It’s just a short six months until Avengers: Age Of Ultron hits the big screen. It’s been a long time coming for fans: four films and three years in the making. The initial trailer for the flick did a lot to stir up anticipation, and many noted just how dark it looked compared to the first Avengers flick. A big part of that likely had to do with the vocal performance of James Spader, who plays the film’s main villain, Ultron, after whom the film was named. While on the set of Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Cinema Blend got to speak with director Joss Whedon and discuss what it was like working with Spader on the film, and how the motion capture suit helped distance Spader from humanity.

In this golden age of prestige television, it’s easy to forget that generic shows still dominate the ratings. That disparity was driven home when CBS chief research officer David Poltrack took to the stage at the UBS Global Media Conference on Monday and revealed the two most popular shows on Netflix are NBC’s The Blacklist and ABC’s Once Upon A Time.

It’s been a while since we’ve received a memorable Western. It’s been a very long time since one was as unforgettable as “Unforgiven” or “True Grit.” And one that’s simultaneously an 1850s feminist epic, a morbidly amusing prairie farce and a revisionist action-adventure yarn? That’s pretty much unheard of. Continue here

There aren’t a lot of women in Westerns. Most of the time they’re on the edges of the screen, left behind on the homestead, kidnapped by injuns, enticing men into saloons. As a rule, a woman does not drive the Western plot, but this year’s The Homesman is one of very few exceptions. Continue here

Nowadays, Westerns are a thing of the past, a relic of filmmaking and entertainment discarded by Hollywood. On the surface, it would seem “The Homesman,” the new movie made by and starring Tommy Lee Jones, is a throwback, then, but in truth, it’s anything but a traditional entry into the genre. As much a deconstruction of the genre as Clint Eastwood’s “The Unforgiven,” the film is a taut, challenging piece of work that features Hilary Swank as Mary Bee Cuddy, one of the year’s best female roles, includes a storyline that is absolutely heartbreaking, and in all likelihood has a twist you won’t see coming.

After months of pondering whether or not “The Blacklist” was worth watching, I finally caved in and cannot believe I waited so long to give this show a try. It is absolutely amazing. Even though I heard great things about it, I was still skeptical when I first started the show. However, after watching three straight episodes and staying up until 3 a.m., I can officially say I am addicted. Continue here
