A one of a kind spectacle is showcased in the Final Trailer for “Avengers: Infinity War”

On Friday, Marvel dropped a Trailer that I literally decided was worth taking the weekend to fully process. Of course, we’re talking about the Final Trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, which ends another phase for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, though it’s much more than that. It’s a one of a[...]

Where do the most recent group of Academy Award winners rank all time?

As we begin to fully focus on 2018 releases and eventually what the 2019 awards season will be like, a little more about the most recent Oscars is still required. Mainly, a look at how the winners stack up with previous ones. This time around, I’m tying in all of[...]

Ten Filmmakers overdue for their first Oscar nomination

Carrying on with one of the yearly series that I like to do on the site, we’re talking overdue writers and directors. Yes, I wrote last week about actors deserving of Academy Award nominations, so now it’s time to turn attention to filmmakers. Actors and actresses are the sexier group,[...]

Zoe Kazan: Which actors and actresses are due for their first Oscar nomination?

Time to start up another annual tradition here on the site. Every year during the early parts of the season, basically post Oscars, I like to do a post about who is overdue to get either an Academy Award nomination or a win. Last year was no different, so we’re[...]

Ava DuVernay tackles tentpole filmmaking with “A Wrinkle in Time”

It’s positively refreshing to see a director get a chance to work their way up to a blockbuster. Too often these days, one indie hit gets a hotshot filmmaker (let’s face it, always a white dude) the next franchise to helm. It’s rare that this sort of work is a[...]

Continuing on analysis of the Academy Awards now that the show is over, today will be a look at the highlights and lowlights of the actual telecast. As always, there were great moments and some not so great moments, though the former definitely outweighed the latter. Anyone not named Donald[...]
