90th Annual Academy Award Predictions

Mon, 05 Mar 2018 00:12:00 +0000

Keep in mind that we have picked our “Will Win,” the expected winner in our eyes, “Should Win,” the most deserved entry and our “Dark Horse,” the movie with an outside chance of pulling off an upset.

Outlook to the Academy Awards: Best Actor in a Leading Role

Tue, 27 Feb 2018 22:29:58 +0000

This week we’ll preview some of the races for the 90th Annual Academy Awards which will air on Sunday, March 4th on ABC. The Nominees for Best Actor in a Leading Role: Timothée Chalamet, “Call Me by Your Name” Daniel Day-Lewis, “Phantom Thread” Daniel Kaluuya, “Get Out” Gary Oldman, “Darkest Hour” Denzel Washington, “Roman J. Israel, Esq.   The truth is that while the hype machine turns, many of the races during the Academy Awards are relatively easy to predict. Still, every year there are several compelling races. This year one of those compelling categories is for Best Lead Actor. Last year Casey Affleck took home the nights top acting prize for the gentleman and Denzel Washington and Daniel Day-Lewis have been nominated and won the award before, respectively. This comes down to three actors for three very different reasons. I don’t believe Washington or Timothée Chalamet can hold up in [...] Related posts:

It’s Been Far Too Long

Tue, 27 Feb 2018 22:07:25 +0000

Good evening old friends. It’s been far too long. It’s been a very busy few years for me but I am planning to return! Without promising more than I know I can provide, I’m going to start off with weekly posts, hopefully graduating to bi-weekly and so on. Hope you’re all still hanging around and I’m looking forward to sharing new music, movies and television picks with you in the next year. Related posts:The 2009 Academy Awards We Challenge You!!

Record Store Finds: Tapestry by Carole King

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 13:45:52 +0000

Record Store Finds is a weekly column that shines light on a record from years gone by. Some are all time greats and others are under the radar classics that deserve a second spin. Carole King’s Tapestry doesn’t need much of an introduction. It’s the best selling album by one of America’s all time great songwriting legends. Originally released in 1971, the album peaked at #1 in several countries including the United States and has been certified 10x platinum indicating over 10 million copies sold (in the United States). It is with good reason. Tapestry is a musical journey inside the mind of a songwriting genius. Ironically, she wasn’t keen on the idea of buy steroisa online singing her own songs. Aretha Franklin recorded “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Women” years earlier but James Taylor, one of her main collaborators insisted that she sing her own songs. The [...] Related posts:

La La Land Is Saving My Soul

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 20:30:35 +0000

Open on a Los Angeles highway. Cars parked. People looking rather annoyed. Just at the right moment cue the first of two dozen songs intermixed into this two hour movie. It’s clear to me that musicals aren’t for everyone. People go to the movies to be blown away with action sequences or riddled with fear. The problem is that these genres have fallen into creative lulls. While good action movies still exist, they are becoming less frequent by the moment (see any list of sequels coming out in 2017). What La La Land and its director Damien Chazelle have reminded us, is that good movies do exist if you’re willing to take risks and put yourself out there. It’s easy to say that musicals are inherently ‘out there’ in nature. That you can’t do action movies the way you do a musical and this is undoubtedly true. But it’s the [...] Related posts:

88th Annual Academy Awards Winners

Sun, 28 Feb 2016 14:28:02 +0000

The 88th Annual Academy Awards are upon us and I thought I would take a moment to recognize how truly awesome the Oscars are. With only 24 awards given out all night, it is among the toughest awards for a performer to add to his or her mantle. Guys like Alejandro G. Iñárritu are trying to add a 2nd in the same number of years, something that hasn’t been done since the ’50s. Others, like 87 year old Ennio Morricone and 41 year old Leonardo DiCaprio, are just trying to win their first! Both of those are likely to happen by the way. Here are my picks for the 88th Academy Awards: (Please note, I’ve been using this system for almost a decade now. Will Win is who I believe will win. Should Win is my personal pick. Dark Horse is someone that you should pay attention to and can’t [...] Related posts:

Harris' Top 5 2016 Grammy Performances

Wed, 17 Feb 2016 22:08:06 +0000

In recent years, the Grammy Awards have become more about the performances than the awards themselves. With nearly 100 Grammy’s given out, it’s sometimes hard to decipher the winners and it seems as if by the nights end, every person in attendance is leaving with their own award. The performances however are truly what help the Grammy’s stay relevant. Who else could have brought together Eminem and Elton John? Or paid tribute to Bob Marley by brining together Sting, Ziggy Marley, Bruno Mars and Rihanna? The one and only answer is, the Grammy’s. Here’s our list of the top 5 performances from last nights 58th Annual Grammy Awards 1. Lady Gaga Remembers David Bowie – It wasn’t sad. It wasn’t even somber. Instead, throwing the book out the window, Lady Gaga dressed up in David Bowie attire and hit the stage with a bang. She raced through some of her [...] Related posts:

Review: Spotlight Takes The Cake In Mediocre Movie Season

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 19:17:50 +0000

​I live roughly three miles from three local movie theaters. The one still showing Spotlight is the oldest and smallest Among them. My drive home lasts all of ten minutes and it wasn’t until I was about one minute from home that I realized I was griping my steering wheel furiously and there was no music playing through the stereo in my car. I had driven home in silence, digesting what I had just seen. Making newspaper journalism riveting is not an easy task. I often sit and ponder what Michael Bay would do if he were handed a script like Spotlight? Would he even read it? There are no explosions, no sudden slips of fate and definitely no high speed chases. Instead, Spotlight is a cinematic masterpiece crafted by talented actors and superb writing. Spotlight tells the troubling story of the Archdiocese’s cover up of sexual abuse in the [...] Related posts:

Opinion: Will Smith Wasn’t Nominated Because (Gasp) He Didn’t Deserve It

Fri, 29 Jan 2016 17:25:58 +0000

Let me be the last person to bring this up this month. In the wake of Jada Pinkett Smith’s comments about her husband not being nominated for Best Actor at the 2016 Academy Awards, people went crazy regarding her boycott of the ceremony. I’d like to stand on a chair, as loud as I can, and scream that this issue isn’t actually an issue. I’ll be the first to say that if my wife, be her black, white, green or blue was snubbed for an Oscar nomination, I’d be pissed off. Sure I’d say nasty things and blame people who don’t deserve blame. That is exactly what happened here. Will Smith not being nominated for an Academy Award does not make Hollywood racist. If you were really trying hard to blame someone, I suppose you’d have to settle on the writers. Even then it’s a stretch. If there aren’t enough [...] Related posts:
