Bodi comes from from a long line of guard dog’s but he wants something more, he wants to be the happy pooch, and when a radio falls from the sky, he follows his dream to be a rock star all the way to the big city – with mixed results…
Rock Dog opens on February 24, 2017. The trailer opens right now on the other side of the break.
Whiplash, my favorite movie of 2014, is now available on DVD.
It’s a tale of the lengths someone will got to to be great, and the lengths someone will go to to push someone to be great. Whiplash won three Oscars® this year – including Best Supporting Actor for J.K. Simmons for the role of Mr. Fletcher, the abusive instructor/conductor of the top-rated music school’s jazz band.
Neil Patrick Harris wasn’t brilliant for most of his first evening hosting the Oscars®, but when he picked his spots he definitely sparkled – his few comments on the lack of diversity in the Academy’s selections (‘…celebrating Hollywood’s best and whitest, sorry, brightest;’ Oh, sure ! You like them now!’) may not have been many, but they were perfect – making the point and then moving on (from that first dig right into a stunning eight-minute song and dance number that dropped him into classic movie scenes).
Birdman won three Indie Spirit Awards this afternoon – Best Picture, Best Male Lead (Michael Keaton) and Best Cinematography (Emmanuel Lubezki) – while Boyhood, its major competitor for the Oscars®, nabbed Best Director (Richard Linklater) and Best Supporting Female (Patricia Arquette). Julianne Moore won Best Female Lead for Still Alice.
Citizenfour won Best Documentary, J.K. Simmons got Best Supporting Male, and Ida won Best Foreign Film. For a complete list of winners, follow the jump.
