some say the blog will end in fire, some say in ice

GeekRex on great sounding movies of 2014. So glad they included Wild but I don't understand the defense of Interstellar's sound mix given how difficult it sometimes was to hear the dialogue

Gurus of Gold I believe there's an update today but look at where things stand now in the big Oscar categories

Av Club Sarah Jessica Parker may be returning to HBO sitcom glory via Divorce (no, not from Matthew Broderick. On the show!)

In Contention Antonio Sanchez is not happy about his disqualification from Best Original Score for Birdman and why shouldn't he be. Their rules are so arbitratily enforced. Remember when Gustavo Santaolla won his second consecutive Oscar for a film Filled with pre-existing music (Babel) and his score only being a small percentage of it.

31 Great '80s Movies on Netflix Streaming

22 December 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

What's in Netflix's '80s grab bag? Swoony Merchant-Ivory films; a trio of John Hughes romantic comedies; early films with Sean Penn and Matt Dillon; Oscar-winning turns by Meryl Streep, Jodie Foster and Daniel Day-Lewis; and a few classics you already know by heart.

Mixed in are probably a few critically acclaimed films you've never seen but always meant to, whether it's B-movie fun like "Big Trouble in Little China" or ultra-arty Nc-17 fare like "The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover."

(Availability subject to change. DeLorean and pink prom dress not included.)

1. "A Room with a View" (1986) Nr

Helena Bonham Carter is torn between freethinker Julian Sands and stuffy fiancé Daniel Day-Lewis in this sumptuous (and very funny) Merchant-Ivory period romance.

2. "The Accused" (1988) R

It's tough viewing, but Jodie Foster is mesmerizing as a rape victim who faces down her assailants in court.

3. "Bad Boys" (1983) R

Charlie Sheen Brings 'Ferris Bueller' Role to 'Goldbergs'

18 December 2014 8:18 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since The Goldbergs debuted on ABC last year, the hit comedy series, which is set in the 1980s, has referenced several hit movies and TV shows, such as Star Wars, Say Anything, The Goonies and an episode from earlier this month that involves the hoverboard from Back to the Future Part II. People reports that the show will continue that tradition in the second half of Season 2, with an upcoming Ferris Bueller's Day Off episode that will guest star Charlie Sheen, paying homage to his role as "Boy in Police Station." The first photos have been released from this episode, set to air in early 2015, which shows Charlie Sheen interacting with Hayley Orrantia's Erica.

The episode will follow Barry (Troy Gentile), who decides to skip school one day to create his own epic "day off." Barry's plans go severely awry, and when Pops (George Segal) and Adam (Sean Giambrone »

17 December 2014 6:57 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Each year, the Library of Congress selects 25 films to be named to the National Film Registry, a proclamation of commitment to preserving the chosen pictures for all time. They can be big studio pictures or experimental short films, goofball comedies or poetic meditations on life. The National Film Registery "showcases the extraordinary diversity of America’s film heritage and the disparate strands making it so vibrant" and by preserving the films, the Library of Congress hopes to "a crucial element of American creativity, culture and history.” This year’s selections span the period 1913 to 2004 and include a number of films you’re familiar with. Unless you’ve never heard of "Saving Private Ryan," "The Big Lebowski," “Rosemary’s Baby” or "Ferris Bueller's Day Off." Highlights from the list include the aforementioned film, Arthur Penn’s Western "Little Big Man," John Lasseter’s 1986 animated film, “Luxo Jr.," 1953’s “House of Wax, »

From the Gotham Awards floor: Overheard and witnessed at the Oscar season kickoff

2 December 2014 6:26 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Aimlessly wandering around Cipriani Wall Street, the lavish home of New York City’s Gotham Awards, I wondered if anyone knew the awards season was in full swing. That morning, a critics group handed out the first batch of accolades. Present company would soon receive statues swaying the race towards buzzed about thespian thoroughbreds. It was "on."  Yet, this crowd didn’t have that awareness. This was way too chill. I was the only one wondering if "Under the Skin" could upset "Birdman," weighing options in anticipation of the question mark-filled Breakthrough Actor category. Somehow, a run-in with "Boyhood" star Ellar Coltrane ended with us wondering out loud, "What does it all mean?" in the existential sense.  So this is why everyone was downing bellinis. The Gotham Awards owns its quiet-before-the-storm identity. The show isn’t the Golden Globes drunken circus, nor is it top tier enough to warrant an intense competitive edge. »

Warren Beatty Emerges from 13-Year Hiatus with Howard Hughes Film

25 November 2014 10:26 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Warren Beatty has not appeared onscreen in a new film since the romantic comedy "Town and Country," a costly 2001 box office flop. But now, as revealed in the latest issue of Closer Weekly, he's been working on a new directorial effort, and has come out of retirement to turn his decades-long obsession with reclusive American tycoon Howard Hughes into a movie. The project, according to Closer, focuses on the reclusive mogul's May-December romance with a young ingenue, played by 25-year-old actress Lily Collins ("Mirror Mirror"). Tessa Farmiga, Chace Crawford, Alec Baldwin, Matthew Broderick, Martin Sheen, Candice Bergen and Beatty's wife Annette Bening also star. Matthew Broderick tells Closer that the film, which cost $27 million on a 72-day schedule, has finished shooting. The yet-to-be titled project remains shrouded in secrecy (allegedly only Collins received the full script), but one thing we know for sure is that Beatty himself, 77, will play Hughes, »

Mike Nichols Movies: 18 Essential Films You Should Watch Right Now

20 November 2014 8:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Few directors can be said to have changed the way films are made, but Mike Nichols, who died Wednesday at 83, was one of them. His first film, "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (1966), ended decades of Hollywood censorship of adult content and freed the movies for mature language and subject matter ever after. His second film, "The Graduate," was the first serious mainstream movie to feature a rock soundtrack (spawning Simon and Garfunkel's hit "Mrs. Robinson") and, through its casting of Dustin Hoffman, expanded Hollywood's notion of what a leading man ought to look and sound like.

Nichols wasn't born in America (he and his family escaped from Nazi Germany when he was a child), but he was one of the best chroniclers of contemporary America -- its politics, its aspirations, its dreams, its aristocracy, and its successes and failures -- in movies. His youth in Manhattan as the son »

Matthew Broderick Reveals the Priceless Secrets to His Lasting Marriage With Sarah Jessica Parker

It seems like every week we find ourselves talking about another big Hollywood breakup. Fortunately, we don't have to worry about any trouble between Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker. On Wednesday's Meredith Vieira Show, the actor was asked about his successful marriage to the Sex & The City star. Turns out, the two share an unbreakable friendship. "We really are friends beyond everything else and we talk a lot," he told Meredith Vieira when sharing his advice to couples. "Keep talking I guess, I know how cliché that is.

8 Reasons to Support Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS

5 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Whether you’re angling for a selfie with Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick or a “Cabaret” poster signed by Alan Cumming, there are many ways to give to the Broadway community’s most exuberant charity organization. Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS is currently in full swing, with its fall fundraising efforts—culminating in the always exciting 26th Annual Gypsy of the Year competition—and an array of other theatrical events available for theatergoers and philanthropists alike. On Dec. 8 and 9, the New Amsterdam Theatre will play host to hundreds of New York’s most talented ensembles, whose “gypsies” will perform original skits, songs, and choreography. Broadway personality Seth Rudetsky will once again host this grand conclusion to the six weeks of fundraising. “Last year’s Gypsy of the Year competition raised $4.3 million from 56 Broadway, Off-Broadway, and national touring companies’ fundraising,” Tom Viola, executive director of BC/Efa, told Backstage. “So we’ve just begun, »

60 Years of Godzilla: A History and Critique of the Greatest Monster Movie Series in Cinema

4 November 2014 3:35 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

**Massive spoilers for every Godzilla movie, with the exception of the 2014 reboot, and Mothra follow**

August 6th and 9th, 1945 forever changed the course of history. When the first nuclear bombs were dropped in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, World War II ended, but a new fear was born that dominated the thoughts of all men, women, and children for decades to come. The Cold War, atomic bomb testing, a cartoon turtle telling children to “duck and cover”, and this new technology that had the actual potential to literally end the world changed the perception of what was scary. Art reflects life, so cinema began to capitalize on these fears. Gone were the days of creepy castles, cobwebs, bats, vampires, werewolves, and the other iconic images that ruled genre cinema in film’s earliest decades. Science fiction was larger than ever and giant ants, giant octopi, terror from beyond the stars, and »
