Top Ten Greatest Performances of All-Time (Clayton Davis)

We’ve come to the end.  No more analyzing, no more criticizing, just putting it all out there.  When we began these “10 Greatest” series two years ago, I wasn’t sure what they would turn into.  It’s easy just to say, “I like movies.”  It’s even harder to describe what they really mean to you.  Film […]


Top Ten Greatest Performances of All Time (Karen Peterson)

When I found out we were doing this Top Ten Greatest Performances of All Time series, I was immediately nervous about it. For a couple of reasons. First, how was I ever going to narrow down thousands of performances into my personal Ten Greatest? And second, I could very well be run right out of […]


Top Ten Greatest Performances of All-Time (Michael Balderston)

I hate the word ‘greatest’ when it comes to making a list like this. The word is so definitive for something so imprecise and personal. I have loved reading all the lists from my fellow Awards Circuit staffers because they picked some great performances that didn’t spring to mind for me initially, but definitely deserve […]


Top 10 Greatest Performances of All Time (Sam Coffey)

Assembling a list like this is…daunting…impossible…embarrassing…satisfying. When Clayton tasked we Staff Writers with this assignment, my Top 6 performances immediately made my list—the order, however, fluctuated hourly.  But how do assemble by Top 10 Greatest Performances of All Time? When looking at lists like this published on other sites, I gloss over performances that I […]

Noah (★★★)

If there’s two things out there that I really don’t enjoy, it’s stories from the bible and fantasy epics in the vein of The Lord of the Rings franchise. So, it’s with some manner of surprise that I can report that Darren Aronofsky has been able to capture my appreciation with Noah, a presumably very […]


No Country for Latin Women at the Oscars

WOMEN IN CINEMA: When it comes to handing out Oscars for acting, the Academy has always maintained gender equality. Female actors are recognized just as their male counterparts are. However, when it comes to Latina/Latina Americans, they are prodigiously under-represented at the Academy Awards. Throughout the Academy Awards’ history – we’re talking back to 1927, […]

Thor: The Dark World (★★★½)

You know a franchise is a keeper when its films start becoming comfortable in their own skins, self-assured and confident with every grand — and I mean GRAND — gesture they make (visual and otherwise). Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World is total proof of this. Right from the start, it absorbs us with an aura […]

New Trailer for ‘Red 2’

Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, and Mary-Louise Parker are back for the sequel to the action/comedy film, Red. In Red 2, the returning gang will be joined by Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Brian Cox. I think anyone who has seen the first film knows what to expect, and this snippet from the synopsis […]
