For Your Consideration 2013: Rush

“Rush” is one of those feature films that has so many things going for it, like an Academy Award winning director in Ron Howard (“A Beautiful Mind”) and a top-notch cast in Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Brühl, but has the chance of not being noticed at this year’s Oscars. I could see this year playing out one of two ways. Either “Rush” upsets and … Read More For Your Consideration 2013: Rush

For Your Consideration 2013: Lone Survivor

It’s not every year you have a Peter Berg film in the For Your Consideration bracket for the Academy Award, but this year, “Lone Survivor” barely makes the cut, coming out in December.

For Your Consideration 2013: Fast & Furious 6

For Your Consideration 2013: Oblivion

With last year’s Academy Award winner for Best Cinematography Claudio Miranda (“Life Of Pi”), impeccable futuristic-wasteland visual effects, and an original score from the band M83, “Oblivion” has to be on the Academy’s radar.

One Minute Review: Funny People (2009)

For Your Consideration 2011: “Bridesmaids”

As much as I admire the women that made “Bridesmaids” possible, a Judd Apatow produced comedy has little to no possibility of being nominated for an Academy Award. The fact that it is being considered is grounds enough impressive, but a comedy at the Oscars is very rare.  I can maybe justify the screenplay gaining a nomination simply because it was very well written, … Read More For Your Consideration 2011: “Bridesmaids”
