10th Anniversary: A SERIOUS MAN

"I have never seen a film that mixes laugh-out-loud comedy so intimately with dead serious philosophical questioning. It packs so much into its short runtime. " - Dr strange

"This movie is one of my favorites - Michael Stuhlbarg the biggest reason, he's so heartbreakingly fantastically good in everything." -Rebecca

Pajiba on the staggering popularity of Adam Sandler movies on Netflix
EW super cute unseen photos from the production of La La Land (it's on DVD very soon)
THR a Richard Gere profile on the new indie phase of his career and why he isn't in the big studio pictures anymore
i09 a tour of Marvel Studios with peeks at all six movies in various stages of production
The Guardian on the making of the wonderful British comedy Wish You Were Here (1987) for its 30th anniversary. God, Emily Lloyd was sensational in that. Remember her? The '87 Oscar Actress lineup was special but I still missed her there.

Tracking Board Bill Condon who did the James Whale biopic Gods and Monsters is in talks to direct Universal's remake of Whale's Bride of Frankenstein. Shouldn't he feel queasy about this as a fan? 
Awards Daily on the TV Drama Series Actress race. Will it be Claire Foy, Keri Russell, or...? 
Variety Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will feature five, yes five post-credit scenes. Are we really still counting these in the running time? It's probably time to acknowledge them for what they are: commercials. 
The Guardian they're still planning a sequel to Labyrinth (1986)? What is the point? (sigh) 
Coming Soon. Is King Kong in the public domain all of a sudden or something. Hot on the heels of Kong Skull Island there's an unrelated TV series in the works on the big ape and his home island
Coming Soon Taraji P Henson is now trying her hand as an action lead. Proud Mary about a hitwoman with a job gone wrong is now filming

Playbill Sutton Foster is a new mom!
Playbill The complete cast recording of Groundhog Day starring Andy Karl (Rocky, Twentieth Century). He's headed for another Tony nod for sure. I attended opening night and he was terrific. I wish I got invited to more opening nights because it was jampacked w/ celebs: Anna Wintour, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Kate Burton, Hope Davis, lots of people I half recognized (as my friend StinkyLulu who I went with would say "30% famous")... and in my row Christian Slater! 
Broadway Blog If you're near St Louis, you should check out The Tennessee Williams Festival May 3rd-7th. It sounds amazing

Well, the article mentions that of those five, three are goof-ball clips like the end of The Avengers, one is "more substantive", aka a teaser for Infinity War, and the other is probably a small portion of Black Panther (like Doctor Strange and the Thor: Ragnarok tease), because that movie enters editing tomorrow and, naturally, wasn't done in time for that press screening.

I saw Groundhog Day in previews and I was SO PLEASANTLY surprised. Such joy and heart and REALLY inventive staging. Karl is a star.

I have a feeling that if Gere could be cast in one of those fatherly roles that seem to only go to Robert DeNiro nowadays, he might finally get that nomination.

Condon sold out when he did Twilight.

Emily Lloyd will forever be a scary poster with wide eyes Chucky yellow hair and pink bubble gum. I saw the Cookie poster in video stores and assumed it was a horror due to my abnormal reaction to poster and the movie's R rating. Actually was able to watch it for the first time last year. Unremarkable except for the inclusion of Joy Behar and Dianne Wiest.

Tr: That he did, and never really looked back, sadly. Even his two "prestige-ish" attempts post Twilight (The Fifth Estate and Mr. Holmes) read more as sell-out choices than they do honest attempts at filmmaking.

Who needs James Bond with Charlize as the Atomic Blonde and Taraji as Proud Mary?

James Whale's " The Bride of Frankenstein" is not juts the pinnacle of classic Universal horror but one the greatest films ever made- and no we don't need a remake.

Thank you for the St. Louis shout out. That does sound amazing. I will report back if any of my St. Louis friends attend.

Love Claire Foy in The Crown but have to pull for Keri Russell. Only problem is that, while the show is peaking in its award chances, the current season is very quiet. Deep and fascinating but very very quiet in comparison to past seasons. So far, she doesn't have a clear Emmy episode.
