Kristen Stewart shines in the sci-fi love story “Equals”

Slowly but surely, Kristen Stewart has been becoming one of our most interesting young actresses. At the same time, filmmaker Drake Doremus has been crafting some under the radar yet memorable work, namely with Like Crazy and Breathe In. Now, they’ve come together for Equals, a science fiction romance opening[...]

‘Ghostbusters’ is an excellent re-invention of the classic franchise

It was always going to be a tough task to reboot the Ghostbusters as an entirely new franchise. Basically, you had to please fans of the original while opening it up to a whole next generation of potential audience members. This week, the product of that experiment opens in a[...]

Hollywood Contenders: Looking at potential Best Director contenders

As you fine folks all know from last year as well as my return article late last week, it’s one thing to read early Academy Award predictions at this point in the year in order to see what folks like myself think will happen six or so months from now,[...]

“Captain Fantastic” is one of the year’s most pleasant surprises

You often have to take praise that comes from the Sundance Film Festival with a grain of salt. That being said, when a title goes from Sundance to the Cannes Film Festival, that’s a sign that we have quality on our hands. This movie wound up blowing me away when[...]

This week brings an adorable bit of animation in “The Secret Life of Pets”

I don’t see nearly enough animation. For someone who sees about 350 movies a year, sometimes I barely seen a half dozen cartoons, and that’s kind of shameful. I usually hit the main Academy Award hopefuls and a few random ones besides that, but I slack when it comes to[...]

Aaron Eckhart has plum supporting roles in “Bleed for This” and “Sully”

Late last week, we got two Trailers for what appear to be serious Academy Award contenders in Bleed for This and Sully. They have almost nothing in common, except for one actor…Aaron Eckhart. He’s a main supporting player in both films, with potential Oscar consideration on the horizon. Eckhart has[...]

“Cafe Society”, “Captain Fantastic”, and “Ghostbusters”: Films to see in July

Happy Fourth of July ladies and gentlemen! It sounds odd in my head though, if I’m being honest. Does it actually feel like it’s already July folks? Just yesterday, I felt like the summer movie season was only beginning, but now we’re knee deep in it. So far, it hasn’t[...]

The Best of the First Half of 2016

Time just freaking flies, doesn’t it? We’re now in July and officially in the second half of the year, which means one thing…it’s time for my mid year look at the best of the first half! As of today, July 1st, I’ve seen only a movie or two below the[...]

The Academy has invited 683 new members to join their ranks

Yesterday afternoon, the ranks of Oscar voters grew substantially, with some welcome diversity added in for good measure. Yes, the Academy sent out invitations for new membership about 24 hours ago, with 683 names getting the coveted tap on the proverbial shoulder. Again, what made it so interesting to note[...]

Looking at potential Best Picture contenders

We’re coming to the very end of June folks. Much like I said last year at the start of July, it’s one thing to read early Academy Award predictions to see what folks like myself think will happen at the end of the year, but it’s another thing entirely to[...]
