Exploring Michael Haneke: Cache

In my writings about 71 Fragments of a Chronology of Chance, I made mention of the notion that Micheal Haneke cares a great deal about his audience, an idea I would like to further explore while thinking about his 2005 film, Cache.

Industry critics say the force is strong in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi'

We are a mere hours away until the public at-large can feast their eyes on Star Wars Episode VIII! — Press screenings are in the books, the embargo has lifted, and good news awaits series die-hards, casuals, and first-timers anxious to get a peek at first reactions to Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

'Olaf's Frozen Adventure' Will Air on ABC

'Olaf's Frozen Adventure' Will Air on ABC

After being cut as the opening act for Disney-Pixar's Coco. Olaf's Frozen Adventure will be on ABC as part of ABC's "25 Days of Christmas" lineup. — The 22 minute featurette was always intended to be a holiday special on ABC. Even on previous Frozen specials it was advertised as a holiday special. Before the release of Coco however Disney announced that the film wouldn't open with a creative Pixar short. Instead it would open with the featurette that was suppose to be a holiday special. We still don't know the backstory behind the Coco-Frozen issue. Many speculated that it was an attempt to make Coco more successful at the box office. Which I believed helped get more people to see Coco. Still the film is doing alright at the box office but not terrific.

'Phantom Thread' Review

Three-time Best Actor Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis has said “Phantom Thread” will be his final film. If that's true, this is quite a way to go out. His performance as '50s London fashion designer Reynolds Woodcock isn’t as monumental as his Abraham Lincoln portrayal in 2012's "Lincoln". But once again, Day-Lewis immerses himself completely into this role, presenting us with a rich and fascinating character.

'The Shape of Water' Review

“The Shape of Water” is director Guillermo del Toro’s latest visionary… — Well, I wanted to end that sentence with the word masterpiece. I can’t say I’m disappointed by this film. In fact, I genuinely enjoyed it. The acting is strong, the look is stunning, and the musical choices are smart. I just wasn’t blown out of the water.

'The Post' Review

It’s almost unfair. Hanks, Streep, Spielberg, Williams all together on the same film? Arguably, these four make-up the Mount Rushmore of modern cinema. Well, here’s the good news for fans and the bad news for every other movie competing this Awards Season: “The Post” is even better than the sum of its parts.
