Film Review: The Martian (★★★½)

Film Review: The Martian (★★★½)

As a huge fan of Andy Weir‘s novel of the same name, I was just as nervous as I was pumped for Ridley Scott‘s adaptation of The Martian. I’d loved the idea of filmmaker Drew Goddard writing and directing this film version, but when Goddard left (he’s still the screenwriter here though) and Scott took […]

Well, today another missive from Watney and the crew of the mission to the red planet has come out, helping to […]

Watch the New Trailer for Ridley Scott’s ‘The Martian’ with Matt Damon

The world has been awaiting the return of Ridley Scott for years now.  After making huge missteps like “A Good Year,” “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” and “The Counselor,” the Academy Award nominated director looks to possibly be roaring back with the adaptation of Andy Weir’s “The Martian.” Starring Academy Award winner Matt Damon, the film is […]

New Promo for Ridley Scott’s ‘The Martian’ introduces us to the ARES 3 Crew

After basically a Trailer filled week highlighting some potential Oscar players, the start of a new week begins with a Promo that’s essentially a tease for the film I most want to see this year. It’s The Martian, which happens to be the movie adaptation of the best book I’ve read in some time. Written […]

Oscars 2016: Is It Time for Pixar to Join the Picture Club?

Another season has come and gone.  “Birdman” and Fox Searchlight are sitting on top of the throne, and will remain there for the entire year.  What started out as a seemingly predictable year, quickly turned on its head.  It looked like “Birdman” at Telluride, “The Imitation Game” at TIFF, “Birdman” again at NYFF, “Boyhood” took […]

New Trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Crimson Peak’

New Trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Crimson Peak’

Perhaps it’s heresy to put this out there, but I find filmmaker Guillermo del Toro incredibly streaky. His work always looks great in initial clips, but the full length features can sometimes leave more than a little bit to be desired. Still, del Toro is as ambitious as anyone out there, so whenever he’s got […]

Interview: J.C. Chandor talks ‘A Most Violent Year’ and his next project ‘Deepwater Horizon’

This may not seem like an overt compliment, but I assure you that it is one: J.C. Chandor likes to talk, and talk a lot. When we plopped down on a chair/couch (respectively) for a one on one interview during the Press Day for his new film A Most Violent Year, I’d already sat in on […]
