Scarlett Johansson continues to prove her action hero chops with “Ghost in the Shell”

Mon, Mar 27 2017


There are two types of Scarlett Johansson roles that we’ve been getting over the past few years. One is affecting work in things like Her or Under the Skin, while the other is in action films, both of the Marvel ilk, as well as things like this week’s release Ghost in the Shell. I don’t mean this as an insult though. Joh ... READ MORE

Oscar Isaac and Kristen Stewart: Who’s due for their first Oscar nomination?

Fri, Mar 24 2017

Woody Harrelson’s potentially big 2017 begins with “Wilson”

Tue, Mar 21 2017


The first part of any given year is usually pretty dry when it comes to awards contenders. As such, a lot of the time speculation surrounds who might end up in play, should their upcoming films be worthy of contention. Once such actor with a decent sized slate in 2017 is Woody Harrelson. Here is a man with Academy Award nominations to his ... READ MORE

Mon, Mar 20 2017


As the conclusion to South by Southwest (or, as we all know it, SXSW) for 2017 came last week, so too came some awards, much like at any number of film festivals.
