Winona Ryder Yells Lines From ‘Heathers’ At Her TV

Winona Ryder yelling 2Winona Ryder isn’t that girl in class that raises her hand first. As far as celebrities go, she’s highly private and reclusive, especially in the years following Girl, Interrupted (1999) and her shoplifting trial (2002).

Thankfully, the beloved icon who debuted in 1986’s Lucas opposite Corey Haim and Charlie Sheen, later blazing brooding witty trails with Beetlejuice, Mermaids and Reality Bites, has recently put herself in the public eye just a tiny bit more than we’re used to.

In a brief Q&A with Parade, Ryder admitted to watching and reciting dialogue from her old movies when they’re on TV.

“Well, yeah! Now they’re considered golden oldies, which is awesome,” says Ryder, 41, whose latest film is The Iceman (in theaters May 3). “I was watching Little Women recently, and I didn’t want to get up for fear of missing something. And Heathers is like my own Rocky Horror Picture Show; I recite the lines when it’s on. It may seem odd, but I think it’s because they’re really good movies.”  Continue reading “Winona Ryder Yells Lines From ‘Heathers’ At Her TV”

Don’t You Dare Forget About Winona Ryder!

Winona Ryder New York 2013 Raven-haired recluse Winona Ryder left her house on Tuesday for the premiere of Disconnect in New York and again on Wednesday for a sunny stroll with a friend.

No one important cares that she stole from Saks Fifth Avenue or did oxycodone, but I get that she only stars in one or two movies a year because at a certain point in her career the spotlight became the Ring and she became Frodo.

I just wish she’d work a tiny bit more. Does the woman not still radiate coolness and youth? In a line-up you’d guess I was 41 and she was 27. Can you think of a single actress with a more impressive resume, in terms of versatility?

The Crucible, Beetlejuice, Little Women, Alien Resurrection, Girl, Interrupted, Dracula, Heathers, Friends, Black Swan, Edward Scissorhands, Reality Bites, Mermaids..? Didn’t think so.

Video: The Killers – “Here With Me” (Feat. Winona Ryder)

Tarantino has Uma, Scorsese has De Niro, and Burton has Johnny and Winona. Ryder hasn’t appeared in the flesh for a Tim Burton-directed feature since 1990. “Here With Me” gets fans a fraction closer.

Brandon Flowers and The Killers enlisted Burton to direct this nearly five-minute long video about a sometimes blonde/sometimes brunette starlet, her fan, and a wax figure.  Continue reading “Video: The Killers – “Here With Me” (Feat. Winona Ryder)”

The ‘Frankenweenie’ Soundtrack Is Awesome

I’m sure by now you all know that Tim Burton has a new animated film coming out about a canine brought back to life by his child companion, Victor.

You also probably didn’t care because like every other sensible person, you realized that Tim Burton hasn’t made an amazingly entertaining movie since 1999’s Sleepy Hollow.

I tend to assume that Frankenweenie (which is actually a full-length version of a short film Burton made in 1984) will be a repeat of Corpse Bride. Fun, but ultimately just, heartless and missing something.

Recently I found out that the one thing it won’t be missing is a cool soundtrack.

And I don’t mean that it’s “cool” in that old man way that actually means it’s comprised completely of Randy Newman, Phil Collins, or Stevie Wonder songs.  Continue reading “The ‘Frankenweenie’ Soundtrack Is Awesome”

Anne Hathaway Cut Her Hair, Resembles Winona

Anne Hathaway chopped off all her hair, joining the pixie likes of Michelle Williams and Emma Watson. It’s a slow day for news, and a Sunday (clearly I write all my articles the day before, that’s why they all seem outdated) so give me a break.

I think she looks a tad like Winona Ryder. Well, less cool. To be fair, no one is/was as cool as Winona Ryder or Juliette Lewis.

Hathaway reportedly cut her hair to prepare for her role as Fantine in Les Miserables.

The Les Mis prostitute thing was done by Uma Thurman in 1998 (I used to rent it from the library all the time) and I’m thinking that Tom Hooper’s 2012 adaptation will simply have a bigger budget and not much else.  Continue reading “Anne Hathaway Cut Her Hair, Resembles Winona”
