Each of the top eight races boasts a front-runner or two, but what about the other three or four nominees in each race? It’s both a frustrating change of pace and a welcome one. It makes predicting the Oscars more difficult, but it also makes pinpointing the season a bit more exciting, doesn’t it?

When you think of film and time-travel there are a lot of movies that come to mind: The Time Machine, Back to the Future, The Terminator and Primer to name a few. Rian Johnson (Brick and The Brothers Bloom) has decided to throw his hat in with the sub-genre and while I will not say that it redefines it, it definitely uses the ideas that have already been established by the films that came before it and adds a twist on it to create one of the most enjoyable science-fiction experiences you’ll see this year.

Fall is an interesting time at the box office. It’s a mix of summer leftovers and the beginnings of the award season hopefuls. It’s an ecclectic mix where you have family friendly fare alongside depressing dramas vying for Oscars. Even the term “Fall release” needed some clarification. We decided that
