OSCARS: Who Got Snubbed?!?!

by Bryan Kluger on Jan 16th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

The 85th Academy Awards® will air live on Oscar® Sunday, February 24, 2013.

Well the Oscar nominations are in, which you can see by CLICKING HERE. There were some great nominees this year, but tons of stuff got snubbed. I can’t believe some of the misfires this year. There are tons of films and people that should have received a nomination. Here are some that got snubbed in my opinion.

Film Review: ‘Annihilation’!

by Bryan Kluger on Feb 23rd, 2018


Adapted screenplays are common these days as more studios seek out novelists for material inspiration. In the latest visual reworking, Director Alex Garland, who modernized artificial intelligence and gave us the ingenious ‘Ex Machina,’ shares his dexterity for the science fiction genre once again with ‘Annihilation.’ The film plants you into the surreal world of Jeff Vander Meer’s unique imagination; a place that is both cosmic and disconcerting. This biosphere venture is a daring and elegant investigation of impossibilities. Its complexity and terror-inducing thrills will not only cause cold sweats, but leave viewers mystified at the end of a strange trip.

‘Annihilation’ trailer is here!

by Bryan Kluger on Dec 13th, 2017

Based on Jeff VanderMeer’s best-selling Southern Reach Trilogy, Annihilation stars Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny and Oscar Isaac. It was written and directed by Alex Garland (Ex Machina, 28 Days Later). It looks so good and scary as hell. It has a lot of ‘Alien‘ and ‘Predator‘ vibes to it too. Perhaps this will be the better version of those movies that came out several years ago. The movie will release on February 23, 2018, which you can bet, I’ll be first in line for.

Film Review: ‘The Promise’!

by Bryan Kluger on Apr 21st, 2017

Audrey E., here….

maxresdefault

If done right, who doesn’t appreciate a muscular war film decorated with a cherry of passion on top? Based on true events, ‘The Promise,’ directed by Academy Award winning filmmaker Terry George (Hotel Rwanda), had the capacity to convey a burning love story intertwined with the real Armenian genocide during World War I. However, inspired thematic violence and even Christian Bale can’t guarantee your film’s success.

Here’s the Top 10 Music Films!

by Bryan Kluger on Jul 7th, 2016

Jonathan A., here…

curry

Ah, the timeless combination of film and music. The two have been married since the earliest days of film, all the way back to Don Juan in 1926, which starred the uber-hunky mustachioed John Barrymore and was the first film to include a synchronized musical score.  In fact, the first “talkie” film was 1927’s “The Jazz Singer,” which included a number of quaint musical performances and even a truly and horrifically inappropriate blackface sequence.  However, today we aren’t just here to discuss soundtracks, but rather to shine a spotlight on the movies where music is a main (if not THE main) theme throughout the film.

Film Review: ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’!

by Bryan Kluger on Dec 18th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

share_1200x627

I can’t believe it’s finally here. Ten years since the last ‘Star Wars‘ movie, which was ‘Episode III‘ by George Lucas. In the decade that followed, we all thought we would never see another ‘Star Wars‘ feature film again, since Lucas himself destroyed and ruined the prequel trilogy and continued to alter the original trilogy to dried up mess of movies that are almost unrecognizable. Fortunately for every ‘Star Wars‘ fan in the world, he sold his production company that included the rights to ‘Star Wars‘ to Disney for a modest amount of $4 billion.

And the 2016 Golden Globe Nominees Are….

by Bryan Kluger on Dec 10th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

53fe9c57-1190-4d61-b197-fcda11fc89af

The awards show is January 10 on NBC hosted by Ricky Gervais. First off, let’s look at something AWESOME here. ‘MAD MAX: FURY ROAD‘ is nominated for BEST PICTURE. It needs to win. It should win. And if does win, we all go streaking. That being said…I can’t believe that ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl‘ was not nominated for anything. Come on. It’s one of the BEST films of the year. It’s also interesting to see no love for the final season of ‘Mad Men’ her either. Oh well.

Here is the list of nominees:

Film Review: ‘Ex Machina’!

by Bryan Kluger on Apr 17th, 2015

Fernando M., Here…

ex-machina-movie

 It’s very rare that we get to say that a directorial debut is nothing short of a rousing success. Ex Machina is one of the finest films I have seen in YEARS!  Written and directed by veteran screenwriter Alex Garland, the brilliant writing mind behind 28 Days Later, Sunshine, and the Dredd reboot; he has outdone himself in every way by taking the director’s chair on his new film.

Film Review: ‘A Most Violent Year’!

by Bryan Kluger on Jan 21st, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

amvy_day6-219.CR2

By the title alone, you’d think this was in fact ‘A Most Violent Year‘ or a very violent movie. However, that is not exactly the case here. In fact, it’s far from it. J.C. Chandor’s screenplay and film is a very slow burn that tells a story of the seedy underbelly of competing heating oil suppliers in 1981 New York City. The reason for the film’s title is that 1981 was considered New York City’s most violent year on record.

Fernando’s Film Review: ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’!!

by Bryan Kluger on Dec 20th, 2013

Fernando M., Here…

inside_llewyn_davis

The Coen brothers return to give their homage to starving musicians and the art of folk songs.  Seen through the eyes of folk musician Llewyn Davis, the film captures a week long span, and perhaps the most eventful weeklong span, of one man’s continued attempt to make it.

Film Review: ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’!!

by Bryan Kluger on Dec 17th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

inside-llewyn-davis-oscar-isaac

 The Coen Bros. have knocked it out of the park yet again with their latest film ‘Inside Llewyn Davis‘. Although, I don’t think this will have the big box office draw that ‘O Brother Where Art Thou?‘ or ‘No Country For Old Men‘ had, but I expect people to be talking about this film for months to come and singing the impressive soundtrack, which was produced by T Bone Burnett. In the scale of things, this is a very small film set in the New York folk music scene in the early 60s. In true Coen Bros. fashion, the mood is darkly funny, and follows a man, who tries to find himself later in life through his music. I can’t recommend this film enough.

Here are the nominees for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards. Wow, there were a lot of snubs here. And how did ‘Rush‘ make the list for Best Picture? No way! And what about ‘The Way Way Back‘, ‘Mud‘, or ‘Short Term 12‘ not being nominated? For shame. Let me know what you think of this nominee list?

Suzanne Reviews ‘Won’t Back Down’!!!

by Bryan Kluger on Sep 28th, 2012

Suzanne Here….

Educational reform is a difficult enough subject for policymakers to tackle. Nothing is black and white, no one is completely to blame or completely self-interested, and there are a tremendous number of problems and an infinite number of solutions. So in approaching a movie about the plight of public education today, it would be nice to see the subject treated with the nuance appropriate to actually reform the system. Unfortunately, Won’t Back Down misses this nuance and focuses on creating a good vs. evil environment with two sides that don’t work together to find a solution. Fine, it’s a movie – except this is a subject that requires some thought, and so should this movie.
