It was a big morning for the 87th edition of the Oscars. BIRDMAN amassed the most amount of nominations with 9, as well as the artistic comedy THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL. I’ve been predicting big for THE IMITATION GAME and it came in huge with 8 nominations, but the big surprise came with AMERICAN SNIPER with 6 nods as well as BOYHOOD with 6. But no bigger pleasure is the small indie that could – WHIPLASH received a whopping 5 nominations. Read More

Arguably the most anticipated movie of 2015 is also the most erotically charged. Literature student Anastasia Steele’s life changes forever when she meets handsome, yet tormented, billionaire Christian Grey.
A perfect storm of legacy franchises, reboots of classic films and sequels of popular box-office fare has hit 2015 like a monsoon. Between Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Avengers: Age of Ultron, James Bond’s Spectre, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 and Jurassic World, Hollywood should break all types of box-office records just on these 5 films alone. Take a look at the 43 movies that are must-sees this year. Read More
The “1-4-0″: #Paddington means well. It’s an animated film full of inventiveness and charm, regrettably, it’s very predictable and not narratively compelling enough.Read More
Best Documentary: A tie for ‘Jodorowsky’s Dune’ and ‘Life Itself’. So many great documentaries this year. These two though are the standouts. Jodorowsky’s Dune made me dream again and Life Itself made me cry for what felt like a personal loss. With Dune, oh what could have been. If Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky had his way he would have created the greatest sci-fi film ever made. With the likes of Orson Welles, Mick Jagger, David Carradine and Salvador Dali, featuring music by Pink Floyd and art by HR Giger and Jean ‘Moebius’ Giraud, Jodorowsky was poised to change cinema forever.
For the second straight year, I thought of making “The Best Movies Of 2014… By Genre“. Unlike most Top 10 lists you see this time of year from some websites or critics, I use a list that allows you to reference movies by your mood. In other words, if you’re feeling like laughing or snuggling up with someone, you can check our top movie in comedy or romance, etc. I believe these guides are much more to the point of the movie viewing experience. So let’s get to it!

** On December 10th, 2014, a group of critics were invited by Sony Pictures to watch – THE INTERVIEW. I was one of them. Here are my thoughts on the now historic and controversial action-comedy, which most likely will never be seen.
The “1-4-0″: #TheInterviewMovie is an above average comedy which though isn’t a masterpiece, it did provide some hearty laughs and a memorably cool Kim Jung-un character. Read More
