Alec Baldwin is having a career resurgence on the big and small screen

Tue, Mar 28 2017


There’s something inherently pleasurable about seeing actors or actresses see a second or third act to their career bring them to previously unseen heights. For Alec Baldwin, he’s seen his career begin as an A-list movie star, then transition to huge television icon. Now, he’s back on the small screen, while testing out ... READ MORE

Scarlett Johansson continues to prove her action hero chops with “Ghost in the Shell”

Mon, Mar 27 2017


There are two types of Scarlett Johansson roles that we’ve been getting over the past few years. One is affecting work in things like Her or Under the Skin, while the other is in action films, both of the Marvel ilk, as well as things like this week’s release Ghost in the Shell. I don’t mean this as an insult though. Joh ... READ MORE

Oscar Isaac and Kristen Stewart: Who’s due for their first Oscar nomination?

Fri, Mar 24 2017

This is something interesting. Every year during the early parts of the season, I like to post about who is overdue to get an Academy Award nomination or win. Last year was no different. There’s always a ton of people deserving of attention but not receiving of it. What’s unique this time around is that no one received a nomi ... READ MORE

“Life” is an A-list filled B-movie science fiction tale

Thu, Mar 23 2017


There will always be films that exist as a way of paying tribute to a classic that’s come before it. In the next few days, a new one is hitting screens. On Friday, Life opens and it hopes to be a new version to an old hit. The cast here though is impeccable, led by the A-list team of Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds. They’re ... READ MORE

Can early year releases truly compete for Oscar attention?

Wed, Mar 22 2017


One of the more unfair aspects of the awards season is that it truly isn’t a 12 month season. Only certain months tend to have Oscar contenders released in them. If you want Academy Award consideration, the early months of a given year are essentially no man’s land. The list of films nominated from January, February, and/or Ma ... READ MORE

Woody Harrelson’s potentially big 2017 begins with “Wilson”

Tue, Mar 21 2017


The first part of any given year is usually pretty dry when it comes to awards contenders. As such, a lot of the time speculation surrounds who might end up in play, should their upcoming films be worthy of contention. Once such actor with a decent sized slate in 2017 is Woody Harrelson. Here is a man with Academy Award nominations to his ... READ MORE

Some of the top prizes went to movies like Baby Driver, The Big Sick, Dealt, The Light of the Moon, and Mr. Roosevelt, along with Judd Apatow’s surprise music documentary ... READ MORE

“The Post”: Oscar predictions for March

Fri, Mar 17 2017

As a general rule, I don’t usually update the initial year in advance predictions so quickly, but this is a special situation. Not only is there a new big time potential contender looking to come our way in 2017 now, it’s also replacing what was formerly seen as a major player. That sort of disruption right at the start is a ... READ MORE

Terrence Malick continues his surge of productivity with “Song to Song”

Thu, Mar 16 2017


Once upon a time, Terrence Malick was a filmmaker who took a legendarily long amount of time between projects. He has since shrunk his turnaround time significantly, becoming, at least by his standards, rather prolific. Sadly, that’s also led to diminishing returns, at least in this writer’s humble opinion. This week, Malick u ... READ MORE
