Jennifer Lawrence Silver Linings Playbook
Winning an Oscar does wonders for the value of a film's assets. The wardrobe worn by "Best Actress" winner Jennifer Lawrence in "Silver Linings Playbook" shattered auction estimates and sold for $12,000.

Five costumes went under the hammer by auction bosses at Nate D. Sanders, who expected the costumes to draw bids between $500 and $1,500 each. They were pleasantly surprised when one lot, a full-length wool coat Lawrence wore in the film, took in $4,652 alone.

During the film's ballroom dance sequence Lawrence's character wore white pants, which fetched almost $4,000 at the three-day onli...

Best Director - Who Will Win ?

2/24/2013 5:40pm EST
A snub of Ben Affleck in the Best Directing category shows that all signs seem to point toward Steven Spielberg for his brilliant vision of 1860s America and the passing of the 13th Amendment.

But don't count out David O. Russell, whose Silver Linings Playbook just scooped up all the big awards at the Film Independent Spirit Awards last night.

Also in the running are Michael Haneke for his minimalist approach in Amour, taking long camera shots and filming nearly the entire film about an elderly woman's declining health and her loving husband who cares for her in a two-bedroom Paris apartm...

2/24/2013 5:10pm EST
This year's Oscars promises to be full of drama and surprises as there are only a handful of sure locks to win awards.

The biggest question of all is which film will take home the award for Best Picture, with Ben Affleck's Iran Hostage drama Argo and Steven Spielberg's presidential biopic Lincoln leading the pack.

While Lincoln looked to be a sure bet early on, it wasn't until the Golden Globes that Argo began gaining all of the momentum; scooping up numerous awards, including Producers and Directors Guild Awards.

But that still doesn't mean it'll win Oscar gold. The Producers Guild has ...

Date Movie Talk: 'Silver Linings Playbook'

Those are two fiiineee looking crazy people.
The date movie. We’ve all been here. Be it a night out with your wife or hubby, a first date with someone you met online, or simply something you enjoy doing with your boyfriend or girlfriend, oftentimes seeing the right kind of movie can enhance your romantic endeavors for the evening, and seeing the wrong kind of movie can damn them completely. Some movies are romance neutral. I don’t think anyone seeing “Parker” is going to come out of that movie questioning the very fabric of their lives, for example. But, some are profound. In a series of articles highlighting the good date movies, the...

2012 was a great year for films - studio films as well as Indy titles all scored big.

From the exquisite writing, directing, special effects, I found myself laughing hysterically from a foul mouth, over-sexed pot smoking bear, to a bunch of folks freaking out at the prospect of turning 40.

We had cutting edge performances from Matthew McConaughey ('Killer Joe' & 'The Paper Boy), Nicole Kidman ('The Paper Boy'), John Hawkes and Helen Hunt ('The Sessions') as well as Daniel Day Lewis ('Lincoln') Anthony Hopkins (Hitchcock) and the whole cast of 'Django Unchained'.

As usual, John and I didn...

2012 was a great year for superheroes, James Bond, a former President of the United States and Ben Affleck. What defines a great film? It's different for everyone, but first and foremost it must entertain. Many movies did just that over the past year.

"The Avengers" was the highest grossing film of 2012, earning $623 million in the United States and a staggering $1.5 billion worldwide.

The number-three grossing film of all time (behind James Cameron's "Titanic" and "Avatar"), starred Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Mark Ruffalo as the H...

De Niro went as far as to speak to director David O. Russell about his casting ideas, even though Gloria had never acted before, and thought she would be perfect because the Coopers hail from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the same town as the movie ...

‘Silver Linings Playbook’: Light and Predictable but Still Pleasurable

11/18/2012 11:24am EST
Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper in Silver Linings Playbook
Going into David O. Russell’s “Silver Linings Playbook,” I was emotionally prepared for a romantic dramedy: ready to laugh and perhaps even to get a little misty if the moment called for it. I was happily surprised however, that Russell’s film actually lands in romantic comedy territory. His movie follows romcom conventions pretty closely, but despite being lighthearted and predictable, “Silver Linings Playbook” is still pleasurable.

Like other romantic comedies, the humor in this flick relies heavily on hilarious misunderstandings. The main reason this film stands out in the romcom genre ...

Every so often a film comes along that is original, quirky, poignant and surprising. 'Silver Linings Playbook' written and directed by David O' Russell ('The Fighter') is just such a movie.

The film explores the struggles, eccentricities and obsessions of everyday people. In this case the Solantano family.

Pat Solantano Jr. (Bradley Cooper) has just spent 8 months in a mental hospital for beating up his co-worker and fellow teacher. Actually he practically killed the guy. Now, I'm not condoning violence, but Pat did find the dude having sex with his wife Nikki (Brea Bee) in the shower. ...
