Siraj Syed reviews Passengers: Window seat at the journey of a life-time

Siraj Syed reviews Passengers: Window seat at the journey of a life-time They’ve got it right. Not perfect, but right. Mind-boggling special effects and a mind-toggling emotional narrative. It’s an elusive, coveted recipé, and for once, somebody nailed it. Use state-of-the-art VFX, but blend them with an equally compelling story-line, sometimes shaken, sometimes stirred, and then pray you hit bull’s eye. Passengers is a journey that starts in outer space, but gets you...

Sweetheart-Break: Why the "Hollywood Star" Model Never Worked for Women & Can It Be Fixed?

  by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent   Most publications have obits written in advance, especially for high-risk stars like Lindsay Lohan who are firmly in the "dead pool," yet the fault is not in our Stars but in the Hollywood Star paradigm itself, where girls and women are concerned. Consider the first movie star, Canadian Florence Lawrence (1886-1938) who reigned on screen from about 1906 to 1912.  The zenith to the nadir of Florence Lawrence (whos...

The New Box Office Trifecta: Shailene Woodley, Jennifer Lawrence, Kristen Stewart

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent   If the rumors are true, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 reboot actually nixed Shailene Woodley's cameo, you have to wonder what they were thinking. She's on the cover of Marie Claire (read: "This is What a Badass Looks Like"), giving workout tips in People Magazine, and breaking big at the box office. In fact, Shailene Woodley, 22, went from George Clooney sidekick in The Descendants to fronting Divergent with bullets to ...

The 2014 Academy Awards Oscars with Adrienne Papp

  By Adrienne Papp I get invited to a lot of social events  as a journalist / publicist, but there is nothing quite like the Oscars.  Excitement is in the air, everyone is full of wonder, looking forward to this fairytale-like evening with its never ending magic. The unexpected always happens just to keep things fresh year after year ( just likeU2 performing live  on stage.)  The 86th Oscars was really by far one of the best ever produced in Ho...

The 2014 Golden Globes Insider with Adrienne Papp

By Adrienne Papp True to their tradition, the 71st Golden Globe Awards,broadcast on Sunday evening from the Beverly Hilton, offered plenty of Hollywood glamour, some humorous and offbeat moments, and also provided a bellwether as to what the odds-on favorites  the Academy Awards might be. The Golden Globe broadcast garnered the show’s highest ratings in 10 years, being seen by 20.9 million total viewers, up 6% from last year according to Nielsen. Co-hosti...

Wolf of Wall St. Paid $60K for Jonah Hill & Other Disparities, Plus Tom Hanks' 2 Cents

  by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent   In the 1920's, Louise Brooks (Pandora's Box, Diary of a Lost Girl) famously took a 50 percent pay cut to work with German director G. W. Pabst, from $1000 a week to $500 a week, and flew to Berlin to make the best movies of the Kansas-born actor's career. In 2014, Jonah Hill cheerfully admits he accepted scale, around $60,000 USD, for a chance to be directed by Martin Scorsese in Wolf of Wall Street, for which he, along...

Oscars 2014: David O. Russell, "Tired" But This is His Year

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent For France, David O. Russell's Oscar-contender American Hustle is aptly retitled "American Bluff." And recently Russell told Le Monde by telephone interview, "Aujourd'hui, je suis fatigué, j'ai un rhume. Et je plane à 2000," on reaction to the 10 Nominations the film received from the Academy. Tired, with a cold, this is still The Year of David O. Russell as a unique American voice in filmmaking. Wi...

New Genre? Jennifer Lawrence & "Chicks with Sticks" Fight the Powder

  by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent   With the recent Buzzfeed headline that last night's Golden Globes winner Jennifer Lawrence stars in "the First Film with a Female Lead to Top the Box Office in 40 Years," it still stuns many in Hollywood that Hunger Games 2 actually beat up Iron Man 3 in the money race. Catching Fire is the top-grosser of 2013, but, this movie also officially ushers in a new genre.  We've gone from Chick Flicks to Chicks ...

Golden Globes Get Shined Up for 2014 & Kevin Bacon is Game

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent There are many reasons to wonder silently about the HFPA and their Golden Globe Awards, uhm, maybe the NSA knows more than some of us. (But not likely.) Last year Theo Kingma took the helm, and most of us hoped for the best after the sale to Peter Guber and friends.  What if the HFPA, founded in 1947, came back to its core directive as a charitable institution and gathering place for international journalists in Hollywood? Once w...

IFFBoston 2010: Wednesday (Opening), Thursday, Friday

user
The Independent Film Festival Boston kicked off their 2010 festivities by honoring Kevin Kline with the IFFBoston 2010 Career Achievement Award and screening his new film, The Extra Man.  This unusual comedy pairs Kline with Paul Dano in an unlikely mentor/mentee relationship.  Supported by Katie Homes, John C. Reilly, and Patti D’Arbanville, these seemingly unlikable characters navigate New York City, the written word, and women in a way that turns out to be completely charming.  The Q&...
