Contenders from the Toronto Film Festival

Time is just flying on by, isn’t it folks? Over this past weekend, the Toronto International Film Festival (or TIFF) began to wrap up, giving out awards and setting up some potential contenders for the impending Oscar season. This came hot on the heels of the Venice Film Festival launching[...]

“The Magnificent Seven” remake looks to bring back the Western

Outside of Quentin Tarantino, it seems like no one is really attempting to do Westerns anymore. This week, one does hit in the remake of The Magnificent Seven. This film, the latest take on the material, seeks to not just follow in those footsteps, but in Tarantino’s as well, echoing[...]

R.I.P. Curtis Hanson

Last night, the cinematic world lost one of its own. Filmmaker Curtis Hanson passed away at the age of 71. The cause of death has been placed as natural causes. Hanson worked in the industry for well over 40 years, writing and directing movies that will stand the test of[...]

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt shine in the “Passengers” Trailer

There are few more charming potential romantic pairings right now in Hollywood than Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. Put them together and I’d see them in just about anything. Luckily, their next project happens to be the hotly anticipated Passengers, which has been floating (no pun intended) around the industry[...]

“La La Land” takes the Audience Award at the Toronto Film Festival

Hollywood Contenders: New Oscar Predictions for September

Well, here we are. It’s the first set of Academy Award predictions for the month of September, when things get really interesting. Yes, now we can look at what Oscar could be thinking based upon, at least in part, what the fall festival season has brought us. Now, buzz from[...]

Natalie Portman and “Jackie” are the Oscar race’s newest contenders

Every once in a blue moon, a hunch of mine seems to pay off. A few times over the past month or so, I’ve listed Jackie as a dark horse Academy Award contender across the board, and not just for Natalie Portman’s turn as the former First Lady. It has[...]

“Snowden” is an important and entertaining biopic

About a week ago, I caught a screening of Snowden, but the embargo was still in place. Now, I can more comfortably say that it’s quite good, easily Oliver Stone’s best film in some time. Not only that, it’s a top notch role for and performance by Joseph Gordon-Levitt in[...]

Ben Affleck’s “Live by Night” gets a real stylish Trailer

Late last week, we got our first true glimpse of Ben Affleck’s latest directorial outing. As a fan of all three films Affleck has made as a director, Live by Night had already been on my radar, but this was a nice reminder that it’s not far out now. Scheduled[...]

Emma Stone, “Jackie”, and “Nocturnal Animals” highlight the Venice Film Festival winners

Over the weekend, the 73rd annual Venice Film Festival handed out their awards for 2016, with a few of the expected major Oscar hopefuls showing up among their winners. They included a few of the contenders being heavily mentioned not only at Venice, but over at the Telluride Film Festival[...]
