It’s the Pictures Podcast: Episode 3

It’s the Pictures Podcast: Episode 3

Spoilers abound when John and Max go deep on their favorite movies with ambiguous endings in the third episode of It’s the Pictures, but there’s nothing ambiguous about this episode’s conclusion as Max discusses his love for Jeff Nichols’ Midnight Special. Listen to the episode over at our libsyn feed. (We’ll be in iTunes soon!) […]

What Are the Best Movies of the Decade So Far?

What Are the Best Movies of the Decade So Far?

It’s hard to imagine we’re five years removed from the myriad “Best Movies of the Decade” posts of 2009. That was fun, and each intervening year since has produced more than enough titles worthy of appearing on such lists. Of course, most of those titles won’t eventually make it when we get to the end […]

Christopher Nolan Movies

Christopher Nolan Movies

Christopher Nolan movies carry a mark that’s easy to spot from a mile away. Forget if you can the almost overwhelming hype that, like clockwork, accompanies each and every Christopher Nolan movie (or at least every film of his since The Dark Knight), Christopher Nolan movies also feature labyrinthine stories, blaring scores, and Michael Caine. […]

Top 10 Leonardo DiCaprio Performances

Top 10 Leonardo DiCaprio Performances

It’s kind of amazing that everyone’s favorite heartthrob circa 1997, the guy who gave us Jack Dawson himself, has turned into one of cinema’s most fascinating, exciting, and reliable actors. While a gold statue has still managed to elude him, Leonardo DiCaprio has a resume many actors would kill for. He’s Scorsese’s new golden boy […]

Ranking Christopher Nolan Films

Ranking Christopher Nolan Films

His first movie came out in 1998. Since then, Christopher Nolan has done and accomplished a lot. He has three Oscar nominations under his belt (none for directing, but two for Original Screenplay [Inception and Memento] and one for Best Picture [Inception]). DGA and Golden Globe nominations, BAFTA awards, Independent Spirit Awards, and much more—not […]

Ranking the 2011 Oscar Nominees

Ranking the 2011 Oscar Nominees

I’m totally stealing this idea from In Contention, but I thought it would be fun to look at the Oscar field as a whole this year. I’ve seen 29 of the nominated features. I’m missing: Another Year, The Wolfman, Barney’s Version, The Way Back, The Tempest, In a Better World, Incendies, Outside the Law, Dogtooth, […]

2011 OSCAR PREDICTIONS: Final Forecast

2011 OSCAR PREDICTIONS: Final Forecast

Nothing like waiting to the last minute, right? It’s finally here, and frankly, I can’t wait until it’s over. I’m very ready to move on to what will hopefully be a great crop of films in 2011. But here’s what I think will be taking home the prizes this year, as well as what could […]

The Ten Best Films of 2010

The Ten Best Films of 2010

10.) The Kids Are All Right Lisa Cholodenko’s dramedy resonates so strongly because she manages to make this “non-traditional” family incredibly relatable. I found myself taken aback with just how insightful it is, how clever the writing is, and how strong the performances are. 9.) Biutiful Only a fool would expect an Iñárritu film to […]

The Ten Best Films of 2010 So Far

The Ten Best Films of 2010 So Far

Most people compiled lists of their favorite films from January through June—a first-half of the year top 10. I decided to wait. I hadn’t seen enough films through the end of June to make such a list worthwhile. But with the end of summer upon us, I thought it was appropriate to do such a […]

Inception Review

Inception Review

RATING: (4 STARS) The hype had been building up for months, years even—ever since “The Dark Knight” blew people’s minds in 2008. With the keys to the kingdom, just what was Christopher Nolan capable of? “Inception” answers that question—he’s capable of creating an absolutely wild world in which anything is possible and everything is believable. […]

2010 Summer Movie Preview

2010 Summer Movie Preview

As weather heats up, so does anticipation for summer blockbuster season. For many (myself included), this season can be great fun, but it’s also kind of like a minefield—one week you get Star Trek, the next you get Angels and Demons. So consider this your guide to navigate the minefield—my preview and expectations for the […]

2011 Oscar Predictions: Forecasting the Year Ahead

2011 Oscar Predictions: Forecasting the Year Ahead

The 2011 Oscars are far off (thank goodness), but it’s always fun to look at the year and guess what might be the best of the year. Of course, many of the films have yet to been seen (hell, some of them might not even be coming out this year), but that’s part of the […]
