Top 10 Movies of the “Filmspotting Era”

Top 10 Movies of the “Filmspotting Era”

Webster’s Dictionary defines Filmspotting as “a force of good in the universe.” Or maybe that was Rian Johnson. Whatever the case, my favorite film podcast turned 500 this past week, and to celebrate the occasion it held a live event where hosts Adam and Josh counted down their top five favorite films of the “Filmspotting […]

The Ten Best Films of 2009

The Ten Best Films of 2009

This was a very good year in film, and my first (partial) year as a blogger. Below are the ten films that have best stood the test of time. 10.) In the Loop Profanity has never been better used than in this frightening satire of government ineptitude. The film is very British and very, very […]

Ranking the 2000s Best Picture Winners

Ranking the 2000s Best Picture Winners

10.) A Beautiful Mind (2001) It’s just another biopic in my opinion. The film is emotionally involving but not in the least bit challenging or unique. Crowe and Connelly give strong performances, but Best Picture? Really? 9.) Gladiator (2000) This is a great example of summer entertainment. It’s a lot of fun, and the battle […]

2010 OSCARS: Recapping the Show

2010 OSCARS: Final Guesses Before the Big Night

Tonight is the big night. It seems like this awards season has gone on FOREVER so I’m relieved it finally ends. I’ve talked ad nauseum about the nominees, so now I’m simply going to list who or what I think will win, followed by who or what I think should win (won’t discuss foreign, doc, […]

The Hurt Locker Review

The Hurt Locker Review

RATING: (4 STARS) Real suspense is hard to achieve. It’s easy to throw in a shock or two into a film to keep the audience on edge. To sustain that feeling over a prolonged time is a challenge, but it’s something Kathryn Bigelow achieves in her uncompromising war film The Hurt Locker. Director after director […]

2010 Golden Globes Predictions

2010 Golden Globes Predictions

Tonight is the 67th annual Golden Globe Awards. The Hollywood Foreign Press Associate (HFPA) is an interesting group. Over the last five years, only one eventual Best Picture winner at the Oscars (Slumdog Millionaire) took home the Best Picture Globe in its respective category. So will this be a litmus test of who’s in the […]
