Oscar Winners

Hollywood’s biggest night is done for another year. Here’s a list of those the Academy chose to award. It’s all about The Artist.

The Oscar Nominations Are Here

The nominations are out for the 84th Academy Awards, and it’s a pretty sentimental affair with The Artist, The Help, The Descendants, and War Horse leading the way.

What Movie Should I Watch This Weekend?

This weekend brings us a comedy about cancer (50/50), pretty people in a spooky house (Dream House), an ode to Japanese puppet theater (Bunraku) and a tale about dealing with the coming apocalypse (Take Shelter).

The Debt

Jumping between 1966 and 1997, the story follows three Mossad agents, now retired, on their secret mission to track down a Nazi war criminal.

Coriolanus

This might be a big deal: an updated telling of a bloody Shakespeare play, its got a major cast (Gerard Butler, Brian Cox, Ralph Finnes, Vanessa Redgrave), and it’s Finnes directorial debut.

Take Shelter

This one looks good: Haunted by a series of apocalyptic visions, a young husband and father questions whether to shelter his family from a coming storm, or from himself.

The Tree of Life

A period piece about a family with three brothers, the children of Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain. The eldest son is played by Sean Penn (as an adult – it would be really bizarre otherwise.)
