Pixar Disney, D23 2013
The last few years have been a dark time for Pixar. Their once untouchable reputation—"Toy Story 3" was both a Best Picture nominee and a billion-dollar grosser—has taken increasing knocks over the last few years, with an original film that (unfairly, we'd suggest) got middling reviews, and a pair of sequels that few asked for, and that not many more thought were deserving on the studio's creative legacy.

10 Of Woody Allen's Best Female Characters
There are a few stock criticisms often leveled at a new Woody Allen film: his characters are all neurotic messes; his films are relentlessly white and upper-middle class; when he tries for profundity, he flounders; when he leaves Manhattan, he never achieves anything like the heights of his New York-set stories; his eye for his own approximate generation's foibles and concerns has always been sharper than that for the much younger... the list goes on. But however much you may have your knives out, you just can't accuse Allen of not writing decent roles for women.

Following the path of “Something’s Gotta Give” and “The Bucket List," “And So It Goes” is the latest effort from Rob Reiner, and he has a similarly stellar starry cast and crew to match those aforementioned hits.

Hollywood is a weird place. While it can be known for being forward-thinking or progressive in its politics, willing to adapt to social changes and put new stories on the big screen, like the Oscar-nominated "The Kids Are All Right" that offers a refreshing and modern look at families, on the other hand, it can be strangely conservative. And so, we'll forgive you if when watching the trailer for "The Big Wedding" you might think it was exhumed from a previous decade (or two).

It's hard to belive that despite all the illustrious leading men Diane Keaton has starred with in the course of her career -- Al Pacino, Jack Nicholson, Woody Allen, Robert De Niro, Warren Beatty -- she somehow never crossed paths with Robert Redford. And while it's kind of exciting they are finally pairing up, it's too bad that it will be in service of such an uninspired project.

Given the film was first announced over a year ago, it's not much of a surprise that there has been a casting change on "The Look Of Love." But perhaps more surprising is that most everyone else has stayed on board.

There's a basic appeal to the idea of the team-up movie. Since the dawn of fan fiction, people have dreamed of combining their favorite heroes, and it's proved to be lucrative big-screen niche, from "Godzilla vs.King Kong" and "Alien vs. Predator" to next summer's "The Avengers." So it only makes sense that we'd eventually get a female-driven version of the genre, and by combining a trio of the biggest stars in the rom-com world, along with an acting legend, that seems to be what the producers of "Gently Down the Stream" are doing: it's like "The Avengers," but with stars of terrible romantic comedies.

Would Like To Work With Diane Keaton Again, But Not Sure On WhatWoody Allen may be creeping up on his 80th birthday (he's 76 this year), but his work ethic shows no sign of letting up. He's directed 41 films in 42 years and, as usual, has started prepping for the next before the premiere of his latest, the Owen Wilson/Rachel McAdams topliner "Midnight in Paris." As revealed a week or so ago, the next will follow the recent trend in Allen's work, and be set in a major European city, with Rome following on from London, Barcelona and Paris.
