Hollywood Contenders – Looking at the Short Film categories

If there’s a trio of categories that aren’t given the respect that they deserve (or frankly, any respect at all), it’s the short film categories. Be it Best Animated Short, Best Documentary Short, or Best Live Action Short, they all are mostly ignored by the masses, especially when the first[...]

Sylvester Stallone in “Creed”: Ranking the films in the “Rocky” franchise

On Friday, one of the most shockingly great movies of the year opens in Creed, the sequel/spinoff to Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky series. I’ll have a full on article about that one in a few days, but today I wanted to pay tribute to the franchise in a way by actually[...]

The Sundance Film Festival announces their first 2016 titles, including Kevin Smith’s “Yoga Hosers”

There’s no place quite like Park City, Utah during the Sundance Film Festival. I’ve been lucky enough to attend and it’s really something to behold. The fest is this bustling adventure in a small mountain town, filled to the brim with independent films of all types. It also takes place[...]

A Second November Oscar Predictions Update – 1. Leonardo DiCaprio – The Revenant, 2. Matt Damon – The Martian, 3. Michael Fassbender – Steve Jobs, 4. Eddie Redmayne – The Danish Girl, 5. Michael Caine – Youth

Somehow, we’re almost done with the month of November. There’s only about six weeks or so left in 2015, which means the awards season is in full swing. As you all know, we’re awaiting the final big three releases of the year in The Hateful Eight, Joy, and The Revenant[...]

Hollywood Contenders – Is “Spotlight” really the one to beat in Best Picture?

There isn’t a whole lot that pundits can agree up on in regards to the Oscar race right now, but one thing seems to be that Spotlight is the one to beat currently in Best Picture. Tom McCarthy’s film is in a great position right now, as you’ll see in[...]

Hollywood Contenders – Can “Secret in their Eyes” be an awards friendly remake?

The word “remake” is a dirty word to critics, but it doesn’t always have to be the case. Once in a while, something even becomes an awards player, like when Martin Scorsese took Infernal Affairs, remade it as The Departed, and won the Oscar for Best Picture, along with his[...]

Joseph Gordon-Levitt: His best performances to date

Simply put, it’s hard to find a more charming up and coming A-lister in Hollywood right now than Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He is one of the industries most uniquely talented actors, with an eye towards filmmaking as well. This week, he goes the raunchy buddy comedy route while mixing in the[...]

Hollywood Contenders – Where does “Carol” fit into the awards season now?

It’s been a very interesting year so far for Todd Haynes’ film Carol. Beginning at the Cannes Film Festival, it was feted as one of 2015’s biggest Oscar contenders, and throughout the festival season (including the New York Film Festival), that has more or less continued. The thing is, slowly[...]

Hollywood Contenders – Which films could have multiple nominees in the same category?

It doesn’t often happen, but every so often a category in the Oscar race will have multiple contenders from the same feel competing for nominations. Ironically, this year seems to have an abundance of them, making for a potentially interesting Academy Awards race when all is said and done. In[...]

Summer Blockbusters Take On Late Year Prestige in the Race for Best Visual Effects

Who doesn’t go to the movies to escape? That escape is frequently provided merely through amazing comedy and/or drama. But a certain spectacle never hurts. Amazing visual effects not only help in this regard, but studios frequently find themselves selling a movie’s effects before its stars or its story. No[...]
