‘Isn’t It Romantic?’ Director Todd Strauss-Schulson Watched Every Romantic Comedy Made Between 1988 and 2007 to Prepare [Interview]

Isn’t It Romantic? is in theaters right now. The story follows a New York architect named Natalie (Rebel Wilson) who works hard to get noticed at her job. But more often than not gets relegated to the sidelines, sent out for coffee instead of presenting her big ideas for her firm’s clients. Life takes an odd turn when Natalie gets knocked unconscious and wakes up in her own romantic comedy. It’s both an unsettling nightmare and a hilarious dream. Director Todd Strauss-Schulson (A Very Harold & ...

‘Paddington’ Animated Series Will Have Ben Whishaw Reprising the Voice of Everyone’s Favorite Marmalade-Loving Bear

In this cold, bleak world, there’s only one thing that seemingly brings everyone together: the Paddington franchise. The good-hearted series has introduced the marmalade-loving bear to a whole new generation, while offering a bold suggestion: be nice to others. Crazy, I know! While we wait for Paddington 3, here’s some good news: there’s a Paddington animated series on the way, and Paddington himself – aka Ben Whishaw – will be reprising his role as the voice of the very polite bear. Accordi...

Visual Feasts: Merchant Ivory Do What They Do Best in 'Feast of July'

None Left in the lurch by the movie-going public in 1995, Feast of July was probably one of the more demure productions to come out of the Merchant Ivory workshop. Based on a minor work by H.E. Bates, who wrote mostly charming and very British novels about the English working life, the film was further sidelined by its rather unenthusiastic critical reception. Time, however, has been kind to the film and it isn't really the forgettable fluff that the likes of Roger Ebert claimed it to be. Lift...

Small-Screen Stream: True Crime, ‘Sex Education,’ and the Reign of Netflix  

(Welcome to Small-Screen Stream, a feature where we share the best television shows streaming and where you can watch them.) Netflix has been the talk of the town these last few weeks. In December, its original movie Bird Box became its most-streamed ever, and the company –  once notoriously private about ratings –  has started slowly releasing viewership information. And then, the Oscar nominations happened, where two Netflix movies –  Roma and The Ballad of Buster Scruggs – took...

2018 Kaedrin Movie Award Winners

The nominations for the 2018 Kaedrin Movie Awards were announced last week. You've all been on the edge of your seats since then, but fear not, I'll be announcing the winners today. Next week, I'll announce the winners of some more goofy, freeform categories that we call the Arbitrary Awards, and not long after that, I'll post my top 10 of 2018. Finally, we'll have some Oscars talk (predictions and probably live-tweeting or more accurately, retweeting funnier people than I am) and then it's on t...

2018 Kaedrin Movie Awards

Welcome to the thirteenth annual Kaedrin Movie Awards! Lucky number 13! A baker's dozen! The idea is to recognize films for various achievements that don't always reflect well on top 10 lists or traditional awards. There are lots of formal award categories and nominees listed below, but once those are announced, we'll also leave some room for Arbitrary Awards that are more goofy and freeform. Finally, we'll post a traditional top 10 list (usually sometime in early/mid-February). But first up is ...

Emma Watson 'optimistic for a fairer future' as Golden Globes set to kick off most diverse awards season yet

Hoai-Tran Bui’s Top 10 Movies of 2018

2018 has come and gone, and we’re 84 years older for it. But enough of my opining about what a terrible year it was (you’ll probably get plenty of that in everyone else’s pieces). I’m here to talk about the things I loved in 2018, and that was movies. I don’t ascribe to the belief that there are “good” or “bad” years for movies, there are just the movies that personally speak to you every year. And while that number can swell or dwindle each year, there will at least be a couple that unquestion...

Trustbusting is now a bipartisan issue

Ronald Reagan may be sainted by the right, but 2018 was the year conservatives broke with his slavish, simpleminded adherence to the Chicago School antitrust theory that says that governments should only regulate monopolies when they give rise to higher consumer prices -- it's also the year the right realized that extreme market concentration in the tech sector could lead to a future in which conspiracy theorists, Nazis, "white identity enthusiasts," and crank misogynists might find themselves ...

Universal acclaim is hard to come by. Even the most beloved film or TV show will have a few detractors.

As 2018 draws to a close, here are the handful of this year’s lucky TV shows and movies with 100% Rotten Tomatoes scores. Before we dive into this, a disclaimer: not every critic is on Rotten Tomatoes. In fact, there are many arts critics who aren’t accredited to the...

Lily James Joins Four Wedding & A Funeral Sequel — & We Have Questions

The nostalgia klaxon has been rung once more. The occasion? The 25th anniversary of Four Weddings and a Funeral, aka the exemplary British rom-com that prompted a wild fascination with Hugh Grant's middle-parted floppy hair and shaped our adolescent understanding of what that little thing called "love" might look like (rainy, apparently).To mark the occasion, much of the original cast have reunited to film a short sequel especially for Red Nose Day 2019 and, unsurprisingly, we're all very excit...

Netflix tops other streamers with most Golden Globes nods, but Amazon beats it on TV

Netflix is having another good year when it comes to racking up the Golden Globe nominations. Last year, Netflix topped the list of the most-nominated networks alongside HBO with 12 nods, even if that didn’t translate to many wins for the streaming service. This time around, 8 nominations for its TV series and another 5 in the film category. However, Netflix is not the most-nominated “TV” network. This year, that honor goes to FX Networks, which accumulated 10 nominations for its shows like...

Nominations for the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards arrived on Thursday and while a lot of the news was expected – “A Star Is Born” continues to roll in the early rounds of awards shows’ nods – there was plenty you might not have guessed in the office pool, such as the fact that “Vice,” the Dick Cheney biopic that doesn’t arrive in theaters until Dec. 25, leads the pack with six nominations.
