'The Imitation Game' Review: Almost There, But Not Quite

19 December 2014 5:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"The Imitation Game" is one of those movies that feels important and groundbreaking, yet falls apart the more you know about the events it portrays. It's a movie that's perfectly fine, yet could have been extraordinary, and that generates a level of disappointment that might mask what for many is one of the best films they've seen all year.

The film tells the story of the remarkable scientist and inventor Alan Turing, a man with great internal conflict and a vast intelligence. Along with his colleagues, Turing helped change the outcome of the Second World War, as his mathematical prowess and the construction of an early computation device could be used to crack what was thought to be unbreakable Nazi Codes.

The film stars Benedict Cumberbatch in a role sure to see many plaudits at awards time, with a very real possibility he'll be taking home the Best Actor trophy at the next Oscars. »

Interview: Morten Tyldum, Graham Moore of ‘The Imitation Game’

11 December 2014 10:49 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Telling the story of Alan Turing – the British closeted gay man who broke a Nazi code in World War II, saving millions of lives – was put upon the talented shoulders of two disparate individuals. Screenwriter Graham Moore – from Chicago – and Norwegian director Morten Tyldum collaborated on “The Imitation Game.”

It was a bit of luck and happenstance that brought the two creators together (see below), but their passion for properly vetting the complex story and distilling it to the audience was a wise and loving process. Graham Moore was born in the South Side of Chicago, but knew of Turing from his other life in computers and science. Morten Tyldum is a notable filmmaker from Norway, who was looking for his first American project. They were supported by the amazing performance of Benedict Cumberbatch in his portrayal of Alan Turing, and a host of other fine British actors, including Keira Knightley. »

Screen Actors Guild Awards recognize ‘Birdman’, ‘Boyhood’, ‘Modern Family’

10 December 2014 1:22 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations were revealed Wednesday morning, serving as yet another precursor on the long road to the Oscars.

In the film categories, Birdman was the big winner, scoring four nominations, including for Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone, as well as the collective ensemble cast. Boyhood followed right in its footsteps with three nods for Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and another ensemble nomination.

The big surprises of the morning’s nominations started with Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler, a bubble contender in a crowded Best Actor race, Jennifer Aniston for Cake, a bubble contender in a disappointingly less crowded Best Actress race, Robert Duvall in the poorly reviewed The Judge and Naomi Watts for St. Vincent (Watts was in Birdman as well, but that must’ve slipped SAG’s minds).

SAG Nominations and Announcement of A New Feature

10 December 2014 7:38 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

As some of you may know, I'm a bit of a jack(ass) of all trades. I follow the film industry for Lr, and critique films. But I'm also an actor, I front a rock band, I'm a DJ, film editor, and director as well. Basically, when it comes to entertainment, there's nothing I don't do. For some time now, I've been mulling over bringing some of my other interests to Lr, and I'll be starting with the SAG Awards. How? Well, I've been a member of SAG for 6 years now and I also am part of the voting process. That means every year I am sent screeners of all the films being considered for awards.

Here's where a new running feature comes into play:

As I start receiving these screeners, I will write special reviews for each one and publish them here. Then, as we near the voting deadline, »

How to be SAG Snubbed Even When You're Nominated

10 December 2014 7:06 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

As is our annual tradition we like to peruse the credits of the SAG Ensemble nods to see who got left out despite their film's nomination. The Film Experience started this kind of analysis ten years ago when The Aviator had some really dumb exclusions and inclusions but lots of other sites now cover the injustice. We never get credit for starting this line of Norma Rae righteous anger but, that said, at least a lot of people have it now.

Did SAG think her face looked like she'd licked a homelessman's ass?

If you aren't familiar SAG uses a system whereby only actors with solitary title cards are official nominees for the Cast category. This means if you are famous in a bit part and have a good agent you are more likely to be an official nominee than the unknown who delivered a better performance in possibly a »

‘The Imitation Game’ Interview with Writer Graham Moore & Director Morten Tyldum

9 December 2014 3:48 PM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

The incredible story of genius Alan Turing finally comes to public light with The Imitation Game, a revelatory representation of an essential chapter in World War II that was lost for horrific reasons. Benedict Cumberbatch leads the film as Turing with a fine performance, and stars opposite Keira Knightley playing a female companion of Turing, alongside talents like Matthew Goode and Mark Strong. The film is adapted from the Andrew Hodges book “Alan Turing: The Enigma” by Graham Moore, and directed by Morten Tyldum.

Moore is a debut screenwriter with Chicago roots, and received acclaim for his novel “The Sherlockian,” released in 2010. He is lined up next to adapt Erik Larson’s “Devil in the White City” into the highly-anticipated vehicle for Leonardo DiCaprio.

Tyldum is a Norwegian director on the rise, who caught the attention of viewers with his bonkers adaptation of Jo Nesbø’s Headhunters, starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Aksel Hennie. »

Box Office Democracy: The Imitation Game

9 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Benedict Cumberbatch month rolls on here at Box Office Democracy. Last week we had his turn as an obnoxious egotistical wolf and next week we’ll have him as the voice of a megalomaniacal dragon but this week we get to see him act with his whole body in The Imitation Game. Finally we get a big screen look at the face that launched a thousand tumblrs. I don’t know if it’s overexposure or the breaking of some kind of spell but I fear I’m turning on Cumberbatch and at just the worst point in his career, certainly as far as the fine people at Marvel are concerned.

I’m sure Alan Turing was a fascinating person but I sincerely hope the people who knew and loved him would say more about his character than, “probably two parts BBC’s Sherlock and one part Sheldon Cooper” but »

'The Imitation Game' Photos: Benedict Cumberbatch Not So Serious

9 December 2014 7:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"The Imitation Game" is a pretty serious movie about a pretty serious topic: decrypting Nazi codes during World War II. A biopic about British mathematician Alan Turing (played by Benedict Cumberbatch), the film takes a close look at his recruitment, his work, his closeted homosexuality, and his untimely death.

But in these exclusive stills from the movie (supplied by Elevation Pictures), we can see that there was some fun going on behind the scenes. Check out the pictures below.

* Watch our interview with Allen Leech and Matthew Goode

"The Imitation Game" opens in Toronto theatres on December 12. It opens in Montreal and Vancouver on December 19. It'll open in the rest of Canada on December 25. It is already playing in the U.S.

Matthew Goode and Allen Leech Talk The Imitation Game, Balancing Fact and Fiction, Alan Turing, and More

7 December 2014 7:44 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Morten Tyldum’s The Imitation Game stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing, a brilliant cryptanalyst whose expertise cracked Germany’s “Enigma code” and helped turn the tide of World War II for the Allies, but his homosexuality still made him a target of persecution.  The film is really more about Turing than the war, but Tyldum weaves the Enigma plot throughout the film in a way that makes it feel like a spy thriller. During my exclusive video interview with stars Matthew Goode and Allen Leech, they talked about balancing fact versus fiction in the movie, what it's like being part of such an important and special film, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.  The Imitation Game is currently in theaters and also stars Keira KnightleyMatthew GoodeCharles DanceMark StrongRory KinnearAllen Leech, and Matthew Beard.  For more on the film, watch six clips, the trailer, »
