Early Best Actress Predictions – Special Features #5

Same procedure as last week, folks! This week, I am taking a look at the Best Actress category at the forthcoming Oscars. Are Emma Stone, Kate Winslet, or the legend that is Meryl Streep getting another golden statue, or will someone new get to finally give a speech with an Oscar in-hand? (more…)

REVIEW: Blade Runner 2049 (2017)

The following is a review of Blade Runner 2049 – Directed by Denis Villeneuve

Filmmaking is a business, and some business decisions just do not make sense. Indeed, some might say it makes no sense to make Blade Runner 2049 under the conditions that it has been. The original Blade Runner, which was directed by Ridley Scott, was originally met with mixed reviews and, to the best of my knowledge, it didn’t find much success at the box office. (more…)

Box Office Predictions – October 2017

Blade Runner 2049 (Warner Bros.); The Snowman (Universal).

I’m, honestly, still shocked by how well It has done in theaters around the world. It’s amazing. But even though I’ve got a lot of opening weekend’s to predict this month, there is really only one movie that I want to talk about right now: Blade Runner 2049. (more…)

CLASSIC REVIEW: Blade Runner (1982)

The following is a review of Blade Runner: The Final Cut – Directed by Ridley Scott

When people want to start reading comic books with their favorite characters from the big screen, they often become very confused about where to start. There are so many different versions, issues, and volumes that it is not an easy hobby to start. Similarly, some movies and franchises seem too complicated to get into. Sometimes people say they won’t start watching Star Trek or Star Wars because, to them, it feels like you need an extensive guide to start. (more…)

Early Best Actor Predictions – Special Features #4

A couple of weeks ago, I released my early predictions for Best Picture at the 90th Academy Awards. This week, I’m looking at another category. Last year, Casey Affleck won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance as Lee Chandler in Manchester by the Sea. But what about next year? Is it finally time for Gyllenhaal or Oldman, or will Hanks or Day-Lewis nab yet another win? (more…)

REVIEW: Icarus (2017 – Documentary)

Release Poster – Netflix

The following is a short review of Icarus – A Netflix Documentary

I enjoy watching the Tour de France. In fact, if you go back and search for the Tour on this site, then I’m pretty sure you’ll find an article or two. I watch the Tour every year, thus I am awfully familiar with doping allegations and sinners like Lance Armstrong. Naturally, this documentary intrigued me, but I didn’t think it would be as captivating as it, ultimately, is. (more…)

REVIEW: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017)

The following is a review of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword – Directed by Guy Ritchie

I’m not one of those people who is an expert on Arthurian mythology, but I do quite enjoy the story as a whole. As a matter of fact, back when this film was referred to as ‘Knights of the Round Table,’ I was extremely excited for the film.

But when the film was pushed to 2017, I sort of lost interest in it, to be honest with you. Now, I’ve seen King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, or, as I’d like to call it, Guy Ritchie’s Gods of Egypt, if Gods of Egypt included Arthurian mythology. (more…)
