Aisle Seat 1-13: A New Year's Celebration
Posted By: Andy Dursin 1/12/2015 - 9:00 PM
Mark Rydell’s 1981 filming of the Ernest Thompson play ON GOLDEN POND (***, 109 mins., PG) kicks off Shout Factory’s 2015 slate of releases, with its New England summer setting functioning as a perfect antidote to the cold, icy winter that’s settled in across the nation.

Oscar Predictions and Other End of 2014 Lists
Posted By: Scott Bettencourt 12/31/2014 - 9:00 PM
Predictions are in boldface, followed by those which I personally would nominate in italics. As with previous years' lists, for several categories I have NOT provided my own nominations, since frankly I know jack about costumes, sound and so forth. Films that I have listed as my own personal nominations yet which are not actually eligible in those categories are marked with an asterisk.


BEST PICTURE

(This year, there will be anywhere from five to ten Best Picture nominees, so I will rank them in order of likeliness -- my guess is that there will be nine, because that’s how many there were the last three years. Which means, of course, there will probably be eight or ten.)

1. BOYHOOD
2. THE IMITATION GAME 
3. SELMA 
4. BIRDMAN OR (THE UNEXPECTED VIRTUE OF IGNORANCE)
5. WILD
6. FOXCATCHER
7. THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL
8. INTO THE WOODS
9. GONE GIRL
10. UNBROKEN

1. IDA
2. BOYHOOD
3. MR. TURNER
4. UNDER THE SKIN
5. WHIPLASH
6. STARRED UP*
7. CALVARY
8. BIRDMAN OR (THE UNEXPECTED VIRTUE OF IGNORANCE)
9. SELMA
10. SNOWPIERCER
