Sixteen Candles Photo: Universal Pictures It’s easy to get swept up in a cute teen romance. They’re fun, there’s the nostalgia factor (we were all teens once!), and they’re full of so much hope — the feeling that this is just the beginning . But here’s the thing: Because we’re all so busy getting swept away and having fun and remembering what hope feels like, we don’t always have the most discerning eye when it comes to who our hero has chosen to fall in love with. Sometimes, when you take a closer look at what’s going on and who we’ve been spending cinematic time with, you realize that this person is no good at all and our hero can do much, much better. Don’t get me wrong, some of your favorite teen rom-com love interests are just fine — wonderful, even! — but we owe it to ourselves and our rom-com heroes to examine this idea further. And so Vulture has taken it upon itself to put a sampling of love interests from teen comedies (spanning from the ’80s to today) to the test … [Read more...] about Is This Teen Rom-Com Love Interest Really Worth Dating?

A Who’s Who of screenwriters, producers, and streaming-service execs are speeding to make the next Big Short. But is there room for them all? Photo: Paramount Pictures About a week before the GameStop “stonks” ascendancy officially overwhelmed the news cycle, writer-director Matt Ritter had already seized upon an idea: This shit would make for a great movie. The finance lawyer turned filmmaker and TV producer emailed Jaime Rogozinski, creator of the Reddit thread r/WallStreetBets, who was quickly becoming the public face of a heretofore little-known movement of amateur investors hell-bent on challenging hedge-fund managers’ control of a certain segment of the options-trading market. Ritter’s goal: to “develop a life-rights relationship” that would lay the foundation for a fact-based film. Within days, a Who’s Who of screenwriters, producers, and streaming-service executives were flooding Rogozinski’s inbox with competing offers. “He was literally like, ‘Hey, I have Ben … [Read more...] about Inside Hollywood’s Rush to Make the First GameStop Movie
Ronan and Mia Farrow Photo: Desiree Navarro/WireImage Can you separate an artist’s behavior from his or her art — and should you? There’s no easy answer to that question, but we still fight about it regularly over cultural figures such as Orson Scott Card, Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, R. Kelly, Alec Baldwin, Roman Polanski, and most recently Duck Dynasty ’s Phil Robertson. One of the more durable focal points for this dilemma is Woody Allen, who became a hot-button issue in 1992 when he married his stepdaughter Soon-Yi Previn and got embroiled in a custody battle with his ex-girlfriend Mia Farrow, who alleged that he’d molested their then-7-year-old adopted stepdaughter, Dylan. Each new Allen film dredges up the debate over whether his career achievement eclipses his scandalous acts. His latest project, Blue Jasmine , has been heralded as an Allen comeback, and won an acting award for its star Cate Blanchett at last night’s Golden Globes, where Diane Keaton accepted the Cecil … [Read more...] about Seitz: The Power of Mia and Ronan Farrow’s Virtual Booing of Woody Allen
