This Week in Trailers: Sleepwalking Comics and the Powerful Oz

Every Friday here at Flavorwire, we like to gather up the week’s new movie trailers, give them a look-see, and rank them from worst to best — while taking a guess or two about what they might tell us (or hide from us) about the movies they’re promoting. This week’s five new trailers feature Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, David Duchovny, Vera Farmiga, James Franco, Rachel Weisz, Melanie Lynskey, and Mike Birbiglia; check ‘em all out after the jump, and share your thoughts in the comments. … Read More

10 Essential Films from ‘EW”s ‘Best Movies You’ve Never Seen’ List

Last week, Entertainment Weekly published a list of the 50 Greatest Movies You’ve Never Seen from the past two decades. Stars like Ryan Gosling, Kate Winslet, and Emily Blunt chose several of the selections. EW hasn’t ranked the list, because “ranking movies that are already underrated just seems cruel.” We can’t say we agree with all of their choices — and we wonder if the least-seen films actually predate the past 20 years — but we’ve scoured the massive listing for the essentials so you don’t have to. These are some of our favorites. Tell us what movies inspired you to update your Netflix queue, or which of the 50 films you’d have chosen instead. … Read More

The Actors With the Worst On-Screen Love Lives

One of our favorite movies of the year, Sarah Polley’s heartbreaking Take This Waltz, hits theaters this Friday (but, heads up, you can watch it on demand right effing now, and should). In it, Michelle Williams plays a writer who jeopardizes her seemingly happy marriage when she falls for the handsome fellow down the street. Thinking back on the movie, we couldn’t help but muse that Williams seems an actress particularly unlucky in love on screen; in fact, she’s one of many actors who seem to have made a specialty of playing characters who are perpetually getting screwed, romantically speaking. After the jump, we take a look at the unlucky cinematic love lives of Williams and nine of her contemporaries (to keep it simple, we stuck with modern actors). Some spoilers ahead, so read at your own risk, etc.; agree, disagree, and add your own nominees in the comments. … Read More

Flavorwire’s Guide to Indie Flicks to See in June

Well kids, summer blockbuster is in full swing, and though we love a good blow-’em-up as much as the next moviegoer, it’s easy — particularly in this season — to overlook the smaller and more challenging flicks that are rolling into your local multiplexes and arthouses. So it’s time for another installment in our new monthly feature here at Flavorwire, where we take a look at some of the exciting indies of the month to a come, and a few smaller titles from previous weeks that you might’ve missed. Check them out after the jump! … Read More

12 of the Most Memorable On-Screen Impersonations

Last week, we took a look at a few of Hollywood’s stranger casting decisions for previous (and upcoming) biographical films. But with the Oscar-winning Iron Lady out today on DVD and Blu-ray, we thought we might also take a look at some of the more successful actor/biographical subject match-ups—with a particular eye on those that most convincingly embodied the figures they were playing.

Playing a well-known and well-documented actor, musician, or public figure can’t be easy, even for the best of actors — they not only have to assemble a serviceable performance in the conventional sense, but must also work up a convincing impersonation. They’re playing people that we’re used to seeing, whose look and speech have become familiar and distinctive, and must thus be replicated. The great performances in biographical movies must also then transcend the mere imitation, and create a compelling character beyond that. After the jump, we’ve assembled a dozen of the actors who memorably got into someone else’s skin; add your own in the comments. … Read More

Meet Your New Favorite Celebrity Couple: Michelle Williams and Jason Segel

We don’t usually report on celebrity relationships here at Flavorwire, but the news that Michelle Williams and Jason Segel are apparently now a couple is way too exciting not to share. Right? They’re both just so talented, and while we never would’ve put Nick Andopolis and Jen Lindley together in a million years,… Read More

Great 2011 Movies to Stream on Netflix Over the Holidays

Christmas has come and gone. So, now’s the time to plan some activities for those late nights at the family home, when the kids and elderly relatives have gone to bed and the last thing you want to do is spend quality time with awful Cousin Myrtle. Last week, we rounded up the best new fall TV shows to catch up on over the break. But if you’d rather settle down with a great movie and happen not to have dropped Netflix after their year of terrible decisions, then allow us to alert you to some of 2011′s best films that also happen to be available for streaming on the site. A gay British romance for the ages, a dreamy Thai meditation on death, and a hilarious mockumentary that finds Steve Coogan (sort of) playing himself are just a few of the noteworthy new movies from around the world that await you after the jump. … Read More
