"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Posterized: Regina Hall,finally a star

by Nathaniel R

With the new comedyLittleopening today in theaters and last year's beloved indieSupport the Girlsstill fresh in the memory,let's talk Regina Hall.

The talented 48 year-old actress has been kicking around in the movies and (occasionally) on television for 20 years now,but it's only very recently that she's come into full stardom.Or,to put it another way,it's only very recently that Hollywood has realized that she's a star.Usually with slow-burn stardom,the charisma and talent were there all along but it takes a big hit movie,or a breakthrough signature part,or the cumulation of multiple moderate hits for that too happen.

It's a little of all of those with Regina Hall who spent the first decade of her career mostly well-down the hiearchical cast lists of ensemble comedies and then finally began to crack leading roles.

How many of her films have you seen?(I've included her two biggest television roles as well).Let's look at all the posters after the jump...

Box Office: Everything Is (Still) Awesome!

Amirhere,with the long weekend's box office report.It was Valentine's so romantic flicks opened,one of which didn't do too well financially.But enough aboutRoboCop!How about thatAbout Last Night?It's been a few weeks since the last time we were collectively surprised that a "black"film did well at the box office,so let's go at it again: can you believe that a film with a non-white cast can sell tickets too?Unbelievable,no?It turns out Hollywood doesn't need to cast white people in every role,not even in all romantic comedies.(Perhaps not coincidentally,the last rom-com to do this well,Think Like a Man,starred three of the actors in this quartet: Kevin Hart,Regina Hall and Michael Ealy.)

oh,wait.that's not right somehow

The other new release targeted to the lovey-dovey crowd wasEndless Love– three 80s remakes in one weekend is a new low for the creatively constipated Hollywood – and according toBox Office Mojo,it nearly broke a record for the absurd title of "the most front-loaded release of all time";56% of the film's gross was pocketed on Friday.The LEGO Movieheld on to the throne,though,and after two weeks,is already a major contender for 2014's year-end top ten.I re-watched it and it was even funnier and smarter than I'd remembered --  we already have our first solid contender in the best animated film race.I also watchedBlue Jasminea second time and this one also improved significantly upon a revisit.Later tonight,I'll be off to see Palestine's Oscar nominee,Omar.(You can always follow everything I see hereon this page.)

What did you watch this weekend?
