The Five Year Engagement Can, At Times, Feel Five Years Long
movienews02
The arduousness of planning a wedding is undeniably time-consuming, but the amount of time that goes into unmaking the plans is the source of Tom Solomon (Jason Segel) and Violet Barnes’ (Emily Blunt) relationship discord. Directed by Nicholas Stoller (who previously worked with Segel on The Muppets), The Five Year Engagement takes us on a [...]

Sam Mendes' 'Skyfall' Shooting in Istanbul, Bond Cast & Crew Arrive
movienews02
Bond's back in Turkey! This is the third time in the history of the James Bond series that 007 has gone to Istanbul. Back in 1963, From Russia with Love was shot and took place in Istanbul, and 1999's The World Is Not Enough was also partially set in the city. Now they are back again, as 007.com and Sony's marketing machine has announced that shooting is starting, launching with a big press conference held at the beautiful Ciragan Palace Kempinski hotel in Istanbul. They posted a short highlight reel from the event, with director Sam Mendes, stars Daniel Craig, Bérénice Marlohe and Naomie Harris all talking about shooting in the city.



So far we know that Skyfall has been shooting in London, at the world famous Pinewood Studios in the UK, in Shanghai, China (as seen in this video blog), and now Turkey and Istanbul, too. It's definitely going to ...

DR. SEUSS' THE LORAX
movienews02
RYAN: I know you're not into family films but over the years you have seen a couple animated films that you actually like in spite of yourself.

CAROLINE: This is true. Extremely rare, but true.

RYAN: I know you'd like this one.

CAROLINE: Why?

RYAN: It's just excellent across the board. For starters, and I didn't going in... but it's a musical! And two of the songs are as great as some of the best Disney songs from their animated canon.

CAROLINE: Wow. That's quite the compliment.

RYAN: I was so surprised. I didn't know from the trailer that it would be and the singing and dancing was faboosh.

CAROLINE: I'm glad of it. Who are the featured voices in this besides Danny DeVito at the titular Lorax?

RYAN: Zac Efron, Taylor Swift, Betty White and Ed Helms.

CAROLINE: Ok, there's some talent. Did Zac and Taylor duet?

RYAN: Sadly no, there wasn't that; but it's okay.

CAROLINE: That's surprising though.

RYAN: I really loved the colors and the Seuss design and it's almost Tim Burton-ish that way, with all the random shapes and exotic hues. And all the little animals in the movie have such personality and character and are super cute and comical.

CAROLINE: It does have that look. Did you see it in 3D?

RYAN: Yeah and it was pretty decent. And I took along my 11-year-old niece and 9-year-old nephew to the screening and they both were completely mesmerized. At lunch following, my niece was commenting on the environmental theme so it really is effective that way.

CAROLINE: Another kids' movie with a message.

RYAN: Well some of the best tales do have a moral to the story and this one is quite specific and unique. It's An Inconvenient Truth for the grade school set.

CAROLINE: [laughs] Well put.

RYAN: I thoroughly enjoyed this film. It's a delight to watch with a brilliant score and terrific talent from all aspects. There isn't, like, innuendo humor for adults the way Shrek had, but I think it will absolutely appeal to all ages who attend along with the intended audience.

Mirror Mirror (Will Make You Feel Queerer and Queerer)
movienews02
The last role one would have anticipated Julia Roberts in is as the Evil Queen in Snow White (though in a way, the Evil Queen is very much a prostitute à la Vivian in Pretty Woman with her willingness to peddle her body/looks in exchange for money). However, what allured Roberts to the film was director Tarsem [...]

21 JUMP STREET
movienews02
RYAN: The TV series made Johnny Depp a star. I never watched the show in the late 80s/early 90s so I can't compare it.

CAROLINE: I didn't ever really see it either. And I didn't see this film. How was it?

RYAN: It's good, not great.

CAROLINE: I can't say I'm all that surprised. Was it even funny?

RYAN: Yeah there is some decent comedy. And I much prefer Jonah Hill in this kind of role versus what he did in Moneyball. LBH, I still can't believe he was nominated for an Oscar.

CAROLINE: I know. It's actually hard to believe. How was Channing? Was his shirt off the whole time?

RYAN: Actually not even once.

CAROLINE: I'm shocked! I figured he has that written into his contract at this point.

RYAN: He's fine but never really an amazing actor. He's no Ryan Gosling. But you know who was in this but I didn't realize till the end?

CAROLINE: Who?

RYAN: James Franco's younger brother Dave. He plays the drug dealer at the school.

CAROLINE: Gee, I wonder how he got in the business.

RYAN: Exactly. He's good though; so talent runs in the family.

CAROLINE: It's billed as an action comedy. How's the action?

RYAN: It's tame. There are no OMG Mission Impossible-like action moments. And the comedy is always played before the action. It is a bit cheesy at times and other times outright crosses the line for a laugh.

CAROLINE: How was the scene where Jonah has the blond hair?

RYAN: It's funny. It's fine.

CAROLINE: You sound kinda middle of the road on this.

RYAN: I think the young boy demographic will like this, though it is rated R. It's just a total bromance comedy. Jonah and Channing have decent bro-chemistry but I just wasn't completely roused by this the way we are by, like, Steve Carel comedies, you know?

CAROLINE: Oh honey, I know.

RYAN: There is one fantastic surprise at the end of the film that makes for a great moment but I don't wanna give anything away for those who want to see this.

CAROLINE: Please don't.

RYAN: This film is relatively enjoyable. The audience I screened it with seemed to be enjoying it a lot more than me I just think compared to other comedies, like Bridesmaids, or Wanderlust, currently out, this isn't as good. Where I recommended those, this one can be more of a rental.

Elle Fanning Also Starring in Glasgow-Set Musical 'God Help the Girl'
movienews02
It's very interesting to watch the career of Elle Fanning. She's already worked with J.J. Abrams, Cameron Crowe, David Fincher, Francis Ford Coppola all by age 14, who's next? Variety reports on another role she's taking in a musical set in Glasgow, Scotland titled God Help the Girl, written and directed by Stuart Murdoch, lead singer of Belle and Sebastian. The project, which has been in the works since late 2003, will also star English actor Olly Alexander, seen in Enter the Void and Gulliver's Travels. If you're familiar with Murdoch's 2009 album "God Help the Girl" or the Kickstarter, then you may already know about this.

The film is being produced by Barry Mendel, but earned over $120,000 in funding through Kickstarter (their page). Olly Alexander will play James, a cynical guitarist who accompanies Eve's singing and becomes a mentor to Cass (Fanning), an American teen who tags alongside the ...

The Hunger Games: Leaving You Hungry For More
movienews02
The success of Suzanne Collins’ series, The Hunger Games, was invariably going to translate into a film adaptation. Plus, the concept of a post-apocalyptic world is all too appropriate at this juncture in time. Why, I wouldn’t be surprised if we were all fighting for a chance to live on a televised competition in ten [...]

Casa De Mi Padre (No, It?s Not A Telenovela, But It Could Be)

Will Ferrell speaking Spanish. Yes, it is indeed comedy gold. In Casa De Mi Padre, there is a no holds barred approach to making fun of every single aspect of Spanish–specifically Mexican–culture. To further legitimize that over the top ribbing, Latino staples Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna appear as warring drug lords fighting over [...]
