“A Bigger Splash” showcases Ralph Fiennes and Tilda Swinton in a new light

There’s almost an embarrassment of riches on display in the new movie A Bigger Splash, at least in terms of the main cast members. Consider how excited most cinema buffs would be for anything that starred Ralph Fiennes and Tilda Swinton, but then factor in how this is a change[...]

The Coen Brothers are back with “Hail, Caesar!”

Just about every other year, more or less like clockwork, Joel Coen and Ethan Coen unleash another film on audiences across the world. Fans of their work will probably be delighted by Hail, Caesar!, which opens this weekend and really resembles some of the most overtly comedic work from the[...]

“Trainwreck” is Judd Apatow’s best to date and Amy Schumer deserves awards attention

I’ve pretty much always had a good feeling about Trainwreck, ever since it was announced that it would be Judd Apatow’s next film. I love Apatow’s writing, but if he was going to direct someone else’s script, Amy Schumer was the perfect choice. She would be making her leading lady[...]

Yesterday evening, folks at South By Southwest (or SXSW) got to see an early glimpse at Trainwreck, the new film from A-list comedy director Judd Apatow. Penned by and starring Amy Schumer, the pairing of those minds held tons of potential, so I was waiting with baited breath to hear[...]

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[...]

Judd Apatow hopes to tickle the Academy’s funny bone with “Trainwreck”

Making a comedy that gets recognized by the Oscars is an almost impossible pursuit. Best Picture nominees that are comedies are few and far between, let alone winners. Still, there are some filmmakers who traffic in laughs and you really feel can make a mark with the Academy. Judd Apatow[...]

“Birdman”, “Boyhood”, “Nightcrawler”, and “Selma” lead the 30th Spirit Awards nominations

Just a few moments ago, the 2015 Independent Spirit Awards announced their nominations for their 30th annual ceremony, once again providing a mix of future Academy Award nominees and smaller contenders getting their moment in the sun. In terms of the former, Birdman (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) lead the[...]

Re-ranking the contenders in Best Supporting Actress

Ladies and gentlemen, as I’ve been mentioning to you over the past couple of weeks, it’s getting to be go time, as it were. With the festival season well underway/now nearing completion and just about all of the major contenders for the Academy Awards having screened or about to screen,[...]
