Barry Jenkins Is Making A Prequel To “The Lion King”

“Sno Babies” Announces Katie Kelly As Someone To Watch

Keep an eye on Katie Kelly. The young actress has an X factor that suggests an ability to shoot to the top of the A-list in no time. You can just tell, sometimes. Kelly showcases that star quality, as well as some serious acting chops, in the new drama Sno[...]

The Top 25: Best Picture Winners

Well, all good things must come to an end at some point. Yes folks, this is the final installment of the second go-around of this series of mine, and as such, it’s (hopefully) a bit of a doozy…the Best Picture field. Without a doubt, this is the big one, so[...]

A Full Trailer Showcases The Captivating Nature Of “The Trial Of The Chicago 7”

Disney Pushes Nearly All Of Their Remaining Slate To 2021!

A New Franchise Is Likely Birthed With “Enola Holmes”

Sometimes, you can just sense a franchise being born. Often, that feeling is one of indifference or resignation, since it’s among the least creative things that Hollywood can do. On occasion, however, the spark of a fun new character is enough to pique your interest and make subsequent adventures something[...]

“The Nest” Is An Engrossing Slow Burn

Somehow, Sean Durkin made his breakthrough movie Martha Marcy May Marlene nearly a decade ago. Even harder to believe, sadly, is that it has taken him nine years to get a follow-up feature made. Well, at the very least, that wait is now over, as The Nest is out in[...]

Emmy Winners Include ‘Watchmen,’ Zendaya, And A ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Sweep

Last night, the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards were held, obviously under much different circumstances than normal. Conducted virtually, it was a sign of the COVID-19 times, but more or less went off without a hitch. Plus, as a general rule, people seem rather pleased with the winners. There was Schitt’s[...]

“Nomadland” Wins The Audience Award At The Toronto International Film Festival!

It’s still very early, but it’s impossible not to take notice of what Chloe Zhao’s film Nomadland is doing right now. The fall film festival season has launched other movies, like Regina King’s One Night in Miami…, but none like Nomadland. Today, the flick added a pretty big feather in[...]
