Screen Actors Guild Awards recognize ‘Birdman’, ‘Boyhood’, ‘Modern Family’

The 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations were revealed Wednesday morning, serving as yet another precursor on the long road to the Oscars.

In the film categories, Birdman was the big winner, scoring four nominations, including for Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone, as well as the collective ensemble cast. Boyhood followed right in its footsteps with three nods for Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and another ensemble nomination.

The big surprises of the morning’s nominations started with Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler, a bubble contender in a crowded Best Actor race, Jennifer Aniston for Cake, a bubble contender in a disappointingly less crowded Best Actress race, Robert Duvall in the poorly reviewed The Judge and Naomi Watts for St. Vincent (Watts was in Birdman as well, but that must’ve slipped SAG’s minds).

SAG Nominations and Announcement of A New Feature

As some of you may know, I'm a bit of a jack(ass) of all trades. I follow the film industry for Lr, and critique films. But I'm also an actor, I front a rock band, I'm a DJ, film editor, and director as well. Basically, when it comes to entertainment, there's nothing I don't do.

Movie Review – The Hooligan Factory (2014)

The Hooligan Factory, 2014

Directed by Nick Nevern

Starring Jason Maza, Nick Nevern, Tom Burke, Ray Fearon, Steven O’Donnell, Morgan Watkins, Josef Altin, Ronnie Fox, Leo Gregory, Keith-Lee Castle and Lorraine Stanley

Synopsis:

Dex, Danny and The Hooligan Factory travel the length of the country on a mission to re-establish their firm’s glory days. However, the police are closing in and we get a sense that the Hooligan Factory’s best days may be behind them, but with Danny on their side, and Dex finding his old form who knows where this may lead. After all… Its a funny old game.

Any screenwriting lecturer will tell you that if you want to break into the UK film market, pen yourself a script about football hooliganism. The reason for this is because there is a huge demand for it, they’re cheap to make and, like zombie movies, they can

“Game of Thrones” 4.09: Castle Blackwater

Much like in Season 2, Game of Thrones staged a massive standalone battle in its penultimate episode. It was bloody, brutal, and a heck of a lot of fun. Let’s dig in!

Nice touch – for what might be the first time ever, the opening titles only list the people that Actually appear in this episode, making for the shortest cast list ever. Take the night off, Dinklage!

Jon (Kit Harington) and Sam (John Bradley) are on night shift at the Night’s Watch. Sam wants to know what it’s like to go to the bone zone, but Jon remains coy. Sam also points out that their vows don’t actually explicitly prohibit a lot of things. (Like butt stuff?) Jon finally opens up a little: “For a little while, you’re more than just you.” Ugh. Emo has finally made it to Westeros.

Jon sends Sam to get some sleep,

Game Of Thrones season 4 episode 9 review: The Watchers On The Wall

The best-looking Game Of Thrones installment yet? Ron digs into season four episode nine, The Watchers On The Wall...

Review

This review contains spoilers.

4.9 The Watchers On The Wall

There are some episodes of Game Of Thrones that are showcases for the writing prowess of Dan Benioff and Db Weiss (and a whole bunch of other great television writers), there are episodes that are dedicated to the prowess of brilliant actors like Peter Dinklage, and then there are episodes of Game Of Thrones that are nothing but spectacle.

Given the importance of the ninth episode of each season, it's not surprising that The Watchers On The Wall is less a plot advancing episode and more of a pure spectacle courtesy of one of the masters of the modern action sequence.

That would be Neil Marshall, who turned a cult classic film (Dog Soldiers) into a brilliant turn in the director's

Interview: A conversation with Jonathan Sothcott, producer of Vendetta

Nafissa Jeetoo chats with Award-winning British producer & CEO of Richwater Films, Jonathan Sothcott, about his recent release Vendetta and what we can expect in 2014...

Nafissa Jeetoo: Hi Jonathan, I’d like to start by thanking you for taking the time to answer the questions I have in store. And... *applause* well done with Vendetta, a successfully gripping action movie where revenge is best served... Erm...Bloody!! So... who came up with the idea of Vendetta, and why did you make it happen? Be honest... even if this masterpiece stemmed from drunken banter!

Jonathan Sothcott: I had been working with a writer/director called Stephen Reynolds. He sent me a short film called Snowman a couple of years back, which he had ambitions to turn into a feature. It was stylish and I loved the concept, but it was more comic book than Death Wish. But it made enough of
