    I watched 'Enough Said' last night. Great cast (Julia Louis Dreyfus, James Gandolfini, Toni Collette, Catherine Keener) w/ great writing for the most part.

    Highly recommended!

    ‘Hercules’ Hunk-Off: Kellan Lutz vs. Dwayne Johnson as Dueling Demigods

    Charlie Hunnam Replaced in Fifty Shades of Grey Film, Drops Out Due to Schedule

    The Top Ten Highest Paid Actresses of 2013

    10. Julia Roberts – 11 million
    9. Mila Kunis – 11 million
    8. Natalie Portman – 14 million
    7. Sandra Bullock – 14 million
    6. Charlize Theron – 15 million
    5. Emma Stone – 16 million
    4. Jennifer Aniston – 20 million
    3. Kristin Stewart – 22 million
    2. Jennifer Lawrence – 26 million
    1. Angelina Jolie – estimated 33 million
    (Anybody think Stewart might slip a spot of two in 2014? )

    I watched Palm Beach Story recently and Rudy Vallee had a small part. I noticed this in his imdb.com profile, which I thought was very cool and wanted to share:

    When Vallée took his contractual vacations from his national radio show in 1937, he insisted his sponsor hire Louis Armstrong as his substitute (this was the first instance of an African-American fronting a national radio program).
    And from inspiring to demoralizing, this little snippet in Entertainment Weekly (the "Bullseye" colum) of a picture of Cher with Fergie: “You’re like the daughter I never had…well, used to have.”

    P.S. I don't believe there has ever been one mention of "Sharknado" in any of our movie threads. Are there NO cinema lovers here anymore???
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    What did Angie get paid for?... Is it that she's currently filming Maleficent? Because she hasn't been in anything since 2011.

    Saw Rush yesterday. I would never have thought this was a Ron Howard movie. It was really good and very well directed. I keep being impressed by Chris Hemsworth and he is just gorgeous anyway. Daniel Bruhl was fantastic (give him an Oscar). I actually liked how you got some idea of what drives these guys who do motor racing and they didn't leave you wondering what happened to them with the update at the end. Also one of those movies that make you go home and do some research about the people it is about which is what I like to get out of a true story movie.

    Is it for the Kungfu Panda series? Can't be for The Tourist?

    So Natalie Portman makes the top 10 just for the Thor movie? Don't get me wrong, I love Portman, but I had to look her up to see what she'd done recently.

    I assume they go by each actresses highest paid film for the year. So it would only take one film.

    Watched Gravity in 3D IMAX last night. The intensity was insane. The movie is only 90 minutes long, but damn do they ever pack in the suspense. I found myself numerous times wanting them to get on with scene, not because it wasn't good, but because it was so intense that I couldn't bare any more intensity. Ha! I'm still feeling affected over 24 hours later. I've been encouraging other friends and family members to go watch the film... and if at all possible, watch it in 3D IMAX (or 3D at the very least).

    I was assuming totals for the year, but I guess single film makes more sense. But regardless, my point was that I thought it was interesting someone like Portman, who hasn't done much lately, would still factor into the top 10 -- esp. compared to actors who have been much busier and far more in the spotlight lately. Like Jessica Chastain, or Carey Mulligan, or Cate Blanchett.

    Oscar winners are really expensive, and the Marvel movies are ridiculously huge. I'm not surprise Portman made the list with one film.

    (Yes, I realize Blanchett won an Oscar as well, but it was several years before Portman and the one big film she's in ["The Hobbit"] is a fairly minor role.)

    Portman did more last year than Angie did, in terms of movies actually being released And I don't see why Disney wouldn't pay her a large amount of money, the hype on Maleficent is pretty huge. Is this just for actual film work, or any money made at all? Because then it makes more sense to me.

    Blanchett probably gets money on the back end of the Hobbit as well, so they may not know how much she rakes in until the movie is released and they count up all the box office which will not be until 2014. This is how Robert Downey Jr. made quadrillions on Iron Man.

    Wow, not only does Gravity hold onto the #1 spot at the box office this weekend, but it bests the #2 debut of Captain Phillips with 43 million (compared to the 25 million taken in by the Tom Hanks movie). Not necessarily bad news for Captain Phillips, as its' budget is only 55 million...exactly half of Gravity. The #1 movie again this week only dips 23 percent, so there's more positive word of mouth out there than just here on FSU! And Gravity took in a WHOPPING $11,800 per theatre average. Only one movie comes close to that...Captain Phillips with $8,516 - no other movie in the top 50 this week took in more than $4,000 per theatre (on average). Machete Kills debuted at #4 with under 4 million in revenue on a budget of 20 million. Hmm...hope it does a lot better in international box office. Or somebody might take the knife to this series... (Sorry!!!)

    I mentioned earlier that I'll be seeing Carrie on Sunday, I'm also interested in All Is Lost, it looks really well made. Broadway Idiot looks good to me, but definitely one to wait for on DVD. Paradise has gotten a horribly low rating on imdb.com (3.5! ), but I think the trailer looks decent - and what a cast! So I'm in. And I'm interested in Torn even though with only 5,000 views of the trailer at youtube, it looks like this has zero marketing push behind in and will probably be in a tiny number of theatres for a week (maybe two) and then go directly to DVD. But I'm going to keep an eye out for it. Okay, here's a test to see if anyone reads this far in my weekly posts of box office info and new releases. Which of the movies coming out this next weekend are you most looking forward to from the above list? Curious to see how many people will answer this question.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I will answer!

    I am interested in Carrie but I don't think I will be running to the theaters to see it unless some friends want to go.

    Torn seems interesting but I doubt it plays around here but should be out on DVD rather soon.

    12 Years a Slave has one good looking cast (Fassbender and Pitt?!) but I need to watch the trailer. I've heard of it before, though.

    Saw 'Gravity' today. Enjoyed it. Definitely an event movie that needs to be experienced in 3D on the big screen. I saw it in IMAX also. I think this type of movies doesn't need big stars to carry it; It would have been interesting had two unknowns been cast in the leads. One minor criticism is that I didn't really care for the main character's back story; I find that the screenwriter and director are often too manipulative when using that storytelling device.

    Article is interesting - and I get it for most movies. I saw the Butler and enjoyed it and Forrest Whitaker is amazing. It is not that I minded the inaccuracies, but just that The Butler's son was always in thick of things, seem contrived. Plus it focused on civil rights, I would have enjoyed other topics of the era too. It felt manipulative to me and that is what turns me off.

    On another movie....
    In my movie preview film club - last week we saw a Belgian movie 'The Unbroken Cirlce Breakdown' - very good movie, great acting. But there was something off in it. There were scenes I would normally be crying during the movie and heartbreaking things occurred, but I did not shed a tear. Not sure why, other than somehting was off in the movie. It is getting good reviews. But a few other people in my film club felt the same way.

    I am interested in Carrie but I'm really not a horror movie fan. I may wait until it shows up on Netflix then I can skip to the next part if I feel the need. I would normally just avoid it but I really like Julianne Moore.

    I saw Gravity today. It was absolutely stunning. I would watch it again just to stare at it and absorb the stunning visuals. Sandra Bullock was really good as well, it's probably the best I've ever seen her. But this movie is really all about the direction and the visuals. It's just so pretty.

    Just finished watching Beautiful Creatures. I liked it, but doubt it will make my Top 10 Best Movies of 2013 list. But it's a great looking movie with a wonderful supporting cast and two decent leads. The worldwide box office was 56 million on a budget of 50 million so I'm guessing the three other books in the series won't make it onto the silver screen.

And it had one of my favourite endings for a film in a very long time. I highly recommend this one.
    Glad to hear you liked it. I have it on hold at the library, so I'll be seeing it soon. Really great cast, wasn't sure I'd be drawn in by the storyline, but with your recommendation I now hope to be!

    Good info. Maybe with this movie they have a limited team to publicize it, so the one team moves with the movie as they are about to open it in a new country. Seems out of date with the big publicity machines/campaigns of today, but if you're a smaller movie, maybe this is how it has to be done.

    I tapped her on the shoulder and said, "Nah, there are 2 of us."
