    OSCARS DEATH RACE: W.E.

    When a movie bombs, I like to go to Rotten Tomatoes, sort the reviews by "Rotten," and enjoy the show. Flops can bring out the best a critic (or her thesaurus) has to offer, the acidic synonyms and dismissive gut-punches she saves for when a movie is genuinely and thoroughly crap and not just misgui...

    The Amazing Race: Why 'Transformers 3' & 'W.E.' Deserve Their Oscar Nominations

    This week, we want to deal with something that's been bugging us a little, not just this year, but for the last few years. Every January, a familiar, but slightly different mantra is repeated around the internet: "I can't believe [insert critically-reviled blockbuster] has got an Oscar nomination, a...

    In Theaters: 'The Woman in Black' Will Hope To 'Chronicle' A 'Big Miracle'

    Happy Friday all, and welcome to February. It finally feels like a normal release weekend, now that we are out of the January no-mans-land. Funny how that self-fulfilling prophecy works out. Or, how studios strictly adhere to the "January movie" policy. Anyway, onwards and upwards my pets....

    Madonna's W.E.: Half Truth, Half Dare

    Madonna could not have had a more enthusiastic and welcoming audience for W.E. than I was when I walked into the screening room. I’m fascinated by the inexhaustible Wallis Simpson story. We may never understand the psycho-sexual-political drama that led Edward VIII to abdicate so he could...

    'W.E.' Star Andrea Riseborough Talks The "Apocalyptic Limbo" Of 'Resistance' & Trawling Chat Rooms In 'Disconnect'

    Andrea Riseborough is about to hit screens as Wallis Simpson in the Madonna-directed "W.E.," but the actress is quick to point out that she has a slew of non-period films coming up, including her Sundance IRA thriller "Shadow Dancer" and ensemble drama "Disconnect."

    Madonna & Andrea Riseborough Talk The Music & The Rumored Nazi Ties Of Edward VIII & Wallis Simpson In 'W.E.'

    Madonna found a kindred spirit of sorts when she started researching the life of Wallis Simpson -- long before she dreamed of directing and co-writing a "Julie & Julia"-style take on the Duchess of Windsor in "W.E." Feeling very much the foreigner when she first moved to England, Madonna started rea...

    Watch: New Clip From Madonna's Golden Globe Winning 'W.E.'

    Perhaps the biggest surprise last night at the Golden Globes -- in an evening where everyone who was expected to win, did -- was Madonna's victory in the Best Original Song category for the ironically titled "Masterpiece." While the win pissed off a cranky Elton John, the honor spoke b...

    The Best Way To Enjoy 'W.E'? A Madonna Vanity Project.

    "W.E." is less outright bad than underwhelming; if the director were unknown, it would hardly deserve notice. Like her first film, the 2008 "Filth and Wisdom," it suffers from countless storytelling flaws. But where her debut was a bizarre low-budget and blatantly amateur British...

    ‘W.E.’ Release Date Pushed Back To February 3, 2012 After Oscar-Qualifying Run In December

    When you’re a studio executive who has his eye on that Oscar prize, your schedule tends to move around this time of year. For Harvey Weinstein, Oscar gold is that metaphorical paint he needs to huff every 12 months or else he loses it and starts putting New York Observer film critics in headlo...
