George Clooney Talks About His Favorite Films And What He Wants To Be Remembered For

October 6th, 2011 3:00pm EDT
The Ides of March
The Toronto International Film Festival was full of stars, so how could George Clooney compete with the likes of Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Madonna? He showed up twice. Two of Clooney’s films played the festival, and both are going to be opening in theaters soon.

The Ides of March, which Clooney directed and opens Friday, is a political drama about a presidential campaign. The Descendents, which Alexander Payne directed, stars Clooney as a father trying to keep his family together when his wife is critically injured.

contagion
This weekend when “Contagion” opens nationwide, audiences will see director/legend-in-the-making Steven Soderbergh’s first foray into the genre of psychological thriller. Soderbergh, who has been entertaining audiences for over 20 years, has tackled every style of film there is and has refused to become stagnant as a filmmaker.

Few directors are as versatile as Soderbergh and even fewer are so comfortable moving in and out of genres and styles of filmmaking. To celebrate the release of “Contagion,” below is a sampling of the many film genres on which Soderbergh has made his mark.

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...

Jennifer Lopez: The Highs And J. Lows

April 23rd, 2010 9:39am EDT
Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez began her post-babies comeback late last year, with “Louboutins,” a dance-pop ode to shoes that didn’t exactly set the world on its heels - or kick her music career back into high gear for that matter. Luckily, she has “The Back-up Plan,” a romantic-comedy that hits theatres this Friday.

Lopez undoubtedly hopes that returning to the big screen in a genre where she’s been successful in the past will re-establish her as a major movie star and reignite her star power. After all, for the first half of the decade, two Jennifers pretty much dominated celebrity news headlines. Ani...

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

April 17th, 2008 8:00am EDT
Clueless
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)....

The Three Best & Worst Films Starring George Clooney

George Clooney in Syriana
George Clooney is a strange player in the entertainment world. While widely renowned as an A-list movie star with universal sex appeal, Clooney's film career isn't as rife with blockbuster hits as one may think.

He does have the fashionably discredited, and thusly underrated, Ocean's series, but today's Cary Grant has only two films, The Perfect Storm and Batman and Robin, that grossed over $100 million domestically. The majority of his films are what one might call prestige films - vehicles to exhibit his considerable acting and directing talent. This is possibly because his star was...
