This Kiss…Sucks

Always wanted to plant one on Angelina Jolie? Have dreams of sucking face with Leonardo DiCaprio? If you the opportunity ever arises, you may want to pass and let your wildest dreams stay just that. In Touch Weekly got the skinny on making out with a number of celebs from their co-stars, and if these actors are to be believed, not a single one was a pleasant experience. (In Touch tells you to pick up a copy of their newest mag on newsstands to read the full listing, but fear not dear readers, Defamer has them all in gory detail.)

The Great Gatsby: Party On, Baz

<i>The Great Gatsby</i>: Party On, Baz

There are many ways to describe Baz Lurhmann's directing style, but "restrained" sure as hell isn't one of them. From Strictly Ballroom to Australia, each of the Aussie auteur's films embrace emotional and cinematic excess in grand, borderline ridiculous ways. That makes him an unlikely, but also inspired choice to tackle an adaptation of a Great NovelTM like F. Scott's Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, a text so revered that movie versions can become ossified by their own self-importance. That's what happened to the last Gatsby flick, the 1974 Robert Redford/Mia Farrow tour-de-boredom that was so respectful of Fitzgerald's text that it transformed his vibrant novel into a pretty, but inert soap opera.

I'm finding lately that I enjoy hearing Quentin Tarantino talk about his movies more than I enjoy actually watching them. It wasn't always this way, of course.

Quentin Tarantino Gets Back on the Horse with <i>Django Unchained</i>

Only Quentin Tarantino would be bold (or crazy) enough to make a movie about America's 19th-century slave trade in the style of a blood-soaked spaghetti Western rather than a sober, Lincoln-style prestige picture. But the gambit works -- Django Unchained is a wild, woolly ride, sending its titular slave-turned-bounty hunter (played by Jamie Foxx) on a mission to rescue his wife (Kerry Washington) and taking on the entire institution of slavery in the process. Tarantino and his A-list cast appeared in New York recently and spoke to the press about the origins of the project, what it was like to shoot the movie on an actual plantation and why Django Unchained is ultimately a superhero movie.
