He’ll receive the kudo at the 29th Annual Asc Awards on Feb. 15 at the Hyatt Regency Century City.

Bailey, whose credits include “Ordinary People,” “The Big Chill,” “As Good As It Gets” and the upcoming “A Walk in the Woods,” is not only still active in his discipline — not always the case with past Lifetime award recipients — but is quite active in the showbiz community as a mentor, scholar and ambassador for the profession. His blog, “John’s Bailiwick,” is one of the more distinguishing features of Asc’s website, he has lectured at UCLA and is currently fulfilling VP duties at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, where he oversees the »

‘Twin Peaks’ Cast, Crew Celebrate Unseen Footage Release

17 July 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From David Lynch to the Log Lady, Laura Palmer’s mom and dad and Laura Palmer herself, it was a darn good reunion at Silver Lake’s Vista Theater Wednesday night for the release of “Twin Peaks — The Entire Mystery” on Blu-ray. Almost 90 minutes of outtakes and deleted scenes from 1992′s “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me” have been compiled into to nearly an entire new movie’s worth of material that answers a few questions left hanging in the feature film capper to the cult classic TV series.

Lynch introduced the footage with a signature non-sequitur poem. “Tonight I would like to speak about wood,” the director intoned, “Much happiness can be had from observing a tree.”

Many of the cast members hadn’t seen each other in years, so there was much hugging and catching up. In addition to Log Lady Catherine Coulson, Ray Wise (Leland Palmer), Grace Zabriskie »

We introduce the new show 'Ask Drew' and we need your help to make it work

31 March 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The video team here at HitFix constantly impresses me with not only the volume of work that they produce, but also the quality. We've gotten very lucky with the people we've hired, and they make any of our collaborations both easy and fun. Last week, they approached me about a new ongoing feature that they wanted to do, and tomorrow, we're going to shoot the first episode of "Ask Drew," which is exactly what it sounds like. I am constantly asked questions via e-mail and Twitter and in our comments section, and I feel like I never fully answer all of them, something that makes me feel terrible. I am grateful for each and every reader of the work we do here at HitFix, and if I can answer something, I try to. To that end, we are going to try something a little different here starting tomorrow. I want »

A New York Winter’s Tale Review

21 February 2014 7:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Akiva Goldsman’s screenwriting résumé makes for curious reading. On the one hand, here we have someone who penned the Oscar-winning screenplay for A Beautiful Mind; on the flipside, he also helped write 1997’s Batman & Robin, widely regarded (with good reason) as one of the worst superhero films ever made. For his latest project – an adaptation of Mark Helprin’s beloved novel A New York Winter’s Tale – Goldsman takes on directorial duties for the first time in addition to writing and producing, and there’s little doubt as to which column this film resides.

The nonsensical narrative revolves around Peter Lake (Colin Farrell), an orphaned thief in 19th century New York who is on the run from his demonic mentor Pearly Soames (Russell Crowe). Seemingly cornered by Soames’ gang, Peter escapes with the assistance of a magical flying white horse (which he promptly dubs ‘Horse’). On his way out of town, »

Film Review: ‘Winter’s Tale’

11 February 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Angels and demons. A man who doesn’t age. A snow-white pegasus. Colin Farrell’s hair. In every respect, “Winter’s Tale” is a movie rife with mysterious and unexplainable phenomena — elusive supernatural occurrences that its characters insist on describing as miracles. But the real miracle will be if audiences manage to suppress their giggles during this enormously cloying, sledgehammer-subtle feature directing debut by longtime writer-producer Akiva Goldsman, whittled down from Mark Helprin’s vastly richer, century-spanning novel of the same title. Agreeably daft at times, but more often painfully trite in its attempts to impose some grand narrative design on the story of two grievously ill young women and the man who may hold the key to their salvation, Warner Bros.’ Valentine’s Day release could nonetheless seduce viewers willing to go along with its offbeat romantic-fantasy elements, provided they don’t wander in expecting Shakespeare.
