New Blu-ray Releases Creed II

Last month, Samsung announced they would no longer produce Blu-ray players. It gave physical media fans – like me, and presumably you, if you’re reading this column – pause. The reasoning could be because Samsung’s 4K technology has been subpar in compared to others. Or it could spell the beginning of the end – a sign that Blu-ray will soon go the way of VHS. It’s not a pleasant thought. For now, Blu-ray is here, and I can only hope it’s here to stay. For now, let’s treasure it while it’s still around. And what better way to do that than by reading a few thousand words I’ve cobbled together on the latest new releases? These are the new Blu-ray releases and their special features you should check out this week and beyond.

2019 Oscars Winners

The 91st Academy Awards aired live on ABC last night, and the ceremony went surprisingly smoothly without a host to lead the way. In fact, this might be the best way to do the Oscars from now on.

But you didn’t come here for chatter about the ceremony itself. You just want to know the 2019 Oscars winners, and those who came away with a trophy certainly made for some surprising moments, for better or worse. Green Book walked away with Best Picture, even though director Alfonso Cuarón won Best Director for his work on the Netflix movie Roma. But how the rest of the awards fall? Find out below.

2019 Oscars Honest Trailer

This weekend brings the 91st Academy Awards to ABC, and it’s probably going to be a complete disaster. Not only is there no host for the ceremony, but The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences pissed everyone off by cutting a few awards from the live broadcast (only to reinstate them in the show). On top of that, they’ve had a real problem figuring out how the nominees for Best Original Song were going to be performed during the ceremony too.

But the Oscars are really about rewarding the greatest achievements in film from the previous year. And if we’re going to do that properly, than we need to look at each and everyone of this year’s Best Picture nominees with a new perspective. That’s where the 2019 Oscars Honest Trailer comes into play, skewering each of the eight film nominated for Hollywood’s top prize. Which one will walk away with the trophy only to get lambasted online afterwards? Read More »

Last night, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) announced their winners.

Best Director also went to Alfonso Cuarón, who won Best Cinematography too. But the British-made film The Favourite actually came away with more awards. Find out more about the 2019 BAFTA winners below. Read More »

Overnight, our friends across the pond announced the 2019 BAFTA nominations, the equivalent of the Academy Awards in the United Kingdom honoring the preceding year in film.
