    The 10 Greatest Hits Of The Randy & Evi Quaid Vanity Fair Profile

    If you haven't been following the crazy (and kind of amazing) trainwreck story of the life of actor Randy Quaid and his wife Evi, you pretty much have to ask yourself why. The Quaids have been on the wrong end of the headlines since September 2009 when they were arrested in Texas for allegedly defrauding an innkeeper, burglary, and conspiracy in California. Their troubles actually started to begin further back in 2007 when Quaid's erratic behavior got him fired from "Lone Star Love," a Western-themed stage play adaptation of Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor, in which Quaid played the lead role of Falstaff (he was banned for life by th...

    It's been pretty common knowledge since the beginning of the year that Neill Blomkamp was planning to follow the massive success of "District 9" not with a sequel or as was erroneously rumored at one time, "The Hobbit," but with a project of his own creation called "Elysium."

    Going Crazy For The Holidays

    If you’re unsure what to give that film-buff friend or relative this year for Christmas, or the last night of Chanukah, might I be so bold as to suggest a gift subscription to Leonard Maltin’s Movie Crazy? We’ll send the lucky recipient our current issue, with my story on the forgotten music of Casablanca and an interview with MGM director George Sidney, along with a personalized gift card. That will be the first of four issues, which are published on an admittedly irregular schedule. If you want to augment the gift you can also purchase back issues which are chockfull of unusual interviews, articles, rare photos and movie memorabilia. For mo...

    Watch: Kevin Bacon's Biggest Fan Is Kevin Bacon In Funny, Clever Logitech Ad

    Most celebrity ads are pretty baffling or ludicrously self important (please see every perfume ad ever), so it's refreshing to see a spot that a) isn't hidden by airing only in some random European or Asian country, b) is genuinely pretty funny and c) finds the star taking the piss on his own person...

    Watch: New Trailer For 'Battle: Los Angeles' Features Less Footage, More Voiceover

    Following the effectively moody first trailer for "Battle: Los Angeles" -- oops, sorry, "World Invasion: Battle Los Angeles" (we guess the title change is there to make sure that folks know shit is going to blow up real good) -- the film's marketers have opted to show less footage and deliver more v...

    Latino Days Are Here Again!

    Looking forward to what's new at Ventana Sur and being able to watch films via Cinando during the event itself, I am made aware that Latin America has a rapidly expanding film industry due to new technologies, new well trained filmmakers and governments who have stepped up local support of local filmmaking. The current call for submissions for Cine En Construcion, the twice-yearly rendezvous held at the San Sebastian and Toulouse Festivals gives a welcome place for networking in Toulouse on March 24 and 25, 2011. This initiative by the San Sebastian International Film Festival and the Rencontres Cinémas d’Amérique Latine in Toulouse focuses ...

    Video: "Inception" in Real-Time

    Just in time for tomorrow's home video release of "Inception," here is a fan-made version of the film for those of us wondering how it might have looked as directed by Mike Figgis in 2000. Seriously, though, YouTuber weikang has simply separated the four dream levels in the movie, cut each together as whole, continuity-wise, and then placed them each side by side in a quartered split-screen, a la "Time Code." And because of the logic of the film, the sequences are in "real-time" but they don't play at the same speed. It's just an exercise and not very entertaining. And referring to it as '"Inception" in four and a half minutes' just won't do ...

    Robert Duvall Describes Late Director Stanley Kubrick As An "Actor's Enemy"

    Calls Performances In 'The Shining' & 'A Clockwork Orange' Some Of The Worst EverYou gotta love Robert Duvall. The great actor showed up to the recent THR's Awards Watch Roundtable and more or less played the part of the lovable uncle, amusing the rest of the table with his timeless tales and brutal...
