Happy 50th Birthday: George Clooney Is a True Star & Class Act At 50

May 6th, 2011 8:30am EDT
George Clooney
“It's not about an opening weekend,” George Clooney once mused. “It's about a career, building a set of films you're proud of. Period.” 50 years into his life, mission accomplished. ...And a whole lot more besides.

Hollywood’s often accused of being superficial, debauched, stupid. Ironically, the king of the town is none of these things. George Clooney is a welcome rarity. In so many ways he’s above Hollywood - the tabloid scandals, the Botox, the surface nothingness. For all Clooney’s partying, good looks and joking around, there’s no hiding the fact he’s a proper grown up. The man has de...

Where the Wild Things Are - Buy it

Spike Jonze's masterpiece feels like a Jonze movie (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation) in that it blurs the line between reality and fiction. The beasts - created by Jim Henson's Creature Shop - have to be seen to be believed. Max Records stars as the rebellious young Max, backed by a phenomenal supporting cast including the voice talents of James Gandolfini and Catherine O'Hara. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Karen O supplies one of the best soundtracks of the year, freshly snubbed...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - '2012,' 'Pirate Radio' & More

2012
At some point this week I hope to catch the wacky comedy "The Men Who Stare at Goats." While I have read some bad reviews of the film, I believe my tendency to disagree with the mainstream, could be a wild card for my own appraisal of the movie.

I'm having difficulty believing the collection of George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges could contribute to a horrific film considering I how much appreciate their abilities on screen.

Roland Emmerich destroys the world yet another time this week with his apocalyptic tale "2012." The quirky animation of Wes Anders...

Stephen Root Talks 'The Men Who Stare At Goats,' George Clooney & '24'

Stephen Root
The new George Clooney led comedy, "The Men Who Stare At Goats", opens today and it is filled to the brim with a who's who spectacular cast that will make you find yourself scratching your head and saying, 'I cannot believe they're all in this!"

"The Men Who Stare At Goats" has roots in the Cold War; where the United States military tried using psychic abilities to destroy other people. Yes, attempts at learning how to stare people to death actually happened in the most serious of matters. Needless to say, it's funny through and through.

We were lucky enough to speak with Stephen Ro...

Brad Pitt goatee
Perhaps Brad Pitt is supporting his pal George Clooney, who stars in the upcoming film "The Men Who Stare at Goats." Pitt's beaded goatee is certainly making a statement. The question is: is that a good statement? See more photos after the jump.

Pitt showed off his facial hair at Narita International Airport in Narita near Tokyo, Japan, yesterday. He was there to attend the Japan premiere of his latest film "Inglourious Basterds" in Tokyo.

A new book called "Brangelina Exposed" will hit bookstores on December 1. It chronicles Pitt & Angelina Jolie's courtship, suggesting the stars ar...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'A Christmas Carol,' 'The Box' & More

Sadly Boondock Saints II was an utter disappointment. While it had occasional bright moments, the film was marred by a number of problems.

Largely referential to the first film, it felt at many moments as if should be parodying itself, but it sadly wasn't. The overarching story tried to be overly complex in the web of manipulation it sought to weave.

Special Agent Eunice Bloom (Julie Benz) was a terrible replacement for Agent Smecker (Willem Dafoe), embodying every annoying Southern stereotype.

My biggest criticism of the film was that it was just too wacky; it had too many o...

2009 Fall Movie Previews
With summer coming to an end, there's one major thing to consider: what's going to be entertaining for the next three months? We assume you're thinking the same thing (great minds being alike and all), so here's the rundown of what Hollywood has coming:

Gamer (09/04/09)

Director: Mark Neveldine, Brian Taylor

Starring: Gerard Butler, Michael C. Hall

Gamer will be one of the coolest movies of the season because it actually manages to bring a fairly new concept to the action genre. In the near future, with mind control technology pretty much commonplace, billionaire Ken Castle (Michael...

'The Men Who Stare At Goats' Trailer Released, Looks Bizarrely Awesome

The Men Who Stare at Goats trailer came out recently, and I've got to say this should certainly be on the radar for anyone that would enjoy a bizarre (albeit true!) romp with Ewan McGregor, George Clooney, Kevin Spacey, and Jeff Bridges. Trailer after the break!

Best Week Ever clued me in on the existence when they first listed it on their 15 Movies To Be Excited About in 2009 and while they may be a bit worried about the lack of goats in the trailer, consider this writer sold.

The Men Who Stare at Goats follows the Jon Ronson book about an investigative reporter who stumbles upon a m...
