LONDON - Two former Guantanamo detainees on Thursday condemned "Zero Dark Thirty," a film about the hunt for Osama bin Laden whose brutal interrogation scenes have sparked a discussion over the use of extreme methods in the U.S. campaign against terror. Speaking at an event in London on the eve of the 11th anniversary of the opening of the U.S. prison camp in eastern Cuba, the pair said the film was an attempt to rehabilitate those guilty of human rights abuses. "These people are getting away not only with committing the torture ... they're justifying it," said one of the ex-detainees, Libyan-born Omar Deghayes, who was left partially bl... more

NEW YORK - In this year's Oscar nominations, the director's seat was the hot seat. In the now heavily analyzed awards season, unequivocal snubs have become less common as the field is more accurately predicted. But on Thursday morning, the motion picture academy provided the genuine article: a somewhat shocking and unexpected brush off to one whom it so recently exalted: Kathryn Bigelow. The director of the Osama bin Laden chase film "Zero Dark Thirty" had been widely expected to land her second directing nomination, with a strong chance of repeating her dramatic 2009 win for "The Hurt Locker" over James Cameron and a little, blue-people... more

PASADENA, California - Al Pacino said Friday that he decided not to meet famed record producer and convicted killer Phil Spector before portraying him in an HBO movie - only to find he already had. A friend showed Pacino a 20-year-old photo in which the actor was standing next to Spector. Pacino said he has no memory of the moment. The movie, "Phil Spector," debuts in March. It focuses on the client-attorney relationship between Spector and Linda Kenney Baden, who represented him in his first trial after he was charged with the murder of actress Lana Clarkson. That ended in a mistrial, but Spector was convicted in a second trial and is n... more

"Django Unchained" director Quentin Tarantino said he will not respond to filmmaker Spike Lee, who called the movie disrespectful and said he would boycott it. Tarantino said he would not "waste time" by responding to the criticism, Italy news agency, ANSA, reported Thursday. Tarantino was in Rome for the European premiere of his latest film -- about an American slave who teams up with a bounty hunter to rescue his wife. "Django Unchained" was inspired by a 1960s spaghetti western of the same name. Lee posted on Twitter last week that he would not watch the film because it would be "disrespectful to my ancestors." "American Slavery Wa... more
