Why You Shouldn't Care About The 2012 Oscar Nominations

Learn why you shouldn't care about the 2013 Oscar nominations.

In a year that produced the best stock of films in recent memory, one would think the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) would have recognized this and rewarded us with a similarly diverse group of candidates. Sadly, this 'professional honorary organization' that shrugged off Elizabeth in 1998 and Star Wars in 1977 have done it again, and in doing so damaging their credibility and alienating audiences. Filling the nominations with unrecognizable films - Amour and Beasts of the Southern Wild - and the overrated Silver Linings Playbook, Hollywood has proven once again its complete lack of connection with its customers.


Here's our main beefs:


Silver Linings Playbook and The Life of Pi: While we gave SLP a passable review, it certainly didn't garner our attention in any category. Viewed as more of a date film, the dramedy starring Bradley Cooper stole quality spots from better films like M…

Jurassic Park 4 Set For 2014

Universal Pictures has set a release date for Jurassic Park 4, which will be shot in 3D and come out June 13, 2014. Steven Spielberg is returning to produce the next installment of the franchise, the last of which came out in July 2001. This comes after the studio has made plans to rerelease the original Jurassic Park in a remastered 3D version in April. Spielberg, whose latest film Lincoln was just nominated for 12 Oscars, this week put his sci-fi pic Robopocalypse on hold; he was scheduled to direct that this spring, but had a new take on the project and decided to retool. There had been speculation that Spielberg would tackle the widely rumored Moses epic Gods And Kings, but this project appears to be officially on his front burner.

Step Up 5 Is Dancing It's Way To Theaters

Get ready for another installment of Step Up, the under the radar franchise that continues to do strong business, particularly overseas. Summit Entertainment has just set John Swetnam to write the script for a film that has Scott Speer returning to direct and Offspring partners Jennifer Gibgot and Adam Shankman producing.

Step Up 5 will build to a big dance-off and the intention is to get the leads of the previous films to return in cameo roles. There’s no telling whether the biggest star to emerge from the series, Channing Tatum, will be among those. But he must have good memories. The 2006 original film helped launch Tatum’s career, and he married his lead actress and dance partner in the film, Jenna Dewan. Step Up 5 is intended to be a 3D effort.

Swetnam wrote the scripts for Evidence and the upcoming Black Sky (previously known as Category 6), and he’s also scripting a hush hush project at New Line. Swetnam is repped by Paradigm and Benderspink.

DEAD MAN DOWN Poster Has Dropped

MTV got their hands on this exclusive poster for DEAD MAN DOWN.

Since they worked together on the original version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, star Noomi Rapace has seen her career spark in Hollywood, while director Niels Arden Oplev has mostly worked on TV projects and developing other movies. Now they’ve reunited – and pulled in Colin Farrell and Terrence Howard – for revenge thriller DEAD MAN DOWN, which has just put its first trailer online.

Farrell plays Victor, the right hand man to an underground New York crime lord (Howard). When he’s spotted killing on the job by Rapace’s damaged Beatrice, she reaches out to him.

See, she’s been the victim of one of Howard’s actions and she’s burning with vengeance. So she blackmails Victor (who has his own reasons to be angry with Howard) and has him start to take down his boss’s operations. Which naturally leads to more trouble than either of them expect…

GANGSTER SQUAD Review. It's That Good!

GANGSTER SQUAD Review By: MattInRC
Does GANGSTER SQUAD cut the mustard as a 1940's crime thriller, or does it get lost in martinis and swing music?

I really enjoy well-done gangster flicks. From The Untouchables to LA Confidential, modern tales of classic mob bosses who 'clip and fence' their way to top - and the cops who take them down - provide a fascinating commentary on one of the most violent periods in American history. Luckily, GANGSTER SQUAD can join that list of able-bodied films. It's smart, a little funny, well-written and directed, and features some of the best performances of the year. Granted it's only January, but Gangster Squad is that good.


Set in 1949 Los Angeles, Squad follows mob boss Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn, At Close Range) as he attempts to gain control of the city. A former championship boxer, Cohen uses brutal tactics to expand his territory while fending off bosses from Chicago. To him, it's just another bout to be fought: he's …

DISNEY & DREAMWORKS OSCAR NOMINATED Directors and Actors React

Today we have some of the reactions from DISNEY & DREAMWORKS OSCAR NOMINATED Directors and Actors.

Tim Burton – Frankenweenie 

"Frankenweenie is a very personal film for me. The idea of telling a feature length version was in the back of my mind for many years. Stop Motion was the perfect medium for this project, and one I've always loved for its expressiveness and dimensionality. I've worked with so many incredible artists: animators, cast members, set builders, and puppet makers, all who have helped bring this film to life one frame at a time. I'm so honored that the Academy has recognized this film as one of its nominees."11

Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy – Lincoln 

“We are absolutely thrilled and astonished with the 12 nominations. It is such a tribute to the work of those who joined us in this 12-year journey to bring LINCOLN to the screen. We humbly thank the Academy members who honored so many of us.”

Sally Field – Lincoln 

“I'm spinning a…

Tina Fey Joins The Muppets Sequel

Days before she co-hosts the Golden Globes, Tina Fey is in late-stage negotiations to star as the female lead in Disney’s sequel to The Muppets, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

Fey would join Ricky Gervais as the human stars of the movie, which sees the felt-and-fur-lined puppets engaged in a European-set adventure. Modern Family star Ty Burrell also has a leading role.

The script is being kept secret, but the character descriptions point to a caper. Burrell, as first revealed by THR, is playing a lazy Interpol inspector. If a deal is finalized, sources say Fey would play a Russian gulag prison guard. James Bobin, who directed 2011's The Muppets, is back as helmer and co-wrote the screenplay with Nicholas Stoller.

David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman, who produced Muppets, also are back to produce the sequel, which will shoot in London this month.

Fey’s most recent feature role was 2010’s Date Night. She next will co-star opposite Paul Rudd in Admission, a comedy set for rel…
