Posted on February 27th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

There are not many performances that are better this year than Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay. It will be a travesty if neither gets nominated for an Oscar nomination, with Tremblay getting a nom for Best Actor. These two actors gave wonderful performances as mother and son, and with a beautiful relatability considering that the […]

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

When everyone asks me what some of my favorite films of the year are, Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers immediately comes to mind.

Posted on February 28th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

Under the Skin is one of those films that is equally hypnotic in its gorgeous visuals as it is in our lead actress’ performance. With 2003’s Lost in Translation, last year’s Don Jon and Her, and now Under the Skin, can I just go ahead and say that Scarlett Johansson is one of the best […]

Jake Gyllenhaal re-teaming with Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve ended up producing one of the best and most thought-provoking films of the year.
