    Things I Learned On the Awards Party Circuit

After the best picture winners for The King's Speech had wrapped up, I walked over to t...

    The Wright Stuff II Wraps at New Beverly

I had a blast when I attended a rare Joe Dante double feature there--and met Dennis Cozzalio for the first t...

    Toy Story 3 Tops Quentin Tarantino's Best of 2010

    Quentin Tarantino has posted his favorite movies of 2010, all twenty of them. Unlike many critics, Tarantino has no problem with citing movies that are popular hits.

    Editor Sally Menke Died in Beachwood Canyon During Heat Wave, Dog At Her Side

    Editor Sally Menke's body was found by searchers at the bottom of a Beachwood Canyon ravine Tuesday morning, her Lab at her side. She was 56, and had been hiking Monday in L.A.'s extreme heat (which broke the downtown record of 113 degrees Monday, as well as the thermometer recording that record), reports the LAT. I had the pleasure of meeting Menke last year at Lawrence Bender's Oscar party for Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, which she edited, along with all of Tarantino's films. It was great fun talking to her about how she and Tarantino debated the merits of whether to divide the film into five chapters or try to weave it into an...

    Venice Wrap: Best of Fest, Winners and Losers, Golden Lion Goes to Somewhere

    The Venice Film Festival, the oldest in the world, is winding up its 67th edition, my first.
