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 nomin ... 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

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.

“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

“T2: Trainspotting” is the sequel many fans have been waiting for

Wed, Mar 15 2017


A staple of mid 90’s independent breakthrough cinema, Trainspotting has long been a movie that seemed poised to get a sequel. After all, author Irvine Welsh did write a sequel to his novel of the same name, that one called Porno. This week, the sequel does arrive, though this is with the slightly more multiplex friendly title of T2: ... READ MORE

“The Disaster Artist” blows away SXSW

Tue, Mar 14 2017


Almost like a surprise birthday present yesterday, ecstatic reviews came pouring in from South by Southwest (or SXSW) about a film that perhaps is the one I truly most want to see this year. It’s The Disaster Artist, an adaptation of the book of the same name, about the making of legendarily bad film The Room. Treated to a work in p ... READ MORE
