OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL continues to rule the boxoffice as easily as Oz (James Franco) himself rules in the Emerald City. Before the film opened the very talented actresses that play the three witches of the movie spoke of their witchy roles. Michelle Williams plays Glinda the Good Witch, Rachel Weisz is Evanora Witch of the East, and Milla Kunis is Theodroa Witch of the West. All three of the actresses had a good time making the movie, and not a single one of them didn’t enjoy being in wires and flying about the sets. “I think we all […]Read On »

Comic-Con News: Michelle Williams says she would consider a DAWSON’S CREEK reunion movie

DAWSON'S CREEK - THE COMPLETE FIFTH SEASON

While promoting her new film OZ: THE GREAT AND POWERFUL, Michelle Williams was asked by the press whether she would consider doing a DAWSON’S CREEK reunion movie where she played Jen Lindley from 1998 to 2003. Her response is quite surprising. “I would,” she admits. “I’d very happily do a reunion show, but I don’t know what it would be since my character died in the end. There are certain limitations – either I come back as a ghost or you film me through a gauzy lens in flashbacks as my 19-year old self. I would love to. Independently, we’ve […]Read On »

In TNT’s new series FALLING SKIES, the survivors of an alien invasion of Earth band together to fight the marauding extraterrestrials. Sometimes, dealing with fellow humans can be almost as challenging as battling the ETs, as evidenced by the interactions between teacher-turned-freedom fighter Tom Mason, played by Noah Wyle, and experienced soldier Captain Dan Weaver, played by Will Patton. The South Carolina-born Patton has appeared in a huge amount of feature films and television series, including NO WAY OUT, 24, THE CLIENT, VR.5, REMEMBER THE TITANS and THE MOTHMAN PROPHECIES, as well as many stage roles. In person, the actor […]Read On »

CD Review: BLUE VALENTINE soundtrack

Where NO STRINGS ATTACHED stands as a date film that’s likely to get you lucky, BLUE VALENTINE practically ensures you’ll never see your lady again, if not one that will plant the seeds for a future divorce with the wife you’ve foolishly taken to see the flick. That being said, BLUE VALENTINE is also certainly one of the best feel-bad relationship films ever made, a continual gut punch to the idea of true love. So it’s only right that its music should be as raw as its downward-spiraling couple’s emotions. What Brooklyn band Grizzly Bear delivers goes even beyond that […]Read On »
