Exclusive: Oscar Nominee Jeff Bridges on Crazy Heart - The RT Interview Opens in new window

With an impressive career spanning 50 years, Jeff Bridges started out as a young whippersnapper on his dad's 1960s TV series, The Lloyd Bridges Show. Since then, he's starred in classics such as Tron, Bad Company, The Fabulous Baker Boys and The Last Picture Show, for which he was Oscar nominated. But he will continue to be best remembered for his iconic turn as The Dude in the Coen Brothers' The Big Lebowski. This month, Bridges received his fifth Oscar nomination for Scott Cooper's Crazy Heart. He stars as down-on-his-luck country singer "Bad" Blake and is favourite to take home the statuette for a brilliantly vanity-free performance.

So what does that leave? Let's spin the dials on the Tomatometer and find out! More...

Critics Consensus: Avatar Is Certified Fresh Opens in new window

This week at the movies, we've got a strange alien world (James Cameron's Avatar, starring Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana), and a couple on the run (Did You Hear about the Morgans?, starring Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker). What do the critics have to say? Avatar is one of the most hotly anticipated films in years, for a number of reasons: it marks James Cameron's return to fiction filmmaking after a long layoff; its motion capture techniques were the subject of intense pre-release press; and it's the most expensive movie ever made. And now, the verdict is in: critics say Avatar is indeed a visionary picture. More...
