HAIL, CAESAR: PRETTY TO LOOK AT, NOT SO PRETTY TO SIT THROUGH

It’s got a great cast and Technicolor visuals, but the Coen brothers’ movie Hail, Caesar! is as lame as the title. What could be more fun than a Hollywood studio loaded with stars and drama in 1951? The Coens drained most of the fun out of it with heavy doses of religion, morals and politics, but most of all, their elitist view of early Hollywood was just NOT FUNNY. It fell flat. Two redeeming features: Tilda Swinton’s Lilli Anne inspired suits, and a cute singing cowboy named Hobie, played by Alden Ehernreich (above) struggling to play a drawing room socialite.

    There aren’t any “heavy doses of religion, morals and politics”.
    There is satire of religion, morals and politics in this movie.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
