“Alita: Battle Angel” Is Visually Splendid But Narratively Inert

Visual spectacle is a wonderful thing. Creating a new world right before our very eyes? At its best, it can literally take you away. When that happens, it’s a transformative cinematic experience. When that doesn’t happen, however, it’s a completely hollow one. Such is the case with Alita: Battle Angel,[...]

“Annihilation” – Alex Garland and Natalie Portman: Hollywood Film Tribute

Today we are recognizing Annihilation, as well as writer/director Alex Garland, plus star Natalie Portman. Our Hollywood Film Tributes recognize films and talent for their excellence in the art of filmmaking. It’s been almost 12 months since Annihilation blew audiences away, or at least those who actually saw it. Not catching[...]

BAFTA Rewards “The Favourite” And “Roma”

Moments ago, we saw one of the final dominos in the precursor season tumble. Yes, the 72nd British Academy Film Awards were held, with the winners staking their claim to potential Oscar glory. BAFTA has long held major sway with the Academy Awards, so what voters in the former do,[...]

Box Office Report for February 8-10

Welcome back to the weekly box office report! Each Sunday, expect a look at what made the most money in theaters, as well as just how all of the new releases fared. This week, a big time sequel in The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part entered the marketplace, hoping[...]

Steven Soderbergh Makes “High Flying Bird” Soar

Here’s something rather interesting. It’s stunning that the release of this film isn’t a bigger deal. Steven Soderbergh has made a new movie, written by the co-writer of Moonlight. If that wasn’t enough, throw in that he’s tackling the sports genre, while also beginning a partnership with Netflix. Essentially, there’s[...]

“Berlin, I Love You” Lacks A Sense Of Place

Perhaps the smallest scale franchise in the business is the “I Love You” anthology of films. Each installment in what’s called the “Cities of Love” franchise looks at romantic stories centered in one town. Paris, je t’aime started it off, with New York, I Love You and Rio, I Love[...]

Updated Academy Award Predictions After ACE Eddie, ADG, Annie, and DGA Results

We’re careening towards the Oscars, ladies and gentlemen. A little over two weeks from now, Academy Award winners will be crowned and we’ll be on to next season. Seems crazy, doesn’t it? Well, with almost every precursor having chimed in by now, that’s where we stand. As such, it’s time[...]

“Anywhere With You” Presents An Intimate Slice Of Life

Being young and just starting out can be a rough time. It’s also prime source material for young filmmakers to tell their stories. One film in particular, the just getting released Anywhere With You, is mining just that territory. Is it old hat, especially in independent cinema? Of course it[...]

Sam Elliott Lives Up To His Name In “The Man Who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot”

It has never been better to be Sam Elliott than it is now. 2017 brought a wonderful vehicle for the man in The Hero, giving him a lovely showcase. Kudos to filmmaker Brett Haley for doing that, after giving him a plum supporting role in I’ll See You In My[...]

“St. Agatha” Is A Chilling Experience

When a horror film subverts your expectations, that’s almost always a recipe for success. One would be easily forgiven for assuming that St. Agatha would traffic in the same sort of territory as last year’s awful The Nun. Instead, while still thoroughly being a fright flick, this effort goes in[...]
