Will ‘The Revenant’ bring DiCaprio Oscar gold?

As far as I’m concerned, Leonardo DiCaprio should already have several Oscars on his shelf. ‘The Revenant’ could very well be the film that finally scores him some Oscar gold, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s his best film. Brutal and beautiful, this film has racked up lots of nominations from professional and critics groups already—and it deserves the accolades, but will this be the one that finally secures a DiCaprio win on Oscar night?

Struggles of ‘Suffragette’ still relevant today

Suffragette is an important historical British period piece based on the struggles of the women’s movement in Britain during the mid-1800’s. Their struggle is real, but many of the characters are fictional. This doesn’t lessen the value of this film and it’s ongoing significance in the world we live in today.

‘Amy’ a haunting cautionary tale

I wish a documentary like Amy was shocking because we didn’t see talented people self-destruct on the regular, but sadly, Amy Winehouse’s story is all too commonplace. Unlike your average Behind the Music rock doc, Amy doesn’t flower things up for a made-for-TV package. Instead, it shows us the stark reality of such a talented person’s demise, and leaves us reflecting on why so many of our most talented entertainers meet a similar fate.
