Selma Blair Hospitalized After Bizarre Plane Meltdown


Selma Blair

Selma Blair has reportedly had a bad reaction to some medication this week after what sounds like a mental breakdown forced staff on the airplane she was flying on to remove her from the flight on a stretcher. Her current condition is as yet unknown.

Two And A Half Men, CBS Announce Lesbian Character Jenny


Charlie Sheen Angus T. Jones Selma Blair

After ten seasons of Two and A Half Men on CBS, public breakdowns from two-out-of-three of the main cast and a high-profile replacement, Chuck Lorre thinks it’s time to address the plot, just to mix things up a bit.

And considering Two and A Half Men can basically be called Three Men, or Three Half Men depending on your take on the comedy, Lorre reckons a 21-year-old lesbian from the Big Apple should just about do it. It might just have to be called Two Men One Woman, as Angus T. Jones is pretty much out for season 11.

"I think it would be great have that voice on the show from a different perspective," Lorre told reporters at TCA. "The show has had enough testosterone to last a lifetime." Jenny will be Charlie Harper’s – previously played by Charlie Sheen – ‘illegitimate’ daughter.

In The Case Of Sheen Vs. Blair, Charlie Sheen Is The "Winning" Party


Charlie Sheen Selma Blair

Selma Blair complained in private about Anger Management co-star Charlie Sheen’s ways. Selma Blair got fired from Anger Management. There might just be a pattern there. So, the full story, according to the folks at TMZ, starts with Blair unofficially complaining about her co-star’s work ethic. At some point, Charlie apparently got wind of this and he went straight to the show’s producers. Since Sheen has a stake in the FX show, predicting how this one would play out wasn’t all that difficult at all.

Lo and behold, today an official announcement was released by Lionsgate, the studio behind the show, saying, "We are confirming that Selma Blair will not be returning to Anger Management and we wish her the very best."

The very best, as long as she has nothing to do with Charlie Sheen apparently. This decision is in stark contrast to the policies of Sheen’s former employers – the team behind “Two and a Half Men.” On that show, Sheen, who was the show’s biggest star, earned himself an ultimatum and later on, a firing, with his partying ways and frequent intoxication. Must be nice for him to call the shots for once. It’s not so nice for Blair, though, who is now, presumably, in need of a new job.

Charlie Sheen Tries To Get Selma Blair Booted Off Anger Management


Charlie Sheen Selma Blair

Charlie Sheen is rich and famous enough that he can afford to set his own rules, which is exactly what he’s doing with Anger Management and his co-star Selma Blair. According to TMZ, Sheen has set an ultimatum for the creators of the series – ether she walks, or I do. Looks like he’s being serious as well. The reason behind this sudden rift between Sheen and Blair is that Charlie believes his co-star has been talking about him behind his back.

To prove how serious he is with this, Sheen has given Anger Management producers a somewhat realistic demands. He knows that a character can’t just be kicked off in a matter of days, so he is just asking that the show’s team starts drawing up an exit strategy for Blair asap. If not, Sheen is prepared to sacrifice his massive paycheck (between $75 and $200 million for 100 episodes, depending on syndication) just to get his way.

With that kind of ultimatum, the show’s producers are most likely trapped between a rock and a hard place, but if it really does come down to Blaire or Sheen, the actor’s female co-star isn’t likely to fair too well in that bargain. Meanwhile, she didn’t appear on set, yesterday, but this could be due to her not being scheduled to be on set. When asked by paparazzi about the whole mess, Blair replied with a vague: "I don't know anything." Neither does anyone else, really.

Charlie Sheen Hands 'Anger Management' Bosses Ultimatum; Fire Selma Blair Or I Quit


Charlie Sheen Selma Blair

Charlie Sheen really doesn't get along with his co-star on the FX sitcom Anger Management - the actress Selma Blair - so much so in fact that the actor has reportedly handed the show's producers an ultimatum; wither she goes or he does. According to TMZ, the actor is determined to see Blair get booted form the show and is so bent on seeing the back of her that he is willing to put his own position on the show in jeopardy.

Sheen is apparently feuding with Blair because he heard that the actress is slating him behind his back, and clearly that is something that Sheen doesn't take kindly to. Charlie reportedly confronted the producers on the show and handed them his request, demanding that the changes start on that day or else. Whilst it is unclear whether his demand have been met yet, Blair was absent from the show's set on Monday (June 17) and it is believed that she isn't there today either, although it is unclear whether she was simply not scheduled to work these days. When asked about the situation this morning, Blair replied sying that she doesn't even know what's happening herself.

According to reports, Charlie acknowledged the complications of writing a character out from a show, but was steadfast with his demands and told the show's bosses that they need to figure out a solution to the problem before he starts to reconsider his commitment to AM. Neither the actor nor FX have commented on the situation in public yet, but it is believed that the network are working with Sheen to see that he gets what he wants and Blair is kicked off the show.

Hot Tickets! This Weekend's US Movie Releases: Skyfall, Lincoln, In Their Skin, Nature Calls


Daniel Craig Sam Mendes Daniel Day Lewis Joaquin Phoenix Selma Blair Joshua Close James D'Arcy Johnny Knoxville Patton Oswalt

With the drama and devastation that befell the East Coast of America, with the arrival of Hurricane Sandy last week, US movie fans seem to have opted for the feel-good factor with their box office choices. Wreck It Ralph currently sits atop the US Box Office chart but the generation-spanning animation should prepare to be ousted this week, with the release of two major players: Skyfall and Lincoln.

Skyfall has already been hailed as the best Bond movie ever. Directed by Sam Mendes, Skyfall marks the 50th anniversary of Bond movies and has already proved to be a box office sensation in the UK and Europe. There’s a question mark hanging over how much longer Daniel Craig will play Bond, which is only adding to the sense of urgency in getting to the movie theaters to check out Skyfall.

The Deal (2005) Review


Weak
It's an old adage that you "write what you know," which is very much the case here. First-time screenwriter Ruth Epstein is a 9-year veteran investment banker with Wall Street's Goldman Sachs. As a legal and financial negotiator, she knows mergers backwards. What she trips up on is translating the language of high stakes finance into intelligible drama.

Most of us couldn't tell the difference between a back-end hedge and a backhoe. So, when Delaney & Strong's hot shot investment banker Tom Grover (Christian Slater) is asked to manage a Russian oil company called Black Star in a $20 billion sale to Condor Oil & Gas, the technical details are about as clear as, well... a barrel of crude.

Hellboy II: The Golden Army Review


Excellent
Get in a discussion about comic-book movies and someone will indubitably bring up this theory: Part one of a comic-book movie anthology is always just OK; the series peaks with part two; and in part three (usually the final chapter) everything falls apart. (Think X-Men, Spider-man, and Superman). Hellboy II only furthers this theory. Part one, though visually sensational, delivered a weak jab in terms of its story, characters, and writing. But its sequel connects with a mighty punch, delivering everything you could possibly want from a summer blockbuster and more.

Hellboy II takes the fantastic make-up artistry, creature creation, and set design that we grew fond of in Pan's Labyrinth and combines all of these elements with mindblowing CGI and stunning choreography. The script this time around is sharp and witty; you'll be laughing for most of this movie (which is good, because Hellboy II would look silly if it took itself too seriously). Most importantly, the movie contains some of the best (i.e., least-fake-looking) action sequences I've ever seen in a comic-book movie, and lots of them, too, which makes it even better than Iron Man, its biggest summer contender next to the upcoming Dark Knight.

Feast Of Love Review


Very Good
In Godard's Contempt, Michel Piccoli explains the depth of his love for Brigitte Bardot as "totally... tenderly... tragically." The characters in Robert Benton's autumnal meditation on the meaning of love, Feast of Love, all dive into love with blinders on like Piccoli, drowning in their own respective seas of love.

Bradley (Greg Kinnear) is an affable, eternally optimistic schlimazel who runs Jitters, a tiny coffee shop in an Oregon college town, a guy that burbles out statements like, "I think love is everything; the only meaning we have to this crazy dream." Bradley is so likeable and easygoing that he is ripe to be trampled upon by the love beast and he is. Twice. First, his wife Kathryn (Selma Blair) leaves him for another woman. He then falls head over heels in love with cool-drink-of-water real-estate agent Diana (Radha Mitchell), who ends up marrying Bradley, despite her continuing to engage in carnal relations with David (Billy Burke). Bradley relates his stretch of news from the lovelorn to his friend Harry (Morgan Freeman), Harry calmly telling Bradley, "At least this time it's with a guy."

The Alibi Review


Weak
Distraction is one of Hollywood's greatest assets. People are easily distracted by damn near anything, and in movies it becomes crucial. Story doesn't quite make sense? Make an explosion or a tidal wave. Character development not going so well? Throw a love story in and a sex scene for good measure. If you make things complicated enough, the audience really has nowhere to go and just takes things as they come, allowing for some absolutely implausible things to happen. For Kurt Matilla and Matt Checkowski's The Alibi, distraction is the name of the game, but it's all in the name of fun.Steve Coogan, in what seems destined to be only his first Hollywood film, plays Ray Elliott, a man who has built a business around making it safe for people to cheat on their spouses. Through contacts and an outlandishly complex phone and computer system, Elliott has set up alibis for literally hundreds of people who need a quick romp in the sack. While handling his favorite client, Bob (a cheeky James Brolin), Ray decides to hire Lola (Rebecca Romijn) as his new assistant and is asked to handle one last personal case for Bob: an alibi for his son Wendell. As Wendell is getting his freak on in the clear, he accidentally kills the girl he's with and Ray is forced to cover it up, something he vows never to do. Soon enough, the girl's boyfriend (John Leguizamo), a cop (Debi Mazar), and a Mormon assassin (Sam Elliott) are all after Ray and he has to mislead all of them to make sure he can quit and run away with Lola, who has indeed fallen for him even though they only have a handful of scenes together (a largely undisputed problem with many romantic subplots).With a runtime just a tad shy of 90 minutes, The Alibi can't handle all these characters, even if it all just comes back to Ray. Talented actors like Leguizamo, Selma Blair, and the great Elliott play their parts well but are given no room to dig into the roles. In fact, the structure of the film introduces each of these characters as a threat then moves straight into how they get duped by Ray. Writer Noah Hawley seems so interested in the quirkiness and silliness of his characters that he doesn't take time to really bring them to life and make them work their mojo on the film.What keeps the film from being a disaster is Coogan, who gives Ray so much wise-ass, dry-as-a-martini charm that we are simply enamored with laughter every time he comes on screen. Although he seems more at home with indie masterpieces like 24 Hour Party People and Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story, Coogan has an odd way of keeping us interested in things when Matilla, Checkowski, and cinematographer Enrique Chediak are just fine playing things safe and harmless. In the end, the problem comes down to conflict: there is none. The minute danger is introduced to Ray or the storyline, it becomes clear that Ray can handle it and that there really is no threat at all. Therefore, none of the characters stick, because we know they're all just small-timers compared to Ray. But as far as distraction goes, Coogan has got the whole game wired.

Dallas 362 Review


Good
Scott Caan wrote and directed this film about, um, himself and his erstwhile brother Rusty (Shawn Hatosy), two lovable toughs/borderline losers determined to make something good of their lives. That is, if they can stop fighting in bars and working for the local bookie as enforcer muscle. The meandering film is well meaning but derivative of many twentysomething-ennui indies, though it's bolstered by a fun performance by Jeff Goldblum as a stoner shrink and Kelly Lynch as the boys' mom, caught topless (and in bed with Goldblum) in just about every other scene she's in.

A Dirty Shame Review


Excellent
Ultra-trashy provocateur John Waters returns to crude, campy form with A Dirty Shame, a risqué, ribald NC-17 sex-a-thon that finds the iconoclastic director reveling in his most beloved vices. The story of a frigid housewife who, because of an accidental head injury, becomes indoctrinated into a gang of raging sex addicts, Waters' ultra-vulgar comedy about fornicating buffoons and boobs is both a sarcastic rebuke to the traditional notion of "family values" and a heartfelt paean to Baltimore's freakish misfit population. Barely resembling the director's exasperatingly toothless Pecker and half-baked Cecil B. DeMented, the film - a delirious explosion of genitalia jokiness and raunchy social satire that's coated in an incongruous sheen of '50s-era movie mannerisms - is as nasty as it wants to be.

Sylvia Stickles (Tracey Ullman) is a grumpy, prudish convenience store employee who can't stand her husband Vaughn's (Chris Isaak) sexual advances and is ashamed of her stripper daughter Caprice's (Selma Blair) insanely enormous fake breasts, which the young harlot willingly displays (at least, before being put under house arrest for indecent exposure) down at the local biker bar under the stage name "Ursula Udders." Sylvia is disgusted by the rampant public displays of affection infecting her quiet town, yet after suffering a concussion, a strapping mechanic named Ray-Ray (Johnny Knoxville) does some voodoo on her libido, transforming Sylvia into an unhinged sex-aholic destined - as the Christ-like Ray-Ray preaches to his choir of fetishistic cohorts - to discover a truly unique new sexual act. With the rallying cry "Let's Go Sexin'!", Sylvia and Ray-Ray orchestrate a debauched sexual revolution against the square "Neuters" who - led by Sylvia's mother Big Ethel (Suzanne Shepherd) and Marge the Neuter (Waters regular Mink Stole) - have organized a counter-coalition of the "moral," and Waters, through the sheer abundance of explicit material on display, goes for the jugular (or somewhere slightly lower) in his attempt to appall and offend.

Continue reading: A Dirty Shame Review

Cruel Intentions Review


Very Good
From a raw material standpoint, you can't get much better than Dangerous Liaisons. Wisely, this 90's updating of Liaisons, Cruel Intentions, is quite faithful to the original. And woe be unto those who enter Cruel Intentions thinking this is a date movie.

The story so far: Kathryn (Gellar) and Sebastian (Phillippe) are spoiled, ultra-rich, rival half-siblings living in posh Upper East Side Manhattan. How does such a child while away the day? Well, sexual conquests of unsuspecting lesser-thans is a damn good start. On a whim, Kathryn challenges Sebastian to the ultimate test: deflower puritanical virgin Annette (Witherspoon) and he can have Kathryn as a prize.

Continue reading: Cruel Intentions Review

Girl Review


Good
Dominique Swain jumps from one Lolita to another with Girl, this made-for-cable romp about a brainy beauty virgin who decides to let it all slut-out with the local grunge-rock hero (Flanery). What lessons does she learn along the way? I never really figured that out... but for some reason, I didn't completely hate the film -- maybe because Swain is so damn cute.

Brown's Requiem Review


Good
Relax, Fritz. It's Chinatown.

Drawing from every noir cliche in the book (drinking binges are punctuated by ghostly voice-overs... awesome), Brown's Requiem (based on a James Ellroy novel) is a virtual remake of Chinatown, with its deeply flawed P.I. hero (Michael Rooker), mysterious femme fatale (Selma Blair), and a conspiracy that works its way up the ranks of Los Angeles society.

Continue reading: Brown's Requiem Review

Down To You Review


Bad
Down to You was a case of adding insult to injury.

The injury was having to see this film at all. I would rather suffer whiplash in a VW bug than sit through this film again. The insult was that all through this film, I had to listen to three annoying teens who threw popcorn (which often landed on me).

Continue reading: Down To You Review

Highway Review


OK
Er, what?

This Gen-X road trip has an interesting performance from the always-engaging Jared Leto, plus small and hilarious turns from the likes of Jeremy Piven, but overall this film is a nonsensical dud. Ostensibly, it's about a run to Seattle brought on when Leto's Jack gets caught in bed with a mobster's woman. Of course, the mobsters give chase.

Continue reading: Highway Review

Legally Blonde Review


Good
You'd have to be legally intoxicated not to realize that Legally Blonde is little more than Clueless goes to college. Yet, unlike most other teen-to-twenties translations, Legally Blonde manages to maintain a certain sense of charm, while casting off any sense of dignity Reese Witherspoon attempts to maintain.

Blonde, as my UA ticket stub so proudly dubbed it, stars Reese Witherspoon as Elle Woods, a blonde sorority babe with fashion as a major and cuteness as a minor. But when her boyfriend jumps ship to find a more appropriately intelligent brunette, she sends in a Harvard application and follows him to law school.

Continue reading: Legally Blonde Review

Pretty Persuasion Review


Excellent
In a time when the collected works of Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan have looked like they could suck out whatever feeble life is left in the high school film, along comes a black-hearted piece of nastiness like Pretty Persuasion to remind us that, yes, nothing can simultaneously shock and entertain quite so well as a teenager let loose.

It must be said that things don't begin well, however, with its focus the film's star bitch, 15-year-old Kimberly Joyce (Evan Rachel Wood), who looks to be the queen of her snotty private high school in Beverly Hills. Appearing at first to be the result of some hideous experiment whereby Reese Witherspoon's Election spunk and drive was spliced with the power-lusting evil of at least a couple of the Heathers, Kimberly soon shows herself to be an entirely different sort of villain. In the process of escorting a quiet new Arab student, Randa Azzouni (Adi Schnall), around campus and explaining to her the facts of life and a clinical cost/benefit analysis of the two of them being friends (Randa gets to hang out with one of the school's stars, while Kimberly thinks she looks prettier standing next to Randa), Kimberly drops in this little nugget, "I have respect for all races. But I'm really happy to have been born white." She then proceeds to list, in descending order, the races she would prefer to be, and then patiently explains to Randa - in her flat, rational, almost toneless voice - exactly why Arab would be her last choice ("No offence.").

Continue reading: Pretty Persuasion Review

Hellboy Review


Good
You can't help but dig Hellboy the character - born a demon, summoned by Nazis, saved by Americans, raised to fight otherworldly evil creatures, and played by Ron Perlman.

What you feel about Hellboy the movie is an altogether different topic.

Continue reading: Hellboy Review

Kill Me Later Review


Terrible
Just about scrapes bottom, if for no other reason than the obnoxious camerawork and editing which has every scene re-enacted rapid-fire multiple times from multiple angles, usually with pulsing music over the whole thing. The story is wholesale idiotic, too: bank robber takes suicidal bank clerk hostage; she demands her death, he refuses. Oh, the hilarity! Anyway, Mr. Lustig, this isn't a music video, pal. Get it together.
