Ladies and gentlemen, as you all know from years past, as well as my return article last week, it’s one thing to read early Academy Award predictions at this point in the year in order to see what folks like myself think will happen six or so months from now,[...]

Who could replace Colin Trevorrow and direct “Star Wars: Episode IX”?

Some rather huge news broke two days ago when Lucasfilm announced that they’d parted ways with filmmaker Colin Trevorrow, who was scheduled to direct Episode IX of the Star Wars saga. It’s supposedly a mutual parting, but the poor reception to Trevorrow’s recently released The Book of Henry definitely didn’t[...]

“It” looks to become the rare blockbuster horror outing

Horror films often are treated as the red headed stepchild of the cinematic world. Whether it’s a lack of awards viability or just an absence of respect, it’s the genre treated the worst by Hollywood. This week, however, we have a major attempt at changing that with the release of[...]

Telluride and Venice launch a new set of Oscar contenders

Hollywood Contenders – Looking at potential Best Picture contenders: SEPT 2017

As I’ve always said, it’s one thing to read early Academy Award predictions to see what folks like myself think will happen at the end of the year, but it’s another thing entirely to actually know which films will be in contention. To that end, once a week (or maybe[...]

Teaser Trailer drops for Alexander Payne’s passion project “Downsizing”

Just a few hours ago, not only did the first (rave) reviews out of the Venice Film Festival hit for Downsizing, a Teaser Trailer has popped up on the web for Alexander Payne’s latest movie as well. Not only has Payne put out something timely and supposedly top notch, it[...]

“Battle of the Sexes” and “mother!”: Films to look forward to in September

It’s almost September folks! The air is filled with buzz about potential Academy Award contenders, what’s hitting and missing (or going to hit/miss) at the various fall film festivals, and other such signs of the end of the summer. I’m getting a slight jump on this monthly post and putting[...]

Will anyone take Best Director from Christopher Nolan?

Here’s an interesting turn in the Oscar race. After years of being ignored and snubbed in the Best Director field, there’s a strong chance that Christopher Nolan will be finally cited in the category for his work making Dunkirk. In fact, it’s hard to argue that at the moment, he’s[...]
