Of all the Austin red carpets and gala events I've been fortunate enough to attend in the past few years, my favorites have been at the annual Texas Film Hall of Fame. The red carpet is actually the entrance to the event, so I not only get to take photos of the honorees, but anyone I recognize who walks in, and sometimes people I don't recognize but who look fabulous, or whom everyone else is photographing. (Then I find out later who they are.) It's a long red carpet with enough room for just about everyone, the lighting is pretty good, and most of the familiar faces are willing to stop and be photographed.
Austin Film Society has just announced three inductees into the Texas Film Hall of Fame for 2010: Quentin Tarantino, Michael Nesmith and Bruce McGill. In addition, actor Thomas Haden Church will again emcee the event -- »

2009 is about to end with a bang, though probably not the apocalyptic kind predicted in the long-awaited adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" or Chris Smith's terrifying doc "Collapse," though those will both be playing at your local arthouse. Instead, audiences will be able to enjoy a winter of wildly different indie film offerings to reflect the wildly different tastes of moviegoers as we leave one decade and move into another. (There are also many different ways to watch them, as you can tell from our Anywhere But a Movie Theater section.)
From November through January, there will be musicals ("Nine"), comedies (Broken Lizard's "The Slammin' Salmon") and stop-motion animated wonderments ("A Town Called Panic") to entertain and new films from Michael Haneke, Pedro Almodóvar, Richard Linklater, Terry Gilliam and Werner Herzog to ponder. And if new movies aren't necessarily doing the trick, you can always cozy »

Well this is nice. I’ve been wondering whatever happened to Sasha Alexander after she had a temporary case of brain farts and decided to leave the hit CBS show “NCIS” just as it was becoming a gargantuan hit. You know, “NCIS”? That “CSI” show set in the military? After doing a mostly forgettable stint in the movies, Alexander is returning to the small screen as Angie Harmon’s partner in TNT’s new female-centric cop show “Rizzoli”. She will play Maura Isles, the Boston medical examiner who usually teams up with Harmon’s Rizzoli to solve crimes. Besides Alexander, three other names have been added to the cast: Bruce McGill, Jordan Bridges and Lee Thompson Young. McGill will play Detective Vince Korsak, Rizzoli’s former partner, who takes it personally when Rizzoli takes on a new partner in the very green Barry Frost (Young). Bridges, meanwhile, will play Franke Rizzoli Jr. »
Written by Janet Tamaro, "Rizzoli" revolves around the crime-solving team of Boston police detective Rizzoli (Harmon) and medical examiner Maura Isles (Alexander).
Veteran actor McGill will play the gruff but lovable Detective Vince Korsak, Jane's former partner who is a bit hurt that she had taken the likable but green Barry Frost (Young), as her new partner.
Bridges ("Bionic Woman") will play Franke Rizzoli Jr., Jane's younger brother, a Boston patrol officer who worships her and hopes to make detective someday.
McGill, onscreen in "Law Abiding Citizen," is repped by Stone Manners.
Bridges, who recently was cast in the feature "Five Hours South, »

Written by Kurt Wimmer and directed by F. Gary Gray, Law Abiding Citizen stars Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx as two men on the opposite sides of law. It’s just unclear who’s actually on the right side: the district attorney (Foxx) who agreed on a plea bargain that set murderers loose, or the man (Butler) who wants to take revenge against the D.A. for allowing his family’s killers to roam free. Also in the cast: Colm Meaney, Bruce McGill, Leslie Ibb, Michael Irby. Law Abiding Citizen opened in the Us this past Friday. Photos: John Baer / © 2009 Lac Films LLC. All rights reserved.

Overture Films' new psychological, thriller, movie "Law Abiding Citizen" brought a lot of mystery and suspense,as it debuted nationwide,this weekend. It starred : Jamie Foxx, Gerard Butler, Bruce McGill, Colm Meaney, Leslie Bibb, Michael Irby, Regina Hall, and Viola Davis. I thought the movie was excellent,and that Jamie Foxx and Gerard Butler, both did an excellent job in this movie. "Law Abiding Citizen" focused around the two main characters, Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx) and Clyde Shelton (Gerard Butler). Clyde's family gets slaughtered by a guy named Clarence Darby and his accomplice. Clarence strikes a deal to walk free,by ratting out his accomplice. Then the movie fast forwards ten years into the future. Clyde gruesomely takes out Clarence,and gets thrown in prison for it,but then something mysterious happens. Clyde is able to somehow commit more murders without leaving his prison cell,or so it would seem. »
Where The Wild Things Are Studio: Warner Bros. Rated: PG for mild thematic elements, some adventure action and brief language. Starring: Catherine Keener, Max Records, Mark Ruffalo, Lauren Ambrose and James Gandolfini Directed by: Spike Jonze What it’s about: This adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s classic picture book tells the story of young Max (Max Records), who is constantly getting in trouble at home. One night after being punished, he runs away to a magical land where he meets a tribe of Wild Things and becomes their king. What I liked: I loved this book as a child, and I was thrilled to see that this has been given a faithful and inspired adaptation. Bringing a picture book to life on screen is different from adapting a novel because instead of trimming things down, the screenwriter must embellish on the original story. Spike Jonze does a brilliant job hitting all the major points of the book »

Chicago – Justice is the theme of “Law Abiding Citizen,” a new film starring Jamie Foxx as a district attorney in Philadelphia who is targeted for revenge by a former client (Gerald Butler). Directing the film is veteran F. Gary Gray (”Friday,” “The Italian Job”).
Taking a page from Hannibal Lechter, Gerald Butler portrays Clyde, an self-proclaimed “law abiding citizen” who feels that the crime committed against his family was not satisfactorily punished. Using his superior technical intelligence, Clyde stays one step ahead of ambitious attorney Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx), as he conducts his style of revenge.

Have you ever felt slighted by the law? Felt like justice wasn’t served, or that the law was working more in their own favor than in yours? This is the underlying theme, the philosophical question at hand, which runs throughout Law Abiding Citizen. This is a movie whose title I felt was lacking, until I saw the film and it made more sense.
Law Abiding Citizen is a smart, tense thriller that keeps the audience at the edge of their seats and keeps us guessing. Not since Fracture, starring Anthony Hopkins, have I felt this engrossed by a legal cat-and-mouse thriller. The story makes it difficult to fully take one side or the other, painting the ambiguous nature of our imperfect legal system in endless shades of gray.
Photo: Overture Films "Some justice is better than no justice at all," says Jamie Foxx playing Nick Price, a Philadelphia prosecutor in charge of bringing justice to the two men that killed Clyde Shelton's (Gerard Butler) wife and young daughter in Law Abiding Citizen. It's a statement that speaks to the cracks in the American justice system and as a result Clyde is going to see to it these cracks are turned into canyons once he learns only one of the men will be sentenced to death while the other serves a meager three-year sentence. This is something Clyde simply can't tolerate.
Law Abiding Citizen is madness, mayhem and carnage all wrapped up into one big dumb actioner filled with plot and logic holes galore. Fortunately, it's too much fun along the way to even concern yourself with the hows and the whys of it all. »

Remember Charles Bronson in Death Wish? Law Abiding Citizen offers a taste of no-mercy vigilante family-man justice 3.0. Ten years after his wife and daughter were slaughtered in front of him, Clyde Shelton (Gerard Butler) kidnaps one of the perpetrators, straps him down to a torture table, and saws off his limbs (and other things). Then he sends a video of the atrocity to Nick Rice (Jamie Foxx), the slick, out-for-himself Philadelphia prosecutor who cut too soft a deal with the killer…read more [EW]
When “Law Abiding Citizen” feels comfortable enough to be a blunt object of suspense, it comes together splendidly. Pitting the harsh realities of the modern justice system against the suburban cry for blood from a soccer dad, Kurt Wimmer’s screenplay nurtures a pungent odor of injustice that sets up the plot in an exhilarating manner. Morally frozen lawyers? Tired, careless judges? Wimmer manipulates audience reaction superbly, »

Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx hit the red carpet to premiere their new movie Law Abiding Citizen in La last night. Gerard posed solo and stopped to sign autographs for waiting fans, while Jamie and costar Regina Hall snuggled up for photographers. Although the two men play adversaries on screen, Gerard and Jamie looked quite buddy-buddy as they joked and laughed their way to the afterparty. Gerard joked about his butt-baring scenes in the movie which could help attract a more co-ed audience to check the psychological thriller.
