HIT FIX – Wednesday, Aug 4, 2010 by Drew McWeeny
Every now and then, you ask for an interview and things come together just right.
I saw Rob Reiner’s new film “Flipped” a few months ago, and I was charmed by it immediately. At that point, I started asking Warner Bros. to put me together with Reiner for a long-form interview like the one I conducted last year with Terry Gilliam at Comic-Con.
That may sound like an easy request, but these days, it’s really not. You’re typically given ten or fifteen minutes, and since they’re typically interested in talking about the new movie or TV show or book or whatever, and since you’ve got publicists hovering nearby to suggest that you keep the conversation somewhat on-topic, you rarely get a chance to just relax and discuss the full body of someone’s work.

I’m a sucker for movie-themed parties, not to mention it’s where I got my start in party-planning. I love how you can interpret aspects of a film into a party design! And since there are almost endless films to act as inspiration, it’s a never-ending challenge! One example that has been on my mind for awhile is a Bridal Shower based on The Princess Bride, (Princess Bride-al Shower?) Maybe it’s the bride’s favorite movie, or maybe you just want to interpret this cult-classic love story into a fun theme – I’ve got the ideas right here! Continue reading

Putting the “man” back in “romance”
Empireonline.com by Helen O’Hara
After seeing Lasse Hallstrom’s Dear John, a soppy Nicholas Sparks love story from the guy’s point of view, we were inspired to spend a moment or two looking at the romances that are aimed at those of you with an XY chromosome. Here are the films that prove that you can be manly and romantic all at the same time, and that falling in love doesn’t have to be just for girls. What’s more, watching these will win you brownie points with the ladies in your life as well, so what’s not to love? Continue reading

I’m not that interested in Final Fantasy XIV, what with it being a massively multiplayer game and all, but man, I’m interested in anything and everything related to Cary Elwes. Like this guy.

I am trying to be really calm about this. You guys know how I feel about replicas when they’re done wrong. I tend to get a little, shall we say, overzealous. We’ve got the exact opposite here and, frankly, I’m at a loss for words. I’ve been saying that a movie replica needs to be attractive, realistic, and- above all else- able to be held and posed with.
