2013 Summer Movie Preview: Part 1

2013 Summer Movie Preview: Part 1

Last year, celestial angels with trumpets rang in the summer movie season. It was going to be the best ever—The Dark Knight Rises, Prometheus, The Avengers, The Bourne Legacy, an original Pixar movie, and more. Even if the season didn’t end up meeting expectations, there was lots of good stuff out there. This year, it’s […]

Ranking the 2013 Oscar Nominees

Ranking the 2013 Oscar Nominees

It’s become an annual tradition for me to rip off In Contention’s annual tradition of ranking the Oscar nominees from best to worst. I did it in 2011. I did it in 2012. See my 2013 rankings below. But first, a list of the films I regrettably haven’t caught up with yet: Mirror Mirror, Chasing […]

2013 OSCAR PREDICTIONS: A Truly Wide-Open Race

As good as 2012 was for films in general, it’s been an even better Oscar race. Unpredictability reigns supreme in a field filled with mostly great films.

To shoehorn that film into a maybe-it-is-maybe-it-isn’t Alien prequel is bold to the point of being a little foolhardy. This is, for better or worse, Prometheus, and you certainly won’t see a film quite like it this year […]

Five Reasons Comic-Con 2011 Rocked

Five Reasons Comic-Con 2011 Rocked

Despite some of the higher-profile projects on the horizon (The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, Man of Steel) not showing up in San Diego, Comic-Con 2011 was quite busy. The stars showed up, secret footage was unveiled, some gloriously geeky tidbits of movie knowledge were dropped, and now, we’ve got a whole bunch of new […]
