There's a rumor going around that Katie was pregnant by former fiance Chris Klein, who is slightly slant-eyed, before they broke up and that she actually gave birth a few months prior to the alleged April birth date, wearing padding for a couple of months to make the time-line look like it was Tom'...

Have I forgotten some? No, I don't imagine the Turks would think very highly of Midnight Express. What about the more recent Bond film, The World Is Not Enough? Istanbul (1957) with Errol Flynn, Cornell Borchers and Nat King Cole is known for its gorgeous cinematography. A remake of 1947's Singapor...

Thanks Van Helsing. The review is helpful. Redgrave could very easily win a supporting nod, maybe even another supporting Oscar in what could be another great year for the Brits - O'Toole, Griffiths, Toby Jones, Helen Mirren, Judi Dench, et. al. I am not one of those to jump on the annual here come...

Tinseltown has been wanting to give Peter O'Toole an Oscar for decades. He was highly insulted when advised he was being given an honorary Oscar a few years ago because he thought that meant they no longer considered him viable for a regular Oscar. There are three precedents on his side. Both Henry...

Van Helsing, this is the first mention I've seen anywhere of Peter O'Toole. Is this a wild guess or have you actually read or heard something about his new film?

The FCC be damned, but let's not got ban kids from watching the Emmys. I'm sure they hear a lot worse in the school playground every day. Better they should hear such comments in the safety of their own living rooms where their parents can explain it to them. As I stated in an earlier post, Mirren ...

Giving credit where it's due, the "crap on a stick" comment came from a poster on the site set up by those banished from the guru's site, but you're right, it's not the opinions so much as the inarticulate dismissiveness of others' opinions that irks me. Someone did come to the defense of The Last ...

Has anyone else here seen Akeelah and the Bee ? I saw this the other night, previewing the dvd that comes out next Tuesday. It is surprisingly wonderful. I had wondered why critics like Roger Ebert were gushing about it, thinking "how could a spelling bee movie be that good?" Yet there it is, a bea...
