Oscars Watch: 2015 Dallas-Fort Worth Film Critics Association Awards

Although “Spotlight” again takes the top spot, finally a different director lands in the Best Director category, giving Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (“The Revenant”) a win. If he were to do so at the Oscars, he’d be in a very small club of directors that received back to back Oscars for Directing, having won last year for “Birdman.” Leonardo DiCaprio follows suit and wins for … Read More Oscars Watch: 2015 Dallas-Fort Worth Film Critics Association Awards

HER // I have never smiled so much or felt so much emotion during a film this year than I did with “Her”. Feeling the presence of a smile while you’re watching a film is a rare thing, at least for me. The immense glow of emotion coming from this film is brought on, not just by the lavish performances, but by the eclectic … Read More One Minute Review: Her (2013) [5.0]

New Trailer: Her – Official Trailer #1

HER // It’s about time Spike Jonze goes back to directing sincere, quirky films that put him on the map (“Adaptation.”, “Being John Malkovich”). “Her” is an emotional romance film, except instead of a man and a woman falling madly in love, it’s a man falling in love with a computer operating system.
