A glammed up Natalie Portman stars in the upcoming “Vox Lox” opposite Jude Law showing a side of her we haven’t see since her role in “Black Swan.” Matthew Jacobs takes a look back at Natalie’s movie career as we get ready to enjoy this new performance.
this fight scene from atomic blonde (2017) is so underrated. the long shots, the fact that it has no background music so it's more realistic… charlize theron was fucking brutal in this movie and it's time y'all hype her up like you hype up keanu reeves as john wick pic.twitter.com/lWijekk8Xo
“Game of Thrones” is expected to have five prequels. On the one hand it sounds like fun, though everything seems to get beaten to death these days (see Star Wars!). Still, the new series could be incredible, and obviously casting the beautiful and talented Naomi Watts is a great start!.
Lovely Kate Beckinsale joins Kevin Nealon on his new YouTube series where he takes celebrities on a hike. She’s as charming as ever, and Kevin adds some funny bits even as he’s breathing heavily throughout the entire video. It seems like a take on Seinfeld’s car interview series. It’s worth checking out just to see Kate . . .
Those elements aside, “Halloween” is an engaging, brutal, creepy and occasionally hilarious horror film. All of the actors, including Will Patton as a local police officer and Toby Huss as Karen’s husband, deliver great work, covering the emotional gamut while feeling natural and very relatable. It’s a wonder to see Curtis inhabit the role again, stepping into Laurie’s shoes once more but in a different way. The character is written and performed beautifully; she’s a flawed person who is still broken in many ways but also contains a well of strength in the face of evil. The fact that her pain and anger have caused so many problems in her life and with her loved ones is a sad but recognizable facet of her traumatic experience. The filmmakers take great care not to paint Laurie as a misunderstood genius or a basket case but instead as someone whose life was forever altered in ways she may never understand due to her violent encounter.
