Celebrities flocked to the 2014 God's Love We Deliver Golden Heart Awards at Spring Studios and posed for pictures on the red carpet. Amongst them was Bette Midler, an Academy award nominee, as well as a Grammy, Golden Globe, Emmy and Tony Award winner. Also there was Jenny Slate, a stand-up comedian and actress.
Paul (Jason Patric) used to be a major figure in the Las Vegas crime world - known by his rivals as 'The Prince - before retiring to life as a mechanic in Mississippi as the single father of his growing daughter Angela (Jessica Lowndes). However, his past is coming back to haunt him as one former rival, Omar (Bruce Willis), just can't let his grudge rest. Angela is kidnapped, forcing Paul to face his enemies once again; he travels down to where he believes she has been taken after taking advice from an old friend named Sam (John Cusack). He's still got the weapons and he's definitely still got his formidable fighting skills, but after living in peace for so long, will he be able to save the only person left in his life? Omar's betting he won't, and even he does, he's still got lots to explain to his angry and confused daughter about his dark past.

The upcoming television show 'Powers' will debut on the PlayStation Network in December. What's it all about?
There’s no shortage of the Marvel brand anywhere you look these days. All over the television networks with ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D,’ plastered on the big screen with X-Men, Spider-Man, and Captain America, and even on your video game consoles with 'LEGO Marvel Super Heroes.' But the ever present Marvel is about to take its presence on the game consoles up a notch: the upcoming television series, 'Powers,' based off Marvel’s Icon imprint comic, is scheduled to make its debut exclusively on the PlayStation Network this December.
Playstation announced 'Powers' at E3
Originally announced in March but further expanded on during Sony’s recent E3 press conference, the consensus within the gaming community of ‘Powers’ on the PlayStation Network seems to be a big “who cares.” It’s not surprising, really, because after all, people didn’t buy their PlayStations for television -- they bought them for games. It makes it even worse that Sony spent a good chunk of that E3 conference discussing what the show was all about when they could have easily said all of the same things in a press release and instead used that time to talk about games people are anticipating. Either way, whether people care or not, everyone with a PlayStation console is going to be able to experience ‘Powers’ themselves, because the first episode will be free for all users. For those subscribed to the PlayStation Plus service, the entire season will be free, but pricing hasn’t been announced yet for those not subscribed.

The case has been going on for several years.
Actor Jason Patric scored a victory in court and established a legal precedent this past Wednesday, when he was granted the right to claim paternity of his four-year-old son Gus, conceived through artificial insemination. The custody dispute between Patric and his former girlfriend Danielle Schreiber dragged on for months and attracted nationwide press attention. Patric was unsuccessful in the original dispute, when a a Los Angeles Superior Court judge denied The Lost Boys star access to the child. According to California law, in these cases, the mother is given full custody, unless there is a written agreement establishing parental rights before conception.
Patric won on his second try for custody.
This decision was overturned, however, when Patric appealed. Accortding to The Hollywood Reporter California appeals court judge Thomas Willhite says that the presumption against in vitro fathers shouldn't be "so categorical," and that the family law code "does not preclude a donor from establishing that he is a presumed father."

The 47 year-old actor has been awarded a chance to fight to be recognized as the father of his 4 year-old son, Gus.
Jason Patric will be able to fight again to be legally recognised as the father of his 4 year-old son, Gus.
The actor, whose victory occurred in a Los Angeles courtroom, will take the custody case back to trial after losing an earlier bout in February last year (2013).
Patric fathered the young boy by in-vitro fertilization, or IVF, with his then girlfriend, Danielle Schreiber, and they both co-parented him until their relationship ended in 2012.

Blunt and simplistic, there's not a moment in this thriller that feels inspired by anything other than criminal TV shows. This means that everything on-screen feels comfortably familiar, so we happily go along with the story even as it gets increasingly ridiculous. But just a bit of complexity might have helped us care about what happens.
When his daughter Samantha is found murdered in Los Angeles, military contractor Lex is called back from the front lines to claim her body. But after flying in from the Middle East, he discovers that it's not her. Local police Detective Klein (Patric) is more interested in investigating Lex than finding out what really happened to Samantha, so Lex starts to look into things himself. First, he checks out Samantha's shifty boss (Caan). Then, with the help of a friend (Elizabeth), he tracks down her boyfriend Ricky (Messner) and eventually finds Samantha herself (Ordway). And now there's a whole new set of problems.
Writer-director Miller tells this story as if it's a pilot episode for a cop series, eliminating any ambiguity by continually reminding us who's good and bad. As a result, there isn't a single surprise along the way, action scenes are predictable and the drama feels soapy and silly. It's not like there aren't strong themes gurgling under the surface, but none of the actors bother to break through. Fairbrass is such a meathead that we wonder how he could possibly be an elite tactical soldier, while Caan seems to be channelling vicious-thug-mode Robert DeNiro. At least he and Patric seem to be having some fun with their roles.

On a mission in Bolivia, a five-man black-ops team is betrayed by their power-mad CIA boss Max (Patric) and left for dead. But they embark on a mission to get revenge and clear their names, with Clay (Morgan) leading techie Jensen (Evans), demolition expert Roque (Elba), driver-pilot Pooch (Short) and sniper Cougar (Jaenada). They also enlist the help of a sexy-but-shady woman (Saldana) as they track Max and his vile henchman (McCallany) from Miami to Los Angeles and try to stop his nefarious Bond-like plan.

Based on the extremely controversial novel, Sleepers tells what is purported to be a true story of revenge in Hell's Kitchen in New York City. Four early-teenaged friends (played as adults by Patric, Pitt, Ron Eldard, and Billy Crudup -- who I have to mention just because I like to say "Crudup") are sent to a juvenile center when a prank goes wrong and almost kills a bystander. The brutality that occurs in the center does not need to be expounded upon, but suffice it's very horrible, and that guard Sean Nokes (Bacon) is the baddest of the bad guys.

If you want to remember the Alamo, the latest feature film version of the Texas fort's famous last stand may not be much help.
A beautifully produced but relatively bloodless (literally and figuratively) Hollywood rendering of the 1836 siege on San Antonio by tyrannical General Santa Anna, who was determined to recapture the territory for Mexico, it's a movie more concerned with details like Jim Bowie's terminal case of consumption than it is with the historical context of its story and its legendary characters.
In this movie, Bowie (Jason Patric) the frontier adventurer and volunteer army colonel is presented as little more than an infamous "knife fighter" haunted by his wife's death. Newspaper publisher, lawyer and militiaman Lt. Col. William B. Travis (Patrick Wilson) is just a determined dandy with questioned military skills (questioned mostly by Bowie) who rises to the occasion as temporary commander of these now-fortified grounds surrounding an unfinished mission. David "Davey" Crockett (Billy Bob Thornton) is a fiddle-playing former senator made famous by a stage play written about something he once did while wearing a coonskin hat -- and why he's even at the Alamo isn't entirely clear.
