Sundance 2020: What to Watch

While the 2019 Awards Season comes to an end on February 9, the 2020 Sundance Film Festival will launch a new around of contenders.

Studio Tours: Disney, Universal, and Warner Bros.

During the Critics’ Choice Awards weekend, Solzy at the Movies visited Walt Disney Studios, Universal Studios, and Warner Brothers Studios for studio tours.

Beverly Hills Cop Trilogy Gets Remastered

The Beverly Hills Cop trilogy, starring Eddie Murphy, is now available on Digital in 4K Ultra HD alongside a new 3-Movie Blu-Ray Collection. The new collection, released today on Blu-ray, features never-before-seen deleted scenes.  The remastered films arrived on Digital.  If you’re an Eddie Murphy fan, the collection is certainly worth it.  After Monday morning’s sour news, perhaps seeing the comedian in his prime could bring a smile to your face.  With a forth film…

Oscars: Nominations for the 92nd Academy Awards

John Cho and Issa Rae announced the 92nd Oscars nominations from the David Geffen Theater at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. There’s a lot to be said about the upcoming Oscars, taking place on February 9, 2020.  For starters, not a single women director was deemed worthy of being one of the five best directors.  This is unfortunate when you have strong contenders such as Greta Gerwig, Marielle Heller, Lulu Wang, and Olivia Wilde. …

77th Golden Globes: Award Winners – Live Updates!

The winners for the 77th annual Golden Globe (Golden Globes) Awards are being announced tonight on NBC from inside The Beverly Hilton International Ballroom. I’m not going to beat around the bush here.  There are many members of the transgender community that are boycotting tonight’s ceremony because Ricky Gervais is hosting the show.  This is because of the comedian has a problematic past with telling transphobic jokes.  Gervais can say that they are just jokes…
