Predicting the Top 10 Fall Box Office Movies

Now that the summer movie season has come to a close, it’s time to look ahead to see what the fall movies have to offer. While the fall movies don’t often put up as big of numbers as their summer counterparts, there are a number of potential blockbusters waiting in the wings, but for the first time in four years, there won’t be a Star Wars movie at the end of the year, which opens up the field considerably. The end of the year is shaping up to be quite competitive though, which could leave a number of high profile releases lost in the shuffle.

While there is only one wide release opening on Christmas Day (Focus Features’ On the Basis of Sex), there are five major releases on December 21 (Alita: Battle Angel, Aquaman, Bumblebee, Holmes & Watson, and Welcome to Marwen), plus Mary Poppins Returns on December 19. This is almost exactly identical to last year’s holiday release schedule which saw the release of five new films (Downsizing, Father Figures, Pitch Perfect 3, The Greatest Showman and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) in the days before Christmas. Jumanji ($ 404.5 million) was the only bona fide hit of the five, although The Greatest Showman ($ 174.3 million) and Pitch Perfect 3 ($ 104.9 million) also fared well.

“I’m open to whatever you want to do with it,” Hardy said. “We’ve signed up for three of them. So it’s very much an open case. We’ll see what people’s responses are to it.”

“I think it’s an awesome character. I love playing both of them. It’s an amuse-bouche, and for Sony, it’s the Venom-verse launched in isolation, as it were,” he said.

The Fashion Movies You Need to See this Fall

We all get to see what happens on the runway at fashion week, but so much more goes on behind-the-scenes. And this fall, three new fashion documentaries are giving us an inside look into the lives of the most influential tastemakers in the industry. Directors have captured the worlds of shoe designer Manolo Blahnik, designer Zac Posen, and influential editor André Leon Talley, to showcase their legacies like never before. And if documentaries just aren’t your thing, the co-founders of the innovative fashion label Rodarte have got you covered with their debut feature-length film that mixes fashion with an intricate narrative. Keep scrolling to see the trailers for these debut fashion films and get ready to plan your next movie night!

Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes for Lizards 

If you want to see the behind-the-scences magic behind creating the world’s most-sought after shoes then this is the movie for you. Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes for Lizards is an 89-minute documentary, directed by British fashion journalist Michael Roberts, and the film delves into Manolo Blahnik’s fascination with footwear design, which ultimately led him to create his luxury brand. The doc features historic footage and exclusive one-on-one interviews with the biggest names in fashion (Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Naomi Campbell, and André Leon Telley) as they explain why ‘Manolos’ dominate the fashion world as the most iconic footwear of all time.

Release Date: September 15th

Where To Watch: Los Angeles (Landmark Quart) and New York (Landmark Sunshine)

House of Z 

Take a look inside the world of renowned fashion designer Zac Posen with this documentary focused on the label he launched at just 21-years-old. The compelling trailer shows Posen’s rise to fame as a “child genius designer” and his sudden fall to what he calls the “dark side” of fashion. The film emotionally captures how Posen’s influence on the industry took its course and what he had to do to regain his status as a prominent tastemaker behind a well-respected brand.

Release Date: September 6th

The Gospel According to André

Former Vogue editor-at-large André Leon Talley uses his first ever documentary to showcase that his impact on the fashion industry was so much more than just sitting in the front row at fashion week. Director Kate Novack puts Talley’s entire life on display and nothing is off limits: from his childhood in the segregated South to his first gig in New York at Andy Warhol’s Interview to his big break as editor-at-large at Vogue. The raw footage of Talley and the who’s who of fashion, paint a vivid and personal portrait of the fashion legend like you’ve never seen before.

Woodshock 

Rodarte’s co-founders, sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy, are taking the designer-turned-director route with their debut feature-length film, Woodshock. Kirsten Dunst, who is close friends with the Mulleavy sisters and often wears their designs, stars in this trippy film as a grieving woman who deals with a very traumatic loss through heavy drug use. The film depicts Dunst’s character through her emotional downfall as she battles between facing her intense emotions and the distortion of her reality. Staying true to Rodarte’s vibe, the film is set in California against the backdrop of the visually stimulating redwood forests (the sisters are LA-based and grew up in the forests of Santa Cruz) and all of the costumes are designed by the sisters.

Release Date: September 22nd

The ‘Cage Cage’ Puts You In A Cage, Forces You To Watch Nicolas Cage Movies

In an ideal world, none of us would have to work and we could just watch Nicolas Cage movies all day. Sadly, we don’t live in that world so we’ll just have to settle for the next best thing.

Enter The Cage Cage, “a VR simulation of what it’s like to be trapped in a cage and forced to watch Nic Cage movies.”

Once you’ve passed that main page, it looks something like this:

Incredible, no?

The Cage Cage is meant to be viewed with a VR headset, but even on desktop, it is a masterpiece. We’re extremely unsure how we ever lived in a world without this. 

This deliciously wonderful ode to Nicolas Cage was made by Mike Lacher, a writer and developer, and Chris Baker, who defines himself as a maker of “things on the internet that people like to talk about.” The co-collaborators are “big Cage fans” who “love watching clips of him at his cagiest.”

“When Chris suggested we make a cage where you’re surrounded by Nic Cage movies, we had no choice but to see it to completion. Watching one Nic Cage movie is great, but watching four simultaneously while locked in a cage is even better,” Lacher told The Huffington Post.

“I hacked it together in a few hours and just posted it today.”

The Cage Cage features clips from classic Cage flicks like “Adaptation,” “The Wicker Man,” “Face/Off,” “Wild At Heart,” and many others.

We didn’t spot any inclusion of “National Treasure” or “Moonstruck” ― clearly, two of Cage’s best films ― but perhaps if you stay in the cage long enough, either of those will appear.

(Though, if you’re like us, you have them on DVD and VHS so it doesn’t much matter anyway.)

Lacher and Baker hope that the use of virtual reality will “give the world a whole new appreciation of Nicolas Cage’s work.” 

We couldn’t hope for more from this gorgeous piece of art ourselves. The world could use a little more Nicolas Cage in it.

We asked Lacher and Baker what their favorite Nic Cage movies are ― a choice that is arguably harder than Sophie’s ― and Lacher said “Face/Off.”

“But if I had to pick one single Cage moment, it might be in Bangkok Dangerous when he’s eating the spicy soup and keeps talking about how spicy it is,” he said.

That is solid Cage, Lacher. Solid.

Twitter Trolls ‘Ghost In The Shell’ For Whitewashing By Using Movie’s Own Ad

Twitter users completely turned a “Ghost in the Shell” ad campaign on its head to make a majorly important point. 

The film released a meme-maker with the intention of promoting the film. But instead, people across the interwebs brilliantly used it to generate snarky memes to call out the film for its casting of Scarlett Johansson in an Asian role. The actress plays Major Motoko Kusanagi ― or “The Major” ― in “Ghost in the Shell,” a film adaptation of a Japanese manga. 

The “I Am Major” meme-maker asks users to complete the statement “I Am…” in a template, encouraging them to fill in the blank with what makes them “unique.” They’re also invited to upload their own photos. 

But that’s not how many snarky individuals used the tool. 

From mocking the actress’ lack of connection to Japanese culture, to pointing out different instances of Hollywood’s whitewashing controversies, Twitter made it known that they won’t be fans of the movie. 

“I am unable to say Motoko Kusanagi,” reads one meme, with the words across a photo of the actress’ face. 

Another that says “I am in love with white feminism,” accompanied by an image of the actress, seems to refer to Johansson’s recent interview with Marie Claire. In the interview, she defended the film’s casting, saying she’d “never presume to play another race of a person.” She also took the opportunity to applaud the anime franchise for featuring a female protagonist. 

The film, which will be released later this month, has been criticized for whitewashing ever since early 2015, when it was revealed that Johansson would occupy the lead role.

Big names in the Asian community, including actresses Constance Wu and Ming-Na Wen, spoke out against the film. And a petition from Care2, calling for the film to be recast, generated more than 104,000 signatures. 

The “Ghost In The Shell” controversy comes at a time when several other films have featured white actors in roles that many feel should’ve gone to Asians. Emma Stone received backlash for playing part-Asian character Allison Ng in the 2015 film “Aloha.” The next year, Tilda Swinton found herself under fire for taking the role of “The Ancient One,” a Tibetan sorcerer, in the Marvel Comics-based movie “Doctor Strange.” Swinton later solicited Margaret Cho’s opinion on the subject and, while doing so, decided to shift the conversation to feminism, downplaying race in the process. 

Actual Asians, however, have had a hard time being cast in Hollywood movies. They nabbed no lead roles and just 3.9 percent of speaking roles in 2015’s top films. Factoring in the recent years’ whitewashing controversies, it’s no wonder Twitter didn’t hold back with its trolling of “Ghost in the Shell.” 

Check out more of the witty memes below.

‘I’m Done’: Patrick Stewart Says He’s Retiring From X-Men Movies

The X-Men may have to find a new mutant to seek guidance from.

Patrick Stewart has announced that he is retiring from the “X-Men” movie franchise after 17 years portraying the sage mutant leader Professor Charles Francis Xavier ― a.k.a. “Professor X.”

The 76-year-old British actor shared his decision during a SiriusXM Town Hall discussion on his upcoming X-Men film “Logan.” The full discussion and the film are slated for release on March 3, Entertainment Weekly reported Friday.

Speaking beside his “Logan” costar Hugh Jackman and the film’s director and co-writer James Mangold, Stewart said he came to the decision after watching the latest installment about a week ago and finding himself moved to tears.

“I sat there I realized there will never be a better, a more perfect, a more sensitive, emotional, and beautiful way of saying au revoir to Charles Xavier than this movie,” he said.

Jackman, who has also confirmed that he is leaving the franchise after starring as Wolverine, was one of the first people he said he shared the news with.

“I told [Jackman] that same evening, ‘I’m done too. It’s all over,’” Stewart said.

Stewart has starred in six of the X-Men movies preceding “Logan.” These are “X-Men” (2000), “X-Men 2” (2003), “ X-Men: The Last Stand” (2006), “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” (2009), “The Wolverine” (2013), and “X-Men: Days of Future Past” (2014).

Riveted: The Science of Why Jokes Make Us Laugh, Movies Make Us Cry, and Religion Makes Us Feel One with the Universe


Why do some things pass under the radar of our attention, but other things capture our interest? Why do some religions catch on and others fade away? What makes a story, a movie, or a book riveting? Why do some people keep watching the news even though it makes them anxious?The past 20 years have seen a remarkable flourishing of scientific research into exactly these kinds of questions. Professor Jim Davies’ fascinating and highly accessible book, Riveted, reveals the evolutionary underpinnings of why we find things compelling, from art to religion and from sports to superstition. Compelling things fit our minds like keys in the ignition, turning us on and keeping us running, and yet we are often unaware of what makes these “keys” fit. What we like and don’t like is almost always determined by subconscious forces, and when we try to consciously predict our own preferences we’re often wrong. In one study of speed dating, people were asked what kinds of partners they found attractive. When the results came back, the participants’ answers before the exercise had no correlation with who they actually found attractive in person! We are beginning to understand just how much the brain makes our decisions for us: we are rewarded with a rush of pleasure when we detect patterns, as the brain thinks we’ve discovered something significant; the mind urges us to linger on the news channel or rubberneck an accident in case it might pick up important survival information; it even pushes us to pick up People magazine in order to find out about changes in the social structure. Drawing on work from philosophy, anthropology, religious studies, psychology, economics, computer science, and biology, Davies offers a comprehensive explanation to show that in spite of the differences between the many things that we find compelling, they have similar effects on our minds and brains.

Uncharted Writer Boasts of Movie’s ‘Monstrously Cool’ Script

Writer Joe Carnahan has completed his draft of the Uncharted movie—a script he calls “monstrously cool.”

“Done and Dusted,” Carnahan wrote alongside an image of the script on Instagram. “Now the REAL work begins. If there’s a more monstrously cool action script in Hollywood right now, I wanna read it, ‘cuz this thing is a BEAST.”

The Uncharted movie was first announced in 2009. After nearly 8 years of on-again, off-again development, Carnahan was brought on to write the script. A few months later, Stranger Things director Shawn Levy was tapped to helm the film.

This Theory Perfectly Explains Why ‘The Hobbit’ Movies Were So Bad

Look, some of us liked “The Hobbit” trilogy. They’re not the perfect movies, but it’s a perfect adventure. Oh, and there’s a dragon who’s a total baller.

Other people, however, didn’t really appreciate the films. In fact, they really hated them.

And that’s how frenemies are made.

The criticism has been that the movies were overly exaggerated, there was too much CGI and it didn’t need to be stretched into a trilogy. Now, a fan theory suggests the films were actually meant to be a little ridiculous and needlessly drawn out.

The Theory: “The Hobbit” films were bloated with CGI and long-winded because they represent Bilbo’s own exaggerated retellings of his adventure.

Redditor Questionbdp posed the idea as “internal justification” for why the movies were a “disappointment,” and it actually makes sense. The Redditor explains:


What Bilbo actually experienced during his adventure with the Dwarves was probably far less significant and monumental than the movies make it out to be, because the movies show how Bilbo retells his adventures, not how he actually lived them.

The theory goes on to say Bilbo probably felt bummed after he returned from his adventure to find all the other Hobbits didn’t care and were selling off all his stuff. (You nasty Hobbitses!) Because of this, he makes his story larger than life and “events which only filled a small book turned into three separate movies.”

Commenters called the theory “brilliant,” and one even joked, “Lol, Peter Jackson, is that you?”

Speaking of Jackson, even he says “The Hobbit” movies were meant to be a different tone than “Lord of the Rings,” but could this be the reason why?

In J. R. R. Tolkien‘s original stories, Bilbo authors his own memoir, There and Back Again, so it’s entirely possible that he embellished a bit. The dude was pretty good at making stuff up when explaining how he escaped the Goblin tunnels to his Dwarf bros, after all. And how else would you explain Legolas running up a crumbling tower?

Ugh … #SMH.

Jackson said he doesn’t have regrets when it comes to the films, so we’re thinking he either completely missed that Legolas scene, or perhaps there’s a bigger plan at work.

Please let there be a bigger plan at work.

This Theory Perfectly Explains Why ‘The Hobbit’ Movies Were So Bad

Look, some of us liked “The Hobbit” trilogy. They’re not the perfect movies, but it’s a perfect adventure. Oh, and there’s a dragon who’s a total baller.

Other people, however, didn’t really appreciate the films. In fact, they really hated them.

And that’s how frenemies are made.

She Makes Movies

Pioneering movie director’s Dorothy Arzner recent death reminds us that still today too few movies are directed or produced by women. It wasn’t until 2009 that the first Oscar for Best Director went to a woman! Match the woman with her accomplishment:

____ 1. Probably best known for her stunning Broadway production of The Lion King.
____ 2. In 2009, the first woman to receive an Academy Award for Best Director.
____ 3. An actress turned director and producer, her movie Awakenings was nominated for a Best Picture Oscar in 1991.
____ 4. The winner of two Oscars, she wrote more than 100 scripts.
____ 5. A pioneering director who co-founded her film company in 1949.

A. Frances Marion
B. Ida Lupino
C. Penny Marshall
D. Julie Taymor
E. Kathryn Bigelow

A screenwriter whose career started as a journalist and an artist, Frances Marion wrote more than 100 scripts. Befriending actress Mary Pickford, Marion directed her first film in 1921. Marion achieved greater success as a screenwriter than as a director, winning two Oscars — one for The Big House and one for The Champ. The latest remake of The Champ, based on her script, was in 1979 starring Jon Voight, Faye Dunaway, and Rich Schroder. Later, Marion taught screenwriting at the university level.

At a time when good roles for women actors were hard to come by and many actresses completed for the roles that were available, Ida Lupino decided that she would direct movies. Pioneering director Lupino co-founded a film company named Emerald Productions. In 1949, she finished directing a movie that she co-wrote, Not Wanted. After writing, directing and producing films in the 1950s, she worked in television, directing episodes in more than 100 shows including The Untouchables, Mission Impossible and The Fugitive.

Penny Marshall made a name for herself as Laverne in the television situation comedy Laverne and Shirley. Turning her hand to directing and producing in 1985, she became the first female director to have a film that grossed $ 100 million at the box office (Big). She then became the first female director with two movies that grossed over $ 100 million at the box office with A League of Her Own. Her film Awakenings was nominated for a Best Picture Oscar in 1991, but did not receive the award.

Probably best known for her Broadway production of The Lion King, Julie Taymor has directed feature films, directed Broadway plays, and developed puppets and masks for productions. The Lion King received eleven Tony Award nominations and won two awards — for Best Director and Costume Designer. Her films include Frida and Across the Universe.

The first woman to receive an Academy Award for Best Director, Kathryn Bigelow has directed short and long films. The 2009 Best Director award was for her work on The Hurt Locker which also won the Academy Award for Best Picture. Bigelow was inspired by her father, who liked to draw cartoons but did not pursue his dream of being a cartoonist. She did follow her dream, studying art, but then intentionally changing her focus to film – to be able to influence more people. Bigelow has worked in television as well as in film.

Learn about more she-roes and celebrate amazing women. These women who make movies are profiled in the book Her Story: A Timeline of the Women Who Changed America. We enjoy the fruits of their hard work and benefit from their significant contributions to our arts and culture.

A Brief (Pun Intended) History of Lawyers in Movies, Part II

2015-05-06-1430953144-9680560-verdict1

Lawyers in motion pictures have been portrayed as one of two extremes, devils or angels, almost since celluloid was invented. The first film dealing specifically with a law firm and attorneys, 1933’s Counsellor at Law, starring John Barrymore, portrayed its J.D.s as upstanding citizens, as did the early Perry Mason films of the same period. This quickly changed, however, with many attorneys portrayed as being capable of the same brand of skullduggery as their shifty clients. With that in mind, we bring you a list of the good, the bad and the ugly of lawyers in movies. Enjoy, and please refrain from suing us if you feel otherwise…

1. Devil’s Advocate (1997)
Keanu Reeves plays Kevin Lomax, a hot-shot young Florida lawyer who is all about climbing the ladder. When he gets an offer he can’t refuse from a high-powered New York firm, led by the legendary John Milton (Al Pacino). Soon Kevin’s wife (Charlize Theron) is plagued by demonic visions and he realizes he’s literally sold his soul to the Devil Himself. Pacino has one of his greatest, scenery-chewing roles this clever hybrid of Rosemary’s Baby and The Firm. Although his character’s name should be an immediate giveaway for the literate viewer, Pacino’s John Milton delivers one of the great speeches in movie history about the notion of righteousness in the post-modern world.

2. 12 Angry Men (1957)
Sidney Lumet’s classic film from Reginald Rose’s script boasts an amazing star turn by Henry Fonda as the voice of reason in a sequestered jury room full of men anxious to wrap things up and go home, even if it means sending a teenage boy, accusing of stabbing his father to death, to the electric chair. A dream cast of character stars to be (Jack Warden, Jack Klugman, Robert Webber, Lee J. Cobb, E.G. Marshall, John Fiedler, Edward Binns, Joseph Sweeney, George Voskovec, Ed Begley, Martin Balsam) provide electric support to the dramatic proceedings. Although there are no lawyers present on-screen, the opposing counsels are constantly hovering in the heated debate.

3. Chicago (2002)
Richard Gere follows up his turn as a slick lawyer in Primal Fear (1994) with an even more flamboyant performance as uber-mouthpiece Billy Flynn, who has made a specialty of getting murderesses off of Death Row, the more glamourous the gal, the better. When the double golden geese of Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly present themselves, Billy literally gives a song and dance for his girls that not only exonerates them in the eyes of the law, but makes them stars, as well. Gere’s performance and his beautifully-drawn character is the ultimate satirical slap in the face to officers of the court.

4. Presumed Innocent (1990)
Harrison Ford shines in one of his few morally ambiguous roles as Rusty Sabitch, a Deputy D.A. who finds himself a murder suspect when his former mistress (Greta Scacchi) is found bludgeoned to death. As Rusty scrambles to prove his innocence, the evidence against him mounts with alarming rapidity, making this both a cautionary tale and a frightening variation on Kafka’s The Trial. Based on Scott Turow’s best-selling novel, the film adapted by Oscar-winner Frank Pierson and director Alan J. Pakula, featuring fine support from Raul Julia, Bonnie Bedelia, Brian Dennehey, and John Spencer.

5. The Accused (1988)
Jodie Foster took home a Best Actress Oscar for her incendiary performance as a working class woman who is brutally gang-raped at a local tavern. When attorney Kelly McGillis takes the case, it becomes glaringly obvious how the legal system not only discriminates against victims of sex crimes, but against the wrong social class, as well. When McGillis decides to prosecute the men in the bar who didn’t participate in the crime itself, but cheered the perpetrators on, the film takes on uncharted territory, and becomes one of the greatest legal dramas ever made.

6. The Verdict (1982)
In a legendary career, this might contain Paul Newman’s finest performance. As Frank Galvin, a washed-up, alcoholic Boston attorney whose once promising career has collapsed into chasing ambulances, Newman is alternately riveting, repellent and heartbreaking. When a medical malpractice case comes Galvin’s way, the powers that be try to buy him and his clients off with a quick and easy settlement. Seeing a final chance at personal and professional redemption, Galvin takes the case to trial, facing off against a legendary fat cat attorney (the great James Mason), and a stack of odds that are decidedly against him. Jack Warden, Charlotte Rampling and Milo O’Shea are just a few of the fine actors offering excellent support in director Sidney Lumet’s masterpiece, penned by David Mamet from Barry Reed’s novel.

7. Primal Fear (1996)
A creative writing professor I had in college had a terrific analogy for stories about protagonists who think they’re in control during the duration of a story, only to have “a hammer come out of the sky and tap them on the head” in the end. This perfectly summarizes what happens to dapper, wealthy attorney Martin Vail (Richard Gere), Chicago’s most high-profile mouthpiece, in director Gregory Hoblit’s 1996 hit. When the Archbishop of the city is brutally murdered by a disturbed young man (Edward Norton, in his star-making debut) Martin eagerly takes on his defense, knowing he’ll have an open and shut case with an insanity plea. Oh Marty, you have no clue. Fine support from Laura Linney, John Mahoney, Alfre Woodard, Frances McDormand and Steven Bauer.

8. A Few Good Men (1992)
Writer Aaron Sorkin had his first bona fide hit with this Broadway smash, which he later adapted for director Rob Reiner to bring to the screen. Tom Cruise plays Daniel Kaffee, a navy JAG corps attorney who has never seen the inside of a courtroom. When he assigned the case of offending two Marines accused of killing one of their comrades, the young men claim they did it under orders from legendary marine Col. Nathan R. Jessup (Jack Nicholson, in one of his most iconic roles). One of the best courtroom dramas ever committed to film, Cruise’s character goes from being callow and indifferent to a full-blown crusader by the film’s now-legendary climax (“You can’t handle the truth!”). Fine support from Demi Moore, Kevin Bacon, Kiefer Sutherland and the late J.T. Walsh.

9. Anatomy of a Murder (1959)
The most controversial mainstream release of its era, Otto Preminger’s courtroom drama stars Jimmy Stewart as a small town lawyer who finds his defense for client Lt. Frederick Manion (Ben Gazzara) becoming increasingly complicated. Accused of murdering a local bartender who he claims raped and beat up his wife Laura (Lee Remick), Stewart soon finds out that Laura has a reputation for promiscuity and Lt. Manion a notoriously violent temper. Wendell Mayes’ screenplay, based on John Voelker’s novel, contained frank dialogue for the late ’50s, such as “bitch”, “contraceptive”, “panties”, “penetration”, “rape”, “slut” and “sperm.” In fact, Stewart’s real-life father was so appalled that his son had appeared in such filth, he took out a full-page ad in his local paper, urging people not to see it! While quite tame by today’s standards, the film still boasts fine performances by an expert cast, and Stewart’s masterful portrayal of a seemingly mild-mannered fellow whose determination won’t be swayed once he’s made up his mind.

10. Better Call Saul (2015)
Okay, so it’s a TV series, not a movie, but it’s a TV series that’s better than 98% of the mainstream releases that are currently filling the multiplexes, so here it joins this auspicious list. Bob Odenkirk is a revelation, reprising his role from the iconic Breaking Bad as shifty lawyer Saul Goodman, featured here in a prequel to BB, tracing Saul’s evolution from small-time Cicero, IL. con artist Jimmy McGill, to the kind of attorney whose name and likeness adorns matchbook covers and bus stop benches. As much a dissection (and indictment) of the American Dream as Breaking Bad was, with a character who is sometimes pathetic, often unintentionally comical, but utterly human in the end: an everyman for the 21st century who is more like most of us really are, as opposed to whom we’d like to be. Michael McKean is Odenkirk’s equal, playing his long-suffering, successful older brother, a legendary Albuquerque lawyer who suffers from a host of psychological maladies, as is veteran actor Jonathan Banks, as ex-cop turned dirty tricks-for-hire covert op Mike Ehrmantraut.

A Brief (pun intended) History of Lawyers in Movies

Lawyers in motion pictures have been portrayed as one of two extremes, devils or angels, almost since celluloid was invented. The first film dealing specifically with alaw firm and attorneys, 1933’s Counsellor at Law, starring John Barrymore, portrayed its J.D.s as upstanding citizens, as did the early Perry Mason films of the same period. This quickly changed, however, with many attorneys portrayed as being capable of the same brand of skullduggery as their shifty clients. With that in mind, we bring you a list of the good, the bad and the ugly of lawyers in movies.

1. To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)

Gregory Peck’s Atticus Finch became the boilerplate for the Noble Movie Lawyer in this iconic, 1962 adaptation of Harper Lee’s award-winning novel. Atticus Finch, a small town attorney in the Depression-era South, must defend a black man (Brock Peters) falsely accused of raping a white woman, causing the already-divided town’s racial tensions to boil over. Through it all, Atticus remains stoic, fair and principled, witnessed through the eyes of his precocious daughter, Scout (Mary Badham). Robert Mulligan’s film won three Academy Awards, including a Best Actor statuette for Peck, and remains a timeless classic.

2. Liar, Liar (1997)

Rubber-faced comic Jim Carrey brought his unique brand of comic genius to this riotous 1997 comedy with Carrey delivering one of his best turns as a shifty, opportunistic and very successful lawyer whose moral ambiguity would put most hardened criminals to shame. But when his young son makes a birthday wish that his father can’t tell a lie for 24 hours, his way of life comes crashing down around him. Carrey’s character literally travels the entire arc of bad guy to good guy lawyer during his revelatory rollercoaster ride, although his transformation at the end left this viewer wishing for a bit more of the bad after the final fade out, as that incarnation was a great deal more fun.

3. My Cousin Vinny (1992)

After winning the 1990 Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his turn as psychotic hood Tommy De Vito in Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas, Joe Pesci decided a change of pace was in order. His masterful comic turn as a Brooklyn con man who tries to pass himself off as an attorney ended up becoming one of Pesci’s most iconic turns. While trying to get his cousin (Ralph Macchio) and the cousin’s buddy off of a trumped up murder charge in the Deep South, Vinny and his gal pal Mona Lisa Vito (Oscar-winner Marisa Tomei) engage in some of the most pronounced culture clash and creative legal posturing in the history of film. Fred Gwynne is a hoot as the unctuous, old school presiding judge: “What is a ‘yute’?”

4. Michael Clayton (2007)

George Clooney gives one of his most compelling performances in writer-director Dan Gilroy’s drama about a “fixer” (Clooney) in a high-powered law firm who finds himself in a moral and professional quandary when a fellow attorney (Tom Wilkinson) in the firm has a breakdown while representing a chemical company that he knows is guilty in a multi-billion dollar class action lawsuit. As his carefully-manicured world starts figuratively (and literally) exploding around him, Clayton finds himself at a crossroads between life and death. Tilda Swinton took home an Oscar for her stunning turn as an amoral corporate counsel.

5. The Firm (1993)

Director Sydney Pollack and screenwriters Robert Towne, David Rayfiel and David Rabe did this crackerjack adaptation of John Grisham’s best-selling novel about neophyte Harvard Law grad Mitch McDeere (Tom Cruise) who is made an offer he can’t refuse by a white-shoe Memphis law firm, only to find out that he’s unwittingly sold his soul to the mob. Gene Hackman is memorable as a burned-out lawyer at the firm who represents what Mitch (and any lawyer who loses his moral compass) could become if he doesn’t wake up and smell the corruption.

6. The Verdict (1982)

In a legendary career, this might contain Paul Newman’s finest performance. As Frank Galvin, a washed-up, alcoholic Boston attorney whose once promising career has collapsed into chasing ambulances, Newman is alternately riveting, repellent and heartbreaking. When a medical malpractice case comes Galvin’s way, the powers that be try to buy him and his clients off with a quick and easy settlement. Seeing a final chance at personal and professional redemption, Galvin takes the case to trial, facing off against a legendary fat cat attorney (the great James Mason), and a stack of odds that are decidedly against him. Jack Warden, Charlotte Rampling and Milo O’Shea are just a few of the fine actors offering excellent support in director Sidney Lumet’s masterpiece, penned by David Mamet from Barry Reed’s novel.

7. Primal Fear (1996)

How Cell Phones Would Have Ruined Most of Our Favorite Movies

If you’re a pop culture maven, most likely it can be agreed that the modern cell phone can be traced back to two classic TV series of the 1960s: Star Trek and Get Smart. Captain James Tiberius Kirk and his USS Enterprise crew were always armed with their “communicators” when traveling abroad on a distant planet. They were palm-sized devices with covers the flipped open, providing instant connection with the orbiting space ship. This design was aped, no doubt, by former Trekkies for the classic “flip phone” design that ruled the high-tech roost in the late 90s and early millennium.

Secret Agent 86 Maxwell Smart had his shoe phone, surely the most creative (and ridiculous) example of technology ever invented by someone who was most likely thought to be a creative and scientific genius. However, it did enable Max to get out of one sticky situation after another. After all, how many bad guys confiscate a spy’s shoes after he’s been captured? With these questions in mind, we’ll take a look at a handful of classic movies, and how they literally couldn’t have played out, if they had been set in a cell phone-ruled universe.

The Wizard of Oz (1939)
Spirited teen Dorothy Gale runs head-on into a 19th century Kansas tornado in search of her terrier, Toto, who’s run off. Now, if Oz had taken place in 21st century Kansas, not only would Dorothy and all her relatives, farm hands and neighbors have smart phones stuck into that big front pocket of their overalls, Toto would have been stuck with a microchip by the local vet when he was just a pup, enabling Dorothy to track him via Google and changing her desperate, fumbling search for him through the cornfields into an easy search that would have taken all of ninety seconds. Cut to Dorothy: “Bad dog!” Dorothy snatches up said dog, scrambles into the storm cellar with time to spare, grabbing a piping hot biscuit for herself from Auntie Em’s fresh batch in the kitchen, and a stew bone for Toto. No conk on the head. No hallucinating about Munchkins, poppy fields and animated scarecrows. And no drug problem for the college-bound Dorothy a few years later because, let’s face it: once you’ve been to Oz, you’d wanna keep going back. And back. And back…

Casablanca (1942)
Former lovers Ilsa and Rick are reunited in Nazi-occupied North Africa. There is still major chemistry between the two, but Ilsa’s heart belongs to her husband, noble Hungarian freedom fighter Victor Laszlo. If Ilsa and Rick had cell phones, their first meeting never would have taken place. Think about it: a chick dumps your ass in Paris, the most romantic city on Earth, in the middle of a frickin’ rainstorm. What’s the first thing you do? You defriend her sorry excuse for a girlfriend on Facebook and get all your real buds to do the same! The minute Ilsa and Victor arrived at Rick’s Café Americana, and of course “checked-in” on Facebook, that one semi-catty female “pal” that stayed in touch with both Rick and Ilsa would inform Rick post-haste that Ilsa was in his establishment. Rick would then text Captain Louis Renault, dropping dime on the fact that the Nazi-wanted Laszlo was in his joint. Louis and his boys would arrest the hot couple on the spot, without Rick ever having to deal with them directly. End of story, with revenge served as the coldest of cold dishes on Rick’s part. Final fade out has Rick telling Sam to tinkle the ivories with the J. Giles Band classic “Love Stinks” as Rick dances with a beautiful Casablancan gal.

Vertigo (1958)
Alfred Hitchcock’s classic, cited by the British Film Institute as the greatest film ever made, could have played out much the same for its first half, until Kim Novak’s Madeline Elster character is “reborn” as Judy Barton, discovered by James Stewart’s ex-cop Scottie Ferguson on the streets of San Francisco. In the world of cell phones and the Internet, Scottie would have become a shut-in after the trauma of losing Madeline, spending all his time surfing dating and hook-up sites on the web and his phone. While cruising chicks on Tinder one lonely night, Scottie would have discovered Madeline/Judy’s profile, as the forlorn girl is now looking for love herself. Scottie quickly puts the pieces together via Photoshop, comparing and contrasting picks of Madeline and Judy under extreme magnification, realizing they’re one and the same. After setting up a Coffee Bean date with “Judy” using a fake Tinder profile picture, Scottie spikes her chai latte with drugged almond milk, taking her to the Golden Gate Bridge, making her confess all as she comes to. As the cops drag Judy off, Scottie throws his cell phone into the San Francisco Bay, deciding to move up to an Oregon commune where all technology is forbidden.

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
“E.T. phone home!” Well, here’s the thing: if we’d had cellphones in 1982, what do you think an uber-advanced alien would’ve had at that point? He would’ve phoned home. As in post-haste. As in, “Dude, what h-e-double hockey sticks are you guys thinking?! You left me stranded!” The captain of E.T.’s ship, scared shitless that his commanding officer, who happens to be E.T.’s uncle, will find out about this, uses a top secret do-hickey to travel back in time to the point where E.T. wandered off in the first place, grabbing him and dragging him onto the ship, chastising his subordinate for being “a space cadet.” Meanwhile, Elliott, Gertie and the nice suburban family have a normal suburban life, and adopt a Golden Retriever puppy a few months later. They name him Fernando, which translates to “brave traveler,” and got the idea from a new naming app Gertie downloaded onto her iPhone 6.

One Of These 21 Movies Will Probably Win Best Picture At The 2015 Oscars

best picture

Welcome to For Your Consideration, HuffPost Entertainment’s breakdown of all things Oscar. Between now and Feb. 22, 2015, entertainment managing editor Christopher Rosen and entertainment editor Matthew Jacobs will pore over awards season and discuss which films will make the most noise at the 87th annual Academy Awards.

The finish line is here. We are two weeks away from the Oscar nominations, which means studios need to put any last-minute campaigning into overdrive. With voting having already opened (see our dream ballots here), it stands to reason that the state of the race has more or less been determined. Still, we hope to see plenty of surprises when the nominations arive on Jan. 15, especially in the Best Picture field, where the number of nominees remains a question mark. (Since a 2011 rule change, the Academy Awards can nominate anywhere between five and 10 films for Best Picture.) There’s arguably still no clear front-runner, but five movies (“Selma,” “Boyhood,” “The Imitation Game,” “Birdman” and “The Theory of Everything”) seem like guarantees, with ample contenders trying to edge their way into the remaining slots. Here are the 21 movies competing in the marathon:

Mr. Turner: Movies Butchering History

This is the scene: The housekeeper, in her fifties or sixties, is fully clothed in a long dark Victorian dress and bonnet. She has her back to the camera, perhaps dusting. In strides a heavy, hulk of a man: a coarse, fleshy face, his straw-like hair askew.

He scowls at the woman, grunts something undecipherable, rams himself against her, pinning her to the wall, lifting her skirts as he does so. He thrusts again. Mutely, she submits to the brutish attack. He grunts and thrusts again. Finally, satiated, he stalks away. Not a word has been uttered.

She stares after him, without resentment, shock or horror–her homely, lined features etched with resignation. Obviously, this was not the first time Mr.Turner had had humped her; nor would it be the last.

Mr. Turner, directed by Mike Leigh, is by no means a coherent biography, but a gorgeous riveting film that presents brief, often unconnected excerpts from the latter years of the great British painter William Turner. In a way, Leigh’s lush, gauzy, cinematographic techniques, might be compared to the brilliant, infused style that Turner himself developed to create his shimmering watercolor landscapes.

The problem is I don’t know how much of the film to trust.

One of the starkest scenes, the scene that must stick in the mind of the majority of the viewers, is the one described above — where Mr. Turner — the genius in rendering light long before the French impressionists ever came on the scene — brutally attacks and has his way with his housekeeper.

In some way, that shocking scene will forever change the way those who see the film will perceive the painter. All well and good you may say. Indeed, it’s to the credit of Mike Leigh that he has given us the great Turner with all his warts and blemishes.

Except for the fact that the scene may never have happened. That’s according to Mike Leigh himself.

In a packed question and answer session following a screening of the film in at the Curzon Cinema in London, Leigh elaborated on the great amount of time and effort he and his staff had put into researching Turner’s life.

But when asked for the factual basis for Turner’s sexual attacks on his housekeeper, Leigh’s answer was along these lines: “Well, we knew that she had been living with him as his housekeeper for thirty or forty years, and.. it just felt right.” There was, Leigh admitted, no hard evidence, that Turner had regularly forced himself on the woman.

To Leigh, that seems to make no difference.

As much as I admire the talent of Mike Leigh, I can’t believe the arrogance of that reply.

The film is presented as “An exploration of the last quarter century of the great, if eccentric, British painter J.M.W. Turner’s life.” There is no indication anywhere that portions are made up, or based on what “felt right” to the director.

Yet, for millions of people who see the film, that is how they will remember Mr. Turner.

Another dramatic scene in the film may never have happened. At one point, Turner has himself lashed to the tall mast of a sailing ship in the midst of a ferocious gale, so he can directly experience a treacherous storm at sea. According to the Tate Britain–which houses a huge collection of Turner’s art — it’s most unlikely that Turner ever attempted that deed.

So, now I’m left with the question about the entire film—what was real and what was invented, because it felt right?

The people who turned out the film try to have it both ways: giving the very clear impression that it is based on fact–otherwise why would anyone be interested? While at the same time adding in pivotal scenes that aren’t. Are we to believe that they don’t have the box office as well as history in mind?

One might wonder how Mike Leigh would respond to some future biographer taking the same liberties with Leigh’s life story as Leigh did with Turner’s.

Mr. Turner is only the latest in a long list of films supposedly based “in fact” “in reality”, “on a real event, or “a true story. Driven by a mix of arrogance and cynicism, the people who makes those films count on the ignorance of the audience to make their fortunes by butchering history.

One such thriller, Argo, revealed how several Americans from the U.S. embassy in Tehran were whisked out of Iran at the height of the hostage crisis, by an incredibly brave and resourceful CIA agent. Except the real hero in the true story was not the CIA agent, but the Canadian ambassador to Iran, who sheltered those Americans and came up with the way to get them out.

But who’s going to pay good money to see a movie about a Canadian diplomat? The cliff-hanging conclusion of the film — without which the picture would never have worked — was also totally invented.

Much more egregious, as far as public policy goes, was Zero Dark Thirty, supposedly a totally factual account of how the U.S. tracked down and finally zapped Osama Bin Laden. One stark, scene showing a prisoner being water-boarded, made it clear that it was that torture that led to the biggest breakthrough in the chase: the CIA discovering the identity of the trusted courier used by Bin Laden, who ultimately led them to Bin Laden himself. According to several sources, including the latest Senate Committee report, torture had nothing to do with that breakthrough.

But try to make that point to Dick “torture works” Cheney or anyone of the hundreds of millions of people who have seen the film.

If you queried the people responsible for that film, they’d probably shrug and say something like, “it just felt right.”

‘Frozen’ Has Made More Money This Year Than All But 4 Movies

As noted via a press release from Walt Disney Studios, “Frozen” has earned $ 733 million of its $ 1.27 billion lifetime gross during this calendar year. That means the animated blockbuster, which was released on Nov. 27, 2013, has made more money in 2014 around the world than all but four movies:

1. “Transformers: Age of Extinction” ($ 1.087 billion)

2. “Guardians of the Galaxy” ($ 770.1 million)

3. “Maleficent” ($ 757.7 million)

4. “X-Men: Days of Future Past” ($ 746 million)

Counting “Frozen,” three of the five biggest 2014 films have been released by Disney. Without “Frozen” included, Disney still holds that title: “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” ranks fifth on the list of 2014 releases with $ 714.1 million in ticket sales. Overall, Disney has surpassed $ 4 billion in total worldwide box office receipts for the second year in a row, the only two times that number has been reached in the studio’s history.

Watch 52 Movies Literally Star In This Horror Movie Crossover

We’ve seen our fair share of crossover productions in cinema before, from the “Alien vs. Predator” franchise to “Marvel’s The Avengers” to just about anything featuring Jay and Silent Bob. But it isn’t very common that 52 movies come together in one.

The folks at Portal Party added the fifth episode to their “Movies Starring Movies” series, crafting a horror short just in time for Halloween. Starring literal movies (you’ll see), we watch as “The Good Girl” makes its way through a creepy forest and castle, filled with “The Wolfman,” “The Evil Dead” and “Bats,” all while “One Good Cop” does its best to combat these dreadful DVDs.

Adam Sandler To Make 4 New Movies For Netflix

Netflix has taken another huge step into originally content, signing comic/actor Adam Sandler to a four-movie deal that could see the first release as early as next year.

““People love Adam’’s films on Netflix and often watch them again and again,” Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement released online. “His appeal spans across viewers of all ages — everybody has a favorite movie, everyone has a favorite line — not just in the U.S. but all over the world.”

Sandler joked on Twitter and Instagram that he was trying to sign up for Netflix, and signed the four-picture deal instead:

““When these fine people came to me with an offer to make four movies for them, I immediately said ‘yes’ for one reason and one reason only…,” Sandler said in a statement released by the company. “Netflix rhymes with Wet Chicks. Let the streaming begin!!!!””

Variety reports that Sandler’s Happy Madison productions will develop the films with Netflix, and that the first could start streaming in 2015.

Earlier this week, Netflix announced its first original film, “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend.” That movie is set for release on both Netflix and in select IMAX theaters on Aug. 28, 2015.

“This Is Where I Leave You” (Sept. 19)

First up is this family comedy featuring one of the strongest casts of the season. Jane Fonda, Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Connie Britton, and Adam Driver all star in this movie about dysfunctional relationships. Following the death of their father, Fey and her siblings — as well as their significant others — are forced to sit shiva (a week-long Jewish mourning period) by their famous therapist mother, played by Fonda, in this adaptation of Jonathan Tropper’s best-selling novel. This film should prove interesting if for no other reason than the fact Fey will play a woman who doesn’t work — a stretch for the “30 Rock” star.

“Gone Girl” (Oct. 3)

This hotly anticipated thriller is based on the best-selling novel by Gillian Flynn, which many of you probably read in book club. Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike star as Nick and Amy, the seemingly happy couple that actually harbors a lot of secrets. Affleck’s character becomes the target of an investigation after his famous wife suddenly disappears. If that doesn’t entice you, Neil Patrick Harris also has been cast as Amy’s obsessive ex-boyfriend. With only weeks to go until its release, speculation is swirling as to how the end of the movie might differ from the end of the book (as it reportedly does).

“Fury” (Oct. 17)

After the disappointing movie “The Monuments Men” earlier this year, we’re due for a really good, gritty World War II film. We’re hoping “Fury” might be it. Starring Brad Pitt, the movie takes place during the final months of the war, as the Allies make a final push in Europe. Pitt plays battle-hardened U.S. army sergeant Wardaddy, who leads a five-member crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines in Germany. The film is from writer-director David Ayer, who also wrote and directed the Oscar-winning “Training Day.” Word has it that “Fury” is supposed to offer a disturbingly authentic portrayal of the suffering endured by the Allied troops who entered Germany.

“Birdman” (Limited release Oct. 17)

After its debut at the Venice Film Festival, critics everywhere were praising the performance by Michael Keaton — who played Batman for Tim Burton and who stars in “Birdman” as a washed-up superhero star trying to make a comeback on Broadway. Just a few days before opening night, he suffers a meltdown as he seeks to regain his former glory. Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s dark comedy also stars Emma Stone and Edward Norton.

“Exodus: Gods and Kings” (Dec. 12)

This film has already generated a lot of heat, even months before its release. That’s because director Ridley Scott cast white actors such as Christian Bale, Sigourney Weaver and Aaron Paul as Egyptians in the Biblical epic, while non-white members were assigned the roles of slaves and other lower-class members of society. In many ways, this appears to be Scott’s biggest project ever. And yet Scott, who turns 77 later this year, has told reporters that the film is at heart a brother vs. brother story, pitting Bale’s Moses against his adopted sibling, the Egyptian pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton).

“Unbroken” (Dec. 25)

Angelina Jolie will once again step behind the camera — she made her directorial debut with 2011’s “In The Land Of Blood And Honey” — to bring the story of Olympic athlete Louis Zamperini to life. Zamperini, also an Air Force captain who survived a plane crash, spent 47 days adrift at sea before being taken prisoner by the Japanese for more than two years in the 1940s. The World War II drama is based on Laura Hillenbrand’s non-fiction book of the same name. Hillenbrand is a great storyteller, having also written “Seabiscuit,” adapted into a 2003 film starring Tobey Maguire.

ReThink Review: Life Itself — On Roger Ebert and Why I Review Movies

For most movie critics living today, Pulitzer Prize-winning critic Roger Ebert is their patron saint. While I rarely read his reviews, I know that he’s influenced me more than I even know, starting from when I was a little kid watching At the Movies with Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert, which I still think is the perfect format for a movie review show and probably contributed to me wanting to be a critic in the first place. The new documentary Life Itself traces Ebert’s life and extraordinary career while also chronicling the final four months of his life before he died after a long battle with cancer which took his ability to speak but supercharged his compulsion to write. Watch the trailer for Life Itself below.

Based on Ebert’s book of the same name, Life Itself traces Ebert’s career as a born writer who eventually became a reporter at the Chicago Sun-Times where, at the age of 25, he was made their full-time movie critic (then an unglamorous job) when the previous critic quit. But Ebert’s talent and intelligence quickly elevated the reviews, eventually earning him a Pulitzer, to the point that someone got the then-novel idea of starting a movie review TV show pairing Ebert with Chicago Tribune critic and rival Gene Siskel.

It’s this part of the film, detailing the evolution of the show and Ebert and Siskel’s relationship, that I found the most fascinating and fun since footage and interviews (including the first-ever interview with Siskel’s widow Marlene) reveal that the enmity and differences between Siskel and Ebert went even deeper than they appeared on a show famous for their testy exchanges. The two were an odd couple in every way, but their dynamic led to them becoming the most famous and powerful film critics in history and eventually the closest of friends — a journey that could make a great film on its own. And filmmakers, several of whom are interviewed, recognized Ebert not as a scourge or scold, but a lover of film who only wanted them to do their best work.

Throughout, Life Itself returns to 2013 as Ebert continues his work and convalesces from an injury, only to learn that his cancer has spread, giving him only months to live. As the end approaches, we’re given an intimate look at his relationships with Ebert’s beloved wife Chaz, her family, and the meaning they brought to his life.

Life Itself is directed by Hoop Dreams director Steve James, who attributes the success of his film to Siskel and Ebert’s early and repeated support. But Life Itself — at nearly two hours — is not a puff piece, examining both the celebrated and unflattering aspects of Ebert’s personality, from his intelligence and writing skills which were obvious at an early age to his reputation for being an arrogant, sometimes mean attention hog. It’s a terrific film about the man, loving movies, cancer, and the role of honest criticism that you don’t need to be a critic to enjoy, though it inevitably leads this critic to think about why I do what I do.

I don’t think of myself as a disciple of Ebert, but his influence on me is undeniable. When I was still a little kid, Ebert (I preferred him to Siskel) showed me that movies should be enjoyed in context for what they are, not in comparison to an alleged golden age or an idea of what movies are supposed to be, and that movies could not only be art, but art that could be enjoyed and understood by everyone — provided it was done well. He was intellectual yet not condescending, part of the populist streak that ran through all his work — something that I relate to and probably unconsciously emulate.

I see my reviews as not being about me knowing more about movies than you or telling you how to think, but simply as an attempt to explain clearly why I feel the way I do about a movie while being honest about my biases and shortcomings, which is why I never apologize for movies I haven’t seen. After all, I’m not a movie expert or someone trying to be what I think a critic is supposed to be, but simply a guy who loves movies and loves writing about them.

But above all else, I share a belief that Ebert states early in Life Itself: that “movies are like a machine that generates empathy.” Movies are the most powerful and accessible storytelling device that humans have created, possessing a unique power to educate and enlighten, whether it’s through presenting information, letting you into the lives of people different from you, or by putting a character you relate to in a situation you’ve shared or maybe never experienced. By doing this, movies can challenge your beliefs and preconceptions, make you feel less alone, or at least provide viewers with a shared experience that can spark a conversation based on each individual’s unique interpretation of it. And it’s only through empathy and discussion that we’ll be able to put aside our differences, emphasize what connects us, and make the world a better place.

These might be lofty ideas for a guy who runs his mouth about movies. But Roger Ebert showed that talking about movies can be a pretty wonderful thing. And if you don’t believe me, Life Itself will almost definitely change your mind.

How Movies And TV Shows Are Changing The Way You Think About Love

The movies and TV shows watched by millions aren’t just entertaining; a new study says they’re affecting how people view romance and changing how they behave in relationships.

Researchers from The University of Michigan studied 625 college students (392 of whom were female) to determine if movies and TV shows were influencing their love lives.

Participants were given a list of 93 romantic films, such as “500 Days of Summer,” “Crazy Stupid Love,” and “In Time” and asked how many they had seen.

Next, they were given a list of 17 sitcoms including “How I Met Your Mother” and “Big Bang Theory” and were asked how many they watch and how often. Lastly, they were asked if and how often they watch marriage-themed reality shows like “The Bachelor” and “Millionaire Matchmaker.”

Researchers then analyzed the students’ ideas about love and also gauged whether or not participants believed that TV portrayed real life or saw it as total fantasy.

At the end of the study, three conclusions emerged:

  • More exposure to romantic movies led to a greater tendency to believe “love finds a way” and can overcome all obstacles.
  • More exposure to marriage-themed reality shows led participants to believe in “love at first sight” and that true love will be nearly perfect (what researchers call “idealization”).
  • On the other hand, watching TV sitcoms led to a negative view of romance and very little endorsement for concepts like “love finds a way,” “love at first sight,” “idealization” and the “one and only”.

Thus, the researchers suggest that the behaviors shown in each entertainment genre are actually being imprinted into our views of romance. For example, watching lavish dates on “The Bachelor” leads viewers to idealize love, while watching a couple bicker on a sitcom leads to a more negative impression of marriage.

So what does this mean for your own love life?

“Previous research suggests that beliefs about relationships can have implications for relationship satisfaction and longevity,” study author Julia Lippman wrote in an email to The Huffington Post.

Indeed, past studies have illustrated that people who can be classified as romantic appear to have more successful romantic relationships: they report high levels of love for a current partner, higher levels of relationship satisfaction, greater commitment, and a decreased tendency to engage in extramarital sex.

However, as Lippman points out, while certain romantic ideals can lead to stronger relationships, they can have negative consequences as well.

“Seeing your partner through rose-colored glasses is associated with higher levels of relationship satisfaction, but it is easy to see how seeing a partner who is bad news through rose-colored glasses (say, someone who is abusive) could have negative implications,” such as staying in a bad relationship for too long. More research is needed to explore that topic further.

The findings were recently published in the journal Psychology of Popular Media Culture.

Amazon, Warner Bros. Fight Results In Delays Of Pre-Orders For Some Movies

Everything is NOT awesome between Amazon and Warner Bros. The online retailer has pulled all pre-orders for next week’s DVD and Blu-Ray releases of “The Lego Movie.”

The New York Times reports that Amazon and Warner are locked in a contract battle that’s also seen pre-order delays for other upcoming Warner films, including “300: Rise of an Empire,” “Winter’s Tale” and “Transcendence.”

An Amazon spokesperson reached by the Times would not comment on the business dispute, and Warner Bros. spokesman Jim Noonan told Reuters that his company’s “policy is to not comment on contract points or any proprietary issues involving our partners.”

Fans of Warner Bros. movies aren’t the only ones affected by the dispute.

VizMedia, which produces Japanese animated DVDs such as the “Bleach” and “Naruto” series that are distributed by Warner Bros., has noticed customers posting complaints on Facebook about their inability to pre-order upcoming titles from Amazon.

“Our products are distributed by Warner Brothers, and currently they’re in contract negotiations with Amazon. Pre-orders are disabled while that goes on, but we’re hoping it will be resolved soon,” VizMedia stated on May 29.

Other movie fans have taken to Amazon’s forums to vent.

“I guess I can thank Amazon for steering me back towards brick and mortar stores,” a user named John A. wrote while complaining about the inability to pre-order “The Lego Movie.”

Amazon is also currently fighting with the Hachette publishing company, pulling pre-orders for some books and delaying shipments for others. At one point, Amazon suggested that customers who want those titles shop elsewhere.

Although that dispute remains unresolved, Amazon began restocking some Hachette titles last week.

“Lego Movie,” “300: Rise of an Empire” and “Winter’s Tale” were released online ahead of the DVD and Blu-Ray, and as of this writing, the streaming versions remain available via Amazon Instant Video.

Kristen Stewart’s ‘Camp X-Ray’ And Three Other Movies From The First 24 Hours Of Sundance

The first 24 hours of the Sundance Film Festival are now complete. The weather in Park City, Utah has been surprisingly pleasant (which I am sure will change drastically because of the sentence I just wrote). Regardless, as in years past, I’ll be providing a daily synopsis of all of the movies that I’ve seen at the festival.

This first installment includes the current talk of the festival so far, “Whiplash,” the surprise hit starring Miles Teller; Kristen Stewart’s Guantanamo Bay drama, “Camp X-Ray”; and Aaron Paul’s first film post-“Breaking Bad,” “Hellion.”

“Whiplash”

whiplash

Sundance isn’t exactly known for showing, let’s say, their better films on the first night of the festival. I think this may be the reason that not many people saw “Whiplash” coming. Plus, the synopsis about a college student, Andrew (Miles Teller), trying out for his school’s jazz band doesn’t sound, on the surface, like something oozing with excitement. Boy, were those assumptions wrong. The key here is that his music professor, Terence Fletcher (J.K. Simmons), isn’t the “tough love, but has a heart of gold” type of guy. For lack of a better term, he’s an asshole. He casually drops homophobic slurs while berating his students and he’s not afraid of physical abuse. As an audience, we hate this guy. But, we don’t doubt Fetcher’s talent and Fletcher doesn’t doubt Andrew’s talent — even though these two despise each other. Which, for the viewer, creates an electric relationship to observe. (And one of the best drum solos I’ve ever seen on screen.)

“Camp X-Ray”

Even though it doesn’t completely work, this was a good career choice for Kristen Stewart. And she’s fine as Amy Cole, a private stationed at Guantanamo Bay whose duty it is to keep the detainees – never “prisoners” – alive. There’s certainly an interesting message in this film concerning the ethics of Guantanamo Bay, but, as a movie, there’s a lot of mundane scenes of soldiers peering into cell windows. It’s a movie about people in a remote prison who we know aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, which limits where the story can really go. (Though, it does flirt with a borderline sexual assault at an off-duty party. This does not make the movie any better.) There’s a level of appreciation here that Stewart tried something completely different, but the movie itself doesn’t have any room to breathe.

“Hellion”

hellion

Boy, it’s nice to watch Aaron Paul play someone who is not Jesse Pinkman. And it’s kind of obvious on-screen that Paul is himself relishing this opportunity. (Note: I spoke to Paul after the premiere for an interview that will also publish this weekend.) Paul plays Hollis, a widower alcoholic trying to raise his two young sons, the older of which, Jacob (Josh Wiggins) is a hellion and seems to find himself in trouble with the law on a regular basis. The film takes a really odd narrative choice in the final act, but that doesn’t overshadow the great performances by both Paul and newcomer Josh Wiggins.

“A Most Wanted Man”

a most wanted man

From director Anton Corbijn — the man who brought you “The American” (a movie that most people don’t like very much) – comes another slow burn, “A Most Wanted Man.” Set in Hamburg, Germany — a hotbed of sorts for terrorist activities — we follow German spy Gunther Bachman (Philip Seymour Hoffman), as he attempts to locate a suspected terrorist, while trying to prevent his own government and the American government from overeacting. Look, the story here is interesting, but execution is dull. I actually enjoyed the slow-paced “The American,” because the tone was slow. It felt like the movie was supposed to take its time. Here, there’s so much going on and so many interesting characters, I was on the edge of my seat for the first half of the movie waiting for something to happen – because it feels like something should happen. Then I just eventually gave up. Yet, I still found the movie strangely compelling. Look, no one ever said that the spy game was exciting.
