What is it? Two old college friends cross paths as adults and beat the ever-loving crap out of each other.
Why see it? Onur Tukel’s latest is also his best thanks in part to the lead performances by Sandra Oh and Anne Heche. They do a good job of manipulating our sympathies and concerns ensuring that our loyalties shift from act to act. Themes of female friendships, class distinctions, and redemption run through alongside a satirical look at modern life, and there’s a terrifically wicked streak throughout. Funny, smart, and brutal are all apt descriptors for this cynical look at our violent selves.

Josef von Sternberg called Anatahan his best film. Borne from more than a decade’s worth of frustration with the studio system, it was, as the last picture he completed, his stamp on his time as a director. Even then, when released in 1953, it was only released in a butchered format, and, as it often goes in such cases, was subsequently abandoned by popular consciousness. But a few times each year, cinephiles (at least »

“Damien Chazelle‘s vibrant ode to musicals past, featuring the unstoppable chemistry between stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, was a shining light for many at the end of a hard year,” we said when we named it one of the best films of 2016. “Exploring the hardships of a creative life, both in paying the bills and fueling the passion, Chazelle pulls from classics (New York, New York comes to mind), while playing with the cynicism of the now. Jazz is dying, film is dying, but, by God, there will be dancing. There will be singing. And there will be wonderfully lensed romantic kisses to composed crescendoes. Maybe we will be all right.”
With the film now arriving on Blu-ray and DVD, we’re pleased to debut an exclusive excerpt from a bonus feature in which Chazelle and company reflect on the chemistry of Gosling and Stone. The director even »

Matt Bomer is no stranger to style, and when it comes to fashion sense, his three sons are following in their dad’s footsteps — without much guidance from their parents.
“They do their own thing, really,” Bomer told People Wednesday at the Mr Porter “Made In California” Launch Party in Hollywood, California. “We provide them with clothing, and they mix it up the way they like it.”
Bomer, 39, and his husband Simon Halls are parents to twins Henry and Kit, 8½, plus Walker, 11. And though the boys have their own signature style, they’re creating their looks from stores where a lot of tweens shop. »

While I remain skeptical about Marvel Studios commitment to their female heroes, they took a small step forward in making Captain Marvel a reality by signing directors to the project. That's right, directors, as in plural. The writer/director duo of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck won the gig. They're not doing the screenplay this time (which is new for them) but still co-directing. They debuted with the searing Half Nelson for which Ryan Gosling earned a well deserved Best Actor nomination. Their subsequent films (Sugar, It's Kind of a Funny Story, and Mississippi Grind) weren't quite as acclaimed but were respectable outings. They've recently been directing performance-centric shows like Looking, Billions and The Affair.
What does this mean for the film? Well it bodes well for the acting (not that Brie Larson needs a lot of help there) since they always do right by the talent but we hope »

It’s going on two years since Universal Pictures last posted a status report on the movie adaptation of Mark Millar and Sean Gordon Murphy’s Chrononauts, but today brings word of what is arguably the project’s most exciting development yet.
Deadline has the scoop, confirming that playwright and screenwriter Philip Gawthorne (Kojak, Cube) has now signed on to adapt the graphic novel for Universal. Chris Morgan of The Fast and the Furious fame will help produce the feature film, which chronicles a “time-traveling adventure that follows two fun-loving, scientific geniuses (Corbin Quinn and Danny Reilly) as they embark on the world’s first time-travel experiment.”
Sean Gordon Murphy and Mark Millar are also on board to produce, which ought to ensure a fairly faithful adaptation. And though Chrononauts is still simmering in the formative stages of development, the latter took to Twitter to share his dream casting: Chris Pratt and Chris Hemsworth. »

Commentary Commentary“There’s no number in this movie that we didn’t try cutting at some point.”
La La Land may not have won Best Picture at the Academy Awards, but it’s still a delightfully mesmerizing experience with one of last year’s best endings. It hits Blu-ray/DVD next week, and along with an 80 minute making-of documentary the disc features a commentary with the film’s award-winning writer/director and composer.

La La Land (2016)
1. Chazelle wanted his Cinemascope opening to replicate the widening aspect ratio he recalled seeing in Frank Tashlin’s 1956 film, The Girl Can’t Help It.
2. The opening scene is modeled in some ways on 1932’s Love Me Tonight which “begins with a cacophony of street noises, Paris »

After months of speculation, Marvel has finally chosen its directors for Captain Marvel, bringing in a pair of indie filmmakers who weren't mentioned as front runners in the past. Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who most recently directed the A24 dramatic comedy Mississippi Grind starring Ryan Reynolds and Ben Mendelsohn, have signed on to take the helm of this superhero adventure, which has Brie Larson set to star as the title character. While this news has yet to be confirmed by Marvel Studios itself, the studio reportedly took its time in finding the right director, while also making sure that the script was in great shape.
Variety reports that Marvel met with multiple contenders for the job before selecting Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. The studio met with the directing pair multiple times and were thoroughly impressed with their approach to the title character, a.k.a. Carol Danvers. Nicole Perlman »
In a complete departure from the shortlist of three directors The Hollywood Reporter floated last summer, Variety reports that Marvel has hired directorial team Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden to direct its Captain Marvel movie. The duo, who launched Ryan Gosling’s career with Half Nelson back in 2006, is an unorthodox choice for a big-budget superhero blockbuster, given that they specialize in quiet character studies like the 2015 Ben Mendelsohn/Ryan Reynolds gambling drama Mississippi Grind. More recently, they’ve been working on TV series like Billions and The Affair, experience Variety says was pivotal to them landing the Captain Marvel gig.
Hiring unlikely candidates is a long-standing Marvel modus operandi, though, and one that’s worked out quite well for the studio so far. Marvel Studios made a big deal of saying that it would hire a female director for the McU’s first female-led solo superhero ...

Has Marvel’s hunt for a “Captain Marvel” director come to an end? According to Variety, yes, thanks to a report that “Half Nelson” and “Mississippi Grind” filmmakers Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck have been tapped to direct the Brie Larson-starring superhero feature.
The outlet reports that “the studio had met with several contenders and sources say the studio not only wanted to make sure that the search was thorough but that the script was in the right shape before tapping who would direct it.” Marvel made it clear early on that it was a priority for the film to be directed by a woman. The film’s script, focused on Air-Force-pilot-turned-superhero Carol Danvers, is currently being written by Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman.
Variety adds, “The studio was looking for a unique point of »

Sylvester Stallone and wife Jennifer's three daughters still get star struck -- despite having a super famous father.
Sophia, 20, Sistine, 18, and Scarlet, 14, are guest editors for the May issue of Harper's Bazaar, and admit that the most famous person in their phones is their own dad -- which is probably why they used to snag digits from his mobile contacts.
"When I was little I used to go through my dad’s phone and take numbers, like Liam Hemsworth," Sophia recalls. "I called him. He never answered," Sistine confesses.
This year, the girls were named Miss Golden Globe at the big awards ceremony, and got a little tongue-tied around all the celebrities. Sistine says her "heart skipped a beat" when Leonardo DiCaprio remembered meeting her through her parents, Scarlet "fainted a little" when Ryan Gosling smiled at her, and »

Growing up with Sylvester Stallone has its perks. Just ask his daughters, Sophia, 20, Sistine, 18, and Scarlet, 14.
They catapulted into the spotlight this past January when they served as joint Miss Golden Globes at the star-studded awards show. And while her other sisters are still focusing on school, Sistine captured the attention of the fashion world when she signed with Img Models, quickly followed by walks in runway shows for Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana. Now all three sisters have joined forces once again appearing in harper by Harper’s Bazaar for the May 2017 issue found inside the monthly fashion magazine.
