Taylor Swift Talks About The Guys & The Lies In The New People

October 21st, 2010 9:01pm EDT
Taylor Swift
As Taylor Swift releases another deeply personal album, the 20-year-old country star opens up in this week's issue of PEOPLE about life in the spotlight, dating drama, and using her songs to get the last word. All of Swift's albums have famously been autobiographical, and her latest, Speak Now, is filled with emotionally charged songs she wrote about the past two years of her life - a period that included failed relationships with Joe Jonas and Taylor Lautner (and, apparently, some drama with John Mayer), a smattering of critical backlash after her Grammy wins and that infamous incident at...

October 21st, 2010 4:30pm EDT
hammer
With all the excitement surrounding the potential announcement of Darren Aronofsky directing the next “Wolverine” movie, fanboys and bloggers have lost sight of the fact that Zack Snyder’s “Superman” reboot still doesn’t have an actor to step into the legendary blue tights. Snyder has already stated that he plans on focusing on the early years of Superman/Clark Kent and does not want to have any connection to the other “Superman” movies (sorry, Brandon Routh).

Snyder, being a very brave and risk-taking filmmaker, is likely to cast someone audiences would never expect, but the actor who wou...

Review: 'Two Jews On Film' Almost Agree On 'The Social Network' (Video)

October 1st, 2010 9:19am EDT
The Social Network
"The Social Network" the highly anticipated film about Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Face Book, delivers on every level. The film is directed by David Fincher, written by Aaron Sorkin and these guys nailed it. Jesse Eisenberg gives an Oscar worthy performance as Zuckerberg, bringing out his deep insecurities and antisocial behavior without making him pathetic. The rest of the cast which includes Justin Timberlake (in one of his best performances) Andrew Garfield, Rooney Mara and Armie Hammer are equally amazing. Greed, ego, money, fame, overnight success, friendship, betrayal and how one c...

'The Social Network' Lets You Decide For Yourself

October 1st, 2010 7:30am EDT
Social Network
Unreliable narrators in films are fascinating because they leave you wondering whether anything that you are seeing is real. The reason why audiences are captivated with yarns strung by characters like this, is that they allow the viewer to decide on his or her own where the truth exists in the story.

“The Social Network,” directed by David Fincher and written by Aaron Sorkin, uses a similar device. Except instead of one untrustworthy character, we are subject to three unreliable perspectives. Each one has their own idea about how the social networking website Facebook was founded. Wh...

Q&A: Armie Hammer, Jesse Eisenberg, And Aaron Sorkin Talk 'Social Network'

September 30th, 2010 12:45pm EDT
Social Network
“The Social Network” is a gripping drama directed by David Fincher (“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “Fight Club”), which tells the events behind the creation and proliferation of the social networking website Facebook.

Taking an objective stance, it shares the accounts of three separate parties that can’t seem to agree on a single truth. There is Mark Zuckerberg the founder of Facbeook, Eduardo Saverin, Zuckerberg’s best friend and co-founder of Facebook, and the Winkelvoss twins, who claim Zuckerberg stole their idea to create his website. Through this method of storytelling, ...
