I remember when Titanic (you know, the original Twilight?) was about to be released and everyone thought it was a potential mega-bomb of all time—it had cost way too much and been delayed way too often. Then it became the biggest movie of all time and made household names of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. I even edited this magazine about Leo, using early-years photos:

Inception's Tom Hardy engaged to Charlotte Riley, displays a refreshing bit of honesty when asked if he's had sex with men:
"As a boy? Of course I have. I'm an actor for fuck's sake. I've played with everything and everyone. I love the form and the physicality, but now that I'm in my thirties, it doesn't do it for me. I'm done experimenting but there's plenty of stuff in a relationship with another men, especially gay men, that I need in my life."
Joy Behar caught the Inception screening the same night I did. She was fussing with her phone as the lights went down, eliciting a sharp rebuke to "Turn off the game!" from someone nearby. She snapped, "All right—calm down!" Later, she seemed to say she liked Leo but was "terrified" by the movie; not sure she liked it.
In Touch (September 21, 2009) brought to my attention the fact that Soleil Moon Frye (1) has 1,000,000 Twitter followers (whoa!) and that (2) she gifted her followers by dressing up as Punky Brewster for the first time in a million years:
In 2007, Premiere Magazine offered its 20 Most Overrated Movies Of All Time list, with the Oscar-winning Sam Mendes drama American Beauty (1998) at the top. (Then Premiere died, so go figure.) Probably it deserves a spot on the list, if not at #1, but I kind of suspect his latest—the searing drama Revolutionary Road starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet—is likely to earn a place on some sort of Underrated Movies list thanks to its highly stylized feel and relentlessly bleak tone. I hope I'm wrong, because I loved this unique, hypnotic cautionary tale.
