2 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Movie nerds love to wax poetic about their favorite film houses — especially when a list like this one from Men’s Journal comes along, in which the magazine rated the top 20 movie theaters in the world. From Paris to Los Angeles and Sydney, Australia, this selection of cinemas ventures around the globe, but gives the number one spot to the Spanish Colonial Baroque-designed Castro Theatre in San Francisco. Built by Timothy L. Pflueger in 1922, the 1,407-seat theater has a grand facade and sits in the heart of the largest (and one of the oldest) Lgbt communities in the United States. The Castro even hosted the world premiere of Gus Van Sant’s Oscar-winning movie Milk — about the first openly gay elected official in California, Harvey Milk. Check out...

Tom Daly Confirms His Sexuality: 'I'm A Gay Man Now'

2 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Tom Daley has put speculation about his sexual orientation to rest, and has officially come out as gay.

Tom Daley Comes Out As Gay

Previously, Daley, 19, declined to give himself a label. When he came out in a YouTube video, he’d simply come out as in a relationship with a guy, but also noted, “Of course, I still fancy girls.” Eventually it came out that the guy he was dating was the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Milk, Dustin Lance Black, 39.

Now that he’s been openly dating Black for several months, Daley confirmed, “I am a gay man now,” while on Keith Lemon’s Celebrity Juice.

"I came out on YouTube as I wanted to say what I wanted to say without anyone twisting it,” Daley further explained. “I told my family before I told the world. I was terrified. I did not know what the reaction was going to be. »

Review: Cesar Chavez Gets It Right

27 March 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

I gotta admit that I was very skeptical going into this movie. There is something very dreadful about patronizing Hollywood biopics that makes me shudder. But with its largely Mexican-American cast and Mexican actor-turned-director Diego Luna (Y Tu Mama Tambien, Milk) directing, and for the fact it's the first biopic on Chavez, one of the most important labor activists in American history, I thought I'd give it a go. Surprisingly, Luna does an amazing job here, wisely concentrating on Chavez's biggest accomplishment in mid 60s through 70s -- as he goes back working in the field to organize, to the great California grapes strike, to hunger strikes to end violence on both sides. He doesn't whitewash his subject. Chavez's constant absence takes a toll on his...

25 March 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Madonna returns to the director's chair for 'Adé'

25 March 2014 11:32 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When Madonna unveiled her second directorial effort "W.E." at the Venice Film Festival in 2011, the critics (this one included) were pretty merciless. That glossy mashup of Wallis Simpson biopic and contemporary Harlequin romance was, admittedly, a pretty easy target -- The Weinstein Company's advance hype didn't fool anybody -- but the sheer vapid ineptitude of its storytelling still managed to surprise. Andrea Riseborough received some good notices for work as Simpson, Arianna Phillips' super-glam costumes were Oscar-nominated and Madge's own theme song even scooped a Golden Globe, but after this and her little-seen debut "Filth and Wisdom," no one seemed to be begging the pop queen to return to the director's chair. But hey, Madonna has never in her entire career been cowed by criticism, and she's not about to start now. It was announced earlier today that she is to direct her third feature "Adé" -- an adaptation of »

Josh Brolin: 'I tried heroin. Most of the guys I grew up with are dead now'

13 March 2014 5:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Labor Day star's past as a Hollywood brat featured more than his share of drugs, booze and tattoos. How much did he draw on his own history in his portrayal of fugitive killer Frank?

Labor Day spins the story of Frank, an escaped convict who gatecrashes suburbia and proceeds to cook a peach cobbler to die for. "Let's put a roof on this house," says Frank, up to his muscled forearms in flour, as he prepares to add the pastry to the filling. Labor Day, it should be noted, is not a film to skimp on its metaphors. The peach cobbler represents the tumbledown family home, sad and broken and in need of repair. No doubt it also represents Frank, whose crusty exterior contains a warm, gooey centre. Perhaps it even says something about the actor who plays him too.
