The Oscars are approaching fast. There were some great films that came out in 2017 (including Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 & Call Me By Your Name) and this is one of those years where it is extremely difficult to pick a clear winner for several categories. Below are all of my Oscar Predictions. Read more
If you’re reading this, then you’ve probably read enough opening paragraphs for “Best Movies of 2017” lists explaining how great a year it was for cinema, and yes, all those articles/lists/whatever are correct. In a year filled with tribulation around the globe, going to the cinema not only felt like the perfect escape, but 2017 was also just a great year in general for movies. From blockbusters to indie standouts, we laughed, we cried, we cheered, and we were wowed from January to December. Creating this list was difficult because, honestly, there was something I saw each month that would have made my top 10 list for any other year; that itself speaks to just how good a year it was for going to the cinema. But another year has come and gone, and it’s time to look back and remember the best of the best that Hollywood gave us in 2017.
2017 has been a great year for movies overall. As the year closes, numerous films have made their case for major Oscar contention. The best part about this year is that there is no clear front-runner for Best Picture or Best Director, and that makes the race very exciting. My top 10 list changed a lot over the year, which usually isn’t the case. There has simply been a lot of great movies released consistently since February. Below is a list of my favorite films from 2017.

With 2017 already half way over, I thought it would be a good time to have a working list of my top ten films of 2017 (so far). With August just starting, I have seen most of the films on my watch list. There have been some stellar films that have already cemented themselves in my top favorite films of all time. There have also been some major duds. I wasn’t a huge fan of some of the years most critically acclaimed films, and some movies that were panned negatively I absolutely adored. So without further ado, here is my list: Read more
Christopher Nolan has established himself as one of the best filmmakers in the industry today. His ability to tell a story in a unique way and his confident directing makes his films a spectacle to behold. With Dunkirk hitting theaters this weekend, I thought it would be a good time to rank his filmography. Read more
Christopher Nolan has worked his way up to not only one of the greatest filmmakers of our time, but also one of the greatest filmmakers of all time. His nonlinear storytelling combined with consistent use of practical effects give his films a very unique look and feel. With Dunkirk, I was extremely anxious and slightly nervous because the early reviews were saying that it was Nolan’s best film and his masterpiece. I kept thinking, there is no way he can top Inception or Interstellar right? Well I’m here to tell you guys, he very well might have. Dunkirk is a beautiful film that tells a story from three different perspectives with very little dialogue and exposition. With virtually no blood or cursing, it’s definitely the most unique war movie I’ve ever seen. Read more
Let’s be honest – 2016 was the most underwhelming year at the movies in recent memory. While there was a fair of number great and entertaining movies, the wait between seeing memorable ones felt longer than usual. And while, as the trades have reported, it was another record-breaking year at the box office, inflation diminished the return of some of the biggest movies of 2016.
Thankfully, 2016 is out of the way and 2017 has arrived and studios are doubling down on tentpole movies. It’s exciting to consider what 2017 has to offer, as many movies scheduled for release throughout the year look very promising. As such, it was difficult to pick five movies I’m most looking forward to in 2017.
On Wednesday, Warner Brothers dropped the official trailer for Dunkirk, director Christopher Nolan’s next movie. While it showed plenty of drama and action sequences around the historic evacuation, it didn’t necessarily give anything away (not shocking considering it’s coming from Nolan, who is all about teases). Personally, I think the trailer is great, but I’ve talked to more than a handful of people who came away unimpressed with the first full trailer.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and writer/director Christopher Nolan comes the true story war film Dunkirk. Starring Fionn Whitehead, Jack Lowden, Aneurin Barnard, Harry Styles, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, James D’Arcy and Tom Hardy. The film which was shot with IMAX cameras will open theatrically on July 21, 2017. Read more
