Jason Dufner had a simple request for Tiger Woods this week - can you play 36 holes on Friday at the Tiger Woods' World Challenge at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, California? The reason is obvious for college football fans - after the Auburn Tigers upset the Alabama Crimson Tide in dramatic fashion last weekend, they now play the Missouri Tigers in the SEC Championship Game on Saturday. If Jason could get Tiger to ask the other golfers to pull a double shift and play the 2nd and 3rd rounds on Friday, the boys would all have Saturday off and Dufner could watch his beloved Tigers play for the SEC championship without interruption. Jason Tweeted his request: "Dear Mr @TigerWoods I petition the event this week to play 36 holes Thurs and Friday,so I can watch my beloved Auburn play for SEC champ thx." Woods is fairly new to »
The 70-year-old veteran producer has been looking to secure a new home for his movie releases since October, when Disney opted not to renew his deal beyond this year.
“Jerry Bruckheimer is one of the most creative and prolific producers in motion picture history,” said Paramount Pictures Chairman and CEO Brad Grey. “His signature style has attracted huge global audiences and we are thrilled to have him back in the Paramount family.”
“It is great to be back at Paramount,” Bruckheimer said. “I look forward to working with Brad Grey and his entire team.”

Last Saturday’s wild Auburn-Alabama game on CBS was the season’s most-watched college contest, drawing 13.8 million viewers, according to Nielsen.
That gives the “SEC on CBS” the three most-watched college football games of the season — all featuring the defending champion Crimson Tide of Alabama. The two biggest draws prior to Saturday were Alabama’s mid-September victory over Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M (13.7 million) and the Tide’s victory over Lsu in primetime last month (11.9 million).
Not surprisingly, CBS Sports is on pace for its top-rated season of college football since it began airing primarily SEC games in 2001.
Saturday’s much-anticipated game, which appeared headed toward overtime in the closing seconds, was instead clinched on Auburn’s 109-yard return of a missed Alabama field goal as time ran out, giving the Tigers a stunning 34-28 victory over their in-state rivals in the Iron Bowl.

It was a sports ending like out of a movie. The one-loss Auburn Tigers defeated the so-far undefeated Alabama Crimson Tide on a last-second missed field goal returned for a touchdown -- returned 109 yards.
The score was tied 28-28 with mere seconds to go and Alabama was attempting a 56-yard field goal to win the game. But they missed and instead, Auburn ran the ball back to win 34-28.
Auburn now heads to the SEC Championship game next Saturday, Dec. 7, where they will play either the Missouri Tigers or the South Carolina Gamecocks, depending on the outcome of their respective games today. And it looks like Alabama will not three-peat on its National Championship title.
What did you think of the wild finish?
The Iron Bowl is going to be a match-up of epic proportions Saturday (Nov. 30), as the undefeated Alabama Crimson Tide takes on the 10-1 Auburn Tigers, their inter-state rival just 150 miles away.
Auburn's only loss this year came at Lsu (now ranked 17th, then ranked 6th). The winner of this game will face off against (most likely) Missouri in the SEC title game next weekend -- though they could be playing South Carolina, depending on how the Mizzou Tigers and Gamecocks do today as well.
Tune in here for the live stream if you can't be watching on TV or check out CBSSports. The game kicks off at 3:30 p.m. Et on CBS.

The five-year-old superhero has reportedly been given an original score by the iconic Batman composer
Batkid could be getting some theme music. Film composer Hans Zimmer has reportedly completed an original score for the five-year-old superhero who recently "saved" San Francisco in a staged charity campaign.
"Yes, Hans did write a score for Batkid," Zimmer's publicist, Rae Murillo, revealed to Radio.com. "We're not yet sure when or how the music will be incorporated, but I do know that there are different elements and surprises being rolled out ... so we're just waiting to see how the music is going to be used."
More than 11,000 volunteers helped the charity Make-a-Wish stage a day of heroics for their tiny caped crusader. Batkid's secret identity is Miles Scott, a young boy who is recovering from leukaemia and who claimed to have just one wish: "to be Batkid". San Francisco's mayor, police chief and »

“Against the Tide” is a remarkable documentary that shows how two larger than life men in the college sports world absorbed and understood the social changes of the times, and created a culture of acceptance in the lily white SEC Crimson Tide: University of Alabama. The documentary is laced with fantastic interviews and tales of a landmark football game that broke down the segregated Crimson Tide team, yet this filmed effort is hardly anti-Alabama. It presents the program and these two men, legendary coaches USC coach John McKay and Bama's coach Paul “Bear” Bryant, in a respectful light. The title of this film is a summation of how Bear Bryant quietly sold the idea of an integrated University of »

Prolific composer Hans Zimmer has created a multitude of memorable film scores in his long career, from films like Crimson Tide, The Rock, Gladiator, Backdraft, The Dark Knight trilogy, Pirates Of The Carribbean, Inception, The Lion King, and many, many more. With the closing of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, however, Zimmer was without a superhero franchise to work on (edit: How I forgot Man Of Steel, I'll never know), but has now teamed up with a number of talented »

Fancy bagging yourself a continuity cockup, or gathering a harvest of arcane film facts? Sit down, my friend, and welcome to the strangely thrilling world of the rewatcher
• Why I love … movie overacting
• Why I love … Crimson Tide's 'Captain, I cannot concur' scene
Oh my God, where is Jack Nicholson's tie? He had it on just a few seconds ago, as he was being forcefully cross-examined in his lovely uniform in 1992's A Few Good Men, written by Aaron Sorkin. But now that he's incriminated himself (and threatened to remove lawyer Tom Cruise's head and urinate in his skull), his tie has gone. Call continuity! Or actually, don't bother. Because it's very unlikely that anyone will notice – not unless they watch the film about 20 times, that is. Like I did.
Watching films that many times – not all films, just ones I really love – invariably throws up moments like this. »

Denzel Washington and Gene Hackman both give blistering performances in this now classic submarine film, and the tension that crackles between them comes to an explosive head in the central "I cannot concur" scene, in which the two go shouty crackers at each other – and then, shockingly, what looks very much like a mutiny takes place.
Washington and Hackman are such superb actors that if you had them yelling at each other, and over each other, while arguing about their shopping, or a pair of gardening gloves, it would be worth tuning in for. But the makers of Crimson Tide go to a lot of trouble to make this scene special.

Tony Scott had been attached to direct back in 2011, and there was talk in February that Joe Carnahan was circling the project before Doug Liman came aboard. The title refers to small submarines that South American cartels use to smuggle their illegal drugs into the U.S. Our report from 2011 revealed that the story was said to be in the same vein as Tony Scott's thrillers Crimson Tide and Man on Fire, although no specific plot details have been released.

You know at the end of some action movies where everyone jumps up in euphoria? Is it just us that thinks they've forgotten a few things?
Every now and then, there's an action movie that involves our hero fighting the good fight, whilst a crowd of people wait, tensed up, to hear the outcome. Usually these people wear expensive suits and look important. Yet these strange people share something in common. When the baddies have been defeated and they get the news, they have a habit of running around as if it's been the best day ever. Furthermore, they have a habit of forgetting that lots of people may have died, and died in some cases just minutes before. You want examples?

According to a new rumor, Katherine Webb and her boyfriend A.J. McCarron have called it quits. But is there any truth to the story? Not according to the former Miss Alabama.
Radar Online initially reported that the Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback and his beauty pageant girlfriend had broken up. The site claimed Webb's mother Leslie Webb confirmed the story, but Webb is singing a different tune.
"Don't believe everything you hear...smh," she tweets.
Her publicist clarifies to E! Online, "A.J. and Katherine are totally fine. She is working a lot and A.J. is in the middle of the college football season."
Webb shot to fame when she got a surprising amount of camera time during the Notre Dame-Alabama Bcs National Championship on Jan. 7. She later went on to star in the ABC reality series "Splash." »
For years I’ve been attempting to write a piece entitled ‘Why Jerry Bruckheimer needs to Ditch Disney’ but it’s never come off. I’m not entirely sure why I never managed to write anything on the subject but now news breaks that Disney and Bruckheimer Films will be parting ways at the end of 2014, it seems like the perfect time to write my reasons for why I think the main man Jerry needs to break free from The Mouse House.
Disney and Bruckheimer Films first got together back in the 1990s with movies including The Ref, Con Air, Armageddon, Enemy of the State, Gone in 60 Seconds, Coyote Ugly, Pearl Harbor, Bad Company, Veronica Guerin, King Arthur, Confessions of a Shopaholic and Déjà Vu which all fell under the Touchstone Pictures label which is owned by Disney. Because of the success of Touchstone, »

After several decades together, The Walt Disney Co and producer Jerry Bruckheimer are parting ways.
In an official statement from Disney, the studio has announced that it and Bruckheimer have decided not to renew their current deal which gives Disney first-look rights to the producer's films.
The pair will continue working together on various projects, including a fifth installment in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise due for release in 2016.
The statement suggests another "National Treasure" film might eventually be in the works, while Bruckheimer himself is: "looking to produce more mature films outside the scope of the Disney brand."
The deal, which began in the 1990s, has yielded over two dozen films including major hits like "Crimson Tide," "Dangerous Minds," "The Rock," "Con Air," "Gone in 60 Seconds," "Remember the Titans," "Armageddon," "Enemy of the State," "Pearl Harbor," "National Treasure," "Deja Vu," "G-Force" and the four "Pirates of the Caribbean" films. »

Disc of the week
Plein Soleil was the first adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s The Talented Mr Ripley, and Alain Delon’s star-making turn as the beautiful and charming villain Tom Ripley is arguably the best of the four on screen portrayals of the amoral social climber.
Ripley is sent to Italy to persuade the playboy son of an American millionaire to return home to San Francisco, but when it becomes apparent that Phillipe has no intention of going home so that Ripley can collect his fee, Ripley decides that actually becoming Phillipe, and gaining control of his considerable assets, is a much better prospect. Gradually ingratiating himself with the playboy and his fiancé Marge (although she is annoyed with their boyish camaraderie and is dubious about Ripley), Ripley painstakingly constructs his imitation of Phillipe while quietly engineering the opportunity to make him disappear, the final step »
