Scrambling to catch up on all things Oscars? The big categories are easy: Mad Max should win but won’t. Leo shouldn’t win but will. The little people will be played off and someone will be just insufferable. We’ve been over all that time and again. What doesn’t get as much love are the smaller categories—your documentaries, shorts, and […]

Scorsese’s ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ Delayed Until 2014?

“More, is never enough.” This statement may find itself not necessarily true for Martin Scorsese’s highly anticipated new film, The Wolf of Wall Street, for it is being reported that Scorsese has handed in a cut of the film that is nearly three hours long, with the big bad studio executives wishing for it to […]

Dallas Buyers Club

First Trailer for ‘Dallas Buyers Club’

Early Oscar predictions are already beginning to surface, and one of the frontrunners in many lists is perhaps the unlikeliest person imaginable.
