A billboard featuring Julianne Moore posing naked for a fashion campaign has been banned by officials in Venice, Italy after it was deemed "inappropriate".

'The Kids Are All Right' – A Movie to Stand Up To Summer Blockbusters

July 12th, 2010 11:17am EDT
Kids
Fortunately for some (and unfortunately for others) summertime is synonymous with huge blockbusters at the theater. Two hours filled with action, romance and millions of dollars spent in special effects and stunt work certainly make going to the movies a bit harder to pass up.

However, there are other non-blockbuster movies that deserve a little love this summer. One such movie is ‘The Kids Are All Right’ directed by Lisa Cholodenko and starring Annette Bening, Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo.

Despicable Me
Last week I was supposed to see “The Last Airbender,” however I was not able to make the screening as I originally planned. I’m starting to think that I was rather fortunate though given all of the negative things that I hear about M. Night Shyamalan’s latest outing. A fellow critic called “The Last Airbender” Shyamalan’s worst film so far.

Coming to theaters this week are the animated film “Despicable Me,” the reboot “Predators,” the dramedy “The Kids Are All Right,” the second movie about Stieg Larsson’s computer hacker Lisbeth “The Girl Who Played With Fire,” the horror charged “...

On Thursday night I finally went to see “Crazy Heart” since it was still playing at one of my local theaters. While it’s not always the happiest film, it is grounded and real, like you’re actually following the life of a country musician addicted to the rock star lifestyle, despite being past his prime.

Jeff Bridges gives a deep and nuanced performance as the lead character Bad Blake, convincingly portrays a washed up country singer riding on fumes. Blake’s selfish behavior and penchant for the bottle alienate him from other characters in the film, but Bridges’ kind face and sense of hum...

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...
