Megamind
I’m writing this week’s column on Halloween, so I wish my readers a happy and safe holiday. There are two things I’m looking forward to later tonight: a special Halloween screening of the cult classic “Evil Dead 2” at one of my local theaters and the premiere of the AMC television show “The Walking Dead.” As a zombie aficionado I’m curious to see how they will be able to stretch out the concept into an entire series.

Naomi Watts Uncertain How To Play Marilyn Monroe

October 19th, 2010 10:14am EDT
Naomi Watts
Naomi Watts is daunted by her upcoming role as Marilyn Monroe - admitting she doesn't know how to play the iconic sex symbol.

The actress portrays the Some Like It Hot siren in new biopic Blonde, but confesses she can't figure out how to tackle the role - because no one really knew the real Monroe.

She says, "I don't have a plan yet on how to do it. It's going to be a huge undertaking because everyone obviously has their own idea about who she was."

"It's a high-pressure thing to take on because of how iconic she was. I don't know how I'll go about it."

You Again
Last Thursday I went to see “Easy A” starring Emma Stone, who has come into the mainstream with roles in “Superbad” and “Zombieland.” Stone plays Olive, a teenager that discovers the danger of rumors in high school the hard way. Olive unintentionally starts a rumor that she had sex and pretty soon it spreads to the entire school. She establishes a certain reputation among her peers for it, which at first she relishes. Over time though, it seriously alienates her from her friends, and she is forced to confront her choices.

Probably the most interesting aspect of the movie is Olive’s nar...

November will unleash on moviegoers some of the most highly anticipated movies of the year. Sure to be the biggest opener of the month will be “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” which will ease fans into the end of the “Harry Potter” movie franchise. Director David Yates returns to helm the last two installments of the series which will be much appreciated by die-hard fans of the books and movies. Also exciting, and not surprising, is “Deathly Hallows” will be 3D which may result in the movie being just another flop in the 3D craze. Few movies have successfully employed the 3D t...

Naomi Watts is finding it so difficult to juggle her duties as a mom-of-two with her career she's convinced she's "failing" at both jobs.

The star returned to work just weeks after giving birth to her second child, son Samuel, in December 2008, and shot new drama "Mother and Child."

But Watts, who's also mom to two-year-old Sasha, fears she's coming up short on both aspects of her life.

She tells BlackBook magazine, "Every single day, I second-guess myself as a mother. I chose to be a mom. It's something I've always wanted, but I feel torn between two worlds. I am not reaching the same d...

On Thursday, I watched the reboot to the Freddy Krueger series “A Nightmare on Elm Street.” The film kept my attention however it did not blaze a new trail in the genre or introduce any compelling fresh elements to Krueger’s origin story.

It seemed the real purpose of this remake was to introduce us to the new actor playing Krueger, Jackie Earle Haley. Krueger was exclusively portrayed before by Robert Englund, which made the actor synonymous with the character. Haley is consistently creepy and perverted as Krueger like Englund. Unlike Englund though, his makeup allows him to appear mo...

She tells WENN, "Here I had this growing belly and we needed a few shots but we actually only used one. It was a no-brainer because prosthetics never look convincing enough and the good ones are really expensive and this was a...

Celebrities Who Get Naked On Screen: A Thin Line Between Classy & Trashy

Hollywood royalty used to use body doubles for filming sex scenes in their films; the thought of them baring it all was almost a joke. But as sex and nudity have taken a more artsy approach on screen, celebrities are jumping at the chance to take their careers to a more risqué level...

Yet, baring it all in films is a very touchy subject with actors. This is a topic young Hollywood and wannabe actors can't seem to grasp. If you are an established actor and nudity is done in good taste, it's viewed by most people as classy. But if you're just starting out, you don't want to be known as ...

Naomi Watts gave birth to her second child, Samuel, in December, joining 18-month-old Alexander. Now 18 hour days on a film set are the least of Watts' exhaustion.

"I knew that everyone goes through a monumental amount of sleep depravation, but you can never prepare for that," Watts said. "It's brutal. I had three and a half hours last night. It's not always like that. It's also just because we came from New York and the jet lag and one is waking up the other."

It's amazing she can even do the rounds to promote her latest film, The International since her mind is wiped. "I cannot ...

What is it about Aussies that Americans find so fascinating? Is it the cute accents? The laid-back attitudes? The "party animal" reputations? It could be a mix of all of these traits. It could also be because, although we speak the same language and our cultures have many similarities, many of us know very little about Australia. That strange yet familiar vibe makes those down under denizens appear exciting and mysterious - an irresistible combo!
