COMMENT(s) DU JOUR
TWO OPINIONS ON MAPS TO THE STARS
Nathaniel's Julianne Spazzing & Glenn's Cronenberg Finger Wagging 

"There is a great movie in Maps of the Stars and that is the one Moore stars in, not the one the screenplay insists in bringing to the front." - Mr Goodbar

"If I had to guess why Cronenberg went with a largely "invisible" or even non-style style, I'd say it has to do with his approach to the narrative, which is kind of a bait and switch, setting us up for a hollywood satire and then giving us a final act that plays more like a myth or a fairy tale." -Roark

You Better Link

Clara and soldiers in "WINGS", the first Best Picture winnerThe Film Doctor offers 7 notes on J Edgar (mostly in relation to two time jumping powerful men classics it attemptes to emulate: The Social Network and Citizen Kane... both recently discussed right here.) I particularly like thought #7.
⇚ Rope of Silicon the first Best Picture winner Wings is finally coming to DVD/Blu-Ray. Yay. Loves that movie, I do.
Coming Soon Tim Burton may be doing an adaptation of the children's book Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children after The Addams Family.

Little White Lies interviews Paul Feig on the success of Bridesmaids.
Hollywood Reporter on 7 films that could be looking at SAG Ensemble nominations: Bridesmaids, Midnight in Paris, and The Artist are the more comedic possibilities but will SAG take comedy seriously this year?
Super Punch Calling all artists who read The Film Experience. Super Punch is hosting a James Bond art contest if you're 007 inclined. 
Animation Yes, it's true. They're going to make an action movie set in the world of Legos.  

Go Fug Yourself Lisa Rinna at The Muppets premiere. LOL.
Grantland Mark Harris on the multiple Davids and three Goliaths (Leo, Brad, George) of the Best Actor race.
In Contention the Vanessa Redgrave AMPAS tribute
Pajiba on classics of Lady Porn and the men of The Immortals.

Not since the costuming department of “Mad Men” got ahold of Christina Hendricks has a pair of mammaries been so lovingly showcased. In fact, the accentuating bronzer is liberally applied not only on Henry Cavill’s heroic bosom, but also Luke Evans’ grimly clenched ab muscles and Stephen Dorff’s morally questionable obliques.

"Morally questionable obliques." Hee!

Speaking of morally questionable... I lurve this Puss in Boots piece at Ultra Culture on Puss's "synthetic heterosexuality". It's pretty great.

The trailer for season 4 of RuPaul's Drag Race

 

 

If only their budget on the show was as high as their advertising budget ;) "Go forth and be sickening!" LOL. Quick head count: how many of you watch this show? Am I speaking to deaf ears whenever I mention it?

Ru Paul's Drag Race is one of the most innovative and entertaining reality shows on television. I absolutely cannot wait!

Like it? I screengrab it and try to make LOLDragQueens a thing every season. It's a fantastic send-up and tribute to reality TV.

November 15, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRobert G

I definitely watch Drag Race. It's the best competition reality show out there. Sickening! Or whatever the kids are saying these days.

November 15, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDylan

I'm with Brady et al. I love Drag Race. Now that Make Me a Supermodel is no more, it's the only reality show I really love.

November 15, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterChristine

I have never watched Drag Race-I cannot bring myself to watch reality television-sorry.

I am starting to wonder if Clooney takes Oscar number two. I was thinking he would win the second Osvar for directing, but maybe he'll get three Oscars. As far as being the new Cary Grant, though, he certainly isn't following in his footsteps at the Oscars.

November 15, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJohn T

I watch drag race

November 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJessica

White Squall (1996): Here marks a turning point, when subtlety begins to lose ground. And then, there's the picture of the whole cast shirtless.
Lol.
And defining 300 as tour de phallus is just genius. I had forgotten (or never noticed) Fassbender was in that one.

Regarding the Best Actor race, hasn't Pitt positioned himself in a good place with those "I'm going to retire" statements? I'm not implying that it was his intention (most likely it wasn't), but it was a way to remind voters this is their chance to vote for him.

November 16, 2011 | Unregistered Commenteriggy

I don't watch Drag Race regularly because I don't have a tv, but I catch it here and there when I can. I'm always glad to see you write about it. I unabashedly love Rupaul.

November 16, 2011 | Unregistered Commentertimothy

Drag Race is great, I watch it (but I can't bring myself to watch Drag U)

November 16, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterramification

I think Sharon Stone should be a permanent guest judge on Drag Race!!!!!!

How awesome would that be!??!?!?! :-)

November 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDave

Drag Race is too fierce for words. I'm very much a fan!

November 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterOrion

Will you be doing a yes, no, maybe for that other snow white movie? Trailer is out.

November 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLara

I absolutely LOVE Drag Race and Drag U!! Cannot wait for both to begin again!

November 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDennis

Drag Race!

November 16, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPoppy

current Best Ensemble Cast predictions for SAG:

THE HELP (lock)
MIDNIGHT IN PARIS (lock)
THE DESCENDANTS
BRIDESMAIDS
CARNAGE

highly plausible: THE ARTIST, MONEYBALL, IDES OF MARCH and maybe even BEGINNERS, hmm
