When the last award of the night was announced this evening, viewers were stunned to learn Anthony Hopkins beat Chadwick Boseman. I apologize if none of this is coherent as I am still in a state of shock. Hopkins gave a commanding performance in the film but Chadwick Boseman all but locked it up. When Joaquin Phoenix opened it up, I was shocked. I mean, I had the tweet ready to go and then suddenly…"Anthony Hopkins Over Chadwick Boseman: A Shock"
Sir Anthony Hopkins delivers yet another top-notch performance as an aging father with dementia in The Father, which is emotionally moving. When the film premiered during Sundance earlier this year, Hopkins was in the closing weeks of the Oscar race for The Two Popes. While he may have lost out, he’s back in the running and is almost certainly the front-runner. It’s not unlike Hopkins to deliver a masterclass performance and here is on display…"AFI FEST 2020: The Father"
The Two Popes takes a look at tradition verses reform in this look at the differences in approach from Popes Benedict XVI and Francis. This is a film that features top-notch acting performances from both Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce. Even for a Jewish person such as myself, I didn’t feel that this was a film looking to teach us about religion. Instead, it’s an examination of two people with a differing approach to issues…"The Two Popes: Tradition vs. Reform"

Thor: The Dark World is far from the best film in the franchise as the Avenger battles against Malekith’s attempt to destroy the universe. The sequel incorporates a prologue like its predecessor. This a great way of setting not just the tone but introduce us to new characters. It turns out that once upon a time, Asgard was at battle against the Dark Elves. But this battle is one that is far from over. It’s…"Thor: The Dark World – The Road to Endgame"
Thor introduces an entirely new realm of mythology to the Marvel Cinematic Universe by way of the wondrous beauty that is Asgard. The film’s prologue introduces us to the nine realms, Asgardians, and Frost Giants. We already had somewhat of an introduction during Captain America with the search for the Tesseract. It goes without saying that one expands upon the mythology. The main artifact that drives the plot is the Casket of Ancient Winters. It’s…"Thor – The Road to Endgame"
