TMZ life imitating art - Shawarma sales skyrocketing in LA after The Avengers opening.
Coming Soon has a new photo from the set of Les Misérables. I'm choosing to interpret this set as an homage to Moulin Rouge!'s greatness
Acidemic would like you to know that 1933, not 1939 was the greatest year at the movies.
Playlist Maybe Edgar Wright is going to make that Ant-Man movie after all.

Antagony & Ecstacy looks back at Ang Lee's Hulk (2003) in the wake of the new green giant fever sweeping the nation. Really interesting piece.
In Contention Gene Kelly centennial tribute hosted by the Academy next week in LA. Someone go and tell me all about it. We'll celebrate his centennial here in August (the actual month of his birth)
Movie|Line Jessica Chastain finally passes on a movie. Hee!
SuperPunch has photos of Wal-Mart's The Avengers set. I include this only because its rabidly sexist. I believe when the camera spun around the heroes in that highly publicized shot it was The Black Widow and not Loki who was part of the heroic team. (sigh)

"This is the best thing that Kate Beckinsale has ever done."

So you haven't seen Nothing But the Truth?

May 8, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDean

Completely agree about Kate Beckinsale and I did see 'Nothing But the Truth'. I've NEVER understood the appeal of her...always have found her somewhat stale and unoriginal. This is the first thing I've ever seen her do that has any kind of charisma or personality or spark. AND for a good cause! Kudos, Kate. You might have just sold an extra ticket to 'Total Recall'!

"Last Days of Disco" surely, but that video was indeed very excellent.

May 8, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterGlenn

Anyone who found that video more than mildly amusing needs to get out of the house.

"Open up your legs and let the government in" ... and then that sound of a picture of Mitt Romney going into your vagina ... Classic.

... just watched parts of The Aviator. Her Ava Gardner is pretty underrated.

i always thought Kate Beckinsale was more interested by her look than her acting in her US movies

Gene Kelly. Sigh. How great to read that you will do a celebration in August!

May 9, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterIvonne

As much as I enjoyed Gene Kelly as a showman, I can't get over all the stories I've heard about him being an insufferable dick to everyone on "Singing in the Rain"

It's the same reason I can't enjoy anything from Jennifer Lopez and Katherine Heigl.

I've not heard that Gene Kelly was a "dick" to his castmates, but I'd love to know details. I'm quite certain that he was a total perfectionist and probably worked people until their feet bled. Oh well, great art demands great dedication. And if he's a superperfectionist then I'd really like to know what happened with him and Barbra on Hello Dolly.

And if Gene's such a dick, then I'm even more impressed with his devotion to Judy Garland all throughout his career.

PS I've always thought Gene Kelly was underrated as an actor and WAY underrated as a male physical specimen. ;-)
