You know what was on TV last night? Breaking Dawn Part 2. It’s only been a few years and already that movie isn’t aging well. I’m a Twilight fan and even I can’t justify why it has more CGI than a Pixar movie. (For a hilarious play-by-play of the books, read Zachary Little’s blog.) But I digress. American Ultra looks SICK. I can’t wait to see it when I get back to the States. It’s a dark comedy about a stoner (Jesse Eisenberg) who’s about to propose to his girlfriend (Kristen
Remember when a dozen Native American actors walked off the set of Adam Sandler’s Ridiculous Six back in April because they were tired of all the racist bullsh-t? Yeah, Adam Sandler wants you to know it was a “misunderstanding”. In an enlightening interview at the premiere of his new movie Pixels, he told the Associated Press, “It was just a misunderstanding and once the movie is out, it will be cleared up.” That is, if anyone watches it by then. Sandler also farted out this
Have you ever felt second-hand embarrassment for someone? It’s almost more excruciating than feeling it yourself. I believe they call it Schadenfreude. That’s what I felt watching this cringeworthy trailer for Queen of the Desert, starring Nicole Kidman, Damian Lewis, James Franco and Robert Pattinson. This is not to be confused with Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, in which three drag queens travel across Australia. Why the producers didn’t pick up on this gaff is beyond me.
Not that there isn’t still a long way to go. But man, things used to be way sh-ttier. New posters for Suffragette were released on Tuesday, Emmeline Pankhurst Day in the UK. Image credit: Ruby Films Carey Mulligan plays a young working mother who joins the campaign for women’s right to vote in Britain. She’s flanked by fellow suffragettes, played by Anne-Marie Duff and Helena Bonham Carter. There are so many good one-liners. I like the one where Mulligan’s character says “We
This movie is so meta, it’s like the Inception of indies. It’s hard to sum up, but here goes: Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche), an aging actress is having a hard time coming to terms with not being the flavor of the month anymore. Then her personal assistant, Valentine (Kristen Stewart) talks her into signing on to another production of the play that made her famous when she was young. (Coincidentally, director, Olivier Assayas co-wrote the screenplay for Rendez-Vous, which wa
I had been dying to see this since its debut in Cannes last May, and my sister was generous enough to watch it with me the other night. Tale of Tales is an extravagant fantasy horror film that revolves around three main stories: The first is about a barren queen (Salma Hayek) who is advised to consume a sea dragon’s heart cooked by a virgin, in order to conceive. The king (John C. Reilly) dies retrieving it for her, and soon both queen and virgin give birth to identical albin
While Taylor Swift was barbecuing for hundreds of her model friends this weekend, Katy Perry was named FORBES’ third highest paid celebrity of 2015 (aside from Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, who topped the list). That means she beat out Swift and Beyoncé. It turns out she didn’t need a “1984” revenge song, or a gimmicky music video. She’s richer than God. Perry landed the July cover of Forbes as the wealthiest non-boxer celebrity wearing (of course) a jacket covered in
