In Fashion Terms, The Independent Spirit Awards Have The Oscars Beat


Lupita Nyong'o Angela Bassett Anna Kendrick Ming-Na Wen Jared Leto

Tonight is Oscar night, which means celebrities are expected to amp up the glamour and sport the latest in couture for their trips down the red carpet. But at last night’s Independent Spirit awards, they were free to let down their hair (or sport the messiest of pixie cuts as the trend seems to be) and spread their quirky fashion wings. If you’re into it (who isn’t?) read on for a rundown of the best looks.

Lupita Nyong'o, Independent Spirit Awards
Incidentally, Nyong'o's outfit matched her shiny new Supporting actress award.

We can’t start a fashion rundown this season without talking about Lupita Nyong’o. Look, the woman just knows how to rock an outfit – she’s worn bright colors and neutrals, gowns and short numbers, patterns, prints and solid colors and she looks flawless (resisting the temptation to hashtag it). This time it was a silk crocodile-printed Stella McCartney romper which she paired with grey suede Casadei heels, a Devi Kroell clutch, and Neil Lane jewels. We’ll stop listing designer names now, but just look at the outfit.

Getting Ready For SHIELD Ahead Of Tonight's Premiere - Who's Watching?


Joss Whedon Ming-Na Wen ABC

It’s been called the first network superhero show to rival Arrow, which was a surprise success in its own right. That’s right, Agents of SHIELD debuts tonight on ABC, taking place after the monumental battle that left Midtown Manhattan in ruins at the end of Marvel’s The Avengers.

Joss Wheldon is the executive producer of the show

Perhaps the most important thing to say is that Joss Whedon is very much involved, in fact, he directed the first episode, which has received warm reviews so far. The show, while carrying on from the last Avengers movie, is totally separate from the films; it exists in the same universe.

Video - Ming-Na Wen In Beautiful Blue At The InStyle Summer Soiree - Part 13


'ER' star Ming-Na Wen poses for the paparazzi in a smart, blue-dappled dress and peep-toe heels as she arrives at the 13th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree held at the Mondrian Hotel in Los Angeles. Also seen arriving is 'Criminal Minds' actress AJ Cook looking less colourful in white but equally as sophisticated.

Ming-Na Wen stars as Melinda May in the new Joss Whedon Marvel superhero TV series 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' alongside Clark Gregg, Brett Dalton and Chloe Bennet. Her character has been described as an 'ace pilot' and 'a weapons expert'.

Joss Whedon has spoken about Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the pilot of which he has co-written and directed.

Whedon has co-written the pilot episode with his brother Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen (Jed Whedon's wife). The pilot was revealed to fans at the San Diego Comic-Con last month. Whedon not only co-wrote the pilot but directed it. It is unknown how much input Whedon will have should the series go ahead, however he is confident that "I've got the best writers and actors I could so I could do this, and that's the best way to run a show."

Push Review


Grim
In the first minute of Push, a character utters a line that's all but verbatim: "Save the cheerleader; save the world." With the film's unapologetic intent to lift freely from Heroes and its progenitor X-Men firmly established, we're then treated to virtually nothing new in the ordinary-folks-with-extraordinary-abilities subgenre.

Opening credit narration explains that there exist people born with special powers they don't necessarily want, and since the '40s an entity called Division has been trying to round them up and turn them into super-soldiers. There are a handful of abilities, and if you have one, you get a catchy name. Watchers can see the future. Pushers can put thoughts in your head. Sniffers can find out what you've been up to by smelling your stuff (really). And so on.

Mulan Review


Good
In the rush to contrast the early-nineties Disney golden age (Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King) with the current crop of underperformers (Treasure Planet, Brother Bear, Home on the Range) that have resulted in Disney's foolhardy decision to jettison hand-drawn animation, some pretty decent films have been lost in the shuffle. Disney's Mulan, for example, is a beautifully drawn and exciting little adventure movie from 1998 (when it was a decent-sized hit, too). It's no kind of classic, but who says Disney Animation can't put out something minor now and again?

In their own ways, the late-nineties Disney cartoons (which include the similarly mythical Hercules and Tarzan) take risks in stylization and subject matter. The semi-experiment here is to craft a story around a strong female protagonist who is not, on any level, a princess (even intelligent and bookish Belle in Beauty and the Beast is defined by a love story with a prince, handsome or not). The title character (voiced by Ming-Na (now sans the Wen)) masquerades as a man in order to take her aging father's place in the Chinese army; it won't spoil your enjoyment to know that she isn't instantly killed and forgotten.

The Joy Luck Club Review


Excellent
SCENE: Two guys shooting baskets at a basketball court. The conversation is mundane, until GUY #1 starts talking about movies.

GUY #1: I don't know how he doesn't sleep with Famke Janssen in that movie, it's friggin' mystifying to me. She's all legs and hair.

One Night Stand Review


Grim
Another oddity from auteur director/jazz musician Mike Figgis (Leaving Las Vegas), this time with Wesley Snipes in a loveless marriage, tempted by Nastassja Kinski. Nastassja Kinski? Yep, still trying to play the femme fatale and not doing a great job of it. Ming-Na Wen has a puzzling role, and Downey's dying friend subplot only distracts the viewer even further from the fact that there's not much going on here. Despite a couple of obvious twists, One Night Stand never really goes anywhere new. Safe to avoid this one.

Tempting Fate Review


Weak
This is as close as you'll get to seeing science fiction on the Lifetime Movie Network, a strange and not-terrible love story (natch) that takes us to another freakin' dimension! Tate Donovan is a doctor who gets a do-over at life when his buddy (Matt Craven) invents a machine that transports you to another dimension. Sure, he gets to hook up with perpetually-in-a-low-cut-blouse Grace Phillips, but how does he feel about all the nerve stapling and Running Man-like reality gaming? Not so good, as it turns out.
