Nesbø himself will adapt the novel for the screen. Further details on the project are not available […]

Film Review: ‘The Boss Baby’ Is The Loaded Diaper of Animated Comedies

Piecing together the logic of “The Boss Baby” is an absolute fool’s errand. Still, it’s better than actually following the plot of this cartoon, one that consistently lowers your expectations. Between the occasionally double edged humor that teeters on the edge of filth and the paper thin premise, there’s almost nothing here of worth. At […]

2017 Awards Circuit In Line Series: 25 Actors for an Oscar Nomination

Welcome to the official 2017 AWARDS CIRCUIT IN LINE SERIES! The Academy Awards get tons of flack for not rewarding actors and actresses in the prime of their careers. It often boils down to poor timing, but sometimes the Academy’s choices are downright baffling. Here at Awards Circuit, we will begin an annual tradition called […]

Labor Day (★★★)

Ever since it began screening at film festivals during the fall of 2013, Jason Reitman‘s latest movie Labor Day has gotten a pretty bad wrap. To be fair, it’s the worst film of Reitman’s impressive career so far, but to me at least, it’s still a decently good flick. Yes, it’s melodramatic and you can’t […]

The Great Gatsby (**½)

Baz Luhrmann sure knows how to bring the bombast to his take on The Great Gatsby, but in the end he’s just the latest filmmaker to fail in his attempt to bring the classic novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald to life. Luhrmann, along with co-writer Craig Pearce, relishes in trying to both bring the period […]

Weekend Openings: 11/2/2012

Forgive the obvious pun, but I’ve got my money on Ralph wrecking his competition at the box office this weekend to cap off a nice week of triumphs for Disney.  Robert Zemeckis is also back at it with the help of a non-animated Denzel Washington.  And perhaps a little stylized kung fu from a hip-hop […]

The Details (**)

I enjoy a black comedy as much as anyone, but I do require that there be a point to things. That’s an area where the well acted but hollow film ‘The Details’ utterly fails in regard to. Its tone is all over the place and never really figures out what it wants to be doing. […]

Hardy developed the idea for the film based on tales from his friends […]

Tobey Maguire will be in Jason Reitman’s ‘Labor Day’!

One day, Tobey Maguire will be an Oscar nominee. He made a strong play for a nod a few years ago with ‘Brothers’, and while he doesn’t always pick projects that properly utilize his skill set, he does however often work with interesting filmmakers. The Playlist is reporting here that he’s adding Jason Reitman to […]

The Amazing Spider-Man (*)

Remember the sheer joy on the face of Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker in the first Spider Man (2002) when he was discovering his powers, strength and agility, leaping from building to building and eventually finding the magic to shoot webs and swing from them. Like a modern-day Tarzan he mastered the whole swinging from […]

Re-visiting Gatsby (1974) Brings High Hopes Luhrmann’s adaptation

Francis Ford Coppola wrote the screenplay to the Jack Clayton directed film The Great Gatsby (1974), a banner year for cinema with some of the greatest films ever made. For those who hail 1939 as the greatest year in film history, I suggest they look hard at 1974 which is infinitely stronger. All in ’74 […]

First Look at Ang Lee’s ‘Life of Pi’
