One more win for “Boyhood” tells us what we already know, that Linklater’s 12 year darling will be the belle of the ball at the Oscars this year, with “Birdman” coming from behind with some likely technical wins.

Oscars Watch: The Best Actor In A Leading Role Race

POTENTIAL LOCKS // These four men have the most momentum going into next week. Not to say these will be my final picks but all four of them garner Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe nominations and have been talked about by experts since the start of the season, so on paper, they’re the best bets.

Oscars Watch: 2014 Nevada Film Critics Society Awards

Nevada strays completely from the pack and gives “Gone Girl” its first Best Film of the Year win. It really is a great film and should get some recognition come Academy Award time but one vote isn’t going to do it much. “Nightcrawler” also gets some love, both for Dan Gilroy (Director and Screenplay) and Jake Gyllenhaal. “Big Hero 6” also gets one of … Read More Oscars Watch: 2014 Nevada Film Critics Society Awards

Oscars Watch: 2014 St. Louis Film Critics Association Awards

No surprises here. “Boyhood” and “Birdman” split most of the major awards while Jake Gyllenhaal grabs another Best Actor win. Let is be stated that J.K. Simmons is likely going to win Best Supporting Actor at the Oscars and I cannot wait for that. Also expecting Emmanuel Lubezki to win his second consecutive Oscar this year (last year for “Gravity”). Here is the official … Read More Oscars Watch: 2014 St. Louis Film Critics Association Awards

Oscars Watch: 2014 San Diego Film Critics Society Awards

San Diego steps outside the box, giving most of their wins to “Nightcrawler” and those involved with it, including director and writer Dan Gilroy, lead actor Jake Gyllenhaal, supporting actress Rene Russo, and cinematography Rovert Elswit. Although most of these will not carry over to the Oscars, Jake Gyllenhaal may be edging his way more and more to a nomination.

Oscars Watch: 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards Nominees

Oscar frontrunners “Birdman” and “Boyhood” actually face off at the Golden Globes this year, being placed in separate categories which allows them both to win and thus gives no one an inclination as to what will play out at the Oscars. However, be sure if one of them does not win its category, it will leave the other one wide open to take Best … Read More Oscars Watch: 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards Nominees

Oscars Watch: 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Nominees

No real surprises anywhere here. Could be pretty close to what we see come Oscar nominations. Expect Jake Gyllenhaal (“Nightcrawler”) to be the top of the dark horses in the Best Actor category however, possibly pushing out David Oyelowo (“Selma”) or Timothy Spall (“Mr. Turner”). Also, with enough attention on Jennifer Aniston and her performance in “Cake,” that could also nudge her into the … Read More Oscars Watch: 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Nominees

Quick Review: Enemy (2014)

ENEMY BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLJUNE 27, 2014 The doppelganger storyline has never been more intense or more confusing than in director Denis Villeneuve’s latest film, “Enemy”. In “Prisoners”, Villeneuve directed Jake Gyllenhaal to one of the best performances of his career, so it was only natural for these two to pair up again. This time around Gyllenhaal plays a lowly history teacher named Adam who … Read More Quick Review: Enemy (2014)

Movie Review: Rendition (2007)

RENDITION BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLMARCH 4, 2014 Before “Zero Dark Thirty” caught everyone’s attention about the treatment of terrorist suspects in other countries, “Rendition” explored the same basic idea six years before a much lesser audience. But what’s the difference? Were people not ready to hear about the idea of “extraordinary rendition” back then, which was a very real thing that occurred under the go-ahead … Read More Movie Review: Rendition (2007)

Quick Review: Zodiac (2007)

ZODIAC BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLDECEMBER 26, 2013 As dark and dreary as a David Fincher film can get, “Zodiac” delves into the true to life unsolved crimes of a serial killer known as the Zodiac Killer. Unfolding like an actual mystery, Fincher lays out the entire groundwork of this real-life story and involves the audience in a manhunt that took place from the late ‘60s … Read More Quick Review: Zodiac (2007)

Quick Review: Brokeback Mountain (2005)

BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLDECEMBER 23, 2013 “Brokeback Mountain” lives up to its expectations by being a highly homoerotic love story between two cowboys working as ranch hands for winter and the spiral that follows. Lead tremendously by Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal, the film is unforgettable because of the performances turned in between the two. Ledger plays the grisly Ennis Del Mar who … Read More Quick Review: Brokeback Mountain (2005)

For Your Consideration 2013: Prisoners

Never say never. The Academy loves to nominate Roger Deakins without awarding him and this year could be no different and “Prisoners” is the Oscar caliber film that could go either way, meaning it could either grab a few nominations and no one would be surprised, or it could totally be forgotten and that wouldn’t effect many people either. With multiple Academy Award nominees … Read More For Your Consideration 2013: Prisoners

Movie Review: Prisoners (2013)

PRISONERS BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLSEPTEMBER 22, 2013 What can only be described as an epic, slow-burn thriller, “Prisoners,” is a direct descendant of the dark worlds shaped by director David Fincher? With drained color and constant dreariness in every scene, the tone of the film is off the charts. The drizzling rain and stormy days may seem somewhat heavy-handed, but these choices suck you into … Read More Movie Review: Prisoners (2013)

Proof Review: Love & Other Drugs (2010)

Love & Other Drugs>>>>4 Stars<<<<Romantic comedies have been running rampant recently and the one thing setting “Love & Other Drugs” apart from any other lovie-dovie romantic film released lately was its 'R' rating. That may make me sound like a pervert, but some romantic comedies just do not work with out a certain element. This is where a lot of romantic comedies lose steam, getting a 'PG' or 'PG-13' rating and then coming off like a children's romantic comedy. Take “When in Rome” or “The Bounty Hunter” for example. Had these films delved into the riskier ratings, the films would not feel like bonafide Disney comedies.

Proof Review: Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time (2010)

Prince Of Persia takes all the major plot points from several of its Disney predecessors and combines them into a live action Arabian family feud film, with a hint of the metaphysical and mythological. Though well cast, the film falls short of a film such as 300 and rides the fine line between child’s film and adult action adventure.
