LaLa Land

Herald-Banner movie critic Alice Reese predicts the musical "La La Land" will win the Oscar for Best Picture at the annual Academy Awards event Sunday night.

  Make no bones about it: when film reviewer and critic Alice Reese doesn't care for your movie, she'll say so. This week's Picks puts Alice at odds with independent film, "Force Majeure."

Praise this week goes to Jake Gyllenhaal in "Nightcrawler," a show about a shutterbug with a stomach for shocking scenes.

Alice also advises we check out, "Birdman," whose cast she can only compliment. Actors include Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, Edward Norton, Jr., and Zach Galafianakis.
