Update: turns out that Mr. Wells did not base his prediction on the trailer, as described below (and than god for that, right?) but a reaction from a “trusted research screening informant.” We alll get loopy on the subject of Oscar potential. ¬†Trust me, I know this to be true. ¬†I am ashamed at the amount of time I’ve spent watching Oscar and watching those who watch, drive and turn…

Well, it isn’t really a first look since it’s been making the rounds on the web. I found it on Oh No They Didn’t, but they found it on Collider, who found it on Eclipse Movie who found it on via¬†SpoilerTV. ON THE ROAD, a film by Walter Salles, adapted from Jack Kerouac‚Äôs legendary novel by Jos√© Rivera. The shooting started on Wednesday, August 4 and will continue until the…

A favorite novel of mine (and I think Sasha’s too) is Jonathan Franzen’s 2001 archaeological excavation of an American family, The Corrections. Since I’d hate to decide what parts of that sprawling saga might get trimmed for an adaptation, it’s hard to visualize the story on the screen unless spread across the canvas of a 10-part HBO miniseries. Deadline today has the exclusive news that Scott Rudin sees new potential…

I’ll go ahead and assemble the names we’ve collected into a poll ballot, just for the curiosity element and sheer time-killing fun of it. (which, obviously, were the only real reasons for me raising the question to begin with. My own idle thumb-twiddling curiosity.) Sasha’s reply to this headline question looks to be the definitive answer, and hers was the hypothesis I was secretly hoping to prove anyway. The verdict…

Try to imagine how cringy The Full Monty or Four Weddings and a Funeral might have turned out if they’d been Hollywood films instead of UK imports. Then try to imagine how Norma Rae might have been less like an earnest Norman Rockwell illustration by avoiding corniness with a spritely sidestep. You can stop imagining because it looks like the Brits are delivering another working-class crowd-pleaser. Schooling us again on…

Read More

MetaCritic typically collects reviews from around 40 critics and Rotten Tomatoes names roughly the same number among its ‘Top Critics.’ The individual lists of critics change from film to film, with a core group of 25 who never seem to miss a movie. 20 other critics slide on and off the edges of the guest list. Among these 4 dozen film critics there might be 10 writers so esteemed that…

Just posted at InContention. Will it be good Jim Brooks or bad Jim Brooks? ¬†I hope it’s good Jim Brooks. Good Jim Brooks for me is Terms of Endearment, The Simpsons, As Good as it Gets and Broadcast News. Broadcast News is probably my favorite, even still (“I am singing and reading BOTH”). Bad Jim Brooks is Spanglish and I’ll Do Anything. 'How Do You Know' How Do You Know…
