DVD Tuesday: Sex, Lies and Atonement

DVD Tuesday Sex lies and betrayal the ravishing heartbreaking Atonement comes to DVDI cant figure out why Atonement didnt get a little more love from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences but Im doing my bit to make up for it Its beautifully adapted by Christopher Hampton Dangerous Liaisons from Ian McEwans devastating novel -- which I highly recommend reading its just as gripping after youve seen the movie because its about so much more than what happens next and features top-notch performances Just dont expect the new Titanic which is the way its been marketed Its not a glossy period romance its a gorgeously photographed examination of the ugly things people do out of ignorance spite and ambition England 1935 The wealthy Tallis family is gathered at its vast country estate on a swelteringly hot summer day Eldest daughter Cecilia Keira Knightley and Robbie James McAvoy the housekeepers son Mr Tallis is beneficently putting thr read more

Jeers: Atonement's Sinful Oscar Nod

Jeers to the Oscar voters for rewarding Atonement with a knee-jerk best-picture nomination. I took a holiday from TV so I could see it and be prepared for its onslaught of accolades. But I wasn't prepared for what an overwrought piece of kitsch this movie is. Keira Knightley does most of her acting with her shoulderblades, and James McAvoy is a nonentity. And I'm sorry, but did I miss the scene that explains why these two love each other so desperately — or at all? If Joe Wright's odd, silly Titanic wannabe beats Paul Thomas Anderson's genuine masterpiece on Oscar night, there will be blood!• Read and react to Bruce's opinions on Breaking Bad, Cashmere Mafia's Bonnie Somerville and more!• Share your own raves and rants about other shows on the Reader Cheers & Jeers discussion board.• We may feature your Cheer or Jeer on TVGuide.com or in TV Guide magazine! read more

Jena Malone Takes Pride in Prejudice

Of all the multinominated films vying for Academy Awards this Sunday, Pride & Prejudice may be the most overlooked. The latest adaptation of Jane Austen's ageless tale picked up four nominations — including a best-actress nod for Keira Knightley — but its buzz is nowhere near that of higher-profile contenders such as Walk the Line and Brokeback Mountain. Jena Malone, who plays Knightley's on-screen sister Lydia is a bit skeptical of putting too much stock in awards, but she hopes the extra attention will bring new audiences to the film. TVGuide.com found this out when we spoke with Malone about the classic romance's arrival this week on DVD. TVGuide.com: Be read more
