The Guardianthinks Tom Cruise should ditch the heroics and play an unsavory character again.We heartily agree.He seemed to lose all his artistic ambition (if not his general ambition) right around the time of the Kidman divorce.It's been almost a two decade stretch of franchise heroesonlynow with rare exceptions likeRock of AgesandCollateral.

THRPatty Jenkins not yet signed on forWonder Woman 2.The internet at large seems convinced WB/DC will throw money at her.Was the internet not paying attention when other female directors were dumped after launching big grossing franchises (think50 Shades of GreyandThe Twilight Saga)?I'm not saying this will happen again.There's more pressure and scrutiny now on this topic.I'm just saying it's more of a possibility than people are admitting given Hollywood's history of treating female directors much differently than their male counterparts.

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do (Six Times)

[Here's a reader/guest contributor to share something aimed at those of you who are single andnotfeeling the Valentine spirit!-Nathaniel]


My name is Adam and around the time that I began visiting The Film Experience,亚博主页nearly a decade ago during my freshman year of high school,I had my first serious crush on a guy.While we were never technically official,I knew being rejected for a virtual profile of someone he'd never met wasprobably notthe greatest bookend to a first romance.The years since then have allowed me to be the brunt of even more uncomfortable and sometimes excruciatingly painful rejections but I have also had the opportunity to willfully,and sometimes unwillfully,be the asshole initiator of a break up.As the cliché goes,breaking up is hard to do.

The movies have always been my go-to resource to help me pick up the pieces.The following scenes have helped me,and they might help you,to put that nearly empty pint of Haagen-Dazs back in the freezer,put on something other than sweatpants,and get back out there.

GALECA & GLAAD: Gay 'Best of the Year' Honors

Though I complain about the proliferation of awards groups some of them serve more of a purpose than others,even if they're also lining up to honor the same things as every other group.Like AIDS related Best Picture nomineeDallas Buyers Clubtwhich some gay critics don't likeat alland on principal but which factors into both of the gay-specific awards recently announced.

Now,the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation has madereallysuspect endorsements over the years (Let us not speak ofI Know Pronounce You Chuck & Larry) but they've also highlighted and fought against a very real problem so you have to respect their greasy wheel existence if not always their execution of message.

As per usual,GLAAD will hold a bicoastal bifurcated awards ceremony,first in Los Angeles in April and then in New York in May,long after Oscar season is over.GLAAD's film (and other medium) nominees as well as the nominees and winners of GALECA (the Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association) are after the jump with commentaryand in some cases links.It's always bugged me that when magazines,blogs,and web articles are nominated for prizes the nominations list rarely have an easy way to check out the nominees so I figure I'm doing a public service by including them.You're welcome.

Cesar Academy Nominates French President's Mistress!(Who cares about movies anyway?)

Julien,your french correspondent,here to discuss the César nominations.

OUTRAGE !Twitter was in uproar this morning when the nominees for the Best Actress César were announced,and the name Adèle Exarchopoulos was nowhere to be seen.While Léa Seydoux made the cut for her arguably supporting role,Adèle's astounding lead performance inBlue is the Warmest Colorwas relegated to the Most Promising Actress category.

Before you raise your pitchforks,consider this perfectly logical explanation: since Tahar Rahim won both the Best Actor and Most Promising Actor gongs forA Prophetin 2010,the rules were altered so that a single performance can only be nominated in a single category -the one which collects the most votes.Fair enough César,but when a category which is supposed to promote new talent prevents the year's most celebrated performance to be nominated in its rightful place,you're clearly doing something wrong.

All the nominees and a lot of gay drama and political mischiefafter the jump...
