I Am Link

.
--- Independence Day - Director Roland Emmerich seems like the type to bristle at being called "openly gay filmmaker Roland Emmerich" but he is openly gay, so here goes - openly gay filmmaker Roland Emmerich is finally making a gay movie, one about Stonewall, and here's Nathaniel talking about it over at The Film Experience. Nat interviewed him once and has some insight. I'm a little bit torn on the subject of casting - casting an openly gay actor would be great, but I really wanna see Jeremy Irvine make out with another guy, so...

--- Super Bad - File this under" news that I missed while I was out of town or recuperating from being out of town" - can't believe I forgot to mention it though... so Cabin in the Woods and Buffy writer-director Drew Goddard is indeed making the Spider-Man spin-off movie Sinister Six, about the villains of Spidey's world teaming up. How weird that his superhero world will be facing off with Joss' huh? I mean they're all Marvel but they can't mix.
.
--- Jock Street - I liked the first 21 Jump Street movie well enough, but the excision of Brie Larson from the sequel, whatever the reasoning might be, is not the way to get me pumped about revisiting the world. So the only reason I'm really looking forward to the sequel is that I know Channing Tatum runs around in a football uniform in it a bunch as seen in these wonderful set pictures, and they really need to play this fact up more in the trailers, of which there is a new one. Just one quick shot isn't gonna do it, fellas.

--- Making Room - Not that Brie Larson doesn't have stuff to do! Important sounding stuff - she's just signed on to star in Room, an indie about a woman who's been held captive in a small you-guessed-it room for an extended period of time. It's based on a best-seller (which I haven't heard of) and was adapted into a script by the book's author. Anybody read it?

--- Smarty Pants - I may have heard about this before and just forgotten but Michael Fassbender and Colin Firth are set to make a movie about the author Thomas Wolfe and his agent (Fassy is Wolfe) to be called Genius, and Nicole Kidman - who starred with Firth in The Railway Man which is just now coming out after a long delay - has reportedly joined it. Speculation is she'll play Fassy's muse. How do I get to play Fassy's muse? I will literally do anything. (pic via)

--- Skin Walker - I'm not really surprised that Fox is making noises about giving Mystique an X-Men spin-off movie what with Jennifer Lawrence being, you know, the biggest new movie-star in the world and everything. They probably wanna keep her around and keep her happy if they can. I wasn't bowled over by her in the first movie but then I don't really think anybody was - say what yo will about Rebecca Romijn otherwise, she was ace in this role. Really though we all just want a Storm movie, sans Halle Berry (Lupita! Lupita!), why can't we have that dammit? I guess talk of a female-led superhero (villain whatever) movie is progress - asking for a black-female-led one might be insanity or something.

--- Name Starts With X - I can't believe I missed this - yesterday was the 15th anniversary of one of my very favorite movies, Doug Liman's ravin-in-Vegas flick Go. Joe Reid was on it though (he and I have bonded over our shared love for the movie many a time) and ranked the film's cast then and now. What a cast.

--- Undead Anniversary - And apparently yesterday was also the 10th anniversary of Shaun of the Dead! I am a total flop, missing everything left and right. Sorry Shaun, sorry Ed! You can spank me with your cricket bat for my sins. Well here's a list of things the movie taught us about relationships over at Film School Rejects in honor of its ten years.

--- Sparkling Wit - I don't know if you've been following the delightful series "A Year With Kate" over at The Film Experience that Anne-Marie has been hosting - she's watching every single Katharine Hepburn movie over the span of fifty-two weeks - but yesterday she got around to my absolute favorite Kate flick, George Cukor's 1938 film Holiday with Cary Grant. Loove that movie so so much.

--- Put A Bird In It - Do you guys like Portlandia? I love Portlandia. So the news that Carrie Brownstein has just joined the cast of Todd Haynes' Carol - yes the Patricia Highsmith adaptation with Cate Blanchett - sounds plenty fine to me. She's playing a woman who has "an encounter" with Rooney mara's character. (Like I said yesterday I have to re-read the book, my memory's too fuzzy.) Anyway hopefully we'll get Blanchett on Portlandia as a swap here.

--- And finally yesterday I linked to THR's cover-story on the hunks of Ryan Murphy's The Normal Heart adaptation and asked you to Do Dump or Marry the main trio of Matthew Bomer, Taylor Kitsch and Mark Ruffalo - well today I see a video I missed of them chatting... specifically them chatting about Taylor Kitsch's crotch. Ding dong, we have a winner.

They Get Lost In Their Eyes

.
For all of the gigantic special effects you see in the latest trailer for the new X-Men movie (and I include Hugh Jackman's muscles under the heading of "gigantic special effects") the most exciting shot is simply the electricity shot between Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy, seen above. That's what actors can do, y'all. (If only Evan Peters wasn't so distracting in the background though.) Watch the trailer here:

Quote of the Day

.
"After the show we go backstage where I meet Brad and Angelina. Brad Pitt smells amazing, like nothing I've ever smelled. Eventually we ask what cologne he's wearing and he tells us, "I don't wear cologne, it's just my musk I guess." I have to choose not to believe him because it would just be unfair to mankind. Angelina is gorgeous and elegant and they are like The Sun and The Moon."

If you haven't read this already you really need to go read this piece by Jennifer Lawrence's friend and Oscar date Laura Simpson, where she describes what the experience of going to the Oscars would be like for a nobody like most of us. Well a nobody who's friends with Jennifer Lawrence and therefore gets to go to all the parties and hang out backstage with all the stars and get Glenn Close's "Oscar secret" told to them. That's not much of a nobody,  really. Anyway it's a really fun piece with lots of amusing star-fucking moments - who wouldn't follow Bill Murray around a party if given the chance? - and I love the note she ends it on, about actresses in general. Very fine. Shocking nobody, Jennifer Lawrence hangs with good people. And didja hear it was Jared Leto that JLaw was yelling at when she walked out on stage during the show for laughing? (Well Jared and/or his family members.) As if I needed her to burrow deeper into my heart! We are forever, Jennifer.

Beauty Beauty Beauty Beast

.
Last week I introduced you to a new series over at The Film Experience called "Beauty Vs. Beast" where we're pitting "good" guys against "bad" guys and who we rooting for when we watch their movies (since it's never as simple as "good versus bad" when a movie's worth half a damn) - head on over there for this week's latest, where we're pitting the main foursome of American Hustle against each other. It's a mountain of hair-do on top of a lot of moral compromise.

I'd Know That Backside Anywhere

.
There are two things worth capturing in the new flash teaser for the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Fourgy movie, which you can watch over here - there's that shot of Michael Fassbender from behind wearing a nicely snug uniform of some sort (it looks pretty similar to what they had Ian McKellen's Magneto in during his prison stint) seen above, and down below there's the first glimpse of what we assume it will look like when Evan Peters exercizes his mutant ability, which we've heard Bryan Singer sing the praises of already - yadda yadda 300 frames per second yadda. It looks kinda silly here, honestly.

Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Clueless (1995)

Travis: I would like to say this. Tardiness is not something you can do on your own. Many, many people contributed to my tardiness. I would like to thank my parents for never giving me a ride to school, the LA city bus driver who took a chance on an unknown kid and last but not least, the wonderful crew from McDonalds who spend hours making those egg McMuffins without which I might never be tardy. 

All I want is for someone to paraphrase Travis' speech from Clueless as their acceptance speech at the Oscars once in my lifetime. THAT IS ALL I WANT. They don't even have to do the whole thing - just the last line about McMuffins would satisfy. I could see Jennifer Lawrence doing it. Dare to dream. I'm just gonna have to go work on getting my own damned Oscar and do it myself, probably.It would all be worth it! Years of effort, sacrifice and degradation and finally triumph, all for that one moment!

The Whores Hustle And The Hustlers Whore

.
I was so totally into American Hustle for about ten minutes. Oh maybe it was longer than that, who can tell - its pointlessly fractured timeline, skittering back and forth inexplicably, keeps a person from keeping track (perhaps that's the point). But I remember thinking as the clothing racks tumbled around Amy Adams and Christian Bale, "Golly I'm charmed." Alas that wasn't to last - Russell's films are always loose shambling things but this one especially so, and not in the charming way I was hoping with those dry cleaner butterfly kisses. It's just kind of incoherent, sloppy - skittish and kind of lacking the propulsive spirit the zooming camera's begging for. Scorsese wrung out, hung to dry. I just wasn't there. 

But the ladies! Really all I want to talk about are the ladies. Like, can we talk about Amy Adams' magnificent accent work? A third-rate mangling of hoity toity faux-dame inflections that her character no doubt learned from Charlie's Angels or some similar already fraudulent shit - it shouldn't fool a single person hearing it but she knows all they're hearing is her impressive decolletage anyway - and she deploys it in such unexpected ways, as if it coming out of her mouth when it's coming out of her mouth surprises even her. Amy's awesome, making minxy magic out of a mess on the page. Jennifer Lawrence has less to work with still and just flies right off the rails, but it's usually super fun to watch anyway, til the movie half-asses out on her. And I was giddy every time Elizabeth Rohm was on-screen - I woulda happily wandered off to a spin-off following that pile of electric skunk around. 

Renner fares best out of the men but maybe I was just so happy whenever Rohm was on-screen (she's his wife) that I was projecting? Their last scene with the Benetton Brady Bunch is one of the funniest things Russell's filmed, anyway. Bale dials it down and leads with the gut, literally, but he's almost too pulled back.  And meanwhile Bradley Cooper's all coked-up lip-gnawing and hand-waving and go go go go, and if there's a less convincing crier making movies today I haven't found 'em. (But man I loved the scene at Studio 54 anyway.)

Anyway anyway, I suppose if Russell's point is people are incoherent (a point with which I tend to agree, slash live) then he made it, but it makes for a strangely limp "lively" film. All the beats feel pre-handled; molested. Paul Thomas Anderson did this better sixteen years ago with characters whose names I can conjure up right this second - I couldn't tell you the names of most of Russell's sad sacks only a week into American Hustle taking up space in my imagination.

5 Off My Head - Catching Fire Off Catching Fire

.
I saw Catching Fire this past weekend. You saw Catching Fire this past weekend. We all saw Catching Fire this past weekend. Here are five-ish things off the top of my head that I feel worth saying.

1. I think maybe now that I'm further removed from having read the books (I read the first one probably a couple months after it came out, and then I read each successive sequel on the day they were released) I feel better inclined to look at the movies slightly less clouded by my fannish enthusiasm. In retrospect I've downgraded my opinion of the first movie since the excitement wore off - I think there was a lot of good casting going on, which went a long way (praise be the person who decided Jennifer Lawrence was it), but the film's strangely timid for what it is. Catching Fire, on the other hand, well there's the thrumming of a real passion underneath it all. Director Francis Lawrence really made this feel like a world about to split at the seams. (The first stop on their Victory Tour, the one at Rue's District, is heart-rending.)

2. But why should anybody ever listen to what I have to say when I initially doubted the casting of Jennifer Lawrence way back when? Stupid, stupid, stoopid. She anchors these things with tremendous flair - Katniss is a big old bundle of contradictions, and Lawrence gets them all across with astonishing ease. Watching her face we feel it all churning right there under those apple cheeks, and effortlessly so.

3. Similarly (like Joe Reid, who apologized to her in this most delightful piece today) I had my doubts when Jena Malone was cast as the character of Johanna Mason. Johanna wasn't my favorite character in the books like she was Joe's (and I think he understates Finnick's role - there's more to him than just a swimmer's build), but she's a firecracker and definitely integral to the success of what's to come from here on out. Jena Malone, once upon a time - read: Donnie Darko - I was all over that. I thought she gave a marvelously underrated, surprising performance in The Ruins, too. Then she gave some dumb annoying interview, I can't really even remember its contents so much anymore, but it was so irritating and pretentious and awful that my opinion swerved on a dime. Never doubt my fickleness, y'all. Thankfully though we can put that behind us now, because she is top notch marvelous in Catching Fire. More than anybody up there she makes you feel the rage that the victors are experiencing over the betrayal that this Quarter Quell represents, and the "fuck this shit we're done" that it snaps in pretty much all of them. I knew what was up with Johanna, I read the books, but watching the movie Jena Malone made me feel like I had no idea what this girl was gonna do next. She was thrilling. That scene in the elevator is electric, popping in a dozen different directions at once.

4. Back to Finnick. Sam Claflin is not as horrible as I was afraid he'd be - I actually think he hits a couple of the emotional notes really well. He and Jennifer Lawrence play off of each other fantastically; maybe that's how he got the job. Their relationship is immediately more interesting than the one between Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth, for instance - it's a good thing Hemsworth's pretty blue eyes glow bright enough that you don't care what he's saying, since he apparently doesn't either. Still Claflin just never sold me on Finnick's supposed eye-popping charisma, which is crucial. Jena Malone, that little pinch-faced ragamuffin, pranced him right out of the place.

5. Weirdly the first half of the film works better than pretty much anything once we're inside the Game. Once we're inside the dome, it becomes an hour of running away from CG things, and the tension gets stretched thin. (Although I did get to see a baboon underwater, which is one to check off the "Things I Never Expected To See In My Life" list.) But the build-up to the dome, the interactions between the characters (holla Elizabeth Banks getting stuff to really do this time, and being absolutely ace at it) and the introduction of the new characters, that all pretty much works like gangbusters. That said, I tweeted this right after seeing the film but I stand by it - I really really had to hold myself down in my seat to keep myself from cheering at the end, when... well you know, Katniss does what she does. A moment of triumph that feels earned, and spectacular. And scary and horrible too, since what it forebodes is all that. Anyway the film sticks the landing. Bring on the Mockingjays!

This Is Where You Tell Me...

.
... what you thought of Sam Claflin in Catching Fire. Is it the Finnicktastrophe we feared or what? And what about all the rest of it? It's weird how quiet I've been about the new Hunger Games movie for the past few weeks, isn't it? Wacky and weird! It's the biggest thing outside of sliced bread right now and my yap's been set to silent. I don't know why, I suppose it's been so everywhere I haven't had anything to add. I'm not seeing the movie until tomorrow, but I'm sure some of you already have, or will over the course of the weekend, since it's already scheduled to make the GNP of a dozen small countries in the next three days. So have at it in the comments. Thoughts, feelings, so forth. I wanna know!

Days of Future Roid Rage

.
Well they've gone and done it. Wolverine's not sexy anymore. Granted being riddled with bullet-holes isn't usually The Look, no matter who's involved, but Hugh just looks like an especially petulant hemorrhoid. Which on the one hand, gross. But on the other hand it does mean that he's finally grown into what Wolverine looks like in the Comics...

... so I suppose that's a plus for somebody. I'm just afraid he's going to pop. Yadda yadda the trailer for X-Men Days of Future Fourgy is here, you can watch it below. I suppose it's just the first one and a lot of people who aren't geeking on the internet all day don't know the story we're getting and so they're using this trailer to build up to that last shot's reveal; me, I'm surprised that that's the only shot we get of the two time-lines overlapping.

I Am Link

.
--- The Craft of War - Seeing the news that model-turned-actor Travis Fimmel was maybe set to star in it I was simultaneously turned on and rolling my eyes at the idea of a Warcraft movie, but I guess I'd forgotten that Moon director Duncan Jones was going to direct it. There's never no eye-rolling in Duncan Jones' general direction! Colin Farrell is also apparently up for one of the film's four leads.

--- Blue Movie - I'm thinking about going to see Blue is the Warmest Color tonight, have any of you seen it yet? There's been some interesting chatter about the movie online (seems to be a movie that inspires interesting chatter of all sorts), but two pieces from the New York Times especially caught my eye - Manola Dargis is not a fan of the film and sight unseen I was already worried about the things that are troubling her. Meanwhile AO Scott takes a look at the news that the IFC Center here in New York isn't enforcing the film's NC-17 rating and is allowing minors in to see it, and Alyssa Rosenberg has a nice follow-up to that. I suppose I'll have more of an opinion on all this once I see the movie!

--- Boo For Who - It is Halloween week and so I imagine there will be mountains of fine horror writing that I'm going to miss out on, since I'm shit at keeping up; anybody see's anything good, send me a link, I would love it! But hey look here's one - over at The Dissolve three smart folks have a chat about what it is in this sort of jaded day and age that we generally find scary right now.

--- Dead Aaaaight - I'm really at the point where I refuse to report on this stuff until something is real, but man I wanna report on it so here - both Bruce Campbell and the director of the Evil Dead remake Fede Alvarez have come out saying that Sam Raimi is totally gonna make Army of Darkness 2, aka Evil Dead 4. I mean, I just can't get too invested in this yet, we're been hearing this for so long. But believe me, if it happens, kaboom goes my brain.

--- Auteur All Hallows - Because my friend Joe Reid understands that all you need to do on Halloween is watch John Carpenter movies from the moment you wake up until the moment your eyes roll back in your head with unconsciousness, here's the way you need to plot out the day. Take two - You can also do this with Wes Craven.
.
--- Beautiful Wickedness - Taking the cue from American Horror Story's delightfully wicked third season, The Film Experience is giving love to the best in cinematic witchery this week, here's the first entry on the Wicked Queen from Disney's Snow White. Many more to come over the next few days, too!

--- And finally here's the last trailer for Catching Fire before it comes out in... just twenty-five days? Holy hell I have not been paying attention, I didn't realize it was so soon. The arena in Part 2 is what this story's all about, it's really spectacular, and you get a glimpse or two of it in this new trailer. Smartly this series always keeps the big things hidden away in the commercials though, I appreciate that.

Pic of the Day

.
(click to embiggen) Well, duh. Obviously the picture of Hugh Jackman's shirtless Wolverine for the new X-Men movie is today's picture of the day. We like to pretend that there's such a thing as free will but then something like this comes along and poof, goodbye humanity. There are a few more pictures from the movie over at The Playlist. The one of James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender having chess-sex is nice. This is the only one with Hugh Jackman's nipples in it though, so it wins.

Seconds of Future Movie

.
Did y'all see the super short bits of footage from X-Men Days of Future Fourgy that director Bryan Singer unleashed on Instagram last night? Somehow I hadn't seen anything about it today until just now, don't know how that happened. Anyway even though it's only a few seconds he managed to get both shirtless Hugh Jackman and Hugh Jackman bulge into it, so I'm sold.

There is plenty else to see, at least 
in microscopic increments. We get some Fassy, natch...


The shot of him dragging Jennifer Lawarence across the ground is really scary. Her expression! Jinkies. You leave her alone you big meanie!

There are glimpses of the new cast, and of the old cast.

(And yeah, I'm talking to you when I say "old," Halle Berry.)
Oh and everybody gives an O-face for good measure.

Quote of the Day

"I know Peeta would be into it, for sure. He’s very sensitive, in touch with his emotions. I think it really might solve a lot of their problems. You know what? I’m going to pitch that idea. Let’s make it a – what’s it called when three people are in a relationship together? A triad? That’ll go over well with Middle America."

--- That's what Josh Hutcherson had to say when asked if Katniss should just have a threeway with Peeta and Gale and get the romantic complications over with already, via this interview with Out. You can see several new pictures of him at that link, too.

I Am Link

.
--- Dragon Forward - British actor Joel Fry, seen there to the left, has joined the cast of the next season of A Game of Thrones in the important role of Loraq, who's someone that Daenerys will be dealing with a bunch in the next big city she comes upon. They're speeding up Dany's story a lot then, because he doesn't show up until the fifth book, while this season's supposed to be primarily based off the second half of the third. Also Kit Harington says the next season's a bloodbath!

--- Under Studies - All hail the Supporting Actress Smackdown, StinkyLulu's glorious tribute to actressing at the edges through the lens of the Academy Awards - it returned via The Film Experience last month and today comes the second chapter, taking on the lovely ladies nominated in the year 1980. I've only seen two of the performances discussed, and it's probably not hard to guess which two.

--- Good Chap - I guess Hugh Jackman liked what he saw when he saw Sharlto Copley in nothing but short shorts in Elysium, just like we all did, because he's just joined Copley's next flick with director Neil Blomkamp, the robot gangster flick called Chappie.
.
--- The Red Dress - I'm not sure what led me to stumbling upon this 2010 piece on Ellen Burtyn's performance in Requiem For a Dream by Matt Mazur at PopMatters this weekend, or how I'd missed it back when it was posted originally, but man am I glad I caught up with it, it's one of the finest pieces on Burstyn's astonishing work that I've read.

--- All Over Amnesiac - NME chatted with Stanley Donwood, the man behind the art of Radiohead, about how he came up with all of their album covers. He's done all of them save their first record. I can't even tell you how many hours of my life I've spent staring into the sharp horrible mountains on the cover of Kid A.

--- Bad Brother - If Marvel was going to make a movie with Loki as the central character, Tom Hiddleston would like it to focus on Loki's troubled romance with the character called The Enchantress. If that means we get Tom out of his big rubber suit a little bit, I'm down.

--- Blonde & Blonder - It's probably just a one-scene cameo but I love this, it's the only thing that's made me curious about seeing the movie - Jennifer Lawrence is going to play a flash-backed young version of the character that Kathleen Turner's playing in the Dumb and Dumber sequel. I didn't even know Kathleen Turner was in it - that's enough on its own to grab me! I do really like the original D&D though, I still quote it all the time.
.

I Am Link

.
--- Festival Fever - Eli Roth recounts taking his first film Cabin Fever to the Midnight Madness section of the Toronto Film Festival back in 2002, and the way the buzz was built from the internet outwards into a crazy thing. It's a really sweet funny piece, I don't care what you people say, I still like Eli. Can't wait to see his new one, which apparently gobsmacked the censors. (thanks Mac)

--- Hey Pervs (aka people who like to look at females naked) get ready, Jennifer Lawrence says that she's going to be doing the whole nekkid Mystique thing a whole bunch more than she did in the first X-Men movie in its sequel. Although apparently she's a liar because in the next breath she says it's a body suit she wears now, and not just make-up. Dirty fantasies dashed!

--- Ghost Ginger - We've loved Jared Harris ever since he serenaded Jane Adams with "You Light Up My Life" as a strangely sexy mustachioed Russian taxi driver with sticky fingers and a violent wife in Happiness, so we're super happy to see him sign up for both The Man From UNCLE with Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill (yummers) and also the Poltergeist remake where, get this, he's playing the Zelda Rubenstein part. Okay okay the part's been totally changed, which was smart because there was no way they were gonna be able to touch what Zelda did. But still. His part is playing the role that Zelda did. This house is clean, my ass.

--- Rave On - Greta Gerwig is teaming up with French director Mia Hansen-Love to make a movie called Eden, which will chronicle the early 90s techno music scene; Gerwig's actually just one part of a globe-trotting cast that will follow a DJ caught up in the ecstasy-fueled rave run. Brady Corbet will also star.

--- Master Detective - Ian McKellen is re-teaming with his Gods & Monsters director Bill Condon, hooray! They're going to make a Sherlock Holmes movie, too! McKellen will play the sleuth in retirement, getting pulled back in to a case that never got solved that's been driving him batty. This is so much more appealing than those RDJ stinkers.

--- Father Killer - Jim Mickle is quietly but assuredly building up a nice filmography - so far he's directed the surprisingly creepy rat-people movie Mulberry Street, the vamp-pocalypse flick Stake Land, and the upcoming horror remake of We Are What We Are, all good, shockingly understated for what they are movies. So we're paying attention to him. Just announced he's lining up what's next - a revenge thriller called Cold in July, which will star Sam Shepard and Don Johnson as two grieving fathers.

--- Brie Crazy - Over at The Film Experience Nathaniel got to talk to Short Term 12's Brie Larson, and that right there ought to be enough to make you click over. But beyond it just existing, it's a really great interview! She is, to quote Mike Yanagita, such a super lady.

--- About Adam - Jason Reitman made Young Adult, and for that, a lifetime of passes. (I also love Juno, for what it's worth.) His next movie Labor Day, with Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin, is out this Fall, and now comes word his next film will star... Adam Sandler. But you know - actually trying to act Adam Sandler. Like Punchdrunk Love. (Hopefully not Spanglish. And hopefully not Jack & Jill, but that's a given.) Jennifer Garner, Rosemarie Dewitt, and Cameron Diaz are all circling the film too.

A very happy 23rd birthday to Jennifer Lawrence today. Good grief, she's just 23 years old. I was sleeping in a puddle of my own vomit when I was 23 so I hope she appreciates her Oscar and her Nicholas Hoult and so on...

Damn damn damn her.
