2018 Oscar Predictions Are Framed By An Incredibly Close Best Picture...

This has been one of the most dramatic awards season in recent memory. Think about that for a moment. Just two years ago the Academy received a social media slap in the face as #OscarsSoWhite pushed the organization to make dramatic changes to its membership.

2018 Best Visual Effects Oscars Predictions

This is a very competitive race with no locks and only “likely” nominees.  We expect both “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and “War for the Planet of the Apes” to make the cut as the previous two installments of each franchise were nominated. The question is how many prestige or artistic players will fill out […]

Oktay Ege Kozak’s Top 10 Films Of 2017

As far as our sociopolitical environment is concerned, 2017 has been a dumpster fire inside a locked building full of orphans. But as we have witnessed with the tumultuous period of the 1970s, such times usually result in daring, transgressive, and sometimes even revolutionary artistic work.

The Best Action Sequences Of 2017

Cinema is, quite literally, action, and while some of the snootier critics might look down on the action movie, there are few purer cinematic pleasures than looking at a great set-piece sequence, from “The General” to “Mad Max: Fury Road.” Technology might have made jaw-dropping spectacle easier than ever to pull off, but a summer […]

The Best Scores & Soundtracks Of 2017

Even before filmmakers were even able to record and sync sound, movies and music have been tied together. Back then, music was played on a piano or an organ. Now, some of the world’s greatest composers write scores that can stand as works of art separate to the films they accompany, while often doing so […]

The Best Films Of 2017

As we drag ourselves, bloodied and limping across the finish line of 2017, there’s little to celebrate at year’s end in the world outside the movie theater, except for Fyre Festival which is still the greatest and funniest thing ever.

‘It’ Floats To Top Spot, ‘mother!’ Flops [Box Office]

There were two kinds of horror to choose from at the box office the weekend — an adaptation of Stephen King‘s most popular works, and a heady journey into Darren Aronofsky‘s psyche —  and audiences made it clear which they preferred. Coming off a fantastic opening weekend, “It” continued to hold strong, gathering another staggering […]

The Best Movies Of Summer 2017

We’re right on top of things calendar-wise, right?… A little late to the party, but, it’s become a recurrent trend every summer for journalists to look back at the movies that were released and, well, complain. The gist of some articles would be “don’t you remember the days when they used to release great movies […]

In the eerie opening scene of Matt Reeves’ wonderful new film “War for the Planet of the Apes,” a pack of human soldiers hides …

‘War For The Planet Of The Apes’ Roars Into Top Spot...

Franchises are supposed to get bigger with each installment, not smaller, so 20th Century Fox will likely be wondering what happened with “War For The Planet Of The Apes.” Despite being one of the best reviewed blockbusters of the summer, getting moviegoers to show up proved to be a challenge. ‘War’ swung into cinemas where […]
