Trailer Park: “Easy A,” “The Town,” “Catfish,” “Leaves of Grass,” “Jack Goes Boating,” “The Freebie”

We are merely days away from autumn and thank goodness for that, because along with the sweaters and leaves comes some quality movies. This might be the first time ever that I want to see every single movie that is coming out (except for the creepy animated wolf movie I conveniently left off of the list). There’s comedy, intrigue, romance, and a lot of amazing actors who’ve been on the down-low for a bit. There’s the eagerly awaited “Easy A,” the Ben Affleck-directed “The Town,” reality thriller “Catfish,” and Edward Norton‘s newest, “Leaves of Grass.” Also: Philip Seymour Hoffman learns to swim in “Jack Goes Boating” and Dax Shepard and his wife make a deal with “The Freebie.” Go see a frickin’ movie. And call your mother—she worries. Keep reading »

Emma Stone Says Faking It Is Hard

“Oh, for the love, I can’t even simulate sex without dying! I had a little asthma attack, without any prior knowledge that I had asthma, during the scene where we had to jump up and down for hours and hours screaming and yelling on the bed. [It] was humiliating, because it was the second day of shooting.”

“For Colored Girls”: Watch The Trailer, See The Film

My mind was silent, but my heart was racing as I watched the trailer for Tyler Perry’s “For Colored Girls,” a film based on Ntozake Shange’s choreopoem For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf. The trailer seems so powerful that I no longer have any doubt that Perry handled this acclaimed work with care. Oh why can’t Nov. 5 be tomorrow so I can see this important film already? I’m going to read the original one more time to prepare myself. Will you see “For Colored Girls”? Keep reading »

David Schwimmer Directs A Movie About A Rape

When I heard that David Schwimmer had directed a movie premiering at the Toronto Film Festival, I assumed it would be a humorous documentary about paleontologists or a romantic comedy about a guy named Russ who’s in love with a woman named Bachel. But I was surprised to see that Schwimmer’s movie is neither of the above. In fact, “Trust” is about maybe the last topic I would’ve guessed Schwimmer would be interested in—rape. Keep reading »

Drew Barrymore Thinks Justin Long Is The “Cat’s Pajamas”

Starring in a movie with your ex and possibly current boyfriend has some interesting consequences. One of them—that you’re asked about your relationship so many freaking times that you run out of words to describe it. So we are happy to see Drew Barrymore getting so creative with her slang in describing Justin Long while she promotes “Going the Distance.” Here’s her most recent quote about him in the new Harper’s Bazaar: “I couldn’t love, respect, admire and enjoy that individual more than I do. It would be physically impossible for me to have any more giggly joy at this person… He’s the cat’s pajamas.” In Drew’s honor, can we bring back the phrase “cat’s pajamas”? I think that’s cute.

I’m Too Distracted To Say Anything Important About Angelina Jolie And Johnny Depp’s “The Tourist”


Angelina Jolie! Johnny Depp! The trailer for their movie “The Tourist” is out and, dudes, I dunno, you would think I would be all about this movie because, hello, Johnny Depp, but I am distracted. Distracted by Angelina’s weird accent. Where is she supposed to be from? Distracted by Johnny’s oddly bloated face. And that beard. Ick. Distracted by the fact that I am not distracted by an overwhelming sexual desire for Johnny Depp. Just distracted. Keep reading »

Kate Winslet And Evan Rachel Wood Remake 1945 Flick “Mildred Pierce” For HBO

All right, who is the Frisky reader with HBO who will have me over for the five-night series of “Mildred Pierce”? Kate Winslet and Evan Rachel Wood star as a mother and daughter in a remake of an old black-and-white Hollywood film about spoiled children, indulgent parenting, sex, resentment and redemption. I’ve seen the 1945 original and lemme tell you, it’s juicy stuff, so I can’t wait to see what they do in 2010. Not to mention Kate Winslet in a period piece (lots of red lipstick and finger waves) should give Joan Crawford a run for her money. [Women And Hollywood] Keep reading »

Sofia Coppola’s “Somewhere” Wins Venice Film Festival, Looks Awesome

Every now and then, I find myself thinking about what Bill Murray whispered to Scarlett Johansson in the pinnacle scene of “Lost in Translation.” Or why the Lisbon sisters were so determined to off themselves in “The Virgin Suicides.” This is because director Sofia Coppola makes incredible movies about alienation and what gets people through it—be it Americans living in Japan, sisters in 1970s Detroit, or Marie Antoinette who has to leave her friends and family behind to marry the future King of France. And Sofia’s newest flick, “Somewhere,” sounds like it is very much in the same vein. It stars Stephen Dorff (yumz) as a Hollywood megastar living at the Chateau Marmont who is totally disenchanted with life until he gets custody of his 11-year-old daughter (played by Dakota’s little sister, Elle Fanning). So I guess I’m not shocked that on Saturday, “Somewhere” won the Venice Film Festival’s top prize, the Golden Lion. Keep reading »

Quotable: Jon Hamm Jokes About Sex Scenes With Ben Affleck

“My sex scenes with Ben, which were cut—I think, wisely—were raunchy … [Working with Ben] was an awful experience. He’s a horrible human being. Talent-free, I guess we could probably say. It was pure misery. Two-and-half months of absolute, abject terror.”

Jon Hamm gets sarcastic talking about “The Town” at the Toronto Film Festival. He stars in the flick alongside Ben Affleck, who also directed. Don’t tease us like that, Jon! We’d love it if you and Ben did “Brokeback Mountain: The Sequel.” I dub your partnership Hammfleck. [People] Keep reading »
