All Bets Are Off: Top Ten Films About Las Vegas

18 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Las Vegas…the hotbed haven where dreams of high rollers are realized among the glitzy bright lights, the element of chance and luck and the adrenaline for instant fortune. But there is a deception to Sin City that is overlooked–the isolation of a gambler’s anxiety and desperation, the false sense of confidence at the craps table and the swinging doors of the psychological lows more so than the rewarding highs.

Still, Las Vegas has its excitable aura–both innocence and guilt–where one arrives to skillfully manufacture their financial profile or go bust. In some instances, the hedonistic expectations are defined in other fun, precarious ways. It is no wonder that Hollywood has come calling to put its distinctive spin on the capital city of adult entertainment. For decades, the movies have made Las Vegas its backdrop for wonderment, degradation, intrigue, comical curiosity and soul-searching revelations.

William H. Macy on Shameless, Directing Sex Scenes, and Winning a SAG Award

27 February 2015 6:57 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

William H. Macy recently won a Screen Actors Guild award for his role in Showtime’s Shameless, but after making his big-screen directorial debut on last year’s indie Rudderless, what he really wants to do is direct. The 64-year-old directed Shameless’s March 1 episode and spoke with Vulture about doing nude scenes, Sports Night, and whether he’s watched FX’s Fargo.How did it feel to win a SAG award for Shameless?Of all the awards, that one means the most to me because those are my peeps. I feel like we crossed some kind of a threshold. Shameless is a rough show, and it’s not for everyone, but it’s also beautiful. I’m hoping winning this SAG means some of my co-stars will start to get recognition, like Emmy Rossum. She’s been spectacular for five seasons, and it’s about time somebody gives her something made of metal. »

26 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Once you’re in with David O. Russell, you’re really in. The Oscar-nominated director’s next film, buzzy biopic Joy, will reunite him with American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook stars Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro, ensuring another round of Oscar nominations for them all. Luckily, though, it won’t be all familiar faces for Russell: Sideways actress Virginia Madsen has just joined the cast, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.

The film, set for a prime awards season release on Christmas Day this year, will focus on Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano (Lawrence), who began inventing at a young age and eventually hit it big with the Mop and Huggable Hampers, in addition to more than 100 other patents. As her empire grew, Mangano also juggled the responsibilities of playing single mom to three children.

The Grift of Love: Ficarra & Requa’s Perfunctory Take on the Art of the Con

Those hoping for a scintillating update on the con-artist sub-genre will most likely be sorely disappointed with the latest film from directing team Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, Focus (not to be confused with the Arthur Miller novel that was made into a chilling film version with Laura Dern and William H. Macy, 2001), with displays artistry that feels more akin to watching a children’s magic show with all those standardly familiar tricks. There may not be a rabbit pulled out of a hat, but its romantic inclination seems uprooted from a similar realm. There is a certain degree of pizzazz, however, thanks mostly to rare glimpses of playful, organically achieved chemistry courtesy of its charming leading lady, but as much as the film can be lauded for nimbly avoiding mention of its interracial romance (still rare in studio fare, »

There was a time when Felicity Huffman was so petrified of marriage that almost anything seemed preferable. Luckily for her husband, William H. Macy, she eventually became more scared of not getting married.

Joan Rivers Honored by Daughter Melissa with Touching Red Carpet Tribute

22 February 2015 5:35 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Nearly three months after Joan Rivers unexpectedly died last September, her presence has been felt on every red carpet during the past awards season. The comedian, who was 81 at the time of her death, is often credited with coining the phrase "Who are you wearing?" and made must-watch television of the pre-shows that were typically consider filler programming before she stormed the carpet in early '90s. Rivers's daughter, Melissa, paid tribute to her brassy, iconic mother in a video tribute that aired on E! during Sunday afternoon's Academy Awards pre-show.

11 February 2015 11:53 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Where does your soul go after you die? Walter knows. He's the self-proclaimed son of God who can tell just by looking at someone whether or not they'll go to heaven or hell. But regular life isn't so easy to figure out, as you'll see in the first trailer for the appropriately titled "Walter."  Starring Andrew J. West, Justin Kirk, Neve Campbell, Leven Rambin, Milo Ventimiglia, Brian White, Peter Facinelli, Virginia Madsen, Jim Gaffigan and William H. Macy (phew), the story finds our hero, a movie ticket-taker, facing a couple of human problems: he's got feelings for the candy counter girl but can't figure out how to approach her, while he's also dealing with a ghost stuck in limbo who doesn't know which way his final fate will lead. Luckily, Walter has a psychiatrist of sorts to help him out. The film arrives in limited release on March 13th as »

Oscar Nominees Blur Lines Between Big and Small Screens

5 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the divide between film and TV becomes increasingly difficult to discern, it’s far less uncommon to see well-known TV actors playing juicy roles on the big screen. And now that TV is no longer the death knell it once was for performers hoping for a film career, some of the industry’s best talent is emanating from TV. It’s also the medium actors are most frequently recognized for. As frontrunner supporting actor nominee J.K. Simmons told Variety last year before “Whiplash,” with his breakthrough role, opened, “It’s rather sobering to realize more people have seen my Farmers Insurance commercials than everything put together.”

Among the year’s acting Oscar nominees, several are known for their series work, including Steve Carell (NBC’s “The Office”), Benedict Cumberbatch (PBS’ “Sherlock”), J.K. Simmons (TNT’s “The Closer,” NBC’s “Growing Up Fisher”), and Laura Dern (HBO’s “Enlightened”). Patricia Arquette »

StreamFix: 5 Philip Seymour Hoffman Titles to Watch Right Now

2 February 2015 6:02 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Philip Seymour Hoffman, a man once described as "the best of us" by fellow actor William H. Macy (see below), died a year ago today. If ever an actor warranted a full-oeuvre review, it is Psh. Celebrate his tremendous cinematic legacy with these five titles on Netflix right now. "Punch Drunk Love"  Remember when Adam Sandler starred in one of the most touching movies you've ever seen? I know, your brain has since tried to erase that moment out of sheer incomprehensibility. With the exception of "Boogie Nights" (in which Psh is also incredible), "Punch Drunk Love" might be the most universally beloved Paul Thomas Anderson movie.  "Almost Famous" Lester Bangs remains the definitive rock critic of the '70s, and Psh's portrayal of the grizzled journo is just one facet of what makes "Almost Famous" enchanting. Frances McDormand, Kate Hudson, and even a wee Zooey Deschanel play fascinating characters »
