Best Sci-Fi Film: When James Cameron says that Gravity is “the best space film ever done,” well, what else do you have to say? In my humble opinion, Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity is the best space movie I have seen. It is perfect. It is outstanding at every level, from Cuarón’s groundbreaking state-of-the-art direction to the convincing performances to the edge-of-your-seat thrill ride script, finding a problem with this film will be almost impossible. What is even more outstanding is the perfect balance between high valued commercial entertainment and artistic filmmaking. It’s 3D is breathtaking and revolutionary, you empathize with the characters, you’re wowed by the visual grandeur, your heart pounds at its relentless claustrophobic pace and you can’t believe you experienced all of it in 90 minutes. It’s frightening, harrowing, and uplifting.
One of the most important film festivals in the world is the Toronto International Film Festival. Out of the more than 300 movies presented there, we are giving you what we consider were the Top 10! Some films that garnered a ton of buzz going in, but couldn’t maintain it going out. Some of those were August: Osage County, Labor Day, The Fifth Estate, Life of Crime and The F Word. If we had a Top 20, I would have added them. In the meantime enjoy The Top 10 Best Films From TIFF 2013!Read More
September marks the end of summer movies in Hollywood and begins its transition towards the release of award winning films. Note my use of the word transition. Utilizing that word means that September only possesses 2 movies that have any real aspirations at being nominated or winning anything come Oscar time – Salinger for Best Documentary and Prisoners for a few nominations. This month also brings a plethora of documentaries. Almost half of the films on this list are documentaries. The rise in the genre is getting stronger by the year and I feel is becoming our new literature for facts. Ironically, Michael Moore, the best representative of the genre is nowhere to be found. You will find on this list everything from one of James Gandolfini’s final performances on film, The Beatles back on the screen and the mysterious universe of bodybuilding. Without further delay, here are the 12 Must See Movies of September!Read More
