Boyhood

Oscar nominations were announced on Thursday and brought the usual flood of reactions, mainly because of notable snubs. Voters opened themselves to charges of both racism and sexism by ignoring black actors and female writers and directors. The biggest outcry was for Selma, which received a Best Picture nomination but nothing for its acclaimed cast or director Ava DuVernay.

Last week, the Hollywood power couple gave their backing, along with Pablo Almodover and other luminaries of the Spanish entertainment industry to the letter, which denounced Israel’s actions in Gaza and the resulting civilian casualties as “genocide”. In the following days, Cruz and Bardem each released a statement, clarifying their intentions.

Oh Dear, Ethan Hawke's 'Getaway' Didn't Get Away With Being a Bad Film


Ethan Hawke Jon Voight Selena Gomez

Some films aren’t appreciated in their time, and go on to become cult films. Some movies are so bad, they’re good, and people just love to hate them – a la The Room or Birdemic – but some films are just plain bad. They’re so bad, the critics are merciless, and the investable box office crash that ensues can set actors’ careers back a few years.

Getaway seems to have fallen into the latter category: an awful film that no one will actually begin to ironically like in years to come. There’s always the chance they could, but films that really try to be cool tend to get tossed on the pile labeled ‘Monte Cristo that was bad.’

Ray: Yay Or Nay? What's Being Said About Ray Donovan?


Liev Schreiber Jon Voight Ann Biderman

In new Showtime drama, Ray Donovan, Liev Schreiber (X Men Origins: Wolverine, Salt) and Paula Malcomson (Lost, The Hunger Games) play antihero Californian fixer, Ray, and his wife, making arrangements for Hollywood's rich and famous, doing a bit of dirty work as an enforcer for two entertainment lawyers, much to his wife's concern. The first episode introduces the titular antihero and father with his unique career path, Donovan, as his own interminable father Mickey (Jon Voight) is released from jail after twenty years. Ann Biderman (Southland) spoke to Think Progress of the Californian setting, the underlying themes and the show's commentary on the glitzy lives of the rich: "it's pointed humor but underneath I'm hoping there's kind of some tenderness and that it is real and that everyone here is kind of trying to do the best they can."

The Huffington Post's Maureen Ryan describes the show as a "Frankenstein's monster" of TV, deriding it as "more than just an average letdown" with much of the show feeling "disjointed, or tired, or both" culminating in a step in the wrong direction for Showtime, who are responsible for the hugely successful Homeland political thriller.

Ray Donovan: Showtime's Bid To Expose The Darker Side Of Hollywood


Liev Schreiber Jon Voight

The TV drama Ray Donovan features broken arms, drug-fueled ragers, baseball bat beatdowns – it sounds like the perfect storm, a good fit for Showtime’s summer roster. The series will premiere this Sunday, after he final season opener of Dexter. The title character in particular – the flawed Hollywood “fixer”, is an apt replacement, following in the tradition of troubled, complicated protagonists with questionable moral centers – Mad Men’s Don Draper and The Sopranos’ Tony Soprano come to mind as apt comparisons.

Liev Schreiber, G'Day USA Black Tie Gala

The series tells the story of Ray as Hollywood’s fixer – the man who swoops in on family drama, trouble with the law, relationships gone bad, all of it – and fixes the situation before the media gets wind. Naturally, being privy to the deepest, darkest secrets of Tinseltown, comes with a whole slew of problems for Ray’s life. The biggest of those, however, has nothing to do with Donovan’s secretive occupation – the plot twist comes when Donovan’s mobster father (John Voight) is unexpectedly released from prison.
