In addition, the film features a veritable who’s who of stand-up comedians, »

Chicago – Rarely does a filmmaker have a long or influential enough career to revisit a story and characters that they’ve explored in a previous film. Oscar winner Danny Boyle has both qualifications, as he again takes on – 20 years after its 1996 release – his classic film “Trainspotting, which is elegantly titled “T2 Trainspotting.”
The boys of the original “Trainspotting” have reunited for the outing, portrayed by Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle, Ewen Bremner and Jonny Lee Miller. Middle age angst is the theme, as each of the characters are going through some life changes, but the spirit of their larcenous souls are still intact. The first film launched the uber-careers of Ewan McGregor and director Danny Boyle, and the re-exploration of the energetic style and quick-cutting scene work are back in the new story as well.

The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Supporting Actor RaceThe 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Supporting Actor RaceAdriana Floridia2/21/2017 9:07:00 Am
The Best Supporting Actor Oscar is pretty much Mahershala Ali's to lose.
Despite that, this year's line-up of Best Supporting Actor nominees is incredibly strong, and anyone would be a worthy winner. However, Ali has won almost every award leading up to the Oscars, except for the Golden Globe which surprisingly went to Nocturnal Animals' Aaron Taylor Johnson (who wasn't even nominated for the Oscar). Moonlight is a major awards contender that right now looks like it's being outshone by La La Land. If Moonlight is guaranteed an Oscar in any category, it's this one.
We're breaking down the nominees for Best Supporting Actor below!

It finally happened!
This is the moment I've been waiting for all season. (And it's only been four episodes...)
The affair is over. Ms. Grundy packed up her bags and hightailed it out of town on Riverdale Season 1 Episode 4. Let's savor this development for a second.
First and foremost, I don't hate the character. She had an interesting backstory for all the lies. And Sarah Habel, who portrayed Ms. Grundy, did a fine job making her seem timid yet manipulative.
This has more to do with the teacher-student affair storyline. I've seen this trope done to death before in teen dramas. I didn't want them to dive too much into this plot.
Luckily it only lasted four episodes. And we also got an extra mystery thrown in to explain this younger Ms. Grundy.
Betty: Ms. Grundy showed up in Riverdale a year ago, out of thin air. There is no record of her before that. »

This week on Riverdale, the gang enjoys an old-school night at the drive-in… while an important piece of the Jason Blossom puzzle packs up and leaves town.
Betty is still stewing over the revelation last week that Dilton spotted Miss Grundy’s car at the river on the Fourth of July. She remembers that Archie was “taking” “lessons” (ahem) from Grundy at the time, and starts to suspect them of having an affair. She confronts Archie about it in the Pop’s parking lot, and he blurts out, “Did Jughead tell you? »
Mostly everyone in town has been falling under the alluring spell of Ms. Grundy. But that looks to be changing on Riverdale Season 1 Episode 4.
While Mr. Andrews is the latest to crush on the music teacher, Betty and Veronica have their sights set on doing their own investigation. Will they find anything shocking? Will Mr. Andrews make his move? And how will Jughead's mission go in saving the drive-in?
And don't forget, you can watch Riverdale online via TV Fanatic to get caught up on all the drama!
1. Flower Delivery - Riverdale Season 1 Episode 4 Archie and Mr. Andrews deliver a pretty bouquet to a special someone. Is this a completely innocent gesture or will it cause trouble down the line? Seeing how things on Riverdale have unfolded so far, this sweet bouquet smells like drama. »

The battle lines are drawn: It's La La Land, a musical fantasy about white lovers in Hollywood, versus Moonlight, a searing drama about black youth surviving on the streets of Miami. That contest is symptomatic of how serious Oscar is – or isn't – about diversity. After two years in which not a single black actor showed up among the acting nominees, this year's crop includes seven actors of color: Mahershala Ali, Viola Davis, Naomie Harris, Ruth Negga, Dev Patel, Octavia Spencer and Denzel Washington.

With yet another opportunity to win this year, Jeff Bridges expands his Academy Awards career to 45 years — with the chance to add to it. This is quite an accomplishment as there are very few actors and actresses with a span of that long between their last or most recent nomination. Let’s take a look at some of these other legends with Oscar stretches almost as long as or even longer than that of Bridges.
This year Bridges is nominated for best supporting actor for Hell or High Water and is up against Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), Lucas Hedges (Manchester by the Sea), Dev Patel (Lion), and Michael Shannon (Nocturnal Animals). Hell or High Water — a Western crime thriller directed by David Mackenzie and written by Taylor Sheridan — is also nominated for best picture, best original screenplay, »

Now having taken in three episodes of Riverdale, something has become very apparent to me: Never, ever miss the final minutes because there’s going to be some kind of a shocker and/or crazy cliffhanger that guarantees you’ll be coming back the following week.
In this case, it’s the trailer for next week’s episode, “Chapter Four: The Last Picture Show,” that has everybody talking. Long story short, Miss Grundy isn’t who she says she is.

When this series kicked off, I found myself quite surprised when Miss Grundy was cast so young and wrote it off as the producers taking advantage of developing a “Hot for Teacher” scenario with Archie, which they have done. But now, we’re learning that some identity theft may be afoot and she has assumed the identity »

For whatever reason, Peter Bogdanovich's 1971 career-igniter The Last Picture Show had been rattling around in my mind. A hazy lone monochrome mental tumbleweed ambling through every now and then. Although I've read about it at length in numerous books and articles over the years, not the least of which being Peter Biskind's Easy Riders, Raging Bulls, I'd only actually seen the film, beginning to end, once. That was back in college, which means it was half my lifetime ago. I wasn't sure why the film, with its greyed-out, desolate vibe had started kicking around upstairs, yet there it was. Then one day, doing the dishes and listening to a recent Jeff Bridges interview on the radio show Fresh Air, it came up that the...

With Chris Pine and Ben Foster as bank-robbing brothers and Jeff Bridges as the Texas Ranger on their tail, David Mackenzie’s “Hell or High Water” debuted at Cannes to critics’ raves and earned an original screenplay Oscar nomination. The indie box-office hit of 2016 is the result of that increasingly rare invention: an original screenplay. It sprang from the mind of Taylor Sheridan, a Texas-born actor who, in the tradition of “The Last Picture Show” and “Hud” author Larry McMurtry (another Texan whose stories fueled some great movies), set his story in the Lone Star State.
Sheridan wrote “Hell or High Water” after his first script, “Sicario,” but “Hell or High Water” sold first. The writer sees both films as part of a trilogy of “the modern-day American frontier,” he told us, “about how much has changed in 100 years, and how much things haven’t. What are the consequences of »
