The underrated film acting performances of 2014

22 December 2014 11:30 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Gone Girl and Interstellar to The Babadook and RoboCop, some of 2014's more underrated acting performances...

For once, this upcoming awards season looks set to recognise some of the bright young things in movies, rather than the usual suspects, even if the type of movie that's considered “worthy” remain the same.

Biopics loom large, with Benedict Cumberbatch, Felicity Jones, Eddie Redmayne and David Oyelowo all considered locks for their first nominations for roles in films such as The Imitation Game, The Theory Of Everything and Selma. Plus, from the advance buzz on the true story movie Foxcatcher, it seems like we're going to have to get used to the phrase “Academy Award Nominee Channing Tatum” pretty soon.

Even the old guard potentials are pleasingly off-beat, with Michael Keaton tipped for his first nomination, for playing a former superhero actor in Birdman and Patricia Arquette almost a dead cert to »

Why Matthew Warchus Returned to Film After 15 Years for Surprise Globe Nominee 'Pride'

11 December 2014 9:58 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

This crowdpleasing winner of the Queer Palm at Cannes--where it closed the Directors' Fortnight--centers on the true UK story of a group of eager, streetwise, Lgbt youngsters who in 1984 rallied to support the underserved National Union of Mineworkers, taking their little-campaign-that-could (Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners) from the grassroots level in a small Welsh village to national fame. Warchus' first film in 15 years after 1998's commercially unsuccessful "Simpatico" boasts an impressive glut of rising stars including Joseph Gilgun, Jessie Cave, Freddie Fox, Liz White, Andrew Scott, Russell Tovey and, of course, adorable 22-year-old George MacKay who plays young Joe, the film's in-the-closet, fish-out-of-water hero who lives outside London and is a stranger in this strange land of the city. Across-the-pond regulars include Bill Nighy, Paddy Considine, Imelda Staunton, and a scene-stealing Dominic West as a tortured but life-loving artist living with »

What to Watch: Tonight's TV Picks - Bake Off, Our Zoo, Silicon Valley

3 September 2014 7:22 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Great British Bake Off: BBC One, 8pm

Following the national meltdown (sorry) over the Baked Alaska 'bingate' drama last week, Bake Off returns without Iain, or Diana, who dropped out of filming for health reasons.

Emotions are running understandably high as the remaining bakers prepare a selection of pies and tarts, and try their hardest to avoid Mary Berry's least favourite feature: a soggy bottom.

Our Zoo: BBC One, 9pm

Straight after Bake Off comes a heart-warming new period drama on BBC One, which tells the story of the family who founded Chester Zoo.

Appalled at the treatment of the animals at a local circus, ex-soldier George Mottershead (Lee Ingleby) relocates a monkey and a parrot to his parents back yard - much to their distaste. Liz White, Ralf Little, Anne Reid, Sophia Myles and Stephen Campbell Moore (pictured) also star.

From There To Here episode 3 review

5 June 2014 11:01 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From There To Here reaches a dramatic climax this week, tying up all its loose threads into a tidy bow


This review contains spoilers.

“Families have stories, that’s what keeps them together,” says Samuel Cotton (Bernard Hill should be given British national treasure status) midway through tonight’s final trip to Manchester, this time on the dawn of a new millennium. Peter Bowker’s flawed but overall tender family rigmarole concluded with a fitting final chapter. From There to Here has always been about family right from the beginning and here it reached a peak with the Cottons, secrets spilling out of every aperture.

Continuing directly on from last week’s midpoint, From There to Here picked up with Daniel awakening in his hospital bed to the unity of both his lives – wealthy confectioner Daniel and industrial cleaner Daniel. Claire glowered at him, Joanne was a mixture of confusion, »

From Here To There episode 2 review

28 May 2014 11:54 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From There To Here remains so-so in its second episode. Here's Patrick's review...


This review contains spoilers.

After an uneasy start, the BBC’s latest drama output, From There To Here manages to find its feet early on in this second episode. Starting off more or less where the first finished, From There To Here surreptitiously sidesteps explaining how Daniel survived the explosion in his brother, Robbo’s nightclub (this reviewer was surprised not to find, in Sherlock fashion, a series of humorous, alternative accounts of how Daniel pulled through) and put more focus on Daniel’s double life.

With both Claire and Joanne in the dark about the other (leading to a funny scene in which the pair unwittingly share a lift), Daniel must dash between each woman whilst maintaining his busy work cover story. Each life has something important and director James Strong (doing fine work behind »

Entertainment Weekly is hiring writers! as long as those writers don’t want to get paid

27 March 2014 12:03 PM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

This sort of shit makes me physically ill. From Digiday:

Time Inc.’s Entertainment Weekly is the latest publisher to take a platform turn, joining fellow Time Inc. property People and Forbes in following the Huffington Post path of opening up to outside contributors. For EW, that means a contributor network, The Community, to expand its coverage of TV and eventually other areas its staff reporters don’t cover deeply. The idea is familiar: enlist passionate experts to expand coverage — and generate audience at a low cost.

EW will be keeping costs low in the same way that Forbes and HuffPOS do: by not paying those writers. Because why on Earth should a multibillion-dollar global corporation like Time Inc. have to pay its employees? That’s an unnecessary burden on a business.

If you haven’t thrown up yet, this might make you:

“The expansion here hopefully allows us to »

Greatest TV Pilots: Life on Mars

3 March 2014 7:01 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Life on Mars, “Episode 1”

Written by Matthew Graham

Directed by Bharat Nalluri

Originally aired January 9, 2006 on BBC One

“I had an accident and I woke up 33 years in the past. Now that either makes me a time traveler or a lunatic or I’m lying in a hospital bed in 2006 and none of this is real.”

Nothing about Life on Mars should have worked. Its premise sounded ridiculous- an English cop gets hit by a car and ends up in the 1970s trying to figure out if he’s crazy or if he really did travel through time. But with “Episode 1”, its pilot, the series hit the ground running, with immediate well-defined characters, an enthralling plot, witty dialogue, and an intriguing mix of sci-fi and character study.

“Episode 1” starts in 2006 and finds detective Sam Tyler (John Simm) hunting for a serial killer. After his girlfriend, a fellow cop, is kidnapped, »
