"I am an actor"

The best tradition of the Screen Actor Guild Awards each year,beyond their decision to keep the lifetime achievement award on air (are you listening Oscar?),is their opening bit wherein a random collection of thespians give little weird speeches that end with "I am an actor."Sometimes they're funny.Sometimes they're serious.Sometimes they're headscratching.Regardless,it's always something to look forward to each year.Here are the five actors they chose this year in ascending order of how well they pulled it off.

Kutcher read from a teleprompter.Noooooo.

Terminate the Terminator Franchise
Forbeson whyTerminator: Genisysopened weak in the States -- curiously no one ever mentions that Emilia Clarke is not a strong actor and she's up against memories of Linda Hamilton's Oscar nomination worthy work!
The Daily Beastinterviews Alan Taylor (who has not had much luck as a feature director after proving a hot commodity on TV) and he has curious "just go with it"opinions on how messy his movie is
NYTprofiles producer David Ellison (Megan's brother) on his struggles gettingTerminator Genisysgoing and building a multiverse like Marvel.This was a good read but the title is truly bizarre.How is investing solely in mainstream tentpole franchise moviemaking an example of 'not playing it safe.' That's exactly what playing it safe is.Not playing it safe is what Megan Ellison does with her risky art films.

Look,I am one of the biggestTerminatorfans that exists.I saw the first two a ton of times,and think they're veritable masterpieces of their form.They still play today and their action sequences are more exciting (still) even knowing every beat than anything in any of the ill-begotten sequels.Enough already.This franchise was already complete when James Cameron was finished with it twenty-plus years ago.Making money is perfectly fine asonegoal but if it's theonlygoal when making a movie,you've already failed.Movies made solely for money (and for no other reason) are never good.

Are you watchingTrue DetectiveSeason 2?Do you also wish Skynet would stay down after being defeated for the fifth time?

Ashton's iBIO

(picvia) JA fromMNPPhere - say what you will on the acting abilities of Ashton Kutcher (every zinger under the sun's probably been tossed that way already) but I actually think he was great casting at least looks-wise fora young Steve Jobsin the upcoming bio-pic of the Apple founder,which is apparently going by the namejOBS(ugh).Of course,as has been discussed time and again here at The Film Experience,亚博主页getting the look is only part of the battle when it comes to biographical mimickry,and even on that front a non-tech-geek like me can close my eyes and picture the real Steve Jobs summoning up god-like beturtlenecked presence as he unveiled his latest wünder-tech.So...an uphill battle for the former plaything o' Demi,no?But the socks are perfect!
