The Top Father's Day Films Ever Made? Here Are Five Dads - Ranging from the Intellectual to the Pathological

22 June 2015 4:02 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Father of the Bride': Steve Martin and Kimberly Williams. Top Five Father's Day Movies? From giant Gregory Peck to tyrant John Gielgud What would be the Top Five Father's Day movies ever made? Well, there have been countless films about fathers and/or featuring fathers of various sizes, shapes, and inclinations. In terms of quality, these range from the amusing – e.g., the 1950 version of Cheaper by the Dozen; the Oscar-nominated The Grandfather – to the nauseating – e.g., the 1950 version of Father of the Bride; its atrocious sequel, Father's Little Dividend. Although I'm unable to come up with the absolute Top Five Father's Day Movies – or rather, just plain Father Movies – ever made, below are the first five (actually six, including a remake) "quality" patriarch-centered films that come to mind. Now, the fathers portrayed in these films aren't all heroic, loving, and/or saintly paternal figures. Several are »

Here's the Full List of Critics' Choice TV Awards Winners

1 June 2015 6:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It should come as no surprise that critically-acclaimed series such as "The Americans" and "Silicon Valley" took home top prizes at the fifth annual Critics' Choice TV Awards on Sunday night (it's right there in the name of the event, after all). But there was plenty of love for popular shows, too, proving that quality programming is becoming more widely available and amenable to audiences during this so-called golden age of television.

"The Americans" and "Silicon Valley" each claimed high honors in the best drama and comedy series categories, respectively, and their home networks were the biggest winners of the night: HBO snagged seven statuettes, while FX collected four. "Silicon Valley" was among the shows that won multiple awards, with T.J. Miller taking home the trophy for best supporting actor in a comedy.

Freshman series "Better Call Saul" and "Transparent" also walked away with two trophies apiece, while new sensation »

Critics’ Choice Awards Winners: Full List

31 May 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The 5th annual Critics’ Choice TV Awards took place Sunday at the Beverly Hilton hotel and aired live on A&E. “So You Think You Can Dance” host Cat Deeley emceed the proceedings — and also found time to accept the prize for best reality host midway through the show. Despite playfully jabbing rival host Tom Bergeron during her intro by joking she’d purposefully gotten him relegated to one of the back tables in the ballroom, she was spotted warmly embracing the “Dancing with the Stars” mainstay during the ad break.

The first prize of the night went to “Better Call Saul’s” Jonathan Banks for best supporting actor in a drama, and the thesp also had the dubious honor of earning the ceremony’s first (but far from the last) bleep during his acceptance speech. The “Breaking Bad” spinoff later won a second award for Bob Odenkirk’s lead »

Top 5: San Andreas, Rick Baker Retiring, Point Break Remake Trailer

30 May 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Streaming now on Netflix is Christopher McQuarrie's action/thriller Jack Reacher, adapted from the Lee Child novel One Shot. This one had been sitting in my queue for some time and it finally got the call up this past week when Adam kindly gave notice that it would be leaving Netflix on June 30th. Released by Paramount in 2012 as the first movie adaptation of Child's popular book series, Reacher garnered modest box office returns domestically but played well enough abroad for the studio to move forward with a sequel, possibly with Oscar winner Edward Zwick at the helm. I consider this to be good news because Jack Reacher is actually pretty damn solid. Starring Tom Cruise as the titular character, McQuarrie's film assembles a fantastic cast around him that includes Rosamund Pike, David Oyelowo, Richard Jenkins, Robert Duvall, and Werner Herzog in an excellent turn as the villain known »

First poster for Western horror Bone Tomahawk

10 May 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Hateful Eight isn’t the only Kurt Russell Western on the horizon, as the Tombstone star is also set for a return to the genre – albeit with a horror twist – in first-time director S. Craig Zahler’s Bone Tomahawk, and you can check out the first poster here…

After an outlaw unknowingly leads a band of cannibalistic Troglodytes into the peaceful western town of Bright Hope, the monsters kidnap several settlers, including the wife of a local rancher. Despite his injured leg the rancher joins a small rescue party with the sheriff, his aging deputy and a strong-willed gunslinger. What follows is a journey into hell on earth as the posse comes to realise it is up against a foe whose savagery knows no bounds. The film takes place in the mid 1800’s around the border of what is now Texas and New Mexico.

Posters for 'London Has Fallen' and 'Bone Tomahawk' Couldn't be More Different

8 May 2015 10:50 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I wouldn't typically choose to put these two posters in the same post, but they arrived at the same time and, well, I guess I'm lazy. Either way, just below are the posters for the Olympus Has Fallen sequel London Has Fallen as well as the Kurt Russell-led Western Bone Tomahawk and they are about as far apart from one another in effort and quality as could possibly be. First for London Has Fallen, a sequel to the Antoine Fuqua film Olympus Has Fallen that once again find Gerard Butler playing a Secret Service agent only this time he's across the pond when trouble arises. After the British Prime Minister passes away, his funeral becomes a target of a terrorist organization to destroy some of the world's most powerful leaders, devastate the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. The only hope of stopping it rests »

8 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Russell is currently starring with Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, Jena Malone, James Ransone, and Richard Jenkins in Craig Zahler's dark western Bone Tomahawk. Here's the synopsis:After an outlaw unknowingly leads a band of cannibalistic Troglodytes into the peaceful western town of Bright Hope, the monsters kidnap several settlers, including the wife of a local rancher.

Check Out The Great Poster For 'Bone Tomahawk' Starring Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, And Richard Jenkins

8 May 2015 9:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“...if you’re a child of the 80s, your Westerns are 'Silverado' and 'Tombstone,'” "Bone Tomahawk" co-star Patrick Wilson told EW. “To do a movie with Kurt [Russell] is one thing — to do a Western with Kurt is like, ‘Alright! I’m going to be next to Wyatt Earp up there on a horse!’” And the actor's excitement certainly matches ours. With the cast being rounded out by Matthew Fox, Richard Jenkins, Lili Simmons, David Arquette, Fred Melamed, and Sean Young (!) this horror-western (!!) boasts an intriguing premise: a sheriff teams up both with a cowboy and a bumbling old man (Jenkins) to rescue a group of captives from a bunch of cannibalistic cave-dwellers. And yet, the one concern is that this film, marking the directorial debut of S. Craig Zahler, still has no distribution, which does make one wonder about the finished product.  However, it seems that »

John Gallagher, Jr. on playing the pain and resentment in 'Olive Kitteridge' [Exclusive Video]

7 May 2015 1:21 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"From the surface, it looks like a very simple homespun story about a quintessential American family, but you start diving in deeper and realize there is years of pain and secrets and resentments," reveals actor John Gallagher, Jr. during our recent video chat (watch below) about his role in the HBO limited series "Olive Kitteridge." -Break- Gallagher co-stars as Christopher Kitteridge, the troubled adult son of Olive (Frances McDormand) and Henry (Richard Jenkins). The character grew up in Maine under his demanding and cold mother, now blaming her for many of his problems, including depression and a lack of self-confidence. The audience sees Christopher when he returns home to get married and a few years later when remarried and living a modest life in Brooklyn.

Cruise Performs Laugh-Out-Loud Stunts in MI5 Trailer (with Bonus Teaser)

24 March 2015 5:55 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' star Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' trailer: Movie stunt combo "Desperate times. Desperate measures," says Tom Cruise aka Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation trailer aka the Mission: Impossible 5 and/or MI5 trailer. Whatever you call it, that particular line could be read in a number of ways: Tom Cruise's superstardom is in the doldrums – at least that's what we hear from those who see reality only through U.S.-focused lenses – and he needs all the box-office help he can get. Hence, MI5. Hollywood is in dire need of a mammoth domestic blockbuster following a year of mediocre-performing tentpoles at the U.S. box office. Hence, MI5. The world's socioeconomic fabric is about to unravel. Hence, MI5 – so humankind can go with a bang. Not only with a bang, but with mirth as well. »
