give it a closer look. How many of the films can you name? »
