The Solzy Awards for Documentaries in 2023 honor the best of the documentary films that were released during the past year. I’m a member of the Critics Choice Association’s Documentary Branch so I usually watch a good number of documentaries during the year. Instead of waiting until next week, I’ve decided to go ahead and announce the winners today. I’m not awarding a winner in the categories of biographical or sports this year because it’s…"The Solzy Awards for Documentaries in 2023"
The strikes are over and awards season is getting under way so it is time to present the Solzy Awards for Short Films in 2023. I decided to go ahead and announce the awards today rather than wait closer to the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Unfortunately, I did not watch as many short films as I would have liked to watch this past year. I try and cover short films playing film festivals. Because of timing…"The Solzy Awards for Short Films in 2023"
Solzy at the Movies presents the Solzy Awards for 2023…so far, which spotlights the best films and performances of the first half. While I had a chance to screen a few July releases in late June, they are not listed below because of not being released between January and June. Anything not released yet that I screened during a film festival will be listed below under Festival Favorites. There are cases here where I also…"The Solzy Awards for 2023…So Far"
Andor, Star Trek, She-Hulk, and a pair of Taylor Sheridan Series were among the best TV of 2022 that programming had to offer. There were some standouts among the TV series that I was able to fit into an otherwise busy schedule. As the year came to an end, it saw Harrison Ford turned to TV as a series regular in 1923. Ford’s TV stint will continue into the new year when he appears in…"The Best TV of 2022 Includes Andor, Star Trek"
After revisiting the best films of 2011 a year ago, Solzy at the Movies is revisiting the rankings for the best films of 2012. These lists have a way of evolving through the years. Some films have a way of growing on you while one may start wondering what they ever saw in another film. As such, a few films have completely dropped out of my list altogether. I might looked at a film like Ted…"The Best Films of 2012: Revisiting the Rankings"
An annual tradition, Solzy at the Movies presents the Solzy Awards for 2022 as a way of honoring the best achievements this year in film. I need to say something specific about my top films list–The Fabelmans is #1 and Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is #1A. I’ve yet to figure out how to change the numbering on WordPress. While many films fell short of my top 36 features, there are those that came…"The Solzy Awards for 2022: The Best in Film"
The Solzy Awards for Documentaries in 2022 honor the best of the documentary films that were released during the past year. I’m a member of the Critics Choice Association’s Documentary Branch so I’ve had to watch a lot of documentaries this year. This would have run sooner but there were some additional documentaries that I needed to watch before publishing. One of them was a three-part documentary that I put off until I could give…"The Solzy Awards for Documentaries in 2022"
Solzy at Movies takes a look back at the best films of 2011 and updates the rankings after a decade of time has passed. Choosing the best films of the year in early or mid-December sometimes isn’t the best idea. There are times when you really need more time to rank the films. Or in my case, I grew up in Louisville, Ky., so not everything came out before the end of the year. In…"The Best Films of 2011: Revisiting The Rankings"
An annual tradition, Solzy at the Movies presents the Solzy Awards for 2021 as a way of honoring the best achievements this year in film. You might notice some films that you forgot about but that’s only because I did include the first two months of the year. The Solzy Awards for 2021 Top 36 Narrative Features Don’t Look Up Belfast The Mitchells vs. The Machines CODA Spider-Man: No Way Home No Time To Die…"The Solzy Awards for 2021: The Best in Film"
The Solzy Awards for Documentaries in 2021 honor the best of the documentary films that were released during the past year. These are my awards and so, I don’t play by studio rules when it comes to documentaries and docuseries. If I think a three-part documentary from Peter Jackson is the best documentary of the year, I am going to say so. Because it is! And to be fair, it was initially scheduled for a…"The Solzy Awards for Documentaries in 2021"
