A Star Is Born

Bradley Cooper's directorial debut is getting plenty of Oscar buzz!

Marvel's Black Panther

Will the Academy honor another average but diverse film this year?

Isle of Dogs

Could this be the year Wes Anderson takes home a screenwriting Oscar?

Welcome to Marwen

Steve Carell has been nominated before, and this one looks like it's begging for Academy attention.

Beautiful Boy

Carell's talent paired with that of Timothée Chalamet plus drug addition could equal lots of Academy love.

Review: Bohemian Rhapsody

Review: Bohemian Rhapsody
Bohemian Rhapsody hits the screen with immense energy and passion, but in the end, I still don't feel like I know anything more about off-stage Freddie Mercury than I did before I watched the film. Final Grade A-

Review: Isle of Dogs

Review: Isle of Dogs
If the screenwriting award were for writing a script filled with surprising, unconventional narrative elements, Anderson would definitely deserve it. But taken as a whole, the story he wrote does not live up to its potential.

Review: Call Me By Your Name

Review: Call Me By Your Name
I don’t think Call Me By Your Name is a worthy contender for Best Picture. Chalamet’s performance is truly inspired, though, and his nomination is 100% deserved.

Review: Baby Driver

Review: Baby Driver
Baby Driver is stylish. It’s surprising. It’s engaging. It's funny. It's suspenseful. It's romantic.

Review: Logan Lucky

Review: Logan Lucky
Logan Lucky has no diversity going for it, so it will be evaluated solely based upon its merits. In other words, it is unlikely to earn any nominations.

Review: Thor Ragnarok

Review: Thor Ragnarok
If you’re looking for an incredibly fun, easy to watch, hilarious superhero movie with plenty of super hot actors being super while looking hot, rush to the cinema posthaste.

Review: IT

Review: IT
Regardless of the Academy’s opinion IT is definitely one of the best films to come out so far this year, and I am sure it will be in my top 5.

Review: Get Out

Review: Get Out
Jordan Peele and his cast and crew did some solid work here, but Get Out is not an Oscar-worthy film. It’s a pretty good film. It could have been much better, and I honestly wish it had been. But if it ends up being an Oscar contender, it will be solely because of the Academy’s new commitment to diversity.
