After the year “Shame” star Michael Fassbender has had, the GQ Breakout Man for 2011 should be in a good mood. Still, anyone who has seen Fassbender (“X-Men: First Class,” “Jane Eyre”) in British director Steve McQueen's harrowing 2008 film “Hunger” or sees him in the excellent, intense, NC-17-rated sex addiction tale “Shame” opening Dec. 2 would be surprised, as I was, to walk into an Elysian hotel room to find Fassbender and McQueen dancing. “Let's do the interview dancing, all three of us,” Fassbender tells me,...

"The Spoils of Babylon" miniseries is "far superior to anything on television today," writer-producer-director-financier Eric Jonrosh says of his "masterpiece. " The bloated blowhard played by Will Ferrell may be overstating things, but "The Spoils of Babylon" ( 9 p.m. Jan. 9, IFC; 3.5 stars out of 4 ) is an entertaining and spot-on spoof of the overdone potboiler miniseries of the 1970s and '80s. From the Funny or Die comedy outfit and airing on IFC, the six-part parody ostensibly is the first-time broadcast of a shortened version of Jonrosh's lost, 22-hour miniseries based on...

When I heard about Baz Luhrmann's remake of “The Great Gatsby” a bubble of bile rose up in my throat. The director of such opulent visual messes as “Moulin Rouge” and “Australia” bringing to the big screen F. Scott Fitzgerald's melancholy meditation on the emptiness of American wealth and empire as it went about immolating in its own excess? My bile retreated momentarily when I heard that my boy, DiCaprio would play Gastby opposite Tobey McGuire as Nick and Carey Mulligan as Daisy.

IFC has gone all out for its miniseries parody "The Spoils of Babylon," assembling an A-list cast to tell "the epic tale of the powerful and complicated Morehouse Family" and introducing their characters with multiple trailers. On Thursday, the network released a new trailer focusing on Tobey Maguire's Devon Morehouse that's shown below. "My story is an epic one, this is my life, or what remains of it," he says in voiceover in the video. He goes on to talk about his adopted father, Morehouse family patriarch Jonas Morehouse...

*1/2 (out of four) Breaking news: When you get married, you will inevitably deal with your spouse's family and exes in some capacity! This is the major insight of writer-director Edward Burns' inane “Newlyweds,” which has nothing in common with “Bridesmaids” but shares a lot with many other sources. Burns (“The Brothers McMullen”) bites conflict from a “Seinfeld” episode, a line from “Chasing Amy” and needlessly has characters address the camera ala “The Office” to...

**** (out of four) Obviously the sex-addiction drama “Shame” has been rated NC-17 because of its nudity (something everyone experiences every day) and sex (something many people wish they experienced every day). Much has been written about the pro-violence, anti-sex rating system's foolishness, so we'll leave that alone. What deserves more conversation is star Michael Fassbender (Rochester in "Jane Eyre," Magneto in "X-Men: First Class"), who's fantastic in everything; in the riveting "Shame," he...

** (out of four) For all the exaggerated rumors swirling about Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), you'd think he was Chuck Norris. He's a German spy! He kills for fun! He's richer than God! Does he also pay his bills with a roundhouse kick to a bank vault? A main point of F. Scott Fitzgerald's arguably overrated Jazz Age classic “The Great Gatsby” is that Gatsby's not the enigma he appears to be. He's merely a man in love with the past and his past love, Daisy (Carey Mulligan)

***1/2 (out of four) Not many filmmakers could avoid coming off as crass while ending a scene with a character holding up a cat, seeking to prove this is not her lost pet, and bellowing, "Where's its scrotum?!" Writers/directors/brothers Joel and Ethan Coen do so with ease. That's their sense of humor and their distinct vision of the world's profound messages and puzzling mysteries. So fans of the filmmakers ("No Country For Old Men," "A Serious Man") will recognize the state of mind in the Coens' first effort...

Good news: We won't have to see Baz Luhrmann's take on “The Great Gatsby” without the kind of elaborate 3-D effects and pop music soundtrack F. Scott Fitzgerald surely would have wanted. Sure, Luhrmann's (“Moulin Rouge”) known for his visual style, and a re-imagined version of a classic can often best a dully straightforward adaptation that only treads water until the next, virtually identical remake of the story comes around a few years later. I suppose I give Luhrmann credit for having a vision, though it's debatable if filmmakers should always bend material to...

Asked to choose if great songwriting or great performance ability is more important for a musician, "Inside Llewyn Davis" star Oscar Isaac hesitates, wavers, then decides. "I'd say definitely songwriting. Because if you perform a [bleepy] song, then just 'cause you're really good at performing it ... " says the 33-year-old actor, who plays the film's titular folk singer, at the James Hotel. "You can put diamonds on a turd, I guess. " In other words, you can try, but you can't fake quality.
