November 2019 in Films

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

Hello film friends! You may have noticed things are a little slow here on The Best Picture Project. That’s because life with two little kids keeps me very busy and I don’t have time to write about every good movie I see. While I may be up to my elbows in diapers, story time and cutting grapes into read more

Frozen II

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Nov 30, 2019

It has been six years since Frozen blasted into theaters and blew audiences away with a new look at Disney princesses and fairy tales. Since then, fans have been eagerly waiting and forming their own theories on what might come next for Elsa, Anna and their friends. While the filmmakers can’t fulfil read more

Midsommar

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

Horror movies often capitalize on darkness, gloom and things that go bump in the night. In Ari Aster’s Midsommar, the main action happens where there is almost no night. This summer solstice festival in remote Sweden is full of bright, dazzling sunshine, flowing green grass and flowers in full bloo read more

Hereditary

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Oct 12, 2019

Ari Aster’s debut horror film, Hereditary, is a dark, brooding, gut punch of grief and guilt. It stars Toni Collette as Annie, a mother and artist who has just lost her own mother. There’s relief mixed with this grief, as her mother was a strange and very private person. She mainly has to console read more

Ready or Not

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Oct 3, 2019

Delightfully twisted, uproariously violent and so very satisfying. Ready or Not the kind of horror movie that is not looking to win any big awards or boast about an all-star cast. Instead, it’s perfectly happy being the outrageous, fun, twisted thrill at the theater. That is what makes it so great, read more

Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Sep 4, 2019

It’s said that Quentin Tarantio has called his latest film, Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood, his Magnum Opus. Whether his fans agree or disagree, to call the 9th out of the 10 planned feature films of his career his most important piece is daring and begs us to pay close attention. To savor eve read more

The Farewell

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

Lulu Wang’s The Farewell is “based on an actual lie.” The film is about her family coming together after learning of her grandmother’s terminal cancer diagnosis. They all travel from America and Japan back to China to be with her, under the guise of a wedding. No one can even hint at Nai Nai’s read more

Toy Story 4

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Jul 3, 2019

Nine years after giving us a perfect ending to the Toy Story trilogy, the creators at Pixar have decided the story is not over. Toy Story 3 did not end with the cliche, And they lived happily ever after, though we could have believed that. Instead, in Toy Story 4, we see that while Bonnie promised read more

Rocketman

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

Rocketman follows the structure of a typical modern music man biopic: sad childhood, talent, quick rise, parties-drugs-sex, hitting rock bottom and then redemption. We’ve seen this before in Bohemian Rhapsody, which considering its success, I think this film would like to be compared to. Unlike the read more

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
