    Oscars: Can Anyone Beat 'Gravity' Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki To The Prize?

    n the last three years, the race for the Cinematography Oscar has come down to a bout between two kinds of candidates: the oft-overlooked veteran who has somehow never won an Oscar, and the previously-lauded cinematographer who shot a visual effects-infused extravaganza. In all three years, the winn...

    Box Office: 'Bad Grandpa' Knocks Down 'Gravity,' '12 Years A Slave' Makes The Top Ten

    After three weeks, "Gravity" has been taken down a peg by none other than "Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa." Although it could read disheartening (Oscar-buzzed original sci-fi knocked down by lowbrow comedy third sequel), there's hope yet that we can still have nice things as a few limited release, in...

    Oscar Bitchfest: Knegt vs. Knott On 'Saving Mr. Banks,' Michael Fassbender and What Film Might Win Best Picture

    It's pretty much there in the title -- as most of us who follow the Oscars know, the awards aren't exactly a reliable barometer of quality. Taking them too seriously only leads to disappointment. And while ignoring them is obviously an alternative, and no doubt a healthy one, for those of us who can...

    As 'Gravity' and 'Captain Phillips' Hit and 'Fifth Estate' Bombs, Who's a Movie Star, Anyway? UPDATED

    Top Ten Box Office: 'Gravity' Force Squashes Newbies 'Fifth Estate,' 'Carrie,' and 'Escape Plan,' Young Audiences Are MIA

    Where did the young audience go? That is the compelling -- and scary -- question for studios as another October weekend falls flat, even with strong turnout from the older demographic. The top ten came in at only $94 million, down from $112 last year, as kids failed to turn out for Sony's disappoint...

    Box Office: 'Gravity' & 'Captain Phillips' Reign Over 'Carrie'

    In spite of being in its third weekend and with Halloween right around the corner, "Gravity" took the number one spot, with "Captain Phillips" following right behind, beating out a gang of newcomers: horror remake "Carrie," Schwarzenegger and Stallone actioner "Escape Plan," and the Julian Assange s...

    'Gravity' Strength Hides Weak Friday Box Office Results; '12 Years a Slave' Starts Well, 'Carrie,' 'All Is Lost' and 'Fifth Estate' Don't

    "Gravity" continued its impressive run with an easy $9 million #1 gross, down just under 30% from last Friday with a likely total yield of another $30 million for the weekend. But this significant number -- which would be a solid first weekend total for any October -- masks an overall continued weak...

    'Captain Phillips' Opens Well Against Mighty 'Gravity' at Number One

    Two well-reviewed, high-quality films -- "Gravity" and "Captain Phillips" -- lead the Top 10 this weekend with impressive numbers. The studios, building on such late 2012 successes as "Argo," "Lincoln" and "The Life of Pi," are continuing to push a small number of awards-targeted quality projects at...

    Alfonso Cuarón Says Studio Wanted More Flashbacks & Scenes From Mission Control In 'Gravity'

    While Warner Bros. does indeed deserve credit for bravely sticking with "Gravity" over a complicated four year development/production process, particularly for a film in a genre that isn't known for being the most consistent performer at the box office, that's not to say they didn't initially have c...

    TIFF: My Own Private Toronto Film Festival

    Late as usual. People are attending MIPCOM in Cannes and in November AFM in Santa Monica, and I’m only now getting around to writing about my own private Toronto. I chose films I would not be able to see soon in a theater near me and I chose films because my schedule permitted me to see them. Occasi...
