Besides pizza delivery, the Oscar telecast also featured the presence of veterans Kim Novak and Sidney Poitier; musical performances by U2, Pharrell Williams, and Idina Menzel (aka "Adele Nazeem," as per John Travolta); in addition to a tribute to The Wizard of Oz performed by »

Friday Distraction: Can You Guess Which Of These Horror Movies Is Real?

7 February 2014 5:54 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Hollywood is always thinking! If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s that they’ll create a trend and then bleed it dry until all that’s left is an empty husk.

For instance, take a look at these four films based on recent trends. You may think that they’re just too insane to be real, but one of them is an actual movie coming out. Can you guess which one?

Cannibal Rat Ship

Syfy is known for their quick turnaround when it comes to buzzworthy horror films, and they’ve already got their latest “ripped from the headlines” epic ready for late February sweeps. Tara Reid stars as an oceanographer who finds herself at odds with salvage operator Antonio Sabato, Jr. when they board a derelict ocean liner. They make a horrifying discovery – a virus has invaded the ship, killing the crew and passengers with literal explosive diarrhea, »

Berlin: Rob Reiner Talks New Film ‘And So It Goes’

5 February 2014 10:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In 2006, when Rob Reiner was shooting “The Bucket List” with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, he got the idea for another project — a feature dealing with people falling in love later in life.

Eight years later, Reiner’s “And So It Goes” is up for sale at Berlin. Produced by Foresight Unlimited in association with Reiner’s Castle Rock, it marks the first time Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton have appeared onscreen together.

Douglas portrays a self-centered real estate agent whose life is turned upside down when his estranged son suddenly drops off a granddaughter, played by Sterling Jerins, whom he never knew. Keaton plays the neighbor of Douglas’ character. The cast is rounded out by Frankie Valli, Scott Shepherd and Frances Sternhagen.

“We really thought about getting Jack (Nicholson) in the film but he really does not want to act any more,” Reiner said.

Indie Spotlight Review: Nobody Can Cool

by Heather Wixson

Nobody Can Cool is the rather impressive directorial debut from up-and-coming filmmaking duo Dpyx, Marcy Boyle and Rachel Holzman, who crafted a blisteringly taut and thoughtful indie crime thriller with a palpable sense of tension from start to finish. A gritty and engaging tale of deceit, violence and desperation, Nobody Can Cool is anchored by a breakout performance by Nick Principe (best known from his work in the Laid to Rest series, Madison County and »

The Academy Awards: No Country for Old Men, or Women?

11 January 2014 1:33 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Mark Pinkert

At the ripe age of 79, Judi Dench could become the second oldest woman to win the Academy Award for Best Actress. She’s a likely nominee by way of Philomena (2013), a British comedy-drama in which Philomena Lee (Dench) pairs up with an out-of-work journalist, Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan), to find the son she was forced to give up 50 years earlier. An Academy win would make Dench the second oldest Best Actress behind only Jessica Tandy, who won the award at the age of 80 as Mrs. Daisy Werthan in Driving Miss Daisy (1989), and only the third Best Actress to receive the award while over the age of 65 (Katharine Hepburn won for On Golden Pond (1981) when she was 74 years old).

Dench–known more for her icy, matriarchal roles–is illuminated and humorous in Philomena, and she handles this role with great dexterity. But while she’s an almost guaranteed Best Actress nom, »

Last Vegas – review

4 January 2014 4:07 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This sometimes improbable comedy hangs on fine performances from its four veteran stars

If you loved The Hangover and adored The Bucket List, you may just look fondly on Last Vegas, Jon Turteltaub's indulgent, high-concept comedy about a band of ageing bulls living it large in Sin City. Here is a film with scotch on its breath and Viagra in its breast pocket; a series of artificial highs en route to the maudlin final clinch. In fits and starts I rather enjoyed it.

Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline play the faded Brooklyn buddies who reunite to celebrate the forthcoming wedding of their former ringleader (Michael Douglas). "This is the first bachelor party that could be covered by Medicaid," they remark as they weave through the deodorised fantasy land of modern-day Vegas, whistling at the girls by the pool and guzzling alcohol from the breasts of an attractive ice sculpture. »

Last Vegas review: De Niro, Douglas, Freeman are geriatric pack

3 January 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Jon Turteltaub; Screenwriter: Dan Fogelman; Starring: Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Kline; Running time: 105 mins; Certificate: 12A

For a comedy of guilty pleasures, Las Vegas is a fitting backdrop - and you're in good company with Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline. Like these veteran stars, the story is old and creaky but director Jon Turteltaub doesn't have to try too hard (and takes advantage of the situation) when the chemistry works for this geriatric take on The Hangover.

Douglas plays the one who never grew up, called Billy (the Kid?), who decides to seize the day at a funeral and proposes to his girlfriend in the middle of the eulogy. It's a good start with the droll impropriety only emphasised by the fact his girlfriend is less than half his age - or as Billy puts it, "almost 32". A stag do »
