Julianne Moore Was Sure She Was Snubbed

Julianne Moore explains how she found out that both she and Annette Bening were nominated for Golden Globes for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical for “The Kids Are All Right.” [NY Post] Keep reading »

“Zoolander 2″ Is In The Works!

“I just saw [Ben Stiller] now and we’re talking about doing another ‘Zoolander’ movie. … I think there’s a really good script and I think we’re going to do it.”

—Hansel, I mean Owen Wilson, makes our Christmas dreams come true. Normally, sequels are abysmal, but even if “Zoolander 2″ were 60 percent less funny than the original, it would still be amazing. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

It’s been a pretty exciting year for movies, what with “Black Swan,” “Blue Valentine,” “Catfish,” “The Social Network, ” etc, etc. So, when the Golden Globe Awards announced its nominees this morning, guess which flick got the most nods? “The King’s Speech.” Yep, the movie none of us saw starring Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter.

Oh-so excited to see anything having to do with the Beastie Boys. I believe this gives us all license to ill. [Sterogum] Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “The Fighter,” “The Tourist,” “The Chronicles of Narnia,” And “The Tempest”

This week’s movies are like that period in music when bands all started putting “The” in front of a noun and making that the name of their band. I guess it sounds like more of a declaration or something. Or a claiming of whatever particular noun. Whatever it is, it’s pissing me off. Just kidding. I could care less. Go see a movie. Or don’t. I can’t tell you how to live your life. But call your mother. She worries. Keep reading »

A New Take On “Something Blue”

I was hoping that “Avatar” fever had died down, but Wu Lingyuan, China, is keeping it alive. This region contains the mountain ranges in the movie, and enterprising citizens have found a way to turn that into dollar signs by offering “Avatar” wedding packages. The view is gorgeous, but takers are a little less excited about the Na’vi provided. As one recent bride explained, “The Na’vi were a couple of forestry workers dressed up in long underwear dyed blue wearing some very unconvincing masks. It was really pathetic.” Lucky for us, she had the picture to back it up. [/Film] Keep reading »

Bradley Cooper Shills A Wonder Pill That Will Improve Your Life 200 Percent

In this video, Bradley Cooper tries to get you to buy a pill to make you, well, awesomer. “Before, I was unmotivated, unhirable, and undatable. I was a complete and utter mess,” he says. “And then I discovered NZT and my life changed.” OK, fine, Bradley isn’t really trying to sell you this—it’s for his new movie, “Limitless,” in which he stars alongside Robert De Niro and Abbie Cornish. I appreciate the authenticity of the spoof, from the background music to the random shots of Bradley swimming in the ocean. Keep reading »

Ryan Gosling And Michelle Williams Have Slam-Dunk Sex

“I felt like Scottie Pippin and she was Michael Jordan. Every time I gave her the ball, she just flew through the air and she slam-dunked it.”

Ryan Gosling on his sexy scenes with Michelle Williams in “Blue Valentine.” We do love a sports/sex metaphor. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »

“Blue Valentine” Gets NC-17 Rating Overturned

We’ve been gearing up for the Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams movie, “Blue Valentine,” for ages now. And so we weren’t happy when the movie was given an NC-17 rating due to an implied oral sex scene. What this means, in the grand scheme of things, is that the Motion Pictures Association of America (MPAA) hates female sexual pleasure. And indie filmmakers. And indie actors.

But luckily, they just overturned their decision, which means I take back those mean things I just said about them. But I’m still skeptical of their intentions. Keep reading »
