Mon, Apr 24 2017


There’s almost two Tom Hanks on display in movie theaters these days. There’s the one taking the lead in prestige fare like he’s always done. For example, there was Sully just last year, with potentially another big time turn to be found later on in 2017 with Steven Spielberg’s The Post. Over the past few years, ho ... READ MORE

Paul Thomas Anderson and Christopher Nolan: Filmmakers most overdue to win an Oscar

Fri, Apr 21 2017


Much like I said last week, of the many storylines that begin during awards season, few are usually as compelling as the ones centered around who’s most due for an Academy Award. I think that it’s usually pretty satisfying to see a former bridesmaid finally become a bride, as it were. As such, below I’ve made up a list of ten filmma ... READ MORE

“Free Fire” is a blast with another top notch Brie Larson performance

Thu, Apr 20 2017


It’s a little bit of an understatement to say that filmmaker Ben Wheatley has not made mainstream movies so far. His films are niche items, albeit sometimes incredibly compelling ones. This week, he makes what might be his most mainstream flick possibly, an action comedy of sorts in Free Fire. Although still decidedly independent, t ... READ MORE

Christian Bale brings his A-list talents to “The Promise”

Wed, Apr 19 2017


Given the right role, it’s distinctly possible that there’s nobody better in the business than Christian Bale. He can just own the screen and dominate a film. There’s a reason why he’s an Academy Award winner and slowly becoming someone that voters seem to look for a reason to cite. Oscar aside, he’s simply a ... READ MORE

Oscar Isaac might finally break through with the Academy in 2017

Tue, Apr 18 2017


It seems like every year there’s a reason to revisit Oscar Isaac and the work that he’s done so far. This year, he may actually get that elusive first Academy Award nomination if things break the right way, but regardless of that, he remains an incredibly exciting actor. Oscar wise (no pun intended), he seems likeliest to cont ... READ MORE

Judd Apatow and Kevin Smith: Filmmakers most overdue their first Oscar nomination

Fri, Apr 14 2017


Continuing on with a yearly series I like to do on those deserving of Academy Award wins or nominations, it’s time to turn attention to filmmakers. Actors and actresses are the sexier group, but writers and directors are the backbone of the industry. There are plenty who have never been cited by the Academy, so that will be the focu ...

“The Lost City of Z” recalls a classic form of cinema

Thu, Apr 13 2017


James Gray is a filmmaker who often seems to wind up having the worst luck. Whether it’s with a distributor or with his star acting up, Gray can’t seem to catch a break once his film is in the can. This time around, Brad Pitt and Plan B funded The Lost City of Z, with Amazon Studios picking it up for distribution. Aside from a ... READ MORE

“Win it All” is another strong pairing of Jake Johnson and Joe Swanberg

Wed, Apr 12 2017


Joe Swanberg has had one of the more interesting career upswings of any independent filmmaker out there. After being one of the essential founders of the mumblecore indie movement, he made a right turn of sorts a few years back. Opting for bigger stars and similarly simple premises, he’s found more acclaim than ever before. Between ... READ MORE

The Teaser Trailer for “Thor: Ragnarok” is an absolute hoot

Tue, Apr 11 2017


Within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the two Thor films have been among the most forgettable. They’re not bad, but they lack personality and the fun of the rest of the MCU. Well, as you’ll see with this Teaser Trailer that debuted yesterday, Thor: Ragnarok certainly seeks to change all of that. As will become apparent, there& ... READ MORE
