Quvenzhané Wallis Can’t Save the ‘Annie’ Reboot, But Her Performance Is More Important Than Critics Let On

When I checked the Rotten Tomatoes page for the Annie reboot this morning, I was surprised to see its positive ratings had crept up past the 20 percent mark. I was surprised because the critical response to the film has felt so universally negative: vicious review after vicious review has reveled in “hard knock life” and “the sun’ll come out tomorrow” puns that are about as unoriginal as the movie’s dialogue, all in the service of complaining about Annie‘s lack of originality. … Read More

The Best and Worst of Last Night’s ‘SNL’ with Cameron Diaz

Trailers for the Annie remake featuring a tarted-up Cameron Diaz as the mean Miss Hannigan are cringeworthy (highlighting some of the problems actresses over 40 face), but Diaz has proven to be a gifted comedian so perhaps she stands a chance. It was disappointing to see that SNL followed suit by shoving her into a few tight skirts and some lingerie for tonight’s episode, but Diaz’s energy and professionalism steal the spotlight. This is her first time on the Studio 8H stage since 2005 (she’s hosted three times before), but Diaz doesn’t miss a beat. Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars bring the funk in a flashy set. See how it all went down, below. … Read More

Ridley Scott and Cormac McCarthy’s ‘The Counselor’ Disappoints

When the Coen Brothers took home a bundle of awards for their 2007 adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s No Country for Old Men, including the Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay, the 1992 National Book Award winner found himself shot into a whole new realm of fame. By then, McCarthy was already on a professional hot streak: in April of 2007 Oprah had picked his latest novel, The Road, for her Book Club. Literature lovers had already known of McCarthy’s greatness, but now everybody knew, and everybody wanted to read him. You could hardly go anywhere without seeing somebody clutching a copy of the book the Coens had adapted, or the post-apocalyptic novel that Oprah loved so much (and would eventually be turned into a well-received 2009 film). … Read More

It’s Easy to Love Actors Like Gwyneth Paltrow: Just Ignore Their Terrible Personalities

“Gwyneth Paltrow is not the most courteous scooter driver,” went the Vulture headline last week, and skimming it, this reader had one immediate thought: there is not one thing in that headline I care about. I don’t care about scooters; I don’t care about who is and is not good at driving them; and I especially don’t care about how the Oscar-winning actress stacks up in the scooter-courtesy derby. But here’s the real question: why does anybody care? … Read More
