Oscar Predictions for the month of May, 2015

Almost five full months into the 2015 movie season and I’m happy to report that we know zilch about the Oscar race. Why happy? Well, it means there’s plenty of fun guesswork to be done, and I’m all about that. The Cannes Film Festival has gotten underway and that can[...]

“Mad Max: Fury Road” looks to take its place as one of the best action movies of the decade

There’s no way to get around this fact…”Mad” Max Rockatansky is coming back to the public consciousness. In just a few days, audiences are going to be blown away by Mad Max: Fury Road, the latest installment in/reboot of George Miller’s iconic franchise. This is the fourth time that writer/director[...]

Ethan Hawke might be the most underrated actor in Hollywood

I don’t know if many people notice, but there’s almost nothing in the film industry that Ethan Hawke can’t do…and do well. He’s been an awards mainstay of late, as well as being someone who Oscar has nominated far more often than you probably realize. This week, he makes another[...]

Meryl Streep: Trailer drops for “Ricki and the Flash”

As is almost always the case, it seems like we’re going to have a Meryl Streep performance in contention for another Academy Award nomination. Luckily for us though, this year it appears like Streep has a bit of a change up in store here, as opposed to overly serious melodrama[...]

Nominees for the Critics Choice Television Awards include “24: Live Another Day” and many more

Yesterday, the nominations for the 5th annual Critics Choice Television Awards were announced. The sister group to the Critics Choice Movie Awards, this is what could be looked at as a bit of an Emmy Awards precursor, if you will. I’m not exactly an expert when it comes to TV[...]

Arnold Schwarzenegger tries his hand at drama with “Maggie”

Ever since he left office as the two term governor of California and returned to the acting world, I’ve been keeping a close eye on the film choices of Arnold Schwarzenegger. He’s slowly gone from being a wise cracking killing machine (sometimes literally) to someone more contemplative of the toll[...]

Louis C.K.: the next actor/comedian to become a successful filmmaker?

For a couple of years now, I’ve been waiting for the news that Louis C.K. would be taking the plunge back into the filmmaking world after one misguided attempt a while back (Pooty Tang, for those of you who don’t know). Well, it’s apparently coming soon, as he is planning[...]

“Suicide Squad” is shaping up to be one of the most interesting upcoming superhero movies

At the very tail end of the weekend, filmmaker David Ayer unveiled his first look at most of the costumed cast of Suicide Squad, his DC superhero/anti-hero/villain movie that’s scheduled to follow Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice next year.
