J. Paul Getty was not a billionaire known for his generosity. But since his death, the Getty Trust and complex of Getty museums in L.A. have carried forth in a more magnanimous spirit, ostensibly adhering to values that transcend their founder: “service, philanthropy, teaching, and access.” A collection first gathered for private investment and consumption (sometimes under a cloud of scandal) has expanded into galleries that millions pass through every year; a Conservation Institute dedicated t...

Gavin Newsom’s keeping it all in the family

Gavin Newsom will be the first Democrat in more than a century to succeed another Democrat as governor and the succession also marks a big generational transition in California politics. A long-dominant geriatric quintet from the San Francisco Bay Area – Gov. Jerry Brown, Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi – has been slowly ceding power to younger political strivers. Moreover, Newsom is succeeding someone who could be considered his quasi-uncle since his inau...

Trevor’s Travels: 5 LA area museums worth visiting now or anytime

A favorite TV travel host of mine recently discussed his five favorite museums. They were all in Europe, but it set me to thinking. There are lots of museums here in the Southland and maybe I could tease out five of the best. I would be hard-pressed to number them in order of preference so I’ll just call them all equal in terms of interest. They also all have one thing in common, but more about that later. Living in Southern California, we are surrounded by wealth and wealth is what allows peopl...

Why Fashion People Love Cult Film Grey Gardens

There are three things fashion people love: eccentrics, glamour, and tragicomedy – that perverse play of humor and sadness so loved in the British (and camp) comedy cannon that we Americans can't get enough of. Grey Gardens has an abundance of all three, so naturally it has become an enduring cult classic among fashion folk.Released in 1975, the film was directed by documentary filmmakers and brothers Albert and David Maysles. It depicts the lives of Edith Ewing Bouvier Beale and her daughter, ...

Bernardo Bertolucci Slams Ridley Scott For Replacing Kevin Spacey In Film

Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci is not happy with fellow director Ridley Scott, especially after the latter decided to have Kevin Spacey replaced in the film “All the Money in the World.” Spacey is an undeniably good actor, but after he was accused of sexual misconduct by several men, he was booted out from his film and TV projects. In “All the Money in the World,” he was replaced by Christopher Plummer in his role as J. Paul Getty even though they were already done filming.

A Day In The Life Of A Working Mom In Hollywood

Against all odds, 37-year-old Marta Cross has managed to establish herself as an actress in Hollywood. She’s starred in several high-profile feature films, had guest roles in over a dozen TV shows, and has produced, directed and starred in her own films. But unlike the glitz and glamour of daily red carpets, her life looks like what some might say most working actors’ lives look like: She runs from audition to audition, hosts screen parties, manages an Airbnb with her husband on the side, and...

Here’s how the 2018 Academy Awards nominations made Oscars history

The 2018 Academy Award nominations are finally here, with Guillermo Del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” leading the pack with 13 nominations. While that certainly may sound like a milestone, 13 nominations is nothing to scoff at, last year’s “La La Land” and 1997’s “Titanic” still hold the top honor with 14 nominations. Though the nominations for “The Shape of Water” didn’t make history, there were other nominations that broke the mold. Best Cinematography – Rachel Morrison, “Mudbound” Rachel Morris...

11 Books-Turned-Movies You Should Read This Awards Season

As Steve Jobs once paraphrased Picasso, “Good artists copy. Great artists steal.” While it’s debatable whether the best films are original stories or adaptations, it’s certainly true that Hollywood loves to plunder existing source material when making movies — and successful books are a favorite starting point. The prestige films likely to win awards in 2018 include adaptations of a dozen popular and acclaimed novels, memoirs and biographies, by authors young, old, and dead, with settings i...

End the year with 5 classy, if not always easy to like, new movies

Hollywood’s released a lot of classy stuff in the final week of 2017. All the movies listed below, in order of how much I liked ’em, are extremely well-made and worth your time – with the caveat of “if you’re into that sort of thing” strongly attached. Have a happy New Year and happier moviegoing in 2018!   “Phantom Thread.” Weird, unusually funny and rather self-controlled for a Paul Thomas Anderson drama, this delectably shot (perhaps by PTA himself?

Disney XD Has Re-Dubbed Louis C.K.’s ‘Gravity Falls’ Character

It’s unfortunate enough to play a character named the Horrifying Sweaty One-Armed Monstrosity, but even more so when the voice actor of said character is under intense scrutiny for sexual harassment. Louis C.K., who is currently facing allegations of a history of sexual misconduct, has been scrubbed from Disney XD’s reruns of Gravity Falls, where he played a minor character in 2015 and 2016 episodes of the show.

‘All the Money in the World’ Review: Christopher Plummer Dominates Ridley Scott’s New Movie

Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World begins with a monologue from John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) in which he explains to the audience that the sheer amount of money that the Gettys possessed might as well have meant that they came from a different planet. “We look like you,” he says, “But we’re not like you.” And indeed they aren’t. When Paul is kidnapped and his mother Gail (Michelle Williams) tries to contact his grandfather (Christopher Plummer) for the $17 million ransom, J. Pau...

Kevin Spacey Went ‘Underground’ After Sexual Assault Claims Surfaced, Says Ridley Scott

“All the Money in the World” director Ridley Scott cannot deny that Kevin Spacey did a fantastic job in the J. Paul Getty biopic, but after the actor’s sexual assault allegations came out, he was forced to replace him just so the movie can still come out. Scott’s decision paid off, because the movie was hailed as a success. His replacement, Christopher Plummer, even received a Golden Globe nomination for his role.

Film Review: ‘All the Money in the World’

In “All the Money in the World,” gazillionaire J.

But what if doing so read as an open […]
