The difference between movie stars and actors

Article: The difference between movie stars and actors

Is there a difference between “movie stars” and actors? Both of them act, obviously, but one of them does it as an art form and the other does it – how does one say this? — for the adulation and the box office. There has been endless speculation about psychological motivations. Why would someone need…

Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” adds RZA and Anthony LaPaglia

Article: Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” adds RZA and Anthony LaPaglia

It’s kind of a foregone conclusion that “Django Unchained” is going to be our favorite movie of 2012. Not only are we unapologetic, dyed-in-the-wool, completely-committed, never-been-done-wrong Quentin Tarantino fans, but the film, about a former slave out for revenge in the deep south, has an absolutely killer cast. And that cast just got even killer-er,…

The “J. Edgar” trailer features Leonardo DiCaprio and lots of old man makeup

Article: The “J. Edgar” trailer features Leonardo DiCaprio and lots of old man makeup

This trailer surprised me. I knew Clint Eastwood‘s new movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio was about the life of J. Edgar Hoover, the first director of the FBI. But I sort of expected a Martin Scorsese’s “The Aviator” approach — the great old man as an inexperienced young man, viewing his later achievements and follies through…

Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby” begins production in Sydney

Article: Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby” begins production in Sydney

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel “The Great Gatsby” has given generations of high school students a way to show classmates, teachers, possible romantic conquests and even random passersby just how smart, insightful and sensitive they really are. Now, with production commencing on Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby,” kids who don’t want to read will also…

What to Watch on IFC: August 29 – September 4

Article: What to Watch on IFC: August 29 – September 4

How did it get to be September already?! If you’re as taken aback as we are, you’ll want to curl up on the couch and ponder the passing of days. Or maybe make a fort and watch some quality programming. Either way, we have some shows to comfort and entertain you while hang out in…

Kevin Costner joins the cast of Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained”

Article: Kevin Costner joins the cast of Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained”

We’re big Quentin Tarantino fans, and we make no effort to hide it from folks. But even taking that into account, we’re outrageously excited for the filmmaker’s “Django Unchained.” Part of that is due to the sensationalistic subject matter, and the idea of the post-Civil War American South getting the “Inglourious Basterds” treatment, but equally…

Five Leonardo DiCaprio Movies In Order Of Confusing-ness

Article: Five Leonardo DiCaprio Movies In Order Of Confusing-ness

Double your pleasure, double your fun when we air “The Aviator” at 8 p.m. ET and at 11:30 p.m. ET. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Howard Hughes in this Martin Scorsese directed fast-moving, epic-scale biopic that documents the life and loves one of the most colorful Americans of the 20th century. Also, did we…

Leonardo DiCaprio Likes to Freak Out On Camera

Article: Leonardo DiCaprio Likes to Freak Out On Camera

These film montages that have become all the rage on the Internet over the last several months are fun. But when done well, they can also function as a new form of film criticism. Take this new one, for instance, featuring a collection of freak outs by one Mr. Leonardo DiCaprio: It’s funny: DiCaprio doesn’t…

‘Sling Blade’ And The Portrayal of Developmental Disability

Article: ‘Sling Blade’ And The Portrayal of Developmental Disability

Tonight at 11:30 p.m. ET we are showing Sling Blade, a film that marked the directorial debut of country singer turned actor Billy Bob Thornton. The film was based on George Hickenlooper’s acclaimed short “Some Folks Call it a Sling Blade” and brought Thornton into Hollywood’s spotlight and, perhaps, to Angelina Jolie’s attention. (Remember when…

Facial hair, the secret to going from teen heartthrob to serious actor.

Article: Facial hair, the secret to going from teen heartthrob to serious actor.

Regardless of how you feel about the “Twilight” franchise, it’s hard not to read Brooks Barnes’ brief New York Times profile of vampire heartthrob Robert Pattinson and not feel at least a little bad for the dude. Pattinson’s apparently been reduced to giving interviews in “an outdoor nook surrounded by tall hedges” while noting how…

Christopher Nolan: No 3D, no cell phone, lots of diagrams.

Article: Christopher Nolan: No 3D, no cell phone, lots of diagrams.

“I don’t have e-mail, a cell phone…it gives me more time to think,” said Christopher Nolan, which might’ve been the greatest revelation from his appearance at this weekend’s inaugural Los Angeles Times Hero Complex Film Festival. His admission came in response to a question about online chatter concerning his films, though it was evident others…

The Island of Lost Souls

Article: The Island of Lost Souls

It’s a good week for fans of movies about paranoid loners who stumble on enormous conspiracies while investigating seemingly innocuous crimes on remote, stormy islands filled with figurative ghosts. Funny how two movies that fit that basic description might be released in the same week. Funnier still that the films are from two master directors…

Christopher Nolan is the new James Cameron.

Article: Christopher Nolan is the new James Cameron.

11 years ago, Glenn Kenny (then of Premiere) was attending Sun-/Slamdance and shared a bus ride with a dejected-looking British pair. “The couple were feeling a little down,” he wrote recently, “as they had a film… in its way as formally daring as ‘Blair Witch’ was, but it didn’t matter, as ‘Blair Witch’ was garnering…

Scorsese’s Sinatra biopic – who’s it gonna be?

Article: Scorsese’s Sinatra biopic – who’s it gonna be?

I’ve got high hopes that someone will have an intervention with Martin Scorsese regarding his Leonardo DiCaprio addiction in time for the casting of this biopic, titled simply, “Sinatra.” Scorsese is the right director to helm such a picture, his love and deft handling of cool/macho packs of guys is half the battle. Once upon…

Article: Movie Marriages: Four Actor-Director Duos Who Are Joined at the Hip

By Matt Singer If it feels like Russell Crowe is in every movie Ridley Scott directs these days, that’s because he is. After winning a Best Actor Oscar for “Gladiator” in 2000, Crowe reeled off three Scott pictures in three years: 2006′s “A Good Year,” 2007′s “American Gangster” and this year’s “Body of Lies.” And…
