The Best of the First Half of 2016

Time just freaking flies, doesn’t it? We’re now in July and officially in the second half of the year, which means one thing…it’s time for my mid year look at the best of the first half! As of today, July 1st, I’ve seen only a movie or two below the[...]

The Academy has invited 683 new members to join their ranks

Yesterday afternoon, the ranks of Oscar voters grew substantially, with some welcome diversity added in for good measure. Yes, the Academy sent out invitations for new membership about 24 hours ago, with 683 names getting the coveted tap on the proverbial shoulder. Again, what made it so interesting to note[...]

Looking at potential Best Picture contenders

We’re coming to the very end of June folks. Much like I said last year at the start of July, 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[...]

“The BFG” marks Steven Spielberg’s first collaboration with Disney

Believe it or not, legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg has yet to make a movie over at Disney. He finally has though, with the release this week of The BFG, based on the classic book of the same name by Roald Dahl. As I’ll get into below, Spielberg and Disney have[...]

2016 gets a dose of weirdness with “Swiss Army Man”

Last week, audiences got one of the oddest movies in some time with Swiss Army Man, an independent film unlike any other. Not only is this a singular cinematic experience, but over the weekend distributor A24 managed to have it open to solid limited theatrical box office. That unexpected success[...]

“Independence Day: Resurgence” hopes to capture nostalgia 20 years later

You could generously call the decision to hide Independence Day: Resurgence from critics an “unconventional” choice. 20th Century Fox initially wasn’t screening the movie at all before it opened, then opted to only show it earlier today at a press screening hours after it hit screens, that’s not much of[...]

Matthew McConaughey goes the period piece route in “Free State of Jones”

It’s been interesting watching Matthew McConaughey make project decisions after winning his Academy Award. He has gone big with epics like Interstellar and gone small with the still unreleased Sea of Trees, but this week he’s trying something new. Basically, he’s attempting to bring back the Civil War film with[...]

“The Neon Demon” is the next stylish effort from Nicolas Winding Refn

I still remember when I first saw Drive, Nicolas Winding Refn’s masterpiece of an action drama. It was such a wonderfully stylized and confident film, it just blew me away. Refn had never done that before, so he was officially a filmmaker I needed to see keep up this new[...]

Ben Affleck’s new directorial project “Live by Night” might be jumping into 2016

Well, it’s just speculation right now, but this is potentially some very exciting news. Word trickled down over the weekend that Warner Brothers has moved the release date of Ben Affleck’s next project behind the camera, the crime epic Live by Night. Originally, we were scheduled to get it in[...]

RIP Anton Yelchin (1989-2016)

Tragic. Just tragic. That’s the one word going through my mind again and again since word came out yesterday afternoon that actor Anton Yelchin had died in a car accident. He was only 27, taken from us far too soon, and it’s one of those untimely deaths that I’m just[...]
