LOVE THE COOPERS: A way too soon, holiday-centered comedy-drama with nothing that the talismanic invocation of the word “family” can’t fix.
Stand Up Guys is an entertaining ride, but by no means perfect. The script is a bit wobbly, with several wonderful stretches of dialogue counteracted by several leaden lines that awkwardly trip up the flow of a few scenes. Keep reading to check out our review.
Every day of this Oscar season has been, as Sheryl Crow would say, a winding road – more than any other awards season I can recall. At last, we’ve almost reached the end: Oscar Sunday is just two days away. All the red carpets, all the acceptance speeches, all the
This week we have some Oscar nominated releases with Argo and Anna Karenina plus some other awesome releases: Game of Thrones: The Complete Second Season and Sinister. The Oscars are coming up in a few days and Argo is pretty much the front runner for Best Picture, thanks to a
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) unsurprisingly handed its best film and best director prizes to Ben Affleck’s Argo this past Sunday. The only major precursor left comes as the Writers Guild of America (WGA) reveals its picks for the best original and adapted screenplays of 2012
Surprise, surprise. Ben Affleck’s Argo won the Directors Guild of America’s (DGA) top prize on Saturday. With the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) doling out its prizes on Sunday, we should again anticipate a win for the thriller, though Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln might instead prevail. The Writers
Two new posters for the upcoming Oscar ceremony came our way earlier today. The Oscar race lacks a true front-runner even though it is that time of the awards season, but that might change as the Producers Guild of America (PGA) reveals its winners – including its best picture equivalent,
Here’s hoping everyone’s had a great holiday season! But for avid Oscar watchers, this time of the year brings more than gay happy meetings and silent nights; it also gives us one of our favorite things: the heart of the Oscar season.
Check out the new trailer for the film The Incredible Burt Wonderstone which stars: Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi, Olivia Wilde, Alan Arkin, James Gandolfini, Jim Carrey, Jay Mohr, Michael Bully Herbig and is directed by Don Scardino. It looks surprisingly really good and has a pretty great cast! Here’s the synopsis:
Each of the top eight races boasts a front-runner or two, but what about the other three or four nominees in each race? It’s both a frustrating change of pace and a welcome one. It makes predicting the Oscars more difficult, but it also makes pinpointing the season a bit more exciting, doesn’t it?
Based on a real event in the Iranian hostage crisis that began in 1979, Argo tells the story of a CIA specialist (played by Affleck sporting an awesome beard) who helps six Americans escape Iran under the pretense of being a Canadian film crew scouting the country for a fake Hollywood movie.
Each month I pick movies that are the must-see, cream of the crop. They’ll either be films coming out in theaters that week or something on Netflix I think that’s worth the watch. The top four films for the month will be ones that have the a lot of buzz,
The Venice Film Festival is currently underway, but most of the Oscar news this week comes from the Telluride Film Festival, which wrapped just a few days ago. With that in mind, we’re skipping the Oscar prospects of this weekend’s new releases because the film festival news is far more
This film is a fine example of what can happen when the right team comes together and actors really invest themselves in their characters. The chemistry between Kinnear and Crudup, as well as that shared by Kinnear and Arkin is just wonderful and gives the film it’s heart.
The Venice Film Festival, which we discussed last week, might give way to some Oscar contenders, but the Toronto International Film Festival is where the awards season really begins. After all, the last five Picture winners played at the fest. If that trend continues, one hoping to find this year’s eventual
