    Homophobe Much? What’s With All The Effeminate, Fey (And Often Blonde) Villains In Hollywood?

    Effeminate, campy, queenish villains in Hollywood aren't exactly a new thing. Examples go as far back as say, Claude Rains' bad guy in "The Adventures of Robin Hood” (1938), Peter Lorre as the delicate Mr. Cairo in “The Maltese Falcon,” (his business cards are gardenia-scented for crying out loud), ...

    5 Things You Might Not Know About 'L.A. Confidential'

    It's safe to say that "L.A. Confidential" wasn't greeted with especially high expectations in the run up to its release. James Ellroy's 1990 book, the third of his "L.A. Quartet" (preceded by "The Black Dahlia" and "The Big Nowhere," and completed by "White Jazz") was a favorite among crime fans, bu...

    Guy Pearce Says His 'Iron Man 3' Role Is "Cameo Stuff"

    Guy Pearce is a man of many faces. This year alone he went from being a space jock hero in "Lockout," to a sneering effeminate baddie in "Lawless" in two wholly different performances. That the actor is talented and versatile, you already know, and his choices tend to be both int...

    Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus': The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

    Well, "Prometheus" is in theaters. And if nothing else, it's been causing more furious debate -- in multiplex lobbies, in bars, online -- than most movies in recent memory. And The Playlist head office has been a warzone, with some loving the film, some loathing it, and some (like our review) fallin...

    Over thirty years after the 'space jockey' first appeared in "Alien," and after a couple of months of speculation and rumor, Ridley Scott's "Prometheus," his return to sci-fi for the first time since "Blade Runner", and his continuation/prequel/spin-off/whatever to his 1979 space horror classic, fin...
