    'Fifty Shades Of Grey' Movie: Charlie Hunnam Gets Christian Grey Role
    'Fifty Shades Of Grey' Movie Casts Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele

    So...this either goes down a la 9 1/2 Weeks and becomes a cheesy hit, or it is a total fail...I think it being actually GOOD is impossible based on the source material. This could be make or break for ol Jax. Pretty bold move. I think the fact that it is being directed by a woman might critic proof it a little bit but yeah I can see the reviews being savage for this one even before the flick comes out. Good luck.

    Venice Review: Alexandros Avranas' Extraordinary, Shocking 'Miss Violence' | The Playlist

    It might be hard to be believe, but the film pushes boundaries even further than its progenitors. Two scenes in particular late on left audiences gasping, and risk being seen as exploitative. We think that they were just about justified—asking questions about what is the breaking point, underlined by the very ending—but they may well be moments at which many audiences are left behind.

    Those for whom the film isn't spoiled, however, will be left with one of the most powerful experiences we've had in a theater for a long time. On the back of a brace of impeccable performances—Panou's complex, brutish, but not unloving father figure looks to be a frontrunner for Best Actor here in Venice, while Rossinou's Stepfordish mask hiding an innocence she was never allowed to hang on to for long is particularly memorable—Avranas makes a claim to be considered among the top ranks of international filmmakers. If enough people can stomach the film, anyway... [A-]

    Oscar Bait Alert

    Ron Howards Rush could shift into high gear this Oscar season

    Yeah, this is picking up a huge head of steam. Even I am interested in it. Love the look that Ron Howard(more likely his cinematographer) went with, if you've seen the clips the film seems to have a really nice 'long ago' look to it. Word of mouth is coming in pretty strong too. Seems like the kind of flick Academy voters can get behind and Ron Howard's rep can't hurt either.

    Review: Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton shine in Jim Jarmuschs moody Only Lovers Left Alive

    The way Jarmusch portrays the lives they lead, he's obviously interested in what day to day immortality would feel like and what it would do to someone, both emotionally and spiritually. Adam seems to be wishing his time would end, while Eve takes whatever sensual and tactile pleasures she can from the small things, like dancing. Adam has only one real connection to the outside world, a young local guy named Ian (Anton Yelchin), and other than that, he seems happy to hide from the world, writing and recording music that is for him, that's not really meant for an audience. Hiddleston seems perfectly suited for this role, and he pulls off that particular Jarmusch trick of delivering some great laugh lines without ever telegraphing a joke or dropping the morose exterior. If they ever get around to turning Neil Gaiman's "Sandman" into a film, Hiddleston is the only man for the job at this point, and Adam appears to have stepped out of the pages of that book.

    Sounds interesting, a newish take on Vampires and the staggering reality of immortal life...I'm in. And yeah, never thought about it, but Hiddleston as Sandman is spot the f'on.

    ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE Review. ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE Stars Tom Hiddleston | Collider

    Like all good Jarmusch ventures, the whole viewing experience is like a trance. A slow ride through rotting Detroit and blood-suckling nocturnal activities that’s hard to tear your eyes from. It may not have been an obvious combination of filmmaker and subject matter, but it is an oddly perfect one. Following the somewhat lost Jarmusch who made The Limits of Control, it’s nice just to know that he can still command a narrative when the material suits his style. As always, if you hate Jarmusch there’s no point in applying, but those who love his unique deadpan work this is the most satisfying flick that he’s made in quite sometime. Hopefully it won’t be his last.

    Grade: A

    Review: Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl both shine in Ron Howards dynamic racing drama Rush

    Anthony Dod Mantle's cinematography is fantastic here. I may not be a Formula 1 fan, but I feel like I finally understand the appeal. The film is cut brilliantly by Daniel Hanley and Mike Hill, and Mark Digby's production design evokes the '70s without wallowing in them. Hans Zimmer's score supports the film beautifully, all dynamics and tension. This might be the most technically complicated and most polished film that Howard has ever made. If you're a fan of racing at all, or if you just want to see a great story about what drives people past the point where most of us would break, "Rush" is powerful storytelling, and a real high watermark for Ron Howard.

    Telling you, in what looks to be a crowded field, this could be a BIIIIIIIG winner come Oscar time. Release date may hurt it(too early) and it will have to have a strong Box Office, but the word of mouth is terrific, all starting with 'I don't care about racing...BUT...'

    TIFF Review: ‘Rush’ Starring Chris Hemsworth & Daniel Brühl Finds Ron Howard In Top Gear

    "Rush" is a pretty thrilling piece of pop entertainment. It's excitingly assembled and moves like a bullet, highly engaging and nerve-wracking when it needs to be and light on its feet elsewhere. But outside of its in-the-moment pleasures, its story about two men who inspire greatness and need one another to achieve their highest aspirations gives it a substantive backbone that makes the film all the more satisfying. Slick, quick and rousing, "Rush" is like making a hairpin turn at hundreds of miles per hour just in time to cross the finish line in first place. [B+]
