J.J. Abrams and Denis Villeneuve: Ten potential first time writer/director nominees for Oscar in 2015

Much like I’ve been saying, of the many storylines that begin during awards season, few are usually as compelling as the ones centered around who’s most due for an Academy Award. I think that it’s usually pretty satisfying to see a former bridesmaid finally become a bride, as it were.[...]

Roger Deakins offers up some of his very best cinematography in “Sicario”

There’s so much talent behind the film Sicario it’s almost scary. You have a cast that includes Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin, and Benicio del Toro, along with the supremely talented director Denis Villeneuve at the helm and the legendary DP Roger Deakins handling the cinematography. I’ve seen this movie twice[...]

“The Martian” launches itself as an awards hopeful at the Toronto Film Festival

For months, I’d been predicting The Martian to win a bunch of Oscars in my early looks at the race. Honestly, how I felt the nominations would go didn’t necessarily reflect that, but rather what I thought the ideal performance of this interesting title could be. Well, I wound[...]

“Steve Jobs”: Oscar predictions for September

Now that we’re well into the month of September, it’s time to kick predictions into high gear. It’ll be twice a month now in terms of updates, especially now that we’re also knee deep in the fall festival season. I love this time of year so much, which makes this[...]

“Sleeping with Other People” is one of the most charming films of 2015

When I first saw Sleeping with Other People back earlier this year at the Tribeca Film Festival, I knew that I’d seen something special. It wasn’t just a funny comedy, and it wasn’t just a touching romance. The film mixed both heart and laughter with a reality raunch, if you[...]

Sandra Bullock looks like a contender in the Trailer for “Our Brand is Crisis”

Yesterday, a Trailer dropped for Our Brand is Crisis, the political drama/satire hybrid that I’ve been predicting for Oscar attention all year. With it, we got our first real look at a film that could certainly liven up the impending awards season. David Gordon Green’s movie is getting a premiere[...]

Sam Smith will sing the theme song for the upcoming 007 film “Spectre”

When it comes to theatrical theme songs, it’s hard to beat the ones that begin the James Bond franchise. I’ve loved the franchise since childhood (it’s the sort of thing a son bonds over, no pun intended, with the older male members of his family), the songs included. There have[...]

Richard Gere is an under the radar Best Actor contender for “Time Out of Mind”

Last year at the New York Film Festival, I saw Richard Gere give an absolutely fantastic performance in the movie Time Out of Mind. I thought that Gere gave one of the best performances of the fest and would surely be in Oscar contention if the film came out. Well,[...]

Telluride and Venice launch festival debuts into the Oscar race

We always knew that the beginning of the fall festival season would launch a number of titles into the early Oscar race, but perhaps not to this level so far. Yes, over at the Telluride Film Festival and the Venice Film Festival, almost all of the high profile debuts have[...]

“The Hateful Eight”: Looking at potential Best Original Screenplay Contenders

Good afternoon folks! Today I’m continuing on down the line of the big eight categories and finishing them off with another writing one…Best Original Screenplay. It’s the last of the big eight categories today, though I’ll continue on in the weeks to come with a few more, at the very[...]
