“The Martian”: Oscar Predictions for June 2015

I’d been planning all week to write about Ridley Scott and Matt Damon’s The Martian, which debuted an incredible Trailer at the start of the week, but decided to hold off and incorporate it into my new Oscar predictions update. Why? Well, mainly because the film appears to be exceeding[...]

Ranking the films in the “Jurassic Park” franchise

Tomorrow, audiences across the globe are going to be treated to the latest “Jurassic” film when Jurassic World hits theaters. No longer under embargo, I’m allowed to say that it’s pretty enjoyable, if really rather ridiculous. The movie isn’t the best of the franchise, but it’s nowhere near the worst[...]

“Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” represents perfect summer counter-programming

Around this time last year, I basically fell head over heels in love with The Fault in Our Stars, the rare Young Adult (or YA) adaptation that really worked in my eyes. Well, fancy my surprise when I saw Me and Earl and the Dying Girl last week, a film[...]

“Jurassic World” arrives to restart a classic franchise

It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t consider Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park to be an overt classic. You can find people who don’t care much for either of the sequels, but the first one is almost undisputedly one of the best blockbusters ever. Now, I can’t actually say much about[...]

Ranking the films of Cameron Crowe

I’m a big fan of positivity, especially when it comes to the film industry, since it seems to be at a premium most of the time. Two weeks ago, filmmaker Cameron Crowe’s latest movie Aloha opened to rather poor reviews, some of which began to look back and degrade his[...]

Steven Spielberg’s “Bridge of Spies” gets a compelling Trailer

It’s been a pretty good week for Trailers, I must say that. We’ve already gotten looks at a number of potential Academy Award players, including Everest and The Walk, but now Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks throw their hat into the ring with Bridge of Spies. This dramatic Cold War[...]

Melissa McCarthy cements herself as a member of the comedy A-list with “Spy”

Ever since she burst on the scene in an instantly iconic way with her Academy Award nominated supporting turn in Bridesmaids, I’ve felt that most filmmakers haven’t known how to use Melissa McCarthy properly. Some do, but the vast majority don’t, with a notable exception being none other than Paul[...]

Ten Best Performances of John Cusack’s career

Following up on yesterday’s article on Love & Mercy, which features one of the best John Cusack performances to date, I wanted to look at his whole career and list his all time best work. As such, a new top ten list is here for your reading pleasure. This one[...]

John Cusack and Paul Dano have two of their best roles to date in “Love & Mercy”

One of my all time favorite actors happens to be John Cusack. Over the past decade or so, one of my newer favorites is Paul Dano. As such, the concept of the two of them in a film together pumped me up from the minute that they were cast in[...]

From HBO to the Big Screen: “Entourage” is back

As someone who doesn’t watch a whole lot of television, it’s rare for me to actually be looking forward to seeing a film that’s basically just an extended version of a TV show. A notable exception to that, however, happens to be Entourage, which hits screens this weekend after a[...]
