Summing Up The 92nd Academy Awards

The 92nd Academy Awards came to close and had plenty of obvious notes, self-aggrandizing speeches, some surprises, but it was largely hostless. I gave my predictions on the Oscars on who would win for Best Animated Film Feature, Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Director, and Best Picture on StudioJake. I am man enough to admit…

StudioJake 107- Hollywood Award Fallout

TheBlaze’s Hilary Kennedy joins me to talk about the fallout from the Oscars and where Hollywood will go from here. Also, was ‘Green Book‘ really the best picture of the year? Kennedy points out that it is a ‘feel good’ that gave audiences a break. We discuss this and Spike Lee’s reaction to losing the…

My Reaction To The Best Picture Nominees

The Academy Awards released their 2019 Oscars nominations for Best Picture. Some of them seem odd, but none of them are shocking and only confirmed what moviegoers thought of the film industry to begin with.

Movie Review- The Disaster Artist

The Disaster Artist directed and produced by James Franco is an adaption of Greg Sestero and Tom Bissell’s non-fiction book of the same name. It tells the story of the making of Tommy Wiseau’s 2003 movie The Room. I was forced to sit through a screening of Wiseau’s masterpiece. It lives up to its reputation as…

#FilmFriday – My Favorite Films Of 2017

Movies are a tricky thing. You have viewers who have to look at a film from fifty different layers and try to examine the underlining philosophy of it. Me, I just want to know if it is entertaining or not. After that, I’ll look over the “deeper meaning” or whatever. That being said, this year,…

Why Do Bad Movies Win Awards?

I am a fan of movies. I will see all kinds of films: drama, science fiction, thriller, action, and whatever else. The only genre I will not watch because I do not enjoy is horror. That being said, I am also a contrarian movie reviewer. I give good movie reviews to films like Furious 7 and…

Movie Review- Steve Jobs

Danny Boyle brings us a cerebral look with Steve Jobs through three computer releases, two from Apple and one from NeXT. It differs from Jobs, starring Ashton Kutcher which was more of a biographical film.  I think Aaron Sorkin is a political hack, but he is a good writer and this script proved it. Normally, I…

Movie Review Flashback- The Fugitive (1993)

Directed by Andrew Davis was given the helm of The Fugitive starring Harrison Ford, the remake of the 1960s television show of the same name. I have not seen a single episode of the original series, so I have no way of comparing it. The film, however, was nominated for seven Academy Awards, but won…

Movie Review Flashback- The Bodyguard

One of the greatest films to come out of 1992 (or just the 90s in general), The Bodyguard is a thriller directed by Mick Jackson and starring an all-star cast of characters.   Rachel Marron (late Whitney Houston) is a music superstar who has just appeared in an Academy Award nominated film, with her receiving the nomination…
