I think Emily Blunt is the most versatile actress in Hollywood. There is literally nothing she cannot do and do well. Drama, comedy, period pieces, she’s the best female action star since Sigourney Weaver, and on top of all of it she can sing and dance. I have never seen Blunt turn in a bad performance, even if the movie she was in didn’t entirely click. That skill set is going to allow her to break through that idiotic wall that exists for actresses between 40-60. Even the best actresses usually have an area of weakness. For example, as superb as she is, no one is going to buy Meryl Streep in an action film. I use Streep as an example, because it was Blunt’s role as her acerbic assistant in The Devil Wears Prada that first got her wide notice, and you CAN stick Blunt in action/science fiction films like Sicario, Looper, and the underrated Edge of Tomorrow and she will blow you away in either setting. Turning only 34 this week, Blunt has a long career ahead of her making what I can only imagine will be one of the most diverse filmographies in movie history.

We are eight days from the announcement of the 5th recipient of the KT Reader’s Award for FIlm of the Year. Rogue One is still atop the poll, but it’s comfortable lead has turned into a five-film scrap as Deadpool had a big surge this week and moved into third place behind the Star Wars spinoff and La La Land. The Jungle Book and Captain America: Civil War are tied behind them to round out the top five. Hidden Figures became the 11th different film to receive a vote for Best Picture in this wildly deep year for films, leaving only four nominees without at least one vote. This is going to come down to the wire. Deadpool’s surge completely changed lead margins for Rogue One, and we’ll see if the leader from the beginning, can hold on for one more weak or if last-minute voting will see another film take the prize. This is going to be the last update. Saturday, February 25th will see the announcement of the Community’s pick, and next week will also bring the site’s annual Oscar therapy alternative: The Renaissance Film Awards.

If you’ve spent any time on YouTube at all, you know people are desperate for subscribers. The last 10-30 seconds of almost any YouTube video are a needy cry for help from whatever channel you’re watching, but if you’re a movie fan, and you want consistently awesome and inventive lists, you need to subscribe to CineFix. They turn out random Top….Whatever lists on a regular basis and they’ve come up with some great ones. This particular one highlights the best character introductions; the first time you see a character onscreen and know they will dominate the film and fill your mind with catchphrases for years to come. I liked this idea so much, I will not actually watch their video until after I publish this post because I made my own top 10 list below based off the same idea. So if they copy my ideas, it’s certainly not my fault. Continue reading The 10 Best Character Entrances of All-Time
Well, halfway into KT’s 5th Annual Poll for Film of the Year and Rogue One’s comfortable early lead has turned into a four-way race for the top spot. Rogue One is still in the lead, but only just, holding off La La Land by a few percentage points, and Captain America: Civil War and Disney’s The Jungle Book aren’t far behind. In all, 10 of the 15 nominees have received Best Picture votes showing what kind of year 2016 was at the movies. As more people see La La Land, will it be able to eclipse the Star Wars spin-off or will one of Disney’s OTHER huge films from last year come racing to the front of the pack? If you haven’t yet, VOTE! You can find the poll on the Killing Time homepage at https://justkillingti.me or by clicking here. This is the reader’s choice: make your voices heard!
While the Patriots may have won the most epic Super Bowl of all-time, movie fans watch the Super Bowl as much for bite-sized new trailers as the action on the field. Last year’s Super Bowl gave us one of the best trailers of the year with a full-length Jungle Book trailer. This year gave us Super Bowl sized trailers for Logan, Beauty and the Beast, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, The Fate of the Furious, Transformers: The Last Night, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and more. Plus, if you had any doubt Stranger Things is Netflix’s most successful series yet, the streaming giant took out a Super Bowl ad for the show’s second season. Check out them all out below!
