Oscars 2015 – My Picks

Hey kids! We’re back for the Oscars this year, and what a crazy year it is for the golden statue, right? All the talk of snubs and whatnot, it all seems like one of the years the Academy took the brown acid or something. You aren’t supposed to take the brown stuff! Didn’t you hear…

Kingsman The Secret Service

  There’s a lot of spitfire razzle-dazzle but barely any wit, panache or charm in Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman The Secret Service, a huge bloated misfire of a movie that sits like a spew stain on the impeccable jacket of Colin Firth’s body of work.

Black Sea Review

A submarine thriller in the midst of Oscar season? All the Academy contenders in the theater and you want me to think about seeing a little movie in the weirdly specific submarine niche? Um, ok. In fact, that’s kind of what drew me to it. It NOT an Oscar movie. And hey, it’s got Jude…
