Why Green Book winning best picture is a joke

Disclaimer: This is going to be a long, long rant. My soapbox has been checked for its sturdiness and I am perched upon it and ready to go.  It is an absolute joke that Green Book won Best Picture last night and the Academy should...

This year's Academy Awards will be a complete disaster

I love to hate the Oscars, but I also hate that I love them.  For the past several years I've had a tradition where I try to see as many Oscar Best Picture nominees as I can. I want to see which movies were considered the best of their...

The Oscars will not have a host this year

The show must go on, as they say. After Kevin Hart bowed out as the Academy Awards emcee, the annual Oscars awards ceremony will go on without a host. The last time a black comedian stepped down as Oscars host (Eddie Murphy in 2011) as a re...

Jordan Peele's Us trailer weirded out my mom

If you were to tell me five years ago that Jordan Peele was going to be one of the most compelling horror directors in Hollywood and win an Academy Award for his 2017 movie Get Out, I would wonder who you were and why you were asking me su...

Kevin Hart out as Oscar host over decade old tweets

I have never been a fan of Kevin Hart. It's not that I don't like the guy or think that he's annoying, but it's simply because I don't find him funny. I acknowledge that humor is subjective, so when a friend of mine tells me that he finds K...

Review: First Man

Another year, another epic sci-fi movie that rolls into theatres to rake up award nominations. Since 2013, there's been a trend to release at least one big sci-fi movie that either focuses on scientifically accurate space adventures or a hi...

The Academy nixes Best Popular Film from this year's Oscars

Earlier in the summer, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced a few changes to their Oscar broadcast. Most of the details were pretty nebulous, but the one that got most critics and fans in a tizzy was that the ...

First Trailer for Green Book is out

There have only been a handful of thoughtful dramas in 2018 so far. This genre, once home to countless Oscar-bait films, has downsized significantly in recent years as audiences change. However, Green Book's first trailer shows that, at lea...

Netflix is in the market for a gently used movie chain

Netflix is set to release 80 movies this year, and by virtue of "something has to stick," at least a few of them are bound to be noteworthy. Add their shows to that and Netflix is spending $8 billion on original content, an amount with wh...

The Oscars are over and the winners are here

Look, I know a lot of big things happened at the Oscars last night, but if you're a big film buff the biggest moment was Roger "I'm never going to win an Oscar" Deakins finally, finally, finally laying his hands on that little golden statue...

5 times the Razzies were WRONG

There was a time in my life where I swore by the Razzies and Razzie nominations. While the Oscars promote some of the best movies of the year, the Razzies are the polar opposite. They talk about the worst movies of a previous year and revel...

Here are your 2016 Razzie winners and losers

Just in case you thought cinema had a good year, the annual Razzie awards reminds you of several films you wish you'd forgotten about. Like years before the nominations and wins take pot shots at easy targets. Rather than tackle cinema's wo...

Check out this awesome Birdman toy commercial

There's not really much to say other than this is a neat little ditty promoting Birdman's victory lap through some theaters after taking home the Best Picture Oscar. But it's just really, really neat. If you haven't yet, you should watch B...

Here are your 2015 Razzie winners and losers

With the 2015 Academy Awards come and gone, it's time to focus on the negative stuff...or at least the stuff that's popular to hate rather than actual bad movies. We've got expected "winners" like Michael Bay and lots of hate for Saving Chr...

Here are your 2015 Oscar winners

Despite what some may say (and even more might want), the Academy Awards are a huge deal. It's a club for old white men, sure, but the choices they make absolutely affect what projects studios do and don't greenlight going forward. And for ...
