“Valentine’s Day” Promotion Gets “De-Gayed”

Valentine’s Day is coming! And with it the usual traditions that include an outrageous price hike in roses, an outrageous price hike in restaurant dining, and the well-timed rom-com. The role of the latter belongs to a flick to be released on Feb. 12, “Valentine’s Day.” (What a clever title, eh?) Keep reading »

Highlights (Or Lowlights?) Of The 2010 Razzie Nominations

The recent announcement of Academy Award nominations may have people blogging, talking, tweeting and a host of other verbs ending in -ing about the best films of the past year. But what about the worst? To keep things in perspective, on the same day of the Oscar nomination announcements, the Razzies also released their nods. For those who don’t know, the Razzies are the awards created to celebrate, or at least point fingers at, the worst films and performances of the year. And this year, like most, they seem to have done a pretty accurate job, even if they did pick on “New Moon“—gasp. Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Edge of Darkness,” “When In Rome,” “Saint John Of Las Vegas”

TGIF! It’s what you’ve been toiling all week for—the weekend! And you can do whatever you want. Drive to Mexico, learn French, floss for once—the world is your oyster. And of course, there is always the movies. If you had a rough week and need to get out some aggression, you might want to watch Mel Gibson beat up some shady folks in “Edge of Darkness.” If you’re totally sick of all the dead-beat dudes in your life, pretend that you believe in magic and catch Kristen Bell in “When in Rome.” And if you’re just in a mood to run away to Vegas, catch Steve Buscemi in “Saint John of Las Vegas.” Keep reading »

Notes From Sundance, Take 6: “Teenage Paparazzo” Is A Must-See

OK, first of all, who’s sexier than Adrian Grenier? Pretty much nobody. On film, in person, digitally—the guy’s just hot. It’s hard to call a favorite film at Sundance this year, but if I have to recommend a purely fascinating film, go see the absolutely scrumptious Adrian’s “Teenage Paparazzo.” It’s a documentary but, wait, don’t stop reading. This flick has got everything: friendship, suspense, danger, (fake) romance, and personal growth. The cast is composed of a long list of stars, all talking about the invasion of their personal lives by paparazzi—one of whom is 13 years old.

An Ode To Zelda Rubinstein

Actress Zelda Rubinstein passed away yesterday at the age of 76 of natural causes. Zelda may be most well-known as Tangina in “Poltergeist,” but as far as I’m concerned, her finest work was in a little-known film called “Teen Witch” that I was obsessed with back in the day. If you had cable in the late ’80s, there’s no way you missed Zelda as the witch, Madame Serena, in this classic musical. I have one word for you: Netflix. Get back to me after you’ve seen it and we can have a “Top That!” sing-a-long. Zelda may have been small, but she had some huge acting chops. After the jump, some more of Zelda’s performances you might have missed. [PopEater] Keep reading »

Brutal Beatings In “The Killer Inside Me” Shock Sundance Crowds

The Sundance Film Festival is the place for new movies to get initial buzz. For Michael Winterbottom’s film “The Killer Inside Me,” the reaction seems to be outrage. The film is an adaption of Jim Thompson’s 1952 novel of the same name, and offers a dark and cruel look inside the mind of a vicious serial killer who takes a sickening delight in torturing and murdering women. It’s an aspect of the book that Winterbottom gruesomely exploits on screen. The trailer/highlight reel shows footage of Jessica Alba‘s character getting violently whipped and later beaten by the murderer, played by Casey Affleck. A beating that viewers of the film have said not only leaves Alba’s character dead, but her jaw bone exposed. The rest of her face resembles “hamburger meat.” Kate Hudson’s character is also brutally attacked in the film in a similar display of violence that leaves her with a broken windpipe. Keep reading »
