    Review: Horror 'The Conjuring' Starring Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga, Lili Taylor & Ron Livingston

    Who would have guessed that the man responsible for spearheading the “torture porn” label would turn out to be such a classicist filmmaker? James Wan, who famously abandoned the over-long “Saw” series after its first gruesome installment, has gone on to make a number of pictures that harken back to ...

    To The Academy: Consider the Women

    It's that time of year, The Academy Awards, the "Super Bowl for Women." It's the night where we all get catty about whose dress doesn't work, who's got a new boyfriend or girlfriend, and who looks like they haven't eaten all month.

    Patrick Wilson & Vera Farmiga To Star In James Wan's 'The Conjuring'

    While he’s never exactly made a standout horror film, director James Wan, the mastermind along with co-writer Leigh Whannel behind the “Saw” franchise, inched a little closer to something truly compelling with 2011’s “Insidious.” It’s a film that the Playlis...

    Vera Farmiga Pulls Double Duty in Her Accomplished Directorial Debut 'Higher Ground,' Our Pick of the Week

    2011 was a big year for actors taking chances behind the camera. George Clooney got political with his critically acclaimed drama "The Ides of March;" Paddy Considine brought real grit to his debut "Tyrannosaur;" and Clint Eastwood invited controversy with his biopic "J. Edgar." Most impressive of a...

    Hollywood Reporter Acknowledges That The Industry is Sexist

    The Hollywood Reporter in the wake of their complete dismissal of women in both its writer and director roundtables has done a 360 and put together a whole cover on the lack of women directors and other women in power in the business.  While the package is interesting (while not saying anyth...

    Women Directed Movies in 2011

    Yesterday, the Hollywood Reporter roundtable on directors made me crazy, but it also made me think.  While I will give them no leeway on the ridiculous comment asking the directors to name a major movie directed by a woman this past year, I thought it would be good to look at ALL the movies dir...

    And So It Begins, 'The Descendants' & 'Martha Marcy May Marlene' Lead Gotham Award Nominees

    Well folks, the first batch of nominees this awards season have been revealed, with the Gotham Independent Film Award nominations landing this morning, giving an early peek at what will likely be some strong contenders down the line. Bear in mind, the Gotham Awards have little bearing on the eventual Oscar nods with only last year's Best Feature winner "Winter's Bone" factoring into the proceedings at the Kodak Theater. However, it does represent a good chunk of what you might see at the Independent Spirit Awards later in the year and if anything, these nominations confirm that Fox Searchlight is going to have another banner year on the statu...

    Shirley Maclaine, Alan Arkin & Vera Farmiga Are 'The Locals' In Italian/Jewish Romeo & Juliet Riff

    For never was a story of more woe, than this of Juliet and her Romeo. It's not surprising that William Shakespeare's tale of star-crossed lovers has provided the inspiration for dozens of films over the years, but there seems to be something in the water at the moment in particular: Disney had a surprise hit at the start of the year with their (very loose) animated take, "Gnomeo & Juliet," while Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth are gearing up for a more faithful version, while Keira Knightley and Lily Collins are supposedly competing for the lead in "Rosaline," which will focus on the titular girl, who Romeo is in love with before he gets a...
