The top ten most undeserved Oscars of the last 20 years

16 December 2010 4:37 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The Academy Awards are defined as “recognizing the excellence of professionals in the film industry, including actors, directors and writers”. Now this may be true, and while most of the films awarded with the prestigious little golden man are indeed excellent, the adjective “best” that goes in front of each award sort of makes you think 'excellent' isn’t always enough.

Here is a list of 10 films, actors, directors and writers that won, they were (mostly) good films, but to deem the “best” that year in their respective categories is a little far-fetched...

10: No Country For Old Men (2008) – Best Adapted Screenplay

The 2008 Academy Awards saw two non-traditional Westerns go head to head: the Coen Brothers’ No Country For Old Men, and Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood (2008). Daniel Day Lewis rightly took home the Best Actor in a Leading Role award for his role of Daniel Plainview, »

Their Best Role: Tommy Lee Jones in 'The Fugitive'

8 December 2010 1:32 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Features, Cinematical

In John Wells' 'The Company Men,' which opens in limited release later this month before expanding in January, Tommy Lee Jones plays a top-level executive at a shipbuilding company who is facing a crisis of conscience. The company has begun laying off thousands of workers to deal with the economic downturn -- sales exec Ben Affleck is among the first to go, while middle-management exec Chris Cooper fears for his survival -- and Jones rages at the light, fighting a losing battle with his boss and old friend Craig T. Nelson in behalf of humane and fair treatment of the employees.

Initially it seems odd to see Jones dressed in expensive suits with every hair in place. He gives an exquisite performance as a businessman worn down by the ceaseless corporate quest for more profits and increased shareholder value, no matter the human cost. »

Harrison Ford & Daniel Craig Whoop It Up In The New Cowboys & Aliens Trailer…Plus New Photos Of Olivia Wilde

17 November 2010 1:08 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Time to saddle up. Yahoo! Movies has debuted the new trailer for Universal Pictures’ Cowboys And Aliens. Watch as Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford team up to battle invaders in the Western action/adventure directed by Jon Favreau. Check out the new pictures below after the trailer.

I can’t wait to see this film - its like Unforgiven meets Independence Day! How totally awesome that Harrison Ford is in this? Sounds like he did in The Fugitive. “I didn’t kill my wife ….You find the One-Armed Man!!” Ford even looks all jacked up like he did in that movie. And the thing on Daniel Craig’s arm makes me think of Westworld too…no? A total throwback to Yul Brenner.

Synopsis:

Blockbuster filmmaker Jon Favreau directs Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford in an event film for summer 2011 that crosses the classic Western with the alien-invasion movie in a blazingly original way: Cowboys & Aliens. »

HeyUGuys IMDb250 Project – Week 40

15 November 2010 4:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The IMDb250. A list of the top 250 films as ranked by the users of the biggest Internet movie site on the web. It is based upon the ratings provided by the users of the Internet Movie Database, which number into the millions. As such, it’s a perfect representation of the opinions of the movie masses, and arguably the most comprehensive ranking system on the Internet.

It’s because of this that we at HeyUGuys (and in this case we is myself and Barry) have decided to set ourselves a project. To watch and review all 250 movies on the list. We’ve frozen the list as of January 1st of this year. It’s not as simple as it sounds, we are watching them all in one year, 125 each.

This is our 40th update, my next five films watched for the project. You can find all our previous week’s updates here. »

There were some big surprises at the box office last week as the new romantic comedy Life as We Know It, which was supposed to debut at the top of the charts only took second place. Instead, David Fincher's The Social Network held strong and took the number one spot for a second week in a row.

Hollywood's late bloomers

26 August 2010 3:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Hollywood may be obsessed with youth and speed, but just occasionally age and wisdom win out. Joe Queenan on the late bloomers who make a good case for biding one's time

Early next year, Annette Bening will garner an Oscar nomination for her tart, intense performance as Julianne Moore's control-freak lover in The Kids Are All Right. She could just as easily be nominated for her tart, intense performance as a neurotic middle-aged healthcare professional in the underrated film Mother and Child, another engaging arthouse release that surfaced a few months ago. In effect, after more than a decade of working infrequently, and even then mostly appearing in duds (Being Julia, The Women, Running with Scissors ) Annette Bening is making a serious comeback at the age of 52, 20 years after most leading ladies have arrived at the expiration date for their careers.

What makes this return to centre stage even »

Exclusive: Jane Lynch Talks I Do & I Don't

27 July 2010 3:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Jane Lynch talks I Do & I Don'tJane Lynch's popularity exploded last year with her scene-stealing performance as head cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester on Fox's hugely popular dramedy Glee. This week, she can also be seen in the hilarious new romantic outing I Do & I Don't, which arrives on DVD today, July 20th. Featuring an all-star ensemble cast, this outrageous adventure follows a blissfully unaware couple (Bryan Callen and Alexie Gilmore) that must endure church-sanctioned marriage counseling before they can tie the knot. Little do they know, the couple (Jane Lynch and Matt Servitto) they're assigned to turn out to be beyond dysfunctional and on the edge of divorce themselves.

We recently caught up with Jane Lynch to reminisce about the glory days of her career and what this new project means to her personally. Here is our conversation:

new this week in U.S., Canadian, and U.K. theaters: ‘Salt,’ ‘Ramona and Beezus,’ ‘Toy Story 3,’ ‘Splice,’ more

23 July 2010 4:34 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

U.S. And Canada/Opening Wide Salt: Angelina Jolie’s CIA agent goes on the lam after she is accused of being a double agent for a cadre of Russians who miss the Cold War. Cuz the Cold War was so much fun. If you can’t make it to the multiplex, try: • The Fugitive (1993): Harrison Ford’s doctor goes on the run in order to prove his innocence when accused of murder; just as thrilling, if somewhat less plausible, than Salt. • The Hunt for Red October (1990): Alec Baldwin’s mild-mannered CIA analyst is forced to become a field agent when Sean Connery’s Russian sub captain aims his nuclear-armed vessel square at the East Coast of the U.S. • Mata Hari (1931): Classic girl-spy stuff with Greta Garbo as the legendary secret agent. • The Avengers (1961-1969): Choose from Diana Rigg as Emma Peel or Honor Blackman »

Glee star Jane Lynch plays the standout role in the musical television, internet and marketing hit of the year

Job: actor

Age: 49

Industry: television, music

New entry

Jane Lynch is the anti-hero viewers love to hate in Glee, the breakout hit that reinvented musical television and proved there was another way for TV shows to make money.

One of a select band of programmes that is adored by critics but also becomes a popular hit, Glee was showered with awards and spawned a string of hit songs and albums, generating big returns for its Us producer and broadcaster Fox.

The story of a group of teenage misfits who find redemption in the high school singing group – or glee club – Lynch is the star of the show as fearsome cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester.

The gay actor had her big break when she was spotted by Spinal Tap's Christopher Guest and »

Summer Of '85: 25 Years, 25 Films

30 June 2010 5:30 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The summer of 1985. Has it really been twenty-five years. Wow! I don't really feel old, but its amazing that era was so long ago and yet the memories feel like yesterday. I was ten going on eleven and enjoying my summer break. Though my parents wouldn't let me leave my neighborhood with my friends, they always took me to the cinema as often as they could, which is where my love of movies comes from. I consider myself fortunate to have shared some great movie moments with my family and with my parents coming to town to visit me this summer, we hope to have some more.Hollywood still makes great movies today, but the eighties were a time when most of the movies you saw were good. At least they seemed to be good at that early age. Time can often be cruel and with maturity comes the revelation »

[Interview Pt. 1] Rob Corddry Talks ‘Hot Tub Time Machine’

30 June 2010 6:59 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Interviewing a comedic actor can be difficult. You never know if you’re going to end up with someone who just jokes around the whole time and doesn’t give you real answers, but thankfully, that wasn’t the case with Rob Corddry. You probably know Corddry from his old days on The Daily Show and his latest work in films such as Harold and Kumar 2 and What Happens In Vegas.

If are a fan, then you also know he’s pretty damn funny. If you didn’t get a chance to catch Hot Tub Time Machine in theaters then you should do yourself a favor and catch it on blu-ray. While it did somewhat respectable business in theaters, it’ll surely be more appreciated on video. Here’s what Corddry had to say about Hot Tub Time Machine in part one of our interview with him:
