What a complicated path this has been to this year’s Oscars. First, the Academy tried to shoehorn a category in ,“Popular Film,” that was quickly taken out after much outcry. Then, Kevin Hart was hired then fired after his anti-gay tweets surfaced. Finally, the Academy wanted to cut certain awards that always had their time to shine, but quickly walked back, and put them back in. We haven’t even gotten to the ceremony where some celebrities are going to be annoying with their political beliefs that no one asked to hear. Anyway, the Oscars have always been a second Superbowl to me, without the high ratings. I love movies, and even though I don’t always agree with the picks, Chicago winning best picture comes to mind, I always like to see what/who wins. Let’s get to it…
We reviewed Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born that is nominated for 7 Oscars! The 91st Academy Awards will air on Sunday, February 24th.

“A musician helps a young singer find fame, even as age and alcoholism send his own career into a downward spiral.”
by Old King Clancy
There’s a lot of value in a name, if I see a movie called Hobo With A Shotgun, I know that I’m probably in for something violent, something ridiculous, and something fun. Or if I see a movie called 2 Fast 2 Furious, I know it’s probably “Dude-Bro Dog-Shit.” So when I got the chance to watch a movie called The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot, I had all kinds of B-Movie ideas in my head about what it could be. To my surprise, the film is actually a reflective look on one man’s amazing life and the decidable un-amazing place he’s found himself in his old age. And I’m not sure how I feel about that, it’s not that the film wasn’t what I was expecting it to be, and the film itself didn’t know what it wanted to be.
THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT follows the epic adventures of an American legend that no one has ever heard of. Since WWII, Calvin Barr (Elliott) has lived with the secret that he was responsible for the assassination of Adolf Hitler. Now, decades later, the US government has called on him again for a new top-secret mission. Bigfoot has been living deep in the Canadian wilderness and is carrying a deadly plague that is now threatening to spread to the general population. Relying on the same skills that he honed during the war, Calvin must set out to save the free world yet again.

The word, remake, has become a dirty word in Hollywood. Whenever one is announced, people roll their eyes, and either totally ignore it or hand over their money in some type of curious shame. The new film, A Star is Born, is the third cinematic iteration of the popular story about a musician, in his decline, that finds both talent and hope in a young female aspiring singer. The pair this time are Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, who not only stars as the male lead, but directed, co-wrote, and produced this epic love story.
