Article: “The Artist,” reviewed

In the classic film “Singin’ in the Rain,” directors Stanley Donen and Gene Kelly examined Hollywood’s transition from silent to sound cinema from the perspective of the winners; actors like Kelly’s Don Lockwood, who successfully survived the advent of the talkies.

Casting is coming together very quickly for the Coen brothers’ latest big screen drama, “Inside Llewyn Davis.” The flick recently reunite “Drive” costars Oscar Isaac and Carey Mulligan for two of the lead roles, and now two more actors are getting closer to the project.

“Red State,” reviewed

Article: “Red State,” reviewed

For months now, Kevin Smith has seemed like an angry guy: angry at critics who didn’t care for his last movie; angry at distributors for their wasteful release strategies; (rightfully) angry at Southwest Airlines for unfairly kicking him off a plane. So even though it doesn’t look like something by the writer/director of “Clerks” and…

Article: Yabba Dabba Doo: Seth MacFarlane to Reboot the Flintstones

“Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane has done well with funny fat family men in the past, but when Fox confirmed the news that he will be re-booting “The Flintstones” some eyebrows were raised.

They top it all off with a horrific dramatic twist that…

John Goodman sings.

Article: John Goodman sings.

Zealous “Roseanne”-loving friends recently pointed out to me that there’s actually an episode of the show in which John Goodman sings. They were right, and it was delightful. It made me wonder: Had Goodman — a fairly intense actor whose goofy charm belies serious skill — sung on other occasions? And the answer was… yes!…

Meryl Streep, luckless thespian

Article: Meryl Streep, luckless thespian

Sometimes The Onion‘s stories and editorials are pointed satire and sometimes they’re just goofy conceits and absurdities. The much-discussed fake Meryl Streep editorial is something else. In it, “Streep” bemusedly points out that despite her reputation as one of America’s best actresses, she’s never owned a flat-out masterpiece. If you rewrote it not in Streep’s…

“Speed Racer”

Article: “Speed Racer”

Nothing in “Speed Racer” is real: not the cars, not the buildings, not the physics, not the stakes, and certainly not the danger. If the Wachowski brothers, creators of “The Matrix” trilogy, were trying to make a movie that looked like a video game, they’ve accomplished their mission — more than once, “Speed Racer” reminded…
