Ryan Gosling Is The Ken To Margot Robbie's Barbie In Warner Bros.' Live-Action Movie

Prepare your pink plastic shoes and clean out the dream house, because the Margot Robbie "Barbie" movie has found its Ken.

New face

I mentioned in this space the other day that “personal distractions” were among the things that had kept me from posting for three weeks. The main one is the fact that I have fallen in love.  The woman in question is Cheril Mulligan, a theater-and-film buff from and lifelong resident of Long Island. We became acquainted through Twitter, on which she tweets under a pseudonym, and “Three on the Aisle,” the theatrical podcast that I do with Peter Marks and Elisabeth Vincentelli. We got to k...

The 10 Best Margot Robbie Movies Ranked

Be honest: Did you underestimate Margot Robbie at first? The Australian actress first garnered international attention for the trailer to 2013's "The Wolf of Wall Street," a Kanye-scored masterpiece that sold Robbie's character, Naomi Lapagila, as pure eye candy. That got the internet's curiosity. But Martin Scorsese's classic didn't reduce Lapagila to a bombshell trophy wife, thanks largely to Robbie's incendiary performance. With Robbie at the helm, Lapagila was an interesting, dynamic, and fu...

Adam Sandler's 14 Best Roles Ranked

Adam Sandler has had a fascinating career. Beginning with his star-making role as a cast member on "Saturday Night Live," Sandler's early time in the spotlight was defined by baby talk, sing-songy jokes, and goofy yelling. Early on, Sandler primarily played overgrown and over-privileged man babies with hair-trigger tempers. Many of those performances are very, very funny, but they don't come with a particularly large amount of depth.However, as Sandler has grown as an actor (particularly after l...

I grew up in Portland, and I love it. Here's why I'm never moving back, even though I can work from anywhere.

Portland is home to violent protests, tent cities, killer heat waves, and my parents. (That's me in the striped shirt, with my mother and brothers, from a family photo circa 1983.) Dakarai Akil for Insider It was around the time of the second baby that we started to think about where to settle down. For many years my wife and I had pursued the semi-itinerant lifestyle of freelance workers. Place was a liquid commodity. We changed apartments every year or two. The one consistency was the...

The 15 Best '90s Comedies Ranked

The '90s were a landmark decade for comedy films. The growth of independent filmmaking allowed unique comedic voices to reach mainstream audiences. "Saturday Night Live" generated a new batch of comedy stars, many of whom made successful screen debuts during the decade and are still active today. The old guard was still around, too, creating characters with more depth and nuance than any parts they played during the '80s. It wasn't just live-action, either; for the first time, adult animated sho...

‘Gunpowder Milkshake’ Director Navot Papushado on Taking Inspiration From Jackie Chan and Buster Keaton [Interview]

Gunpowder Milkshake is a movie that lives up to its title. For starters, it looks like sugar, with its candy-like aesthetic – it’s a visual treat from director Navot Papushado and one of the all-time great cinematographers, Michael Seresin. Seresin shot several of filmmaker Alan Parker’s films, including Angel Heart, Midnight Express, and the joyous Bugsy Malone. To say Papushado was excited to work with him is an understatement. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Papushado made an impression wit...

"I'll be desperately good for the rest of my life": notes on Greta Gerwig's Little Women

I have mixed feelings about the movie, especially given my admiration for Greta Gerwig’s work otherwise. Her earlier movie Frances Ha (2012), cowritten with Noah Baumbach, is one of my all-time favorites, a superbly edited black and white film made with a nothing budget. With Little Women, there’s just something about the sentimental milieu of the 1860s style of Alcott’s writing, the ready emotion of the characters, the “classic” status of this much beloved novel, Margie’s saintlike self-sacrif...

The Margot Robbie ‘Barbie’ Movie Will “Truly Honor the IP,” So We Can All Relax

I don’t know about you, but whenever there’s a movie adapted from some other source material on the way, my one and only thought is: “Will this movie honor the IP?” That’s all that matters. Art be damned, I just want to make sure the intellectual property is being treated like some sort of sacred text! Especially if that property happens to be toys, the most sacrosanct of all things. Thankfully, the Margot Robbie Barbie movie is doing just that, according to Robbie herself. But the actress also...
