It’s January, which means it’s preview time up here at B+ Movie Blog.
I don’t really peruse other places, but if I were to guess, I would say I’m the only person that goes this deep on their preview coverage for a year. I go month to month based on what’s scheduled to come out, preview like 200 extra movies that you probably have never even heard about as of now, and then bring back all the stuff from last year and previous years that I’ve been tracking that hasn’t come out yet. I’m not the kind of person who just goes, “Oh my god, Avengers! Wrinkle in Time! (Insert other movies the studios are paying us to talk up to fit the narrative to get us more clicks)!” If you ever see a slideshow from me, then you know I’ve given up.
The reason I do this is purely for me, though I imagine anyone stumbling on this will get something out of it to. What I try to do is preview everything so I’m aware of it when it comes out, and, to make it interesting for myself, try to guess what I’m gonna think of it when I do see it. That way, I can see what films surprised me or disappointed me from every angle (before, during and after).
Today we’re going over the films that don’t yet have release dates. (more…)
The Eddie Awards were given out last night. Here are the winners:
Comedy/Musical: I, Tonya
Dunkirk makes sense. War movies do well in this category. See: Hacksaw Ridge last year. Gonna be tough to beat that one in the end. I, Tonya, also nominated for Editing, also makes sense as a winner. Baby Driver fares better if not for Dunkirk. The only movie that can jump up and win is Shape of Water, which I don’t think needs Editing or will win Editing. I think Dunkirk ends up taking it pretty easily.
Otherwise — Coco, we know is already locked for Animated. And Jane wasn’t nominated for Documentary. How’s that one looking now?
We’re breaking down categories in like a week, but this one seemed self-explanatory from the start.
