Limited Release September 17, 2018
Synopsis: Becky Something (Elisabeth Moss) is a '90s punk rock superstar who once filled arenas with her grungy all-female trio Something She. Now she plays smaller venues while grappling with motherhood, exhausted band mates, nervous record company executives, and a new generation of rising talent eager to usurp her stardom. When Becky's chaos and excesses derail a recording session and national tour, she finds herself shunned, isolated and alone. Forced to get sober, temper her demons, and reckon with the past, she retreats from the spotlight and tries to recapture the creative inspiration that led her band to success.

Anchored by a towering, unflinching performance from Golden Globe and Emmy winner Moss, and supported by a stellar ensemble cast, Her Smell examines the grit, grace and gravitas of an unforgettable fictional rock star crashing down to earth into the harsh realities of mid-life. With his incendiary and deeply humane fifth feature, writer-director Alex Ross Perry (Listen Up Philip, Golden Exits) pumps up the volume and shines a light on the terrifying moment when superstardom wanes - and quiet becomes the new loud.

Starring Ike Barinholtz and Tiffany Haddish
From the producers of GET OUT & BLACKkKLANSMAN comes a raw and riotous political comedy for divisive times

A controversial White House policy turns family member against family member in THE OATH, a savagely funny dark comedy about surviving life and Thanksgiving in the age of political tribalism. When Chris (Ike Barinholtz), a high-strung 24-hour progressive news junkie, and his more levelheaded wife Kai (Tiffany Haddish) learn that citizens are being asked to sign a loyalty oath to the President, their reaction is disbelief, followed by idealistic refusal. But as the Thanksgiving deadline to sign approaches, the combination of sparring relatives, Chris’s own agitation and the unexpected arrival of two government agents (John Cho and Billy Magnussen) sends an already tense holiday dinner gathering completely off the rails. As timely as it is outrageous, THE OATH is a gleefully wicked reinvention of the traditional holiday comedy for our divisive political times.

Director M. Night Shyamalan

GLASS – In Theaters January 18, 2019

M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals—2000’s Unbreakable, from Touchstone, and 2016’s Split, from Universal—in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller: Glass.

From Unbreakable, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from Split are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast.

Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.

Joining the all-star cast are Unbreakable’s Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard, who reprise their roles as Dunn’s son and Price’s mother, as well as Golden Globe Award winner Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story series).

This riveting culmination of his worldwide blockbusters is produced by Shyamalan and Blumhouse Production’s Jason Blum, who also produced the writer/director’s previous two films for Universal. They produce again with Ashwin Rajan and Marc Bienstock, and Steven Schneider and Kevin Frakes, who executive produce. Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum also serve as executive producers.

A Blinding Edge Pictures and Blumhouse production, Glass will be released by Universal Pictures in North America on January 18, 2019, and by Buena Vista International abroad.

Birds of Prey stars Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, a character she first portrayed in 2016's Suicide Squad. Robbie will also be producing the film.

Quinn will be joined by Black Canary, Cassandra Cain, Huntress and Renee Montoya and a Batman villain, Black Mask, is reportedly set to be the primary antagonist in Birds of Prey.

Cathy Yan, who wrote and directed Dead Pigs, was cast as director earlier this year and Christina Hodson was announced to be the screenwriter. Hodson recently completed the script for the upcoming Transformers spinoff film, Bumblebee.

As for Suicide Squad 2, which is set to be released next year, it has been rumored to be Ben Affleck's final appearance as Batman. via


The 71st annual Cannes Film Festival ran from May 8-19th where the opening film was a thriller “Everybody Knows” (Iranian writer/dir Asghar Farhadi) starring husband & wife Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem) set in Spain. Important side note: Cruz & Barden received the same pay to do the film. The film is about a woman who comes home to Madrid for a family wedding with her husband & children and one of them is kidnapped. There’s a complicated relationship with an ex-lover who she turns to for help. It has US distribution under Focus Features, but I couldn’t find a release date for American theaters.

Netflix The Other side of the Wind  Orson Welles

One of the big controversies leading up to Cannes this year was Netflix pulling out. They had planned to debut five films at Cannes this year, including Orson Welles’s “The Other Side of the Wind” his incompleted film which had been in legal battles since 1979 before his death and then taken up between his daughter and mistress… That’s a story too long to get into. Anyway, Cannes wanted the films to screen during the festival, but they would not be eligible for Cannes competition because it seems the French film industry insists upon a three-year window between theatrical release and streaming; and of course, steaming is Netflix’s bread and butter, so they loudly pulled the films. Netflix exec still attend Cannes to bid on films without distribution. Not sure what they picked up.

I very much enjoy this journalist, ALICIA MALONE, who often does a daily vlog, which she posts to her YouTube channel when she goes to Sundance and Cannes. (above is Vlog 1 of 7 from Cannes 2018) She doesn’t just review the films she really gives you a taste of what it’s like to attend, making certain to show a lot of beautiful scenery; interviews fellow film critics while in line for the screenings; includes snipits of panel discussions - you really feel like you’re at Cannes. She’s who I want to be when I grow up, only she’s a lot younger than I am, so she’s who I should have been if I had followed the right path in life.

She started out a freelance film writer/blogger/host in Australia. But she soon got opportunities to become a correspondent with American networks such as MTV, Fandango, AMC Movie. She’s still a freelance film journalist where she’s often called on to do segments on MSNBC & E, she interviews a lot of celebrities and now she’s the host of TCM’s Film Struck.

Alicia Malone BackWard and in Heels

She also wrote a book that came out last August called “Backwards and in Heels”, about the past, present and future of women in Hollywood.  I plan to bring it along as my book to read on the plane for my upcoming trip to London. Which means, I'm still basically blogging on vacation, it's a sickness :D

Before the awards were announced she chose her 5 favorite films from Cannes 2018: SHOPLIFTERS dir: Hirokazu Kore-Eda which won Palme d’Or | COLD WAR - dir: Pawel Pawlikowski which won Best Director  | GIRL - dir: Lukas Dhont which won Caméra d’Or | LETTO - dir: Kirill Serebrennikov | GIRLS OF THE SUN dir: Eva Husson

The big Grand Prize Winner at Cannes this year was Spike Lee’s BLACKKKLANSMAN based the biography of Ron Stallworth a African-American police officer in the Colorado Springs Police Department who in 1979 went undercover and infiltrated the KKK. It sounds like such a fantastically crazy true story. Looks like this may put Spike Lee back on the A-list filmmaker's map again. The film gets wide release this summer August 10th.  Can't wait!

26th Annual PHILADELPHIA FILM FESTIVAL Coverage (Oct 19-29, 2017)

Tinsel & Tine's Look at : The 26th Annual PHILADELPHIA Film Festival By Le Anne Lindsay, Editor POST UPDATE #PFF26 DAY 1...

Food n Film: BURNT

Food n Film: BURNT
Bradley Cooper has more than charisma, he has an over abundance of Chi, which radiates out from him; so for me, this role as temperamental and damaged chef Adam Jones, who also inspires great love and admiration from those around him, works on the level of characterization. In fact, I think he's among a very short list of actors who would be able to pull off being so self-involved and yet likable. Doesn't hurt that he really speaks French too! READ POST

Food n Film: CHEF
Much of the movie centers around the father/son relationship, and how much they learn from each other. But the real star of the film is all the food preparation, every other scene made me groan with want of everything up on that screen! Particularly the perfectly roasted and rubbed brisket, the crispy fat of the pork belly, sizzling bacon and the much ballyhooed Chocolate Lava Cake. READ POST

...young Hassan, a soulful-eyed boy with lush, thick eye lashes, places his face into the sea urchin basket, and breathes in the exotic briny scent. He sticks his fingers into the aquatic ooze, takes it to his mouth and is transfixed by the taste. The vendor, oblivious to the thrusting arms of frenzied women, notices the boy and realizes he is the only one worthy of this oceanic prize; he is the one who can “truly taste.” ... READ MORE

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE
Six months into my 38th year of this life, I had my first panic attack. I didn't know that's what it was until months later. Symptom after symptom starting piling up on me until there were days I could no longer move my arms or neck. The doctors told me I was suffering from an auto-immune condition that they felt was most likely Lupus. And so began my much deeper journey and exploration into the world of spirit, alternative medicine, yoga, meditation and Eat, Pray, Love. READ POST

About This Blog

is about discovering what I find pleasing in screening & eating - in case you missed it, the name is a play on Tinseltown using the Tines of a Fork.

Feel free to send me info on a film or new restaurant you'd like me to highlight.

Will there ever be a cap on movie prices?

Will we one day pay $20 a pop?

Why don't we pay on a scale?

A crap movie like everything Adam Sandler has ever done should cost about $4.50.
Big action movies like"Lord of the Rings", "Iron Man," "Transformers" are worth $10.
Woody Allen movie or something like "Silver Linings Playbook" $6-$7.
A chick flick or light comedy $5.75 and most Indie Films $5.25.

You could even do it by seasons - all summer block busters from May to August - $10
Sept - November 15th $3.50 - $4
Back to $10 for Thanksgiving and Christmas etc...

Or you can do it by A Actors ($9 - $10), B Actors ($6 - $7) TV actors on the big screen ($3.50 - $4)

Surely I'm not the first person to realize this makes sense. Has it been voted on in the Motion Picture Industry and then vetoed? If so, why?
