Good On You, Ashton Kutcher
Huffington Post - 10 months
Of all the things Ashton Kutcher has received flack for—Punk’d, Dude, Where’s My Car? His portrayal of Steve Jobs—I found it ludicrous he got pushback after the birth of his daughter. I don’t know if he made an official proclamation or if it was an offhand comment that went viral, but when Ashton announced he was taking a year off in order to be a parent—to be a Dad—a few folks went a little nutty. I read articles and opinion-pieces that took the slant: “Sure, he can just quit his job, he’s a super-rich celebrity. Must be nice. Real Americans can’t just drop everything like that.” Generally, the tone was spiteful, and reeked of resentment and jealousy. Well, I will be honest: I am jealous, but in a wistful, good-for-Ashton way. I travel for work; last year, I put over 30,000 miles on my car. I used to look for recognition for my efforts, but that was when I was young and egotistical. Now I search for security. Security for my family, for my kids to never know want....

Rules Don't Apply review – Warren Beatty's unbearable vanity project
Guardian (UK) - 10 months
Beatty’s first film in 15 years – co-written, produced, directed by and starring himself as Howard Hughes – is a plodding, airless exercise in narcissism Ludwig Wittgenstein once said that we cannot experience death because death is not an event in life. But then Wittgenstein never had to sit through this unbearable new film from Warren Beatty, his first in 15 years, co-written, produced and directed by its star, Warren Beatty, who may well be affecting a kind of kinship with his subject, the crazy but allegedly lovable billionaire recluse Howard Hughes.

Cleveland Cinematheque Presents 'Return of the Reviled' This Month
NPR - 11 months
The Cleveland Cinematheque’s 8 th Annual “Cleveland Cult Film Festival” kicks off this weekend, and the theme this year is “ Return of the Reviled .” In various films over the next two weekends, the series will features works from the writers of “Heaven Can Wait,” the director of “RoboCop,” and stars like John Travolta and Jennifer Lopez. Cinematheque Founder John Ewing says he tries to counter-program the Cleveland International Film Festival every April, and this year he decided to go in a slightly different direction. “I just decided to focus on four notoriously bad movies which nobody ever revives, and which I think people might be interested in giving a second chance to.” This weekend, it’s “ Moment By Moment ” with Travolta and Lily Tomlin plus “ Ishtar ” with Dustin Hoffman, Warren Beatty and Charles Grodin. Neither film has been on the big screen in years, and “Moment By Moment” has never been released on home video. Ewing says “Ishtar” has gained a following in recent years

Jimmy Kimmel Gives First Long Explanation About That Oscar Mishap
Huffington Post - 12 months
By now you’re aware that the 89th Academy Awards ended with “La La Land” erroneously being announced as Best Picture over “Moonlight.” The mistake was unprecedented for the Oscars and caused a beyond cringeworthy moment of confusion for everyone involved.  By now, it’s fairly clear that the PricewaterhouseCoopers accountant tasked with handing Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway the Best Picture envelope messed up the transfer. But given the still-unbelievable nature of what happened, it’s certainly understandable to want to keep hearing more of the details behind the flub. Award show host Jimmy Kimmel decided to give an interview to his friend Bill Simmons on The Ringer’s “Bill Simmons Podcast” Wednesday. The lengthy episode went live Thursday morning and it’s well worth your time if you’re at all curious about the situation. “Yeah, it is funny, because somebody said to me yesterday, ‘You better get your story exactly straight because you’re going to be telling this story fo...
