Oscar predictions: A bonus June update

Yes folks, I’m diving back into bi-monthly Oscar predictions! At the very least, I wanted to sort of wrap up the first half of the year with a slightly different set of predictions. The Academy Awards are still a ways off in the distance, but without question we have things[...]

“Ted 2”: Ranking the top comedy sequels of all time

One of the hardest things to get right in Hollywood seems to be a sequel to a hit comedy. For one reason or another, most comedy sequels tend to fall flat. As such, it’s all the more notable when one succeeds, as it’s rather rare. This week though, we have[...]

Marvel/Sony picks a Spider-Man actor in Tom Holland and a director in Jon Watts

After what seems like one of the longest casting processes in a while, Marvel and Sony have settled on the next actor to play Peter Parker and his superhero alter ego Spider-Man. The search literally took months, involved names both expected and unexpected, but finally concluded yesterday. Putting on the[...]

R.I.P. James Horner: A top tier contributor to cinematic music

It was with great sadness that we learned yesterday of the death of composer James Horner at just 61 years old. Horner died in a plane crash, piloting a small aircraft that went down a day ago in California. The composer is a multiple Oscar winner, taking home Academy Awards[...]

Seth MacFarlane looks to establish comedy dominance with “Ted 2”

For today’s piece, I want to try something a little bit different, especially because this isn’t the first time I’ve spoken of Seth MacFarlane here. Last year, I wrote about MacFarlane as a future A-list comedy filmmaker on the eve of his sophomore feature A Million Ways to Die in[...]

Ranking every Pixar film so far

I’m hardly the only one to think of this, but with Pixar putting their new film Inside Out into theatrical release today, what better time is there to rank all of their works to date? I’ve obviously seen all 15 films, from Toy Story and A Bug’s Life all the[...]

“SICARIO” starring Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro

In Mexico, SICARIO means hitman. In the lawless border area stretching between the U.S. and Mexico, an idealistic FBI agent [Emily Blunt] is enlisted by an elite government task force official [Josh Brolin] to aid in the escalating war against drugs. Led by an enigmatic consultant with a questionable past [Benicio Del[...]

Matt Damon and Ridley Scott appear at the top of their game in early looks at “The Martian”

By now, I hope all of you have seen the downright amazing First Trailer for Ridley Scott’s The Martian. Starring Matt Damon, this potentially epic science fiction adventure has been my most anticipated film of the year ever since I learned that it had a 2015 release date. I really[...]

Al Pacino’s Top Ten performances to date

More or less ever since winning an Oscar for Best Actor in Scent of a Woman, Al Pacino has seen less than his fair share of top notch roles. Luckily though, that drought ends this week with David Gordon Green’s Manglehorn, which features Pacino doing easily his best work in[...]

“Inside Out” is a moving and Oscar worthy return to form for Pixar

Up until a few years ago, the annual release of an animated feature from Pixar was greeted with much hype and a sense that the company could do no wrong. Then, a couple of less than universally beloved flicks came out and the brand was running the risk of no[...]
