The Serial Daters Of 2011

December 15th, 2011 4:00pm EST
Blake Lively
Some folks just can't settle down. Here are the serial daters of 2011: The celebs that hooked up with the most people!

After splitting with Penn Badgely in late 2010, Blake Lively took a tour of Hollywood's hunks. After a summer of romance with Leonardo DiCaprio, she hit it off with Green Lantern co-star Ryan Reynolds.

Scarlett Johansson dwarfs Lively's number of suitors. Her rumored boyfriends included Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Sean Penn, Kieran Culkin, and Bradley Cooper.

Bradley Cooper wasn't waiting around for Scarlett, though. He was linked to Jennifer Lopez, Olivia Wilde, Jennifer An...

Review: 'Beginners' 'Two Jews On Film' Almost Agree On This Indie Gem (Video)

May 31st, 2011 2:15pm EDT
Beginners
By Joan Alperin Schwartz: All I can say is...'Beginners' had me from the moment Ewan McGregor looks deep into the eyes of his newly acquired Jack Russel Terrier and says...'Look it's lonely out here so you and I better learn how to talk to each other'. The camera does a close up on the dog and the caption on the screen reads...I understand 150 words but I don't speak any.

Get the picture. 'Beginners' written and directed by Mike Mills is one of those independent quirky films that you can't help but fall in love with. At least I did.

Oliver (Ewan McGregor) a graphic artist, goes to a p...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'X-Men:First Class,' 'Beginners,' & More

May 31st, 2011 11:00am EDT
X-Men
Last week I had the opportunity to see “The Hangover Part II,” the sequel to the wildly successful 2009 hit comedy. Director Todd Philips does not really change the formula for the film or the format in which he tells the story, but there are still plenty of laughs to be found. Check out my review if you haven’t already.

This week you’ll have the chance to see what Professor X and Magneto used to be like in the prequel “X-Men: First Class,” you could follow along with Ewan McGregor as he deals with his father’s coming out in “Beginners,” you can laugh as the teenager Oliver Tate atte...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice,' 'Inception,' & More

July 12th, 2010 9:42am EDT
Sorcerer
I saw one of this week’s films “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” last Thursday; however as part of my agreement in seeing the advanced screening, I am not allowed to share my opinion on the film until its release on Wednesday. Keep your eyes peeled for a review later this week though.

There are only three films opening during the current week: “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” “Inception,” and “The Concert.” Personally I’m incredibly excited about seeing “Inception” because I’m a huge fan of both Leonardo DiCaprio and director Christopher Nolan.

82nd Oscar Nomination Reaction: The Snubs, Surprises & Who Shouldn't Have Been Nominated

February 2nd, 2010 3:34pm EST
82nd Oscar Surprises, Snubs & Who Shouldn
And there were ten.

It seems kind of strange to say that, right? Ten Best Picture nominees? We knew it was coming for nearly a year, but now it's actually there. In Black and white. Ten nominees. Strange.

After seeing the list, it's easy to see that the Academy might be on to something. Sure, it would have gotten the biggest blockbuster of all time with "Avatar" earning a Best Picture nomination if there were only five nominees, but it would have missed out on other massive hits like "The Blind Side", "Up", and "District 9".

Now, the telecast is going to get a lot more casual...

Inglourious Basterds
Cinematic icon and filmmaker Quentin Tarantino helms one of the most audaciously inventive, eagerly-anticipated films of the year, "Inglourious Basterds", coming to Blu-ray Hi-Def and DVD on December 15, 2009 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

Starring Academy Award nominee Brad Pitt in an audacious, adrenaline-packed, high-octane World War II revenge fantasy, "Inglourious Basterds" has been hailed as one of Tarantino's most stylish and entertaining films to date.

From its deceptively bucolic opening scenes to its incendiary final moments, "Inglourious Basterds" delivers a h...

Japan premiere of Inglourious Basterds
French actress Melanie Laurent, left, director Quentin Tarantino, Brad Pitt, and French actress Julie Dreyfus pose for photographers during the Japan premiere of their latest film "Inglourious Basterds" in Tokyo, Japan, yesterday. See more photos after the jump.

Tarantino recently announced a third installment of his "Kill Bill" series will be released in 2014. The proposed "Kill Bill: Vol. 3" will be set 10 years after the last installment to allow Uma Thurman's character, The Bride, to "have a break" from her bloody revenge mission.

Pitt stars in the upcoming "Moneyball" - a real-li...

Summer Movie Awards Part 2: Best Film, Worst Title & More

Bruno
The summer movie season is finally at its end. Yesterday we listed Part 1 of the first annual "Summer Movie Awards" in categories such as: surprise hit, the bomb nobody noticed, indie hit, and most disappointing. Check out more films that deserve to be recognized for their summer performances:

The Death by Twitter Award

Winner: "Bruno"

This movie made more than 20 percent of its gross in the first night. After that evening, the Twiterrati hit their little squawk box to spread the word that there was far too much spreading of limbs in this bit of borderline pornography. The resul...

The Oscar Season Begins In August With Tarantino's 'Inglourious Basterds'

August 28th, 2009 11:02am EDT
Inglourious Basterds
The year in movies is always split into two different seasons. First, there's the endless malaise of the Winter, Spring and Summer where we suffer with movies intent on doing nothing more than making money. The second season is much more fruitful, it's when movies care about making money and winning awards.

This moment the season changes is often hard to pinpoint. Normally it occurs in late October when every single movie seems to have a minor-key melody scoring its trailer and actors from Britain make their first appearances.

Sometimes, however, awards season comes in with a ban...

'Inglourious Basterds' Could Be Tarantino's Best Film

August 23rd, 2009 9:27am EDT
Inglorious Basterds
There are a few things you need to know before going to Inglorious Basterds (rated R, now in theaters). First, it is an alternate history of the ending of Nazi Germany and World War II, so do not expect it to do anything that you've read about in the history books. Second, it is a Quentin Tarantino film down to every last second: dialogue heavy, tongue-in-cheek, full of black humor, viciously violent, and a stream of loving tributes to particular movies or cinema styles that Tarantino loves. Third, this is not really an action flick, despite what the trailers might tell you. There are actio...
