Not sure what to make of the fact that this poster for the Poltergeist remake is more unsettling than almost everything in the trailer. Have they just re-shot the very same screenplay from 1982, complete with identical dialogue and line readings? (Am I the last one to find out about this or is it not […]

And in other news, California is running out of water. Yeah but let’s play the game shall we? Were they worried about their opening box office numbers or was the Star Wars team looking for maximum fluffer action? Either way, I don’t think anyone is going to complain about this (except for old grouches like […]

Nobody can touch Ari Folman’s approach to animation – he, like Miyazaki, is rewriting the rules. If you’ve not yet seen The Congress give it a whirl. It is unlike anything I’ve ever seen – imaginative, dark, beautiful. I expect his film on Anne Frank will walk that same odd line. Hard to package and […]

There are heroes in Hollywood who take a hit for speaking out. There aren’t many of them. There aren’t enough of them but those who do are helping others to feel more comfortable.

When Angelina Jolie won for Best Villain at the Kids Choice awards her daughters threw their arms around her neck, they were so proud. Then Jolie delivered a great speech, probably the best from the entire year. “I want to say that when I was little, I was told that I was different and I […]

The headlines lately have ranged from shock to surprise to hope to despair about the films directed by women, films about women, and films aimed at women topping the box office. As we speak, Divergent, Cinderella and Fifty Shades of Grey will clock in as the year’s biggest hits, to say nothing of Home, which […]

The only upside to having five nominees for Best Picture that I can think of is that you have the chance for a potential surprise winner. A last minute surge, for instance, would be better illustrated with the plurality system of voting than the preferential. But here’s the thing. Both the DGA and the SAG […]

The Academy will likely soon announce that they’ve decided to go back to five nominees. According to Hollywood-Elsewhere, the Board of Governors is meeting tonight to discuss their future plans.  My bet is that they will do what they’ve wanted to do all along: move back to five nominees.  There are plenty of people who […]

After the brutal let down of this year’s Oscar race, which mostly amounted to yet another year of dashed hopes and diminished expectations, it’s time to remember Rule #1 of How to Win Best Picture: never let your film become the frontrunner until after the Golden Globes. It’s a harsh and painful rule. Publicists measure […]

Ashley Judd has been standing up for women for a while now but recently Judd took on the harassers (otherwise known as puny tyrants cloaked in anonymity because they have no other option, really – too cowardly to come after women in real life but full of so much hate they can’t contain it) in […]
