    Kim Novak Upset About Use Of 'Vertigo' Score In 'The Artist,' Dramatically Calling It "Rape"

    Well, we guess not everyone is going to love "The Artist," the black-and-white Oscar contender that has been rapturously received, but this is a little ridiculous. There is a sequence when "The Artist" borrows some of Bernard Herrmann's immortal "Vertigo" score. Bac...

    My Favorite Films Of 2011: Kevin Jagernauth

    The annual top ten list is pretty much an exercise in futility to some degree. With a race to cram in as many movies as possible as the clock on the year winds down (and let it be said, I didn't get to see everything I would have wanted to) combined with the added duty of then ranking them, it&#...

    Best Films of 2011

    If there were ever a year to be wimpy and declare a tie, this would have been it: choosing between my Number 1 and Number 2 films was just silly. One is big, the other smaller; both are ambitious and perfectly made, but in wildly different ways. I adore them both.

    Golden Globe Nominations Announced: 'The Artist' Leads, 'The Ides Of March' Surprises, 'Extremely Loud' Snubbed

    We've only just recovered from yesterday's SAG award nominations, where "The Artist" continued to lock down its frontrunner status, and "The Help" picked up a strong haul of nods, while the likes of "Shame" and "Hugo" were shut out completely (among th...

    'The Help' & 'The Artist' Lead The Field At Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations

    In the seventeen years that they've been running for, the annual Screen Actors' Guild Awards have proven to be a pretty reliable precursor for the acting categories at the Academy Awards. And why shouldn't they? With the actors who nominate their peers for the Oscars overwhelmingly being...

    Awards Mania As 'The Artist,' 'The Tree Of Life' & 'The Descendants' Earn Top Critic Organization Honors

    Sunday was a major day for Oscar prognosticators, as a number of critics organizations went live with their end-of-2011 honors. Some films gained support, and some lost quite a bit of steam, but for those of you who look at the whole thing like a horse race, there was a lot of movement amongst a thi...
