Last night a bunch of Texas filmmakers and lovers raised a glass in honor of home state greats like Annette O’Toole, Stephen Tobolowsky, Henry Thomas and Robin Wright. But the highlight of the evening was when Richard Linklater and some reunited cast members from the 1993 classic celebration of dumb, enviable teenage fun, Dazed and Confused, won their own Hall of Fame Award.
Linklater, who was 31 when he made the movie, told EW that he’d wanted to make the flip side of a John Hughes movie. “The drama is so low-key in Dazed. I don’t remember teenage being that dramatic. »

Aptly enough, it took fans watching "Groundhog Day" over and over to transform the film from a modest hit into a modern-day comedy classic. The film, released 20 years ago this week (on Feb. 12, 1993), was ultimately embraced by various religious groups (Buddhists, Christians, and Jews have all found in "Groundhog Day" a parable for their own spiritual philosophies), academics, and regular folks who just want a chuckle at Bill Murray's painful, repetitive, slowly dawning awareness of how to turn the worst day of his life into the best by learning to do good for others and to appreciate the world he lives in. The film also marked a dramatic turning point in the careers of most of the principals who worked on it, including Murray, co-writer/director Harold Ramis, and co-stars Andie MacDowell and Stephen Tobolowsky. Two decades later, they're still feeling its ripple effects. Here, then, is a list »

Justified, Season 4, Episode 5: “Kin”
Directed by Peter Werner
Airs Tuesdays at 10pm Et on FX
As a preface, can we just…? Along with the outstanding regular cast (and an appearance by underrated ex-regular Natalie Zea), “Kin” finds time for past guests Stephen Tobolowsky, Patton Oswalt, Jim Beaver, Romy Rosemont, Jere Burns, and Raymond J. Barry, adds the great Gerald McRaney, and even carves out a little for Jacob Pitts to actually get some substantial material. It’s taken a while, but finally, another drama series can challenge The Good Wife for the most ludicrously stacked cast on television. (All the Deadwood alum shouldn’t be a surprise given Olyphant’s producer status, but that doesn’t temper the greatness. Too bad John Hawkes will be busy courting Oscars for the foreseeable future.) If “Kin” went and trotted out that cast list and »

The stakes seem much higher in ‘Kin’ and frankly, that’s because seemingly everyone has their particular irons in the fire, both on the side of the law and those not, in finding Drew Thompson. It was fast paced as all get out, and even left room for a cliffhanger, which this season seems to want to deal out in droves. Whereas last week focused primarily on the women of the show, Lindsay and Ellen May, this episode brings us right back into the heart of the thing, the real reason for the season if you will. And there are some scary folks out there hunting Thompson down, and the tangling that Raylan is going to have with these people is going to flat out entertaining.

Four episodes deep into season four of Justified and we finally got what we wanted: Raylan and Boyd in a room together. It wasn't under the best circumstances for either man, but satisfying nontheless. "Kin" moved along the Drew Thompson plot, introduced a ruthless new Dixie mafia character, and made things a whole lot more complicated in the Crowder camp. The show's universe also expanded deep into the hills and in doing so, Raylan's past. More on this week's Justified after the jump. Last week Raylan said goodbye to his flame Lindsey (and his $20,000). This week, still looking worse for wear, he meets his true love Winona at the clinic. They share some nice, brief moments as Raylan feels the baby kick and talks to her belly and all of that mushy stuff. But whatever scent of hope she may have gotten by him actually showing up didn't last long. »

Justified continued its strong fourth season with the help of some of its friends in "Kin."
Whether it was those we knew, a la Agent Barkley and Constable Bob, or fresh faces like Mike O'Malley and Gerald McRaney, the onslaught of guest stars was a welcome treat as the search from Drew Thompson continued.
It wasn't anything Zea did, but rather seeing Raylan being there for Winona and the baby, and then getting a kick out of feeling kicks, couldn't have made me happier.
And then all the happy times stopped... quickly.
With Arlo ready to give up Drew Thompson for a deal that would let him walk, everything went into hyper speed as Raylan had about 24 hours »

I had the pleasure of helping to facilitate a special event at the Siff Uptown Cinema in Seattle this past weekend: a double feature of Groundhog Day (with itself), featuring an intro and Q&A with Stephen Tobolowsky. Since Seattle’s Kuow was the first major public radio station to air The Tobolowsky Files, we really felt at home here [...] »

It’s not all that surprising that Chris Brown and Frank Ocean got into a brawl in L.A. two weekends ago. Partly because, well, Chris Brown. But mostly because the fight reportedly started over a parking spot. In hierarchical Hollywood, where one gets to stow one’s ride is no small matter. Long before he started talking to chairs, Clint Eastwood once rammed his vehicle into a car that had taken his reserved space, then allegedly had to be restrained after threatening to smash its windows with a hammer.The Ocean-Brown throwdown was over a parking space at a Santa Monica Boulevard recording studio, but it’s movie and television studio compounds where spots become most contentious. Their vastness contains many opportunities for a performer to feel slighted. “It’s both ludicrous and completely accurate to say a studio parking spot is a measure of your self-worth,” says Stephen Tobolowsky, »

Greetings from the apocalypse! This week the groundhog is gonna see his shadow, which means six more weeks of nuclear winter. Seriously, though, I'm freezing my sack off one minute; the next I'm outside wearing a T-shirt. Take Your Meds, East Coast God! There's several cool-looking flicks out and about this week, two of which I was present for filming, although neither director rubbed my belly for luck so no guarantees, people.

This week we have a very special "Survivor of Thunderdome" in the form of Jonathan Levine's excellent zombie romance "Warm Bodies," if only because yours truly is actually In the movie as an official card carrying member of the undead. I visited the Montreal set in late 2011 and was lucky enough to get my shamble on as a zombified extra, »

Some very familiar faces, whom you might not realize are Texas natives, are among this year's Texas Film Hall of Fame Awards recipients. In addition, a quintessential Austin film will be honored that evening: Dazed and Confused. At a press conference this morning, Austin Film Society Associate Artistic Director Holly Herrick announced the honorees: Stephen Tobolowsky, Robin Wright, Henry Thomas and Annette O'Toole. In addition, actress Julie Hagerty will attend the event to present Tobolowsky's award.
Parker Posey will also be there, to accept the Star of Texas Award for Dazed and Confused. "And I think we may have the director there as well. We'll see," joked Herrick. Richard Linklater, who directed the film and co-founded Afs, was sitting in the front row of the press conference at the time.
Linklater attended the conference to talk about where the funds raised by Texas Film Hall of Fame event go: the »
