At one point a few years ago, Paul Greengrass was looking to make a biopic on legendary rocker Jimi Hendrix with Anthony Mackie in the lead. But when the Hendrix estate wouldn't sign off on the project, it fell apart and everyone moved on. But now, things are moving again. Mackie is back to play the axeman, with Ol Parker ("Now Is Good") at the helm of the movie "which chronicles the last nine days of Hendrix's life."

If you managed to catch John Michael McDonagh's "The Guard" last year, you'll surely agree that it was right up there with "Bridesmaids" in contention for the title of The Funniest Film of 2011. And here's something we don't say very often, but let's give the Golden Globes a whole heap of credit for nominating Brendan Gleeson for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy when most of the other major awards ceremonies forgot about the film (even the BAFTAs only managed to recognize it in one category). Gleeson and his co-star Don Cheadle were excellent in the movie, and we can't stress enough how much you should seek out this wicked black comedy if you haven't seen it yet.
