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

Tully

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on May 13, 2018

Mother’s Day is here and just like a hot latte and clean yoga pants Tully is here just in time to help us celebrate with a thoughtful, smart and brutally honest story of modern motherhood. However, if you’re looking for a cute, uplifting, Bad Moms style barrel of laughs, Tully might not be for you read more

John Williams in Indianapolis

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Mar 22, 2018

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to have a once in a lifetime experience that any film fan or music nerd would kill for. I got to see John Williams conducting some of his most iconic film music, live with my hometown orchestra, the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. I don’t want to exaggerate, but read more

Oscar Predictions 2017

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Mar 3, 2018

Welcome to Oscar weekend! As we get ready for the Academy Awards on Sunday night, let me share my picks and predictions. First, let’s pretend it’s the old days where only 5 films were nominated for Best Picture. My picks would narrow the running down to: Three Billboards             Get read more

The Post

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Mar 1, 2018

To be honest, I was not looking forward to seeing The Post, which is surprising since I am usually anxiously awaiting Steven Spielberg’s films. While I do appreciate the genre, there’s just something about films featuring hardworking, honest journalists fighting against the man that does read more

Phantom Thread

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Feb 25, 2018

There are few things that many women universally love and covet, but Phantom Thread focuses on two: beautiful things to wear and the love of a man. Both can make a woman feel lovely, wanted and desired. However, if anything comes between her and the things or person who makes her feel this way, reta read more

Call Me By Your Name

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Feb 23, 2018

The opening credits of Call Me By Your Name feature images of ancient Greek and Roman statues. They are various depictions of young men, their naked likeness preserved smooth in stone with sensual curves. Anyone who’s seen Michelangelo’s David understands the concept. Throughout the film, our read more

Darkest Hour

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Feb 19, 2018

Darkest Hour puts the first few weeks of Winston Churchill’s time as Prime Minister under a microscope. It is May 1940, and England’s politics are shaky as Neville Chamberlain is voted out as Prime Minister. Churchill is not the first choice, and has his political enemies, but is appointed next. read more

The Boss Baby

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Feb 16, 2018

Once the Oscar nominations were announced, there was a sudden backlash against The Boss Baby. How could such tripe be nominated for Best Animated Feature over popular franchise gems like The Lego Batman Movie or Cars 3? In my opinion, easily, like taking candy from a baby. You see, Dreamworks’ The read more

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Feb 11, 2018

In the midst of the MeToo era, Three Billboards is a resounding battle-cry for those seeking justice. In the film, Mildred (Frances McDormand) pays for three old billboards to display a message calling out the local police department to find the man who raped and murdered her daughter seven months a read more

Get Out

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

Since it was released to theaters in March of 2017, Get Out has been wowing audiences. I knew this was the sort of film full of surprises, so I made sure to avoid any spoilers until I was ready to see it and only knew how it was described to me: Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner turned into a horror movi read more

Lady Bird

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Jan 29, 2018

I had a writing professor once tell me that the best autobiographical stories are not written the day after the event. It is best to wait and let it age, like a fine wine. She suggested about ten years, maybe more. In Lady Bird, director and writer Greta Gerwig tells a coming of age story about a gi read more

The Shape of Water

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Jan 25, 2018

Guillermo del Toro is the kind of director that can bring the most strange and implausible scenarios to life with such detail and beauty that we wholeheartedly believe in them. He is the sort of visionary that can manipulate our suspension of disbelief perfectly for his ideas. In The Shape of Water, read more
