Earlier in the week, Netflix dropped a new Trailer for one of their biggest awards players in The Trial of the Chicago 7. This came right after the film screened for the first time, for a select group of writers, including yours truly. I’ll talk more about the quality of[...]

Disney Pushes Nearly All Of Their Remaining Slate To 2021!

In case you missed it earlier in the week, some big news dropped, with Disney basically punting on the year 2020, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Given how movie theaters are still largely closed in the major American markets like Los Angeles and New York City, this is totally[...]

“Kajillionaire” Is A Quirky New Effort From Miranda July

How much quirk is too much quirk? That question is one that everyone has to answer for themselves. That being said, there’s always a point at which things go over the top and a film stops being enjoyable. Some can stand more than others. I, for example, really have very[...]

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.

Last night, the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards were held, obviously under much different circumstances than normal.

“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[...]

The 58th New York Film Festival Officially Kicked Off With Steve McQueen’s “Lovers Rock”

Earlier in the week, the 2020 incarnation of the New York Film Festival got underway officially, with one part of Steve McQueen’s Small Axe anthology, Lovers Rock, serving as the Opening Night Selection. Having seen it, the movie serves as both a strong start for NYFF this year, as well[...]

“Blackbird” Mostly Wastes A Wonderful Cast

A great cast can paper over a lot of issues. Watching talented actors and actresses at work is part of the main charm of the gift that is cinema. However, even the best thespians can’t make up for a script that just doesn’t give them much to do. Likewise with[...]

Alexandra Daddario Gives A Brave And Stirring Performance In “Lost Girls & Love Hotels”

Watching a character make poor choices can be a trying experience, depending on the genre at hand. Seeing this in a comedy? Potentially hilarious. Observing similar acts in a drama? Quite possibly heartbreaking. The new drama Lost Girls & Love Hotels comes very close to going too far over the[...]
