    Amos Barshad

    Amos Barshad

    In 2011, little-known British director Rupert Wyatt took table scraps - a long-doddering franchise; a generally questionable prequel approach; James Franco, genius scientist - and whipped us up a feast. Rise of t...

  3. Rejoice: Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Are Rebirthing the Amazing &l...

    Amos Barshad

    Calling something "ahead of its time," usually, is pretty pointless: It's a phrase tossed out for little-watched critical darlings, and so translates most of the time, roughly, in nonpolitic terms, to "YOU DUMMIES WHO DIDN&#0...

    Amos Barshad

    Finally, finally, someone asked Matt Damon about Ben Affleck playing Batman. It was a bit malapropos: The reason Damon granted the interview with The Times of India is that he's traveling through the country plugging his organization, Water.org, whic...

  5. Weekend Box Office: Elysium Crash-Lands at the No. 1 Spot

    Amos Barshad

    Elysium is Neill Blomkamp's follow-up to his debut, District 9, which came out of nowhere in 2009 to make serious money and even snag a Best Picture nomination. Appropriately, the follow-up is right in line with Hollywood's embrace of the young Blomk...

    Amos Barshad

    Was the ahistorical irreverence of Inglourious Basterds not quite cheeky enough for you? Good news, then: George Clooney would like to take you back to WWII and show you a rollicking good time. The flick is Monuments Men, the latest writer/director/s...

  7. You Can Thank Crooked Tijuana Cops for Elysium

    Amos Barshad

    Hairless hero Matt Damon covers this week's EW in a story about Elysium, Neill Blomkamp's splashily postapocalyptic follow-up to District 9. And while the whole piece isn't online yet, the magazine has been kind enough to break off a crucial little n...

  9. The New York Times Takes Its Turn at the Today Show Pinata

    Amos Barshad

    Last month, New York Magazine laid out The Today Show’s dirty laundry. Oodles of details about the infighting between Ann Curry and Matt Lauer spilled out, and, for NBC, your basic everyday public shaming was piled onto the severe financial sti...

    Amos Barshad

    Four years ago, director Neill Blomkamp, then not yet 30, came out of nowhere (well, technically, "came out of South Africa") to drop District 9, a modestly budgeted sci-fi flick that somehow managed to be simultaneously sharp and funny and super sad...

    Do you remember thinking the phrase "Steven Soderbergh is making a Liberace biopic with Michael Douglas and Matt Damon for HBO" sounded ridiculous when the project was merely in development? Well, wait till you see moving footage! Based on Behind...

    Amos Barshad

    For 10 years now, Jimmy Kimmel (a Friend of Grantland) has been signing off with a dismissive nod to a certain A-lister: "Our apologies to Matt Damon, we ran out of time." This endless, ruthless bumping of Mr. Jason Bourne has led the two down some p...

    Amos Barshad

    In 2011, Rise of the Planet of the Apes nabbed nearly a half a billion in worldwide box office revenue, birthed a new star in Caesar (the CGI chimpanzee), and taught us all the importance of cookie-ing rocket. In short, it was unexpectedly great and,...
