Was it something she ate? Pretty much! Winona Ryder is making a grand return to the spotlight, and she's sharing some tricks of the trade she's learned along the way. For one: Just say no to nibbling scenes. While filming the lesser-known 1990 teen comedy Welcome Home, Roxy Carmichael, Ryder, then 19, says she learned this the hard way. "There's a scene in my bedroom where I start eating Almond Roca," Ryder, 41, tells People while promoting her new film The Iceman in New York City. "I was so young. It was before I knew the tricks of moviemaking, and I didn't know »

It's come to this. The two most public figures of hedonistic excess and hurricane-level character destruction, meeting at last to decide who will have the better future film career based solely on their past shenanigans.
They appear together in the fifth installment of the "Scary Movie" franchise, debuting this Friday, and by all accounts, their time on set together was nothing but peaceful. But that ends today, folks. It ends now.
Sheen versus Lohan. Get your popcorn/breathalyzers ready.
Best Past Performance
Charlie Sheen: "Wall Street" (1987)
Verdict: "Mean Girls" represents the pinnacle of Lindsay Lohan hotness. She was staggeringly pretty in "Mean Girls," to the point where, sure, we noticed Amanda Seyfried, Rachel McAdams and Lacey Chabert next to her at the lunch table but remained completely disinterested in them, like Aaron Samuels. (Aaron Samuels was the worst, by the way. Cool bowl cut, »

In this week's epsiode of The Flashbacking - sorry, The Following - we learned a bit more about Ryan Hardy's tragic past, checked another Followinger off our list, and heightened the threat levels for one of the supposed "good guys". Oh - and there was lots more stabbing and a shower threesome, if you're into those kinds of things.
We start with a touching scene of Paul (Adan Canto) and Meghan (Li Jun Li) chatting like old friends who have just brutally beaten and kidnapped one another after a few drinks. Jacob (Nico Tortorella) and Emma (Valorie Curry) tell Paul he'd better clean up his mess - Emma goes further by telling him to "kill her and bury her behind the stable, barn, whatever." Anyone else shocked she's not entirely familiar with the term "stable"?
Paul tells Jacob that he's tired of all his lies - and at this point »
The 2012 RopeofSilicon Movie Awards 2012 was a curious year for movies. To look at a year in movies at a glance we often turn straight to blockbusters and in the case of 2012 it may seem as if it really wasn't that great a year. Then you begin to drill down deeper and even films that divided the audience created large amounts of discussions, and beyond blockbusters there were plenty of middle ground to small-budget indie features that were quite powerful. As far as discussion pieces go, here on RopeofSilicon a lot of time was dedicated to divisive films as The Grey, Prometheus and Looper. A conversation involving the ending of The Grey was quite popular, I posed theories on Looper's theme more than once, the Zero Dark Thirty torture controversy was annoying, but necessary and the movie that probably generated the most conversation was Prometheus, of which I wrote a massive six-page exploratory article. »

Welcome to the first in what will be a series of weekly columns updating the state of the Oscar race. We'll continue to trace who's ahead and who's a long shot as we gauge the impact of each week's new developments, from the critics' prizes to the Golden Globes to the various guild awards. The next couple of weeks will be especially eventful, with the National Society of Film Critics, the Critics Choice Awards and the Globes all weighing in, as well as the Oscar nominations themselves. The nominations come a few days earlier than normal this year, on Jan. 10, before the Critics Choice and Globe trophies are handed out, so this will be the first year those prizes have had no influence on the process of whittling down eligible films for Oscar nods. The early deadline also means less time for Academy members to see all the eligible movies, »
