Out Now Bonus: 89th Oscars Part 1 - Predictions


It is an exhilarating time for Out Now with Aaron and Abe, as the 89th Academy Awards will be airing this Sunday.  Because of this, Aaron and Abe have brought together guests Mark Hobin and the lovely Ana Bosch for their annual Oscar Predictions show, which is always a lot of fun, as the group is very competitive when it comes to picking the potential winners.  The gang also discusses who they believe should win and delve into why things may happen the way they do.  It makes for a lot of interesting conversation, but once again shows that these guys do not joke around come Oscar time…well they do, but in the spirit of the ceremony.

89th Academy Awards: Predictions And Other Thoughts


There are only a few days left until the 89th Academy Awards, so it’s time to nail down my predictions. As usual, some categories have obvious picks, a few are even safe bets, but a good portion of this race is still largely up in the air. I try to keep track of the awards season and get a feel for what films seem to have earned their way to Oscar glory, but it’s never an exact science. That said, I have laid out all the categories, with some thoughts on what might be happening come Oscar night. The predictions have been highlighted with what I think will win in each category.

Out Now Commentary - Speed (1994)


This month’s Out Now with Aaron and Abe commentary is a pop quiz for all you hot shots out there. Aaron and Abe are joined by Scott Mendelson and Brandon Peters to talk the 90’s action classic - Speed. This action flick features Keanu Reeves taking on mad bomber Dennis Hopper, with the help of Sandra Bullock and a bus full of hostages in this race against time and well… speed. Tune in to enjoy plenty of neat info about the film, plenty of fun in regards to discussing it and much more. This is a long one, but a really entertaining on, so enjoy.

This week sees the release of a couple notable releases, including a film with Ice Cube and Charlie Day that I didn't get around to seeing. Anyway, Gore Verbinski's A Cure For Wellness is out and certainly worthwhile, given how crazy it is. Speaking of crazy, Zhang Yimou's The Great Wall arrives in America this week and has plenty of goofy fun to share with audiences. There are also some notable home releases, including another Criterion Collection Blu-ray review I was happy to put together. There's also a fun podcast to check out. Enjoy!

Weekly Recap: John Wick: Chapter 2, The LEGO Batman Movie & More!


This is a pretty crazy weekend for geeks, as John Wick: Chapter 2 and The LEGO Batman Movie provide a double-dose of fun where the biggest issue becomes which to see first. Both are quite satisfying, along with the animated films and shorts that are now out in select theaters. There are also a few home releases to look out for as well. I have reviews for all, plus a really fun podcast episode to listen in on. Compared to the slowness of last week, there is now plenty to dig into, which is especially great given just how good these two major new releases really are. Enjoy!

In Theaters Now:

(A proper way to up the ante)

(Clever, hilarious and full of references)

(The two international animated film Oscar nominees)

Thoughts On The Oscar-Nominated Animated & Live-Action Shorts From 2016




Given the creativity and ambition of various filmmakers who are working outside of the world of feature films, it's great to be able to catch up on the Oscar-nominated short films. In addition to the many feature-length movies that are up for big awards, these smaller films are a sampling of the many great short films that arrive every year. Having had the chance to watch the nominated features in the animated and live-action categories (my girlfriend and I will be watching the documentaries soon enough), I wanted to take the time to share some thoughts on all of them. So here they are, presented in alphabetical order.
