The Only Female Captain Of 'Star Trek' Speaks Out
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Though overshadowed by "Star Wars" hype, the recent announcement that a new “Star Trek” series is in the works caught the attention of lite sci-fi geeks, and thrilled series devotees. The first question on fans’ minds -- after “for real?!” and “when?!” (yes, in 2017) -- was who will helm the latest edition as its Captain. It’s a role with a certain stigma attached to it, and a storied history. The Captain must be self-assured, old enough to have had the experience to man a large crew, well-versed in techno-babble, and possessive of an air of grandeur typically reserved for Shakespearean stage actors.  It’s too early for any surfacing rumors to carry much weight, but a few science-fiction sites and forums have cast their votes for who they’d prefer to see seated in the Captain’s chair. Whispers about the overdue casting of an LGBT Captain are among the most promising -- or at least the most interesting. Entertainment site Inquisitr notes that the series has a track record of in ...

The Portland Mercury - over 3 years
This week: David Gordon Green's Prince Avalanche, Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca, and Bill S. Preston Esq. and Ted Theodore Logan's Excellent Adventure. 2 Guns Here's Denzel Washington in action-hero mode, and Mark Wahlberg in funny-dopey sidekick mode, and Edward James Olmos deliciously slumming his way through a role as a Mexican drug kingpin named Papi, and Bill "Knuckles" Paxton showing up in a few scenes making crazy eyes. There are some cool car chases, a bunch of shooting, a bank robbery, and plenty of quipping. This is all 100 percent fine. But for a B movie that revels in being empty-headed, 2 Guns still comes up a little empty-handed. Even the title smacks of laziness, but it's the absolutely ludicrous plot that hobbles what could have been a fun, thoughtless, chewy genre exercise. NED LANNAMANN Various Theaters.

Ellen Snortland: Broad Appeal Reveals the Invisibility of Older Women
Huffington Post - over 3 years
An affable, funny and friendly woman by the name of Sam Dawson has compiled a book that deserves your attention: Broad Appeal: Wit and Wisdom from Women Ages Sixty to Ninety. When is the last time you've had a meaningful connection with a woman over 60 with whom you're not related? Sam Dawson is out to change the invisibility of "broads" over 60, and she's made a good start. She's also a connector and salon maven, but more about that later. When I taught the "Media, Culture & Identity" course at Cal State Los Angeles, I'd screen movies that were provocative and inclusive of invisible characters missing from the general movie and TV landscape. I used to joke with my students that if aliens landed and were to judge the population profile of the earth based on the characters depicted in our entertainment, they would logically conclude that: We have sufficient population control, not through birth control but through white men killing everything in sight... except each ...

Liz Smith: Anne Boleyn Through the Ages -- An Image and Reputation Constantly Re-invented
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"Don't put your daughter on the stage Mrs. Worthington," goes the Noel Coward ditty. Today, Will Smith might be thinking along the same lines -- don't put your son in your movies Mr. Smith! After Earth, the post-apocalyptic sci-fi entry which stars Will and his son Jaden, not only received scathing reviews but a poor box-office showing this past weekend. The unfortunate feeling "out there"--in the unfettered world of the blogosphere--is that Will and wife Jada Pinkett Smith, have essentially pushed their two children on the public. The Smiths are being seen, no doubt unfairly as high-end versions of Dina and Michael Lohan. The public has watched too many kid stars go down in flames, and are tired of it. Speaking of going down in flames, After Earth just might be the end of M. Night Shyamalan's directing career. Most everything he's done since The Sixth Sense has been risible, at best. • Over the weekend I was shocked to read on the front page of Yahoo! that Sha ...

Liz Smith: The Lady in the Tower: The Sizzling Rise and Sordid Fall of Anne Bolelyn
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
"She was more accused than convicted," remarked one of Queen Anne Boleyn's contemporaries, after Anne's conviction and execution on charges of adultery, incest and treason during her marriage to King Henry VIII. This from Alison Weir's history, The Lady In The Tower. Anne Boleyn was not popular. She had caused Henry to abandon the Church of Rome in order to divorce his first wife, the pious, brave, and righteously stubborn, Catharine of Aragon. (The people loved her. They thought she was a saint.) Henry, after being kept at arm's length from what lurked under Anne voluminous skirts for six years, would marry this clever minx, make her queen and -- he hoped -- ensure himself a male heir; something Catharine had not been able to do. Anne, in her efforts to be queen and not merely Henry's mistress, encouraged the already roiling Reformation, and changed history! (The people did not love her. They thought she was a whore.) She was vivacious, sexually alluring, ambitious, ...

Liz Smith: Kim Novak's Surprising Revelation, Maggie Smith's Good News
Huffpost Celebrity - almost 5 years
"DID I do the right thing, leaving? Did I walk out when I shouldn't have? When I think that way, that's when I get sad." That is legendary screen goddess Kim Novak, talking just the other day to Turner Classic Movies host Robert Osborne. Miss Novak made a rare appearance at Osborne's annual TCM Classic Film Festival in LA. Novak has always spoken about her difficulties in Hollywood, the unhappy experiences on movie sets, her resistance to being typecast and her choice, eventually, to leave Hollywood, when her career was still thriving. I interviewed Kim a few year back, on the telephone, and it was rather thrilling. The husky voice of "Vertigo," "Bell, Book and Candle," "Picnic," etc, was instantly recognizable. There was something wistful behind the voice, though Kim was in a merry mood, discussing the brutal studio chief Harry Cohn and her favorite leading men. But Mr. Osborne got something startlingly new out of Kim. She admitted to suffering from bipolar disord ...
