Trailer for “Beautiful Boy” suggests an awards player

Last week, a fairly baity Trailer hit the web. It’s for a film called Beautiful Boy, which hopes to be a big time Oscar contender. The material certainly suggests as much. Having Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet in the lead roles, based on notable and best selling memoirs (yes, more[...]

“Eighth Grade” and “Sorry to Bother You”: Movies to see in July

Welcome to July! Now that we’ve full on entered the second half of the year, the films will again start to take two very distinct shapes. On one end of the spectrum will be the summer blockbusters, which have already been going on in earnest, while on the other side[...]

The Best of the First Half of 2018

Here’s something fun. Folks, as you see me write each and every single year around this point (either the final days of June or first days of July), time really flies, doesn’t it? We’re just about to hit July and officially enter into the second half of the year. That[...]

Spotlight on the Stars: Jessica Chastain

The way Jessica Chastain burst on to the scene, it’s hard now to envision a cinematic landscape that doesn’t involve her. One of Hollywood’s biggest stars, she mixes charisma, activism, and sheer talent to be one of the most high profile A-listers in the business. Already a favorite for the[...]

“Leave No Trace” is another compelling showcase for Ben Foster

There’s no shortage of underrated actors in the movie industry. Frankly, Hollywood is lousy with them. Few are as underrated as Ben Foster, however. Immensely talented and shockingly dedicated to not taking mere paycheck jobs, Foster offers up something special. This week, he again puts forward his huge talents in[...]

“Sicario: Day of the Soldado” is an unlikely yet winning sequel

We certainly didn’t need a sequel to Sicario. That top notch procedural worked quite well as a stand alone movie. Luckily, despite Sicario: Day of the Soldado being unnecessary, it’s also way better than it has any right to be. Opening this week, the film isn’t the shot of near[...]

“The King” is a compelling documentary that asks big questions

Over the weekend, a new film came out that, below the radar, manages to be one of the year’s more interesting titles. It’s a little documentary from filmmaker Eugene Jarecki called The King. Having made the film festival circuit over the past year or so, it’s a look at Elvis[...]

“A Star is Born” and “First Man”: Academy Award predictions for June

We’re approaching the second half of the year folks. Believe it or not, there’s only a little of a week left in the first half. In a matter of days, I’ll be posting my best of the first half, which is nuts. As such, with June almost in the rearview[...]

“Gotti” targets critics but has a disingenuous agenda

Normally, I don’t bother to cover poorly received films here. It’s easier to focus on the positive, at least outside of the awards race. However, this is a unique situation. The mob film Gotti opened last weekend, to some of 2018’s worst reviews. Well, some of in the sense that[...]

Trailer for “Creed II” continues the family legacy

This morning, the world saw the release of the First Trailer for the boxing sequel Creed II, the latest unlikely sequel in the long running Rocky franchise. A few years ago, the thought of more Rocky entries was greeted with a big eye roll. Now, in the shadow of Creed,[...]
