CRITICWATCH - QUOTE WHORES COME INTO FOCUS IN 2015
by Erik Childress
"Will Smith is back in theaters this weekend after almost two years off - not counting his career-defining cameo as Satan in last year's Winter's Tale. Criticwatch is also back after a rather slow 2014 on the article front but just a couple of months off since announcing last year's quote whores of the year and offering another retrospective on why Peter Travers and Pete Hammond should not be read, heard or seen in any capacity. Especially when they are using their words. More on them at another time. This week though we are on alert about this week's ads for Focus which once again sees the same ol' whores up to their same 'ol tricks." (more)

SHORT STUFF: THE 2014 OSCAR-NOMINATED LIVE-ACTION SHORTS
by Jay Seaver
"Does it ever cross your mind while watching the Oscars, right about the time that the nominees for the short films are rattled off, just how strange it is that the supposed five best movies under forty minutes come from a wide tame of countries, cultures, and languages, while the supposed five to ten best movies that run more than an hour are all English-language pictures from the United States or the United Kingdom. Why, there's a special category so that films from other countries can get some notice!" (more)
SHORT STUFF: THE 2014 OSCAR-NOMINATED ANIMATED SHORTS
by Jay Seaver
"The definition of "short film" is broader than some might imagine, and the length of the various programs of short films nominated for the Academy Awards this year demonstrates this: As usual, the documentaries were all a half hour to forty minutes long, requiring they be split into two programs in most theaters; the live-action shorts make for a two-hour block... And all five animated shorts together run 47 minutes." (more)

SHORT STUFF: THE 2014 OSCAR-NOMINATED DOCUMENTARY SHORTS
by Jay Seaver
"It's a rare year that the shorts categories at the Oscars, especially the documentaries, are less than very strong: There are a lot of filmmakers working at forty minutes or less, and while it's far from easy, the sheer volume means that taking five from the top end is going to yield some good movies, and the nominees from 2014 are no exception."
