“Anomalisa” is the best animated film of the year and one of 2015’s best films overall

It’s always a pleasure to really be blown away by a film, even more so when you weren’t prepared for it to happen. I actually even experienced something truly rare. As the credits began to roll on Duke Johnson and Charlie Kaufman’s stop motion animated flick, I was shocked that[...]

Hollywood Contenders: Updated Academy Award Predictions

As always at this point in the season, it’s time for my weekly Oscar predictions update. The Academy Awards are only about two months away, with nominations being announced in around three weeks or so, which makes this truly crunch time.
