'Weinstein was the industry. I was just another actress': shaking up film and TV

The women and men changing their industry

• The MP activists cleaning up Westminster

• Actors, directors and producers changing theatre

• Fighting the supermarkets for equal pay

• Sportspeople pushing for a level playing field

“When I was growing up, a film producer was a rich, fat man with his feet on the table and a cigar in his mouth,” says Rebecca O’Brien, an independent producer and long-time collaborator of director Ken Loach. “And now, you know, that’s me. Apart from rich and fat.”

“That’s me, apart from rich,” quips her friend, Suffragette producer Alison Owen, who worked on five Harvey Weinstein films, including Proof (2005) with Gwyneth Paltrow and, more recently, Tulip Fever. Last year Owen acknowledged her former colleague’s “sleazeball” reputation and spoke out in support of the women who came forward. She is now working towards legislation against harassment in the film and TV industry.

Ranking the Star Wars Films by their Lightsaber Battles

  • Cinelinx
All cinematic lightsaber battles are not equal. This is a ranking of the Star Wars films based on the Lightsaber battles that they portray.

The Lightsaber is an iconic and unique part of the Star Wars universe much in the same way we associate the Proton Pack with Ghostbusters, or the phaser to Star Trek. The inclusion of this futuristic light sword into Star Wars came from George Lucas’ love of fantasy serials, which frequently featured characters with swords. Much in the same way that medieval Knights represented a regal and noble order of combatants, the Jedi represents an individual devoted towards upholding peace and justice. It was only fitting then that they received a weapon that would represent the dignity of their status and charge. Of course, those good guys need someone to fight, and so the major enemies of the Jedi also tend to have Lightsabers.

Riverdale season 2 episode 6 review: Death Proof

Chris Cummins Nov 16, 2017

A timely episode of Riverdale mixes the serious with the supremely goofy. Spoilers ahead in our review...

2.6 Death Proof

Tonight's episode began with another obvious yet still true observation from Jughead - that we often wear masks that cover who we really are. Although this episode was written and filmed before the Harvey Weinstein/Louis Ck/et al stories broke, its impossible to view it outside of the context of that news cycle and how it gave rise to the #metoo movement. There's a lot going on in this week's episode but the most important element here is far and away the Cheryl/Nick/Veronica storyline. Last week we saw Nick St. Clair go transform from New York City-based textbook case

Harvey Weinstein’s Rape Allegations: Nicole Kidman, Hillary Clinton, Anthony Bourdain, and More Speak Out (Updated)

Harvey Weinstein’s Rape Allegations: Nicole Kidman, Hillary Clinton, Anthony Bourdain, and More Speak Out (Updated)
Today’s New Yorker article revealed new allegations against Harvey Weinstein — including accusations he raped actress Asia Argento and two others — and prompted a number of Hollywood’s elite, politicians, and other notable names to issue statements and take to Twitter to support the brave women who have come forward to tell their stories.

It has been five days since the first Weinstein bombshell came in the form of a New York Times article — based on six months of exhaustive reporting by Jodi Kantor and Megan Thowhey — which detailed numerous accounts of sexual assault, harassment, and monetary settlements. Since the Times article, many in Hollywood have remained quiet, but with Sunday’s firing of Weinstein by his company’s board of directors and today’s article written by Ronan Farrow, the floodgates have opened.

Chelsea Clinton, Jessica Chastain and More React to the Latest Harvey Weinstein Exposé
Following last week’s New York Times exposé on Harvey Weinstein, the New Yorker Tuesday morning published another explosive story regarding the Hollywood mogul’s alleged sexual assault and harassment of many women in the industry.

In light of the New Yorker’s story, even more celebrity reactions have stormed social media. Leonardo DiCaprio, Mia Farrow, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton, Mandy Moore, Lena Dunham, and Rose McGowan are just a few public figures who have addressed the New Yorker article.

Mia Farrow, mother of the New Yorker article’s author Ronan Farrow, expressed her respect for women who spoke up and her pride in her son’s work.

Deep respect for each woman who told their story, not knowing what they’d face. And I’m so proud of @RonanFarrow https://t.co/OdOOnG40G2

Mark Hamill Proves Luke Is Not Too Short to Be a Stormtrooper

Mark Hamill Proves Luke Is Not Too Short to Be a Stormtrooper
Mark Hamill has taken to social media to prove once and for all that he is not too short to be a Stormtrooper. In the original Star Wars, Luke Skywalker and the gang infiltrate the Death Star to rescue Princess Leia. When Skywalker finds Leia in her cell, he gets dissed. "Aren't you a little short for s Stormtrooper?", the princess quips before Luke can get his helmet off. As with most things in the Star Wars universe, that quote has been picked apart and examined over and over for decades, but now Hamill has finally put the speculation to rest.

The news comes to us via Mark Hamill's Twitter page and features two original Star Wars action figures being measured. One action figure is a vintage Luke Skywalker while the other is a vintage Stormtrooper and as it turns out, Luke is slightly taller than the Stormtrooper. The

Film News Roundup: Annette Bening to Star in Christoph Waltz’s Directorial Debut ‘Georgetown’

Film News Roundup: Annette Bening to Star in Christoph Waltz’s Directorial Debut ‘Georgetown’
In today’s film news roundup, Annette Bening has joined Christoph Waltz and Vanessa Redgrave in “Georgetown,” Lionsgate has acquired U.S. rights to Roland Emmerich’s World War II movie “Midway,” and Film Movement has bought three documentaries.

Casting

Annette Bening has joined Christoph Waltz and Vanessa Redgrave in the crime drama “Georgetown.” The film, which is shooting in Canada, marks Waltz’s directorial debut.

The project, based on the New York Times Magazine article by Franklin Foer, centers on Albrecht Muth (played by Waltz), an eccentric social climber who seduced and married a wealthy older widow, Viola Drath, portrayed by Redgrave. Muth and Drath entered the top political circles as they threw lavish events, with Muth lying extensively about his background — which came to light after Drath was found murdered in 2011 at their home in Georgetown.

Muth was 26 when he married the 71-year-old Drath in 1990. He was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to 50 years

The Best War Movies of the 21st Century, From ‘Dunkirk’ to ‘The Hurt Locker’

The Best War Movies of the 21st Century, From ‘Dunkirk’ to ‘The Hurt Locker’
Ron Perlman would have us believe that war never changes, but the movies about it certainly have. The last 15 years have brought no shortage of films about the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan (for obvious reasons), but World War II continues to fascinate filmmakers most of all. That includes Christopher Nolan, whose recent hit “Dunkirk” manages to bring something new to a genre that constantly feels at risk of becoming old hat.

Read More‘Dunkirk’ Is Too Loud For Some Viewers, But Christopher Nolan Says That’s the Way He Likes It

And while those two conflicts have dominated the genre of late, everything from the Civil War to the Battle of Red Cliffs has found powerful expression onscreen. Kathryn Bigelow’s “The Hurt Locker” tells us that “war is a drug,” and the films below suggest that movies about war are just as addictive — maybe even more so.

Competition: Win ‘Donnie Darko’ on Arrow Video DVD

To celebrate the brand new 4K restoration of Donnie Darko – out 9th Jan. 2017 on DVD & Blu-ray – we are giving away a DVD of the Theatrical Cut courtesy of Arrow Video.

Fifteen years before Stranger Things combined science-fiction, Spielberg-ian touches and 80s nostalgia to much acclaim, Richard Kelly set the template – and the high-water mark – with his debut feature.

Described by its director as “The Catcher in the Rye as told by Philip K. Dick”, Donnie Darko combines an eye-catching, eclectic cast – pre-stardom Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, heartthrob Patrick Swayze, former child star Drew Barrymore, Oscar nominees Mary McDonnell and Katherine Ross, and television favourite Noah Wyle – and an evocative soundtrack of 80s classics by Echo and the Bunnymen, Tears for Fears and Duran Duran.

This brand-new 4K restoration, supervised by Richard Kelly, allows a modern classic to finally receive the home video treatment it deserves.

Gwyneth Paltrow Explains How You Can Drink a Lot and Still Look Like Her

Gwyneth Paltrow Explains How You Can Drink a Lot and Still Look Like Her
Gwyneth Paltrow may look like she subsists primarily on wild salmon and cucumber water, but the actress admits she’s not above a good junk food splurge.

In an interview with Leandra Medine of the Man Repeller, Paltrow dishes on the difficulty of adhering to a strict diet all the time. “I try to eat organic food when I can, eat local food when I can, and eat as little processed food as possible,” she says, “but sometimes you need a bag of Doritos and a beer in an airport.”

Medine also asks her if she “drinks a lot,” to which Paltrow responds affirmatively.
