I can’t believe the year is almost over. It feels like just a few months ago that Split opened to shock and surprise from critics and fans alike, who had no idea what the movie really was. But the year is almost over, and therefore I have to prepare for the next I’m Jeffrey Rex Awards. This year, I’ve changed the rules for one category, and I’m also adding a couple more categories to the list of awards. (more…)
I was recently contacted by a short film director who asked me to show his short to my readers, followers, and whatnot. This isn’t the first time that I’ve been contacted. I’ve previously reviewed films made by directors who had approached me online.
But, the thing is, I don’t really review short films on this site. So, instead of reviewing the aforementioned director’s short film, I am here going to recommend two short films made by directors who in some way, shape, or form approached me. (more…)

It was just going to be the same kind of reaction post that I do every year, but then something happened. Warren Beatty had been given the wrong envelope. Faye Dunaway thus announced the wrong Best Picture winner. This is insane. Unbelievable. Moonlight is the real Best Picture winner. (more…)
It’s time for me to finally let go of 2016 by officially announcing my top ten films of 2016. I’ve said this multiple times at the beginning of 2017, but I just don’t think 2016 deserves to be known as a bad year for movies.
