The Hairpinon kissing and 'disgusting intimacy'.Interesting article but be warned of really gross photos that may or may not be from an X-Files episode that's name dropped.(I lovekissing.I once toyed with starting a series on it withthis classic post on Jake Gyllenhaalbut good god that was a ton of work.)

Showtune to Go...
Feeling oppressed by superheroes of late,I suddenly remembered one of my very favorite songs fromThe Rocky Horror Picture Show.I seriouslylovethis song (Yeah,I went through aRocky Horrorphase one year as a teenager) and strangely YouTube has very little use for it.Is it because of its lack of fame since it was axed from the original cut of the movie?I found one good clip from a performance in Jacksonville Florida withRoss Frontzand Jessica Alexander doing Brad and Janet...good voices!

/VarietyToni Collette romantic comedyLucky Themgets a distributor.This is how massive the TIFF selection  is each year.I did not even know that Toni,one of my very favorite actors,even had a movie playing there!

Finally,/Filmshares the shortlists for the newFantastic Fourcast.The weird thing is that though I like nearly every actor and actress mentioned I think most of them are pretty terrible choices for those roles.Except for maybeMargo Robbieas Sue Storm.Interesting that her career is suddenly hot after a failed tv show (Pan Am).It's gotta be buzz about her sexcapades inThe Wolf of Wall Street,right?I think my problem in picturing a successful Fantastic Four movie is that that comic book property has,like Wonder Woman,a retro feel.I don't mean that as a bad thing but Hollywooddefinitelydoes and they're always worry about how to young down that type of property.But that doesn't work.Some things are just "square"you know,to use an antiquated term.They need to think more along the lines of that bang-up job Marvel did interpretingCaptain Americafor the 21st century by rooting him first so boldly in the early 20th century where he feels so natural.

Review: Short Term 12

An abridged version of this review was previously published inmy column at Towleroad

The movies that hit us hardest can be the toughest to talk about.Sometimes that's because they're personal,striking you right where you live. Sometimes it's more intangible than that,showing you something you needed to see about a less familiar world just to the side of your own,while never forgetting to move and entertain you.Short Term 12will surely be one of those movies for many,either way.

This rich drama from the Hawaiian filmmaker Destin Cretton,is based on his short film of the same name and concerns a very private young woman named Grace (Brie Larson) the supervisor at a Foster Care facility.Grace is an expert at navigating the emotional chaos of the kids she watches over but less adept at meeting her own emotional needs or opening up to her friends and co-workers about her own secrets.She's got at least two of them weighing her down.Short Term 12refers to the setting,a temporary shelter for troubled or abandoned kids as they await their next foster home assignment.

I have no personal experience with the foster care system or abusive birth parents or mentoring kids -- Hell,I was never even a babysitter (Youngest Child Escape Clause) -- but within minutes the foreignness of it all slips away.[more...]
