Natalie Portman and “Jackie” are the Oscar race’s newest contenders

Every once in a blue moon, a hunch of mine seems to pay off. A few times over the past month or so, I’ve listed Jackie as a dark horse Academy Award contender across the board, and not just for Natalie Portman’s turn as the former First Lady. It has[...]

“Snowden” is an important and entertaining biopic

About a week ago, I caught a screening of Snowden, but the embargo was still in place. Now, I can more comfortably say that it’s quite good, easily Oliver Stone’s best film in some time. Not only that, it’s a top notch role for and performance by Joseph Gordon-Levitt in[...]

Ben Affleck’s “Live by Night” gets a real stylish Trailer

Late last week, we got our first true glimpse of Ben Affleck’s latest directorial outing. As a fan of all three films Affleck has made as a director, Live by Night had already been on my radar, but this was a nice reminder that it’s not far out now. Scheduled[...]

“Sully” is Tom Hanks at his heroic best

Yesterday, I got the chance to finally take a look at Clint Eastwood and Tom Hanks’ collaboration Sully. The film is quite good, showcasing both heavyweights at peak skill. This week could have been a pretty barren one, but Sully saves it, just like he did all of the passengers[...]

“Nocturnal Animals” by Tom Ford, starring Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal

“Nocturnal Animals” from writer/director Tom Ford comes a haunting romantic thriller of shocking intimacy and gripping tension that explores the thin lines between love and cruelty, and revenge and redemption. Academy Award nominees Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal star as a divorced couple discovering dark truths about each other and[...]

The Telluride and Venice Film Festivals unleashed a ton of Oscar contenders

Deep in the mountains of Colorado, the Academy Award race began in earnest over the weekend. Coming hot off of the heels of a few debuts at the Venice Film Festival, a number of Oscar contenders hit the Telluride Film Festival in order to up their bonafides. Both Telluride and[...]

Clint Eastwood: His best films to date

Later this week, Clint Eastwood will unleash a new film into the world in Sully, which debuted a few days ago at the Telluride Film Festival. Early word is very solid, suggesting a potential awards player this year. I’ll be writing about that movie shortly, but for now, I want[...]

Hollywood Contenders – The State of The Race: Looking at potential Best Documentary Feature contenders

Ahoy there folks! For what might be my final installment of the annual category/contender rundown, I’m finishing up by again moving on from the big eight categories. Yes, I’m taking a look now at one of the in betweens, or as I call them “mini-majors”. This time out, that happens[...]
