2014-sag-award-nominations

The Golden Globes announce their nominations tomorrow. Today, it was the Screen Actors Guild honoring the best. While the Globes earn all the headlines, the SAGs are what you need to pay attention to if you want to win your Oscar pool. By far, they have the best track record when it comes to the acting categories. With that being said, anyone not nominated today can still crash the Oscar party. There’s still a little over a month left before the Academy announce their nominations. Plenty of time to campaign SLASH suck up.

Leading the pack on the film side was 12 Years A Slave with four nods. Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o each nabbed a nomination, along with joining their fellow cast members for best ensemble. The historical epic is looking unstoppable at this point. Coming in strong in second place were both August: Osage County and Dallas Buyers Club. Both scored three nods including best ensemble. On the flip side Leonardo Dicaprio’s The Wolf of Wall Street and Robert Redford’s All Is Lost were snubbed. The former was undoubtedly hurt by late screenings and lack of screeners sent out.

On the television side, the guild rewarded both Breaking Bad and 30 Rock for their swan songs. Other notable nominations include Matt Damon and Michael Douglas for Behind The Candelabra, Homeland, Modern Family and Kerry Washington for Scandal. Check out all the honorees below. The SAG Awards ceremony will take place on Sat. Jan. 18, with a live broadcast on TBS and TNT.

Robin Thicke Rides Like The Wind With Will Ferrell

Mariah & Whitney. Celine & Barbra. Britney & Rihanna. Those pairings have given us some pretty great duets. Now, we can add Robin Thicke and Will Ferrell to that group ;) Okay not really, but it’s a fun listen nonetheless.

Ferrell in his Ron Burgundy alter ego delivers spoken word as Thicke taps into his upper register to cover Christopher Cross’ classic “Ride Like The Wind.” The collaboration is for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues which opens December 18.

Word on the street suggests an accompanying music video is also in the works. I can’t wait. Should be an equally fun ride. As an aside, I have to give Robin props. His parts sound fantastic. A solo version could’ve easily fit in on his current studio album. Check out the duet below.

First Godzilla 2014 Teaser Trailer Released

In: Donovan, Movies
godzilla-2014-movie-trailer

Just what the world needs. Another Godzilla film. Perhaps I’m bitter because I wasted two hours of my life watching Roland Emmerich’s 1998 hot mess. Godzilla was supposed to kick off a trilogy for the studio, but due to negative response and lack of enthusiasm, plans for a sequel were shelved. Fast forward to 2014 when another American studio attempts to reboot Japan’s iconic monster for North American audiences.

While I wasn’t a fan of Emmerich’s version, I have to say, director Gareth Edwards‘ first teaser trailer has me intrigued. Not much in terms of plot is revealed, but the action shots and dramatic glimpses had me in suspense. To boot, the film boasts an impressive cast which includes Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Oscar winner Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, Oscar® nominee David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston. Check out the first teaser below. Godzilla 2014 opens next year in May.

Movie Review: Geography Club

In: Calan, Movies, Totally GAY!
geography-club-movie-review

Back in October Dono did a post about the Geography Club movie trailer and it peaked my interest. Not only was it starring two very handsome men,  Cameron Deane Stewart (Pitch Perfect) and Justin Deeley (90210), but it also genuinely looked really good. I’m a bit of a gay movie junkie and love attending the VQFF every year so I’ve seen my fair share of tacky gay cinema. I’m happy to say that Geography Club was not your average cheesy bad gay movie.

Synopsis: At Goodkind High School, a group of students of varying sexual orientation form an after-school club as a discreet way to share their feelings and experiences.

From the creative minds of Lana and Andy Wachowski comes another big budget sci-fi film. Will it match the success of The Matrix trilogy? Based on first impression, it definitely has potential with its stunning visuals and even more stunning cast.

Mila Kunis plays earth-born princess Jupiter Jones. Playing her intergalactic knight in shining armor is former “Sexiest Man Alive” Channing Tatum. Originally, Caine (Tatum) was sent from another world to eliminate her, but ends up protecting her instead. Expect lots of kissy kissy in between all the action.

Douglas Booth, Eddie Redmayne, Sean Bean and James D’Arcy round out the cast. Jupiter Ascending hits theaters on July 25, 2014. Check out the trailer below, after reading the official movie synopsis.

Movie Synopsis

“Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along – her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.”

Yes, please. I’ve had a crush on Jason Momoa since his Baywatch Hawaii days. He’s only gotten better and hotter with age. Not to mention, beefier as well.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Momoa is currently in talks to join the Man of Steel sequel, tentatively titled Batman vs Superman. The casting rumor is on the heels of Israeli supermodel Gal Gadot joining the film as Wonder Woman. Find out what characters he’s being considered for below.

Much to the chagrin of contest officials, outraged parents, and overly ambitious 8th graders, 40-year-old school dropout Guy Trilby (Jason Bateman) finds himself competing against kids in a national spelling bee due to a loophole. In the midst of annihilating his competition, he forges an unlikely friendship with a 10-year-old boy named Chaitanya Chopra (Rohan Chand). The premise allows plenty of opportunity for politically inappropriate jokes, boundary pushing humor and overall crude situations. In other words… my kind of movie.

The subversive black comedy first premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. It marks the directorial debut of Bateman. Reception was positive enough that Focus Features picked it up for $7 million. Bad Words will hit theaters in limited release on March 21, 2014. Allison Janney, Phillip Baker Hall, and Kathryn Hahn round out the cast. Check out the newly-released red band trailer below.

With all the attention focused on movies this time of year, I thought I’d give some loving to programs on the small screen. Truth be told, the American Film Institute’s picks for Top 10 best films are pretty much status quo with all the recent critics awards, The only exceptions being Leonardo DiCaprio’s The Wolf of Wall Street and Tom Hanks’ Saving Mr. Banks finally entering the Oscar race. I really didn’t feel like talking about another 12 Years A Slave win ;)

On the television side, the AFI made some room in their Top 10 for new blood. Orange Is The New Black, The Americans, Masters of Sex and Scandal were just a few first-timers who made the cut. Despite being the highest-rated of the three, American Horror Story: Coven was snubbed. Also noticeably absent were Girls, Homeland and Modern Family. All of which have been included on the list since their respective freshman year. Is this the beginning of the end for the Emmy-winning ABC sitcom’s winning streak?

Based on the AFI’s mandate, below are the ten outstanding films and 10 outstanding television programs deemed culturally and artistically representative of the year’s most significant achievements in the art of the moving image. See if you agree with their list.
