Reviewing Ebert's 'Greatest Films': Woodstock (1970)

Published by

Woodstock Jaime January 2014
There are documentaries that attempt to recreate events and there are documentaries that capture moments as they take place.  Woodstock provides the sense that you've opened a time capsule, bottling into a film an event that not only symbolized a generation, but also the human spirit that went with it.

In 2011, he appeared in Moneyball and got an Oscar nomination. And now he’s worked with Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio for The Wolf of Wall Street. His career...

Oscar Scuttlebutt: The DGA and the Tightening Race

The Wolf of Wall street
Though the box office hasn't been stellar, the late birth of Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street may have given it more energy than some of the other limited release Oscar contenders. At least it seems that way going by the DGA announcements.

Alfonso Cuaron and Martin Scorsese Lead the 2013 DGA Nominations

Published by

Gravity
The DGA nominations (and usually the winners) are one of the clearest bellwethers for how the Oscars are going to go down. This year's five nominations helps set up a playing field, and it's one where David O. Russell and Martin Scorsese will compete for the same award.

This week brings Fast and Furious 6 to home video, a release that only reminds of the recent loss of Paul Walker. It also brings Despicable Me 2, the second biggest film of the summer (and the year to date, it should get passed by The Hunger Games: Catching Fire). That and some Disney classics make for a good week of home video.

Oscar Scuttlebutt: Time to Take Stock of the Oscar Race

We're just into November, and though there are definite candidates for who could be Oscar nominated, we've still got two months of releases to go, and very little sense of the room temperature. Why? Number one, because academy voters haven't seen the films, and number two, because in some cases, only a handful of people have seen the finished films.

Oscar Scuttlebutt: Martin Scorsese and Ridley Scott are in the Mix

Published by

The Counselor
This week in Oscar ephemera, we've seen 12 Years a Slave do exceptionally well in limited release, we'll see Blue is the Warmest Color hit American screens, and Ridley Scott's latest film The Counselor sneaks into theaters. And we know for sure that there's a big dog in the race.

the wolf of wall street
If there are two things Martin Scorsese loves to make, it’s films featuring a fourth wall-breaking protagonist whose narrative arc is of the ‘meteoric rise and fall’ variety, and films featuring Leonardo DiCaprio.  Those two elements seem to collide quite powerfully in the flashy trailer for Scorsese’s newest, The Wolf of Wall Street.

10 Filmmakers Who Stepped Out Of Their Comfort Zone
Actors aren't the only ones who get typecast and put into a category. Prestigious filmmakers are almost always given projects that fit their signature work. You usually don't hear of a horror filmmaker directing a romantic comedy, per say. But every now and then, directors will venture outside of their comfort zones and shock us with something truly different, as Michael Bay is trying this...

If you’re wondering what could possibly be next for Martin Scorsese, then you know it could be one of a bevy of projects talented director eternally has at his fingertips; it could be Silence, or perhaps The Irishman, or maybe, just maybe, he’ll finally get around to directing the long-rumored biopic of legendary singer and actor, Frank...

It seems Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese has finally given up on film in favor of shooting digital for his next film, The Wolf of Wall Street – according to his long-time editor, Thelma Schoonmaker.

When the academy gives a foreign actor a Best Acting Oscar, it's just as often an invitation to come play in the studio pond.  So it's no surprise that The Artist's Jean Dujardin is in talks to join Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street.

Years ago, ScreenCrave contributor Jaime Lopez privately began tackling Roger Ebert's "Greatest Films" list, an ever-expanding monolith of celluloid currently comprised of 354 films.   With 254 under his belt and 100 films left to go, Lopez has set himself to put these remaining films' "Greatness" to the test--reviewing both the movies themselves and Ebert's...

Raging Bull is many things—uncompromising, vicious, beautiful, daring, funny, harrowing, and brilliant.  Modern movie sequels tend to be, with very few exceptions, absolutely none of those things.  So, of course, it makes sense that Hollywood would churn out a Raging Bull sequel 32 years after the original battered its way into celluloid history, and will...
