Review: With 'Maps To The Stars' Cronenberg Is Back In Fine Form
After what seemed like a slew of disappointing flicks either going for Oscar grabs (see, or rather don’t see, the unwatchable "A Dangerous Method!") or filled with no meaning (don’t know which was more drab "Cosmopolis" or its star Robert Pattinson!) it’s nice to finally have the true David Cronenberg back in fine form. His old school morbid style matched with writer Bruce Wagner’s biting screenplay and featuring some arresting performances makes his latest outing "Maps To The Stars" a wonderfully wacky piece of wild abandon cinema – welcome back David.

The film is about two worlds in mod...

His PR firm London's PublicEye firm then followed up with a statement that read: "Jamie is delighted that the film i...

The Real Reasons Why Eddie Redmayne Won An Oscar For Best Actor
Eddie Redmayne seemed to walk away with the 2015 Oscar for Best Actor in a Motion Picture for his stellar performance as Stephen Hawking in "The Theory of Everything."

Still, Redmayne was up against some stiff competition in Michael Keaton ("Birdman"), Steve Carell ("Foxcatcher"), Bradley Cooper ("American Sniper") and Benedict Cumberbatch ("The Imitation Game"). So what were the key reasons why he won?

He Played A Real Person, Not A Character

Most Oscar winners who take home the gold in this category play a version of a real-life story. Just last year, Matthew McConaughey won for his po...

'VANish' Star Tony 'Candyman' Todd Gives Insight On His Amazing Career!

February 24th, 2015 12:20pm EST
TT
Sometimes the hardest job for an actor immediately associated with a single standout character is to move past such a notorious notable and keep working. Fortunately for character actor Tony Todd, who is of course most recognized for his arresting work as former slave Daniel Robitaille turned hook wielding legend "Candyman," it’s truly been a success story. Having done some seriously stellar work both before (see "Platoon," "Lean On Me" and the Tom Savini version of "Night of the Living Dead" to name a few) and after ("The Crow," "The Rock" and of course the "Final Destination" films!) th...

Why Did Alejandro G. Iñárritu Deserve To Win Best Director?

February 23rd, 2015 8:30pm EST
Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu
In his second career Oscar nomination for Best Director, Alejandro G. Iñárritu took home the gold for “Birdman” (as well as two more wins, for Best Picture and Original Screenplay). Here is how he pulled it off:

1. The “One Shot” Trick
Coverage of “Birdman” has already discussed this feature to death, but it bears repeating: the entire film was shot and edited in such a way that it appeared to be one long continuous take. There actually were several cuts throughout, but most of the shots lasted about ten minutes, which is still an intensely long duration, considering that a one-minute sh...

Top 5 Game Changing Movie Bad Guys
Throughout the vast history of hero flicks one thing remains a key ingredient to being a success – the champion of the film is only as good as his bad guy movie counterpart.

It’s these roles that we salute here – five sinister, calculated and conniving characters who dared to slip on the mask of malevolence and lovingly gave the movie world a whole new definition of bad guy.
