Rachel Weisz thinks actresses are sexier than actors.

The 'Bourne Legacy' star - who is married to James Bond hunk Daniel Craig - has much more of an appreciation for female screen beauties than her male co-stars.

She said: ''Acting is a different world. I find women sexier on screen than men.

Lindsay Lohan wants to star in a remake of 'Thelma And Louise' with Jennifer Lawrence.

The 'Mean Girls' actress was so impressed with blonde beauty's ''genius'' performance in this year's 'Hunger Games' movie that she is keen to act alongside her in a remake of the 1991 crime drama - which starred Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon as the titular characters - in a similar style to that of 1994 drama 'Natural Born Killers'.

She wrote on twitter: ''Jennifer Lawrence in ''The Hunger Games'' is genius. I want to do Thelma&Louise w/her but ala Natural Born Killers (style wise) 2 girls-2 guys (sic)''

Ben Gazzara Tributes Pour In Following Death, Aged 81


Ben Gazzara Gena Rowlands John Cassavetes Rita Moreno

Tributes have been pouring in for one of the unsung stalwarts of the acting game, Ben Gazzara, after the veteran died on Friday, February 3rd 2012, aged 81 years old. A prolific actor in the 70s in particular, Gazzara found himself finding late favor with a role in the cult 1998 comedy 'The Big Lebowski' though this was just one of 38 films he appeared in throughout his career. Gazzara had made his breakthrough back in the 50s, appearing on Broadway as the originating role of Brick Pollitt, alcoholic and failed football star of 'Cat On A Hot Tin Roof.'

Night On Earth Review


Good
Riding around five shaded cityscapes in four different countries, Jim Jarmusch's nocturnal delight Night on Earth has the esteem of being the auteur's most accessible exercise to date while also being his least seen. After its premiere at the 29th New York Film Festival, this set of through-the-windshield vignettes was picked up for a short theatrical run in May of 1992 before it was released on VHS and only released on DVD in foreign markets (Australia put out two separate editions). That was until those noblest practitioners of cinephilia over at Criterion took a special interest in Jarmusch, releasing both Earth and his 1984 opus Stranger Than Paradise, which also includes the director's fascinating debut feature Permanent Vacation.

Throughout the course of one night, we are driven around in five separate taxi cabs that range from familiar ports of L.A. and New York City to the echoing streets of Paris and Rome to the final ride through the frozen-over metropolis of Helsinki, right as the sun is rising. In Los Angeles, a big-time agent (Gena Rowlands) tries to seduce her rough-and-tumble cab driver (an insolent Winona Ryder) into becoming an actress. While in New York, a jerky Brooklynite (the superb Giancarlo Esposito) teaches his German cab driver (Armin Mueller-Stahl) how to drive, talk, and jive correctly while also trying to escort his sister-in-law (Rosie Perez) home.

Something To Talk About Review


Grim
This is one of those reviews that's going to garner plenty of nasty mail from disgruntled readers, but I feel it's my obligation to let you know exactly what you're getting into with Something to Talk About.

If you are a female, preferably married, preferably Southern, preferably jilted by your husband, and preferably interested in horses, you'll love this film. If not, you're screwed. Something to Talk About is the story of a married, Southern, jilted female, Grace (Julia Roberts), who works for her father (Robert Duvall) at his horse-breeding ranch. When she finds husband Eddie (Dennis Quaid) with another woman, she dumps him like week-old halibut and heads off into the land of reckless self-indulgence, revenge, and wacky hijinks with her dysfunctional family.

The Skeleton Key Review


Grim

A first-rate concept for a spine-tingling tale of voodoo, hoodoo and possible hauntings in the swampy Louisiana bayou, "The Skeleton Key" is rendered impotent by bland, generic execution.

The wannabe chiller stars Kate Hudson as a New Orleans hospice nurse named Caroline who takes a job at a remote, run-down plantation manor, looking after a mute and paralyzed elderly stroke victim (played with eerie, deceptive vacancy by John Hurt) in what will probably be his last weeks of life.

Caroline is selfish, snooping and disrespectful (having an unsympathetic heroine is another of the movie's problems), so soon she beings sticking her nose where it doesn't belong -- opening attic doors that have been locked for decades and digging into the house's history. Doing so raises the ire of her patient's bitterly old-fashioned and superstitious Southern wife (Gena Rowlands), but more importantly it puts the skeptical Caroline on a path toward believing in the ghosts of lynched former servants that the old lady claims haunt the place.
