    Oscar Watch: Critics, Academy, Men, Women: The Help vs. Rise of the Planet of the Apes

    It's not surprising where @spikelee falls on The Help. He's retweeting the articles that support his views, from indieWIRE's Eric Kohn to Michael Phillips in The Chicago Tribune. UPDATE: And The Association of Black Women Historians also disapproves.

    Does the world need a film magazine targeted at women? The women who created Studio Magazine in the UK believe we do.

    Empire Big Screen '11: 'Kill List' Helmer Ben Wheatley's Next Is Edgar Wright-Produced 'Sightseers'

    Comedy 'I, Macrobane' With Nick Frost Will Follow In 2012Perhaps the biggest homegrown hit of Empire Big Screen over the weekend was Ben Wheatley's "Kill List," a low-budget hitman/horror flick from the director of the excellent, terminally underseen crime film "Down Terrace."

If you've read our review from SXSW, you'll know that it's a film worth getting very excited about (it even made one member of T...

    'The Aviator' & 'Gladiator' Writer John Logan Teams With Patti Smith To Adapt Her Memoir 'Just Kids'

    It's pretty much impossible to talk about the burgeoning 1970s punk movement in New York City without mentioning Patti Smith, the power of her music and the influence it would have on a generation of artists. But talent and passion isn't created in a vacuum and during Smith's most formative years, she found an emotional and artistic soulmate in photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, and together they rose through the early stages of their respective careers together. Smith recently chronicled that relationship in a National Book Award-winning memoir "Just Kids," and now, that story is making the transition to the big screen with some pretty big ta...
