40. Empire Records
Directed by: Allan Moyle
Ah, the coming-of-age story. There was no sub-genre more hijacked for a quick buck in the 1990′s. In between the good ones (“Dazed and Confused,” “Boyz in the Hood”), the cheesy ones (“She’s All That,” “She Drives Me Crazy”), and the under-appreciated ones (“The Man in the Moon,” “Angus”), there were the middling ones that, if anything, boasted a cast that would go on to bigger, better things. Enter “Empire Records,” which is not only a coming-of-age story, but one that takes place at a record store, no less. Talk about the double dip. The entire film takes place over the course of one day, focusing on the employees, played by Anthony Lapaglia, Ethan Embry, Renee Zellweger, Rory Cochrane, and Liv Tyler. The independent record store is in Delaware – the hot spot of American music – and sees Joe (Lapaglia) allowing night manager Lucas »

Although fans finally got to see the first full trailer from Season 5 of Game of Thrones earlier today, the "Three-Eyed Raven" brings yet another "vision" from the viral website ThreeEyedRaven.com. Unlike many of the previous "visions," which featured bits of old and new footage, this teaser gives us all new scenes, featuring Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and one of her dragons, Ramsay Snow (Iwan Rheon) examining Reek and Melisandre (Carice van Houten) lost in deep though. It should also be noted that the last shot showcases a crate on a dock, which very well may be the same container that Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) was forced into.
In addition to this brief video, TV Line has released new photos from Season 5, featuring Daenerys, Dorian Martell (Alexander Siddig), Melisandre, Tyrion and Varis (Conleth Hill), Podrick Payne (Daniel Portman) and Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie), Tommen Baratheon (Dean-Charles Chapman) and Cersei »
Fresh off about 12 hours of leaked footage from IMAX screenings, HBO has finally released the official version of the Game of Thrones season 5 trailer. It’s an embed from Facebook, so you might want to hit the little full screen button, put on some headphones and crank the volume, because this ride is about to get a little bumpy… Watch the Game of Thrones season 5 trailer below and then we’ll discuss and share some photos. As we’ve noted several times in our coverage of Game of Thrones, season four went off-book quite a bit. Season five is about to take that idea to the next level, placing a number of characters on collision courses that aren’t exactly in George R.R. Martin’s source material. Most notably, Jaime Lannister (Nicolaj Coster-Waldau) is heading to Dorne to meet with Prince Oberyn’s brother Doran (played by Alexander Siddig) and a few of his daughters, known »

Putting a two-episode taste of HBO’s epic “Game of Thrones” series on IMAX screens has only served to make the argument for weekly theatrical release of each upcoming episode of author George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” fantasy juggernaut. The Season 5 trailer that aired following Thursday night’s Los Angeles IMAX screening of Season 4 episodes “The Watchers on the Wall” and “The Children,” drove the point home.
“It’s the first television show to be shown in the IMAX format,” series star Sophie Turner, who plays gentle Sansa Stark, said in introducing the 10 p.m. »

Before Season 5 of HBO's Game of Thrones debuts this spring, fans will get the unique opportunity to watch the final two Season 4 episodes on the big screen in IMAX theaters across the country, in a one-week run from January 29 to February 5. Game of Thrones will be the first TV series ever to be screened in the IMAX format, and fans who attend these screenings will also get the first look at the Season 5 trailer. Before this weeklong event gets under way tomorrow, IMAX has released a new featurette where series creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff offer high praise for the IMAX format, revealing how it changes the viewing experience in such an immersive environment.

Well, it's definitely happening. Paul Feig's new take on Ghostbusters will be arriving in cinemas on July 22nd 2016, with production starting this summer. The plan, as had been reported before, is to shoot the film once more in New York, the spiritual home (ahem) of the Ghostbusters movies.
Paul Feig announced the news via his Twitter account, and he's also confirmed the lead cast of his movie.
Furthermore, over at Film Divider, they have a few details of the characters in the new film. Don't read on if you want to stay spoiler-free.
Right. The site reckons that Wiig will be playing Professor Erin Gabler, »
After revealing the main cast members on his Twitter page earlier today, Ghostbusters director Paul Feig also used the social media platform to announce the July 22, 2016 release date. The reboot, which stars Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, will be going up against Warner Bros.' medieval adventure Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur, starring Charlie Hunnam, and Lionsgate's action reboot Power Rangers on that same date. Ghostbusters also falls between the animated sequel Ice Age 5 on July 15, 2016 and the Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel on July 29, 2016.
Just hours after the cast members were confirmed, another report surfaced that Sony wants Bill Murray to play Martin Heiss, a professional ghost debunker who tries to prove that these new Ghostbusters are faking the videos that they're posting online. The character is described as similar to William Atherton's Walter Peck from the original Ghostbusters. Peter Dinklage, »
Well, it’s either a very exciting or very frightening time to be a Ghostbusters fan. On the one hand, we now have a pretty solid cast list for the all-female Ghostbusters reboot. On the other hand…well, the phrase “a Ghostbusters reboot” pretty much says it all. But as this film is definitely happening now, it’s time to start digging into this cast list and finding out who (or what) everyone is playing.
There are four main parts on offer here, each of them differing in a big way from the original two films. Here’s the breakdown (via The Playlist):
Erin Gabler is an academic on the tenure track at Columbia. Her former colleague and co-author is… Abby Bergman, who’s more on the pop parapsychology side of things, and pursues ghosts for a living. Jillian is Abby’s ghost hunting partner. Patty is an Mta »

Earlier today, it was confirmed that director Paul Feig has cast his Bridesmaids stars Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy in the highly-anticipated Ghostbusters reboot, along with Saturday Night Live breakout stars Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. There have also been rumors of a primary male role that has yet to be cast, with Hitfix reporting that the filmmakers are eyeing Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage to play the villain, described as a mechanical genius, and original Ghostbusters star Bill Murray to play another pivotal character named Martin Heiss.
Not much is said about the villain, but Bill Murray's Martin Heiss is said to be similar to William Atherton's Walter Peck from the original, a "professional ghost debunker." After he sees some of the videos these new Ghostbusters post online, he becomes determined to prove that they're fake, and "ends up at odds with the team through the whole film. »
When you're at Sundance, it can sometimes feel like the entire rest of the world has disappeared. It was surreal watching the news about the big east coast snowstorms unfolding on random TVs while walking around Park City, and it sort of felt like there was a real-time disaster movie happening that we were just hearing about in passing. It's also unusual for news about a future film to pierce the Sundance bubble, but when the news is that they've cast the new Ghostbusters for director Paul Feig, that's worth taking a break so I can offer up some thoughts and a little bit of context for what viewers can expect from the film. According to the report filed today by Borys Kit, the central quartet will be played by Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon. Obviously Feig is comfortable with Wiig and McCarthy, so I'm not »

If you're betting on "Boyhood" to win big at the upcoming Academy Awards, think again! Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" was deemed to be the big Oscar frontrunner but a double-dose of guild awards over the weekend tamed those prospects down. First, the Producers Guild of America gave their top honor to Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman," and the Screen Actors Guild followed suit!
"Birdman" took home the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award! But, since the movie is about acting, this award is just fitting.
My biggest surprise, and it'a welcome surprise indeed, was "The Theory of Everything's" Eddie Redmayne taking home the Outstanding Male Actor trophy. Sorry Michael Keaton! I think Redmayne truly gave the Performance of the Year award!
Last night saw the 21st annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) awards take place. The elite members of both film and television arrived in their finery to see who had won the coverted statues. Eddie Redmayne did the UK proud as he picked up the award for Best Actor. Meanwhile Julianne Moore added another trophy to her cabinet for her performance in Still Alice and Birdman took home the big award for cast in a motion picture.
Highlights from the television portion include Orange is the New Black scooping two awards and our very own Downton Abbey getting the ensemble cast prize. Read the full winners below, did your favourite win? Are these results an indicator of how the BAFTA’s and Oscar‘s might play out?

Amongst this years Screen Actors Guild Award winners are Eddie Redmayne, who won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of Steven Hawking in The Theory of Everything, Birdman, which took home Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, and Orange Is the New Black, whose star Uzo Uduba claimed the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series category.
Redmayne, dedicated his award to sufferers of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Als), the illness which Hawking himself suffers from. He also went on to congratulate fellow actors such as Bradley Cooper, David Oyelowo and Timothy Spall.
It has been a big weekend for Birdman, which not only won best ensemble »

Quick…name a favorable film where the landscape is run by (or at least partially include) the demographic of little people as part of the instrumental storyline? C’mon…it should not be that difficult, okay? If you want to mention say Darby O’Gill and the Little People then that would fine. How about Bad Santa or Poltergeist for that matter?
In That’s Good Enough, Short Stuff: Top Ten Films Featuring Little People we will take a look at some of the mini megastars that inhabited these movies and contributed their fair share of entertainment value to the on-screen proceedings. The debate as to whether some of these selected films featuring these pint-sized performers are considered positive, exploitative or dismissive are not up for discussion (although one of these considerations could apply in the minds of a few folks). Instead, we want to celebrate the inclusion of »
