2018 Academy Awards Predictions

Is it just me, or did the wait for the Academy Awards feel like an eternity this year? We’ve been talking about the show and the nominees for so long that I’ve reached a point of indifference (which is weird because this is my Super Bowl). It doesn’t help that the current social and political climate makes one month feel like three years. Also, I don’t care to watch Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri win everything again. Whatever it is, I’m just kind of meh about the whole show this year. Anyway, let’s get to the reason you clicked! Below are my Oscar predictions. You can see the full list of nominees here.

Oprah Winfrey at the Golden Globes 2018

Recap of 2018 Golden Globes with GIFs

Good morning, ladies and remaining gentleman! Last night’s Golden Globes felt a little…weird, didn’t it? Not just because Hollywood is experiencing a creeper reckoning, but also because the show was kept extremely tight. It ended at 10pm, which practically never happens. Sure, it’s refreshing because I went to bed before midnight, but for the first time, it felt like I was just watching people hand out awards. Like the entertainment was sacrificed for efficiency.

2018 Golden Globes Predictions

Tonight, Seth Meyers hosts the Golden Globes, and it’s sure to be an interesting night. Meyers is one of the better late-night hosts, and he’s excellent at tackling current events, thanks to his years hosting Weekend Update on SNL. But more importantly, we’ve seen a social and cultural shift in Hollywood over the last few months, as the rapey, abusive creeps who’ve been gatekeeping opportunity and progress for decades are slowly but surely being weeded out. And it will no doubt be an underlying theme of the evening. I’m not saying I hope someone starts some shit tonight, but like I’m also not not saying that…(*whispers* Burn it down).

When Harry Met Sally (1989)

Bailey’s 25 Days of Christmas Movies

You know how ABC Family (Yeah, I still call it that because “Freeform” is a dumb name) does their “25 Days of Christmas” movie lineup? Well, it’s garbage, and you should not watch that. It’s like the same 12 movies played at different times of the day so you think you’re getting a new movie each time. So I say ditch that, and check out my holiday movie watchlist! That is, of course, unless you like watching The Santa Clause eight times in one week, in which case I hate everything you stand for, and you should take your holiday hoobie whatty elsewhere.

War for the Planet of the Apes (2017)

Slackers Gotta Slack: Let’s Play Movie Catchup!

So I’ve been bad about writing reviews this month. Because summer and shit. You know how it goes. Eating too much barbecue, doing things outside, occasionally getting super depressed thinking about how the inevitable heat death of the universe is coming for us all. The usual stuff. And hey! I managed to tackle Spider-Man: Homecoming, so that’s an accomplishment. But I still have drafts sitting open for Baby DriverWar for the Planet of the Apes, and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets that, let’s be honest, I’m not going to finish. So I figured, screw it, let’s just drop a quick review for each into a single post. That way, we can get caught up! Continue reading “Slackers Gotta Slack: Let’s Play Movie Catchup!”
