Second Opinion – The Homesman (2014)

5 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Homesman (2014)

Directed by Tommy Lee Jones

Starring Tommy Lee JonesHilary Swank, Grace Gummer, Miranda Otto, Sonja Richter, John Lithgow, Hailee Steinfield, Jesse Plemons, Tim Blake Nelson, William Fitchner, Meryl Streep

Synopsis:

Ably independent yet desperate to nurture a family, Mary Bee Cuddy agrees to transport three women maddened by trauma across the country, enlisting the help of an aged, stubborn drifter along the way.

Despite what Tommy Lee Jones might want you to think, his new film, The Homesman, is definitely a western.  And thank goodness, for the genre has been sorely lacking in reinforcements in recent years.  It’s long been a favourite genre of mine, from Peckinpah to The Coen Brothers, Leone to Tarantino, but if you were to sieve through, say, the last ten years for decent entries (excluding hybrids like Cowboys & Aliens or an Aussie western like The Proposition), what have you got?  True Grit? »

Ransom: a darker thriller than it gets credit for?

29 August 2014 2:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mel Gibson took on a big movie star role with Ransom. We take a look back at Ron Howard's 1996 thriller...

If you were a regular cinemagoer around 1996, then you can't help but have seen the trailer for Ron Howard's Ransom. Inevitably, time has dampened its impact a little but it was a promo that quite superbly sold the film (which would go on to take more than $300m at the box office worldwide). At first glance a tale of a rich man whose son is kidnapped, the trailer showed how the tables were to be turned: instead of the ransom money being handed over to the kidnappers, Gibson's character offered it as a bounty on the kidnappers' heads instead. The hunt is then turned around, quite cleverly.

Watching Ransom at the time, I always thought that the film, whilst not without merit, never fully delivered on that idea. »

Cannes 2014: The Homesman Review

19 May 2014 7:20 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Based on a novel by Glendon Swarthout, Tommy Lee JonesThe Homesman is set in the 1850s American mid-West, and follows the journey of George Briggs (Jones) and Mary Bee Cuddy (Hilary Swank) as they head east with three women in tow. These three women have been driven mad by the harshness of their lives, by bereavement and by heartbreak.

Mary Bee is a God-fearing woman who has a homestead as neat as a pin, money in the bank and plans for the future. What she lacks is a companion to share all of this, but when she openly courts her neighbour, he turns her proposal down because: “You’re plain as a pail and you’re bossy”. This bossy and single woman volunteers to take her three demented neighbours back to more civilised climes when the men are far from willing to step up. Coming across Griggs with a noose around his neck, »

Welcome back to Cannes Check, In Contention's annual preview of the films in Competition at this year's Cannes Film Festival, which kicks off on May 14.

List of 2014 Oscar Winners!

3 March 2014 11:30 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The 86th annual Academy Awards were really fun to watch. Ellen Degeneres did a fantastic job hosting, and I enjoyed the show she put on. It was also insanely predictable, at least, for me it was. Overall, I'm happy with all of the films that won. My favorite win of the the night was Spike Jonze taking home the Oscar for Best Original screenplay for Her. That was such an amazing movie, and I really wanted it to win that award, but I wasn't sure it would happen. My favorite speech of the night came from Best Actor winner Matthew McConaughey. I was never really a big fan of his, but over the last couple of years he has sure blown up into an amazing actor who has starred in some really incredible films. Then that speech he gave last night won me over, and now I'm on team McConaughey. »

Hard-hitting slavery drama starring Chiwetel Ejiofor becomes first film from black director to win top Academy award

• How the night unfolded

• Full list of winners

12 Years a Slave has won the best picture Oscar at the 86th Academy Awards, defeating a nine-strong field that included Gravity, The Wolf of Wall Street and American Hustle for the headline prize at this year's ceremony. 12 Years a Slave becomes the first film from a black director to take the best picture Oscar.

Directed by Steve McQueen, the landmark slavery drama stars Chiwetel Ejiofor as a free man kidnapped and sold to slaveowners in 19th-century Louisiana. It was based on the bestselling memoir by Solomon Northup, first published in 1853. 12 Years a Slave follows McQueen's award-winning dramas Hunger and Shame, and was produced by among others Brad Pitt's Plan B outfit. Pitt also takes a small but pivotal role as abolitionist carpenter Samuel Bass. »

Gravity Wins 7 Academy Awards; 12 Years A Slave Takes Best Picture – 86th Oscars

2 March 2014 9:29 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

After a lengthy awards season that lasted three long months, the race for the Oscars came to a conclusion tonight at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

This year’s 86th Academy Awards saw a split between Best Picture and Director. 12 Years A Slave won three, including Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress for Lupita Nyong’o.

Backstage, producer/actor Brad Pitt said, “ I love this movie.  I ‑‑ just as a film, as a lover of film, the filmmaking, the ‑‑ this heroic story of a man in this inhumane situation trying to get back to his family.  I love this film.  I love the filmmaking.  It’s counterintuitive to the way we’re making films today.  It’s a real achievement by Mr. McQueen here.  I love this movie.  I think it’s important.  I think it’s important because it deals with our history that we haven »

2014 Oscars Winners: '12 Years a Slave' Takes Best Picture

2 March 2014 8:56 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The 2014 Oscar Awards have been handed out and it to no real surprise... there were few surprises as 12 Years a Slave took home Best Picture as well as Best Supporting Actress (Lupita Nyong'o) and Best Adapted Screenplay (John Ridley) while Gravity, unsurprisingly, ended up taking home the night's largest number of wins with seven, none bigger than a Best Director win for Alfonso Cuaron. In the acting categories the only category that seemed up for grabs was Supporting Actress, but as I said, that went to Lupita, which may have something to do with Jennifer Lawrence wearing red... I learned on E! that no one wearing red has ever won the Oscar. Yeah, that's hard-hitting journalism right there. Dallas Buyers Club co-stars Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto won Best Actor and Supporting Actor respectively while Cate Blanchett took home her second Oscar, winning Best Actress for Blue Jasmine.
