Bradley Cooper
Bradley Cooper is nominated for a Best Supporting Oscar this year for his work on “American Hustle.” Sometime later this year, he should probably star in “American Sniper,” a project he’s spearheading as producer with Clint Eastwood directing, and there’s one more 'American' film to come.

Guardians Of The Galaxy
The first trailer for "Guardians Of Galaxy" dropped on Monday night, and for the most part, fans were hugely enthusiastic about James Gunn's film, vibing with the winking tone of the superhero flick. But there was one major thing missing from its first promo: voices. Outside of Chris Pratt's Star-Lord, we didn't really hear anything out of the rest of the (mostly CGI enhanced) cast. Well, that's about to change.

American Hustle Robert De Niro
"De Niro is extremely meticulous when he's really passionate about something and we had endless conversations," director David O. Russell said last fall at a press conference for "American Hustle." "He loved the fact that this man [Victor Tellegio] spoke Arabic—which happens to be one of the true things in the story. Truth is crazier than fiction, but there was a mobster who spoke Arabic... He was really into meticulously constructing this guy. He wanted to do something he'd never done before." And the result is one of the most memorable moments in the film.

Guardians Of The Galaxy
So, a superhero movie with a raccoon and talking tree among the team, many have said (including us) that "Guardians Of The Galaxy" represents the biggest roll of the dice Marvel has taken to date. Just don't tell that to director James Gunn. "I don't think it's the riskiest Marvel property," he told Total Film. "I think 'Iron Man' was by far the riskiest. It was a film company that didn't have much, raising money to make a film based on a property that wasn't that much more well known than 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' So I think it's not even close to the riskiest Marvel property." Of course, Tony Stark now has three standalone movies to his name and the question is, can 'Guardians' reach that level of success?

Oscars: The Best Underrated Performances By The 2014 Acting Noms
With the Oscar nominations out, and the SAGs and Golden Globes a few weeks in the past, we're entering something of a quiet phase in awards season, with the Academy not even due to begin voting for a few weeks yet. So it seems like a good time to look back.

For a minute, it looked as if the race might be over. David O. Russell's "American Hustle" (and the way that that phrase rhymes alone makes us glad it's a Best Picture nominee) had the momentum going into the Oscar nominations last week, and had even more after it: ten nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, and four acting nods, one in each category, only the second movie to achieve that feat in the last thirty years (Russell's previous film, "Silver Linings Playbook," being the other).

American Hustle Louis C.K.
There is no such thing as a small role, the old saying goes, and one of the many pleasures to be found in David O. Russell's awards season contender "American Hustle," is Louis C.K.'s turn as Stoddard Thorsen, the supervisor to Bradley Cooper's slowly unraveling FBI agent Richie DiMaso. Throughout the film, the two come head-to-head, bickering over the scope and reach of their operation, and their meetings are usually finished by Stoddard sharing a new portion of an ice fishing story which Richie keeps trying to guess the end of. In the movie, neither the audience nor Richie manage to hear the punchline, but it has finally been revealed.

American Hustle
While "The Wolf Of Wall Street" and "American Hustle" can be loosely linked by their conman centered stories, and voiceover driven narratives, focused on an ensemble of players doing bad things, the similarities end there. Where Martin Scorsese's picture goes headlong into the extremes of bad behaviour, David O. Russell's film is more concerned on the emotional fallout and toll. It makes for a different (and arguably) far more richer and satisfying experience. And while we'll leave that debate for the comments section, here's a reminder that "American Hustle" has it's own wild side.
