“Birdman” rules The Oscars

Fewer people are watching The Oscars, as this was the worst TV ratings performance since 2009. Still, Neil Patrick Harris was excellent as the host and his opening number had a planned interruption from Jack Black who went on a singing rant of everything that’s wrong with the movie business – too many superheroes and mindless sequels to start.

Still, it was cool to see an original film like “Birdman” take top honors.

The Gambler Preview

Director: Rupert Wyatt
Screenwriter: William Monahan
Starring: Mark Wahlberg, John Goodman and Brie Larson
Release Date: 25th December 2014

Hollywood movies have long been obsessed with the charged and risky atmosphere of the casino. Even with the rise of online gambling, with many now making their high-stake plays from the privacy of their own homes, Hollywood still cannot get enough of the duality of sin and luxury offered by the casino setting. Therefore, in honour of Hollywood’s continued affair with glittering chandeliers, seedy dealings and shuffling cards, we’ve taken a look at the star-studded remake of The Gambler.
