minari clips

Technically, Minari is a 2020 movie – which is why we had it on our list of the Best Films of 2020. But the rollout of the movie has been a little weird, and it didn’t reach On Demand until today. But now that it’s available for all to see, I can’t recommend Minari enough. It’s a quiet-but-powerful movie that pulls you into its story of a Korean immigrant family trying to make the American dream a reality. Several clips from the film have found their way online to coincide with the On Demand release, and you can (and should) check them out below.

If you’ve been dying to see Minari, here’s a great way to do it safely.

Film distribution company A24 has launched the A24 Screening Room, a website where film fans can access virtual screenings of their new movies.

Get details about the new A24 virtual screenings below.

In one of the most hellish years in recent memory, escaping to the movies became rather difficult, at least if you wanted to see them in theaters.

All of my Top 10 Films of 2020 were watched from the comfort of my home, but I wish I could have admired them from a cushy seat in front of a silver screen in order to absorb them even more completely.  Read More »

Amidst all the chaos and confusion, wonderful movies arrived and – if they were lucky – found their audience. With the year now in the rearview, here are my top 10 movies of 2020, and here’s to 2021 – dear god, let it be better for everyone.

Golden Globes Block Minari

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has made a controversial decision about which categories A24’s new family drama Minari will be allowed to compete in for the 2021 Golden Globes. Though studios are allowed to choose which categories that their films are submitted for, the 89 journalists from around the world are the ones who choose whether or not to accept them. Unfortunately, they’ve decided that since Minari is primarily in Korean, it will not be allowed to compete in either of the regular Best Picture categories and will only be accepted in the Best Foreign Language Film category.
