Richard Linklater continues to be one of the most exciting filmmakers in the business

It was just about two years ago when filmmaker Richard Linklater finally unveiled his long brewing passion project Boyhood to the world and finally became the awards magnet that many thought he would eventually turn into. The thing about Linklater is, no matter what he’s currently up to, he has[...]

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” has a record setting box office haul

Over the holiday weekend, audiences turned out in droves for the long awaited matchup/team-up on film between The Dark Knight and the Man of Steel. Yes, the last few days saw Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice make a ton of money at the box office, so much so that[...]

“I Saw the Light” is another would be Oscar biopic

Back in the midst of 2015, it seemed like the Hank Williams biopic I Saw the Light was all set to be a big Academy Award player. Considering how small this week’s platform release of the film is, as well as its middling festival circuit reception, that seems less than[...]

Ethan Hawke hits all the right notes in “Born to Be Blue”

If you’re anything like me, you’re a pretty big fan of Ethan Hawke. Over the years, Hawke has been among the most consistent and interesting actors in Hollywood. He floats in and out of the studio system at ease, keeping a presence both in blockbusters occasionally as well as often[...]

Miles Teller shines in the long delayed comedy “Get a Job”

For literally years now, I’d been looking forward to seeing Get a Job, the new (or newish, in this case now) film from Dylan Kidd. Last week, after an incredibly long delay/time spent sitting on the shelf, I finally saw the flick, which will be hitting theaters this Friday. I’m[...]

Where does “Spotlight” rank as a Best Picture winner?

In case you’re living under an Oscar related rock, late last month Spotlight won Best Picture at the 88th Academy Awards. I think that Oscar voters made an excellent selection, choosing the film over its closest competitors The Big Short, Mad Max: Fury Road, and The Revenant. For today, I[...]

“Midnight Special” is the latest effort from emerging master Jeff Nichols

Slowly but surely, filmmaker Jeff Nichols is becoming one of the more popular names in independent cinema. In fact, some pundits already claim that he’s one of the new masters of the medium. This week, he takes his first step towards the mainstream with the science fiction film Midnight Special,[...]

Melissa Rauch showcases her comedic chops in “The Bronze”

If any of you are fans of The Big Bang Theory, then you probably also are a fan of Melissa Rauch. She has been an asset on that show for some time now as the squeaky voiced Bernadette Rostenkowski, but this weekend, Rauch shows off her skills in a whole[...]
