Blu-ray Review: “You Will Be My Son” (“Tu Seras Mon Fils”), Directed By Gilles Legrand, From Cohen Media Group

26 November 2014 9:58 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Fred Blosser

Stories about domineering fathers and neglected offspring are at least as old as the Bible and Shakespeare.  Gilles Legrand’s “You Will Be My Son” (2012) is a worthy addition to the genre.

Paul de Marseul (Niels Arestrup) is distressed to learn that his friend Francois Amelot (Patrick Chesnais) has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Paul is the wealthy owner of a French vineyard, and Francois has served for more than 30 years as his estate manager: “a fancy name for winemaker,” Francois comments. When Francois announces that he’s too weak from his illness to begin the new production season, Paul’s son Martin (Lorant Deutsch) steps up, eager to take on the responsibility. He handles sales for the company, and he knows Francois’ routine through years of observation. But Paul has no faith in Martin’s abilities as a vintner, and the two men moreover have a strained personal relationship. »

Five reasons why we love Benedict Cumberbatch

25 November 2014 3:47 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Narrowing down the talents and charms of one Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch to just five is no easy task. Though it may seem like the 38-year-old Brit actor has only recently come on the scene, thanks to his sit-up-and-take-notice, pitch-perfect performance as Sherlock Holmes, dedicated fans know better. Though he's undoubtedly experiencing the kind of golden moment most actors would gladly give their right arm (and possibly a leg) for, the London-born, recently engaged thesp has been a jobbing actor for more than a decade and a critically-acclaimed one for almost as long.

From his BAFTA-nominated performances in "Hawking" (2004) and "Small Island" (2009), to charismatic but smaller turns in Starter For 10 (2006) and Atonement (2007), Cumberbatch was already making a name for himself before he was approached to audition for the titular role in Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss's modern BBC look at Conan Doyle's famous detective.

17 things you never knew about The Hunger Games

22 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The beginning of the end is nigh for Hunger Games fans – Mockingjay: Part 1 is out in cinemas now, and for our money it's the best in the series yet.

Fans of Suzanne Collins' book trilogy and the Lionsgate adaptations are about as dedicated as they come, as we discovered earlier this month at the film's world premiere in London.

But we've set ourselves the challenge of uncovering a few tidbits that might not be widely known. Below are 17 things you probably never knew about The Hunger Games.

1. The three-fingered salute has become iconic for Hunger Games fans, first seen as a gesture of solidarity in District 12 and later adopted by Katniss as a revolutionary gesture. But its significance reached new levels this year when the salute was adopted as a form of silent resistance by protestors in Thailand this year, and subsequently banned by the military.

The Rise Of Benedict Cumberbatch: 5 Key Early Performances Before 'The Imitation Game' & 'Sherlock'

20 November 2014 10:25 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Benedict Cumberbatch began to take Hollywood by storm as no other debonair Englishman has done since the early days of Ralph Fiennes, around 2010, when he landed the title role in BBC's modern take on "Sherlock." The following year, he started a string of memorable supporting roles with "Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy" and "War Horse," and in the year after that he turned critics' heads with an Emmy-nominated turn in "Parade's End." That was two years ago, and since then he's been in five feature films (including "Star Trek Into Darkness" as every Trekkie's favorite villain, Khan) and lent his multi-million-dollar-worth vocal chords to a number of projects (including Peter Jackson's ‘Hobbit’ trilogy as every Tolkienite's favorite dragon, Smaug). And that's not all. He has a walloping nine projects in development, including the third season of "Sherlock," and a venture into yet another cherished universe as every Marvel fans »

Benedict Cumberbatch Does Impressions of Hiddleston, McConaughey, and More

13 November 2014 5:42 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Benedict Cumberbatch has been known to do an Alan Rickman impression on occasion, and previously did an embarrassingly accurate Jar Jar Binks voice. Tom Hiddleston, on the other hand, is quite well known for busting out countless celebrity impressions whenever he makes the press and talk show rounds. In this interview Cumberbatch did with MTV, he gives his War Horse co-star a run for his money, doing as many imitations as possible in 60-seconds in order to promote his new film The Imitation Game. During the 60-seconds he does an impression of Hiddleston, as well as John Malkovich, Sean Connery, Jack Nicholson, Owen Wilson, Michael Caine, Matthew McConaughey, Taylor Swift, and more.

Below the video of Cumberbatch, I’ve also embedded a small compilation of Hiddleston doing numerous impressions. You can watch both videos and let us know which remarkably suave and debonair Brit you think does better impressions. I'd »

Tech Support: 'Budapest,' 'Into the Woods,' 'Exodus' highlight Best Production Design

13 November 2014 12:58 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Grandeur often rules the day in Best Production Design, which awards the men and women responsible for a movie's set design and construction. The category typically favors period pieces, though at least one fantasy title tends to find a home every year. It is rare for truly contemporary films to be nominated. However, the category is more open to fantasy and contemporary pieces than its cousin Best Costume Design. (Last year was the first year the costume designers had their own branch, but no easily discernible new trends could be observed in my opinion.) Recent years have also suggested openness to CGI-complemented work ("Life of Pi" and "Gravity" immediately jump to mind). On that note, it's worth mentioning that the Art Directors Guild has implemented a new rule somewhat under the radar for its precursor awards this season. According to the new provision, period films must now have the majority »
