Even just an average Michael Mann film is still a Michael Mann film – which isn’t a bad thing in my book. The man has a unique style that has developed over his career that’s often described as gritty, in your face, and just plain cool. This is mainly in part due to his more recent use of digital photography that he embraced starting with the movie Collateral. It’s a storytelling choice that has produced a mixed bag of films but nevertheless feel like Mann films (though “man films” would be appropriate as well due to his knack for tough guy stories). Blackhat gives fans of Mann’s macho style what they have come to expect: a cold but mainly likable anti-hero, a world of elite cops and criminals, intense shoot-outs, and skylines lit with neon lights at night. All of this mind you, filmed with shaky camera »

Black in the Saddle: Mann’s Cyber Thriller Forgets Thrills
Though clearly uninterested in providing conventional thrills with his first theatrical release in six years, director Michael Mann’s Blackhat unfortunately forgets to be as uniquely innovative and engaging with its narrative as it is with its showy feats. A return to visual form for the aesthetically inclined auteur, sporting perhaps the best digital photography from the director’s latter filmography to date, the film is littered with schlocky convenience, instances of miscasting despite committed performances, and, worst of all, it’s uniformly dull. A high minded tech thriller, one wonders how the It inclined could pick apart the film’s sometimes rudimentary logic. Mann and first time screenwriter Morgan Davis Foehl would seem to sidestep formula, but they simply replace structure with narrative sprawl and credibility stretching conveniences. One only has to point to the tired clichés of the »

I've already listed my top ten most anticipated blockbusters of the new year and now I'll take a look at the rest of the field as I've done my best to whittle things down to an even twenty films. So before you get in a huff that your favorite franchises aren't listed, just remember you can view all my anticipated blockbusters right here, I simply didn't know how to write the headline other than to just say these were my most anticipated movies without any further distinction. That said, I think I have a nice rounded list for you here. Obviously several from the major studios, but also a few overseas entries to spice things up. Plenty of Tom Hardy and Jake Gyllenhaal and a couple starring Rachel Weisz along with several of my favorite directors coming with new films for the new year. If you're wondering where films such »

If we have one complaint about Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's turn as hosts of the 2015 Golden Globes it’s that there wasn’t enough of them. And we wish they were meaner. So two complaints, but that’s it.
And the reason we wanted more of them was because — just like last year — their jokes were the best part of the show. From best to even best-er, here are the most Lol-worthy jokes from a very Lol-y show:
News: Uhhh, Jeremy Renner’s awkward comment about J.Lo’s boobs
9. Amy: “We should explain to all the people in the room — the Hollywood people — cake is like a, it's like a fluffy desert that people eat on their birthdays.”
Tina: “Oh, and birthdays are like a thing people celebrate when they admit that they have aged.”
Leviathan took home the award for best foreign language film on Sunday night. The award was presented by Lupita Nyong'o and Colin Farrell at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. "Ladies and gentlemen, thank you very much. We are absolutely happy," said producer Alexander Rodnyansky, who accepted the award with director Andrey Zvyagintsev. Added Zvyagintsev: "The more we think about fortunate fates of our movie, the more we believe it doesn't matter if you are Korean, American, Russian or French, a tragic story of an ordinary man who comes face to face with an indifferent system is absolutely universal." Leviathan was up against Ida, »

Once again, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be hosting the awards ceremony. (Scroll down for the full list of Golden Globes 2015 nominations.) Now, following a snafu on the Golden Globes' website, some have been betting on Ava DuVernay's Selma for Best Picture - Drama and Rob Marshall's Into the Woods for Best Picture - Comedy or Musical. Even though the tech company handling the site's graphics has taken full responsibility for the error, asserting that the 2015 "winners" were chosen randomly from the pool of Golden Globe nominees; they just weren't supposed to go live.

Golden Globes nominations 2015: TV list in full
With his third feature, 2009′s Dogtooth, Yorgos Lanthimos became the forefront of what’s coming to be known as the Greek Weird Wave, a handful of cutting edge, strange, and sometimes violent films from a country recently in the midst of extreme economic upheaval. Lanthimos took home the Un Certain Regard prize at Cannes that year, following a slowly building buzz that would eventually earn the film an Oscar nod for Best Foreign Language film the following year. Next, Lanthimos debuted another bizarre, expressly beautiful rumination on guilt with 2011′s Alps, nabbing Best Screenplay in Venice. Lanthimos also starred in Athina Rachel Tsnagari’s 2010 Attenberg. Now, he reunites with his Alps screenwriter for his English language debut, The Lobster, which has also been described as a case-study for inventive co-productions, with British, French, Greece, and Dutch money financing a production »

Sneak Peek a new motion poster from the Netflix/Marvel, 13-episode TV series "Daredevil", debuting April 10, 2015 starring actor Charlie Cox as blind lawyer 'Matt Murdock' aka costumed superhero crime-fighter 'Daredevil':
"It does take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe," said Marvel TV's Jeph Loeb . "It’s all connected... within the Marvel universe there are thousands of heroes of all shapes and sizes...
"...but 'The Avengers' are here to save the universe and 'Daredevil' is here to save the neighborhood."
"The way I like to think about it is that he is a man with fear", said Cox, "but he on a daily basis decides to confront that fear and to overcome it. So the title of ‘the man without fear’ is almost a title that the public in his world gives him just because of what he does. But inside himself, he’s very afraid at times. »

UK cinema in 2015 has plenty to recommend it. Here are 36 UK films of all genres to look forward to this year…
Dig past the litterfall of Kray Brothers biopics and tales of nubile teens on camping trips gone wrong, and you’ll unearth plenty for the UK film industry to boast about in 2015. From sci-fi romps and thrillers like Robot Overlords and Ex Machina to dramas like High-Rise, comedies like War On Everyone, spy flicks like Spectre and kids’ films like Bill, there’s no shortage of inventive, highly promising cinema coming from these isles.
We’ve included a few choice co-productions in 2015’s pick of the year’s most interesting-looking pictures, which bolsters our list in both size and breadth (and mostly means we Brits can claim partial credit for ace-sounding dystopian flick The Lobster).
In alphabetical order then, here are the 36 UK (or UK-ish) movies we’re excited about seeing this year… »
Most Hollywood studios have gotten smart about their film budgets, lowering them quite a bit over the past year. Which means we saw fewer box office bombs in 2014. Almost all of the big releases made at least a little bit of their money back, except maybe Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return. It only earned $18.6 million worldwide against it's $70 million budget. Winter's Tale and Vampire Academy were also big money losers over the past twelve months, but seeming disasters like Transcendence and I, Frankenstein actually managed to recoup their costs overseas. That doesn't mean these were good movies by any means. And some of the biggest blockbusters of the year shouldn't be considered masterpieces of cinema by any stretch of the imagination. In 2014, we couldn't really judge a movie by its earnings. But we could judge them by their critical and fan responses. Which is where Rotten Tomatoes comes in handy. »
Concept artist Warren Manser ("The Dark Knight Rises") has a great collection of concept art that he created for Mark Steven Johnson's ("Ghost Rider") 2003 superhero film Daredevil. The film starred Ben Affleck ("Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice") as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Jennifer Garner ("Butter") as Elektra Natchios and Colin Farrell ("Total Recall") as Lester Poindexter/Bullseye. Below, are some alternate costume designs for all three. I especially like Elektra's trademark red costume better than the black leather getup she wore in the film. There's also alternate red and dark grey/black costumes for Daredevil, which should pique your interest. Daredevil (2003) - For Daredevil, justice is blind, and for the guilty, there's hell to pay! Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner ignite dangerous sparks and nonstop thrills in this dazzling action-adventure about the newest breed of superhero. By day, blind »
