Why the Academy shouldn’t go back to five Best Picture nominees

One of the most fiercely debated subjects when it comes to the Oscars, aside from the actual films and performances in contention, is what the Academy should do with the size of their Best Picture slates. Recently, rumors have been swirling that AMPAS members have been considering again adjusting the[...]

When will Liam Neeson go back to consistently making awards contenders?

Like many of you, I was pretty surprised and more than a little bit delighted when Liam Neeson made the next act in his illustrious career an action packed one. No one expected Taken to be a hit, or as satisfyingly enjoyable as it was, but it signaled a new[...]

“It Follows” is the best horror film in years and the rare one worthy of awards

When it comes to the Academy, the genre the least seem to embrace (give or take animation, though that at least has its own category) is horror. With the exception of The Silence of the Lambs, no fright flick has been nominated for Best Picture, and while that’s not going[...]

Who should produce the next Academy Award ceremony?

If the rumors are to be believed, not only will the Oscars have a new host next year, but apparently also new producers as well. Yes, yesterday there was some buzz that Neil Meron and Craig Zadan would not be returning to produce the next Academy Award telecast. That comes[...]

2015 Tribeca Film Festival Announces the Films in the Spotlight, Midnight, and Special Screenings Sections

Each year, I look forward to the Tribeca Film Festival, which is slowly but surely growing in stature and importance. A relatively new fest, it is establishing a vibe that’s somewhat of a cross between the New York Film Festival and the Sundance Film Festival. Small but on the rise,[...]

R.I.P. Albert Maysles

Earlier today, the legendary documentarian Albert Maysles passed away at the age of 88. A few years ago, I was lucky enough to briefly meet Maysles at a dinner and found him to be a very kind man, so it saddens me to report on his passing. The man, along[...]

2015 MTV Movie Award nominations are more respectable than usual

Yesterday, the MTV Movie Award nominations were announced for 2015. Normally, that’s not the sort of thing that I care even a little bit about, but lo and behold…the films and performances cited happen to be far more respectable than normal. The nominations were led by The Fault in Our[...]

Ethan Hawke flexes a new muscle with the documentary “Seymour: An Introduction”

I’m not sure Ethan Hawke gets the credit that he deserves. Not only is he a well respected actor, but he’s a novelist and a filmmaker as well, having put out narrative features previously, and now a documentary. Yes, this Friday, his doc Seymour: An Introduction hits theaters, and it’s[...]

Who’s still overdue for their first Academy Award nominations/wins?

Last year, I wrote a pair of pieces looking at the folks in Hollywood who were due for their first Oscar nominations or the their first wins. At the most recent Academy Award ceremony, two of those names got moved off of the list, so I wanted to take a[...]

“House of Cards”: The Best Show on Netflix?

Over the weekend, Netflix dropped season three of their hit show House of Cards, allowing viewers (including yours truly) to binge watch another 13 episodes of the political drama. Since its debut, the show, which came from the mind of scribe Beau Willimon and stars the duo of Kevin Spacey[...]
