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

Much like I said last week, 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[...]

“Free Fire” is a blast with another top notch Brie Larson performance

It’s a little bit of an understatement to say that filmmaker Ben Wheatley has not made mainstream movies so far. His films are niche items, albeit sometimes incredibly compelling ones. 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[...]

“The Lost City of Z” recalls a classic form of cinema

James Gray is a filmmaker who often seems to wind up having the worst luck. Whether it’s with a distributor or with his star acting up, Gray can’t seem to catch a break once his film is in the can. This time around, Brad Pitt and Plan B funded The[...]

“Win it All” is another strong pairing of Jake Johnson and Joe Swanberg

Joe Swanberg has had one of the more interesting career upswings of any independent filmmaker out there. After being one of the essential founders of the mumblecore indie movement, he made a right turn of sorts a few years back. Opting for bigger stars and similarly simple premises, he’s found[...]

The Teaser Trailer for “Thor: Ragnarok” is an absolute hoot

Within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the two Thor films have been among the most forgettable. They’re not bad, but they lack personality and the fun of the rest of the MCU. Well, as you’ll see with this Teaser Trailer that debuted yesterday, Thor: Ragnarok certainly seeks to change all of[...]

“Dunkirk”: Oscar predictions for April

I know, it’s still early. It’s April, which is absurdly early to be thinking about the Oscars. That being said, there’s certainly fun to be had in contemplating early predictions. The Academy just announced some small rule changes last week, mainly some simple housekeeping, though they did make things a[...]
