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, »

The 35 Greatest Murder Mystery Movies Ever Made

28 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Murder mysteries are so commonplace on TV that each week offers seemingly dozens of them on police procedural series and detective shows. But in the movies, whodunits are surprisingly rare, and really good ones rarer still. There's really only a handful of movies that excel in offering the viewer the pleasure of solving the crime along with a charismatic sleuth, often with an all-star cast of suspects hamming it up as they try not to appear guilty.

One of the best was "Murder on the Orient Express," released 40 years ago this week, on November 24, 1974. Like many films adapted from Agatha Christie novels, this one featured an eccentric but meticulous investigator (in this case, Albert Finney as Belgian epicure Hercule Poirot), a glamorous and claustrophobic setting (here, the famous luxury train from Istanbul to Paris), and a tricky murder plot with an outrageous solution. The film won an Oscar for passenger »

Shot Glass Half Empty?: On Boardwalk Empire’s Troubled Legacy

1 November 2014 10:33 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

I was a bit hesitant to start watching the series finale for Boardwalk Empire. I didn’t even have it in me to watch it until a few days after it aired. Why was I so hesitant? Probably for a number of reasons. A part of me wasn’t ready to say goodbye to a series I held dear despite the disappointment of its last two seasons. A part of me waited out of fear of watching the show deflate right before my eyes in its final hour. A part of me just didn’t feel it was “must-watch” television anymore; there wasn’t any urgency to watch it. Let’s just say this, I came ready to be underwhelmed. Warning: There are spoilers ahead for those who haven’t finished the show.

I didn’t always have this feeling towards Boardwalk Empire. When the show first premiered, it was »

TV Review: ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Finale Good To the Last Drop (Spoilers)

26 October 2014 10:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Terence Winter has professed his love for “The Sopranos” finale, but the “Boardwalk Empire” creator certainly didn’t choose to emulate his former show’s cryptic conclusion in crafting a fifth season that steadfastly built toward its final, revelatory sequences. And that’s to his and the program’s credit, as the HBO drama methodically detailed the history of its central character, Nucky Thompson, while tying up loose ends (or most of them, anyway) with a ruthless efficiency that would have made Michael Corleone proud.

Sunday’s closing hour (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched) saw Nucky become the embodiment of fellow mobster Johnny Torrio’s rueful admonition that there’s little point to being the richest man in the graveyard. In that, he joined a rather lengthy roster of key players who had bitten the dust in this fast-moving final flight of episodes, to the point where »

Boardwalk Empire's Series Finale: How Did It All End?

26 October 2014 10:15 PM, PDT | TVGuide.com - Features | See recent TVGuide - Features news »

[Warning: The following story contains spoilers from Sunday's series finale of HBO's Boardwalk Empire. Read at your own risk.]

After five beautifully crafted seasons, the lights finally went out on HBO's Boardwalk Empire Sunday night. And as promised by creator and executive producer Terence Winter, who worked with the team that crafted the maddening and still-debated ending of The Sopranos, there was nothing ambiguous about it.

The show arguably reached its emotional climax in the penultimate episode, when Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) agreed to give up his Atlantic City empire to New York rival Charlie Luciano (Vincent Piazza) in order to save his nephew Willie. As such, the finale became a flashback-heavy exploration of Nucky's soul as he tied up loose ends with his brother Eli (Shea Whigam) and made plans to move to New York and live quietly, thanks to the cool $2 million he made manipulating the stock market with his former wife Margaret (Kelly Macdonald). 

The best and worst series finales of all time

Nucky Thompson’s Endearing Moments Make The Boardwalk Empire Finale That Much Harder to Accept

26 October 2014 5:35 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

View Photo Gallery

It’s been a long road for Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) and Boardwalk Empire. And tonight, the gangster life culminates for the shows grand finale, which is sure to go out with many bangs. Nucky is the ultimate anti-hero, whose criminal ways are peppered with moments of grey between good and evil. Nucky treads that line expertly. Sometimes ruthless, sometimes compellingly sweet, Nucky is able to be both a malevolent crime boss and a gentle, endearing husband/father/brother/friend.

While it’s easy to stumble over Nucky’s racketeering of seasons past, moments like when he protected and took in Margaret Schroeder (Kelly MacDonald) and her kids are what make him such a great character and Boardwalk Empire such a dynamic experience. Click through the gallery to relive these moments and mourn the end of a truly awesome show. »

Ewan McGregor: 'Trainspotting sequel might happen'

25 October 2014 11:19 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ewan McGregor has said a Trainspotting sequel is likely to happen.

Based on Irvine Welsh's novel with the same name, McGregor starred in the 1996 Danny Boyle adaptation alongside Jonny Lee Miller, Kevin McKidd, Kelly Macdonald, Robert Carlyle and Ewen Bremner.

McGregor told Details: "It looks like it might happen. The idea is that we shoot it in 2016, which would be 20 years after the original came out. And I'd be up for it. I wouldn't have been 10 years ago, but I am now."

Last year, the Scottish actor expressed his interest in reprising his Trainspotting role as heroin addict Mark Renton and said it would be an "extraordinary experience" to reunite with his former co-stars.

Boyle already confirmed his plans for a Trainspotting sequel, which would be based on Welsh's 2002 follow-up Porno.

The duo worked together for three films but their friendship was severed after the actor was replaced by »

Watch: Say Goodbye To 'Boardwalk Empire' With 30-Minute Doc 'The Final Shot' With Martin Scorsese, Steve Buscemi, More

21 October 2014 6:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Next Sunday, HBO will lower the curtain on "Boardwalk Empire." After five seasons of bootlegging, prostitution, assassination, and power moves from some of the underworld's seediest characters in the Atlantic City of the 1920 and 1930s, the lights will be shut off. So to get you prepared, HBO has unveiled a must watch thirty-minute documentary. The appropriately titled "The Final Shot" brings together executive producer Martin Scorsese, writer Terence Winter, and key cast members (Steve Buscemi, Gretchen Mol, Kelly Macdonald, Michael K. Williams, Stephen Graham and Michael Stuhlbarg) to share their recollections on the genesis of the show, shooting the series, and much more. It's insight from the on-the-ground players who have lived with the show for the past half-decade, and it's fascinating stuff for those who have been following the adventures of Nucky Thompson and co. The series finale of "Boardwalk Empire" airs on October 26th. Watch below. »

Review: 'Boardwalk Empire' - 'Cuanto'

28 September 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Boardwalk Empire" coming up just as soon as my wheat farm goes belly up... "Partners in crime." -Nucky "Cuanto" brings us to the midway point of this shortened final season, and it's easily the liveliest of the four we've gotten so far. The hour deals a lot with partnerships being formed, or rekindled — or, more often than not, with failed reunion attempts — and as such not only deals a lot with the series' history (Van Alden's arrest of Luciano and Jimmy in season 1, Nucky and Margaret's first meeting), but gives us several terrific character combinations in both Atlantic City and Chicago, along with the best of the young Nucky flashbacks to date. As I noted last week, the sum of the Nucky/Margaret pairing has always been greater than the sum of its two parts, and we got a long, potent and entertaining reminder of that here. »
