The Wolf of Wall Street

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 5 Best Leading Male Performances of 2013

The 5 Best Leading Male Performances of 2013

I have way too many fragments of a Best Performances of 2013 list to not write something up.

Predicting the 2014 Golden Globes Winners

This Sunday, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will carve for itself a unique place in the 2013/2014 awards season. How do I know? Because it must. There still isn’t much consensus among this year’s major categories. The critics groups like 12 Years a Slave and Her. American Hustle and Gravity have loads of support—some from […]

2014 Golden Globes Predictions

2014 Golden Globes Predictions

I don’t know why I bother every year to dip my ignorant toe into the muddy pool that is the Hollywood Foreign Press Association every year. A clueless (when it comes to these awards) prognosticator plus a traditionally asinine voting body has the potential to make this post look awfully foolish in the not-too-distant future. […]

Click on over to my 2014 Oscar Predictions page to see everything I’m forecasting in the major categories.

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 […]

Early 2014 Oscar Predictions

Early 2014 Oscar Predictions

We aren’t but 48 hours removed from one of the better Oscar ceremonies in recent memory, and my eye is already fixed on 2014. Sad, but true. To say these 2014 Oscar predictions should be taken with a grain of salt is the understatement of the year so far, but I’ll say this: Last year […]
