Award season spans over several months, with film festivals, the Golden Globes, the guild awards and other ceremonies taking place. All of it leads to one night, Oscar Sunday.
On Feb. 24, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will honor the best that the film industry had to offer last year, whether they be from Hollywood or indie corners. Of all the categories the Academy hands out gold trophies for, though, there is one that stands above the rest.

Over the course of a thrilling (?) 13-3 victory in the Super Bowl by the New England Patriots over the Los Angeles Rams, movie studios took time during the commercial breaks to push upcoming features. In between action on the field, previews for several films were broadcast over the airwaves.

If one follows my twitter, they will soon learn that along with my appreciation for film, I also really enjoy sports, especially college football. I usually try to catch all the college football games and that definitely goes for the “bowl season,” a series of post-season competitions played by teams across the country who didn’t make the playoff.

It’s the final day for the month of spook, Halloween has finally arrived.
As previously stated in the past few pieces I’ve written, I’m looking back at some of my favorite horror movies from the past 10 years, as I’ve been reviewing for about a decade. Here are the picks from 2015-2017.

Since I’ve been reviewing movies for a decade, I decided this year to take a look back at some of my favorite horror movies since 2008. So far, I’ve already taken a look at movies through 2012, so here’s the next few through 2014.

Here’s part two of my retrospective on horror movies from the past 10 years. I started reviewing films back in 2008, and since Halloween is close, I figured I’d take a look back at some of the best in horror.
These are the scary pictures that stood out in 2010, 2011 and 2012. For my look back at 2008-2009, click here.

I’ve been reviewing films for more than a decade now and during that time, I’ve seen plenty of films in the horror genre.
I can admit that not all of them have been particularly good. In fact, some have ended up on my top 10 worst of the year lists. However, some have stood out, and seeing that it is the month of spook and Halloween, I figured I could revisit some of the good flicks I’ve watched and make some recommendations.

The big “one-oh.”
I turned 30-years-old in May and started reviewing movies in September 2008. That’s a third of my life, and over that time I’ve reviewed more than 600 movies, some more memorable than others.
It’s been a journey that has involved changing websites. I actually wrote my first reviews on MySpace (yes, seriously), and after that site screwing up and losing an entire review I wrote, I decided to make a new web-page. My reviews were first hosted on the site Webs.com.

Summer 2018 is coming to a close and there were some really good flicks that came out in the past several months. However, these movies might not get recognition during award season.
Now, that could always change with the Academy’s supposed Popular Film category that’s right around the corner. But still, I like giving my own form of awards to the movies of summer.

Twenty years ago, following the release of the American adaptation of “Godzilla,” few probably would have guessed that we’d be seeing a film like “King of the Monsters” coming out someday.
