    Bruno's Cohen Strikes Gay Poses

    We all saw Sacha Baron Cohen in his Bruno guise descend on the face of Eminem at the MTV Movie Awards. Well, not since Zoolander have we seen a straight actor take so many gay poses. Not only is he on the cover of GQ--with more provocative spreads inside--but he looks quite fetching in a Brit milita...

    New Film Critics Aggregator Challenges Rotten Tomatoes

    Never rest on your laurels. When something is working, something new and improved comes along. While many of my pals prefer critics' aggregator Metacritic, which is leaner, more elegant, pickier and more pure than the mighty but messier, more inclusive and more crowded Rotten Tomatoes, there's a new...

    Fans, Friends & Followers: Playbook for the Social Media Age

    Cinematech blogger Scott Kirsner drank the digital Kool-aid some time back. So the author of 2007's The Future of Web Video and 2008's Inventing the Movies decided that he had to self-publish his newest book, Fans, Friends and Followers.

    Twitter Makes Time Cover

    While I graze my Tweetdeck several times a day to see what the 184 people I am following on Twitter have posted (I know, I'm cutting the list down), the people following me tend to just get my automatic blogfeed, which also goes to Facebook (only if I'm logged in; if not, I have to check and add it ...

    Media Update: Jolie, Carpetbagger, THR, Hayes

    Angelina Jolie tops Forbes 100 Celebrities list, replacing Oprah Winfrey as number one. I suspect they just got tired of the richer and more all-powerful, if less glam/sexy and tabloid-friendly Winfrey. Besides, Jolie is Hollywood's one and only femme action star.

    MTV Movie Awards: Twilight, Bruno vs. Eminem

    The MTV Movie Awards, hosted by Andy Samberg, were the usual lackluster, pseudo-hip, mainstream youth alternative to the Oscars--and huge Hollywood marketing opportunity. Summer movies from Paramount (Star Trek, Transformers 2 and G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra) and Warner Bros. (The Hangover) got promoed,...

    Cannes Press Conference Erupts Over Trier's Antichrist

    The Monday press conference for Lars von Trier's Antichrist was packed. Right out of the gate, The London Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye demanded that Trier justify his film.

    Saving Journalism: from Obama to Pincus

    President Barack Obama, at the end of his funny, barbed and self-mocking White House Correspondents speech, graciously thanked the assembled press corps for doing their jobs --even when he disagreed with them--and recognized that their profession was under duress. He wished them well as they reinven...

    Transformers' Megan Fox Shoots Esquire Video

    Clever marketing: put Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen star Megan Fox on the cover of Esquire. Shoot a Red One Camera video by Greg Williams to sell the cover story and photo layout--which come from the video shoot (a first). Let the video spread through the web like wildfire. (Which it would if ...
