Snowpiercer

Plan the Ultimate Snowmageddon Movie Marathon

Plan the Ultimate Snowmageddon Movie Marathon

Potentially record snowfall is set to hit Boston, New York, and other areas along the East coast over the next 24 hours. It’s bad news for multiplexes—American Sniper might only make $20 million a day instead of $30 million—but the folks over at Netflix must be giddy. If you’re snowed in this week and looking […]

The 20 Best Performances of 2014

The 20 Best Performances of 2014

It was a great year for acting, and I still haven’t seen some of the year’s most acclaimed performances. If David Oyelowo (Selma), Julianne Moore (Still Alice), Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game), J.K. Simmons (Whiplash), Timothy Spall (Mr. Turner), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Beyond the Lights), or anyone else bowls me over the way they have so […]

The Best Films of 2014

The Best Films of 2014

It seems you’re supposed to open your end-of-year favorite films list with an assessment of the movie year as a whole, but I’ve never really been interested in that. Good, bad, or somewhere in between—I have no idea what I’d say about 2014 other than I love the 20 films I’m writing about today and […]

The Best Movies of 2014 So Far

The Best Movies of 2014 So Far

We’re here, finally, on the cusp of an exciting fall movie season, and I’m looking back and a weird-ass year so far. Not bad, per se, just…weird. I rated a lot of movies 3.5 stars or better. I thought my annual trip to the Tribeca Film Festival was as fruitful as its ever been. Yet […]

Snowpiercer Review

Snowpiercer Review

RATING: (3.5 STARS) After months and months of waiting, wondering whether the notorious Weinstein Company would allow director Bong Joon-ho to share his true vision for Snowpiercer with the world, the film is finally here (in theaters and on VOD), and surprisingly, it’s awfully straightforward. That isn’t to say it’s not a little weird, but […]

2014 Summer Movie Preview: Part 2

2014 Summer Movie Preview: Part 2

I can’t remember a summer—hell, I can’t remember any period of time—during which a crop of indies was so far and away better/more promising than its blockbuster counterpart. My 10 most-anticipated major Hollywood motion pictures list included no honorable mentions, and if I’m being honest, I’m not extremely excited about a few items I actually […]

14 Films for 2014

14 Films for 2014

A yearly tradition continues. I don’t much enjoy these early-year looking-ahead lists; I’ll still be in 2013 mode until I catch up with everything that eluded me before the turn of the calendar. Nevertheless, on a day like today one can’t help survey the calendar and mark his or her most-anticipated movie days. And 2014 […]

Projecting the Cannes 2013 Lineup

Projecting the Cannes 2013 Lineup

Now that the 66th annual Cannes International Film Festival (May 15-May 26, 2013) has its jury president (Lincoln director Steven Spielberg), speculation over what films will compete for the 2013 Palme d’Or has intensified. I’ve identified 30 titles that seem like plausible Cannes selections. It’s impossible to say whether any or all will be ready […]
