‘Nightcrawler’ Blu-ray Review

5 hours ago | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jake GyllenhaalRene Russo, Bill Paxton, Michael Papajohn, Marco Rodríguez, James Huang, Kent Shocknek, Pat Harvey, Sharon Tay, Rick Garcia, Leah Fredkin, Jonny Coyne | Written and Directed by Dan Gilroy

First time director Dan Gilroy has started strong with his debut film Nightcrawler.This sadistic character study is darkly twisted in the best ways. It is a manifestation of the alluring but devastating car crash our minds simply cannot turn away from. Nightcrawler tantalizes that part of humanity that is fascinated with carnage and bloodshed. It will allure you with its thrills and fascinate you with its eccentric behavior.

Nightcrawler works best when it is solely focused on the character of Lou Bloom played ever so brilliantly by Jake Gyllenhaal. Bloom is an oddity of a man. Unemployed he makes a living by finding random jobs like selling stolen metal to Los Angles scrapyards. Our first encounter with Lou »

The 'Parks and Recreation' Finale: Too Much Wish-Fulfillment

25 February 2015 9:41 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Spoilers for the "Parks and Recreation" finale, obviously. "Parks and Recreation" has come a long way, starting as a clone of "The Office" and turning into the warmest, funniest political show on television. "Parks" has always been about people with deeply-rooted political and personal differences finding ways to come together; sometimes they won, sometimes they lost, but they were always able to regroup and find new ways to be happy. It's an idealistic show that never fell into the smug sermonizing of Aaron Sorkin's "The West Wing" or "The Newsroom." It was able to balance optimism with a hint of dissatisfaction (like when Leslie Knope was recalled from her city council position), and it made all of the wins feel hard-won. More than anything, it never forgot to stay funny while staying heartfelt. That careful balance tipped way over into the wish-fulfillment side in last night's finale, "One Last Ride, »

Aaron Sorkin -- I'd Love to Write New 'Indiana Jones' ... But

22 February 2015 12:33 AM, PST | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

If Steven Spielberg wants Chris Pratt to play a version of "Indiana Jones" who can talk someone's ear off in the rumored new movie ... then one legendary writer says he'd love to help. Aaron Sorkin was heading out of the Montage Saturday night in Bev Hills when he told our photog he's always wanted to write an action flick ... so if Spielberg and co. came knocking, he'd be down. There's a fear though. Check out »

‘Silicon Valley’ Season 2 Teaser Is a Drug- and Energy Drink-Fueled Gutbuster (Video)

6 February 2015 5:20 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

HBO’s sleeper startup hit “Silicon Valley” sent up its namesake brilliantly in its first season and, with the release of its Season 2 promo on Friday, it appears due for another round of programmer stereotypes, venture capitalist clowning and tech sector in-jokes. In the teaser, the group of developers comprising tech startup Pied Piper, led by skittish coding prodigy Richard Hendriks (Thomas Middleditch), plugs in and pounds down energy drinks, snack foods and bowls of Froot Loops in an effort to maintain consciousness during programming tedium.

Amy Pascal: A Cautionary Tale in an Age Without Privacy

5 February 2015 3:40 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From the moment a series of racially insensitive jokes about President Barack Obama and her controversial back-and-forth leaked emails about A-list actors and talent became public, Amy Pascal was widely perceived as a dead executive walking.

Fairly or not, the Sony Pictures studio chief has become a corporate cautionary tale for the digital age. On Thursday, it was announced that Pascal was exiting her perch of more than a decade as gracefully as could be expected, landing a production deal at Sony with the promise of a four-year commitment to back a mixture of critically and commercially oriented projects.

But in her new role, Pascal still has some fence mending ahead of her.

“Her relationships and her effectiveness in dealing with talent had been compromised,” said Hal Vogel, a media analyst. “It’s a healthy move for her and the studio. It’s the kind of thing that requires a »

Marcia Gay Harden on ‘Htgawm’: ‘Arguing Is in My Blood’

5 February 2015 6:55 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Annalise Keating’s (Violas Davis) world in ABC’s hit series, How to Get Away With Murder, just got a lot more complicated with the arrival of Hannah Keating, her late husband’s sister played by Marcia Gay Harden.

Their 20-year history is complicated, to say the least. “They’ve never gotten along, they’ve always butted heads,” Harden tells ETonline. “It’s about -- for Hannah, I should say -- Annalise's initial breaking of the moral code, breaking up a marriage.”

Recap: Omg ! The Jaw-Dropping Moments from Tgit

The Oscar-winning actress, who was only seen briefly at the end of the winter premiere, made a clear impression on fans. As one of TV’s go-to actors for guest arcs, Harden knows how to make the most of her screen time -- even opposite Davis, fellow Oscar winner and recent Golden Globe honoree.

In fact, Harden promises that the impending showdown between Hannah and Annalise will be »

Steve Jobs Biopic is Coming Fast as Universal Sets October Release

Michael Fassbender Is Steve Jobs, And Here's A Picture To Prove It

3 February 2015 7:57 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The first photo of Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs has arrived, and you were right, the actor looks nothing like the Apple genius. But that's okay, because Fassbender is a talented actor, and he doesn't have to look like Jobs to remind us of Jobs.

Directed by Danny Boyle, the untitled project is being filmed in San Francisco. Seth Rogen and Kate Winslet co-star. The film has had a rocky beginning, going through different directors and actors. The film even went from Sony to Universal.

Aaron Sorkin has spoken openly about the film, and revealed the structure of his script early on. The film will take consist of three 30 minute scenes played out in real time. Each will detail a launch of a major Apple product: the Macintosh in 1984, NeXT in 1988, and the iPod in 2001.

Already I have noticed that people aren't happy about this casting choice, and everyone is basing this solely on looks. »

First Look At Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs

3 February 2015 5:43 PM, PST | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Danny Boyle's biopic Steve Jobs is currently in the middle of shooting, and the Daily Mail (via Splash News) has the first images from the set of Michael Fassbender and co-star Seth Rogen, as Jobs and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. Working from a script by Aaron Sorkin, Boyle's biopic takes an interesting approach that is very different from the usual biopic, telling the story of Jobs life by focussing on three key moments. Couple this with Boyle's track record and a great cast, which also includes Kate Winslet and Jeff Daniels, Steve Jobs is a intriguing prospect indeed. Steve Jobs is set for release in 2016. »
