    DVD review: Forget The Film, Watch The Titles!

    I’ve always loved ingenious title sequences. Saul Bass, who created some of the greatest movie openings of all time (Vertigo, Psycho, North by Northwest, Walk on the Wild Side, That’s Entertainment, Part II and a handful of Martin Scorsese films, to name just a few), remains one of my heroes, along with Maurice Binder (who did those unforgettable James Bond titles) and Pablo Ferro (who once sent me a hand-inked note in the exact typeface he used for Dr. Strangelove!). In recent years such talented conceptualists as Kyle Cooper and the team at yU & Co. have generated graphic ideas as innovative as any of their predecess...

    Shailene Woodley Eyes 'Easy A' Writer Bert Royal's Directorial Debut 'A Thousand Words Or Less'

    The sleeper success of "Easy A" seems to have brought good fortune on the major players involved. It certainly launched the career of already rising star Emma Stone into the stratosphere, with Will Gluck quickly moving up the ladder with "Friends With Benefits" opening this past weekend, with a few more projects in the works including another team-up with Stone and an adaptation of "Sex On The Moon." Moreover, he also inked a two-year deal with Sony. Not bad. And if we're feeling generous, we'll even say that Penn Badgley's recent casting in "Greetings From Tim Buckley" where he'll play Jeff Buckley certainly wasn't hurt by his turn as the ha...

    America Ferrera Joins Cop Drama 'End Of Watch' With Jake Gyllenhaal

    Has anybody seen America Ferrera since "Ugly Betty" ended? Ever since the sitcom went off air in mid-2010, Ferrera has been seemingly off the radar in terms of projects we genuinely care about (though she did lend her voice to the beloved animated film "How To Train Your Dragon").
