Synopsis:

From IMDb: “When a young loner becomes the gestational surrogate for a single man in his 40s, the two strangers come to realize this unexpected relationship will challenge their perceptions of connection, boundaries and the particulars of love.”

Poster Rating: C-

Review: An inexplicably bland background, poor PhotoShopping, and a cheesy Post-It affectation makes for a confusing design.

Trailer Rating: B-

SEE ALL TRAILERS BELOW
Review: This pseudo-comedy doesn’t have sufficient laughs to draw an audience. The stakes are minimal and we never quite understand what is going to make the film so special even if it is slightly different than a lot of similar comedies.

Oscar Prospects:

None.

Synopsis:

From IMDb: “Secluded in a desolate forest, a broken family is observed by Sator, a supernatural entity who is attempting to claim them.”

Poster Rating: C

Review: Watching the trailer, you’ll wonder what this design has anything to do with it and vice versa. It’s a poorly chosen design with little creative excitement.

Trailer Rating: C

SEE ALL TRAILERS BELOW
Review: A horror film in a style that wants to be Paranormal Activity, but looks completely unlike it. The old woman at the beginning of the trailer sets an improper tone for the rest and the link between the two is never successfully made.

Oscar Prospects:

None.

Review: There was no poster immediately available for my review. Should one become available in the future, this section will be updated.

Trailer Rating: C

Review: If it weren’t in Italian, I could almost see this being made in Hollywood, a Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the foodie crowd. Then again, it would also fit well in the British comedy style since some of the humor here bridges the gap between American and British elements.

Oscar Prospects:

None.

93rd Oscars: Performers Announced

Earlier this week, we had a list of presenters announced and now we have the performers. We also got the pre-show hosts, which is a strange departure, focusing on performers rather than “journalists.”

93RD OSCARS® PERFORMERS KICK OFF OSCAR® SUNDAY

Celeste, H.E.R., Leslie Odom, Jr., Laura Pausini, Daniel Pemberton, Molly Sandén and Diane Warren to Perform Nominated Original Songs

Ariana DeBose, Colman Domingo, Lil Rel Howery and Andrew Rannells
to Host Oscars Specials Live on ABC

LOS ANGELES, CA – Celeste, H.E.R., Leslie Odom, Jr., Laura Pausini, Daniel Pemberton, Molly Sandén and Diane Warren will perform the five nominated original songs in their entirety for “Oscars: Into the Spotlight,” the lead-in to the 93rd Oscars®, producers Jesse Collins, Stacey Sher and Steven Soderbergh announced today. One performance will be recorded in Húsavík, Iceland and four at the Dolby Family Terrace of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles.

“We’ve come up with some serious pre-game and post-game action to enhance our main event,” said Collins, Sher and Soderbergh. “Our suggestion is just tune in for the whole shebang, otherwise you’ll miss something really unexpected and fun.”

Hosted by actors Ariana DeBose (“Hamilton”) and Lil Rel Howery (“Bad Trip”), the 90-minute “Oscars: Into the Spotlight” will highlight the nominees’ journey to Hollywood’s biggest night, give fans around the world the ultimate insiders’ sneak peek into the party and for the first time bring Oscar music to the festivities. The show will feature a special appearance by DJ Tara. “Oscars: Into the Spotlight” will air on Oscar Sunday, April 25, at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT.

At the conclusion of the 93rd Oscars, the celebration continues live on ABC with “Oscars: After Dark,” hosted by actors Colman Domingo (“Zola”) and Andrew Rannells (“The Prom”) and featuring interviews by film critic Elvis Mitchell. The special recaps the evening’s must-see moments and showcases Oscar® winners as they have their statuettes personalized.

Both specials are executive-produced by Michael Antinoro and David Chamberlin, alongside producers Collins, Sher and Soderbergh.

The 93rd Oscars will be held on Sunday, April 25, 2021, at Union Station Los Angeles and the Dolby® Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center® in Hollywood, and international locations via satellite. “Oscars: Into the Spotlight” will air live on Oscar Sunday, April 25, on ABC at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT. The Oscars will be televised live on ABC at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. and in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide. “Oscars: After Dark” will immediately follow the Oscars show.

Precursor: 29th Annie Awards (2020)

(April 11, 2021) Original

Release Date:

April 9, 2021

Synopsis:

From IMDb: “In a world where supervillains are commonplace, two estranged childhood best friends reunite after one devises a treatment that gives them powers to protect their city.”

Poster Rating: C-

SEE ALL POSTERS BELOW
Review: If you were expecting something with a bit more creative energy, you’ve come to the wrong place. While the figures seem like they might have posed for the designs, there are embellishments (like the lapel button pins) that are certainly added after the fact and done porly.

Trailer Rating: C

SEE ALL TRAILERS BELOW
Review: Unlike Spy, this female-centric superhero spoof has none of the laughs and gravitas that Spy featured in spite of having Melissa McCarthy team up with Oscar winner Octavia Spencer.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
