New Trailer: Venom – Official Trailer #2

VENOM My personal biases keep me from being able to enjoy these trailers for the new Spider-Man (without actually having Spider-Man) villain stand-alone movie, “Venom.” First of all, Sony Pictures comes off to me as one of the biggest production companies to not know what the hell they are doing when it comes to producing. Films like “Ghostbusters” and the last run of “Spider-Man” … Read More New Trailer: Venom – Official Trailer #2

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)

2012 Oscars Challenge: [24] My Week With Marilyn & 2 Acting Noms

[22 OUT OF 46 FILMS REMAINING]-[18 DAYS TO OSCARS] Playing a well-known historical figure is tough. Especially one as well-known as Marilyn Monroe. The difficulty comes in being compared to that figure and never quite adding up to what people expect from that role. Marilyn was never nominated for an Academy Award, so Michelle Williams being nominated playing Monroe is quite the accomplishment and … Read More 2012 Oscars Challenge: [24] My Week With Marilyn & 2 Acting Noms

For Your Consideration 2011: “My Week With Marilyn”

With her performance in “My Week With Marilyn”, Michelle Williams looks to get nominated for Best Actress two years in a row (last year for her performance in “Blue Valentine” aside Ryan Gosling). Though Eddie Redmayne has yet to make a name for himself, his performance should probably also be recognized. Besides the acting awards, I would be surprised to see this film nominated … Read More For Your Consideration 2011: “My Week With Marilyn”

Movie Review: Mammoth (2009)

MAMMOTH BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLJUNE 22, 2010 Enter into “Mammoth” with an open mind. The film is slow and rather uneventful, yet real and inspiring. No stunning performances or moments that stuck out. The film felt natural and gave off a documentary-like quality. The story is nicely done, with the editing a huge factor in the storytelling. Every cut mattered. Each cut directed your attention … Read More Movie Review: Mammoth (2009)
