The Oscar films are starting to hit the shelves. The past month has had plenty of great releases. Now is the time to be buying DVDs.
If you have a heart, ‘Flipped’ will entertain you. ‘Iâ€™m Still Here’ is worth a rent, but probably not more than that. Other than that, this weekâ€™s offerings are pretty weak.
For as much as I love the Golden Globes, I hate the Golden Globes. The notorious starf***ers of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association often overlook talent in favor of star power and fill their ceremony with “what’s hip” rather than “what’s great.” For this year’s ceremony they aim to increase their ratings by 10 percent, […]

Creating an annual top ten list is really a high pressure endeavor. Many of the films listed below I have only seen once and although they made a great initial impression on me, it’s hard to know if they have lasting power. Usually I re-assess my top ten list in June/July of the following year […]
Read of the Day: Elbert Ventura says that November 11 could be observed as American independent cinemas’ birthday, for it is the anniversary of the release of John Cassavetes’ Shadows. [Slate] News of the Day: It’s official – there will be 5 Best Animated Feature nominees this year. The Academy has revealed the 20 shortlisted […]
Once again a poorly reviewed, mindless action film has taken the top spot at the Box Office. G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra follows in the footsteps of Transformers 2 as a critic-proof blockbuster. Despite its 39% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and it’s unimpressive 6.2 rating on IMDb, the Army action flick brought in $56.2 […]
Despite less than positive reviews, all three new releases this weekend had strong openings at the Box Office. In a surprise that not many probably saw coming, the animated rodent comedy G-Force topped Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. G-Force joins Up as the second Disney movie of the summer to open at number one. […]
There aren’t any wide releases this week that are very exciting. Not only do they have low Rotten Tomatoes scores, but they just look uninteresting. There is one film that is releasing on the coasts that is worth checking out, but other than that it might be a good week to check out some indies […]
This is probably the best weekend for movies in a long time. This summer’s finest Indie film that I have seen so far, as well as one of the best blockbusters both get their release. Movie goers will have plenty to choose from this weekend. Here are the Film Misery picks of the week: 1) […]
Tom: “…I hardly think that I’m Sid Vicious.” Summer: “No, I’m Sid.” Tom: “So I’m…Nancy.” There is a new thing over at MSN’s Cinemash, where well-known film duos will be spoofing themselves and classic films or celebrities at the same time. The first edition features (500) Days of Summer stars Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt […]
Fox Searchlight has posted photos from the L.A. premiere of their film (500) Days of Summer. I can’t be the only one who thinks that Zooey Deschanel is fantastic. I haven’t seen a movie with her in it that I haven’t enjoyed. Or at least enjoyed her performance in it. I still remember thinking she […]
Grade: A- About once every summer an Indie film comes along that captures an audiences attention and gets out of its inner city art houses and expands with critical and commercial success. Past examples of this include movies like Once, Little Miss Sunshine, and Napoleon Dynamite. This summer, that movie will be Sundance sensation (500) […]
