Latest Episodes
  • Puss in Boots: The Last Wish is nominated for an animated feature film Oscar. Here's why the latest animation movie from DreamWorks Animation is deserving of such a nomination.
  • The latest entry in the killer-doll genre of cinema is M3GAN, as in "Model 3 Generative Android." The animatronic doll is engineered to be a little girl's best friend and protector, but M3GAN becomes a little bit too protective.
  • Tom Hanks plays Otto Anderson in A Man Called Otto. Look for an actor Oscar nomination for Hanks as Otto, a distraught widower who must learn to live again with the help of new neighbors and a fluffy stray cat.
  • The Whale is an Oscar contender for the impressive performance of Brendan Fraser as a person with a food addiction. The film confronts many topical subjects.
