Top 10 Movies of 2013 (JimmyO)

With 2013 coming to an end, I am once again reminded that there is good out there when it comes to cinema. Early in the year it certainly may have seemed as if we were in for some serious trouble. And once summer came around many were disappointed in the big popcorn flick choices. Yet there was fun to be had even if not one single superhero flick made my best of the year list. MAN OF STEEL,...

Top 10 Movies of 2013 (Chris Bumbray)

And so another year is in the books! It can't be denied that 2013 started off badly . The first two months of the year were a wasteland of crap, with us being deluged by some truly horrendous films like GANGSTER SQUAD, MOVIE 43, A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD, and worse.

Exclusive 1:1 Interview with 12 Years a Slave star Chiwetel Ejiofer

It's hard to truly describe the experience of watching Chiwetel Ejiofer in 12 YEARS A SLAVE. Playing Solomon Northup - whose true, terrifying story this film is based upon - Ejiofer disappears in an all-too-real way into his role as a pre-Civil War free black man who quite literally wakes up one day to discover he has become a slave. To witness this good person's transition from family man...

Exclusive 1:1 Interview with 12 Years a Slave stars Alfre Woodard and Lupita Nyong'o

12 YEARS A SLAVE is Steve McQueen 's harrowing dramatization of Solomon Northup's experience going from a free man to slave in the blink of an eye. And though he's the center of this particular, unforgettable depiction of slavery in America, he's far from the only one who suffers cruelty and inhumanity of the time. Lupita Nyong'o plays Patsy, one of the slaves Northup (Chiwetel...

Exclusive 1:1 Interview with 12 Years a Slave star Sarah Paulson

There are many evils depicted in 12 YEARS A SLAVE, Steve McQueen 's searing depiction of slavery in America, and actress Sarah Paulson is party to quite a few of them. Playing the wife of a merciless plantation owner (portrayed by Michael Fassbender ), Paulson's Mary Epps is as cold and remorseless as her husband, even if she doesn't wield a whip and looks for all the world like a...
