Variety...has an analysis of what this new Media Giant movement might mean for the future

More after the jump includingFiddler on the Roof,Missing Link,a reaction to all the memes aboutBohemian Rhapsody's terrible Oscar-winning editing and famous movie characters you didn't know were on the down low.Lol...

Things that happened on Nicole Kidman's Birthday over the years

On this day in history as it relates to the movies...

1893Lizzie Borden acquitted of the axe murders of her dad and stepmom but everyone still thinks she did it.I still haven't seen that show where Christina Ricci played her.Oops.
1905Lillian Hellman,playwright and screenwriter is born.
1909Swashbuckler supreme Errol Flynn is born
1910Fanny Brice debuts in "Ziegfeld Follies".The moment was recreated (see photo above fromthe Academy's archives) and heavily fictionalized of course,in Barbra Streisand'sFunny Girl(1968)
1915Director Terence Young is born.Goes on to kick off the Bond franchise withDr.No,From Russia With Love,andThunderballand direct Audrey Hepburn to her last Oscar nomination forWait Until Dark(1967)

Curio: Czech Film Posters

Alexahere to share my latest movie poster obsession: Czech film poster design.Under the communist regime from 1948-1989,Czech films were distributed by the government without the use of Western advertising.Czech painters and designers were commissioned by the Central Film Distribution Center to create posters,often with little information on the films.In the 60s and 70s,designers such as Zdeněk Ziegler,Karel Vaca and Wolfgang A.Schlosser created a defining Czech style,distinct from other movie posters in Eastern Europe,with an emphasis on typography and photomontage (as it happens,two of my favorite things).

Here are some highlights...

Today's Watch

Our favorite couple of yesteryear filmmaker/genius Paul Thomas Anderson (The Master,Boogie Nights) and musician/genius Fiona Apple have reunited for this music video "Hot Knife".This is my favorite track on her latest "Idler Wheel"and I'm happy it brought them together again...at least for an afternoon to shoot this.Maya Rudolph is cool with it I'm sure.

Coda
Finally,as follow up toMichael's piece about theBroken Blockbuster culturein Hollywood,/Film is warning usthat the enormous grosses forDespicable Me 2have convinced Universal that their all franchise all the time credo is the right choice.But mostly I want to suggest that you read this piece inThe New York Times MagazineaboutJaws(1975).

...from that point forward,the tiniest splash of a minnow could set the audience shrieking.

This is really what "Jaws"was about: Not sharks,but fear.Not action,but suspense.That's what made it possible for the story of a single shark to scare millions of people into avoiding 71 percent of the earth's surface.

They're right,you know.We really should stop blaming that excellent character-driven filmfor the terribleness of today's disappointing character-free blockbusters...even if it did make Hollywood obsessed with gobbling big profits each summer.
