Film In General

Best Picture Odyssey: "Nebraska"

Well, we’ve reached the end of the series. I kinda wish I had something more bombastic to close with, but this isn’t exactly a great list of nominees. 934 more words

Film Reviews

Best Picture Odyssey: "Captain Phillips"

This is going to be a much shorter review than the other ones in this series, for a couple reasons. First, and probably most importantly, I haven’t seen this movie in a very long while. 703 more words

Film Reviews

Best Picture Odyssey: "Philomena"

Ugh, do I have to?

That sounds like a negative judgment, but it’s not. In fact, I think this is a pretty good movie, all things considered. 1,170 more words

Film Reviews

Best Picture Odyssey: "Her"

Are we too invested in our technology?

I’ve always brushed that question off as the standard generational denigration that’s existed for as long as the concept of change. 2,754 more words

Film Reviews

Best Picture Odyssey: "American Hustle"

When I was a little kid, I didn’t understand how keys worked. All I knew was that mommy or daddy stuck a key into the doorknob, jiggled it a little, and the door magically became openable. 1,477 more words

Film Reviews

Best Picture Odyssey: "Dallas Buyers Club"

Well, this isn’t a great way to kick off the series. I wish I could begin with a more positive review, but I have a lot of things to say about this film so I might as well get them out now. 1,935 more words
