Jodie Foster movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘The Accused,’ ‘The Silence of the Lambs’

Jodie Foster movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘The Accused,’ ‘The Silence of the Lambs’
Jodie Foster has been a working actress for over half a century. That fact is a bit surprising since she is only 55 years old. Foster started acting when she was only three and was cast in a famous Coppertone sun tan lotion commercial. The appearance led to numerous other commercials and guest appearances on practically all the popular TV shows of that era such as “Bonanza”, “The Courtship of Eddie’s Father”, and “Gunsmoke”. She would also take over Tatum O’Neal’s Oscar winning role in “Paper Moon” when that show was made into a television series. While she worked steadily none of her television series were particularly successful which probably helped her avoid the typecasting that kids from “The Brady Bunch” and other shows faced.

She only began to earn name recognition in her early teen years when she starred in a number of successful films, some directed by Martin Scorsese.

Billboard Hot 100: Florida Georgia Line & Bebe Rexha (‘Meant to Be’) rise to new heights, but Drake reigns for week 8

The top three on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart are immovable for yet another week. Drake remains at number-one for an eighth week in a row with “God’s Plan,” followed again by Ed Sheeran (“Perfect”) at number-two and Bruno Mars and Cardi B (“Finesse”) at number-three. But right behind them is a song on the rise: “Meant to Be” by Florida Georgia Line and Bebe Rexha, which rises one spot to number-four. That’s a personal best for both artists.

Before this Rexha’s personal best was, well, last week’s chart when “Meant to Be” was number-five, so this just continues to improve her all-time highest mark. But for Florida Georgia Line this is a milestone they haven’t reached since their debut single “Cruise” peaked at number-four in 2013. This may be especially good timing for the country artists as they’re looking to reclaim Vocal Duo of

Review Round-Up: The Housemaid, Are We Not Cats, The Cured

  • DailyDead
February has been a busy month, as there have been a ton of indie genre offerings coming out each and every week, and I had a chance to check out a trio of recent titles: The Cured from Irish filmmaker David Freyne, the quirky romance/body horror hybrid Are We Not Cats, and Derek Nguyen’s gothic romance, The Housemaid.

The Cured: Right from the start, it is evident that writer/director David Freyne wasn’t looking to make a typical zombie movie, as The Cured begins its story at a juncture where most filmmakers never venture: a deadly zombie outbreak has been curbed after a cure has been discovered, and those no longer afflicted by the disease are able to rejoin the general population. Of course, this causes a myriad of problems, as society doesn’t exactly welcome the former flesh eaters back with open arms, causing a deep

The Jerusalem-based Sam Spiegel International Film Lab, whose alumni include Academy Award winner Laszlo Nemes (“Son of Saul”) and Nadav Lapid (“The Kindergarten Teacher”), has unveiled the names of the 12 emerging filmmakers on board for the program’s seventh edition.

The chosen artists will be mentored by award-winning Israeli director Avi Nesher, British script consultant Clare Downs and French screenwriter Jacques Akchoti.

Since launching, the Sam Spiegel Lab has had an enviable track record, with about 75% of projects presented at the program actually being produced. These include “Son of Saul,” which won Cannes’ Grand Jury Prize, and “The Kindergarten Teacher.”

Under the new leadership of Lior Sasson, who has taken over from Ifat Tubi as co-director alongside Renen Schorr, the lab’s pitching event will be expanded to four days and will now take place independently from the Jerusalem Film Festival. The event is scheduled for July 5-8.

The Quad Salutes Lois Smith by Screening Her Career Highlights

Smith in “Marjorie Prime

Just days ago Lois Smith received this year’s Golden Key Award for Career Achievement at the Key West Film Festival. Now comes word that the industry vet will be honored at New York City’s Quad Cinema. Four of her career highlights will be screened: “East of Eden,” “Five Easy Pieces,” “Foxes,” and “Marjorie Prime.” Released earlier this year, the latter sees Smith playing a former violinist in the middle stages of dementia. She maintains a close relationship with her late husband who exists in the form of a holographic projection (Jon Hamm, “Mad Men”). Smith received excellent reviews for the sci-fi flick.

“Enjoying her seventh decade onscreen, actress par excellence Lois Smith was recently on view at the Quad recreating her stage triumph with her beautiful multifaceted performance in ‘Marjorie Prime’ — and now she’s back in theaters with ‘Lady Bird,’” an announcement from The Quad reads.

Review: "Foxes" (1980) Starring Jodie Foster And Scott Baio; Blu-ray Special Edition From Kino Lorber Studio Classics

  • CinemaRetro
By David Savage

Kino Lorber was right to bring out Foxes (1980) in Blu-ray under their Kl Studio Classics series. The elegant re-issue seems aimed at convincing film snobs that this little gem from the last days of disco finally deserves their attention after a distance of 35 years, during which time it was either dismissed as another insignificant teen comedy of the ‘80s, or as a guilty pleasure. But longtime champions of the film, myself included, need no convincing. We owned the clamshell VHS, we owned the first-generation DVD, and now, if anything, I’d venture to say we feel vindicated that it now carries the stamp as a bonafide classic by a home video label as respected as Kino Lorber. Indeed, a major fist-pump moment comes during director Adrian Lyne’s remark in the audio commentary that Roger Ebert selected it as his favorite film of 1980 and took it with

Lady Gaga to work with Giorgio Moroder on new music
Lady Gaga will work on new music with Giorgio Moroder in the coming weeks.

The legendary producer admitted that he was supposed to meet up with the Us singer earlier in the year, but their studio session had to be pushed back.

Asked who his favourite modern artists are, Moroder told Digital Spy and other journalists: "I love Rihanna and I'm going to work with Lady Gaga when I'm back.

"I was going to meet her in the studio about a week ago, but I had a terrible cold so I couldn't. So of the new [artists], those two are great."

The musician also revealed that he has plans to work on a new movie soundtrack, after making his name with music for Midnight Express, Flashdance and Superman III back in the 1970s and '80s.

"I have an offer to do a big movie," he said. "I cannot tell you

Laura Dern on ‘Wild,’ ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ and IMDb Lying About Her Age

Laura Dern on ‘Wild,’ ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ and IMDb Lying About Her Age
Laura Dern spent this year on the big screen battling cancer — in “The Fault in Our Stars,” her teenage daughter suffers from a terminal diagnosis, and in “Wild,” she’s the sick mom of hiker-memoirist Cheryl Strayed. Dern spoke to Variety at the Hamptons Film Festival over the weekend about both roles.

Did you think you were too young to play Reese Witherspoon’s mom in “Wild”?

We all did, which was really good news for my ego. We’re six years apart. Don’t check IMDb, because they are wrong about my age, and I think they are probably wrong about hers too. It’s so insane that everybody goes by IMDb.

By how many years are they off?

Only by two, but it means a lot. They have that I’m 47. I’m going to be 46, people. I’m really pissed. We’ve got to change that. But anyway,

'The Voice' recap: The Top 5 perform, make heartfelt dedications

It's come to this. There are only three spots available in next week's Season 4 finale on "The Voice," with five incredibly talented artists vying for a spot. Who will make the cut? Will coaches Adam Levine, Usher or Shakira be knocked out of the competition, as each only have one left? It's incredibly likely. Will Blake Shelton move into the finals with both of his remaining artists? That's more unsure.

The Swon Brothers took the stage first, dedicating "Turn The Page" by Bob Seger to all the guys in Oklahoma who've ever played with them. Adam and Usher praise them for dedicating it to the ones who really matter. Blake says the performance set the tone for the night.

Danielle Bradbery and Amber Carrington get video messages from Tim McGraw and Katy Perry, respectively, which is pretty cool.

Globe Nomination Announcement

The Globe Nominations were announced bright and early... I followed on CNN the only live stream that seemed to be working. They began with the credits for their 70th anniversary and a weird applause break (without initial applause) for Cecil B DeMille Tribute winner Jodie Foster. After that the first Mr Golden Globe was revealed (Sam Fox, son of the Michael J Foxes) along with our usual Miss Golden Globe (this time that's Francesca Eastwood, daughter of Clint & Francesca)

Megan Fox started us the announcements but Jessica Alba also joined in.

Casting Bits: Alison Brie and Lizzy Caplan in ‘Save the Date;’ Jocelin Donahue and Gillian Jacobs in ‘Live at the Foxes Den;’ More For ‘American Reunion’

Casting Bits: Alison Brie and Lizzy Caplan in ‘Save the Date;’ Jocelin Donahue and Gillian Jacobs in ‘Live at the Foxes Den;’ More For ‘American Reunion’
First thought upon hearing the plot for the just-announced comedy Save the Date: "another goddamn wedding movie?" First thought after seeing the cast: "I can't believe I'm going to be excited to see another goddamn wedding movie!" The script focuses on two sisters and their approaches to life and marriage: "one who's happy with the status quo and doesn't see any reason to marry her musician boyfriend while the other's obsessed with planning her upcoming wedding." (Melancholia much?) But the cast is already impressive: Alison Brie (Community, Mad Men) and Lizzy Caplan (Mean Girls, Party Down) play the sisters and Marin Starr (Adventureland, Party Down), Geoffrey Arend (Super Troopers) and Mark Weber (Scott Pilgrim) are the supporting cast we've got so far. And I don't need any more than that -- ticket sold. The script is by graphic novelist Jeffrey Brown, and Mike Mohan will direct the film in July in La.
