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 […]

So, About Those 2015 Oscar Nominations…

What in the name of Dick Poop just happened?!?!?!? It was a wild morning that saw the announcement of the 2015 Oscar nominees, and I just can’t get past Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs’ all-time great mispronunciation of a name.

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 […]

2015 Oscar Predictions: First Guesses Before Fall Fests

It’s 2015 Oscar predictions time, so let’s dig the prognosticator’s hat out of the attic, dust it off, and take a look at the landscape of the 2015 Oscar race. If I’m being honest, though, I almost didn’t want to get involved with 2015 Oscar predictions at all. Last year’s Oscar season and the nonsense […]
