"Uncharted" may be a massively popular video game franchise, but getting the movie made has proven to be all kinds of difficult. At one time, it was mooted for David O. Russell who eventually left the project and was replaced by Neil Burger, who also wound up exiting. Things have been kind of dormant for the past couple of years, but no more.

Received wisdom says that most years, including this one, the Best Actress field of contenders for the Oscars is "weaker" than their male counterparts, with a fairly limited group of possibilities who are plausible nominees. To which we can only say: horseshit. Every year, but this one in particular, we watch scores of fine female performances be overlooked because they're in small indie movies or because they were overshadowed in reviews by male co-stars or because they're not Meryl Streep.

Making A Scene Cate Blanchett
When Janusz Kaminski isn’t lensing his often Oscar-nominated work on a batch of Steven Spielberg’s finest films, including “Schindler’s List," “Saving Private Ryan," and most recently “Lincoln," the cinematographer also occasionally settles into the director’s chair. Three films (including the underwhelming Winona Ryder horror “Lost Souls”) and a TV episode of “The Event” have allowed Kaminski full cinematic reign so far, and just as Canon performed with their own short film campaign this month that found actors at the helm, the NY Times have created their own — and allowed Kaminski 11 unique vignettes within which to work.

We're in the thick of the awards season, which means long gone are the conversations about how long it took to set up a big VFX shot or what it was like playing [insert superhero]. Instead, movie lovers can now actually have substantive talks about, well, movies, and more importantly, so to can filmmakers. Which means for the next little while, as we get closer to the Oscars, we're going to be getting some fascinating talks with some great talent, and here's one of them.

While she's a firmly established and talented actress, Julie Delpy has been spreading her wings to the arenas of writing and directing over the past few years. In addition to earning credits for penning "Before Sunrise" and "Before Midnight," she's earned writer/director bonafides on "2 Days In Paris," the sequel "2 Days In New York," "The Countess" and French comedy "Skylab." And now it looks like HBO is wisely enlisting her talents for a burgeoning new series.

What happened at the cliffhanger ending of 2004's "Before Sunset?" Did Jesse (Ethan Hawke) manage to catch his flight back to the United States or did he and Celine (Julie Delpy) finally re-consummate their nine-year-after-the-fact romance? These questions are answered in Richard Linklater's trilogy-concluding "Before Midnight," a charming and funny, but much more emotionally difficult and pained picture than one might have imagined. Those expecting another swooningly romantic movie are going to be in for a rude awakening. While "Before Midnight" certainly has its appealing moments of allure and levity, it's ultimately more "This Is 40"-style pain with much more honesty and real bite than Judd Apatow would likely ever go for, and when "Before Midnight" bares its fangs and becomes uncomfortable there are few moments of comedic relief or a new jaunty scene to cut to.

Reuniting its leads Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy for a third entry, Richard Linklater's “Before Midnight” is by no means a simple cash grab, but a logical emotional step to its central romance. The film's couple have navigated their feelings from Vienna, Paris, and now Greece, and a new clip released shows their comfort with one another, but also their tiny annoyances.

You can feel it, the weather is getting warmer, those chilly winter nights are giving way to the soft evening breezes of spring, and pretty soon summer will be here. And there is probably no cinema couple better suited for the hazy romance fueled by the possibilities of warm weather and endless nights than Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Celine (Julie Delpy), and "Before Midnight" will soon be here to cap off a beloved trilogy.
