‘Masters of the Universe’ Reboot Wants Noah Centineo to Play He-Man

Noah Centineo, the internet’s boyfriend who may or may not be a young clone of Mark Ruffalo, might be headed to Eternia. The To All the Boy’s I’ve Loved Before actor is being sought after to play He-Man in the Masters of the Universe reboot. This would certainly be a far cry from the last live-action version of He-Man, played by Dolph Lundgren in 1987. The Wrap broke the news about Noah Centineo joining the Masters of the Universe reboot cast as He-Man. Centineo is in talks to join the film,...

Off Broadway Review: Isabelle Huppert in ‘The Mother’

Like “The Father,” which won the 2016 Tony Award for Frank Langella in the titanic lead role, “The Mother,” which features a searing performance by Isabelle Huppert, advances French playwright Florian Zeller’s theme of the disintegration of the family unit. (Completing the trilogy, “The Son” just opened in London.) The stark opening visual communicates all […]

Exit Lines: “The Waverly Gallery”

It’s been close to 60 years since Elaine May has officially headlined on Broadway, the last time in tandem with Mike Nichols, her partner in comedy. (Yes, there was Jerome Robbins’ The Office, in 1966, but that closed in previews.) She had other things to do: writing movies (like 1978’s Heaven Can Wait and 1998’s Primary Colors, for which she received Oscar nominations), directing movies (four, all of them worthwhile, including, yes, 1987’s Ishtar), and occasionally acting in them, most recently...

Ranking the Movies Directed by George Clooney

Ranking the Movies Directed by George Clooney George Clooney has asserted himself as a very versatile actor over his career. He has been Oscar-nominated and has even won one as well. Perhaps among his best gifts, is his smooth transition from being in front of the camera to behind it. Clooney has put himself in his films before, but he has managed to direct three very solid films while also turning some solid performances. By baseball standards, Clooney is batting .500 which is pretty solid. ...

Five Monstrous ’80s Baddies Who Deserve a Resurrection on the Big Screen

The late ’70s and ’80s gave movie-going audiences quite the collection of spine-tingling baddies to love. Freddy from Nightmare on Elm Street, the xenomorphs of Alien and Aliens, and, of course, the Predators (who are currently making their triumphant return in The Predator.) But what about the lesser appreciated villains and monsters of the decade? They need a return to the movie world too! And that’s what this list is for – to examine just some of the non-rebooted baddies of the ’80s that nee...

Jim Carrey isn’t ‘Kidding’ around with new Showtime TV series

Showtime’s new series “Kidding” stars Jim Carrey as Jeff Pickles, a beloved children’s TV host, in the actor’s first series regular role in more than two decades. The idea of Carrey playing a beloved kids’ icon might sound like its a setup for satire, but “Kidding” has other aims. “It wasn’t about crafting an arc about a psycho Mr. Rogers,” says Dave Holstein, the show’s creator. “This is about a character, in this age of darkness and lies and bullying, who just wants to be good.” Carrey, of cou...

‘Kidding’ Trailer: Jim Carrey Heartbreakingly and Hilariously Goes Completely Insane

In recent years, Jim Carrey has been much more focused on the kind of art he can paint or sculpt as opposed to the work he puts on the big screen. Since starring in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, the actor has only delivered a couple praiseworthy performances, but now, in his first television regular role in over 20 years, Jim Carrey looks to be delivering something truly special and remarkable.

Movie Mixtape: 6 Movies to Watch With ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’

We never got a Jaws 5. Not really. There’s the Italian knockoff Cruel Jaws that wanted people to think it was part of the franchise, but it’s a million nautical miles from counting. So we stalled out at Jaws: The Revenge. Way to go, humanity. It’s easy to forget how wild it is that, decades after the initial adventure, the other Steven Spielberg franchise about prehistoric beasts transforming family dramas into horror films has made it to a fifth entry.

Shakespeare, Sinatra, and the Philosophy of Aging [excerpt]

 Aging in the world of entertainment is portrayed in a variety of ways. In some cases it’s graceful and elegant; in others it’s manic and doddering. Shakespeare has dealt with this subject numerous times with vast reinterpretations in productions through the centuries. In this excerpt from Aging Thoughtfully: Conversations about Retirement, Wrinkles, Romance, and Regret, authors Martha C. Nussbaum and Saul Levmore look at the classic example of King Lear, and how different portrayals of this eld...
