The Definitive Movies of 1995

30 January 2015 8:01 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 1990′s introduced the world to Quentin Tarantino, saw the creation of the Nc-17 rating, and began the slow call toward fully computer animated films. It began the slow (still slow) movement toward a more diverse industry, with the first African-American director earning an Oscar nomination (John Singleton for “Boyz in the Hood”). And the year after one of the greatest years in the history of film, 1995 came plodding along, trying to keep up. So, for the first definitive list of 2015, we are going to look back 20 years at a year that, at first glance, doesn’t look so hot. It’s ripe with flops, but it’s also full of debuts, trailblazing beginnings, and better films than it gets credit for. But, the caveat still stands: this is not a “best of” list. In fact, there are a lot of bad movies on this list. But, they are movies that made a cultural impact, »

With ‘Lego’ Out Of The Way, Disney’s ‘Big Hero 6′ Tries To Become A Hero At The Oscars – Video

20 January 2015 3:18 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: There’s no question that Walt Disney Animation Studios is on a tear. After last year’s enormous worldwide box office phenomenon and double Oscar winner Frozen, it was thought ‘How do you top this?’ But although Disney’s great awards’ hope this year, Big Hero 6 from directors Don Hall and Chris Williams, is in no way “topping” the success of Frozen, it has proven to be a major player in its own right. It has nominations from several groups including the Annies and this weekend’s upcoming PGA Awards as well as BAFTA and, of course, the Oscars as Best Animated Feature. That race has gotten a lot  more interesting since the nominations revealed a big snub for presumed frontrunner The Lego Movie, which was left off the list (though it did get a Best Song nod).

Disney believes Big Hero 6  is very much in play, »

Jennifer Lawrence sat down with Eddie Redmayne for Interview magazine, where the Hunger Games star and the Theory of Everything lead got into the intricacies of Hollywood life and the surreal nature of stardom.

As it turns out, there's a reason we all love Eddie and Jennifer so much –they're cute and totally relatable. Here are five moments from their enthralling conversation that proves just how awesome they are.

Eddie on His Love of Reality Shows

"I don't talk about it. It's really been bad on this press tour. I come home from trying to pretend to know about astronomy and physics all day and turn on The Real Housewives… I've been a closet lover of faux-reality TV since The Hills. It's bad."

Watch: AFI Awards 2014 Montage

12 January 2015 10:21 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The American Film Institute is probably best known for those lists of the 100 Greatest Movies of All Time (y'know... if it's an American production in some way). Well, every year they hold their own awards, because every group of people has to have awards. They recognize the ten best films (for this year, it's eleven due to a tie) and the ten best television programs of the year. There are not winners in these categories, but each one gets celebrated. On that front, I kind of like the AFI approach to awards. Along with the awards, AFI has put together this four and a half minute montage chronicling the last 120 years of film. Now, it would be ridiculous to cover every single year. Instead, they start with 1894's Strong Man and jump every ten years, showcasing films like Rear Window, The Godfather: Part II, Pulp Fiction, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind »

The Voice UK's Letitia: 'I don't have the look at the moment'

10 January 2015 4:01 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Voice UK contestant Letitia George has admitted that she thinks her "look" has stopped her from getting West End roles.

George, who joined Team Ricky after impressing the coaches with her take on Sam Smith's 'Stay With Me', told Digital Spy that she feels she missed out on a part in the West End production of The Lion King.

"I've always wanted to be on the West End - it's my ultimate dream," she said. "And I auditioned [for The Lion King] about two years ago... and the guy on the audition panel said, 'Oh my God, your voice is so fantastic, your performance and everything', just giving me really, really good feedback.

"I was thinking, 'This is sounding positive, I'm feeling really good about it'. And then I just never heard back and just thought, 'He complimented my voice there and then, he thought I was really good, so what else could it have been? »

Eddie Redmayne's Wife Was Late to Her Own Wedding

8 January 2015 7:28 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Every wedding has its share of problems, and Eddie Redmayne's was no exception! His bride-to-be was late to her own ceremony.

The 33-year-old Theory of Everything star sat down with EllenDeGeneres, where he talked about tying the knot with Hannah Bagshawe in December, and her difficulty with punctuality.

"[My wife] has never been on time for anything in her life," Redmayne told Ellen. "She was a good half-hour late. Her grandfather had to be some help from going and summoning her."

But Redmayne insisted that he wasn't worried, as he had been expecting it all along.

"Everyone else was really stressed, but I was kind of relaxed knowing that she'd never been on time for pretty much anything in her life," Redmayne said.

Watch: How Composer Hans Zimmer Captured the Metaphysical and the Mystical in 'Interstellar'

8 January 2015 1:43 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

"It was very important for me that the music not pay any attention to the genre of the film," says director Christopher Nolan of his latest collaboration with composer Hans Zimmer, whose haunting, organ-driven "Interstellar" soundtrack is a Best Original Score Oscar contender. The video, below, reveals why Zimmer chose to use a church organ in London, and how he built the score from the kernel of an idea about a father-daughter relationship, which gives this cosmic brain-bender its earthly, emotional heft. It's one of Zimmer's most gorgeous scores, and the fact that the German-born, eight-time Oscar-nominated composer hasn't won since 1995's "The Lion King," his sole win, may work in his favor come Academy Awards time. Nominees unspool bright and early on January 15. Read More: Five Oscar-Contending Film Scores That Got Under Our Skin Listen to the full score here, and read our summer 2014 interview with Zimmer here. »

20 Mind-Blowing Facts You Never Knew About Sons Of Anarchy

6 January 2015 1:34 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

FX

This December past saw the climactic, bloody and oil-slicked ending to everybody’s favourite contemporary re-telling of Hamlet. No, not the one where Ethan Hawke is a film student whose father was CEO of the “Denmark Corporation”. Or the David Tenant one. Or The Lion King. Sons Of Anarchy! Remember? Sure, it looked like hyper-violent biker drama, but it’d make the Bard proud.

Well, possibly. Depends how you feel about the ending really. Anyway, Kurt Sutter’s epic crime TV series about Jax Teller – the young member of a biker gang founded by his deceased father, who starts to think maybe all this gun-running and hog-riding is maybe not so ethical – and his fluctuating levels of facial hair was pretty great while it lasted.

Across its seven superlative seasons Sons Of Anarchy amassed a huge cult following, hanging on every cliffhanger, shocking character death and appearance by a former shock-rock icon. »
