REVIEW: ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

It’s been fifteen years since the last “Star Wars” movie and, let’s face it, more like thirty-two since the last really good one, but “The Force Awakens” more than makes up for lost time. The JJ Abrams-directed film is a “Star Wars” movie through and through, with all the adventure, fun, good vs. evil archetypes, adorable droids and characters to relaunch the franchise successfully for an all new generation. Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill are all back, mostly for the nostalgia factor for longtime fans, but it’s reallyRead More

John Boyega’s Finn takes center stage in a new 30 second spot previewing “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” The new footage shows off Finn’s journey from storm trooper to hero, which include stops at partnering up with Harrison Ford’s Han Solo, escaping certain danger alongside Daisy Ridley’s Rey and of course, wielding a lightsaber – one that looks suspiciously like the one Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) used in the original trilogy. The new “Star Wars” still remains mostly mysterious, but all will be revealed on December 18, 2015.Read More

The first awards of the Oscar season has kicked things off today with the 24th annual Gotham Independent Film Awards announcing its nominees today. With the focus on US-based independent films (even more so than the aptly named Independent Spirit Awards), the nominees are unsurprisingly filled with some of our favorite up and comers and breakout stars of the year.
