Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” opens this weekend, and to get you in the mood, here’s a look at the first film version of the Lewis Carroll tale ever made.

21 Movies That’ll Make You Cry

Movies That Will Make You Cry
Sometimes it feels as though winter will never end, and thinking about waiting what feels like forever for the flowers, warmth, and daylight to return can make a girl feel a little blue. I needed an old-school catharsis the other day, so I turned to Netflix. Every once in a while, we all need a good cry, so here are 21 suggestions for flicks that’ll bring really bring on the tears. If you think you might not have seen some of these flicks and don’t want the reason you’ll cry spoiled for you (like a few of them were for our poor copy editor, Joanne — sorry!), don’t read any further.

Women Don’t Need Heads On SeXXXy Movie Posters

Heads — who needs ‘em? Not the comely pair of Louboutin-clad legs in this poster for the movie “Middle Men.” The flick, starring Luke Wilson and Giovanni Ribisi, is about a straight-laced businessman who helps start one of the world’s first porn websites and gets entangled with the Russian mob. Do we think Luke is offended his crotch didn’t make the “Middle Men” poster? [Slash Film] Keep reading »

“The Runaways” Is Going To Be The Hotness

I really love a biopic, even when I’m not aware of the subject’s backstory beforehand. So I’ve marked my calendar, making March 19 the day of “The Runaways.” Not only does this film tell the story of the short-lived band that made Joan Jett (Kristen Stewart) and Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning) rock stars, but it also has some hot-ass and glamorous ’70s fashions.

How To Get More Women In Front Of The Camera? Get More Behind It.

We’re hoping that women like Kathryn Bigelow, the woman behind “The Hurt Locker” who could win the Oscar for Best Director this year, will begin to give voice to the silent minority in Hollywood: women. A recent study done at the University of Southern California turned up some disheartening stats about women in film. Of the 100 blockbuster films of 2007 that were studied, only 17 percent of them were written, directed, or produced by women. Even worse, they found that women were minorities onscreen as well. Female actresses were given only 30 percent of all speaking parts. (I wonder how many women were seen and not heard—that would be interesting to know.) While those findings are fairly depressing, there is some good news. Films with women writers, directors, and producers had about twice as many parts for females. So it sounds like the key to building women’s influence in Hollywood is for ladies to make their own material. Sure, it may be intimidating to go up against your allegedly egomaniacal ex for an Oscar, but if Kathryn wins (and even if she doesn’t), she’ll be an inspiration to up-and-coming females in the movie biz. Here’s to equality in Tinsel Town. [AOL] Keep reading »
