Quentin Tarantino Lists His Favorite Movies of 2013, Including 'Gravity'...

Published by

Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Taratino's passion for movies is one of his most famous qualities. The former video store clerk turned two time Oscar winner (for Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained) is often accused of stealing from movies high and low. And he has, but it's his ability to blend tastes that make him a master. But for many it's easy to forgive his...

'Fading Gigolo' Trailer: Woody Allen is Pimping for John Turturro

Published by

Fading Gigolo
Though he may be one of the greatest working directors and (at one time) one of the funniest men alive, Woody Allen has pulled back from acting. He used to front almost all of his movies and occasionally show up in other people's films, but of late he hasn't been acting much -- even for himself. He only gave himself a supporting part in 2012's To Rome with Love, and...

There's been so many periods to Woody Allen's career, that it's hard to tell what phase he's in now, but he seems to be in a hot stretch. Blue Jasmine is his latest, and though (like so much of his recent work) it's familiar, it's also a strong sketch of a woman who's been destroyed by modern finances and  is trying to put her life back together.

Blue Jasmine
It's hard to get a read on Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine, as it looks like it could one of his more serious movies, though there are moments in the trailer that suggest there are some jokes to be found here and there (though they may not be that funny). But as great as a cast as he's assembled, as evinced above, there's something kind of crazy and awesome about Andrew...

THE HANGOVER PART III
The biggest problem with a sequel to a successful comedy is that it's hard not to either disappoint, or basically remake the first film. Such is why The Hangover sequels have been so disappointing. Often, the best solution is to get the gang back together, but do something completely different. Here's out top ten list of films that brought back a lot of the same...

News Roundup: 'Jurassic Park 4' Gets 2014 Release Date, New 'Community'...

Jurassic Park – TOP
Today, Universal announced that it plans to release Jurassic Park 4 next year. They don't even have a director yet, but they've got an official distribution date. They must be pretty confident in their script then (and they should be since it's by the same duo that brought you Rise of the Planet of the Apes). Also, for those of you who've missed Community as much as...

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...

The process of Oscar predictions has changed completely over the last twenty years. Where there may have been favorites and hopes before that came with no sense of what could actually happen on Oscar night, blogging has turned the award ceremony into a stats game, where there are way fewer surprises than ever before. But, if you pay attention to the guilds, you have a great guide as to who is...

Midnight in Paris: Movie Review

Woody Allen's highly mysterious (and rightfully so) film Midnight in Paris has made its way back from Cannes and will be appearing in theaters in America this weekend. For me, this is one of my favorite Woody Allen films in a long time. It's not necessarily what you would expect from Allen, though it does follow certain patterns we've come to know from him and one can...

When he’s not busy declaring that he’s retiring, that he’s quitting 30 Rock, and that 30 Rock itself is going off the air before not retiring, not quitting 30 Rock, and 30 Rock staying on the air, Alec Baldwin still takes time off from his busy schedule to act here and there.  His newest project?  Woody Allen’s new film.

Owen Wilson To Star in Woody Allen's Next Film
Owen Wilson will be the star of Woody Allen's next film. France's First Lady (and former model), Carla Bruni-Sarkozy has mentioned that Allen persuaded her to take a role in the film, but because the writer/director wants to keep his upcoming project under the radar (it's not even on IMDB yet), her role in the film is not confirmed.
