Oscars 2018 – Predictions

by Kevin Muller

Most people get excited for the beginning of the year due to the proximity of the Superbowl to the New Year.  For me, I also get the Academy Awards, which is the Superbowl for film fans.  Though the Patriots, and Brady, losing to a team who never won and that no one believed in, was maybe the greatest narratives of the year.  Let’s see who is nominated in each of these major categories, along with my personal picks, and who I think will take an Oscar home.

Review – Phantom Thread (2017)

by Kevin Muller

“…When I was a boy, I used to hide things in the linings of the garments.  Things I only knew that were there…..secrets.”

Reynolds Woodcock utters that line to his lover Alma. It is a simple one that both describes his secretive way of life and the tone of this film.

Those qualities are just what is on the surface of Paul Thomas Anderson’s incredible new film that reunites him with his There Will Be Blood actor, Daniel Day-Lewis, who has said this will be his curtain call from the cinematic world.

Review – Lady Bird (2017)

by Old King Clancy

As divisive and overused Rotten Tomatoes has become in the recent year, it’s hard to ignore Lady Bird beating the record for most positive reviews to remain at 100% (164 positives beating Toy Story 3’s previous record of 163).

With that level of acclaim is worth taking note of, so I figured I’d give it a shot and see what it had to offer. And while not the best film of the year, it can definitely stand out as one of 2017’s strongest offerings with career highlights from Greta Gerwig and Saoirse Ronan.
