It may be hard to believe but News of the World marks the first time in his career in which actor Tom Hanks stars in a Western. Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd (Tom Hanks) travels around to read people the news. One could also look at this as being old-school podcasting before podcasting was ever a…"News of the World Arrives on Home Video"
Godzilla makes its arrival on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack and Digital just in time for the release of Godzilla vs. Kong.

I knew going into this year’s film festival that chances were high for a non-productive fest. Would it have been the same if I were physically attending in person? I don’t know. What I can say for certain is that during an in-person fest, I’m not spending so much time on my phone or…"SXSW 2021: Film Festival Wrap-Up"

After last year’s edition got wiped out due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2021 SXSW Film Festival will take place entirely online. If you’re looking to fully recreate the SXSW experience, make sure to have a day where you pretend to lose it to traffic issues. I missed out on a film in 2018 because neither Uber nor Lyft would take my card and the taxi service wouldn’t respond to a pickup request. It can…"SXSW 2021: SXSW Film Festival Goes Virtual"

The British Academy of Film & Television Arts (BAFTA) revealed the nominations for the EE British Academy Film Awards in 2021. In glancing at the list, a major take away is Best Actress in a Leading Role is not going to be a consensus pick this year. If anything, the eventual Oscar winner might have one major win during these major awards coming down the stretch. BAFTA nominees Vanessa Kirby or Frances McDormand are also…"2021 BAFTA Awards: The Nominations"
