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

Year Eight

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

It’s been nearly eight years since I started The Best Picture Project. Eight years since I decided to watch and review every film nominated for Best Picture. A lot has happened over those eight years. I’ve lived in three different states. Had jobs, quit jobs. Made friends, lost loved ones. My husban read more

The Emigrants

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Jan 17, 2018

In case anyone is keeping track, I’ve been looking for this film for over seven years. Enjoy. The lives this film lays before us are not for the faint of heart. Oskar (Max von Sydow) and his wife, Kristina (Liv Ullmann) are at the mercy of their land. If their crops fail, they won’t be able to feed read more

Goosebumps

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Oct 31, 2017

In the mid 1990s, I was about ten years old and read nearly every Goosebumps book R.L. Stine wrote. I was a kid obsessed with creepy ventriloquist dummies, monster blood, haunted masks and ghosts next door. Most of my old Goosebumps books are still on my bookshelves, waiting for my kid to be ready t read more

It Follows

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Oct 27, 2017

There has always been a correlation between sex and becoming a victim in a horror movie, but never quite like in It Follows. In this film, having sex passes on a supernatural force, like an STD that will follow you until it literally catches and kills you. It always slowly follows the latest person read more

Young Frankenstein

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Oct 23, 2017

I’ve heard it said that while Blazing Saddles is Mel Brooks’ funniest film, Young Frankenstein is his best. I have to agree with both parts of that statement, with no offence to either films. Young Frankenstein is still hilarious while Blazing Saddles is on another level of side splitting fun. But read more

It

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Oct 9, 2017

Fear is a powerful force. In It an evil entity lives in the sewers and emerges every twenty-seven years to feed off of fear by taking people, especially children. In the opening scene, we watch mesmerized in terror, awaiting little Georgie’s fate as he meets Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård), holding his read more

Crimson Peak

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Oct 4, 2017

Horror films in the 21st century have become stale with so many modern takes on old characters, nightmares fueled by technology and enough exorcisms to bore the Pope. However, Crimson Peak is refreshing bit of modern film macabre in a gothic setting perfect for a fresh ghost story. The film jumps ri read more

Happy October!

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Oct 1, 2017

Welcome to October, boys and ghouls! Here at The Best Picture Project, I like to share some delightfully spooky and downright terrifying movies to enjoy during the Halloween season. This season is especially fun for me because my little boy is very into all things Halloween. He requests The Nightmar read more

I Love The Historic Artcraft Theatre

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Sep 22, 2017

Today I’d like to do something different and write about my new favorite place: The Historic Artcraft Theater of Franklin Indiana. It was my brother who first told me about The Artcraft. He went to a showing of To Kill A Mockingbird there with friends and was blown away. For nearly an hour on the read more

The Lion King

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Aug 11, 2017

As the lights went dark in the theater last weekend, I watched my son’s face in anticipation. I’ll always remember how I felt at the start of The Lion King. The singing call and the sun rising startled and shook me inside. I remember being amazed, mystified and engrossed in the film, especially read more

Dunkirk

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Aug 1, 2017

Christopher Nolan’s newest film, Dunkirk, is a war film like no other. Personally, I made sure to see this film in a 70mm IMAX cinema and I highly recommend doing so. For many film fans, it is an experience not to be missed. Enemy Germans surround Dunkirk and are closing in. All the British troops read more

Cars 3

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Jun 30, 2017

Cars 3 takes the loved four-wheeled franchise back to its racing roots. This time, Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) is the older racer looking for a new edge against the next generation. The rookies are all highly trained using the newest technology, statistical analysis and fancy simulator read more

Wonder Woman

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Jun 23, 2017

First off, let’s state the obvious. It’s refreshing to see a superhero movie with a woman in the spotlight and not on display for her body, but for her abilities. Sure, we’ve seen female superheroes before, but they’ve never had the opportunity a feature film like this. And if we look back read more

Oscar Predictions 2016

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Feb 25, 2017

Welcome to Oscar weekend! Tomorrow night all the glitz and glam of Hollywood will be on the Academy Awards red carpet strutting their stuff and taking home some trophies. Before I wrap up another amazing year at The Best Picture Project, I have to acknowledge that I would not have been able to keep read more

Hacksaw Ridge

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Feb 25, 2017

Not since 1998, with Saving Private Ryan, has there been a gritty war film depicting the bravery and American heroics of WWII nominated for Best Picture. With Hacksaw Ridge, Mel Gibson seems to bring the genre back for a new generation. Not for the blood-lust glory of a seasoned warrior, but to tell read more

Moonlight chronicles the life of Chiron, a boy growing up in a rough Miami neighborhood. The film is broken up into three acts, featuring Chiron at different stages of his life. In the first act, entitled Little, we meet nine year old Chiron, but here everyone calls him Little. After being chased b read more

Manchester by the Sea

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Feb 19, 2017

Manchester by the Sea is a powerful, emotional story of loss, grief, pain and family. When Lee (Casey Affleck) returns to his hometown after his brother’s death, he takes care of his nephew, Patrick (Lucas Hedges) and helps make arrangements. Lee is a loner, doesn’t care to interact with anyone read more
