Tess McCrea takes a close look at the most anticipated movies nominated for the Best Picture prize at the prestigious ceremony, and lets us know what she thinks of each of the five films—as well as her predictions as to how the night will go.

At the Movies Review on Location - Moonlight

At The Movies (With Iconic Sounds) is starting a new segment called At The Movies Review On Location. In this episode, Remi and Brendon review the film Moonlight, directed by Barry Jenkins. Considered one of the most talked about films of this past year, the movie tackles race identity and sexuality, which is more than Richard Linklater's Boyhood was ever able to achieve. In addition, Remi reflects upon films of the year based on true stories, such as Sully, Snowden, and The Birth of a Nation.

Is It Time? - Therrien's Road with the Habs

It always happens sooner or later, every hockey season in Montreal. The panic has set in. As of February 8th, the Montreal Canadiens have lost four games in a row, the latest against the weakest team in the league, the Colorado Avalanche. I'm reluctant to ask the question, because Michel Therrien is the coach I have enjoyed watching the most in the last few years. His interviews and post-game scrums are always funny, win or lose—he is, in my eyes, very entertaining. However, ownership does not care about entertainment, they care about only one thing: a winning record. So, whether it's listening to sports radio or watching the last game's performance, I have to ask myself: is it time?
