What just happened? For years we’ve mocked the Golden Globes as a joke, a drunken farce that leads into the last few weeks of Awards Season before the Oscars. The show is basically one last hootenanny, like New Years Eve for celebrities, before the Important Awards sweep in to codify all that is good and worthwhile from the previous calendar year. (Note: no awards actually codify anything.)
But something happened in 2015. The Golden Globes, especially when it came to awards for TV, did not appear to be decided entirely by self-congratulatory voters more interested in getting loaded with celebrities than in the actual films and shows. The film winners were almost entirely independents, and the TV winners were diverse both in who they represent, and the ways in which those stories are getting to audiences. A big win for Amazon’s Transparent isn’t just unexpected; it is a great step forward.
Now, instead of bringing attention to stuff like The Tourist, the Golden Globes suddenly look almost progressive. The problem is that some of the 2015 awards winners are still things audiences haven’t seen, for a variety of reasons. So here’s a guide to some of the lesser-known achievements the Globes highlighted this year. Read More »

Star Wars #1 might be one of the most anticipated comic book issues in years, as it should be. The series is important for a lot of obvious reasons, as Marvel takes back the publishing rights to the series that Dark Horse has had for many years. But will fans enjoy the first 48 pages of this new Star Wars adventure? Marvel sent me an early digital copy of their upcoming Star Wars comic book series. Read my review of the Star Wars 1 comic after the jump.
Here is why the new Star Wars comic book series matters.

There’s no month quite like January on the movie release calendar. It’s the worst. January is a month to catch up on the awards contenders released in the weeks prior and for studios to drop all their wide releases they have no idea what to do with. The reasoning is simple. There are no major vacations for one. And two, if a movie is really good, the studio would’ve either released it earlier over the holidays, or will hold it until the summer.
Basically, if a movie comes out in January, most of the time you know it’s going to stink. Over the past few years, however, the early calendar-dump months have been getting slightly more competitive. In the near future, we’re going to start getting legitimate blockbusters in March. But that’s a new practice. For the past several decades, January has been a horrible month to release movies.
With that knowledge, we decided to go back through history. Were there any really good movies released in January? The answer is “Yes,” but it’s not as many as you’d think. In fact, in the past 35 years, I found only about 30 films most people would consider “good.” We’ll mention them all below, then dive a bit deeper on the better ones. Below, read about the 15 best January movie releases of the past 35 years. Read More »

Last month Chris posted his top 10 trailers of 2014, but I also wanted to weigh in with my favorite trailers of the past year. You might be surprised at which trailers did and didn’t make the cut. For instance, one of the trailers below is for a movie which has yet to begin principal photography. And no, the top trailer on my list is not the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer. Find out the best movie trailers of 2014, ranked by me, after the jump.
