    INTERVIEW: Ethan Hawke talks ‘Boyhood’ and ‘Predestination’

    There’s really no other way to put it…Ethan Hawke is on one hell of a ride right now. He’s been pretty consistent his whole career, rarely appearing in anything that really made you wonder about his choices, but now he’s just on another planet. Basically, beginning in 2013 when Before Midnight blew most of us […] More

    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 […] More

    Tim’s Vermeer (★★★½)

    I’m hardly an art connoisseur (at least in terms of paintings…if we’re talking film, that’s obviously a different story), but man did this movie ever capture my attention. Yes, Tim’s Vermeer completely won me over back when I initially saw it back at the New York Film Festival, far more than I was expecting it […] More

    Best Original Song eligibility of ‘Alone Yet Not Alone’ being challenged?

    This is a bit of recent Academy Awards controversy that slipped past my attention over the past week or so, but I wanted to catch up with it now and share it with you all. Apparently, the out of nowhere Best Original Song nomination for Alone Yet Not Alone has not only surprised everyone, but […] More

    Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan talk ‘Fruitvale Station’

    Back at the beginning of December (which technically is last year…crazy), I was invited to participate in a roundtable interview with Fruitvale Station writer/director Ryan Coogler as well as star Michael B. Jordan in advance of its release on home video. The film hits Blu-Ray and DVD this week, right before the Oscar nominations, and […] More

    Her (★★★★)

    I’ve been dropping hints about how much I love Spike Jonze‘s new film Her since I saw it at the New York Film Festival. Now, I can really and truly get into it…Her is not only the best film I’ve seen in 2013 by far, not only the best film I’ve seen in years, but […] More

    The Wolf of Wall Street (★★★★)

    I remember the very first time I saw the initial trailer for Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street. To be honest, I didn’t really care for it. It seemed like something perhaps even beneath the legend (entertaining as it might have been), but I was actually pretty curious to see how Leonardo DiCaprio embraced […] More

    Long List for the 34th Golden Raspberry Awards – See what made the Worst List

    While most of the awards given out during this season surrounds the best that cinema has to offer, there’s also the Golden Raspberry awards, which goes in the exact opposite direction. They of course cite the worst films and performances of the year, and make their announcements right before the Academy Awards (both for nominations […] More

    Lone Survivor (★★★½)

    For most of the  two-hour plus running time of Peter Berg‘s true life war tale Lone Survivor, the film is content to simply be a very good action flick with a slightly deeper emotional underpinning than you’re expecting. It’s easily Berg’s best work to date, but you never quite understand why folks have raved. Then, […] More
