Hollywood Contenders – “The Revenant” reviews hit

Finally. After having seen The Revenant a few weeks ago and been under embargo from speaking about it, the veil of secrecy finally lifts. I’m in the same position with The Hateful Eight, embargo wise, but today I can talk about Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s latest. Surprising no one, this is[...]

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” gets an intense new Trailer

Late last night, a big new Trailer was dropped for next year’s giant superhero spectacle Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We’re only about three months out from this blockbuster, so it makes sense that Warner Brothers is really beginning to push it on us. Once we hit January, I[...]

An Interview with Jake Roberts: Can He Ride the “Brooklyn” Wave to a First Oscar Nomination for Best Film Editing?

John Crowley’s “Brooklyn” is currently delighting critics and audiences. Saoirse Ronan’s triumph yesterday at the New York Film Critics Circle is likely the beginning of a solid run for the film through Oscar season. The changing time periods, locations and moods required a sharp but subtle editor. Enter Jake Roberts,[...]

“Carol” scores big with the New York Film Critics Circle

It seems like every single day now there’s a new major precursor announcement, doesn’t it? Yesterday, the New York Film Critics Circle announced their awards for 2015, and Carol was the biggest winner of them all. It managed to take a large number of awards from the NYFCC, perhaps to[...]

Hollywood Contenders – The Best Documentary Feature short list reduces the Oscar hopefuls to 15

Last night, the short list for Best Documentary Feature was revealed, whittling down the field of contenders to just 15. As always, there were some obvious picks and some surprises (both in terms of what was chosen and what wasn’t), but I think the overall list is pretty strong now.[...]

“Anomalisa”, “The Good Dinosaur”, and “Inside Out” highlight the Annie Award nominations

Continuing the deluge of precursors that we’ve already seen drop this week, the Annie Awards have announced their nominations yesterday, with Pixar having perhaps their best day with the group ever. Not only did Inside Out lead the way in terms of nods, but The Good Dinosaur received a lot[...]

National Board of Review honors “Mad Max: Fury Road”, “The Martian”, and more

Just moments ago, the National Board of Review announced their 2015 awards. In a bit of surprise, Mad Max: Fury Road took their Best Film prize, while Matt Damon and Ridley Scott gave The Martian the best showing overall, taking Best Actor and Best Director, respectively. NBR’s winners are always[...]

“Spotlight” sweeps the 25th Gotham Awards

Last night, the 25th annual Gotham Awards held their ceremony in New York City and made an early claim to setting the precursor tone. As often the first group to not only put out nominations but announce their winners, they more or less can establish very early frontrunners when the[...]

Hollywood Contenders – Has “Youth” been underestimated?

I’ve been teasing it out for a few weeks, but I absolutely adored Youth. Paolo Sorrentino’s film is a beautiful feast for the eyes, incredibly well acted by the quartet of Michael Caine, Paul Dano, Jane Fonda, and Harvey Keitel, not to mention incredibly poignant. Reviews out of the Cannes[...]

Sight & Sound 2015 critics poll begins the rush of Top Ten lists

With the calendar about to turn to December, one thing you can count on is a ton of Ten Ten/Best of the Year lists beginning to come down the pike. From critics groups to guilds to various organizations and publications, now is the time to start feting the top titles[...]
