The Cannes Jewel Thief Strikes Again, This Time To The Tune Of $2.6 Million


Sharon Stone Paris Hilton

The Cannes jewellery thief is now a serial offender apparently. After last week saw the theft of about a million dollars in Chopard jewels, this week the thief (or thieves) have upped the ante, somehow getting past 80 security guards and hotel staff, to make off with a necklace, reportedly worth 2 million euros (or $2.6 million). Now those are some clever thieves. The piece belonged to Swiss jewellers De Grisogono and was in town for a party for festival attendees at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc on Tuesday, ABC News reports.

An anonymous police official commented for ABC that the piece was stolen from the exclusive resort town of Cap d'Antibes after the event, which hosted attendees like Sharon Stone and Ornella Mutti. The glamorous evening commemorated Di Grosogono’s 20th anniversary. The theft probably made the occasion even more memorable, though definitely not in the best way.

The police are on the case, but nothing else is known at this point. It isn’t even clear whether the two instances – the Chopard and De Grisogono jewellery thefts – are linked, though it seems like the likeliest scenario. More on this as the story unfolds. As for Cannes attendees – it looks like they should be on their guards.

Cannes Thief Still On The Loose: 2 Million Necklace Missing


Sharon Stone Paris Hilton

Beware: there might be a serial thief on the loose at Cannes. After a million in Chopard jewelry was reported stolen just last week, Reuters reports that this Thursday there was an even bolder theft – a diamond necklace, reportedly worth 2 million euros (or just about $2.6 million). This time, the piece was part of a collection by De Grisogono, an upmarket Swiss jeweler.

Fawaz Gruosi, the founder of the company, explained that the piece was part of an extremely valuable collection, which was displayed at the Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes outside Cannes on Tuesday night. Unlike the stolen Chopard pieces, the necklace wasn’t intended for a celebrity or the red carpet of a Cannes premiere, however Sharon Stone and Paris Hilton were among the guests at the glitzy event, where the necklace was displayed.

The necklace, as well as the other pieces, were heavily guarded, with 80 security guards on duty that night, as well as local police, hotel security, and De Grisogono staff. Obviously, the police are baffled, but they’re doing everything they can to retrieve the stolen jewels. "We don't know exactly what happened ... it was one of the most beautiful items we had," Gruosi told Reuters Television. "The police are trying to figure out what happened."

No Clothes, No Problem: Amanda Seyfried Admits To Being Unfazed By Nudie Shots In New Film


Amanda Seyfried Peter Sarsgaard Sharon Stone Hank Azaria James Franco

Amanda Seyfried's next role will see her portray one of the adult film industry's most famous (and tragic) stars in her next film and as you'd imagine, some of the scenes involved the actress rather scantily clad, if not completely nude. Fortunately for Seyfried though, she told Indiewire that she is a-okay with the scenes, and to be perfectly honest so are we (sorry).

The Les Miserables star will be portraying Linda Lovelace, who shot to porn-land fame and rest of the world notoriety when she stared in the 1972 film Deep Throat (no prizes for guessing what it's about). Seyfried admitted to the movie blog that although the nude scenes she and co-star Peter Sarsgaard are involved in were "a little strange," she was still rather unaffected by the whole thing, saying: "[Peter and I] are not shy about our private parts. We also weren't walking around with our genitals out; our bottom half genitals. That might have been a little strange for me. I don't really have any interest in people seeing my vagina. It's just a personal thing. I don't mind seeing other people's vaginas."

"Sex; we all do it," the star refreshingly added, before going on to discuss how she handled the more intimate scenes of the film (she used an icicle) and why she considers Mean Girls her best work still. You'll have to check out the full interview on Indiewire to find out more.

'Risky But It Appealed To Me': Amanda Seyfried Challenges Herself Starring As Porn Actor In 'Lovelace'


Amanda Seyfried Sharon Stone Juno Temple Peter Sarsgaard James Franco

Amanda Seyfriend is fast becoming darling of Hollywood. From humble, though hilarious beginnings in Mean Girls, she moved on to the sweeter than sweet role of Sophie Sheridan in the multi-award winning Mamma Mia!, and to playing Cosette in another extraordinarily successful musical, Les Miserables. Having played such classical or humorous roles, her starring appearance as Linda Lovelace in 'Lovelace' seems a little out of kilter, but as she told the BBC, it was a challenge she couldn't resist.

"It is risky and people did not stop reminding me of that. But I also really wanted a challenge. It appealed to me in that way," she said. Lovelace is about Linda Lovelace, the star of the 1970s porn film Deep Throat in which Lovelace played a woman skilled in "a very advanced form of fellatio," as the Guardian puts it. Lovelace became hot property in the porn market, but when she released her biography in the '80s she portrayed her life as one wrought by an abusive marriage to a man who used hypnosis to force her to make pornography. 

Clearly, Lovelace's story was a traumatic one and, while Seyfried said she wanted a challenge, she was perhaps not quite ready for the depth of the challenge that she was embarking on. "I had a hard time letting go of Linda at the end of the movie," she said. "I went places that I couldn't get out of." Also appearing in Lovelace are Sharon Stone, Peter Sarsgaard (playing Lovelace's abusive husband, Chuck Traynor), Chloe Sevigny, Juno Temple, Chris Noth and James Franco. Reviews from its Sundance Film Festival premier have been largely positive, though quisitive. It is expected to reach cinemas in July.

How Could Fitness Freak Andrew Marr, 50, Have A Stroke?


Sharon Stone Samantha Morton Hugh Hefner

Andrew Marr, the 50-year-old BBC presenter and incredibly keen runner, is recovering in hospital after suffering a stroke. The typical stroke patient is often thought of as being elderly, potentially overweight and a smoker - so what stopped the blood from running to Marr's brain correctly?

As the BBC reports, anyone of any age can suffer from a stroke, with 150,000 people in the UK having a stroke each year - a quarter of them are under 65. Risky lifestyle choices increase the chances of a stroke, including smoking, "carrying too much weight around the belly" and being too fond of alcohol. In his high pressure working environment, it is possible that a sudden peak in blood pressure could have caused Marr's stroke, though this has not be confirmed. There is also mixed evidence around the impact of drinking a lot of coffee as well as irregular heartbeats and blood pools in the heart. 

The BBC presenter is by no means the only high profile individual to suffer a stroke at an early age. The actress Sharon Stone was 44 when she was hospitalised, while Samantha Morton was even younger at 31. Legendary tennis player Rod Laver was 59 when he suffered a stroke, while Playboy magnate Hugh Hefner was in his late fifties. Dr Clare Walton from the Stroke Association said, "I would say that it is a common misconception that this is a condition of just the elderly. A quarter of strokes are in working-age people and children and babies also have strokes."

Sharon Stone Shakes Off Hospital Visit To Attend Milan Fashion Show


Sharon Stone Roberto Cavalli

Sharon Stone doesn't let things get in her way when there's fun to be had, and the actress proved this when she attended amfAR Milano 2012 last night (September 22nd) just moments after being admitted to a local hospital after suffering from migraine-like symptoms.

The Basic Instinct actress had been complaining of migraine like symptoms and was taken to hospital following a meal with her boyfriend Martin Mica. However, she stepped out on the black carpet later that night looking as though nothing had happened as she dazzled in a specially designed, cleavage bearing leather and lace gown designed by Milan-native Roberto Cavalli.

A spokesperson for the 57-year-old screen beauty told The Daily Mail website that the actress felt as though she should be safe, rather than sorry, after feeling ill and complaining of migraine-related symptoms. The source revealed that the actress was discharged from the hospital with a clean bill of health and revealed that the actress had said, "wild horses couldn't keep her away" from the event.

Irreconcilable Differences Review


Very Good
Back in the "glory days" of the mid-1990s, Irreconcilable Differences was a cable television mainstay. It played at least once every week and often ran two or three times on weekends. For whatever reason I watched it over and over again, and in the process, sort of fell in love with this totally imperfect yet sneakily lovable movie.

Over a decade after it vanished from the cable TV lazy weekend repertoire, the film is finally getting a DVD release -- fittingly, as part of a series called "The Lost Collection." After revisiting the movie, it sure is a far-fetched, silly trifle of a fairy tale, but it's still charming, and still believable in its own way. Irreconcilable Differences carries with it the same charisma that most Nancy Meyers-Charles Shyer comedies (Private Benjamin, Baby Boom, Father of the Bride) possess; these films are comfort food with a few sharp-edged nutrients added to the mix, stories about likable people who veer wildly off course but eventually find their way back to the Yellow Brick Road.

The Quick And The Dead Review


Excellent
All right, all right, I'm sorry I haven't been seeing the movies I should. I haven't seen A Simple Plan yet, I admit it. Everyone's been nagging me, bothering me about it, telling me: "James, it's such a great film." But I haven't seen it.

Anyway, that apology aside, I'm very glad I took time to watch Sam Raimi's 1995 film The Quick and the Dead.

Basic Instinct 2 Review


Bad

Paul Verhoeven, director of the original Basic Instinct, must be great in bed. The women in his films attest to this assumption. They don't just make love - they soar athletically about bedrooms and swimming pools. They don't simply orgasm - they erupt, cascade and convulse. Who can forget the otherwise forgettable Elizabeth Berkeley's rodeo pool ride atop the bucking and bullish Kyle Maclachlan in Verhoeven's surrealistically brilliant Showgirls? And no man could etch from his memory the opening of the original Basic Instinct - where a woman reaches such a state of thrill in conjugation that with her climax comes the crushing force of an ice pick into her partner's chest. Quite a release! If art imitates life and artists draw from experience, Verhoeven clearly has another skill set somewhat more impressive than his directorial abilities. Verhoeven's energy, his thrust if you will, informs Basic Instinct 2, a sequel he wisely chose to avoid.

In the tradition of hyperbolic orgasms, the opening of Basic Instinct 2 finds us in a car with Catherine Tramell (Sharon Stone) pleasuring herself with the hand of a drugged passenger while speeding through the streets of central London. Howling to her peak, Tramell drives the car through a roadblock and into the Thames. She survives. Her passenger does not. The accident and its involvement with popular author Tramell becomes a sensation and a mystery to the bottom of which detective Washburn (David Thewlis), a hard-worn London cop, seems unusually desperate to get. Tramell, in the course of the investigation, is sent to visit Dr. Michael Glass (David Morrissey) in order to undergo a psychiatric evaluation. As those viewers of the first film know, an interview with Tramell is no tame affair; an immediate attraction grows between doctor and patient that will end inevitably in blood, tears, and plenty of the good stuff that defined Verhoeven's earlier film.

Casino Review


Very Good
The way I see it, Martin Scorsese has one problem: He's in love with the sound of his own voice, as it comes out through the dialogue of films like GoodFellas and now, Casino. Clocking in at three long hours, Casino is an entertaining and engrossing film, but just drags a simple story into a sprawling, epic tale that desperately needs a little trimming.

Based on a true story, Casino is the tale of Sam Rothstein (Robert De Niro), the best of the old bookmakers, who is hand-picked by his mob bosses "Back Home" to go to Las Vegas to run the Tangiers Casino. Sam has to contend with managing the bosses' skim going out the back door, cheats at the tables, the law breathing down his neck, and strung-out hustler Ginger (Sharon Stone), whom Sam falls for, and, despite his better judgment, eventually marries. Add to the mix Nicky Santoro (Joe Pesci), who basically reprises his role from GoodFellas as a "problem solver" with a temper from hell, and it's pure chaos in the high-glamour world of 1973 Las Vegas.

Antz Review


Very Good
Every ant has his day. At least, that's what Woody Allen would have you think, in this twisted animated version of Annie Hall meets Brazil. Starting with a moody grass-scape of what turns out to be a quiet corner of Central Park, voiced-over by Allen's "Z", a hapless worker ant who feels the weight of the colony--so to speak--on his back, Antz tracks a lot like any Allen flick.

In fact, if it wasn't for all the formula-driven bad guys, perilous situations, and narrow escapes, Antz would be exactly like any other Allen film. But this is animation, and that means kid-pleasing effects must plaster the screen. Sadly, this hurts the story to the point where Antz will quickly get lost in the shuffle of animated films coming out over the next year, despite its unique touches. To make matters worse, some of the more gruesome scenes, including an ant-termite battle that would leave Private Ryan wetting himself, are decidedly not for children.

Continue reading: Antz Review

Last Dance Review


Weak
Dead Man Walking, meet Walt Disney. Sharon Stone plays it grim -- with the same embittered scowl on her face for the entire film -- and tries to convince us that she's a bona fide Death Row dweller. The plot is lifted, virtually verbatim, from Dead Man Walking, even incorporating the hostile victim's family and the strained flashbacks to "the senseless murder." While the Mouse spares us from the requisite Happy Ending, Last Dance adds nothing to this genre (what there is of a genre), and doesn't merit serious attention.

Diabolique (1996) Review


Good
I've been awaiting this update of the 1955 classic French thriller with a mixture of nervous anticipation and deep-seated dread. The original Diabolique was one of the few examples of how thrillers ought to be made...and I figured Hollywood would find some way to screw up the remake. (They did, of course.)

The story is timeless. Evil boarding school principal Guy (Chazz Palmenteri) is married to ex-nun Mia (Isabelle Adjani), a nervous "child bride" with a penchant for heart medication. Guy also has at least one mistress, the cold-as-ice Nicole (Sharon Stone), and everyone knows of and quietly accepts the affair. They all work and live under the auspices of the school, and in the darkness of its halls, a plot is hatched by Mia and Nicole to do away with Guy for good. It starts to get a little hairy when, after a seemingly perfect murder is pulled off, things start to seem not-so-perfect and questions over potential witnesses and the actual life-or-death-ness of Guy begin to surface.

Continue reading: Diabolique (1996) Review

Simpatico Review


OK
I love a good thriller. And no one makes good thrillers any more. Enter Simpatico, with a cast boasting both Nick Nolte and Jeff Bridges, not to mention Albert Finney and Sharon Stone -- all set among the intrigue of a scandal involving horse racing, blackmail, and steamy sex. How could this miss?

By being as straightforward as, well, a horse race. It's just a big loop from start to finish. No real surprises along the way, just jockeying for position. Simpatico finishes right where it started, with a time of 106 minutes.

Continue reading: Simpatico Review

The Muse Review


Excellent
Albert Brooks, who last gave us a wryly cynical meditation on mother-and-son relationships with Mother, turns now to a wryly cynical meditation on Hollywood and inspiration with the aptly titled The Muse.

Brooks plays Steven Phillips, a moderately successful Hollywood screenwriter who suddenly finds he's lost "his edge." In desperation he turns to friend Jack (Bridges), who introduces him to a girl named Sarah (Stone), whom Jack claims is a muse. Or rather, one of The Muses, a source of divine inspiration.

Continue reading: The Muse Review

Gloria (1999) Review


Terrible
A shocking must-avoid. Sharon Stone at her worst (and that's bad!). An awful, ill-conceived idea, remade from an equally bad 1980 John Cassavetes film by the same name. None of these phrases quite gets across the horror that is Gloria, a film that has to resort to Sharon Stone's cleavage to move copies of the video (see the box cover if you don't believe me). Sadly, said cleavage is -- by far -- the best part of this film, a pedestrian remake of a Cassavetes movie regarding a brazen, New Yoikah ex-con (Stone "If yah evah luvved me...") and her charge, a little boy on the run from the mob. Yech.

Sphere Review


Weak
Sphere is one of those movies I hate to review more than I hate to watch. On one hand, you have the numerous good aspects of the film (top notch cast, etc.). On the other hand, you have a plot that can't be passed off in the world of celluloid.

Based on the novel by Michael Crichton, Sphere concerns a team called the ULF team (Unknown Life Form). These people, hand picked by Norman Johnson (Dustin Hoffman) during the cold war, are a team designed to make contact with alien life. On it are a mathmatician (Samuel L. Jackson), an astrophysicist (Liev Schrieber), a biologist (Sharon Stone), and a shrink who didn't take the whole thing seriously and picked people to be at each other's throats (Dustin Hoffman).

Continue reading: Sphere Review

Cold Creek Manor Review


Terrible
Cold Creek Manor - the heavily marketed new thriller by Touchstone Pictures that stars some of Hollywood's most gifted actors - is without a single creative element. Put simply, it's one of the worst films of the year.

After their son is injured walking on the bustling streets of New York City, Cooper and Leah Tilson (Dennis Quaid and Sharon Stone) inexplicably decide to move their family to the "safer" confines of the countryside (because danger certainly doesn't lurk out there). The house they buy is Cold Creek Manor, a massive property that is in complete disrepair and requires more work to fix than humanly possible. It's not exactly clear why they choose this shabby house; the only clue given is that Cooper, a documentary filmmaker, finds the photos and documents left behind as intriguing subject matter for his next low budget project.

Continue reading: Cold Creek Manor Review

Total Recall Review


Good
Arnold Schwarzenegger made a smart bet with Paul Verhoeven's futuristic splatter-pic Total Recall. Unlike most of the hulking killers from his body of work (The Terminator, Conan the Barbarian), befuddled construction worker Douglas Quaid is at a loss over how to proceed with his memory-bending dilemma. No amount of physical brawn will crack the central question: Who am I? Am I who I think I am, and if I'm someone different, does that mean I can move beyond my former crimes? The sleek band of assassins are chasing him through the Orwellian streets, and poor Quaid may be kicking the hell out of them, but Arnie is as terrified as he's ever been. Inside of this mountain is a mousy everyman -- he never asked to become a superspy.

Quaid should be A-OK. He seems satisfied with his job as a construction worker and is married to a seemingly docile wife (Sharon Stone). He gets on well with his fellow employees, though his head is often in the clouds as he dreams of Mars. How to solve the problem? A handy-dandy trip to the false memory transplant center will make all his dreams come true, asking the technogeeks to make him believe he's a top secret agent en route to Mars on a mission (with the woman of his fantasies being a sassy brunette, as opposed to his demure blonde wife). No sooner has he received the implanted memory than he starts to freak out, beating people up, claiming that he is not Quaid. When he wakes up, he's himself again but unexplained killers are out to destroy him, his wife cheerfully tries to knife him in the kitchen, and videotapes of "Quaid" appear, telling him he's an indispensable part of the underground resistance fighting corrupt political figure Copenhagen (Ronny Cox, perfectly smarmy).

Continue reading: Total Recall Review

Picking Up The Pieces Review


Bad
Normally, I'd say any movie that features Woody Allen as a homocidal maniac is okay in my book, if only Picking Up the Pieces didn't bore you to tears en route to the funny stuff, which consists solely of Allen's spare one-liners. The plot, involving a New Mexico community that rallies around Allen's dead wife's severed hand thanks to its miracle-granting powers, shows a ton of promise, but never delivers. Note to Alfonso Arau: more boobs.

Off The Menu: The Last Days Of Chasen's Review


Very Good
No one outside of Hollywood has any business knowing anything about Chasen's. And yet, here's a movie about the restaurant that everyone enamored with the high life ought to see.

This Hollywood landmark closed in 1995 after nearly 60 years in business, and the stories inside are legion.

Continue reading: Off The Menu: The Last Days Of Chasen's Review

Catwoman Review


Bad
After Catwoman, I feel I've learned a lot about the furry beasts. For instance, did you know most cats are amazing martial artists? Or have C cups? Or have an innate sense of style that makes them be able to go from the last girl in New York that can't match her clothes to a magazine model? Or have the self-confidence to let them look and act like they're auditioning for Showgirls? It's all true!

Catwoman is the result of four actors without a leg to stand on, three lonely writers with an unhealthy obsession over leather and cats, and one director with a problematic penchant for photogrammetry.

Continue reading: Catwoman Review

Searching For Debra Winger Review


Good
It's either sad or interesting or -- something -- when the only man in a movie is Roger Ebert. Rosanna Arquette, tired of hearing that old aphorism that there are no good parts for women in Hollywood, takes up a video camera and records interviews with some three dozen actresses at various ages. (The title invokes Debra Winger's recent retirement and reclusiveness -- though since this film she returned to the cinema.)

Continue reading: Searching For Debra Winger Review

The Mighty Review


Very Good
Sentimental and mushy, yet heartwarming despite your best efforts to the contrary, The Mighty was termed by Sharon Stone as her proudest moment of 1998. Never mind she has about 5 minutes of screen time. Gillian Anderson's hooker is the real gem of the movie, which tells the tale of a friendship between a dim hulk of a boy and a crippled, yet brainy kid. As improbable as any film I've seen, but at least not awful to watch.
