That spin-off was to be titled How I Met Your Dad, a pilot was shot, CBS watched it, said "pass," and now that...

Woody Allen's 'To Rome With Love' Gets Trailered

Ellen Page and Jesse Eisenberg in To rome with Love
It would be interesting if Woody Allen's To Rome With Love was his capper to a foreign city trilogy. He recently made Vicky Christina Barcelona, and last year's Midnight in Paris, so why not? Rome stars Allen, Alec Baldwin, Penelope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig and Ellen...

Arthur: Movie Review

Published by

Arthur Close Up
Mediocrity here we come! Arthur is nothing if it isn't that. It's not bad enough to really be horrible or offensive, there are enough jokes to make you chuckle all the way through (provided you haven't already seen them in the trailer), and the cast is extremely easy to watch - BUT the fact is, this is a mainstream, easy for everyone to consume, take no risks comedy....

Whit Stillman's Latest Gets Distribution

Published by

Whit Stillman
To know Whit Stillman is to love 90's cinema. In 1990, his Metropolitan announced a dazzling (and Oscar-nominated) wit, and 1994's Barcelona showed a man of certain interests and great talent. But after 1998's Last Days of Disco, Stillman disappeared from cinema - only to pop his head up when his...

New Trailer for Arthur with Russell Brand and Greta Gerwig

Published by

Arthur Close Up
A new trailer for the Arthur remake with Russell Brand has hit the net. The previous one was pretty funny but it was missing one important element -- Greta Gerwig. She's the lady who plays the real love of Arthur's life, yet she didn't get any screentime in the first trailer. She's not exactly plastered all over this version either, but she gets something. Take a...

No Strings Attached: Movie Review

Published by

No Strings Attached - Sharing the Bed
It's been a mighty successful month for Ms. Natalie Portman with her engagement, pregnancy and Golden Globe. There's nothing like destroying a streak of victory with a shitty rom-com! The Oscar-nominee teams up with the painfully one dimensional Ashton Kutcher in Ivan Reitman's, No Strings Attached. The film pollutes theaters nationwide...

Feel Good Film Fest: Art House Movie Review

Published by

art house tvln081910
One goes to the Feel Good Film Festival more for emotional than intellectual stimulation, but there are interesting questions bubbling under the premise of Art House, concerning the nature of art, what makes an artist and how one decides the aesthetic worth of their work. But the film is content to coast through a stock story of slacker students struggling to prove their worth in the...
