2014 Oscars Favorites: A Year Of Adversity, Heroes, And Con Men
2013 was one of the best years in a long time for great films and great performances - they were so great in fact, it was hard to come up with our favorites.

But we did! Now these aren't John's picks, but another 'Jew' (Marilyn) has opinions that are as strong as my wonderful husband's.

Two Jews on Film Oscars 2014 Favorites: This is the year that reminded us of how cruel and ignorant we humans can be...

'12 Years a Slave,' 'Mandela,' '42' and 'Philomena,' all these films demonstrated the power of the human spirit to overcome adversity and in the end, to more than prevail.

In "Dallas Buyers Club," real-life cowboy Ron Woodroof's (Matthew McConaughey) free-wheeling life is upended in 1985 when he is diagnosed as HIV-positive and given 30 days to live.

Shunned by many of his old friends and bereft of government-approved effective medicines, Ron decided to take matters in his own hands, tracking down alternative treatments from all over the world by means both legal and illegal.

Bypassing the establishment, the entrepreneurial Woodroof joined forces with an unlikely band of renegades and outcasts, establishing a hugely successful buyers' club.

McConaughey was...

Predictions: 2014 Oscar Nominations Could Be A 'Hustle'

January 15th, 2014 8:50pm EST
American Hustle
The Oscar nominations are relatively easy to predict most years, but there are always a couple of nominees that seem to sneak in out of nowhere. Remember Maggie Gyllenhaal in ‘Crazy Heart’ a couple of years ago? Or Jacki Weaver for ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ last year?

That being said, there are a few question marks this year. Let’s take a look at who has the best shot at being nominated tomorrow morning.

Best Picture

Most likely:

’12 Years a Slave’

‘Gravity’

‘American Hustle’

‘Dallas Buyers Club’

‘Her’

‘Captain Phillips’

‘Nebraska’

‘The Wolf of Wall Street’

Movie Review: 'Dallas Buyers Club'

December 16th, 2013 6:00pm EST
Dallas Buyers Club
I will admit, as of the time I’m writing this review, I haven’t quite seen every film of 2013. But as of this moment, I’ve seen 71 films, and Dallas Buyers Club is the best. Hands down. It’s such a beautiful character arc for McConaughey that you can’t ignore it, and the film itself is just heart wrenching enough, and inspirational enough, to make you stand up and cheer.

 McConaughey is tasked with playing Ron Woodruff, a real-life cowboy, who contracts the HIV virus during the peak of the AIDS crisis, and when men like Ron Woodruff thought only gays could get HIV. Ron turns from being a l...

Golden Globe 2014 Nomination Predictions

December 11th, 2013 8:30pm EST
Dallas Buyers Club
The Golden Globe nominations are tomorrow morning. The Globes tend to nominate big films and big actors. Case in point, the Globes nominated The Tourist. So, smaller actors in smaller films are likely to get lost. This is not the awards show for Fruitvale Station. That being said, there are always a few performances from new actors that can’t be ignored. Even though no one knows who she is, Lupita Nyong’o is still going to get a globe nomination. Here’s a brief overview of what I think will land where:

BEST DRAMA:
12 Years A Slave
Gravity
Captain Phillips
Saving Mr. Banks

SAG Award Nominees Named: '12 Years A Slave' Tops Nods (Full List)

12 Years a Slave
Some people were surprised by The Butler’s presence here, but I don’t see any surprises from them. Movies like Gravity and Her (which are frontrunners for a Best Picture nomination) aren’t large cast films, and wouldn’t get the Ensemble nomination over The Butler. The big surprise is Dallas Buyers Club, which is a relatively small cast, and did manage an Ensemble nomination. That could go a long way in getting DBC to a Best Picture nomination. Also, Daniel Bruhl is back in the race with a Supporting Actor nomination for Rush.

Kudos to the SAG members for nominating James Gandolfini for E...

"Gravity" and "Her" tied for Best Picture at the Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LACFA) annual prizegiving on Sunday. Alfonso Cuaron's space drama and Spike Jonze's unconventional love story were just one of three ties at the event.

Cate Blanchett ("Blue Jasmine") and Adele Exarchopoulos ("Blue Is the Warmest Color") both won Best Actress awards, while James Franco ("Spring Breakers") and Jared Leto ("Dallas Buyers Club") shared the Best Supporting Actor awards. Leto is considered a frontrunner in the race for an Oscar for his portrayal of a transgender person dealing with AIDs.

Box Office Predictions: Christian Bale Won't Defeat Jennifer Lawrence... This Weekend

December 6th, 2013 11:10am EST
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
This could be an entirely different headline when American Hustle opens. Then again, Lawrence is also in American Hustle.

1) The Hunger Games: Catching Fire- 35M Weekend, 345M Total

This is a traditionally slow Box Office weekend, and that will definitely be true for everything that isn’t Hunger Games or Frozen. Everything else will struggle, but these two should keep chugging along at a decent pace.

2) Frozen- 34M Weekend, 137M Total

Frozen remains a top choice, and really the only choice for families. It will continue to perform strong into December.

3) Thor: The Dark World- 6M Weeke...

'Dallas Buyers Club': McConaughey and Leto Deserve Nominations Come Oscar Time

November 8th, 2013 9:51am EST
Dallas Buyers Club
First thing I must say is that, Matthew McConaughey has become one hell of an actor. From ‘Killer Joe’ to ‘Paper Boy’ followed by ‘Mud’ and now ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ he gives nothing less than stellar performances.

‘Dallas Buyers Club' is based on true events and is the story of one man’s determination to survive, against all odds.

The year is 1985, the place Dallas Texas. McConaughey plays Ron Woodroof, a 35 year old electrician and rodeo cowboy.  He lives a life filled with unprotected sex, booze, drugs and hanging out with his homophobic friends.

Except for a few bouts of dizziness, Ro...

Matthew McConaughey
Matthew McConaughey is a little sore from all the weight he lost for a new film project, but he insists he's "as healthy as can be."

Fans have been concerned about the emaciated-looking actor, who lost 40 pounds to play an AIDS victim in "The Dallas Buyer's Club."

McConaughey says his extreme diet isn't harmful, but he admits he has some aches. He told TheDailyBeast.com, "I feel fine. I really do. I'm eating fresh fish. I'm just eating small amounts. I'm not being starved. If anything, it's as much a spiritual journey as it is physical. I have body soreness. (But) I'm as healthy as can be...
