It seems safe to assume that no one was expecting this out of comedian and actor turned filmmaker Bo Burnham. That’s nothing against him. It merely means that his first effort with crafting cinema is just that good. This week, Burnham makes his directing and writing debut with Eighth Grade,[...]

Are there any Oscar contenders from the first half of 2018?

We’ve now entered the second half of the year. 2018 so far has yet to really produce any surefire Academy Award players, but that doesn’t mean nothing will make it to the end. As we always do around this time, it’s a good moment to consider what Oscar contenders the[...]

“Sorry to Bother You” is a masterwork of originality

There’s a sea change of originality to be found within Sorry to Bother You, the best film of the year so far. Not only is it the class of 2018 so far, it’s arguably one of the very best movies of the last five years. The past half decade has[...]

“Ant-Man and the Wasp” is another fun sized installment for the Marvel Cinematic Universe

HOLLYWOOD HEROES™: The Marvel Cinematic Universe comes in all shapes and sizes…literally. In this particular case, the hero in question has the ability to change shapes and sizes.

Spotlight on the Stars: Jessica Chastain

The way Jessica Chastain burst on to the scene, it’s hard now to envision a cinematic landscape that doesn’t involve her. One of Hollywood’s biggest stars, she mixes charisma, activism, and sheer talent to be one of the most high profile A-listers in the business. Already a favorite for the[...]

“Leave No Trace” is another compelling showcase for Ben Foster

There’s no shortage of underrated actors in the movie industry. Frankly, Hollywood is lousy with them. Few are as underrated as Ben Foster, however. Immensely talented and shockingly dedicated to not taking mere paycheck jobs, Foster offers up something special. This week, he again puts forward his huge talents in[...]

“Sicario: Day of the Soldado” is an unlikely yet winning sequel

We certainly didn’t need a sequel to Sicario. That top notch procedural worked quite well as a stand alone movie. Luckily, despite Sicario: Day of the Soldado being unnecessary, it’s also way better than it has any right to be. Opening this week, the film isn’t the shot of near[...]
