Miriam “Midge” Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan) faces more obstacles in her comedic career. She must also face how her choices affect those around her. William Makepeace Thackeray’s classic novel, “Vanity Fair,” has been adapted into a seven-episode series. The story set in the early 1800s follows Becky Sharp, who is determined to do anything it takes to leave her impoverished life behind for one in the heights of English society.

In ancient Greece, actors wore masks, the two most famous of which — those representing comedy (the smile) and tragedy (the scream) — live on to this day on the SAG Awards' statuette, "The Actor." Those masks are equally sized, but, in the present time, not necessarily equally valued. For as long as there have been movies, comedies have tended to draw big audiences, but tragedies — or dramas — have received more, as Rodney Dangerfield would put it, respect. Probably for this reason, many who achieved their first success in comedy — actors, as well as writers and directors — have at some point sought to transition into drama. This was a cliche as far back as 1941, when the great comedy writer-director Preston Sturges made Sullivan's Travels, a film about Hollywood's top director of comedies striving to make a socially relevant drama — at least until he sees how laughter enriches the lives of people who have little else, at which point he returns … [Read more...] about Oscars: Do Voters Reward Actors Who Jump Genres?

11 minutes ago We've got a full slate of movies this time around with four flicks hitting the big screen in wide release. It's folks heading back for GEDs, Yetis searching for humans, amusement parks of death, and a modern-day retelling of a classic. Get ready for Smallfoot, Night School, Little Women and Hell Fest. Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer. Let's take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer. Kevin Hart regularly seems to be starring as a normal guy who gets thrown into seriously bizarre circumstances. In Central Intelligence he unwittingly teams up with Dwayne Johnson to join the CIA and save the world. In Ride Along, he gets to, sort of, become a cop with the brother-in-law from hell. In Get Hard he preps Will Ferrell for prison life. You get the point. The guy makes his bones on being funny in over-the-top comedies. This one is no different, with Hart entering the most ridiculous version of … [Read more...] about This Rotten Week: Predicting Night School, Smallfoot, Hell Fest And Little Women Reviews
