I saw 90 movies in 2013 (or shortly thereafter, if we’re being honest- I don’t know how anyone is expected to see all the Christmas releases in one week!). 90 is a lot of movies, or at least it is for me (I head up My Theatre and My TV, My Cinema is Rachael’s problem). […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2013 My Cinema Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. The Dirties was an affecting phenomenon of visceral independent filmmaking.

The coming-of-age indie premiered at Cannes in 2012 where it received a Palme d’Or […]

In the Louisiana bayou, cut off from the rest of the world, a small free-spirited community has settled down. In this water-sunken place (or, as the locals refer to it, “the bathtub”) the poverty is surreal, yet no one seems to mind. Seen through the eyes of 6-year-old Hushpuppy (Quvenzhané Wallis) it is “The most […]

I am all about the alt-rom-com this year and Celeste & Jesse Forever is the second great one that came out this summer. I’ve been flipflopping on whether or not I like Rashida Jones for years. My dislike of Karen (The Office) was too strong to be erased even by her being a part of […]

Ruby Sparks was my most anticipated movie of the summer and it was the first time in a long while that I went in with high expectations and had them surpassed.
