Stream the Not-So-Jazzy Great Gatsby Soundtrack

Stream the Not-So-Jazzy Great Gatsby Soundtrack
As with Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge, and… well, just about every other picture he’s directed, Baz Luhrman has decided to go in a unique direction with his adaptation of The Great Gatsby. While the film remains in its traditional 1920s era setting, Luhrman’s adaptation makes use of an eclectic R&B soundtrack, produced by Jay-Z and featuring artists ranging from Beyonce and... 

Argo and the Other 2013 Oscar Winners

Argo and the Other 2013 Oscar Winners
Despite the best predictions, the 85th Annual Academy Awards wound up being filled with a bit more tension than most people would have expected. The first upset came early in the evening as Best Animated Picture went a different way than a lot of people expected, and some surprises just kept coming. I know my Twitter feed was filled with fellow web critics commenting on how quickly some of their predictions... 

Rafe’s 2013 Oscar Night Predictions

Rafe's 2013 Oscar Night Predictions
I probably should have put up my actual Oscar predictions a week ago, but let’s be honest: nobody is using what I say to place any bets in office betting pools. There are certainly a lot better qualified people to use as a basis for gambling, say Nate Silver, for example (whose predictions I still haven’t looked at beyond bookmarking the page). Hell, I still haven’t even seen all... 

Thomas’ Obligatory Best Films of 2012 List

Thomas' Obligatory Best Films of 2012 List
Oh early spring film releases. The Oscar films have gone wide, the crappy horror/comedy/romantic movies are getting ready to do well for an opening weekend before exiting quickly and the critical community is organizing their obligatory top ten lists. Now, given that this is my first top ten list on an actual site, I figured that I had to go all out in terms of stockpiling on film consumption for the... 

Thomas’ Obligatory Worst Films of 2012 List

Thomas' Obligatory Worst Films of 2012 List
I really loved 2012 as an overall year for film. There were so many groundbreaking films in various genres, whether they were the biggest of blockbusters or the smallest of independent productions. Yet, they can’t all be gems. Every year has its stinkers and, while there were a limited amount of them, the ones that really stung hurt like hell. Might as well try to heal the wounds by going down my... 

Trailer Park: The Sapphires, Lords of Salem, Upstream Color, Room 237, Game of Thrones Season 3

It’s time for a visit to the trailer park. This week we look at a few trailers that have been out for a month or so (but ones we haven’t talked about before), several independent pictures that might be worth keeping an eye on, and even a television teaser. So, without further ado, let’s get right to the trailers. We’ll start this week with a trailer that is hardly new. In fact,... 

Identity Thief Steals Box Office From Zombies and Drugs [Box Office Results]

Identity Thief Steals Box Office From Zombies and Drugs [Box Office Results]
Part of looking at movies does involve the business side of show business. We try to have a little fun with it, as each week Tim makes his predictions as to how movies will perform at the Box Office. Then, on Sundays, we look at how Tim’s predictions fared. It’s been a while since we’ve focused on the box office side of things. Tim himself admitted he was a bit rusty as he made his predictions. Considering... 

In Theaters: Identity Thief, Side Effects

In Theaters: Identity Thief, Side Effects
Since I’m trying to jump-start life back into the site, I figured a good thing to do was to bring back some of the regular content. It doesn’t get more regular than taking a look at what’s hitting theaters each week and telling you which movie has the best chance of getting our box office dollar. Add in Tim’s Box Office predictions, and you’ve got a nice weekly summary... 

Trailer Park: Super Bowl 2013 Edition

Trailer Park: Super Bowl 2013 Edition
I’ve been trying to get this rebooted column kicked off for a while now and this year’s football extravaganza has finally given me the motivation to do so. So welcome to the new trailer park, where we gather the latest trailers and commercials to hit the web and give you our opinions on how interested we are in the movies they promote – in other words, how well the trailers do their...
