"12 Years," "Dallas Buyers Club," "Enough Said" Big Winners with Women Journalists! Big Loss for "The Counselor," Cameron Diaz

20 December 2013 11:47 AM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

The Alliance of Women Film Journalists has announced the winners for the 2013 Eda (Excellent Dynamic Activism) Awards! And predictably, by now, Steve McQueen's "12 Years a Slave" took the top honors with McQueen taking home the best director trophy, and Lupita Nyong'o the best supporting actress honor.

The great team of Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto for "Dallas Buyers Club" emerged victorious with their wins for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor respectively.

Nicole Holofcener's "Enough Said" won two for best woman director and woman screenwriter for Holofcener.

Ridley Scott's "The Counselor," on the other hand, did not get love...at all! It won the Hall of Shame and The Movie You Wanted to Love But Just Couldn't awards. Its star, Cameron Diaz took home the Actress Most in Need of a New Agent award. Yikes! But they're true though!

The Five Best Martin Scorsese Films

11 December 2013 9:57 AM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Hollywood has always had a peculiar way of treating its artists. Usually after celebrating an initial spark of genius, the studios, media, or loyal fans often watch the once promising talent fizzle out with a bang, or more times, with a quiet whimper. Either way, it remains a difficult feat to stay relevant in Hollywood. Martin Scorsese is an example of the rare filmmaker who has been working for over forty years and continues to challenge himself while keeping audiences on their toes.

‘Dallas Buyers Club’ Review

23 November 2013 3:13 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner, Jared Leto, Steve Zahn, Dallas Roberts, Griffin Dunne | Written by Craig Borten, Melisa Wallack | Directed by Jean-Marc Vallée

Having death at your door can change a person. Certain priorities go by the way side, while others are quickly brought to the forefront. This exact phenomenon occurs in Jean-Marc Vallée’s latest film Dallas Buyers Club, where Ron Woodroof a full-blooded hard-living Texan and part-time rodeo bull rider has to deal with the devastating effects of the HIV virus. Inherently this based on a true story is full of sentimental drama and intricate conflicts. The issue remains how to handle all these multifaceted parts, and it is that question which consistently impedes the film. A little bit of focus would have gone a long way in collectively bringing everything together. Dallas Buyers Club  is unquestionably a film worth seeing. The performances alone make it a must »

Dallas Buyers Club – The Review

14 November 2013 7:31 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

As we near the holiday movie season, it’s time to delve into fairly recent history. Not as recent as Captain Phillips or The Fifth Estate, though. Let’s go back to a decade that’s getting a whole lotta’ nostalgia love these days, the 1980′s (hey, it’s the setting for the hit ABC sitcom “The Goldbergs”). But it wasn’t all Et, the A-Team, and Culture Club. A terrific documentary from last year, How To Survive A Plague, took us back to the early part of the decade when we all became aware of the AIDS epidemic. A pretty scary time that brought out the worst in many people. Intolerance and ignorance ran rampant. But, somehow it brought out the best in others. The new film, Dallas Buyers Club, is a drama based on the life of one such man who somehow became a better human being as he confronted his own mortality. »

Top 10 Best Worst Days in Cinema

30 October 2013 3:56 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

There have been some great days in films. Some truly inspiring, wonderful days that we rejoice over, as we watch on as our favourite characters revel in the beautiful perfection of a glorious day. Conversely, there have been some terrible days. Horrid, destructive and upsetting days – that cause our protagonists anguish and distress and with The Purge coming out this week we thought it might be a good idea to look at some of the ‘Best Worst Days in Cinema’!

We’re counting down days that can be as emotionally disquieting as they can comedic or enjoyable. Either way, if our characters are having a bad time of it, then that’s good enough for us.

10 – After Hours (1985)

Dallas Buyer's Club Featurette

Matthew McConaughey takes us behind the true story of real-life crusader Ron Woodroof in this new featurette from Dallas Buyers Club, opening in select theaters this Friday, November 1st. Co-stars Jared Leto and Jennifer Garner also talk about their characters in director Jean-Marc Vall&#233e's upcoming drama.

Matthew McConaughey stars in Dallas Buyers Club as real-life Texas cowboy Ron Woodroof, whose free-wheeling life was overturned in 1985 when he was diagnosed as HIV-positive and given 30 days to live. These were the early days of the AIDS epidemic, and the U.S. was divided over how to combat the virus. Ron, now shunned and ostracized by many of his old friends, and bereft of government-approved effective medicines, decided to take matters in his own hands, tracking down alternative treatments from all over the world by means both legal and illegal. Bypassing the establishment, the entrepreneurial Woodroof joined forces with an unlikely band »

If you’re anywhere near the Los Angeles area this Saturday, you may be interested in checking out “An Evening with the Makers of An American Werewolf in London,” a special event that features a screening of the film and a number of guests, including John Landis and Rick Baker:

“The moon seemed perennially full on screen in the 1980s, a decade that saw more than its share of classic—and not-so-classic—werewolf movies including Wolfen (1981), The Howling petrology (1981-1989), The Company of Wolves (1984), Silver Bullet (1985) and Teen Wolf (1985), to name a few.  Towering above them all is writer-director John Landis’ An American Werewolf in London (1981).  A defining film of the era,American Werewolf proved wildly successful thanks to Landis’ deft balance of comedy and horror, while Rick Baker’s Academy Award–winning makeup effects set the bar for technical mastery.  The film’s influence can be felt in »
