Oranges and Sunshine

Oranges and Sunshine

| October 19, 2011

Oranges and Sunshine depicts the true story of British social worker, Margaret Humphreys (Emily Watson), who by chance uncovered the scandalous covert deportation of over 100,000 children that took place over 2 decades from the United Kingdom to Australia by boat. Many parents were told their children had been adopted and on to a better […]

Watchmen

Watchmen

| March 9, 2009

I came to the film Watchmen by what is perhaps a slightly different trajectory than either the die-hard fanboys or the uninitiated filmgoer. I did not read Watchmen when it first came out, since I considered it to be just a “comic book”. Real literature had words and didn’t need pictures, and that’s what I […]

What’s Hot at the Moves This Week 2/5/09

| February 6, 2009

Slumdog Millionaire finally fell off the top five after having been there for the last few and having risen there very slowly. This is a movie that was released before Thanksgiving, after all. It speaks of the power of the film as well as the power of the Academy Awards and how nominations affect the […]

What’s Hot at the Movies This Week 1/29/09

| January 30, 2009

I have to give Clint Eastwood credit for making a movie that is still doing well at the box office. Now if only the Academy would have noticed that as well. The Academy did notice Slumdog Millionaire to the tune of ten nominations, including Best Motion Picture of the Year. I think it is that […]

What’s Hot at the Movies This Week 1/22/09

I guess we were ready for some new offerings at the box office last week. Only one movie in the top five was in theaters before last weekend. The movies that have been sitting up there quite comfortably for weeks are now relegated to the positions of sixth through twelfth place, including Marley & Me. […]

What’s Hot at the Movies This Week 1/8/09

| January 8, 2009

The top five movies at the box office this week all seem to have one thing in common. They each have a major star guiding it and pulling it along right to the front of the line. People are just going to naturally clamor to see Jennifer Aniston, Adam Sandler, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, and […]

The top five list from the past few weeks is still resmbling the list we’ve had for the past couple of weeks, minus 007 and plus a classic. This week we’ll have father taking on son as Will and Jaden Smith will battle it out in The Day the Earth Stood Still and Seven Pounds. […]

What’s Hot at the Movies This Week 12/11/08

| December 11, 2008

The top five movies at the box office are the same ones that were in the top five last week. In fact, the first three spots are the same, with the films in the fourth and fifth spots simply switching places. This isn’t necessarily fault with the films that made their debut last week however. […]
