Affleck

Ben Affleck spoke with MTV recently about his penis' onscreen debut in the upcoming David Fincher film, Gone Girl. Explaining that though he "tries to get it in in every movie" this particular film called for him to bare it all to show "the seedy underbelly of his character." Affleck also cautions audiences to keep in mind, "It was a very cold set."

Affleck's male prowess previously set tongues wagging after CBS Producer Chuck Lorre, referring to concerns about Affleck playing the Dark Knight in the Zack Snyder-directed Batman vs. Superman, told a story about using the urinal next to Affleck at an event: "Yes I peeked. And yes, Comic Con, he can play Batman."

Jimmy Fallon Presents Russian President Vladimir Putin's Reviews Of American Films: VIDEO

PutinReviews

Jimmy Fallon delivered some very real news in hilarious fashion last night, commenting on the proposed boycott of Hollywood films in Russia based on U.S. sanctions and anti-Russian representation. It is undeniably true (and somewhat unfortunate) that the Russian villain has become an archetypical figure in American films and also, as politician Vladislav Grib commented, that "Russian pictures have a hard time reaching the screens and sometimes they are unable to do that at all.” As The Independent reported, a Russian ban could severely impact international box office for American cinema: "Russia's box office is the eighth largest film market in the world." 

Fallon seemed to take the news in stride, however, and presented his audience with "Putin Movie Reviews" of popular Hollywood films Frozen, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and new release, A Walk Among the Tombstones. It's a very funny bit, and they seemed to capture Putin's cynical voice perfectly.

Movie Review: 'Pride'

  Pride-disco
You'll feel like dancing, too. "Pride" is the year's most adorable movie.  

BY NATHANIEL ROGERS 

Truth is stranger-than-fiction and also often gayer. The new feature PRIDE dramatizes a largely unknown historical anecdote from the bitter year-long miner’s strike in Thatcher-era Britain when a group of gay activists fundraised for the miners. This alliance is at first an awkward tense match but it eventually finds heartwarming pockets of oxygen when these two unlikely groups are breathing the same air.

It begins with a handful of gay activists (“and lesbian!” their only female member interjects with a small wave in a recurring joke), notice a sudden decline in police bullying in their neighborhood. They make the connection: the conservative government has a new minority to scapegoat. They form a group called LGSM “Lesbians and Gays for the Striking Miners” to help the people suffering without paychecks for months on end — a byproduct of Margaret Thatcher’s war against the unions.

At first, though, these gay heroes can’t even find a miner’s group that will take their money in this cross culture dramedy. MORE AFTER THE JUMP...

Weekend Movie: 'The Maze Runner'

  Maze-dylan
No, Dylan, the Maze is not a metaphor for navigating your sudden stardom.  

BY NATHANIEL ROGERS 

The last thing anyone will ever enjoy about THE MAZE RUNNER, should they be so lucky as to enjoy it, is a review describing the finer points of its narrative. Let if suffice to say that Stiles from Teen Wolf wakes up in a large glade surrounded by a huge stone maze. The only inhabitants of this sealed environment are a group of similarly aged boys, none of whom are frequently shirtless werewolves, dammit.

Why are they there?

Who put them there?

Can they ever escape?

What’s different about Dylan O’Brien besides the largest paycheck?

Will there be a sequel?

The movie shall answer all of these questions in 113 minutes! And many more. In fact The Maze Runner so loves to ask and answer questions, that it does so in literally every scene rivalling Inception in sheer expository percentages of dialogue uttered.

Since the movie loves to answer questions, TEN QUESTIONS AFTER THE JUMP...

Gay Films, Star Power, and Oscar Buzz: a Report from the Toronto International Film Festival

  Theoryof-premiere
Eddie Redmayne got a huge thumbs up in Toronto. Oscar-bound?

BY NATHANIEL ROGERS 

Hello all. Just back from Canada from the Toronto International Film Festival, aka the best film festival in the world, which wrapped up on Sunday. My fellow Oscar bloggers like to shill for Telluride these days but I’m convinced it’s simply Stockholm Syndrome since Telluride actually makes the press pay hundreds and hundreds of dollars for a pass for the privilege of giving them free publicity. In Toronto, if you’re lucky enough to write about the movies for a living, you get your press pass for free and your only expense, other than travel and lodging (which can add up) is your time. But what person who loves movies, wouldn’t want to spend that gorging on selections from all over the world, the best of Cannes and Sundance and a ton of new ones, some of them courting Oscar gold, too.

I was so giddy all week that even when I failed to spot Reese Witherspoon at her own party for WILD (she’s short, y’all and thus hides easily in a crowd even in a sparkly dress) I remained elated to chat with Laura Dern (one of the greats who needs big roles again!) and wonder what possessed Chris Evans to what looked like gloriously form-fitting white longjohn shirt to a party where everyone else was in suits. I’m not complaining, I’m just saying. I was so thrilled that even the sight of Eddie Redmayne’s back in his daring aquamarine suit and Andrew Garfield’s giant beard at THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING party was as good as actually talking to them, but I made do with talking to Oscar-buzzing Felicity Jones who, like Redmayne, gives her best screen performance yet in that new Stephen Hawking biopic.
