J. EDGAR Movie Review By: Rama

J. EDGAR Movie Review By: Rama So what did Rama think of J.EDGAR ? Looks like it is time to find out. Make to follow him on Facebook and Twitter . I think Leonardo DiCaprio’s performance, the make-up and costume design all deserve Oscar nods for J. EDGAR but I just can’t get into the film because it seems to me that it’s unable to make up its mind on how it would present J. Edgar Hoover. Oscar winning screenwriter, Dustin Lance Black, who I admire for his work on Milk, gets lost in spinning fascinating lines like “When Morals Decline and Good Men Do Nothing Evil Flourishes”, which to me is more or less another version of Edmund Burke’s famous quote, to decide if the audience wants to see the closet homosexual side of Hoover or the ambitious side of him, or the side that clings too much to his mother or the side the blackmails presidents using the files he’s accumulated and kept over the years. But today’s audience probably don’t know much about the man who ruled FBI for deca

Is Clint Eastwood Returning to Acting?

While Clint Eastwood was expected to follow directing J Edgar by directing A Star Is Born with Beyonce , her pregnancy has put that project off. Instead, I hear he’s seriously looking at starring in Trouble With The Curve , a project at Warner Bros that will mark the feature directorial debut of his Malpaso partner Robert Lorenz. The Randy Brown-scripted film is about an aging baseball scout, who’s losing his sight, and heads on a last road trip to Atlanta with his daughter to scout a hotshot prospect. They will lock Eastwood and Lorenz’s deals before setting an actress to play the daughter. Malpaso will produce. Aside from being Eastwood’s longtime business partner, Lorenz has been assistant director on many of Eastwood’s films, including Million Dollar Baby, Mystic River and Blood Work.

Armie Hammer Cast In Snow White. Is Saoirse Ronan Next?

Saoirse Ronan could be cast opposite Armie Hammer in Relativity's The Brothers Grimm: Snow White that's an revisionist adult retelling of the fairy tale from director Tarsem Singh. Armie Hammer, fresh off The Social Network, has closed a deal to play Prince Andrew Alcott in the pic. But Ronan (Atonement, and the upcoming Hanna ) is still only "in discussions" for the title role. Julia Roberts already has been cast. It's worth noting that Relativity plans to be in production first for a June 29th, 2012, release before Universal's Snow White And The Huntsman starring Twilight saga superstar Kristen Stewart gets going and comes out December 21, 2012. Supposedly, Viggo Mortensen is shaky in that version. Relativity Media has closed a deal with The Social Network breakthrough star Armie Hammer to play Prince Andrew Alcott in its upcoming untitled Snow White feature, based on the Brothers Grimm story, directed by Tarsem Singh (Immortals, The Cell).

Clint Eastwood Talks Casting DiCaprio,Theron & Dench For Upcoming J. Edgar Film

Eastwood Talks Casting For Upcoming Film J. Edgar The star were aligned for the Sandwich last night during the Red Carpet for the California Hall Of Fame induction. First I got an interview with The Man, James Cameron , which is hard for a small website like mine with no money behind it, just hard work. And as you can tell Hard Work does pay off. From a a distance a cloud of dust over takes the red carpet. And I hear the theme from The Good, The Bad & The Ugly . No, it can't be, the a misty cloud comes over the area and I hear " Go ahead, make my day" . Well, not really, but Clint Eastwood appears and I had no clue he was going to attend the ceremony. I was so unprepared for this one. Mr. Eastwood walked the Red Carpet, taking a time out to talk to James Cameron. Again the BIG dogs get their chance to get the first crack at him. There was no way I was going to let this once in a life time chance to talk to Dirty Harry, pass me bye... The first thing I ha
