Matt Damon: ‘A One-Term President With Some Balls’ Preferable to Barack Obama

Matt Damon: ‘A One-Term President With Some Balls’ Preferable to Barack Obama

No more Mr. Nice Guy! First Matt Damon trashed the screenwriter of the ‘Bourne’ series, now he’s bashing the president. Back in ’08, Damon was one of Barack Obama’s most passionate celebrity supporters, but today the actor is saying he’d have preferred “a one-term president with some balls.” Ouch. “I’ve talked to a lot of people who worked for Obama at the grassroots level. One of them said to me, ‘Never again. I will never…

Viggo Mortensen: ‘A Dangerous Method’ Taught Me How to Talk in a Movie

Viggo Mortensen: ‘A Dangerous Method’ Taught Me How to Talk in a Movie

David Cronenberg isn’t necessarily the first director you’d expect to make a movie about the war of wills between two trailblazing 19th-century psychoanalysts, although on further reflection the idea starts to make sense. Cronenberg’s movies have always featured plenty of disturbed individuals, so it stands to reason that he would not only know the work of Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung but that he would ultimately become fascinated by the flaws and faults of the…

Woody Allen Movies, Ranked From Best to Worst

Woody Allen Movies, Ranked From Best to Worst

TIZIANA FABI/AFP/Getty Images After 42 movies, Woody Allen is a genre all his own. Over the years, he’s taught us a few things through his films: that even a nebbish can be a romantic leading man; that the cinema of ideas can be funny; and that life is nasty, brutish, and over much too quickly. Most of all, even if he’s quick to dismiss the value of his own movies compared to those of the…

Best Soundtracks of 2011: ‘Drive,’ ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,’ ‘The Muppets’ and More

Best Soundtracks of 2011: ‘Drive,’ ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,’ ‘The Muppets’ and More

This month, Cameron Crowe’s ‘We Bought a Zoo’ hits theaters. Normally that would make for an anti-climactic No. 1 entry on a Best Soundtracks of 2011 list. After all, every single Crowe film — yeah, even ‘Elizabethtown’ — is set to an unbelievably rocking set of songs, which more or less double as a mixtape made from Crowe’s personal music collection. (That’s what you get from a director who used to write for Rolling Stone.)…

‘The Dead Pool’ at 25: Why Clint Eastwood’s Dirty Harry Still Matters

‘The Dead Pool’ at 25: Why Clint Eastwood’s Dirty Harry Still Matters

Silver Screen Collection/Getty This week marks the 25th anniversary of “The Dead Pool,” which, perhaps no one realized at the time, was the final “Dirty Harry” movie. The movie was released on July 13, 1988, shortly after Eastwood turned 58, and while the actor has continued to play cops and gunslingers and action heroes, he tossed away Inspector Harry Callahan’s badge for good. “Dead Pool” isn’t a great movie (though it did give early career…

Bill Murray Reportedly Shreds ‘Ghostbusters 3’ Script; Or, Your Favorite Wild Rumor of the Day

Bill Murray Reportedly Shreds ‘Ghostbusters 3’ Script; Or, Your Favorite Wild Rumor of the Day

Who you gonna call? Not Bill Murray, if this ‘Ghostbusters 3’ tidbit from the Enquirer (via CinemaBlend) is to be believed (and it probably isn’t). Bill Murray was supposedly so displeased with the latest script for the long-in-the-works sequel that he shredded it and sent it back to Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd with a note stating, “No one wants to pay money to see fat, old men chasing ghosts!” It has long been reported…

Why Isn’t Ryan Reynolds a Bigger Star?

Why Isn’t Ryan Reynolds a Bigger Star?

Ilya S. Savenok/Getty This should be a big week for Ryan Reynolds. He has two potential summer blockbuster movies opening, both of which stand to ingratiate him with different sets of moviegoers. In family cartoon “Turbo,” opening July 17, he’s the voice of a super-fast snail with dreams of hot rod racing. And in action comedy “R.I.P.D.,” based on a comic book, he’s a rookie in a department for undead cops who partners with grizzled…
