2012-05-18 00:45:00
If you had to cast someone today to play the role James Stewart defined in Harvey (on stage as well as screen), it would be the fetching Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory‘s Sheldon. He’s set to do that this summer on Broadway. From this interview, it’s clear he understands the part. And did I ...

“You might think”, reports Oliver Knox  on Yahoo! News . . .  that Barack Obama’s crazy presidential schedule makes it difficult for him to stay on top of popular culture. You’d be half-right.

At 0:49 below, Audrey Hepburn demonstrates how gay Americans should have responded to President Obama’s statement on gay marriage yesterday: Like everything with Obama, all we get is “words, words, words.” This is not just a gay conservative talking.  Several voices on the left have found that there’s not much there there in the president’s ...

Just returned from seeing the Hunger Games.  I had thought that if I saw a late show on Monday night, I’d miss the crowds, but even though I got to the theater 10 minutes before the show was scheduled to start, only walked in the actual auditorium as the previews were starting.  There were lines ...

The greatest confrontation between women ever caught on film?
2012-05-04 07:48:00
I am not entirely comfortable with the term, “catfight” in describing the confrontation between these two Titanesses of the silver screen–but best screen confrontation between women on screen was not as catchy — and quite clunky a title. Well, I found a better; it may lack the punch of the original, but at least I’m ...

Disney-DMG’s Iron Man 3 Co-Production. The Shape Of China Movies To Come.
2012-04-18 16:17:00
By:  Mathew Alderson As we noted in “Foreign Investment in Chinese Movie Theaters,” China now has the second biggest box office in the world. Box office takings are effectively the only source of return on investment for foreign filmmakers in China because a market for ancillaries has not yet developed here. Most observers attribute this to piracy, which impedes legitimate downloads as well as the rental or sale of legitimate DVD’s. Whatever the reason for the primacy of China box office takings as an income source, there are only two ways for foreigners to get a piece of the action. If their film is purely foreign they can seek to have it imported as part of the annual quota of foreign films expressly entitled to share in China box office revenue. Otherwise, they can do an official Sino-foreign co-production, which will be regarded as a domestic Chinese film, to which the quota does not apply. The distinction between foreign imports and Sino-foreign co-productions is...

On the unrecognized(?) loneliness in the gay male community

The Baby Name Maeve
2012-03-28 09:00:00
Maeve is an Anglicized form of the ancient Gaelic name Medb, meaning “intoxicating.” It wasn’t widely used in the U.S. until it got two (maybe three) distinct boosts from popular culture. The movie My Son My Son (1940), which featured a character named Maeve O’Riorden, put the name on the map. 1939 – (unlisted) 1940 – 8 babies named Maeve 1941 – 10 babies named Maeve 1942 – (unlisted) 1943 – 6 babies named Maeve?

Just started watching the first season of Game of Thrones on DVD and have not just been impressed, but have actually been blown about by the production quality of the miniseries.  This is not to say I have some quibbles with the sets (don’t remember there being palm trees in King’s Landing), but just to ...

Kirk Cameron in Context
2012-03-13 08:52:00
Perhaps, it’s because Kirk Cameron is not an elected official that I didn’t make much of his comments earlier this month, calling homosexuality “unnatural“, even, as he put it, “detrimental and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”  He has a right to his opinions. And we have a right to challenge ...

On the merits of George Clooney?s Indifference
2012-03-06 00:07:00
I’m no fan of George Clooney; he’s not a very good actor, bland in (most of) his movies and smug in his personal appearances. That said, in one aspect, he is far superior to many celebrities.  He remains pretty upfront about wanting to remain single.  He doesn’t dissemble for the sake of his image.  I ...
Katie Hawkes: 6 Famous Movies That Wouldn?t Cut It as Silent Films

An inquiry into the Palin obsession of the Hollywood elite
2012-03-02 22:30:00
You have to wonder about people in politics who define themselves by their animosities.  Some people seem to spend the better parts of their day obsessing about Sarah Palin and other right-wingers who figure prominently in their demonology.  If you really hated this accomplished reformer, why would you want to subject yourself to seeing her ...
