Sometimes it's hard to tell if the buzz around an actor or actress exists simply among entertainment writers or has currency in the real world. And so, when Melissa McCarthy broke out in 2011 with "Bridesmaids," earning an Oscar nomination (among other accolades) it remained to be seen if that success would be a springboard to future hits. And indeed it was.

It was certainly one of the more eye-popping moments from any of the awards season films last year. In "Flight," a hungover, disheveled airline pilot, played by Denzel Washington, is suddenly forced to crash land his plane while saving as many people as he can. So, what does he do? He flies the damn thing upside down (a scientific reason why this is plausible is given in the movie, but we forget what it is now) and lo and behold, he's able to spin back around, and gracefully (as possible) touch down behind a church (symbolism or something). It was a pretty heart-stopping sequence, but it turns out, one actor thought it wasn't quite up to par.

While there have been many, many 2012 lists and recaps, the year isn't over until Roger Ebert weighs in with his favorites, and today he's done so, dropping his list of the best movies he saw in 2012. And as usual, it's a mix of more popular choices, with some love shown to smaller, foreign films that might not get the shine otherwise.

With Thanksgiving over and done with, we've arguably reached the mid-point of the awards season. Things will be kicking off with the Independent Spirit nominations arriving tomorrow, and the New York Film Critics Circle and National Board of Review following next week. And with Oscar ballots going out not long after, almost every film has been screened, with "Les Miserables" and "Zero Dark Thirty" making their debuts over the weekend to press and industry types, leaving "Django Unchained" the last major contender to be seen by critics. And many of the big movies, including "Silver Linings Playbook" and "Life Of Pi" most recently, have now been seen by audiences too.

For over five years now, the Soundworks Collective video series has illuminated the nuanced soundscapes of award-nominated (and other deserving) films, including “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World,” “War Horse,” and “Inception,” and now as we're reaching the apex of Oscar-hopeful-season, a new slate has dropped online.

Opening strong this past weekend, and as we just noted, now looking like a potential Oscar player, things are going very well for Paramount and "Flight," but there could be some turbulence ahead. As you know, Denzel Washington plays a booze-soaked pilot who manages the heroic feat of landing a doomed flight. However, one of the companies that's seen in his liquor cabinet is asking to be taken out of the movie.

Now that we're into November, things are really starting to get underway and we're about to see an onslaught of Oscar contenders. Last month had a couple of hopefuls with "Argo" and "The Sessions," but from the release of Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" this Friday, awards bait comes thick and fast, with virtually every week seeing at least one film heading into release.

His storied career brimming with underdog personalities faced with extreme spectacle, director Robert Zemeckis has seemingly found his fireworks this time in the recognizable face of one man: Denzel Washington. In his just-released drama, “Flight” -- which secured a fantastic opening this past weekend to the tune of $25 million -- the actor plays William “Whip” Whitaker, an alcoholic airline pilot responsible for expertly crash-landing a damaged aircraft mid-flight, and it is Zemeckis' choice of cinematic focus that marks his altered approach.
