Spotlight on the Stars: Matthew McConaughey

5 November 2014 1:09 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at one of the most unusual A-listers that Hollywood has to offer. It’s none other than Matthew McConaughey, a unique star in the business. Up until recently known as a talented but easygoing movie star, he’s since undergone a career transformation that’s not just made him one of the most sought after actors around, but one of the most acclaimed as well. Last year alone, he won the Academy Award for Best Actor in a very strong year. He’s entered the second phase of his career and could reach the stratosphere before long. McConaughey got his start by stealing his scenes in Dazed and Confused. In fact, that first theatrical role gave him some instantly quotable dialogue and really established him as an interesting new actor on the scene. His next group of roles, »

Exclusive Interview: Talking 'Fury' With Director David Ayer

15 October 2014 9:29 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Director David Ayer made his directorial debut with his original screenplay Harsh Times. The gritty drama, starring Christian Bale and Freddy Rodriguez, which was released in the fall of 2006. Ayer garnered widespread acclaim and accolades for his hyper-realistic portrayal of life behind the blue line in End of Watch (2012).  He moved to Los Angeles as a teenager and the experiences of his upbringing shaped much of his artistic vision and his inside knowledge and affection for the culture surrounding law enforcement can be seen throughout his work. 

Ayer joined the United States Navy, where he served as sonar man aboard a nuclear attack submarine during the Cold War. After an honorable discharge, Ayer began writing. He wrote and was a co-producer on his “calling card” spec script Training Day, which became a hit film and garnered Denzel Washington an Academy Award for Best Actor.

Ayer also co-wrote the submarine thriller U-571, »

Directors' Trademarks: David Ayer

14 October 2014 1:12 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

At least once a month, Cinelinx will chose one director for an in-depth examination of the “signatures” that they leave behind in their work. With the release of Fury this week, let’s examine the trademark style and calling signs of David Ayer as director.

David Ayer began his movie career as a writer, recalling on his experiences in the Navy to write the script for U-571. He worked on several other scripts, including The Fast and The Furious, and Training Day. His feature debut as director was 2005’s Harsh Times, which wasn’t well received. His follow-up was Street Kings (2008), which featured a number of big-name actors, yet didn’t receive too much attention from audiences or critics. End of Watch (2012) is his most successful film to date. It was highly regarded by critics and fit in well with his style and proficiencies as a filmmaker. Ayer got a »

Video: Brad Pitt and his band of brothers roll in 'Fury' trailer

25 June 2014 6:19 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

David Ayer co-wrote the underrated Matthew McConaughey World War II submarine movie U-571, and he also wrote and directed the pitch-perfect brothers-in-arms cop drama End of Watch. The first trailer for Fury, his WWII tank movie, looks to bottle elements from both, as Brad Pitt leads a gritty Sherman-tank crew into Germany to help end the war in April 1945. But as Pitt’s Sgt. Collier says in the trailer, “The dying’s not done. The killing’s not done.”

Pitt’s crew—which includes Michael Pena, Shia Labeouf, Jon Bernthal, and Logan Lerman—soon finds itself in over its head against staunch German resistance, »

TV Review: ‘The Last Ship’

19 June 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Wedding military hardware and a martial mind-set to paranoia about global pandemics, “The Last Ship” is an odd duck — a post-apocalyptic tale with a glimmer of hope, tonally similar to (if not as good as) the late, lamented “Jericho.” It’s left to a hardy naval crew and one inordinately beautiful scientist try to save humanity, without knowing exactly what’s left of it to save. Eric Dane is firmly in square-jawed John Wayne territory as the ship’s captain, on a TNT summer drama with plenty of possibilities but also numerous pitfalls as it seeks to navigate rather treacherous narrative currents.

The USS Nathan James has been off in the Arctic and out of radio contact while a devastating “virus of unknown origin” has decimated humanity. But it turns out the ship was on a secret mission, hosting a paleomicrobiologist (no, really, look it up), Dr. Rachel Scott (Rhona Mitra »

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Sabotage Gets A Hardcore New Red Band Trailer

7 February 2014 12:47 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Filmmaker David Ayer definitely has a thing for telling stories about law enforcement. While his career began writing the 2000 submarine drama U-571, his career since has exclusively filled with cop movies like Training Day, The Fast and the Furious, Dark Blue, S.W.A.T., Harsh Times and End of Watch. He'll finally be breaking this pattern later this year with the release of Fury, his passion project about a tank crew serving in World War II, but before that he'll be departing the genre with a bang, dropping the new film Sabotage - which has just released a brand new extended red band trailer over on IGN. Co-written by Ayer and X-Men Origins: Wolverine/A Good Day To Die Hard screenwriter Skip Woods (uh oh), the new movie follows the members of an elite DEA task force who not only have an exceptional work record together, but have bonded »

Can historically inaccurate movies still win Oscars?

30 January 2014 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Most of this year's Oscar contenders are based on historical events – and there are academics waiting to pounce on every slip-up and blunder. But there is more to a great movie than getting the facts straight

• Top 10 biopics

Alex von Tunzelmann's Reel History series

It's Oscars time again, and this year many of the big contenders have one thing in common. Two thirds of the contenders for best film are based on historical events. History also picks up four out of five best actor nominations, two out of five best actresses, and three out of five directors. So fierce has the competition among historical films become that it was reported that academic "history assassins" were paid handsomely by marketing consultants to spot errors in other studios' films. These errors would then be filtered out subtly through blogs, undermining rivals' Oscar hopes.

The Hey U Guys Instant Watching Guide – January 27th 2014

27 January 2014 5:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

 

This week’s best new releases on all the Instant Watching platforms.

Spring Breakers (2013)

Harmony Korine’s critical darling from last year is likely to be talked about and discussed for a good long while yet. Holding up an uncomfortable mirror to our youth, Spring Breakers works on a lot of levels not only does it work as a surface level tale of four out of control girls on a debauched trip in Florida but it also works as a story about the spiritual death and rebirth of Generation Y and asks some important questions about how post war culture evolved into something where our youth think licking power tools in music videos is something to aspire to.

There is a scene fairly early on where the two most rebellious of our heroines sit in class discussing oral sex on paper as their tutor drones on about world war two, »
