Never had I allowed a documentary to move me as much as I have in the Mr. Rogers bio-doc, Won’t You Be My Neighbor. Although, one could argue that I had no choice in the matter. Continue reading
Another late Top Ten list, but I wanted to watch as many potential #ConTENders as possible before I made my final tally. Then, I found myself with more work in television than ever before. And yet, I STILL missed some big films. But, we will get into that soon enough. Catch up with my Top 15 of 2015, and my Top Ten of 2016 if you’d like.

Can Martin McDonagh do no wrong? Or maybe the better question is can Frances McDormand do no wrong? I went into Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri knowing practically nothing. I knew that Frances McDormand had been getting a lot of Oscar buzz, that this film was directed by Martin McDonagh, and that three billboards may be involved (hey, to be fair many indie films don’t necessarily evoke their titles).
And I wasn’t let down. What I know now after coming out of the film is that Frances will most certainly win her category at this year’s Oscars, Sam Rockwell will win for Best Supporting Actor, and a two-hour film can transcend its runtime and stay in your mind for days.
During one of my many days working as a Production Assistant on American Horror Story, another PA asked everyone an informal poll question: What’s most important to you?

Thousands of people come here every year in hopes of attaining happiness and The Disaster Artist, is about Tommy Wiseau’s version of that: The American Dream.

YES. Yes, it can. Logan is amazing.
I’ve been the biggest X-Men fan since I watched the 90s cartoon show and then first got my grubby little mitts on a special issue of What If? Specifically, issue #9 (Volume 2).
And Logan plays out like a movie version of “What If?” Logan is loosely tied to the rest of the series and is drastic in theme and tone. The film is best summed up as a post-apocalyptic western with mutants.
It’s finally here (and he didn’t even see them all)! Brandon unveils his picks for the Top Ten movies of 2016.
What did he pick? He really put that film that high?! Do you agree? Find out below!
