These are the Southern California film locations from Best Picture nominees and winners

If they gave out Oscars for best use of Southern California locations, we know who the big winner would be at this year’s Academy Awards. Because even if you haven’t seen “Once Upon a Time … In Hollywood,” writer-director Quentin Tarantino’s ode to the film industry’s company town circa 1969, you probably know it’s a non-stop travelogue through the town of the title and surrounding environs. But it’s not the only locally shot film with a nomination: There are three up for a best picture Academy ...

What We Learned About ‘Ford v Ferrari’ While Attending the 24 Hours at Daytona Race

Full disclosure: I know nothing about motor sports. I didn’t even know motor sports were called motor sports (it was just car racing in my head) before attending the 24 Hours of Daytona race this weekend. Granted, I knew a little bit about the event going in, but that’s only because I saw Ford v Ferrari , the 2019 Oscar-nominated Best Picture film that, among other things, has Christian Bale (playing historical driver Ken Miles) driving the race in 1966 while Matt Damon (playing car desig...

‘Spotlight’ Director Tom McCarthy on Switching Gears With Disney Plus Kids Movie

Most directors wouldn’t follow up a best picture Oscar victory with a children’s movie produced by and distributed on a new streaming service.

Why Imitation Is at the Heart of Being Human

Chimpanzees, human beings’ closest animal relatives, share up to 98 percent of our genes. Their human-like hands and facial expressions can send uncanny shivers of self-recognition down the backs of zoo patrons. Yet people and chimpanzees lead very different lives. Fewer than 300,000 wild chimpanzees live in a few forested corners of Africa today, while humans have colonized every corner of the globe, from the Arctic tundra to the Kalahari Desert. At more than 7 billion, humans’ population dwar...

Ben Pearson’s Top 10 Movies of 2019

After a rough start, 2019 ended up being a terrific year for film. Several movies which didn’t make my personal list – films like Marriage Story, Toy Story 4, The Last Black Man in San Francisco, Us, Apollo 11, One Cut of the Dead, Uncut Gems, etc. – could easily constitute a separate lineup teeming with its own memorable moments. But, as the saying goes, though there are many [lists] like it, this one is mine. Here are my favorite films of last year. Ben Pearson’s Top 10 Movies of 2019 ...

ComingSoon’s 10 Best Movies of the Decade

ComingSoon’s 10 Best Movies of the Decade The 2010s were a decade of mindblowing films that took us through turbulent times with style and substance.

Decade in review: Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing

15 Years Ago, ‘The Aviator’ Transformed Leonardo DiCaprio’s Career – and Forever Changed Our Perception of Him as an Actor

If we are indeed at the tail end of the era of movie stars, it’s worth considering the career of one of the medium’s brightest lights. Leonardo DiCaprio is one of a few actors who can still open a movie at the box office simply by being its star, and one of a similar few actors who’s yet to be involved in a major franchise of any kind. Over the last quarter-century, he’s navigated the pitfalls of movie stardom at every turn. One of the most important transitions in DiCaprio’s career came 15 ye...

‘Glory’ at 30: Denzel Washington’s 1989 Breakout Film is Still the Best Civil War Movie Ever Made

Within the war movie genre, the American Civil War hasn’t beget as many classics as World War II or Vietnam. One indisputable classic, however, is Glory, the powerful 1989 film based on a true story about one of the first all-black volunteer regiments in the Union Army. Denzel Washington won his first Oscar for this movie.
