    Retrospective: The Films Of Martin Scorsese

    As a director Martin Scorsese ranks at the forefront of the all-time top tier of American filmmakers, but even as a presence in the film world in general he is pre-eminent. It is merely the just desserts of a life which, more than any we can think of, has been entirely dedicated, saturated and invig...

    Grammys: 'The Muppets,' 'The Artist,' 'The Dark Knight Rises,' 'Dragon Tattoo' & More Nominated For Soundtrack & Score

    We haven't paid attention to the Grammys in years, mostly because it's irrelevant, these days we're barely familiar with half the nominees, and the show is usually pure tedium. (Don't even get us started on that Beach Boys tribute thing last year.) But for movie buffs looking to main...

    Watch: Dazzling 2-Minute Behind The Scenes Steadicam Shot From ‘Hugo’

    Although Martin Scorsese’s ode to the wonders of cinema, “Hugo,” was seen as something of a financial failure, there’s no denying the absolute artistry on display in every frame. Scorsese took the medium of 3D and surpassed every other film in its use, while also using the fo...

    'The Artist' Tops The 84th Annual Academy Awards Winning Best Picture, Director, Actor & More

    While it was supposed to be the evening of the French-made silent film "The Artist" -- and don't worry, eventually it was -- the narrative of the 84th Annual Academy Awards was certainly, for at least two-thirds of the show, all about Martin Scorsese's "Hugo." Both nostalgic, celebratory love letter...

    OSCARS DEATH RACE: HUGO

    Hugo Cabret (Asa Butterfield) lives in a fairy tale, in both senses of that word. He's not troubled with real-life adolescent bagatelles like homework, and he lives unsupervised in the clock tower of a Parisian train station, where he's in charge of keeping the clocks running.

    It's Oscar nomination morning! You know, like Christmas morning, if you spent most of the rest of Christmas Day bitching that you didn't like your presents.
