“Ford v Ferrari” Is A High Octane Crowd Pleaser

The thrill of driving a car at high speeds is one that many share. At the same time, the sport of auto racing is hard to compelling depict on screen. Car chases are a cinematic staple, but that’s a completely different beast. More often than not, racing movies focus as[...]

Adam Driver Is On A Quest For The Truth In “The Report”

A cursory glance at the television these days, especially when the news is on, gives ample evidence of how complicated it is in the political world to try and seek out the truth. People and groups with different sorts of politics can see the same information and find different truths[...]

“Waves” Is A Stunning Work Of Emotional Brilliance

Last month, the Critics Choice Documentary Awards announced their nominations, beginning to suggest which documentaries could be the Academy Award favorites this year. Tomorrow, the awards show takes place (full disclosure: I’m a voting member of the Critics Choice Association, formerly known as the Broadcast Film Critics Association). In case[...]

Updated Oscar Predictions For Early November

In just about two months, the Academy Award nominations will be announced. Between now and then, it’s going to be a mad dash, what with the shortened Phase Two this year, to establish movies and performances as the ones to beat. This will lead to one of two things happening.[...]

“Midway” Has Action But An Incredibly Cliched Story

World War II epics used to be a dime a dozen. Reliving the United States’ finest hours on the battlefield, filmmakers flocked to the conflict in order to tell tales of heroism. More recently, movies have largely eschewed this topic, unless a director had a more daring take to contribute.[...]

The Music Of George Michael Swirls Around The Romantic Tale “Last Christmas”

Ever since the very first Trailer for Last Christmas was released, something felt…off. The story shown just seemed to be hiding a little bit of information.
