The Imitation Game review round-up: Cumberbatch tipped for awards glory
3 hours ago
Benedict Cumberbatch stars in the historical drama as pioneering mathematician and scientist Alan Turing, whose code-breaking work at Bletchley Park proved vital for the Allies in World War II.
Digital Spy rounds up the critical reactions to Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley's highly-anticipated film.
Todd McCarthy - The Hollywood Reporter
"Benedict Cumberbatch is cornering the market on playing exceptionally brilliant problem solvers, first on television with his dazzling portrayal of a modern Sherlock Holmes and now on the big screen in a superb performance as Alan Turing, who cracked the Enigma code and helped win World War II.
"Engrossing, nicely textured and sadly tragic, The Imitation Game is overly reluctant to dive into the nitty gritty of how the man who's often called the father of artificial intelligence accomplished what he did, »
10 best baseball movies of all time: League of Their Own, Moneyball
9 hours ago
A great sports movie should also appeal to those who have no particular interest in sports. Accordingly, some of the best baseball movies could just as easily slot into other genres – they're comedies like The Bad News Bears, historical dramas like Eight Men Out, weepies, biopics, coming-of-age dramas and everything in between.
With this week's release of based-on-a-true-story feel-good drama Million Dollar Arm, Digital Spy takes a look at the ten best baseball movies.
1. Eight Men Out (1988)
John Sayles' 1988 drama tackles Major League Baseball's Black Sox scandal, in which eight underpaid members of the Chicago White Sox (including 'Shoeless' Joe Jackson) conspired with gamblers to intentionally lose the 1919 World Series. Sayles' terrific script perfectly captures the time and place and does a superb job of dramatising several elements of a complex story, with impressive attention to detail.
Very much an ensemble piece, the eclectic cast includes John Cusack (as »

He said: "Certainly you can't go on the internet without that question coming up. Right now, it's too early for us to talk anything about that.

"It'll get produced from our theatrical unit. That's the next logical step for the project."

29 August 2014 3:32 AM, PDT
He also added that the films' perceived lack of success was relative.
"No, the performance of the films hasn't had any negative effect on the sales of the comics," Brevoort wrote on his Tumblr Formspring.
"And apart from that, all of those films did business - just not as much business as the folks making them might have liked in some cases."

29 August 2014 2:54 AM, PDT
The versions of Anna and Elsa that appear in ABC's television series will be "staying true" to their film counterparts, Del Vecho told TV Guide.

Del Vecho insisted that any Frozen characters who feature on Once will "remain who they are", even as they are adapted for live-action.
"They all have developed personalities, and we don't want [the writers on the show] to create situations that we feel [the characters] wouldn't get into," he said.
"It's really about understanding who the characters are and staying true to that."

If I Stay review: Chloë Grace Moretz can't decide to stay or go
29 August 2014 1:01 AM, PDT
What would you choose: heaven, or heaven on earth? The big decision Mia Hall is faced with during an out-of-body experience is almost academic. Chloë Grace Moretz has an effortless look of anguish that makes this sluggish adaptation of Gayle Forman's best-selling novel a little more watchable than it deserves to be, but with a picture of teenage life seemingly plucked from the pages of Mizz, it really makes little difference whether Mia stays on this mortal coil, or goes.
Forman started out writing for teen magazines and that experience translates into a very glossy picture of youth. Apart from her model looks, Mia is a musical prodigy with achingly hip, easy-going parents (Mireille Enos of The Killing remake plays mum) and a devoted »
