Tom Hiddleston Soars With a Busy Career, Smart Fan Base and Daring Choices

19 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In the space of one month Tom Hiddleston can be seen as a legendary crooner, a suave British spy and the tenant of a high-tech building who spirals into madness. “I’ve been working nonstop for two years, and there’s a compression of those last two years into one month,” he says. “But in an industry that’s feast or famine, I’ve got no complaints.”

For now, it’s full-on feast for the actor, who has already established a wide fan base not just for his films, but his charm – he always seems to be having the best time, whether making a surprise appearance at Comic-Con or singing with Stephen Colbert. In addition to the miniseries “The Night Manager” on AMC, the actor can be seen in theaters in “I Saw the Light,” Marc Abraham’s faithful biopic of Hank Williams. Later this month, he’ll head an »

Bridge of Spies; Tangerine; Horse Money; The Night Before; My Beautiful Broken Brain – review

27 March 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Mark Rylance’s Russian spy is worthy of an Oscar, while Sean Baker’s snapshot of La’s underclass, filmed on an iPhone, oozes attitude

Just as many of us, for all our rebellious inclinations to the contrary, eventually morph into versions of our parents, so has Steven Spielberg – brash movie brat of the 1970s, inventor of the blockbuster – begun to emulate the golden age classicists who preceded him. The muscular, arrow-backed John Ford-isms that felt a little strained in War Horse and Lincoln, however, reach more satisfying fruition (and join sprightly nudges to Hawks and Hitchcock) in Bridge of Spies (Fox, 12), a rare feelgood cold war thriller that roars and rouses in most of the right places, though not necessarily the obvious ones.

Liberally based on the story of James Donovan, an American insurance lawyer improbably recruited as a go-between in Us-Soviet Pow negotiations, it’s a more terse, »

How does Tom Hiddleston, an Oxbridge man who went to Eton with Prince William, score a role playing Hank Williams, the twangy legend of the Nashville's Grand ole Opry?

Corin Hardy

Out now to download The Hallow is one of the best horror films of 2015 that you probably didn’t see.

Best Picture and Better Picture: Movies That Should Have Won the Oscar but Didn’t

19 February 2016 3:34 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 The best picture doesn’t always win Best Picture. Sometimes the best film of the year gets robbed. Cinelinx looks at the movies which should have won Best Picture but didn’t.

Whenever the Best Picture winner is announced at the Oscars, sometimes we say, “Yeah, that deserved to win,” but then again, sometimes we say, “Huh? Are they kidding me?!” There are a lot of backstage politics and extenuating factors in Hollywood that can determine which film wins the big trophy. The worthiest film doesn’t always take the statue home. Going back over the 88-year history of the Academy Awards, we look at which films didn’t really deserve to win and the ones which rightfully should have won.

The Best Pictures and the Better Pictures:

Spielberg's Best Pictures and New DVDs

2 February 2016 12:30 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Time to check in to see which movies we all can check back in with or catch up with now that they've hit the home market. The big title, Oscar wise is Steven Spielberg's 10th Best Picture nominee as a director, the cold war drama Bridge of Spies with Tom Hanks and Mark Rylance both doing fine work as a lawyer and the spy he must bargain with for a prisoner of war trade. Only one of Spielberg's directorial efforts has ever won Best Picture (Schindler's List, 1993) but which is your favorite? I'd rank them like so...

Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) Schindler's List (1993) Jaws (1975) E.T. The Extra Terrestrial (1982) Lincoln (2012) The Color Purple (1985) Bridge of Spies (2015) Saving Private Ryan (1998) Munich (2005) War Horse (2011)

With the disclaimer that everyone knows I'm not a Spielberg aficionado really (the top three are the only ones I'm completely wild about from this list »
