The Toronto International Film Festival boosts “Green Book” with its Top Prize

Over the weekend, the Toronto International Film Festival announced their award winners for 2018. Notably, they gave out the Audience Award, which is the top prize you can get at TIFF. It went to Peter Farrelly’s Green Book, in a bit of an upset. The runner ups were, perhaps surprisingly,[...]

Updated Academy Award predictions for early September

Things are getting interesting. Movies are playing at prestigious film festivals, contenders are being solidified as Oscar hopefuls, and the season is in full swing now. Frankly, you can even make the claim that there’s a solid top five contenders for Best Picture right now. The smart money is on[...]

“White Boy Rick” is a compelling character study and period piece

True crime stories usually like to focus on the rise and fall of someone we know in our hearts is due justice. We may like him or her, but there’s never a doubt that prison is deserved. With the new film White Boy Rick, opening in theaters this weekend, things[...]

Taking a look at potential Best Supporting Actress contenders

As you all very fine ladies and gentlemen must all must know by now (since I’ve pretty much hammered it into your collective heads at this point), it’s one thing to read early Academy Award predictions in order to see what folks like myself think will happen this winter, but[...]

“The Favourite” releases a new Trailer to build off of its positive festival buzz

Of all the movies to play at both the Telluride and Venice Film Festivals last week, The Favourite seems like one of biggest ones to watch out for, awards wise. With a New York Film Festival bow on the horizon, the buzz for this new Yorgos Lanthimos tale should sustain[...]

“All About Nina” and “Fahrenheit 11/9”: Films to look forward to in September

With the air filled with buzz about potential Academy Award contenders out of Telluride and Venice (as opposed to the smells of Autumn), we’ve reached the month of September.
