DVD Giveaway – Win Hustlers starring Paul Walker

24 April 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Starring Paul Walker (Fast & Furious) in one of his final roles and featuring an incredible supporting cast including Matt Dillon (Crash), Elijah Wood (The Lord of the Rings), Brendan Fraser (The Mummy), Lucas Haas (Inception) and Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead), the black comedy Hustlers hit DVD and Blu-ray here in the UK this past Monday (April 21st), and to celebrate we’ve got a copy up for grabs courtesy of Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Read on for a synopsis and details of how to enter…

Hustlers draws comparisons with some of Quentin Tarantino’s early work, using three intertwining storylines which lead to an explosive climax.

The Shotgun (The Road To White Gold)

After Vernon pawns their shotgun for gas money, Paul Walker’s Raw Dog and his equally strung-out accomplice Randy go in search of a suitable weapon so they can rob their Meth dealer and live happily ever after. »

9 Actors Who Earned Oscar Nominations For Playing Real People And Didn’t Deserve It

17 February 2014 8:35 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

We’re less than two weeks away from the Oscars, and that means it’s once again time for my favorite activity: griping about the past!

One of my biggest Oscar pet peeves is when actors who portray real-life roles garner more attention — for no good reason — than actors who portray fictional characters. The Academy has long been too pleased with big-named thespians who prove they can imitate recognizable figures. Sometimes the attention is justified (Sean Penn in Milk and Marion Cotillard in La Vie en Rose come to mind), but often real-life roles become filler nominees in the supporting categories. Here are nine examples of Oscar-nominated performances that caught fire with the academy simply for being based on a known personality.

1. Jason Robards as Howard Hughes in Melvin and Howard

Melvin and Howard is a movie that teaches you to appreciate its examination of a Utah man’s humdrum lower-middle-class existence, »

Blanchett, McConaughey bolster Oscar chances

18 January 2014 8:27 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

The odds of Cate Blanchett winning her second Oscar look even stronger after she collected the Screen Actors Guild award on Sunday for best lead actress in Blue Jasmine.

Similarly Matthew McConaughey.s hopes of taking the best lead actor prize have improved after SAG recognised his performance in Dallas Buyers Club.

The SAG awards for Jared Leto as best supporting actor for Dallas Buyers Club and for Lupita Nyong.o as supporting actress in 12 Years A Slave won.t have dimmed either.s chance of winning gold.

Meanwhile the outstanding cast award for American Hustle is viewed by some pundits as a harbinger of that film.s prospects of taking the best picture gong, as happened last year with Argo.

.At this point it just doesn.t appear Blanchett can be beaten . and she still has BAFTA to go before the Academy opens its envelopes on March 2,. opined Deadline com.s Peter Hammond. »
