TULIP FEVER || Puzzling is the fact that The Weinstein Company (who always seems to have a dog in the Oscars race) have a period piece directed by Justin Chadwick (The Other Boleyn Girl & Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom) and starring not one, not two, but three Academy Award winners amongst an absolutely stacked ensemble cast, and yet they are quietly releasing trailers … Read More New Trailer: Tulip Fever – Official Trailer #1

88th Academy Award Winners

Listen, I can’t be mad because the same thing happened a few years ago when “12 Years A Slave” won having only won Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress, while “Gravity” had taken home 7 Oscars including Best Directing. So “The Revenant” wins Best Directing, Best Cinematography, and Best Leading Actor, yet does not pull off Best Picture. I do know which film I’ll … Read More 88th Academy Award Winners

2016 Oscars Challenge: [18] “Ex Machina” – Best Visual Effects

EX MACHINA Andrew Whitehurst, Paul Norris, Mark Ardington and Sara Bennett The biggest visual effect that “Ex Machina” takes part in is turning actress Alicia Vikander into an Artificial Intelligence robot, with a human face, but a robotic body. As shown in the featurette, the creators stayed away from green screens as much as possible as to be able to film in a real … Read More 2016 Oscars Challenge: [18] “Ex Machina” – Best Visual Effects

Oscars Watch: 2015 Chicago Film Critics Association Awards

Chicago shifts slightly back to giving “Mad Max: Fury Road” all the love, with Best Picture and Best Director for George Miller. Leonardo DiCaprio is now becoming the front-runner for Best Actor for his role in “The Revenant,” as long as he can fend off the strange “bear rape” headline that surfaced not too long ago.

Oscars Watch: 2015 Phoenix Film Critics Circle Awards

As is the trend forming, “Spotlight” takes Best Picture, George Miller (“Mad Max: Fury Road”) takes Best Director.

Oscars Watch: 2015 Southeastern Film Critics Association Awards

Here’s what I’m hoping: that everyone’s love for the films that don’t feel like Academy films, like “Ex Machina” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” get honored at the Oscars.

Oscars Watch: 2015 Toronto Film Critics Association Awards

Toronto gives “Carol” it’s second victory. While I do not believe it will give “Spotlight” a run for its money, it will fill in the Best Picture category nicely, with Todd Haynes possibly getting a Director nomination as well. “Phoenix” will likely not be showing up anywhere at the Oscars, nor will “Legend” likely breakthrough. “The Look Of Silence,” however, I am hoping will … Read More Oscars Watch: 2015 Toronto Film Critics Association Awards
