It’s the end of the month, and that means another awards show! Awards season isn’t slowing down, even when it seems like it’s slowing down. I’ve always been trying to figure out why this particular awards show is my favorite, but I think there’s a simple reason behind that. It’s the shortest and most to the point. No obnoxious host or bad jokes, mainly, and it seems to breeze by quickly. How can you not like that?! Continue reading

It comes but once a year, and it’s well worth the wait. The annual celebration of film known as the “31 Days of Oscar”, presented by Turner Classic Movies (TCM), is now only days away. It’s the perfect opportunity for cinephiles to watch as many classics as they can! Continue reading

10 Years: “Catch and Release”

It’s not unusual for me to take an interest in romantic comedies. However, I can’t tell you why that is. I’ve always been a sucker for the romantic comedy. Mind you, I’m still typically very picky about what films I’ll see and then own, even within a specific genre. Some just can’t win me over and others are flat out bad. Continue reading

On Second Thought: “Resident Evil: Afterlife”

Normally I’d come up with something interesting, which would lead to a potential overall theme for the piece, but I can’t. I sat through this film. I was optimistic, but apparently no amount of optimism was ever going to help me. I don’t think it’ll ever help most people. This film and franchise has finally hit an incredibly low note. Continue reading

As a series goes on, ideas can sometimes come to a stall. The creative well is almost dry. No matter the previous film’s success, it could prove risky for another outing. Keeping things fresh is no longer as simple as it was before. With some franchises, this could backfire in big ways or could be of almost no consequence. I guess it’s going to come down to the audience and what type of film and franchise they’ve accepted and come to expect. Continue reading

Awards season is finally showing signs of winding down. That means you can start prepping for the few months you’ll get of rest before the cycle begins again. It’s a fun but exhausting one, and hopefully, like these past few years, it continues to be a stressful one. So many good films keep coming out, which makes it incredibly hard to know which films are most deserving. So many are, but so many simply can’t break through the noise that is the increasing hype of any given film. Which films will be fortunate enough to break through and receive that special distinction only select few films can ever achieve per year? Continue reading

On Second Thought: “Resident Evil: Apocalypse”

When one film is a success, make another. That’s the way it goes for sequels of all sorts, even those that aren’t asked for or that come years or decades later, and may still not have been asked for. It’s tough for Hollywood to put out a sequel that’s worthy of following an original film, but once in a while that does happen. Continue reading
