Mirror Mirror (**½)

Presented as a live-action family film, Mirror Mirror is the first of two very different, but equally high profile 2012 adaptations of the iconic tale of a princess named Snow White and her quest in finding her handsome Prince Charming. Aiding in that pursuit, are seven dwarves who work with Snow White in helping her […]

Take This Waltz gets a new Trailer!

One of last year’s potential Oscar contenders that got pushed out of the race to this year was Sarah Polley’s film ‘Take This Waltz’. It had solid reviews from festivals, but just never really got going in 2011. Could this be the year that it gets some recognition? Well, it opens this June, and there’s […]

First Look at Hugh Jackman in Les Miserables!

This dropped a few days ago on various websites, but it got lost in the shuffle here, so we’re a few days behind on this one. Hey, it’s still worth displaying, so here it is regardless of time. This image is our first actual look at what the characters in Tom Hooper’s take on ‘Les […]

The Human Centipede in danger of not becoming a trilogy!

I know some of you are as morbidly curious about ‘The Human Centipede’ franchise (yes, it’s a full fledged franchise now) as I am, so this news of tension over script issues between filmmaker Tom Six and his would be returning star Dieter Laser might be of some interest. Apparently, lawsuits are the true horror […]

Weekend Openings (March 30-April 1)

This weekend, the odds will not be in favor of the two opening titles vying against The Hunger Games at the box office.  Strong word-of-mouth and momentum of ticket sales throughout the weekdays could see it score a jackpot that may even challenge Avatar’s record for second-weekend grosses. That’s not to say its take won’t […]

Trailer for ‘People Like Us’!

Maybe I’m more curious than most, but I’ve been keeping an eye on the film ‘People Like Us’ (formerly known as ‘Welcome To People’) for a little bit of time now. I haven’t had much to go on, but I’m a sucker for a dysfunctional family flick. The movie now has a Trailer to judge […]

‘American Idol’ Recap: Reviewing the Top 9

This week on American Idol, the standing ovations were at an all time rise, pun intended. I swear, there were about five standing ovations for the whole performance evening — an Idol record to be sure. These ridiculous moments of praise may be our next big drinking game following Melissa McCarthy’s “Scorsese” drinking game that […]

The slate of films for the Cannes Film Festival may be emerging…

We’re getting closer and closer to the start of the 65th Cannes Film Festival, and with so many titles still up in the air for inclusion, it’s an exciting time for festival junkies and awards nuts alike. So far, we only know that Wes Anderson’s film ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ will be playing the fest, but other […]

Get ready for ‘Anchorman 2’…

I freely admit that I’m not as big a fan of ‘Anchorman’ as most are (I still like it, but it isn’t the funniest film ever made or anything), but part of that might be that I’ve only seen it once and can’t quote it like a surprisingly large amount of the general public can. […]

‘The Master’ is officially headed to theaters on October 12th!

It’s been rumored for almost a month now that Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest film ‘The Master’ would be getting an October release date (we even had a previous news piece about it earlier this month here at The Awards Circuit), but we haven’t had any official timeframe given by The Weinstein Company. Well, that’s all […]

The Dictator gets a new Trailer!

So far, we’ve only seen a few short looks at the upcoming Sacha Baron Cohen film ‘The Dictator’, and honestly it looks like more of the same after ‘Borat’ and ‘Bruno’, only far less original looking. This new trailer has shown more of a plot, and makes me slightly more optimistic for the flick. Take […]
