Robin Williams Will Bust Out the Feathers For 'Birdcage' Sequel

The Birdcage
Robin Williams has spent the better part of the past decade confusing the hell out of audiences with his movie choices – "RV," anyone? – but it seems as though things may be on the upswing for the funnyman.

The actor may be injecting some fabulous back into his career in the not-too-distant future with a sequel to his 1996 hit "The Birdcage."

Williams tells Movie Hole that he may reprise his role as South Beach drag club owner Armand Goldman if the powers that be can work out a script. "They're trying to figure out which [story] to write for that," says Williams. "We will see what happens...

Movies With Heart: The 100 Best 'Romdramedies' Of The Past 20 Years

April 17th, 2008 8:00am EDT
There's the quintessential romantic comedy, and then there's the romdramedy. Similar to a dramedy (in which there is an equal balance of humor and serious content), a romdramedy combines comedy and drama with that mushy thing we call romance.

This is not a list of the best films over the past 20 years. Rather it is a list that gives preferences to those films that best combine all three elements - romance, comedy and drama.

Films like Magnolia and The Matrix were barred from competition, while films like Down with Love were considered (however, that one didn't make the cut)....

Point/Counterpoint: Should Hollywood Stop Remaking Classic Films?

Over the years many classic movies have been remade. Don't get me wrong, some of those remakes have been really good. But the majority of the movies have been really bad.

These days, special effects are being taken to a whole new level, but that's not always a good thing. One of the main reasons these films are classics is because CGI was in the distant future. People loved the original "Godzilla" because you can see the man in the Godzilla costume crushing a cardboard box, also known as Tokyo.

There are few movies that have scared me, and one of those films was the 1978 movie "Ha...

'Charlie Wilson's War'- Momentous But Momentless

Charlie Wilson
Charlie Wilson was a man who took risks with seemingly no regard to the danger he was placing himself in. He would rather make a joke than admit defeat. Ultimately, when he's resolved to take action, he lowers his head and rams into adversity - crashing down hallways and flying in jet airplanes, unflappable and resolute.

Charlie Wilson's War is no different. Helmed by one of the greatest directors of all time, Academy and Tony award winner Mike Nichols ("The Graduate," "Catch 22," "The Birdcage," "Primary Colors" and Broadways' "Spamalot," "Odd Couple," and "Barefoot in the Park"), the...

Aaron Zigman's Score For "Flicka" Is A Wild Ride

October 6th, 2006 3:22pm EDT
Film composer Aaron Zigman scores 20th Century Fox's remake of the 1943 family western "My Friend Flicka." The modern version, with its title shortened to "Flicka," stars Alison Lohman and country music superstar Tim McGraw as daughter and father. When the father (McGraw) decides that Katie (Lohman) should attend college in place of running the family ranch, she decides to tame a wild mustang in order to sway his opinion. Zigman's score is rousing and propulsive, reminiscent of the dynamic scores of golden-era westerns such as "The Magnificent Seven." Directed by Michael Mayer ("A Home at t...
