Oh, yes. I know the feeling of being directionless or having a feeling of having lost my purpose. Don't give up, I think we all feel it from time to time. “Some days I am Orson Wells. Other days I am the worst loser, imposter, know-nothing wannabe filmmaker in the world. I believe both with equal conviction. And I have become friends with that rudderless feeling.” Alexander Payne, film director

Although you wouldn't necessarily know it from all the ads for movies with digital animals, super heroes (animated and otherwise), and alleged human beings outrunning fireballs, this is a golden age of American movies comparable to the 60s and 70s (and a golden age of television, for that matter: Mad Men, The Sopranos, The Good Wife, etc). The brilliant actors are so numerous it's hard to single a few out. The same could almost be said for directors, but here's a sampling: the Coen brothers (Inside Llewyn Davis, A Serious Man, No Country for Old Men, Fargo.), Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Moonrise Kingdom, The Royal Tenenbaums), Alexander Payne (Nebraska, Sideways, About Schmidt, Election), Paul Greengrass (at last putting his immense skills for visceral action to great use in Captain Phillips), Paul Thomas Anderson (who got it all together for There Will Be Blood, even if he lost it in The Master), Spike Jonze (Her, Adaptation, Being John Malkovich), Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty, The Hu .. ...

TODAY’S NOTABLE TEXAN THOMAS HADEN CHURCH For MARCH 10th 2014 Thomas Haden Church was born Thomas Richard McMillen on June 17, 1960, but grew up in Laredo and Harlingen Texas. He began his show business career in front of a microphone instead of a camera, first as a radio deejay and then as a voice-over announcer. After landing a role in the independent film, Stolen Moments, Church moved to Los Angeles to pursue his acting career. Church started in the entertainment business as a radio personality and doing voice over work. A part in an independent film convinced him to move to California to pursue an acting career. He played the part of slow-witted airport mechanic Lowell Mather for six seasons (1990–1995) on the NBC sitcom Wings. He worked in television for two more seasons with a lead role on Ned and Stacey opposite Debra Messing. He has had supporting roles in films such as Tombstone, George of the Jungle, and The Specials. In 2003, director Alexander Payne called him regarding the role of "Jack", ...

Today In Black History • March 3, 1807 President Thomas Jefferson signed into law legislation to ban the importation of enslaved people effective January 1, 1808. While the law outlawed the importation of enslaved people to the United States, it did not end the buying and selling of enslaved people within the U. S. That would not occur until the end of the Civil War and the passage of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution December 6, 1865. • March 3, 1821 Thomas L. Jennings became the first Black person to receive a United States patent when he was awarded patent number 3306x for a dry-scouring process. Jennings was born in 1791 in New York City. In his early 20’s, he opened a dry cleaning business and while running his business developed dry-scouring, what we now refer to as dry-cleaning. The patent to Jennings generated considerable controversy because under United States patent laws enslaved people could not patent their inventions. This was based on the legal presumption that “the master is t ...

Alexander Payne's 'Nebraska' is now available to stream:
Movie director Alexander Payne will draw attention to his home state at the Oscars tonight, but not all Nebraskans have loved his portrayal of folks in “Nebraska.”
Yes, we were happy to see Her get a win! Would have liked to have seen a little mention for Alexander Payne's Nebraska though...
I woke up this morning to watch- what turned out to be the most boring, insipid, unimaginative Oscar ceremony ever. To watch stars eat Pizza is no entertainment. And to snub The Square or An Act of Killing in the feature documentary shows how little relevance there is in the Academy Awards. The closest any body came to giving something that matters is when Jared Leto wove in Ukraine and Venezuela in his acceptance speech. But then in year where visual effects is celebrated as the ultimate Art Form and Gravity sweeps 6 or 7 awards- what can you say? Alfonso Cuaron is a remarkably talented director but didn't deserve Best Director for Gravity- not when you have Spike Jonze wit Her or Alexander Payne with Nebraska or David Russell with Amercian Hustle or even Steve McQueen with 12 Years a Slave! The Academy has sanitised itself of any social relevance and celebrated Fluff!
I would like to say that I will watch a David O Russell film any day. I will defend him, Alexander Payne and Spike Jonze
