Parasite (2019)

Something really awesome happened last night. For the first time in its 92 year history, a foreign language film won Best Picture at the Academy Awards. When you consider just how many incredible international films have graced the big screen since the 1920s, this is an amazing achievement, and along with statuettes for Best Original…

The 92nd Annual Academy Awards: Head vs. Heart

That’s right, it’s that time of the year again! The time when my BFF and I sit underneath 46 blankets infant of my TV from 1am to 5am to see who takes home the most coveted prizes in the movie business. Oscar night complete with too much food is a long standing tradition in my…

A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood (2019)

From 1969’s Oliver! to the many iterations of Great Expectations to The Muppet Christmas Carol, the iconic author’s works have proven to be solid foundations for some of the most memorable movies…

Waves (2019)

In the run up to awards season, one name that I expected to see mentioned a lot more than it has been was Waves. Yet another interesting A24 project, the film had been on my radar for months, and by all accounts my expectations were high thanks to the reputation of the distributor and the…
