North Korea can rest easy: America comes off looking at least as bad as the Dprk in “The Interview,” an alleged satire that’s about as funny as a communist food shortage, and just as protracted. For all its pre-release hullabaloo — including two big thumbs down from Sony hackers the Guardians of Peace — this half-baked burlesque about a couple of cable-news bottom-feeders tasked with assassinating Korean dictator Kim Jong-un won’t bring global diplomacy to its knees, but should feel like a kind of terror attack to any audience with a limited tolerance for anal penetration jokes. Extreme devotees of stars James Franco and Seth Rogen (who also co-directed with Evan Goldberg) may give this Christmas offering a pass, but all others be advised: An evening of cinematic waterboarding awaits.
Rogen and Goldberg, who made their combined directorial debut on last year’s shrewdly funny Jewish apocalypse romp, “This Is the End, »

There is poetry in all things, if we only know where to look. The poet’s job is to notice this wonderment, this awesome beauty of everyday life and everything around us and put it into words so we can realize what an amazing thing life and the world really is.
The Color Of Time is a daring experimental film based on the poetry of C.K. Williams, a Pulitzer Prize winner. I read a lot but quite frankly poetry is not my favorite, especially newer and current poets. After viewing The Color Of Time I intend to seek out C.K. Williams’ poetry. A lovely and wonderful little film has been fashioned from his work.
We see and hear the real C.K. Williams at the beginning and end of the film. In between we see different stages of his life, written and directed by eight credited people, none »

Vanessa Hudgens has been granted a restraining order against an alleged stalker. The 'Spring Breakers' actress went to court after Junior Kabongo travelled from Africa to Los Angeles to meet her after sending her a string of ''extremely graphic'' emails in which he also declared his intentions to marry her. One of the messages he sent read: ''Hello, I love you and want to marry you.'' And another, more graphic one, read: ''God gave me a penis to make you feel like you never did everytime when we'll make love.(sic)'' In a third email, Kabongo also expressed his desire to pursue a Hollywood career. According to TMZ, he wrote: ''I love you and wanna marry you. I Write Screenplays. I wanna become a movie star.(sic)'' Kabongo then told the 25-year-old beauty he had booked a flight to Los Angeles to meet with her. »

Neil Calloway outlines how cinemas should deal with etiquette rule breakers…
2014 seems to be the year of cinema rage. Earlier this week, a Us film festival screening of Mike Leigh’s Mr Turner was interrupted when one viewer asked another to turn off her mobile phone. She responded by giving him a faceful of pepper spray. This follows the altogether more tragic news that a man was shot after a confrontation during Lone Survivor earlier in the year.
Obviously the people involved are in the wrong and crossed over a line. For a start, who thinks when they’re going to the cinema “right, I need my wallet, keys, 9mm handgun”? In a cinema, the violence should be kept on the screen, not in the aisles. Having said that, those that play with their mobile phone during a film should be treated with nothing but contempt, and kicked out of the cinema. »

Riff Raff, aka the rapper who inspired James Franco's character, Alien, in Spring Breakers, is creating quite a stir with his new music video. It's for a song called "TiP Toe WiNG iN My JAWWDiNZ," which I am led to believe translates to "Tiptoeing in my Jordans," as in Air Jordans. I really thought I'd seen it all when the "Ugly Boy" video came out last week, but this is truly something else. Riff Raff sits atop an icy throne as a grasshopper dances on some kind of squash. (Or is it a melon?) Dogs are walking around in shoes, there's a smoke machine involved, and obviously, Riff Raff's grill is a sight to behold. Out of all of this, I'm most insulted by the gratuitous product placement for energy drinks. In all honesty though, you might want to watch the video, if not just to gawk at it. »
The perpetually busy James Franco might just begin his 2015 with the Park City launch-padding of (among others) Pamela Romanowsky’s sophomore film which comes across as an interplay between fiction and fact. Prior to landing The Adderall Diaries at (count ‘em four) Sundance Institute’s Screenwriter’s Lab, the Director’s Lab, the Producer’s Summit, and the Film Music and Sound Design Lab at Skywalker Sound all in 2013, Romanowsky directed Franco in The Color of Time (formerly titled “Tar”) which also starred Mila Kunis, Jessica Chastain and Zach Braff. Shooting began in May of this year, with Franco leading a cast comprised of Amber Heard and Christian Slater. Worth noting is Robert Redford has an executive producer cred, could it follow in the same fest berth as his last executive produced film, Drunktown’s Finest?
