Ronan Farrow
Ronan Farrow, the son of actress Mia Farrow, took to Twitter to bash the Golden Globes for airing a tribute to his father Woody Allen.

Naomi Campbell cut an interview short with ABC by walking out and knocking over a camera. The model stormed out after a reporter questioned her over an alleged gift she received from former Liberian president Charles Taylor.

Mia Farrow claims that Campbell received a blood diamond - named as such because they are mined in war zones and used to finance insurgencies and warlords in Africa - from the former president while they were visiting Nelson Mandela.

Hit-or-Miss Mastermind Woody Allen Recaptures Genius With Eccentric 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona'

August 15th, 2008 10:02am EDT
Vicky Cristina Barcelona
(HollywoodChicago.com) – While legendary writer and director Woody Allen can’t always be equated with sheer genius these days and is more accurately described as a hit-or-miss proposition, the sorely undermarketed and film-festival touring “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” serves as unquestionable retribution for his recently questionable work.

The film, which stars Hollywood sensations Javier Bardem, Scarlett Johansson and Penélope Cruz, all throughout makes you feel like Allen’s script has something brilliant up its artistic sleeve. While at times you’ll easily predict when sex is on deck, ...

Movie Review: 'The Ex' Is A Flat, Desperate Comedy

May 10th, 2007 3:04pm EDT

The Ex isn't so much a movie with a plot as it is a filmed series of situations in which Zach Braff a) injures himself, b) humiliates himself, or c) both.

Borrowing early and often from Meet the Parents and You, Me & Dupree, this desperate comedy finds Braff starring as bumbling straight man Tom (sorta like his role on Scrubs), who always manages to say and do the most painfully awkward things around his wacky in-laws and co-workers, people with whom he's never in sync.

Most of these moments involve Chip (Jason Bateman), the chipper high school boyfriend of his wife, Sofia (Amand...
