SORT BY Relevancy
Noted film critics Nell Minow, A.J. Hakari and James Colt Harrison drop by to share their predictions for the 87th Academy Awards, which will be given out on February 22nd. For the Best Picture, will panel members pick blockbuster American Sniper or 12-year-in-the making Boyhood or the wildly imaginative Birdman or the gorgeous Grand Budapest Hotel -- or one of the other eight nominees? And who will they predict to win Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress? Listen to find out!
All three critics are eminently qualified for this discussion. Nell, the famous Movie Mom, writes commentary for Beliefnet.com and is the author of many film-related books. She’s been featured in such publications as USA Today and The New York Times. A.J., the Mad Movie Man, contributes film reviews to sites like Classic Movie Guide, Review Express, Terror Tube, ReelTalk Movie Reviews and his own popular blog Cineslice. James, a film historian, served as the premier film critic for the La Jolla Village News and has contributed film commentary to such outlets as Rage Monthly, No Cover Music Magazine and San Diego Metro Weekly.
Renowned film critics A.J. Hakari and Mack Bates drop by to discuss the movie release schedule for Summer of 2015. Their goal? To help moviegoers pick the cream of the crop from over 85 summer releases. Mack, an Emmy winner, has contributed freelance articles to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and serves as a staff blogger for Milwaukee Magazine’s official film blog. A.J., the Mad Movie Man, writes film reviews for a number of sites including ReelTalk Movie Reviews, Review Express, Classic Movie Guide and Terror Tube. He is also the founder of CineSlice, his own popular movie blog. This should be another lively and fun episode for movie fans!
Among the films scheduled for release this summer, which ones are most eagerly anticipated and why? Some of the contenders are: Mr. Holmes, Jurassic World, Mad Max, Pitch Perfect 2, Tomorrowland, Minions, Spy, Live from New York, Insidious Chapter 3, Pan, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, Ant-Man, Southpaw, Fantastic Four, Grandma, Master-Minds, Dark Places, Ricki and the Flash.

Natalie Christine Johnson is one of Hollywood South’s most in-demand makeup artists. With a background in Psychology and a degree in fine arts from the University of New Orleans, Johnson began her career with M.A.C. because a fellow makeup artist happened to like the way she did her makeup when she happened upon her while working in a mall. Natalie used any kind of canvas she could get her hands on and realized that a face was just another medium. She quickly made the move into film and television. With almost 50 productions under her belt in the past 3 years, Johnson has worked on everything from big budget feature films such as the widely popular Left Behind series with Nicolas Cage, to music videos, network and reality TV, and the Sundance darling Sex, Guaranteed where she met and worked with Stephen Dorff. After working together on that project he later asked her to be his personal makeup artist for their next project together, The American Hero. Her commercial work ranges from local universities to clients like McDonald’s, Wal-Mart, Visa and the NFL. Expanding from beauty to special effects makeup, Johnson has worked for the last three years as a makeup department head and creative consultant for the independent and festival award winning production company, Little to N.O. Budget Films. Working closely with the director and writers, her vision helped develop worlds of zombies, ghosts, and surreal carnivals. She recently worked on the projects Abattoir and Cold Moon.
