“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “10 Cloverfield Lane”: Films to see in March

It really doesn’t feel like it’s already March, does it? The Oscars have come and gone, leaving us really into the thick of 2016. The end of this month will mark the end of the first quarter of the year. Go figure. Anyway, this is coming a bit late, but[...]

Year in Advance Oscar predictions

If it’s Friday, it must be time for updated predictions, right? I know, the Academy Awards were less than a week ago, but year in advance predictions wait for no man, so here I am! Much like last year, I’m hopping on board with 2016 release predictions right after the[...]

“Knight of Cups” gives audiences another Terrence Malick film to ponder

There are very few filmmakers with a more singular style out there than the one and only Terrence Malick. This week, he offers up another unique cinematic experience with Knight of Cups, sure to be a divisive little movie. This is part of his new, slightly grittier fare, and it’s[...]

Tina Fey becomes a leading lady in “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot”

Without question, Tina Fey is an A-list comedy actress, but I’m not sure how many people realize how good she is at more serious fare. She’s gotten opportunities before, but Fey really gets a chance to shine in Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, which is hitting theaters this week. It’s a dramedy[...]

‘Spotlight’ is the big winner at the Independent Spirit Awards

The night before it would go on to win Best Picture at the Oscars, Spotlight wound up having a great night at the Spirit Awards. Yes, Tom McCarthy’s film all but swept the Spirits, beating back what originally seemed like a strong challenge from Todd Haynes’ Carol, not to mention[...]

The 88th Academy Awards offered up surprise after surprise

Wow. That’s about as appropriate a one word reaction to what happened last night as anything else. After a full year basically of predictions, guessing, analysis, and precursors, it all came down to waiting for Morgan Freeman to announce the Best Picture winner at the 88th Oscars. Recent events had[...]

The Most Predictable Oscars – The 88th Academy Awards

By Michael Russnow As a show it was middling, opening with an attractive display of globes emblazoned with “Courage,” “Talent,” “Heart” and “Passion,” then a film montage before emcee Chris Rock hit the stage. As someone who didn’t appreciate Rock as host 11 years ago it was a bit surprising to see[...]

A final set of Oscar predictions

This is it, ladies and gentlemen, the moment of truth for a prognosticator. Almost a full year of musing on the Academy Award race has led here. We’re now just a few days out from the Oscars being held, with a new slate of winners set to enter the record[...]

Predicting the Independent Spirit Awards

While it’s true that we’re just about 72 hours out from the Oscars, we’ve also got the Film Independent Spirit Awards coming in just about 48 hours or so. Personally, I find the Spirit Awards to sometimes be preferable to the Academy Awards, since they offer up a chance for[...]

“The Big Short” vs “The Revenant” vs “Spotlight” in the race for Best Picture

As we get down to the final days until the Academy Awards, it’s obviously still worth focusing in on a few of the races that might still be up in the air, concluding now with the biggest one. Yes, the competition for Best Picture. Depending on how generous you’re feeling[...]
