WGA winners include “Arrival” and “Moonlight”

Yesterday evening, the Writers Guild of America handed out their awards, marking one of the season’s final precursor stops and last guild ceremony. As with many of the guilds this year, a slight curveball was tossed our way, namely in that one potential frontrunner is nominated in a different category[...]

Penultimate Oscar predictions

The Academy Awards are in just over a week, ladies and gentlemen. My how time flies, right? With the show coming so soon, there can be a rush to finalize predictions and try to hold course until the end. That’s not my way though, as I play around with my[...]

2016 films that will stand the test of time

One of the things I like to contemplate as a film year wraps up, right around the Oscars, is which of the contenders will actually be remembered years down the line. Often, the Best Picture winner at the Academy Awards is soon forgotten about, seen as an underwhelming consensus choice[...]

“A Cure for Wellness” is a beautiful looking and haunting mess

Normally in the early months of a given year, the mainstream wide releases leave a ton to be desired. Sure, there are decent enough ones if you look hard enough, but they’re usually safe genre outings, with more often than not the quality movies being independent releases.

Potential upsets to consider for Oscar night

If it’s a Friday during the awards season, you know what time it is. Yes, it’s time for a new set of Academy Award predictions! We’re now only a few short weeks away from the Oscars, so the precursors are beginning to wrap up, leading to some definitive frontrunners. There[...]

“The LEGO Batman Movie” is a surprising delight

A lack of expectations can sometimes be a film’s secret weapon. It’s not that I thought The LEGO Batman Movie would be bad, but it just wasn’t initially on my radar to any real degree. Go figure then, since this probably my favorite movie of 2017 so far. It works[...]

VES Awards are dominated by “The Jungle Book”

Last night, the Visual Effects Society handed out their awards at their annual gathering. It was mainly a good night for The Jungle Book, which took the top prize, known as Outstanding Visual Effects in a Photoreal Feature. It beat back Doctor Strange, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,[...]

Where does the race for Best Picture stand?

We’re closing in on the Academy Awards folks. In just a few short weeks, a new film will be crowned the Best Picture of the year by Oscar voters. At this point, the Directors Guild of America, the Producers Guild of America, and the Screen Actors Guild of America, the[...]
