“The Magnificent Seven” remake looks to bring back the Western

Outside of Quentin Tarantino, it seems like no one is really attempting to do Westerns anymore. This week, one does hit in the remake of The Magnificent Seven. This film, the latest take on the material, seeks to not just follow in those footsteps, but in Tarantino’s as well, echoing[...]

Ethan Hawke hits all the right notes in “Born to Be Blue”

If you’re anything like me, you’re a pretty big fan of Ethan Hawke. Over the years, Hawke has been among the most consistent and interesting actors in Hollywood. He floats in and out of the studio system at ease, keeping a presence both in blockbusters occasionally as well as often[...]

Leonardo DiCaprio: Looking at potential Best Actor contenders

Ethan Hawke might be the most underrated actor in Hollywood

I don’t know if many people notice, but there’s almost nothing in the film industry that Ethan Hawke can’t do…and do well. He’s been an awards mainstay of late, as well as being someone who Oscar has nominated far more often than you probably realize. This week, he makes another[...]

Ethan Hawke flexes a new muscle with the documentary “Seymour: An Introduction”

I’m not sure Ethan Hawke gets the credit that he deserves. Not only is he a well respected actor, but he’s a novelist and a filmmaker as well, having put out narrative features previously, and now a documentary. Yes, this Friday, his doc Seymour: An Introduction hits theaters, and it’s[...]

The Oscar Case For and Against Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood”

Believe it or not, we’re only about 72 hours away now away from the Academy Award ceremony folks. Like I said earlier this week, by now we all know that it’s basically a final sprint to the finish between Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman and Richard Linklater’s Boyhood. As such, this[...]

Predictions for the Independent Spirit Awards

Yes, the Academy Awards are on Sunday, but they aren’t the only big award show this weekend. The Independent Spirit Awards are on Saturday, making for a great one-two punch. I’ve always enjoyed the Spirit Awards as much as any precursor, even if their Oscar impact is basically nil. They[...]

A Mid February Oscar predictions update

We’ve come to the penultimate update to my predictions folks. With Academy Award voting going on hot and heavy, it’s really time to buckle down and try to work out some last minute Oscar hunches before final predictions next week, right? Much like I said last week, it’s pretty serious[...]
