Danny Glover arrives in Thessaloniki

user

As Mariah has enjoyed success in her career, she is determined to share her time and energy with filmmakers her own age. In July, FreshiFilms will give Mariah a great audience of young ...

Posh Santa Barbara Film Festival Draws 31 Oscar Contenders!

user
Santa Barbara is a very upscale seaside paradise a scant 90 miles up the coast from Los Angeles, distinguished more for its socio-economic exclusivity, high rents, distinctive Spanish architecture and sprawling beachfront university than for the modest international film festival to which it has been home since 1985. Slowly building year by year and able to draw easily on Hollywood based talent because of its relative proximity to Tinseltown, the Santa Barbara fest has now come into its own and ...

MIRREN AND WHITTAKER SHINE AT S.A.G. AWARDS by Alex Deleon, Santa Barbara This is the jolly season of awards in Southern California -- seems like there's a different one every week somewhere in L.A. or vicinity. Following the Golden Globes (Foreign Press Awards) a couple of weeks back we now have the Screen Actors Guild (S.A.G.) awards which are similar and yet a bit different. Both sets of awards go to both film and television personalities, but the Globes recognize all kinds of categories (w...

Movie Review: DREAMGIRLS

user
The idea of pursuing a dream and falling prey to the pitfalls of fame -- that is, the themes that inhabit the 2-hour musical bombardment that is "Dreamgirls"-- is a dramatic concept that has been around forever; in fact, long before the Broadway premiere of the show, which took place more than 25 years ago. Bill Condon seems to know this. The Oscar-winning screenwriter of "Chicago", who also takes a stab at directing this time around, chronicles the lives of these fame-hungry performers like h...
