Any film critic worth his or her salt will tell you that January is a pretty rough month for new releases. It’s a month marked by high-profile films from the previous year expanding around the country as they aim to get awards attention. Rare is the January release that rises above the status of being forgettable. But rare too is the sequel that improves upon its predecessor, and yet, here we are with the North American release of the utterly delightful Paddington 2. Bringing together many of the key players from the delightful 2015 original, Paddington 2 doubles down on the previous film’s many charms, introduces a cheeky new villain, and is thoroughly giddy fun.

The Shape of Water - 2018 BAFTA Nominations

After the Golden Globes were handed out last weekend, it’s time for the more significant, meaningful awards to take the spotlight. Today we have the 2018 BAFTA nominations, the equivalent of the Academy Awards for our friends in the United Kingdom.

The Shape of Water led the pack by racking up 12 nominations, including being one of five nominees for Best Film. Joining Guillermo del Toro‘s masterpiece were also Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and The Darkest Hour, both landing nine nominations each. However, not all the awards favorites were shown love with Steven Spielberg’s The Post left out in the wind with zero nominations.

See the full list of 2018 BAFTA nominations below. Read More »

In a week that has felt like an endless surge of bad news and gloom, the Paddington 2 trailer feels like a ray of light in a dark tunnel.

The sequel to the utterly charming 2014 film, Paddington 2 follows the marmalade-loving talking bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) as he sets off on a mission to buy an antique pop-up book for his aunt’s 100th birthday. However, he is soon threatened by a disgruntled actor (Hugh Grant), who uses his skills as a master of disguise to frame Paddington for a crime he didn’t commit. Don’t worry, while this sounds dire, the Paddington 2 trailer is still chock full of joy and charm.
