Last year had some good news for female movie actors. Not that good, but better than previous years. “It’s a Man’s (Celluloid) World,” a report released Tuesday by San Diego State University’s Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film, found that in the top 100 domestic grossing movies released in 2018, 35 percent of speaking characters were female. That was up one percentage point from the 2017 study, but then the figures get a little more ambivalent. At 36 percent, the amount of wo...

‘Triple Frontier’ Trailer: Oscar Isaac and Ben Affleck Can’t Go Back to Their Normal Lives

Triple Frontier‘s long road to the big screen is almost as fascinating as the film itself. The drug money heist thriller was in the works for years at Paramount Pictures with Katherine Bigelow set to helm the film. Then Netflix picked it up with Oscar-nominated A Most Violent Year director J.C. Chandor attached. Meanwhile, the cast went through quite a revolving door of actors, with Johnny Depp and Mark Wahlberg at one point slated to lead, then Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum. But the while the c...

20 movies to see at the Red Bull Music Festival LA film series

In the late 1970s, when punk rock still seemed dangerous – no, it’s true, kids, you can ask your mom and dad – the venerable old Ukrainian Cultural Center in East Hollywood was one of the few places in Los Angeles willing to host shows for bands such as Black Flag and Bad Brains, the Minutemen and the Circle Jerks. These days it’s home to tamer events like the centennial of the late great Ukrainian-American actor Volodymyr Palahniuk – you may know him as Oscar-winning actor Jack Palance – or the...

2018 Kaedrin Movie Awards: The Arbitrary Awards

The 2018 Kaedrin Movie Award Winners were announced last week. The premise of those awards is to recognize aspects of films that aren't reflected in more traditional awards or praise like a Top 10 list or whatever. However, any awards system will fail to capture all the nuances and complexity available, so we come to the Arbitrary Awards, an opportunity to commend movies that are weird or flawed in ways that don't conform to normal standards. A few of these "awards" have become an annual traditi...

The Biggest 2019 Oscars Snubs and Surprises

Look, we’re the first to admit that the entire concept of an “Oscar snub” is a little bit silly. It’s not like everyone in the Academy gets together and secretly plots to teach a filmmaker or actor a lesson by refusing to nominate them for a golden statuette. That’s simply not how it works on any level. And yet, it can’t help but feel deliberate and personal because we’re dealing with an award that can make or break careers. When someone who was supposed to get nominated gets left out, it feels...
