Once again we have an Oscar season embroiled in controversy; progress is slow in Hollywood. I am interested to see how Chris Rock approaches this, I believe it will be fun to watch. This could be the year where Leo wins his first Oscar. It seems like the Best Actor category is stacked in his […]
Overall we did pretty well on our predictions this year.
Here are the things we got right:
* Grand Budapest Hotel Art & Production Departments – lived on stage (easy ones really)
* Innaritu wins Best Director (many had Linklater here)
* Moore wins Actress (easy)
* Arquette wins Supporting Actress […]
“Guardians of the Galaxy OBLITERATES August Record” – that headline is accurate – the huge opening of Guardians and the no doubt huge box office that will follow both domestically and around the world – has proven a big bet by Marvel has paid off. With the meteoric, and surprising success of […]

When those PWC guys walk up to the podium, with those award winners at the Kodak Theater – you know you are putting the previous year in the books. 2013 was a good year in movies – box office was big again and there were some really solid films.
The Movieraiders had […]
I saw Iron Man 3 this summer– and I enjoyed it. It is very clear that Robert Downey Jr. (RDJ) is Tony Stark. He owns that character and that persona in a way that I don’t think anyone will be able to top. It would be stupid of me to say that there will […]
One of the most trumped up events of our time was Y2K, we literally thought that banks would fail and that pandemonium would ensue. No one could have predicted that the banks would be fine and that it would be Adam Sandler who ended up messed up by the millennium. This post is […]
