Watch: 3-Minute Supercut Retrospective Commemorating Best Picture Oscar Winners Of 1990s

8 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With the awards season on the horizon, now is as good a time as any to look back on the movies that won favor with the Academy. Earlier this year, a supercut emerged highlighting the Best Picture Oscar winners of the 2000s, and now video editor Miguel Branco has turned his eye to the 1990s, with a fresh video celebrating the movies that defined a decade. And indeed, the 1990s seemed to mostly be defined by the epic drama, with "Dances With Wolves," "Braveheart, "Schindler's List" and "The English Patient" taking home Oscar gold. But the Academy took chances too, honoring Jonathan Demme's horror "Silence Of The Lambs," Clint Eastwood's western "Unforgiven" and Sam Mendes' "American Beauty" as well. Take a look a the full video below, and let us know if these winners still stand the test of time, or if you would have chosen differently. »

Critical Intent: Roger Ebert's Life on Film

2 July 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

On a December morning, in 2012, Steve James walked into a patient's room at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and immediately felt remorse. With his lower jaw removed from several surgeries related to a 11-year battle with cancer of the thyroid and salivary glands, Roger Ebert, the iconic film critic, was all strung up, looking rather helpless, sound asleep. "I remember looking [at him] and going, Aw shit, I dunno," the filmmaker recalls of the emotional first day of shooting Life Itself, his documentary on Ebert. "I don't know how people are going to feel about this. »

13 actors who should actually be bigger movie stars

26 June 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Climbing the Hollywood ladder isn't easy. One tier of success does not guarantee another.  That often means actors can reach one level of notoriety, but never reach breakout status.  Often it takes years to become a real movie star.  Anyone remember how long it took Liam Neeson? You could argue that Neeson's first real movie role was in Roland Joffee's "The Mission" way back in 1986 (released before many of you were even born).  His major breakout should have been Steven Spielberg's "Schindler's List" where he earned a coveted best actor nomination.  Instead, Neeson followed it up with a string of bombs before George Lucas cast him as Qui-Gon Jinn in "Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace." That was the second spark. The third spark?  Playing Ra's al Ghul in "Batman Begins."  And then, of all things, "Taken."  It's hard to believe, but Neeson didn't become a household name until that blockbuster 2008 thriller. »

Set in the fictional Republic of Zubrowka, Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel is a story within a story within a story within a story. The first takes place in present day and bookends the feature, two small segments where a young girl, carrying a book, is visiting the grave of Zubrowka's "national treasure." The "treasure" is a novelist whose name is never revealed and the book is The Grand Budapest Hotel.

It is here we flash back to 1985 to meet the author (played by Tom Wilkinson) who briefly explains how the book came to be.

Murray Abraham) who just so happens to have the story that will become the author's book.

Over dinner, Mr. Moustafa recounts the time he was a lobby boy at the »

Release dates for Spielberg's new films confirmed

16 June 2014 10:42 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Bfg and Steven Spielberg's thus far untitled Cold War spy thriller now have release dates...

News

Ever since he directed Jurassic Park and Schindler's List back to back, Steven Spielberg has had periods where he's directed films in clumps. Most notably, he did The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Amistad and Saving Private Ryan pretty much back to back, pocketing an Oscar for the last of those three.

A few years later, he then went from A.I. to Minority Report to Catch Me If You Can, and in 2005 from War Of The Worlds to Munich. More recently, he shot War Horse and Lincoln without too much of a gap between them.

Now? He's set up a new pair of projects, and he's diving straight in, one after the other. The first is his thus-far untitled Cold War thriller, which is set to reunite him with Tom Hanks. The Coen brothers have penned the screenplay. »

When Is it Okay to Take Little Kids to R-Rated Movies?

4 June 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I don't know about you, but I'm seeing more and more parents taking their kids out to the cinema with them to watch rated R movies. I'm talking about kids from infant age to around 8 years old. Most of the shows I see them at are late night screenings as well. I initially thought that perhaps parents are bringing them late so the kids would just sleep through it, but that never happens. These kids stay up and watch what's on the big screen.

I was 8 years old when I saw my first R-rated movie in theaters. My dad and my uncle took me to see James Cameron's Aliens, and it was one of the coolest experiences of my life. So I'm not a prude when it comes to R-rated flicks. But how young is too young? 

The standard age set for Rated-r films by the MPAA is 17 and up, »

Steven Seagal blasts Liam Neeson: "He's not an action movie guy"

30 May 2014 6:41 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Steven Seagal has criticised Liam Neeson, saying that the Taken star is not a proper action hero.

Martial-artist-turned-Hollywood-star Seagal, whose credits include Under Siege and the recent Force of Execution, suggested that the Oscar-nominated Schindler's List actor wasn't "a great warrior".

Speaking to The Big Issue, Seagal said that Neeson was lucky to be getting so much work in action roles.

"He can't fight, he's not an action movie guy at all and he's getting action movies now so that should tell you something," Seagal commented.

"He's a great dramatic actor. Is he an action guy? No. Is he a great fighter, a great warrior? No. Let's be honest."

Seagal also lamented the demise of the more traditional action movie, adding that visual effects had levelled the playing field for the genre.

"There are a lot of different methods of making movies now. They use a lot of special effects, »

27 May 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Star Wars Episode 7: Everything you need to know

Hover over the image above to see who's who in Star Wars: Episode VII

The curtain has been lifted just a tad on Star Wars: Episode VII with the unveiling of the cast for Jj Abrams's continuation of the space saga. We're more than 18 months from heading back to a galaxy far, far away, but there's still plenty of information floating in the ether about this hotly-anticipated sequel. Here's everything you need to know...

Jj Abrams is working with some trusted hands behind the camera

When George Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney at the tail end of 2012, he entrusted his company with Kathleen Kennedy, a producer whose work stretches right back to Steven Spielberg's golden run in the '80s. Kennedy has overseen the Indiana Jones movies, had a hand in the Back to the Future trilogy and classier fare like Schindler's List and Lincoln. If you're looking »

Steven Spielberg Almost Directed Cape Fear With Robert De Niro

14 May 2014 9:49 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Steven Spielberg's career has been filled with hits and misses that showcased his strengths and weaknesses as a director. But what if one of his career defining hits, Schindler's List, was directed by Martin Scorsese . as he originally had intended? Well then we'd have a version of the Cape Fear remake directed by Steven Spielberg, and (still) starring Robert De Niro. Hold on to something, because things are about to get a little "timey wimey" as we theorize what such a film might have been like. As of this moment, Steven Spielberg's next two projects are an untitled Tom Hanks drama set in the Cold War, and his adaptation of Roald Dahl's book The Bfg. But the legendary director has made a "career" out of abandoned projects. In my opinion, the most interesting project that almost had the distinction of being "A Steven Spielberg Film" has to »

A second viewing brings out the humanity in 12 Years a Slave, while Brydon and Coogan prove a better fit for the small screen

No DVD release this year arrives on shelves more pre-gilded than 12 Years a Slave (Entertainment One, 15), the darling of the last Oscar season though the rare one, its most ardent champions insist, that is actually for life, not just for Christmas. Since appearing on the festival circuit last autumn, Steve McQueen's solemnly poetic realisation of freeman-turned-slave Solomon Northup's memoir has been lavished with praise that, however deserved, has bordered on the prescriptive: Amy Poehler's priceless Golden Globes quip that she'd "never look at slavery the same way again" was a cheeky rejoinder to publicity that sold the film more on its Important Issues than its tender, tactile humanity.

As corporeally fixated as McQueen's previous features, Hunger and Shame, 12 Years a Slave takes as given »

Focusing On Spielberg's Use of the Long Take

9 May 2014 2:53 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Vimeo user Tony Zhou has put together an excellent, eight minute look at Steven Spielberg's use of one shots throughout his filmography and the best part is Zhou doesn't approach it strictly from an educational perspective, but also injects his own opinion in there keeping things lively... "This is probably the most jerked-off-to type of shot in filmmaking." One overlooked aspect of Spielberg is that he's actually a stealth master of the long take. From Duel to Tintin, for forty years, he has sneakily filmed many scenes in a single continuous shot. In conjunction, he also offers two additional videos showing the examples he uses in the video, only in real-time rather than sped up, as he does for the video itself. Zhou doesn't come across as a Spielberg fanboy, but more as someone who appreciates what Spielberg accomplishes as a filmmaking technician and stresses the difference between Spielberg's »

Los Angeles (AP) — President Obama shared a table with Steven Spielberg and Bruce Springsteen at a benefit dinner, but broke away to chat with Barbra Streisand and Samuel L. Jackson. The president was the guest of honor Wednesday at a fundraising gala celebrating the USC Shoah Foundation, which Spielberg established 20 years ago to collect video testimonies from survivors of the Holocaust and other genocides. Inspired by the making of "Schindler's List," the video archive Spielberg created now includes more than 50,000 personal accounts and is available to schools across the globe.

Kim Kardashian Blogs About Her Daughter And Racism

7 May 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Kim Kardashian wrote about her fears and concerns for her daughter, North West, and pledged to publicly fight against racism in a blog post published Wednesday, May 7.

Kim Kardashian Writes About Racism

The post, titled “On My Mind,” alluded to recent incidents involving her, her daughter and her fiancé Kanye West that have made her more aware of the racism that persists in today’s society.

“To be honest, before I had North, I never really gave racism or discrimination a lot of thought. It is obviously a topic that Kanye is passionate about, but I guess it was easier for me to believe that it was someone else’s battle. But recently, I’ve read and personally experienced some incidents that have sickened me and made me take notice,” Kardashian wrote.

Kardashian admits that she never felt any personal responsibility to fight against racism until she became a mother. »
