Oscar’s Most-Nominated: Best Supporting Actor

The 91st Academy Awards are coming up toward the end of the month, and this year there are a few nominees in the acting categories who are receiving the latest of their many Oscar nominations. So to lead up to the ceremony this year, I wanted to look back at all the actors and actresses…

Films in 2019: January

The first month of 2019 is officially in the books! As I usually do during the first month of the year, I caught up with several movies from the previous years, especially those in awards contention. But I also squeezed in some older films in between, including spending last Saturday in San Francisco for my…

Films in 2018 Review

It’s been a few days since the new year started, but before diving into 2019, I wanted to wrap up what I watched in 2018. I’m not listing all the new-to-me movies I watched this past year (you can look at that on my Letterboxd here, or look through my monthly entries), but I’ll be…

Films in 2018: December

Happy New Year! Before we begin a new year of film discoveries, I need to recap the last month of 2018, which was mostly spent catching up with new releases. My viewing numbers went down to my more normal amount compared to November, when I was watching as many movies as I could on FilmStruck…

Films in 2018: November

With FilmStruck shutting down at the end of November, I spent most of the month watching as many of the movies in my watchlist as possible. I couldn’t get to every movie, but I did manage to watch a good chunk! I posted some of my thoughts on the streaming service shutting down a couple…

Farewell, FilmStruck

Today is a sad day for cinephiles, as the streaming service FilmStruck officially shuts down after two years. It was a true treasure trove of films, highlighting little-known and hard-to-find movies alongside more popular titles. What made this service so special was the curated themes that really let users explore and discover instead of letting…

Films in 2018: October

Got back to my usual movie-watching habits in October, and even ended up watching at least one movie from each decade (from the 1920s onwards; I need to get better at watching silent movies!). I also took 13 trips to the theater this month, though most of those were to re-watch some old favorites, a…

Films in 2018: September

September was another busy month, so much so that I only got around to watching a little more than a dozen movies! That included re-watches of the previous versions of A Star Is Born ahead of the new one that comes out this week (can’t wait to see it!) so I may write up a…

Films in 2018: August

As I mentioned last month, August was set to be a busy month for me. Some personal news: I moved to Sacramento a few days ago! After working in Huntsville, Alabama for two years as a news producer for the ABC-affiliate station, I’m moving on to start work at the NBC-affiliate station here on Monday!…

Films in 2018: July

I ended up not seeing as many new-to-me movies as I normally like to in July, but overall I saw more than 30 movies. Much of that due to re-watching all 10 movies Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers did together for in preparation for a post I wrote about a week ago on my favorite…
