Some of the critics groups have given out their prizes already, but the race to the Oscar is just getting started. This morning Screen Actors Guild announced its list of nominees for the 2015 awards, with Birdman and House of Cards emerging as two big favorites.
For the most part they went as predicted, but there were also a few big surprises to keep us on our toes. Read the full list of 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations after the jump.
December is here, which means you’ll been seeing many articles looking back at 2014. And while you may be wondering what your favorite critics thought of some of the year’s best films, let’s be honest. You’d probably rather hear from people whose movies you love.
So let’s get that ball rolling. First up we’ve got Edgar Wright. Wright had a unique year. The director began 2014 full steam ahead getting ready to make a Marvel Studios movie, ended up leaving that project, directed a Pharrell video and has yet to officially announce his next feature, though there are multiple options for him to choose from.
In that time, one thing Wright did do was watch a lot of movies. He was a juror at Fantastic Fest. He could be regularly seen around Los Angeles seeing all the big releases, from Interstellar to Nightcrawler and others. Talking to him, you could tell he was hellbent on seeing everything. Now he’s got an accurate, well-rounded top ten list. Below, check out the Edgar Wright Top 10 2014 films. Read More »

One of the many reasons we’re thankful for Thanksgiving is that it cuts the work week short, giving us twice as much weekend time to spend at the movies. And there’s no shortage of titles right now to spend that time on. The only question is where to start.
To help you answer that, we’ve put together a helpful guide that (we hope) covers every base. Hit the jump for our list of 25 movies to watch this Thanksgiving. Read More »
David, Devindra, and Jeff follow-up their discussion of Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar and share movies they’d recommend you check out over the Thanksgiving break. Be sure to read about what is up with the ending of Birdman, how to see Interstellar unlimited times, read Christopher Nolan’s response to Interstellar’s sound issues, and speculate on why Christopher Nolan fans are so intense.
Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman is one of the most technically dazzling and thematically ambitious films of the year. With an all-star cast and some spectacular digital effects to make the film seem like it was done in one long continuous shot, Birdman is stuffed to the gills with ideas and importance. This movie doesn’t just want to make you feel something, it wants to say something about humanity and stardom and the inner lives of celebrities and the “cultural genocide” that superhero films have wrought upon us.
But what was up with that ending? Let’s explore. Massive spoilers for Birdman follow.

We’ve already seen a bunch of trailers for Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s Birdman, but as the film continues its expansion across the country the team over at Fox Searchlight are trying something a little different.
The latest Birdman promo isn’t really a Birdman promo per se, but a (fake) trailer for Birdman Returns, the 1992 superhero sequel starring Michael Keaton‘s Riggan Thomson. Watch the Birdman Returns trailer after the jump. Read More »

Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s Birdman would be a good movie if it looked traditional. It’s a great movie because the filmmaker tried something very ambitious. From the first image of the film, the whole thing is constructed to look likes it’s a long, continuous long take. An uninterrupted, two hour look at the story of Riggan (Michael Keaton) a once famous superhero actor who stages a play hoping to regain his self-respect, the respect of his family and the public.
Considering the film takes place over a few days, across multiple locations and – arguably – multiple plains of consciousness, there was no way for Iñárritu to actually shoot the movie in one take. So how did they do it? A new video has come online that shows some – but not all – of the secrets of the Birdman single shot. Read More »
