    AFI Fest Review: ‘Deerskin’ Makes a Dark Mockery of Mockumentary

    Quentin Dupieux’s “Deerskin” made a brutal splash as part of this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Opening the “Directors’ Fortnight” program, the French black comedy proved that the provocative auteur is still capable of surprising even those expecting the unexpected. Having been conditioned to the violent character study chaos of $1 billion-dollar grosser “Joker,” “Deerskin” won’t […] More

    Six Spot: Which Actor Missed A Step On Their Way To Oscar in 2011?

    Our tenth entry in the Six Spot series is a perfect ten! The 2011 Best Actor race was filled with a lot of interesting narratives. The war of two A-list movie-stars dominated the headlines at the time. However, Jean Dujardin, star of the Best Picture winner “The Artist,” bested both Clooney and Pitt to win. All throughout […] More

    The Monuments Men (★★½)

    Well now, I certainly can see now why this movie was bumped from the 2013 awards season. George Clooney‘s The Monuments Men isn’t a bad film at all, but it is a rather disappointing one, and probably best suited to be a bit removed from its betters in the Oscar rush. On its own, this […] More

    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.

    Continuing the Best Films by the Studios Series. The Weinstein Company, the name that’s synonymous with Oscar-bait projects that gathers excitement from awards lovers everywhere and manages to get shortlisted in dozens of categories, even when the odds are not in their favor.  Harvey Weinstein, love him or hate him, is one of the most […] More

  • Oscar Circuit – Supporting Actor Contenders from the Same Film

    Best Supporting Actor is a category that is completely up in the air until nearly all the contenders are seen.  It’s hard to tell who will be a cameo appearance in a film and who will have substance to bring themselves to the Dolby Theater.  After Alexander Payne’s Nebraska bowed at the 2013 Cannes Film […] More

  • Last Year’s Winners Streep, Dujardin, Spencer and Plummer Return to Present at Oscars

    As is the case almost every Oscar ceremony that I can remember, the previous year’s Oscar winners in the four acting categories will return to present at the Academy Awards. This means Meryl Streep, Jean Dujardin, Octavia Spencer and Christopher Plummer will all be in attendance at the presentation. The four previous winners join Mark Wahlberg […] More
