R.I.P. Carrie Fisher

Some very upsetting news to report today to you all. Carrie Fisher, the actress and writer who first captured a galaxy of hearts with her turn as Princess Lea in the Star Wars franchise, has passed away. She was 60 years old. Fisher had been fighting for her life ever[...]

Ben Affleck’s “Live by Night” seeks to further cement his A-list director status

Oscar qualifying runs are a funny thing. Sometimes, they enhance a film’s stature and chance at awards love. Other times, they wind up creating unrealistic expectations and hurting more than they help. That seems to be the case with Ben Affleck’s fourth film behind the camera, the period gangster tale[...]

A new set of Golden Globe predictions

The time for constantly updating predictions is upon us! (Also, Happy Holidays to you and yours) Today, taking a quick break from Academy Award predictions, I’m turning my attention to the Golden Globes. A notable precursor, Globe picks can sometimes mean a lot or a little, depending on the year.[...]

Martin Scorsese’s “Silence” is the very definition of a passion project

For a great many years, filmmaker Martin Scorsese has been trying to get one specific project off the ground. Through all the gangster tales and big successes, something has eluded him, namely a remake of the Japanese film Silence. This week, Scorsese sees his movie finally released. It’s a film[...]

“Patriots Day” is a touching tribute to real heroism

Go figure. Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg seem to bring out the very best in each other. Between Lone Survivor and now Patriots Day (Deepwater Horizon as well, to a lesser extent), the pair have found a niche in true life drama and heroism. This new film is their best[...]

Catching up with the Best Original Score/Original Song long lists and the Foreign Language short list

In case you didn’t notice last week, a number of categories had their ranks thinned out by the Academy. Well, in that regard, I’m here to help. Yes, AMPAS thinned the herd in Best Original Score, Best Original Song, and Best Foreign Language Feature. They also managed to include a[...]

Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk” drops an epic Trailer

Last week, perhaps lost a bit in the precursor season shuffle, was the First Trailer for Christopher Nolan’s next film. This is his shot at a war movie, specifically a World War II outing. It’s called Dunkirk and is beginning to roll out promotional material and publicity. Scheduled for release[...]

Oscar predictions for the first half of December

All of a sudden, a matter of days can make someone’s predictions feel really out of date, can’t it? My Academy Awards predictions are overdue, no doubt about that, so that’s what is going down today. With the beginning of guild nominations and the influx of other precursors, the race[...]

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is a welcome addition to the franchise

Over the weekend, a huge premiere in Los Angeles was held for the blockbuster Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. That’s not the notable part though. What’s notable is that the initial buzz out of it was extraordinarily positive. This week, audiences get to see what critics have seen already,[...]

“Manchester by the Sea” leads a shocking Screen Actors Guild nomination list

Just a few short moments ago, the nominations for the Screen Actors Guild (or SAG) awards were announced. They mark the first of the guilds, which actually are solid barometers for Oscar. More so than a critics group or random awards body, this guild, along with the others, includes actual[...]
