Oscars: Olivia Colman Will Compete in Best Actress for ‘The Favourite’ as Acting Races Get Clarified
When it comes to predicting the Oscars, one of the major hurdles early in the season is figuring out in which categories some of the actors will be competing.

Peter Jackson’s Stunning Documentary ‘They Shall Not Grow Old’ Brings World War I Into 3D [Lff Review]

It’s been a funny old decade and a half for Peter Jackson. After the critical, commercial, and awards triumphs of the “Lord of The Rings” trilogy — a blockbuster the lasting impact of which is as big as anything since “Star Wars” — he had the world at his feet. But, perhaps inevitably, given how entirely massive his initial Middle-Earth films were, his follow-ups since have struggled to get the same amount of love.

Revisiting ‘What Lies Beneath’, Robert Zemeckis’ Forgotten Alfred Hitchock Riff
What Lies Beneath is a film I really didn’t like when I saw it upon its release in 2000. As a fan of Robert Zemeckis, I was looking forward to him taking on a Hitchcockian thriller with a cast top-lined by Harrison Ford and Michelle Pfeiffer. And when I left the theatre that first time, […]

Keira Knightley Banned Her Daughter From Watching Disney Films Like ‘Cinderella’ Because They’re Not Empowering to Women
Cinderella” and “The Little Mermaid” are Disney animated classics beloved by adults and children all over the world, but that isn’t stopping Keira Knightley from banning the titles in her house. The actress told Ellen Degeneres during an appearance on her talk show that she isn’t letting her three-year-old daughter watch certain Disney princess films because they are not empowering to women.

When it comes to “Cinderella,” Knightley explained the storyline just doesn’t set a good example for young women. “She waits around for a rich guy to rescue her,” Knightley said. “Don’t. Rescue yourself — obviously.” The actress feels the same about “The Little Mermaid,” even if she admits the songs are good. “Do not give your voice up for a man!” Knightley noted.

Knightley got her career breakthrough thanks to Disney by starring as Elizabeth Swann in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise. Although the

‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ Featurette Dives into the Sequel’s Plot

Warner Bros. has released a new featurette for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald that goes deeper into the film’s plot. While we previously knew that the conflict would revolve around Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) escaping and Dumbledore (Jude Law) recruiting Newt (Eddie Redmayne) to take down the dark wizard. However, this featurette reveals that part of Grindelwald’s plan involves Credence (Ezra Miller), who displayed incredible power in the first Fantastic Beasts movie. Watching the featurette, I’ve become pretty steadfast in my belief that this is a make-or-break entry for the franchise. Even though it will …

Richard Linklater’s New Ad Questions Ted Cruz’s Love of Texas Because of His Odd Fast Food Choices — Watch

Richard Linklater’s New Ad Questions Ted Cruz’s Love of Texas Because of His Odd Fast Food Choices — Watch
Richard Linklater isn’t letting Ted Cruz off the hook. On the heels of an October 8 advertisement in which Linklater questioned whether or not Cruz was “tough as Texas,” as his political slogan claims, the director has released a second anti-Cruz political ad on behalf of the Fire Ted Cruz Pac that asks whether or not Cruz truly loves Texas or not. Texas senator Cruz is seeking re-election this November against Democrat Beto O’Rourke.

Cruz dissed O’Rourke earlier this year by referring to the democrat as a “Triple Meat Whataburger liberal who is out of touch with Texas values.” O’Rourke responded by taking a video of himself ordering food at a Texas Whataburger following a September debate against Cruz. Linklater’s new ad, once again starring his “Bernie” actor Sonny Carl Davis, plays directly into the feud.

“Everybody I know in Texas likes Whataburger,” Sonny says in the ad.
