Kendrick Lamar, James Bond, and Gastrointestinal Passcode Pills: Links You Need to See

The more that Gwyneth Paltrow keeps insisting that she does not live on Cloud 9 or Mount Olympus, the less the world believes her. Yesterday, she explained on CNN Money, “I’m incredibly close to the common woman in that I’m a woman and I’m a mother and we all are in a physical body with beating hearts with compassion and love…,” yet one day, Gwen or her progeny will own one of these flying cars, and I’ll still be trying to get health insurance. … Read More

10 Famous Films That Were Abandoned by Their Directors

Lynne Ramsay is a tremendously talented director, as anyone who has seen her films We Need to Talk About Kevin and Ratcatcher can tell you, which makes the latest ripple in her career quite a bummer: when production began Monday on her latest film, the Natalie Portman-fronted Western Jane Got a Gun, Ramsay was nowhere to be found. Deadline broke the story (so beware; that site is notoriously cozy with studio types who might have it in their interest to paint Ramsay as wildly — and litigiously — irresponsible), reporting trouble right up to the start date. Ramsay still hasn’t issued comment on the matter, but the film’s producers have already lined up a replacement in the form of Gavin O’Connor, director of Warrior and Tumbleweeds (and the pilot of The Americans). Deadline branded Ramsay’s departure a “SHOCKER,” but it’s not as rare as you’d think; despite the intense work of developing a picture and preparing it, filmmakers have frequently walked away from pictures before — or even during — production. We’ve got a few examples for you after the jump. … Read More

Flavorwire’s Flick of the Week: ‘Skyfall’ Is Bond at His Best

Skyfall, the 23rd (official) film in the James Bond franchise, opens with a throwaway moment, but one with an electrical charge: a blurry, distant silhouette enters a hallway. Doesn’t sound like much of a scorcher, I know, but that image is accompanied by the first two notes of the iconic Bond theme (if I may approximate: “NUH NUH!”), a musical choice that makes us lean forward in fevered anticipation. He strides down that hallway into a big, beautiful close-up, and gets down to business. That opening shot is making us a promise, that Bond is back and better than ever, and it’s a promise that Skyfall keeps. … Read More

The Best and Worst of Last Night’s ‘SNL’ With Daniel Craig

After only two solid episodes and a set of adorable promos that had us feeling optimistic about seeing Daniel Craig host this week, Saturday Night Live has had the first real flop of the season. It’s probably not Craig’s fault — we’ll chalk it up to a preponderance of political sketches that the producers clearly felt had to be offset by some of the most shameless (and grossest) potty humor they could think of. Saturday Night Live is best when the actors push well-written, clever sketches to their logical extremes, and we had a little bit of extremity tonight, but not much cleverness. Click through to check out the best and worst of the evening, and let us know if you agree with your picks or think we’re totally off the mark in the comments. … Read More
