A visit to Ken’s crib

Pixar's latest nifty promo for Toy Story 3 invites us inside Ken's groovy new dream house. Possibly the world's first metrosexual (if not fully metroflexible), Ken is secure enough in his masculinity to live in a house with a lavender…

I Knew It Was You: Rediscovering John Cazale

Much thanks to brandz for reminding us that HBO will broadcast the John Cazale bio-doc I Knew It Was You, Tuesday June 1 at 8pm. Cazale appeared in only 5 films before his death at the age of 42, but every one of them was nominated for…

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Trailer 2

The second trailer for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is one of those for which any synopsis would be superfluous. I'm happy to see the movie captures the attitude of the comic series better than I thought possible and Edgar Wright looks…

Guillermo Del Toro Departs The Hobbit

The One Ring reports that Guillermo Del Toro has quit The Hobbit due to continual delays. ‚ÄúIn light of ongoing delays in the setting of a start date for filming ‚ÄúThe Hobbit,‚Äù I am faced with the hardest decision of my life‚Äù,…

Charles Ferguson’s Inside Job

This weekend the San Francisco Chronicle caught up with a documentary Sasha first wrote about from Cannes. "Inside Job" couldn't be more prescient. Started just 19 months ago, the film is a searing examination of the financial…

Jennifer Lawrence all thawed out

Our friend Craig Kennedy at Living in Cinema tips us to this steamy photo shoot at Esquire -- Jennifer Lawrence, glowingly unfrozen from her Sundance sensation Winter's Bone. I'd like to say this pin-up post has Memorial Day weekend…

Tom Cruise is back as Les Grossman

The best thing about Tropic Thunder was watching Tom Cruise get in touch with his inner slimebag, producer Les Grossman. The best thing about the MTV movie awards are the intro spoofs and the promos. These pinnacles of parody come…

Another Tilda Tidbit

DHD has just announced that (something tells me someone very close to this project has a mainline to Nikki Finke) three more players for Tilda. Patrick Goldstein's doppleganger has been cast. And there are two others. Heck, you gotta…

Money and Sex and the City

Deadline: Sources say the Warner Bros sequel made a very strong $17.5 million on its rare Thursday opener (including $3M midnight showings in about 2,000 venues). That compares very favorably to the original's $26.7M opening Friday as well…

The Calm Before Tree of Life

Paul Maher over at Pop Matters writes up a rather intense look back at Terrence Malick, where he's been, what he's been doing, and then gathers up more bits and pieces culled from various sources about the mysterious film.¬† A quote…

A Word for Sex and the City

I think that the hatred directed towards this film is a whole lot of hypocrisy run amok. ¬†No, it's not "giving the women what they want," it's allowing female characters to wade in the same thick soup of shit male characters do. And…

Jonah Hex

Slim pickings for awards prospects when Jonah Hex is the best antidote for Sex and the City 2. But those are the cards we're dealt today.
