“Hostiles” is a bleak yet compelling western

So far, filmmaker Scott Cooper has yet to really crack through with a true vision. He’s directed Jeff Bridges to an Oscar with Crazy Heart, as well as had would be awards players in Black Mass and Out of the Furnace. Still, his work felt very anonymous, like for hire[...]

Hugh Jackman sings his way through “The Greatest Showman”

Embargoing a film up until the day of release is never a sign of confidence on the part of a studio. Usually, this sort of treatment is reserved for low class genre fare, not would be Oscar contenders. Yet, here we are in the case of The Greatest Showman. It[...]

Ridley Scott defied the odds with “All the Money in the World”

With an embargo now lifted, let me express some real deference towards what Sir Ridley Scott was able to do with All the Money in the World at the 11th hour. His decision to recast a crucial role, essentially firing Kevin Spacey months after production had ended and replacing him[...]

“Downsizing” is a very different sort of outing for Alexander Payne

Watching the changing winds in terms of Downsizing has been fascinating this awards season. Initially, out of the Venice Film Festival, it was looked at as a big time Oscar player. Then, moving on to the Telluride Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival, its star faded. This week,[...]

Surprises highlight the Screen Actors Guild nominations

Moments ago, the Screen Actors Guild nominations for 2017 were announced, and boy did they contain some surprises. SAG hit on a fair number of the expected contenders, but they went in notably different directions as well, including a few huge snubs. Being the first of the Guilds to announce,[...]

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is the saga’s most unique entry yet

The force is strong with this one. Very strong, in fact. Rian Johnson has managed a delicate balance with Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Not only has he crafted a more than worthy sequel, he’s also differentiated himself with the most distinctive outing yet. This bodes very well for the[...]

2017 Golden Globe nominations announced!

This morning, the nominations were announced for the 2017 Golden Globe awards. As always, it was a mix of Academy Award frontrunners and one offs that will see their only moment in the sun courtesy of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The Globes are as much about perception as anything[...]

A third and final crack at 2017 Golden Globe predictions

Folks, here is a sense of just how deep into the end of the year we’ve gotten. The Golden Globe Awards will announce their nominations early on next week. Monday morning, to be specific. One of the highest profile nominating bodies out there, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (or HFPA,[...]
