Robin's 'F**k Batman' Titans Trailer

2017 Oscar Nominations Have Been Announced

Better get your tux to a dry cleaners, pronto – it’s Oscar time again. The nominees for the 89th annual Academy Awards have been announced, and as expected, razzle-dazzle old-school musical La La Land has come out on top with a record-equaling 14 nominations. Hot on its toe-tapping heels are cerebral alien sci-fi Arrival and generational urban drama Moonlight, which both earned six nominations apiece.

There were nine Best Picture nominations this year – a category that can be anywhere from five to ten – with a diverse list that included a Western (Hell Or High Water), a war movie (Hacksaw Ridge), a sci-fi (Arrival).

Perhaps in response to last year’s #OscarsSoWhite controversy, there was plenty of recognition for films with non-white casts or stories, most notably Moonlight, Hidden Figures and Fences.

During a characteristically chin-scratching pre-recorded announcement video (never let it be said the Academy doesn’t know how to string something out) a series of previous winners were recruited to introduce the nominees, interspersed with anecdotes of winning the awards.

One notable snub was for Amy Adams, hotly tipped to pick up a nomination for either Arrival or Nocturnal Animals, and after five previous nominations with no win, is surely due a Leonardo DiCaprio-style coronation. Another surprise was Michael Shannon picking up a Best Supporting Actor nod, after his co-star in the same film, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, was recognised in the Golden Globes.

Meanwhile, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story repeated The Force Awakens' trick by picking up a few nods in the technical categories, which also bestowed unlikely recognition on blockbuster fare like Suicide Squad and Passengers.

The winners will be announced in a typically glitzy ceremony presented by Jimmy Kimmel at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre on 26 February. See you at the dry cleaners.

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See WARCRAFT In Dallas

Enter for a chance to see WARCRAFT on June 7th at 7:00 PM in Dallas.

From Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures comes Warcraft, an epic adventure of world-colliding conflict based on Blizzard Entertainment's global phenomenon.


The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: Orc warriors fleeing their dying home to colonize another. As a portal opens to connect the two worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces extinction. From opposing sides, two heroes are set on a collision course that will decide the fate of their family, their people and their home.

So begins a spectacular saga of power and sacrifice in which war has many faces, and everyone fights for something.


Directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) and written by Charles Leavitt and Jones, the film starring Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Ben Schnetzer, Rob Kazinsky and Daniel Wu is a Legendary Pic…
