Emma Watson in Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring"

Emma Watson in Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring The Bling Ring is a much better film than the snap judgments out of the Cannes film festival seemed to suggest. Here’s my own review in case you missed it at the time and here’s the official Blurbage: In the fame-obsessed world of Los Angeles, a group (read…)

Official Blurbage: “In the fame-obsessed world of Los Angeles, a group of teenagers take us on a thrilling and disturbing crime-spree in the Hollywood hills. Based on true events, the group, who were fixated on the glamorous life, tracked their celebrity targets online, and stole more than 3 million in luxury goods from their homes. (read…)

I’m told this is the trailer to the new movie from Joel & Ethan Coen. I can’t tell for sure because this is the point where I start shutting out all information relating to the movie until I see it. Enjoy!

Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby (pushed from Holidays 2012 to Summer 2013 ostensibly so Luhrmann could finish the 3D) looks like it’ll play well for 14-year-olds who don’t want to have to read the book for literature class.

Coming April 12th.

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised they’re going more for the scary and gross route this time instead of the funny and gross. It makes sense and it’s probably a good movie. Did it work? I don’t know. We’ll find out next April.

Brian De Palma’s adaptation of Steven King’s Carrie is one of the all time greats. That’s not to say that Kimberly Pierce can’t also do a wonderful and significantly different job and I like the casting of Chloe Moretz who shows real potential to transcend her little girl roots. At the same time, I don’t have a lot of faith in the current state of cinema that MGM even WANTS an interesting movie….

Check out the trailer after the jump…

Steven Spielberg directs two-time Academy Award® winner Daniel Day-Lewis in “Lincoln,” a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President’s tumultuous final months in office. In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come.

The original French film, Love Crime, was an enjoyable psychosexual potboiler with Ludivine Sagnier and Kristin Scott Thomas. Based on this brief TIFF glimpse, Brian De Palma has rather gleefully De Palma’d it up a little. Rachel McAdams takes Scott Thomas’ role as a successful but manipulative business executive while Noomi Rapace steps in for (read…)

Well, whaddya know?

The official blurbage: “Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s (read…)

I know it isn’t most people’s favorite Pixar, but I’m an unapologetic fan of Monsters Inc. The idea of a sequel though, I’m not entirely crazy about. There’s a fine line between nostalgia for something you love and an unappealing sense of deja vu. This teaser I’m afraid gives me more of the latter. It’s (read…)

I’m told that this is a new teaser for one of the most eagerly anticipated movies of the year. I can’t confirm or deny it because I’m not going to watch it.

If you’ve seen Lena Dunham’s terrific Girls on HBO or her film Tiny Furniture, you’ll instantly recognize Alex Karpovsky who plays perhaps the least likable of all the characters in both. Based on the trailer for his new film Red Flag which makes its World Premiere tomorrow night at the Los Angeles Film Festival, Karpovsky (read…)
