“Carol” and “Spotlight”: Independent Spirit Award nominations announced

The year marches on! Yesterday, the Film Independent Spirit Award nominations were announced, marking another point in the awards season. Though not exactly a perfect barometer for Oscar, it can actually do some good in seeing which indie contenders are sitting in a position of strength. This year, it was[...]

“Brooklyn” and “Carol” Seek to Bring 1950s New York to the Top of the Oscar Race for Best Visual Effects

Last week, I wrote about how visual effects can help an audience escape into another world in a film. A movie’s sets can do the same thing, convincing the audience that it is in the same world as the characters, regardless of that world’s time period or geographic location. Indeed,[...]

Pixar has another horse in the Best Animated Feature race with “The Good Dinosaur”

Yesterday, I got a look at Pixar’s other contender this year in The Good Dinosaur, and let me tell you…2015 is a good year for the studio. Sure, Inside Out is getting a bit of Best Picture buzz and has been called one of the best Pixar films in some[...]

Hollywood Contenders – Looking at the Short Film categories

If there’s a trio of categories that aren’t given the respect that they deserve (or frankly, any respect at all), it’s the short film categories. Be it Best Animated Short, Best Documentary Short, or Best Live Action Short, they all are mostly ignored by the masses, especially when the first[...]

Sylvester Stallone in “Creed”: Ranking the films in the “Rocky” franchise

On Friday, one of the most shockingly great movies of the year opens in Creed, the sequel/spinoff to Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky series. I’ll have a full on article about that one in a few days, but today I wanted to pay tribute to the franchise in a way by actually[...]

The Sundance Film Festival announces their first 2016 titles, including Kevin Smith’s “Yoga Hosers”

There’s no place quite like Park City, Utah during the Sundance Film Festival. I’ve been lucky enough to attend and it’s really something to behold. The fest is this bustling adventure in a small mountain town, filled to the brim with independent films of all types. It also takes place[...]

A Second November Oscar Predictions Update – 1. Leonardo DiCaprio – The Revenant, 2. Matt Damon – The Martian, 3. Michael Fassbender – Steve Jobs, 4. Eddie Redmayne – The Danish Girl, 5. Michael Caine – Youth

Somehow, we’re almost done with the month of November. There’s only about six weeks or so left in 2015, which means the awards season is in full swing. As you all know, we’re awaiting the final big three releases of the year in The Hateful Eight, Joy, and The Revenant[...]

Hollywood Contenders – Is “Spotlight” really the one to beat in Best Picture?

There isn’t a whole lot that pundits can agree up on in regards to the Oscar race right now, but one thing seems to be that Spotlight is the one to beat currently in Best Picture. Tom McCarthy’s film is in a great position right now, as you’ll see in[...]

Hollywood Contenders – Can “Secret in their Eyes” be an awards friendly remake?

The word “remake” is a dirty word to critics, but it doesn’t always have to be the case. Once in a while, something even becomes an awards player, like when Martin Scorsese took Infernal Affairs, remade it as The Departed, and won the Oscar for Best Picture, along with his[...]

Joseph Gordon-Levitt: His best performances to date

Simply put, it’s hard to find a more charming up and coming A-lister in Hollywood right now than Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He is one of the industries most uniquely talented actors, with an eye towards filmmaking as well. This week, he goes the raunchy buddy comedy route while mixing in the[...]
