"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

Showbiz History: John Wayne's Oscar,Altman's Nashville,JLaw's Record

by Nathaniel R

John Wayne in "The Big Trail (1930)"and in "True Grit (1969)"

This day in history is a big one of Hollywood's most popular stars,John Wayne.His career began,as most did in the early days of Hollywood,with uncredited parts in silent films but he became a leading man once the talkies hit.Perhaps he needed that distinctive slow-crawl dirt road voice to stand out?He had his first leading role at just 23 years of age withThe Big Trail.True stardom didn't hit,though,untilStage Coach(1939) after which,he was top-billed for the remainder of his career.On this very day in 1969True Gritpremiered in Los Angeles.The role of Rooster Cogburn would net him his third Oscar nomination and prove to be something of a career capper when he took home the Best Actor Oscar.(Jeff Bridges would later be Oscar-nominated for the same role in the 2010 Coen brothers remake).Not one to rest -- Wayne holds the record of most leading roles for an American movie star with*gasp*142 of them -- the western icon kept right on working throughThe Shootistin 1976.On this same day in history in 1979,ten years after people first met Rooster Cogburn,Wayne died of stomach cancer.He remains one of the most iconic stars in Hollywood history.

Oscar Presenters or Buddy Comedy?

byChris Feil

Last night Oscar did an outstanding job of pairing its presenters,delivering us stellar moments like Jodie Foster on crutches,Tiffany Haddish in Uggs,and Jane Fonda owning 51% of this damn company.At best,Oscar can take such pairings and inspire audiences to demand the two presenters appear in a film together.Especially with tradition being broken on the lead acting categories,this was a smorgasbord rife for a genre we hold dear: the buddy comedy.Here are the five buddy comedies from last night's presenter duos that we desperately need to see in 2018...

Review: Red Sparrow

by Eric Blume

The Russian Tourism Board won't likely be sponsoring the filmRed Sparrow,the new spy movie fromHunger Gamesdirector Francis Lawrence.Other than featuring some very chic ushankas on a very attractive cast,this film makes Russians look very nasty,just like we've always imagined them to be for the movies.Lawrence's conception of the country illustrates his wonderfully corny,often thrilling,mysterious,and silly/serious approach into old-fashioned espionage that we don't see much of nowadays.

Lawrence starts his film where he should:  firmly on the face of his leading lady,Jennifer Lawrence,sporting a bangs-heavy brown wig.She's a famous ballet dancer in Moscow,and the director steals a bit of the feverish tone ofBlack Swanin her early scenes.The plot unravels in a series of crosses,double-crosses,and reverses that include her involvement with a US spy played by Joel Edgerton...

Beauty vs Beast: Home is Where the Hearts Are

Jason fromMNPPhere with the last "Beauty vs Beast"before the Oscars.亚博主页This week's poll doesn't have anything to do with the Oscars though because let's face it - the Academy,亚博主页bless their shiny hearts,is never going to be as cool and adventurous as our host Nathaniel is.Nathanieldropped his Top Ten of 2017over the weekend and at #9 was a movie AMPAS was never going to go anywhere near - Darren Aronofsky's spectacularly divisivemother!starring Jennifer Lawrence (who's gotRed Sparrowout this weekend) as a sink-bracing Suzy Homemaker under,uh,extreme duress.But we're never going to forgetmother!,and we doubt you will either - even if it's just to picture Michelle Pfeiffer whenever you slip a little extra something into your lemonade...

PREVIOUSLYWe wished Sidney Poitiera happy birthday last Monday,wondering why he wasn't the one who got AMPAS' attention in 1967'sIn the Heat of the Night- he certainly got our attention,rounding up 85% of your vote from his co-star (and statue-snatcher) Rod Steiger.SaidRed:

"Watching Sydney Poitier reassured me that I could grow up into the kind of adult I wanted to be.He still had what we kids had and adults had lost.He was honest,honourable,brave and full of joy."
