Good Feels on Wheels

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on May 14, 2019

Last week, I went to the Indy Film Fest, here in Indianapolis, to see Good Feels on Wheels, a film written and directed by Ronald Short. I’ve written before about Ronald and his filmmaking passion that he’s been pursuing since his teens. While he’s made numerous shorts and a web series, Good Feels read more

Missing Link

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Apr 22, 2019

In Laika’s newest animated film, a British adventurer, Lionel (Hugh Jackman), seeks out the elusive sasquatch. He does this not for research or sport, but to secure a place in some high society club. You see, his peers look down Lionel. They don’t consider his work worthy and they just plain don’t read more

Oscar Predictions 2018

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Feb 23, 2019

Can you believe how crazy this year has been for the Academy Awards? First there was that news about a “Popular Film” category being added in the middle of the year. Thankfully that didn’t happen. Then there was the whole Kevin Hart fiasco that led to the show having no host, we’ll see how that read more

Roma

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Feb 21, 2019

About his newest film, Roma, Alfonso Cuarón has stated, “There are periods in history that scar societies and moments in life that transform us as individuals. Time and space constrain us, but they also define who we are, creating inexplicable bonds with others that flow with us at the same time read more

Black Panther

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Feb 19, 2019

Like many film enthusiasts, I enjoy the Marvel films with their colorful array of superheroes, out of this world adventures and big budget effects. They’re not always my favorite, but they are a fun escape. When I saw Black Panther I knew this was so much more than a simple superhero film. Never be read more

Green Book

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Feb 16, 2019

The title Green Book refers to an artifact that many never knew existed. Published until 1966,  The Negro Travelers’ Green Book served as a reference guide to find restaurants and lodging that would serve blacks, especially in the deep south. Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen) and Dr. Don Shirley (Mah read more

Vice

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Feb 13, 2019

When Vice came up as my brother and I were talking about this year’s Oscar race, he dismissed it. “What do I care about Dick Cheney? That was years ago and it’s just gonna be about how he shot that one guy in the face.” I had to laugh, but I told him he really should check it out. I know my read more

BlacKkKlansman

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Feb 11, 2019

The first image in BlacKkKlansman is a familiar one for most film fans. It’s that iconic longshot in Gone with the Wind where Scarlett looks for a doctor among a sprawling rusty red-dirt field of wounded Confederate soldiers that pans out to show a tattered Confederate flag waving above them. read more

Mary Poppins Returns

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Feb 8, 2019

Set about 30 years after Poppins’ first visit with the Banks family, Mary Poppins Returns is another spoon full of sugar for a dark time in the Banks home. Michael (Ben Whishaw) is recently widowed with three young children, the family home and financial woes. His sister, Jane (Emily Mortimer) is read more

The Favourite

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Feb 1, 2019

At first glance, The Favourite looks like your typical tight lipped, historically askew, British costume drama. It may look like a fancy Downton Abbey spin off, but your grandma may be too shocked and spit out her tea at times. With it’s sharp wit, intrigue, power struggles and plenty of sex, it bec read more

Bohemian Rhapsody

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Jan 28, 2019

I’ll be honest, it took me forever to write this review because I kept getting distracted listening to my favorite Queen songs. Under Pressure, Hammer to Fall, Killer Queen, Radio Gaga, Flash and the title of this wonderful film, Bohemian Rhapsody, the list goes on. After seeing the film, I came hom read more

A Star is Born (2018)

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Jan 23, 2019

A Star is Born is a story that seems to be revived every couple decades. The first film was in 1937. A remake with Judy Garland and James Mason came in 1954. And another came to be with Barbara Streisand in 1976. Now, with Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper stars and has made his directorial debut with his n read more

Ralph Breaks the Internet

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Jan 17, 2019

These days, most people with access to a movie theater use, rely and basically live on the internet. I know I do. And you wouldn’t be reading this without it. However, a lot of children have a much more limited access to all that is out there on the internet and you may be wondering how in the world read more

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Jan 8, 2019

Never have I seen a film like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The animation style is like nothing I had ever seen before. It’s so exciting and refreshing, yet hard to describe. It looks a little like the creators took inspiration from the style in A Scanner Darkly, made it a whole lot better and read more

Monster House

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Oct 26, 2018

As a parent, I understand how hard it can be to find an appropriate Halloween movie that can interest adults and give kids a mild scare. Monster House is a rare gem that delivers on just that. Back when the film was in theaters in 2006 I was still in the movie business (selling popcorn) and took my read more

Hellraiser

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Oct 12, 2018

Ever since I was a kid there was this particular image associated with the name Hellraiser. It might come to your mind as well; a man wearing tight black clothing and all over his chalk white face in a very geometric pattern are thin needles protruding out. Like a human albino cactus. I saw this ima read more

The Conjuring

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Oct 5, 2018

From the very beginning, the filmmakers of The Conjuring want you to understand that what you’re about to watch is based on a true story. Maybe they know that makes this story all the more terrifying. With any movie, we expect some exaggerations and liberties to be taken for dramatic effect, but whe read more

2001: A Space Odyssey

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Sep 26, 2018

The first time I saw Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey was about ten years ago on a computer screen across the room. Though I was intrigued, it was late and collectively, my husband and I slept through half the movie. Disappointing, I know. However, a few weeks ago, my brother gave me a wonder read more

Incredibles 2

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Aug 30, 2018

It’s been fourteen years since we first met Pixar’s family of superheroes, yet their story picks up from the moment the first film ended. It opens with the Parr family springing into action to stop The Underminer, while they juggle babysitting Jack Jack, and it ensures us that this film will be read more

Upgrade to Mom 2.0

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Aug 27, 2018

Hello readers, sorry it’s been a while. As of the last post here, I was uncomfortably 31 weeks pregnant with kid number 2. Since then, I swelled up to the point that I could barely walk and gave birth to a nearly 9 lb baby. My son was born on July 4th, so we’ll be watching Yankee Doodle Dandy and read more
