    EMMY NOMINATIONS PREDICTIONS 2020

    EMMY NOMINATIONS PREDICTIONS 2020
    It’s been a very strange year and I have not been posting much but as the EMMY nominations are being announced next week I thought it would be a good time to get back in the swing of things and lay out some predictions. Since I don’t watch comedies, my predictions are only in the […]

    WESTWORLD RECAP S3EP1 PARCE DOMINE

    I had the time this weekend to watch several episodes from Season One and Season Two before the Season Three premiere Sunday night. Show runners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy have taken another bold move, as they did with Season Two and have ventured into a whole new direction with speed and bravado. This a […]

    OSCAR NOMINATIONS 2020

    OSCAR NOMINATIONS 2020
    It’s that time! Oscar Time! My high holy day! As award season has gone on its become pretty clear to see the trends. There could always be a surprise here and there but those usually happen in the supporting actor and actor categories not the top 5 or 6 awards. It’s been a very good […]

    1917

    1917
    The recent death of Kirk Douglas reminded me of the great World War I film Paths Of Glory (1957) in which he starred in. It was a dark, almost satirical film about the horrors of war. A very young Stanley Kubrick brought his sharp visual style and it ends with a scene in a bar […]

    UNCUT GEMS

    UNCUT GEMS
    Film Noir is more than a genre, it’s a feeling. After World War Two, you started seeing films, generally considered as ‘B’ films, about darker subjects, losers and femme fatales and doomed lives. They centered as much around greed and lust as love and dreams. The characters could be detectives and criminals but also cowboys […]

    LITTLE WOMEN

    LITTLE WOMEN
    First off, I’ve never read the book and I’ve only seen the 1994 film version of Little Women directed by Gillian Armstrong so that’s where I’m coming from. I love Greta Gerwig and I have to admit, I was surprised when she had decided to do a remake of Little Women as her follow up […]

    OSCAR NOMINATION PREDICTIONS 2019

    OSCAR NOMINATION PREDICTIONS 2019
    Best Actor Joaquin Phoenix is a sure thing for Joker as is Adam Driver for Marriage Story and Leonardo DiCaprio (LDC) for Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Antonio Banderas deserves to get his first nomination for Pain and Glory. I think Christian bale is going to pick up his 3rd Best Actor nomination for […]

    KNIVES OUT

    KNIVES OUT
    Ya Rian Johnson took a lot of heat for The Last Jedi but there should be nothing but praise for his latest! Written and directed by Johnson, Knives Out has an all star cast and is a cleverly written and fun whodunnit that had me guessing until the end. It’s hard to craft a whodunnit […]
