It's been too long since anyone made a really good western. I guess the last one was "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford," but few people even got to the end of the title, let alone that stultifyingly beautiful movie. What else comes to mind? The HBO series "Deadwood"? Slim pickings.
"TRON," the original 1982 light-show video-game thriller starring Jeff Bridges as a software programmer trapped inside a brave new computer world of his own devising, is a movie that I, like many others, found to be such a tinny, dehumanized piece of techno-kitsch that I was shocked to learn it has since become a cult film.
The Screen Actors Guild announced it nominations for the 16th annual SAG Awards Thursday, with "Precious" and "Up in the Air" earning three nominations each. Both films also picked up multiple Golden Globe nominations this week.
