RIP Jonathan Demme

Yesterday, the cinematic world and world at large lost one of the most versatile directors around. Jonathan Demme, known as a filmmaker who could do just about anything, passed away from cancer at the age of 73. He was the sort of artist who never did the same thing twice.[...]

“Kingsman: The Golden Circle” presents a jam packed First Trailer

A really nice surprise a few years ago was just how much of a blast the comic book spy flick Kingsman: The Secret Service was. Now, we have a sequel on our hands in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, with a First Trailer dropping this week to tease out what’s in[...]

A new and updated ranking of the films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Next week, the Marvel Cinematic Universe will stretch into deep space once again with the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which could be an even bigger hit than the first one. I’ll be going in depth on the sequel at some point next week, but today is[...]

Tom Hanks continues to make interesting choices

There’s almost two Tom Hanks on display in movie theaters these days. There’s the one taking the lead in prestige fare like he’s always done. For example, there was Sully just last year, with potentially another big time turn to be found later on in 2017 with Steven Spielberg’s The[...]

Paul Thomas Anderson and Christopher Nolan: Filmmakers most overdue to win an Oscar

This week, he makes what might be his most mainstream flick possibly, an action comedy of sorts in Free Fire.[...]

Christian Bale brings his A-list talents to “The Promise”

Given the right role, it’s distinctly possible that there’s nobody better in the business than Christian Bale. He can just own the screen and dominate a film. There’s a reason why he’s an Academy Award winner and slowly becoming someone that voters seem to look for a reason to cite.[...]

Oscar Isaac might finally break through with the Academy in 2017

It seems like every year there’s a reason to revisit Oscar Isaac and the work that he’s done so far. This year, he may actually get that elusive first Academy Award nomination if things break the right way, but regardless of that, he remains an incredibly exciting actor. Oscar wise[...]

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” unveils a Teaser Trailer

Late last week, during Star Wars Celebration, the expected happened. LucasFilm and Disney dropped a Teaser Trailer for Episode VIII in the Star Wars saga. Yes, we’ve now seen footage from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. At the end of this piece, if you haven’t yet, you’ll be able to[...]

Judd Apatow and Kevin Smith: Filmmakers most overdue their first Oscar nomination

Continuing on with a yearly series I like to do on those deserving of Academy Award wins or nominations, it’s time to turn attention to filmmakers. Actors and actresses are the sexier group, but writers and directors are the backbone of the industry. There are plenty who have never been[...]
