Tobey Maguire: "Movies Now Have More To Do With An Aesthetic, Than They Do With A Performance" – There has already been a lot written about the studio shift to blockbuster movies, which has made the playing field for smaller films — at least among the majors — a more rarified ground. And that of course has a direct affect on the kinds of films that audiences get to choose from, but it also means that as an actor, there are fewer parts with depth and complexity going around. 6 years 29 weeks ago via jetli

Why Tobey Maguire Thinks There’s a Lack of Young Male Movie Stars – In a 2011 Vulture article, we sized up the sparse field of young leading men in the movies and plaintively asked, “Where Are the New Leos, Tobeys, and Jakes?” Three years later, that drought has only gotten worse. While the movies can boast a plentiful array of bankable female superstars ... 6 years 29 weeks ago via donnieyen

Review: The "Great" Gatsby

9:30 AM 5/10/2013 by Sara Vizcarrondo
Baz Lurmann’s Great Gatsby is garish and bright, chocked with the bling you hoped he’d throw around like it’s cheap—and it is.
