  • TVfanatic
The Stand is shaping up to be one of the series of the decade.

Emma Stone movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘La La Land,’ ‘The Favourite,’ ‘Birdman’
Emma Stone celebrates her 30th birthday on November 6, 2018. The Oscar-winning actress has extra reason to rejoice this year, since her new film “The Favourite” could land her back in the awards race when it’s released on November 23. In honor of her birthday, let’s take a look back at 12 of her greatest films, ranked worst to best.

Stone began acting at an early age, making television appearances as a teenager in such shows as “Medium,” “Malcolm in the Middle,” and “Lucky Louie.” She transitioned to film with a prominent role in the high school sex romp “Superbad” (2007). Just three years later, she was competing at the Golden Globes as Best Comedy/Musical Actress for her lead role in “Easy A” (2010).

It took four more years for Stone to reap her first Oscar bid: Best Supporting Actress for “Birdman” (2014). She may have lost to Patricia Arquette (“Boyhood”), but the groundwork

Maniac Blurs Line Between Movies and TV More Than Ever

David Crow Sep 25, 2018

We examine how Emma Stone and Jonah Hill's new Netflix show, Maniac, may be the most cinematic TV series ever produced.

This article contains Maniac spoilers.

We’ve been here before. That was the immediate sensation at seeing the underlying Npb labs wherein the fantastical drug tests of Maniac occur. With the circular white table surrounded by a series of wide chairs, and a central overhead light that’s buttressed by a ring of cabinet-shaped television screens, everything about the set is intimately familiar for those who’ve viewed one of the most iconic scenes in science fiction history—the one where an alien pops out of John Hurt’s chest and onto the dinner table in Ridley Scott’s Alien.

However, this homage, which is one of the most overt in Maniac, is more than just an intertextual reference that has been reduced to the

Woody Allen

Mars Films chief Stéphane Célérier, the long-time distributor of Woody Allen’s work in France, has publicly denounced the media’s treatment of the director over allegations he molested his adopted daughter.

In a bold move, Célérier, who rarely speaks to the press, voiced his shock at the coverage of Allen by the world’s media and on the social networks, in an editorial in French weekly news magazine Le Point.

He is one of the first high-profile industry players connected to Allen to speak out in the director’s defence.

“I have been shocked by the wave of hate provoked by the Woody Allen affair, particularly in the United States and on the social networks, and by the lack of rigor by certain media outlets and the pack which condemns without looking into the full

Colin Firth said he won’t appear in any more Woody Allen films, telling The Guardian in a statement: “I wouldn’t work with him again.”

Firth, who starred in Allen’s Magic In The Moonlight in 2014, is the latest actor to turn their back on the controversial 82-year-old filmmaker.

Allen’s adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow accused him of molesting her in an attic when she was seven years-old in a TV interview with CBS yesterday (January 18), prompting the director to deny the claims.

Allen was never charged in relation to the alleged incident and issued a statement denying the allegations.

He said: “The Farrow family is cynically using the opportunity afforded by the Time’s Up movement to repeat this discredited allegation, that doesn’t make it any more true today than it was in the past. I never molested

Woody Allen

Update: Dylan Farrow has spoken of alleged sexual assault by her adoptive father Woody Allen in her first TV interview on the subject on Thursday (January 18), prompting the director to deny the claims.

Farrow told CBS’s This Morning that on August 4 1992 Allen took her into a small attic crawl space in her mother Mia Farrow’s Connecticut home and molested her.

“He instructed me to lay down on my stomach and play with my brother’s toy train that was set up,” Farrow, 32, told interviewer Gayle King. “And he sat behind me in the doorway and as I played with the toy train, I was sexually assaulted.”

Allen was never charged in relation to the alleged incident and issued a statement denying the allegations.

“When this claim was first made more than 25 years ago, it was thoroughly investigated by both the Child Sexual Abuse Clinic of the Yale-New

‘Wonder Wheel’ or: When Autopilot Woody Allen Goes on Autopilot

When Woody Allen makes a movie these days, it’s akin to watching a dart in midair as it readies to hit the board. When he makes a hit, it hits (‘Midnight in Paris‘, ‘Blue Jasmine‘, ‘Café Society’, even older hits such as ‘Crimes and Misdemeanors‘); when the project flops, oh boy, does it flop (‘You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger‘ and ‘To Rome with Love‘ [you know, the one Ellen Page said she regretted working on. She was right, just not for the reasons she believes]); and sometimes, there’s a middle ground where the movie can fall into either group (‘Magic in the Moonlight‘ and ‘Irrational Man‘). ‘Wonder Wheel‘ marks three milestones for Mr. Allen: his forty-eighth major motion picture as he turns, a reunion with iconic Italian cinematographer Vittorio Storaro after their previously acclaimed collaboration and directing Kate Winslet, certainly one of the most iconic actresses of today, in what

How Emma Stone Left Home at 14, Completed ‘Project Hollywood’ and Won Her First Oscar
As Emma Stone stood onstage at the Dolby Theatre accepting her Best Actress award at the Oscars on Sunday, she might think back to where it all started: A ninth grade history class in Scottsdale, Arizona.

That’s where Stone, 14 at the time, decided she was dropping out of school and moving to L.A. to become a star. “I had this Howard Beale-like moment,” she told The Hollywood Reporter about her realization, citing Peter Finch’s character’s iconic meltdown in Network. “It’s the last period of the day, and I have a revelation that I needed to

Don't Freak Out, but Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield Are Both at the Critics' Choice Awards
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield ended their three-year relationship back in October 2015, but they reunited (sort of) at the Critics' Choice Awards in La on Sunday. Both stars were in attendance for the big show while representing their respective films, the musical comedy La La Land and the drama film Hacksaw Ridge, which Andrew took home an award for at Sunday night's ceremony. We haven't seen the two at a high-profile event together since the NYC premiere of Magic in the Moonlight in July 2014, but they were spotted out in London after Andrew's 33rd birthday in August of this year. At the time of their split, sources close to the couple said, "They still have a lot of love for one another and they are on good terms with each another and remain close. It just wasn't working." It's clear the two didn't break up on bad terms, as Andrew

‘Cafe Society’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Steve Carell, Corey Stoll, Ken Stott, Sheryl Lee | Written and Directed by Woody Allen

Woody Allen is the kind of director that has cemented a style that is his very own. When the opening music begins to play and the letters appear on the screen you know that you’re about to watch a Woody Allen film. Café Society, Woody’s latest, begins in much the same way as his other cinematic offerings, and the familiar territory almost feels comforting.

Café Society has a cast of both Woody Allen alumni and first-timers, and it’s a good one. Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart reconnect after appearing together in Adventureland and American Ultra. Steve Carell (The Office), Corey Stoll (Midnight in Paris) and Ken Stott (The Hobbit) among others grace the screen in a gathering of acting talent that really dive in head-first and do their director proud.
