Oscar Nominations 2021 — Thoughts, Snubs, & Predictions
After an unprecedented year for film, the 93rd Academy Awards are around the corner. Everything from the year 2020 (which wasn’t that much) to the first two months of 2021 were eligible for consideration, and the Oscar nominees are finally out.
If You're a Fan of Fight Club, Give The Boys a Shot
1999’s Fight Club is the epitome of a dark comedy. It gave us an apparently ordinary world where nothing was what it seemed, the hero of the story was fully obscured and it demonstrated the power that can be wielded by the average person. Fight Club is unapologetic, violent, gritty, twisted, and catches you off guard with its wholly obscene humour (the bag of fat, anyone?)
Movies That Could Help You Get Through Your Hangovers
It’s a Saturday afternoon. You have rummaged through the vodka bottles in your apartment the night before. The drinking games, shot glasses, and beer cans are stacked in the center of the living room. There’s enough evidence to suggest that the residents of this home have a hangover. In the case of hangovers, you’re looking for comfort, low-lit rooms, resolution from your headache, and your aching body wants to lie around for days on end. So what’s the best friend to a hungover twenty-something year old? That’s right; movies!
‘WandaVision’ Series Review — A Risk That Pays Off
After an entire year without a new installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Phase Four kicks off with a brand new miniseries on Disney+. WandaVision is a superhero sitcom starring Elisabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany as Wanda Maximoff and Vision, two superheroes living a suburban life in Westview, when something sinister begins to unfold.
1900th century high
Ever since I was a little girl, I have admired dramas, entangled love stories, and embellished dresses. And yes, I'm a romantic all the way. If like me, you can't get enough of Pride and Prejudice, you adore British accents, daring plot twists, and history, you have come to the right place.
The Snyder Cut is Coming
Prepare Yourself for...Something We are less than a month away from The Snyder Cut of Justice League's release on HBO Max. As we speak, there is probably another story getting prepared for release with more teaser photos or spoilers, as that's the way it's been weekly for the last few months. There has been so much hype, time, and effort spent on this movie that it will be the worst misstep since Batman V Superman, no wait, Harley Quinn, or maybe the plot of Wonder Woman 1984, or it will be the greatest superhero movie ever and seemingly one of the greatest films in recent times. While I’m not sure that it’s going to impress many on any level, it no doubt does have its significance.
Black Superman: I'm Supposed to be Excited....But I'm Not
It was officially announced that WB will be rebooting Superman yet again. This time with J.J. Abrams in the producer chair and acclaimed writer Ta-Nehisi Coates helming the story. As a Black male comic-book fan, huge Superman nerd, fan of all of Coates's work especially his run on Black Panther, this should be the holy grail.
Could Cruella Remind Us Why We Love Disney Villains?
If you were to ask the average person what they remember about Disney’s 1961 animated film 101 Dalmatians, they will ALWAYS, without exception, bring up its iconic baddie Cruella De Vil. With her distinctive black and white hair, gigantic fur coat and obsession with turning the titular animals into a new item of clothing, Cruella De Vil is one of the quintessential Disney villains. Cruella’s popularity is now being exploited by the forthcoming 101 Dalmatians prequel Cruella, which reveals the backstory of the notorious villain. Set in 1970s London, Cruella explores how Estella De Vil became the deranged clothing mogul who has terrified so many of us over the decades. The project was first announced in 2011, and has gone through several directors and screenwriters, with I, Tonya director Craig Gillespie overseeing the finished film. Cruella is being released in May, and the promotional campaign has begun in earnest with the first posters and trailer, released last week.
Movie Review: 'Cherry'
Tom Holland is an actor I like a great deal. He has an earnest face and boyish charm that make him a near perfect fit for Peter Parker and Spider-Man. He’s proven as part of a series of Marvel Movies that he can hang with big stars and take the lead himself and all while maintaining an air of approach-ability. These qualities, unfortunately, don’t translate into more gritty or dark roles. The evidence for that is the new Apple Original movie Cherry, a failing attempt at translating Holland’s charm into something grimy and dramatic.
Pay Attention, 007
'No Time To Die' will not only mark the end of Daniel Craig's blockbusting run as 007, it will also be the 25th installment in the globe-trotting adventures of the world's favorite (not so) secret agent.
Representation in Romantic Movies – From Modern Classics to Hidden Gems
Valentine’s day may have passed, but the love hasn’t. The romance genre (especially rom-coms) has for a long time been targeted towards white, straight, women, and has thus been, in the mainstream, focused on white, straight, love stories.
The 10 Lowest-Rated Golden-Era The Simpsons Episodes (according to IMDb)
Between the years 1991 and 1997 (and a couple of years on either side), The Simpsons was the best television show. For 143 episodes from 'Stark Raving Dad' to 'The Secret War of Lisa Simpson', The Simpsons experienced its 'golden age', hitting a proverbial home run every week. Every episode produced during this era could be on someone's all-time top 10 episodes list. However, not all The Simpsons' golden era' episodes were created equal. To find out the 'weakest' episodes form this run, I have turned to IMDb user reviews to provide an 'objective' view. This list will present the ten 'classic' Simpsons episodes that have received the lowest IMDb score. This top ten list will not include the three clip shows produced during this period, as they would easily take the top three spots. All the episodes featured on this list feature 100% original content. Let's do it to it!
