National Board of Review goes big for “Green Book” and “A Star Is Born”

Yesterday, hot on the heels of the Gotham Awards being handed out the night before, the National Board of Review has chimed in. With the New York Film Critics Circle also announcing tomorrow (updated now to include NYFCC at the bottom of the page), we’re full on into the precursor[...]

“Amazing Grace” pays tribute to Aretha Franklin

Any kind of film that’s been lost to the ages fascinates me. There are a few notorious ones, though most ultimately see the light of day before all is said and done. Up until recently, the 1972 concert documentary about Aretha Franklin, Amazing Grace, was thought to be under lock[...]

Could “Vice” be this year’s late breaking party crasher for awards season?

At this point in the year, it can sometimes feel like the Oscar contenders are set in stone, save for an unseen X factor or two. It all can come down to a few last minute films that seek to upend the awards season. Yesterday, I saw such a thing.[...]

A new update to Academy Award predictions for November

Howdy folks. Hopefully everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving feast and are recovering from Tryptophan overload. As a way to move on from Turkey Day (and distract from Black Friday shopping), I’ve got a whole new set of Oscar predictions to share with you! Yes, it’s that time once again. With precursors[...]

Olivia Colman, Emma Stone, and Rachel Weisz are a deliciously dark trio in “The Favourite”

Nobody is making movies these days quite like Yorgos Lanthimos is making. Throughout his career, he has been doing things in such a unique way, it doesn’t even compare. Alps, Dogtooth, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, The Lobster…these are specific films coming from a distinctive voice. This week, he[...]

“Ralph Breaks the Internet” is a clever and winning sequel for Disney

A few years back, Wreck-It Ralph was a nice little change of pace for and from Disney. The non Pixar outings can sometimes be a step down, Frozen notwithstanding. So, that cartoon being as good as it was, that was a nice surprise. Now, today brings us the inevitable sequel,[...]

Alfonso Cuarón tells a deeply personal story with absolute precision in “Roma”

You rarely see such an intimate tale painted on such a large canvas. In telling a story based on his own youth, filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón has made an epic movie about the women in his life. If that sounds a bit unusual, once you see the movie, it all makes[...]

“Creed II” is an outstanding sequel and one of the year’s best films

Creed was a major surprise. Seriously. As much as I love the Rocky franchise, was there any reason to assume that what was essentially Rocky VII, just without a focus on the character we know and love, would be a success? Sure, it had an exciting young actor at the[...]

Strong showings for “Eighth Grade” and “You Were Never Really Here” highlight the Independent Spirit Award nominations

Moments ago, the Film Independent Spirit Awards announced their nominations for 2018. Essentially the Oscars of indie film, this is a time when certain movies can see their only true moment in the sun. As you’ll see below, the nominees this year represent both some major Academy Award players as[...]

Review: Round-Up: “At Eternity’s Gate”, “The Clovehitch Killer”, “Jonathan”, and “The Last Race”

For this week’s review round-up, it’s a foursome! The quartet of titles today are a real mixed bag, which happens. We have two misfires, one mild recommendation, and a mixed bag that I really hemmed and hawed about in terms of a thumbs up or thumbs down. You’ll see which[...]
