Awards Daily ‘s Sasha Stone, Boxoffice.com‘s Phil Contrino and myself, at it again. Michael Caine, Taxi Driver, Natalie Portman, Sucker Punch, IKEA moving guys, Don’t Look Now, annoying hums, Notorious, Win Win, cats, etc. Here’s a non-iTunes, stand-alone link.

    I’m waiting for Jeff’s inevitable Amy Adams post.

    Yet another talented thespian forced to work in one of those funny-book movies to make end’s meet.

    When will it END??

    Another example to Jeff’s great comment about the introduction of characters in old movies such as Notorious is the intro of Bogart’s Rick in Casablanca.

    Also, as to the issue of Portman and Black Swan, you should read Jennifer Homan’s negative review of the film in a recent issue of the New Republic. Besides being trained as a historian, Homan was a professional dancer and thus has a lot of credibility. She actually said that Portman was too thin (!) and that she doesn’t use her arms like a professional dancer would.

    I enjoy these conversations, and the sound quality is better than last time.

    “Homan was a professional dancer and thus has a lot of credibility. She actually said that Portman was too thin (!)”

    Sounds like a bunch of horseshit to me.

    I actually liked Michael Caine’s accent in “Hurry Sundown.”
