Jason Sudeikis spoke about his biggest improv lesson following Critics Choice Awards wins for Best Actor and Best Comedy Series. Ted Lasso was a big winner tonight with three wins for Best Comedy Series, Best Actor, and Best Supporting Actress (Hannah Waddingham). It wasn’t a complete comedy sweep in television comedy since nobody was up for Best Actress. However, the series, which premiered in August 2020, won all three awards they were nominated for. Ted…"Jason Sudeikis on Improv’s Biggest Lesson"
The 26th annual Critics Choice Awards were held on Sunday evening and Solzy at the Movies had the honor of voting for the award winners. In an effort to display complete transparency, the following is how I voted during tonight’s Critics Choice Awards. There were some instances where I voted one way while knowing deep in my gut that the winner would be someone else. I’m proud to be a member of this organization. We’ll…"Critics Choice Awards: My Ballot"
The 26th annual Critics Choice Awards may have gone virtual this year but Netflix took home the most wins between film and TV. The Critics Choice Awards are bestowed annually to honor the finest in cinematic and television achievement. Historically, these awards are the most accurate predictor of Academy Award nominations. It’s almost a safe bet by now that Nomadland will take home Best Picture in April. Chadwick Boseman and Daniel Kaluuya also seem like…"Critics Choice Awards: The 26th Annual Winners"
The highly anticipated Coming 2 America arrives on Amazon Prime Video with a number of not-funny jokes and date rape as a plot device. Maybe it was for the best that this sequel bypassed theaters for Amazon Prime Video. Or maybe it was for the best that the press screener also had video lag. It means thankfully not having to spend all afternoon and evening being angry. I’m just going to cut straight to the…"Coming 2 America: A Non-Review Review"
Boogie, the new film from Fresh Off the Boat producer Eddie Huang, follows Alfred “Boogie” Chin as he dreams of playing in the NBA. To my fellow Kentucky Wildcats fans, this isn’t a documentary or biopic about DeMarcus Cousins. As a Wildcats fan, I feel it is necessary to let you know. Sorry, not sorry. Not a Wildcats fan? Move along, move along. As if writer-director Eddie Huang doesn’t have enough to do behind the…"Boogie Isn’t Quite A Slam Dunk"
Chaos Walking might be pleasing for fans of the trilogy that it is based on but for other viewers, this film is a muddled mess. This film takes place in 2257 on a distant planet where Todd Hewitt (Tom Holland) encounters Viola (Daisy Ridley). It just so happens that Viola’s ship crashes on his planet. It’s a very strange sci-fi film. For one, all of the women have disappeared from the New World. The other…"Chaos Walking Is A Muddled Mess"
My Salinger Year is a charming coming-of-age film that draws on Joanna Rakoff’s experience working at an agency representing J.D. Salinger. Joanna Rakoff (Margaret Qualley) leaves grad school for New York in hopes of starting a writing career. Next thing you know, she’s working for Margaret (Sigourney Weaver) at a literary agency. The agency is old school with typewriters everywhere and nary a computer in sight. It certainly is not a smart idea to inform…"My Salinger Year: A Charming Coming-Of-Age Film"
It’s very easy to look at Moxie and think it’s a Mean Girls copycat but when you step back, this is very much a #MeToo film. This is a film that deals with the arrival of a new student but not in the same way as the Tina Fey-directed film. But at the same time, new student Lucy (Alycia Pascual-Peña) isn’t the main star of the film. Vivian (Hadley Robinson) takes an ode to her…"Moxie: A Feminist Revolution"
Disney has done it again as the cast and crew of Raya and the Last Dragon take viewers on another heartwarming adventure. One thing I love about this film is that it is authentic in every sense of the word. While the film itself takes place in the fantasy world of Kumandra, it is inspired by the Southeast Asian culture. This also includes the fighting styles that we see on screen. We can see this…"Raya and the Last Dragon is Heartwarming"
