    Is Banksy Campaigning For (Or Against) The Oscars? UPDATED

    Wily Brit street artist and documentary filmmaker Banksy is in Los Angeles, grabbing attention for himself as only Banksy can. That doesn't mean that he does public appearances, or in-person interviews (here's a good email exchange), or shows up at the Academy luncheon. No, he's putting up art, all ...

    Dream 2011 Oscar Presenters (Plus Fantasy Actor's Tribute Guests If There So Be Some)

    The Oscar presenter list so far is classy but pretty darn boring. They've only announced like 10 names, but all of them seem like they've presented at every Oscars since the 1990s. So here's a couple of specific suggestions - some of which are actually serious - that could spice things up a bit beyo...

    Watch: Red Band Trailer For The Stylish Horror Pic 'I Saw The Devil'

    The latest from "The Good, the Bad, the Weird" director Kim Ji-Woon, "I Saw the Devil," has been doing the festival rounds for the past little while picking up strong notices at each stop.

Maybe if it was really about grits, as the above parody -- part of the Photoshop meme blog Snack to the Future -- seems to be. Also, now I'm really craving cheddar grits.

    No Shocker - Hollywood is Sexist and Ageist

    I spend a lot of time talking about the plight of women directors, but make no mistake it is just as bad for women writers.

    Based on a novel co-authored by shamed memoirist James Frey, "I Am Number Four" is a sci-fi take on the same sort of material that has made 'Twilight' an international sensation.
