    Top 10: Best Award Winning Family Films (0 submissions)

    The family-oriented film has been a staple of Hollywood since the beginning of cinema. The act of going to the theater became a commonplace family tradition as early as the 1920s. Thus, the most wide-reaching of films had to appeal to an audience of all ages. These films have grown and evolved, and with the […] More

    Six Circuit: Which 2000 Best Director Hopeful Got Shut Out For Double Steven Soderbergh Nominations?

    Welcome to the forty-third entry in our Six Circuit series. Rules prohibit actors from being nominated twice in the same category. That’s why performers like Kate Winslet pull “category fraud” to try and earn nominations in both lead and supporting (see the 2008 race).

    Film Review: ‘Welcome to Marwen’ Isn’t a Compelling Invitation

    A good tearjerker is hiding within “Welcome to Marwen,” buried beneath technological quirk and poor pacing. Robert Zemeckis, in turning the documentary “Marwencol” into a feature film, has focused on all the wrong aspects. Where the doc felt intimate and personal, this is unnecessarily broad. The creative forces feel like their animated sequences are the […] More

    Dwayne Johnson to Star in Robert Zemeckis ‘The King,’ a King Kamehameha Biopic

    Dwayne Johnson has had a rocky year compared to his box office surge in 2017. Perhaps the most disappointing film in his cap so far this year is “Skyscraper,” which felt like it should have been bigger. “Rampage” did better than expected, but still failed to gross $100 million domestically (although it got $99.3 mil).

    ‘Welcome To Marwen’ Gets Pushed To December

    On the surface, “Welcome to Marwen” seems like a potentially strong Academy Award player. Based on an award winning documentary, helmed by Oscar winner Robert Zemeckis, and starring Steve Carell? Yeah, that’s pretty promising stuff. Then, the Trailer dropped, which looks really interesting, but has a decidedly non awards feel to it. That being said, […] More

    Tom Hanks’ Sci-Fi Movie ‘Bios’ Gets a Release Date

    If there’s one genre that Tom Hanks has not thoroughly dominated yet in his career, it’s science fiction. We’ve seen Hanks in a multitude of action (or at least war) films, biopics, comedies, and prestige pictures, but sci-fi has mostly eluded him. There’s been some brushes with it, like the recent “The Circle,” but he’s […] More

    Film Review: ‘Allied’ Looks Classy Yet Winds Up Predictable

    What a missed opportunity. All of the ingredients are found within “Allied” to result in a prime piece of Oscar bait. You have Academy Award winners in director Robert Zemeckis, as well as stars Marion Cotillard and Brad Pitt. Nominee Steven Knight penned the screenplay. The list goes on. And yet, “Allied” feels like a […] More
