Best Actress Besties Brie Larson and Saoirse Ronan Honored in Santa Barbara

8 February 2016 11:39 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Santa Barbara, Calif. — The Santa Barbara International Film Festival displayed the proper foresight in late November last year when selecting “Room” star Brie Larson and “Brooklyn’s” Saoirse Ronan as first-time tandem recipients of the Outstanding Performer of the Year Award: Both have remained out in front of the best actress Oscar race in a year marked by a number of female-centric narratives, and they continue to lock horns heading into the Feb. 28 Academy Awards ceremony.

Of course, nothing approaching competitive awareness was on display Monday night as the two ingenues — who have been previously recognized by Sbiff in the Virtuosos sidebar — enjoyed their dual tributes. In fact, they’ve become quite close on the circuit.

Alas, circumstances kept them apart this time — the production of “Kong: Skull Island,” to be specific. The blockbuster sequel has filled Larson’s schedule all season as she has bounced from locations in Vietnam, »

1 February 2016 10:32 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

February may be the shortest month of the year, but the major streaming sites certainly haven't used that as an excuse to slack off. Perhaps motivated by the imminent Leap Day, Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime are unleashing an absolute blizzard of new titles over the next four weeks — from a martial-arts sequel 16 years in the making, to a note-perfect new comedy series that's arriving just in time to cure (or inflame) those post-Valentine's Day blues. Here are our top 10 picks for what to watch in the next 29 days.

RSVP to the (Free) Saoirse Ronan Retrospective

22 January 2016 1:42 PM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

One of the freshest talents to emerge out of Hollywood in recent years is Saoirse Ronan. Ronan is only less than a decade into her film career, but her résumé reads like a who’s who list of Hollywood A-list filmmakers and co-stars. Ronan’s career continues to burn bright after receiving a second Academy Award nomination at 21 for “Brooklyn.” Ronan stars as Eilis, a young Irish woman who immigrates to Brooklyn in the 1950s in search of a better future. She almost immediately falls into a romance with a young man named Tony (Emory Cohen). However, Eilis’ past eventually catches up with her and she must return home to Ireland. Torn between two worlds, Ronan beautifully conveys Eilis’ internal conflict and her realization of what “home” actually means to her. “Brooklyn” earned two additional Oscar nominations for picture (producers Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey) and adapted screenplay (writer Nick Hornby »

No Fear: The Year’S Best Movies

9 January 2016 12:46 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

This is definitely the time of year when film critic types (I’m sure you know who I mean) spend an inordinate amount of time leading up to awards season—and it all leads up to awards season, don’t it?—compiling lists and trying to convince anyone who will listen that it was a shitty year at the movies for anyone who liked something other than what they saw and liked. And ‘tis the season, or at least ‘thas (?) been in the recent past, for that most beloved of academic parlor games, bemoaning the death of cinema, which, if the sackcloth-and-ashes-clad among us are to be believed, is an increasingly detached and irrelevant art form in the process of being smothered under the wet, steaming blanket of American blockbuster-it is. And it’s going all malnourished from the siphoning off of all the talent back to TV, which, as everyone knows, »

Cheer on local talent with these potentially great UK films from 2016, including drama, comedy, action, horror, fantasy & more…

While Batman Vs Superman, Captain America: Civil War, X-Men Apocalypse and other mega franchises are expected to dominate cinemas in 2016, let’s hear it for the films below. None are sequels, few have titanic budgets, all of them are British and each of them has the potential to be great.

2016 looks to be a particularly strong year for UK crime drama, with Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire, Adam Smith’s Trespass Against Us and Michael Apted’s Unlocked on their way. Military thrillers are also well represented this year, with Gavin Hood’s Eye In The Sky, Fernando Coimbra’s Sand Castle, and Simon West’s Stratton incoming. There’s also comedy, fantasy, drama, horror and even a musical waiting for you below.
