The big movie news for this week mainly revolved around the Oscar nominations, which I have a whole article on concerning my thoughts. As far as new releases go, The Kid Who Would Be King is out and it's a solid live-action fantasy-adventure for kids. Plenty of best picture nominees expanded to more theaters, so I have previous reviews posted for those as well. Plus, new home releases and some other good stuff. Lastly, we had a great podcast for Glassthis week, so feel free to listen in to that. Enjoy!

91st Academy Award Nominations & Thoughts

Image
For a variety of reasons, the films of 2018 have led to a strange and competitive award season. Now we have the nominees of the 91st Academy Awards, which continue to add fuel to certain fires, as far as which films have been deemed award-worthy, and which ones have been left off the list. Overall, despite some minor surprises here or there, the main categories gave me pretty much a list of everything expected, which is both a little disappointing to see a lack of more variety and disheartening given certain films I don't care for that racked up nominations. Going off of what has been announced today, here's the list of nominees, with some of my own commentary on what I am taking away as of now. The ceremony won't air until February 24, and I'll have more Oscar-related content in the weeks to come. For now, enjoy what I've put together in regards to this year's batch of potential award winners.

Out Now Commentary: Unbreakable (2000)

Image
This first Out Now with Aaron and Abe commentary track of 2019 brings us back to the world of comic books. With the upcoming release of M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass, Aaron was joined by Brandon Peters and Scott Mendelson to go over the Bruce Willis/Samuel L. Jackson two-hander, Unbreakable. The stylish but low-key drama has a lot of material worth discussing, as Shyamalan has an interesting career, and this movie has plenty of ideas and more to explore in regards to superheroes in the real world. Listen in, as the group has plenty of fun going over this major highlight of Shyamalan’s films, and why it works so well, along with what a plot twist actually is, and other fun tangents.So now, if you’ve got an hour to kill…
