As for YouTube videos, the U.S. leader says that his daughters, Malia, 16, and Sasha, 13, turned him onto BatDad. "Whoever BatDad is out there, man, I was into your thing," Obama quipped.

His favorite Vine video, however, has to be of his wife singing "Turnip For What?"

The Ten Best Scenes of 2014

17 December 2014 1:50 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

"Boyhood" (Richard Linklater) Patricia Arquette as the mom of two kids over 12 years is movingly real and natural as the mother who shepherds her children through the breakup with their father (Ethan Hawke) and two turbulent marriages before emerging as a professional successful single woman--with an empty nest. Arquette's money scene comes near the end, when her son leaves for college and she admits, "I just thought there would be more." Arquette is a key window into this accessible and identifiable movie, for parents and children alike.  How rare that movies show what mothering is--the investment of time and energy and love and attention and yes, letting go when the time comes. This is the scene that will win Arquette the supporting actress Oscar, her first. --Anne Thompson "Goodbye to Language 3D" (Jean-Luc Godard) A spoiler with a purpose: In a handful of scenes which reinvent cinema, as he has »

Justin Chang’s Top 10 Films of 2014

17 December 2014 12:58 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Assembling a year-end top-10 list has always been a personal, even self-indulgent, ritual, a way of disguising a whimsical ranking of favorites as a carefully curated declaration of personal taste. At the risk of making things even more solipsistic than usual, let me begin by noting that the fraught relationship between artists and critics provided 2014 with one of its most compelling movie themes, with critics themselves — food critics, art critics, theater critics and, yes, film critics — figuring among the year’s most favored characters. And by favored, of course, I mean mocked, loathed and misunderstood at every turn.

In one of the most talked-about scenes in Alejandro G. Inarritu’s virtuoso backstage farce “Birdman,” a washed-up movie star named Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton) comes face to face with a notoriously nasty New York Times theater critic, Tabitha Dickinson (Lindsay Duncan), who calmly informs him that she’s going to eviscerate his new Broadway play, »

Best Supporting Actress Oscar Predictions 2015

16 December 2014 1:49 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

1. Patricia Arquette is the actress to beat. Her role as the mom parenting two kids over 12 years in Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" could well be considered a lead. By moving her to supporting, IFC figured--correctly--that she had a better chance of winning the category. Arquette is movingly real and natural as the mother who shepherds her children through the breakup with their father (Ethan Hawke) and two turbulent marriages before emerging as a professional successful single woman--with an empty nest. Arquette's money scene comes near the end, when her son leaves for college and she admits, "I thought there would be more." Arquette is a key window into this accessible and identifiable movie, for parents and children alike.   While Arquette, 46, has been a standout actress for years in such films as "True Romance," "Ethan Frome" and "Lost Highway," "Boyhood" is her highest-profile role to date and would »

Predestination (2015) Review

16 December 2014 11:58 AM, PST | Best-Horror-Movies.com | See recent Best-Horror-Movies.com news »

Predestination is a little bit like Looper but markedly more intricate in plot details. In fact its such a thought provoking film two viewings may be required to grasp each of the straws at our disposal. A time travelling tale of serial killers and a lifelong hunt the picture incorporates strong science fiction elements with thick strands of dark thriller. It isnt an outright horror film but its an engrossing blast that genre fans are likely to gravitate toward. Plus come on Ethan Hawke fronts the film and hes been winning over horror hounds for years thanks to pics like The Purge Sinister and Daybreakers. Why not leap into this everchanging landscape »

Birdman and Budapest top Critics Choice noms

16 December 2014 8:50 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

BirdmanBoyhood and a host of now regulars on the awards circuit were among the top films listed in the 20th Critics' Choice Movie Awards nominations Monday, but it was Wes Anderson's darkly whimsical The Grand Budapest Hotel that surprised with 11 nominations.

In addition to nods for the film, the direction, the script and the cinematography, star Ralph Fiennes was also recognized in two acting categories: best actor and best actor in a comedy.

Though beloved by critics and a box office success, The Grand Budapest Hotel was seen as a dark horse in the awards race due in part to its March release date. But after earning four Golden Globe nominations last week, the quirky film could be rising in awards stature as Hollywood awaits the start of Oscar nominations voting.

Birdman scored the most nominations, though, with 13 in categories such as best picture and best director. LeadMichael »

Indiana critics join 'Boyhood' love fest, erroneously deem 'Whiplash' script adapted

15 December 2014 11:22 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Though the Indiana Film Journalists Association have chimed in with the usual at the top, as "Boyhood" took Best Film and Best Director honors, their decisions in a few areas are pretty interesting. Ralph Fiennes for Best Actor, for instance, and "Under the Skin" for score. The runner-ups throughout are pretty nifty if you're getting tired of the usual. However, the group erroneously awarded "Whiplash" in the Best Adapted Screenplay category. Though there was a short film, Damien Chazelle's script was written prior to its production. The short, in fact, was simply a scene from the script filmed to raise funds for the feature. I think someone overthought that one. Anyway, check out the full list of winners below and lose yourself in The Circuit.

Toh!'s Top Ten Films of 2014 (Updated)

15 December 2014 11:13 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

2014 was a remarkable year for movies big and small, and in spirit, here are top 10 lists from Thompson on Hollywood staffers and contributors. Anne Thompson: 1. "Birdman" Alejandro González Iñárritu took on the most audacious cinematic feat of the year —and corralled a posse of actors with balls, lead by Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone, to nail his dissection of Hollywood and the fragile balance between ego and id—shot in exhilarating long takes. 2. "Boyhood" Richard Linklater dreamed up the story of a boy growing over 12 years, from six to 18, and cast Ellar Coltrane as the kid and Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke as his parents. No one else could have conceived, written and directed this daredevil feat.  3. "Mr. Turner" Mike Leigh took his genius method and applied it to his passion project about the great English painter Jmw Turner, channeled to perfection by Cannes Best Actor winner Timothy. »
