Jon Favreau is going to have a huge hit on his hands with “The Jungle Book”

There’s no question that the animated feature The Jungle Book is an all time classic from Disney. It’s also one of many that the studio has now adapted into live action films. There was obviously some apprehension going in, but it appears to be one of the most well regarded[...]

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” drops one final Trailer

After much hype, yesterday during Monday Night Football the last Trailer for Episode VII of the Star Wars saga was dropped on the masses. I’ll have it for you below, of course, but I’m going to use this occasion to talk a bit more and perhaps even repeat myself about[...]

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” gets a New Trailer that will give you chills

A few minutes ago, Disney dropped a cinematic bomb on us by releasing the newest Trailer for the upcoming Episode VII of the Star Wars saga. This one, called Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is the start of a new trilogy and a direct sequel to the main trilogy that[...]

The 86th Academy Awards: If I had been a voter

I’m possibly going to be trying out a new series here. Essentially, today I’ll be going back and looking at the most recent Oscars and explaining what my vote would have been in each of the big eight categories. Potentially, I could do this once a week with previous Academy[...]

Thinking Out Loud: Oscar® nominees/winners and the ‘Star Wars’ casting rumors

For this week’s random assortment of Thinking Out Loud ideas, I wanted to start by focusing in on the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII casting rumors briefly. Specifically, how J.J. Abrams and company have recently seemed to be honing in on Oscar nominees and winners for the cast. I’ll have[...]

Oscars®: Which acting winner is most likely to win again, Cate Blanchett, Matthew McConaughey?

When the most recent Academy Awards were given out a few weeks ago (it both feels like yesterday and a lifetime ago already), we crowned first time winners in first time nominees Matthew McConaughey (Best Actor for Dallas Buyers Club), Jared Leto (Best Supporting Actor for Dallas Buyers Club), and[...]

Oscars: Why ‘American Hustle’ went home empty handed

One of the more interesting and unlikely developments from this past weekend’s Academy Awards telecast was David O. Russell’s film American Hustle managing to lose in each of the ten categories it was nominated in. Historically, 0-fors almost never happen. Recent examples include Gangs of New York and True Grit,[...]

The Oscars® were no enormous shame, a few good jokes, no great shocks

I’m a big fan of Ellen DeGeneres and her understated, often brilliant humor. This was most evident when she hosted the 2001 Emmy Awards after the horrific events in New York and Washington that year. The show was postponed twice, and when it finally aired a couple of months later[...]

Oscars: 12 Years a Slave wins Best Picture at the 86th Academy Awards

After months and months of lead up and speculation (not to mention an endless string of precursor awards), the Academy Awards were finally given out, and the results were almost as unpredictable as we’d all been saying. 12 Years a Slave took home Best Picture despite only winning two other[...]

12 Years a Slave wins five Independent Spirit Awards

Could the Independent Spirit Awards results from earlier today be foreshadowing what happens with the Academy Awards tomorrow night? Personally, I don’t think so, but the potential is there at least, especially after 12 Years a Slave pretty much dominated the show, taking five awards, including Best Feature, Best Director[...]
