9 Sexy Movie Aliens We'd Hook Up With

February 18th, 2011 10:21am EST
i_am_number_four_019-220
Cinematic aliens, for the most part, like to sow terror once they arrive in our midst -- think of the acid-blooded "Aliens," the people-mulching tripods of "War of the Worlds," the uber-hunter in "Predator," and "Gerard Depardieu."

Aliens that do come in peace are usually too otherworldly to be compatible for romance -- no one wants to date "ET." But every now and then, a humanoid alien lands, looking hotter than the two suns over Tatooine, and we can't blame anyone for wanting to visit the dark side of the moon with them.

Starting with Alex Pettyfer's gorgeous extra-terrestrial in "I Am ...

Inside The Interview Room At The Oscar Nominees Luncheon

February 8th, 2011 11:00am EST
Jeff Bridges
Yesterday, I had the opportunity to sit with approximately fifty other journalists to interview the 83rd Annual Academy Award nominees at the annual Nominees Luncheon at the Beverly Hilton. It is a terrific opportunity for all of the honorees to celebrate their accomplishments in film for 2010 without the pressures of the red carpet, a global audience, and the fact that only one person will go home with that coveted Oscar statuette. The luncheon is a very private and supportive event where nominees individually receive a certificate honoring their nomination. The interview room is pretty...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'The Green Hornet,' 'The Dilemma' & More

January 10th, 2011 9:13am EST
The Green Hornet
In preparation for the rapidly approaching Academy Awards in February, I’m trying to see all of the films that I missed in 2010, which are receiving Oscar buzz. Last week I saw the Coen brothers’ western “True Grit,” starring Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, and Hailee Steinfeld. Normally the Coens can be hit or miss with me, but their latest movie is right on target.

The story follows a 14-year-old girl named Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld), whose father has been murdered by an outlaw named Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin). Mattie believes the authorities will do little to capture and punish of Tom Ch...

True Grit
The Coen Brothers' "True Grit" has taken over at the top of the box office after a strong third weekend on release.

The film, starring Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon, fell behind chart-topper "Little Fockers" over Christmas, but it has replaced the comedy in the new box office estimates with a $15 million take.

"Little Fockers" slips to second with $13.8 million.

Nicolas Cage's supernatural thriller "Season of the Witch" debuts at three with $10.7 million, while Gwyneth Paltrow's country-music drama "Country Strong" enters the box office chart at six with a disappointing $7.3 million take.

Review: 'True Grit' 'Two Jews On Film' Go In Different Directions With Coen Bros Epic (Video)

December 21st, 2010 1:10pm EST
TrueGrit-083110-0001.jpg
'True Grit' written and directed by the Coen Bros. stars the brilliant Jeff Bridges as Rooster Cogburn, a one eyed, tough, mean, hard drinking U.S. Marshal who thinks nothing about shooting first and asking questions later. He gets hired by Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld), a no nonsense, prim, 14 year old from Arkansas to track down the man who murdered her father...Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin) and bring him to justice. She's looking for someone that has 'true grit' and thinks Cogburn just might be that person. Against Cogburn's wishes, Mattie goes with him on the trek into the Indian Nations...

If you do not celebrate Christmas though, and you'll be looking for something to do on December 25th, fear not, because there are plenty of movies coming out this week for you to see.

Tron Legacy True Grit
Jeff Bridges has two major movies coming out in the last weeks of the year. In Tron: Legacy he returns to the world of the computer grid from the landmark 1982 sci-fi film. In True Grit, he plays a grizzled western gunslinger based on the same book that inspired John Wayne’s Oscar winning role.

Tron: Legacy is out this weekend, updated with the 28 years of visual effects technology that evolved since Bridges’ last go round as Kevin Flynn. They even created a second character with a young Bridges face. Clu is the villain, created by Flynn in the ‘80s to run the grid, but now out of control ...

Review: 'Tron: Legacy' Game On!

TronLegacy-111510-0006.jpg
In the 28 years it took for “Tron: Legacy” to reach your local Theater or IMAX screen, Communism fell, Al Gore invented the Internet and discovered global warming, and the idea of a movie based around video games became less of a “WTF”. The original “Tron”, for me, was always elusive. Every now and then I'd catch a half hour here, twenty minutes there, always on late night TV, but never had I seen the entire film.

This did not stop me from engorging myself on the Sequel. This movie is the visuals, and they deliver. They deliver in so many ways it's impossible to describe. For all the award...

Radical Retro Movie Review: 'Tron'

December 15th, 2010 10:30am EST
Tron 1
When Disney’s “Tron” zoomed in theaters during the summer of 1982, audiences were whisked away on an unprecedented journey into the digital space of video games and computers. Its unique storytelling experience rests mainly on its groundbreaking special effects, which mix live action and computer animation. With a sequel “Tron: Legacy” arriving in theaters this week nearly 30 years later, it feels appropriate to examine the impact of the original on popular culture.

It was the writer and director Steven Lisberger’s exposure to the videogame Pong that got him fascinated with concept o...

Golden Globe
As reported earlier, the Golden Globe nomination list is out. Among films, ‘The King’s Speech’ leads with seven nods, closely followed by ‘The Social Network’ and ‘The Fighter’ with six apiece. ‘Inception’ and ‘Black Swan’ made strong showings as well among dramas. On the comedy side, ‘The Kids Are All Right’ – which needed a pre-Oscar boost to stay a contender – landed nominations for Annette Bening and Julianne Moore (although, strangely, not Mark Ruffalo) and for Best Comedy – where it’s a surefire winner, unless you can see some brainless foreign journalist voting for ‘RED,’ ‘Alice i...

December 13th, 2010 9:29am EST
Tron Legacy
Last Thursday I saw “I Love You Philip Morris” starring Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor. This film, which is written and directed by Glenn Ficarra and Jon Requa, the team behind “Bad Santa,” advertises itself as a funny movie; however it leans more dramatic than expected. Most of the hilarious lines are spoiled by the trailer, so when you get a chance to see the whole product, you’ll find yourself a bit let down.

Both Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor are incredibly convincing as a gay couple from the manner of their speaking down to the body language that they use. Their story is one that pull...

Meet 'True Grit' Star-In-The-Making Hailee Steinfeld

December 12th, 2010 3:00pm EST
Hailee Steinfeld
Up-and-comer Hailee Steinfeld had very little acting experience before landing a role in the much-anticipated film "True Grit" opposite Jeff Bridges and Josh Brolin.

The Coen brothers reportedly met with nearly 15,000 girls before picking Hailee to play Mattie Ross.

In the film, 14-year-old Mattie joins an aging U.S. marshal (Bridges) and another lawman (Matt Damon) in tracking her father's killer into hostile Indian territory, an adaptation of Charles Portis' original novel.

Sticking more closely to the source material than the 1969 feature adaptation starring Western icon John Wayne, t...

Jeff Bridges turned his back on drugs for good after swapping mind-altering narcotics for meditation.

The actor has been open about his dalliances with cocaine and hallucinogenic LSD in his youth in the 1960s.

He famously quit smoking pot for his starring role in 1998's The Big Lebowski, but later admitted he struggled to keep up his clean-living when the film wrapped.

However, the Oscar winner insists his wild days are behind him now, and he prefers to get his highs from spirituality.

Olivia Wilde wore an assymetrical dress for the U.K. premiere of "Tron: Legacy" in London yesterday. We're not crazy about the dress. What do you think?

The actress recently talked about her "Tron Legacy" character Quorra's revealing skintight suit.

She explained, "I saw the boobs on the suit and I said, 'Oh, hell no. I'm doing kicks and backflips in this thing?' We modeled the character on Joan of Arc but with the hair of Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs."

Jeff Bridges hopes the new visual effects used to take 30 years off him in the new Tron sequel will allow him to continue making movies - but never set foot on a film shoot again.

The 60-year-old veteran actor stars as video game hacker Kevin Flynn in Tron Legacy, reprising a character he played in the original Tron in 1982.

Experts were able to create a digital version of Bridges in his 30s by recording his facial movements and superimposing them onto the body of a younger man - and the Oscar winner has hailed the advancement as a "new era of film-making."
