With roles ranging from a magical witch to a struggling single mother, these five actresses are nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role in the upcoming 87th Annual Academy Awards.
Week three of The Bachelor left us with a few unmemorable departures and 17 women left in the running. Who’s on everyone’s mind from last week? Jillian and her censored booty, Britt who’s America’s newest sweetheart, the Ashleys both becoming crazier by the day and Kaitlyn and her man laugh. If you want to catch […]
For an eye-opening and humanizing perspective on a disease that you think you’re familiar with, Still Alice is the film to go see. The novel-turned-film, which was released into theatres on Jan. 16, addresses a condition that is so often a minor part of films and left unanalyzed in terms of its effects. This is […]
This past weekend, Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper blew away every reasonable estimate on box office earnings and took home $107 million in its opening three-day weekend and made it the highest-grossing film to premiere in January. That’s a figure of which most summer blockbusters would be envious and is uncommon for an R-rated picture opening in the midst […]
If you’re foaming at the mouth to get back to Westeros before the return of Game of Thrones on April 12, you’ll be able to do so on Jan. 30 exclusively in select IMAX theaters. HBO has remastered the last two episodes from season 4 (the extremely action-heavy “The Watchers on the Wall,” and the […]
Calling all hopeless romantics: Are you sitting down? Because I’m about to make your day. The good news is that Fifty Shades of Grey is not the only romantic film coming out in 2015. This year has everything: unexpected love, musicals and a new film from Mr. Cupid himself, Nicholas Sparks. So get out that […]
Things are finally on track for the show after two episodes that fell below the mark.
On Thursday, the 87th Academy Award nominations were released to the public. There was a plethora of exceptional films released in 2014 and I am one to believe the winners that are soon to come from each of the 24 categories will leave all of us satisfied. As we grew up, going to see the latest […]
ABC’s producers managed to make all our dreams come true this week by combining The Bachelor with one of our favorite talk show hosts, Jimmy Kimmel, as he crashed Chris’s dating parade. This situation was as if America sent in a representative of what we’re all thinking at home. Not only did Kimmel give insightful dating […]
Now, where did we leave off? Eliminated contestant Kimberly ran back into the mansion to have a word with Chris. The conversation was painful to watch as she blubbered on about why she was destined to be there and Chris gave her a second chance. The large group of remaining ladies from round one forced […]
April’s unhappy with her job. Again.
The season seven premiere of Parks and Recreation puts us in the 2017, three years after the last season finale.
On Thursday, Jan. 15, the nominations for the 87th Annual Academy Awards will be announced. You can find part one of my predictions (which cover the directing and supporting acting categories) here. Best Actor Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) – Redmayne’s accomplishments in The Theory of Everything are nothing short of stunning. The physical transformation […]
All week, as word buzzed around about the Golden Globes this Sunday, it almost always followed with, “what are the Golden Globes, exactly?” The 72nd Golden Globes handed out awards last night ranging in all categories for both film and television. The Golden Globes welcomed back hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler for the third year in […]
“I’d rather chew glass and swallow it with a bag of hair than lose to her,” stated one of the lucky ladies competing on ABC’s 19th season of The Bachelor. The three-hour premiere included women holding roses, women in tears and me, polishing off a bottle of Chardonnay. The Monday highlight for millions across the country is […]
Glass shards from a wrecked car’s passenger window rain around a woman in slow motion. Unintelligible hysterical screaming gradually becomes prominent and clear. Then returns the woman suspended in fear from her nightmare and back into the real world. The first shot of The Babadook informs the viewer instantly that there is no time to rest while the Babadook is […]
It’s almost surprising nobody opened an Animal House Saloon until now. Once the establishment at 11th Avenue and Mill Street opens, Eugene will finally have the perfect tribute to a movie that has defined the town’s culture for nearly four decades – and given the film’s classic status, it seems likely the saloon will never […]
Films of 2014 certainly didn’t suffer from lack of variety. There were brilliant documentaries about whistleblowers and indie bands and bio-pics about enigma-decoding mathematicians and Olympic wrestlers. There was a reefer-toking detective, a boy growing up a dozen years in 3 hours and more robots pulverizing architecture. Without this medley of stories, it would have […]
As winter break comes to a close, you sadly bid adieu to all of your pals in Orange Is the New Black and Friday Night Lights with a final episode. Yet, a new month and year have just begun and the most recent releases on Instant Netflix make your binge watching possibilities endless. Watch three series in […]
2014 was a fascinating year for Hollywood that yielded a mix of fresh ideas, old standards that were taken under a new light, and some instant classics.
