Destroy All Monsters: Because Leo Didn't Win An Oscar For TITANIC, Leo Won't Win An Oscar

I want to get a message out to Leonardo DiCaprio, mostly because I don't want him to kill himself. His self-annihilation track, in his relentless pursuit of an Academy Award, is starting to scare me. Apparently for The Revenant he...

Review: THE REVENANT, An Admirable, Handsome Failure

It begins, as you might expect, with a sweeping shot that's equal parts glorious and gratuitous. For The Revenant isn't just some run-of-the-mill flick, this is Oscar-winning director Alejandro G. Iñárritu's latest flick, a follow up for his much-lauded Birdman....

SPOTLIGHT Is Best Movie Of 2015, According To Dallas-Fort Worth Critics

The Dallas/Fort Worth Film Critics Association has selected Spotlight as the best movie of 2015. Performances by Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant), Brie Larson (Room), Paul Dano (Love and Mercy), and Rooney Mara (Carol) were named as best in their respective...

THE REVENANT: DiCaprio Vs. Bears, Hypothermia, Gravity, Premature Burial And Tom Hardy In New Trailer

There is no shortage of snow-caked, visceral imagery on display in the second trailer for Alejandro González Iñárritu's survival Western, The Revenant. This trailer offers a lot more Tom Hardy, who plays the villain of the piece, and a fair bit...

THE REVENANT: First Trailer For Iñárritu's Next Looks Stunning

Alejandro González Iñárritu follows up his Oscar winning Birdman with what looks to be his most ambitious film to date, the epic survival tale, The Revenant. Based partially on the novel by Michael Punke, the film follows Leonardo DiCaprio as...

DiCaprio And De Niro Clash In Trailer For Scorsese's THE AUDITION

Martin Scorsese finally unites his favourite leading men - Robert De Niro (collaborator on 8 films) and Leonardo DiCaprio (collaborator on 5 films) - in his upcoming short film The Audition. It should be pointed out that this is no...

So, Scorsese, De Niro, DiCaprio And Pitt Make A Movie Together, But...

As the story goes, Martin Scorsese got together with Robert De Niro, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Brad Pitt and made a movie written by The Wolf of Wall Street scribe Terrence Winter. No. Really. They did. Brad Pitt left his working...

Destroy All Monsters: Thinking Better Of The Wolves

I still don't know exactly where to come down on The Wolf of Wall Street. In the first part I don't think it's a particularly great movie, though of course being a Martin Scorsese picture, it's a hell of a...

Why THE WOLF OF WALL STREET Is A Horror Movie

Note: Major spoilers abound. Martin Scorsese is a master of horror, whether he realizes it or not. Of course, if one simply adds up the piles of dead bodies from his violent gangster films like Goodfellas, Casino, Gangs of New...

Review: THE WOLF OF WALL STREET Roars

Tapping into a primal force that is mercifully unbound by decorum or good taste, Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio tear up New York's financial district in their latest collaboration. The Wolf of Wall Street finds both director and actor baying...

Destroy All Monsters: Leo DiCaprio and the Myth of the Chick Flick

I have a running argument about whether or not movie box office is a zero-sum game. I tend to attack film earning potential from the "mother of two" perspective - which is that while yes, it's nice to believe that...

Review: THE GREAT GATSBY Is a Class Assignment You'll Want to Skip

Baz Luhrmann's half-frenetic, half-subdued version of The Great Gatsby is almost 100 percent faithful to the novel in terms of plot, and almost zero percent faithful in terms of theme, character, and impact. I don't doubt that Luhrmann and his...

Well-Timed GREAT GATSBY Extended TV Spot Joins Promo Avalanche

While most here at Twitch appear to be hungrily anticipating Pacific Rim, I have the same fervour for Baz Luhrmann's take on The Great Gatsby, and am eating up every morsel of promo in the lead up to its May...

Baz Luhrmann's THE GREAT GATSBY To Open The 2013 Cannes Film Festival

With the exception of his bawdy, brash musical Moulin Rouge, I'm a Baz Lurhmann tragic. Strictly Ballroom is one of my favourite movies and even Australia has a certain charm, if you let it wear you down to its level....

Baz Luhrmann Presents Leo As a Different Kind of GREAT GATSBY in New Trailer

The newly-released second trailer for Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby makes wildly apparent that Leonardo DiCaprio will be a very different kind of Jay Gatsby in the upcoming 3D extravaganza. And that could be a very good thing indeed. The...

Quentin Tarantino Talks Race And Violence In DJANGO UNCHAINED

Quentin Tarantino is, to put it mildly, a talkative fellow. So when presented with the opportunity to join in on a four person round table interview with him to discuss the upcoming Django Unchained I knew that I - and...

Jamie Foxx And Leonardo DiCaprio Face Off In New DJANGO UNCHAINED Clip

While I agree very much with Eric Snider's assessment of Django Unchained as 'lesser Tarantino' - I place it above on Death Proof on my own personal rankings - I also agree with his further assertion that it is a...
