Film Friday Weekly Roundup – The Oscar Complaints Edition

Posted by Brandy Dean January 11, 2013 1 Comment 6401 views

Yeah, yeah, yeah – Oscar nominations. I’m glad to see Beasts of the Southern Wild made the cut, but other than that… blah. How about every nominee in the Best Supporting Actor category has won an Oscar before? That just smacks of old, self-satisfied people congratulating themselves. And I can’t get behind any award system […]

Well now the holidays are over (boo!). Pretty Clever Film Gal transformed the yule tide season into one mega Bond-a-thon. In late November, I had never seen a single Bond movie. Now I only 5 titles plus Skyfall left.  As a matter of fact I holidayed so hard it’s almost a relief to get back […]

I made the somewhat arbitrary holiday season resolution to NOT watch A Christmas Story. Why? By my rough, back-of-the-envelope calculations I’ve seen this movie at least 28 times, but accounting for years with multiple viewings in one season, probably more like 34, maybe as many as 38. So I’ve watched A Christmas Story somewhere between […]

It’s beginning to look a lot like… Holiday movie time. Yep, time to dust off It’s a Wonderful Life, A Christmas Carol, A Christmas Story or whatever holiday movie floats your boat. (If you keep reading, you’ll get to Robert Osborne’s favs!) Some holiday movies really are just treacly rubbish and yet… no matter how […]

When I first grasped that the NHL Lockout was going to be a reality this season, a black wave of depression swept over me. What’s winter without hockey? Just a cold, gray lump of crud, that’s what. But as the lockout has dragged on, I’ve discovered I can watch a lot of movies in my […]

Now that the American’s have gorged themselves on turkey and are out in shops right now fighting over discounted televisions, it’s official – the holidays are upon us, people! Whether that statement fills you with dread or joy, it is time to start making your holiday wish list of movie goodies and leave it casually […]

The Film Experience tells us about when D.W. Griffith learned how to treat a lady. Faded Video Labels reviews The Seventh […]

What a totally awesome fun week I’ve had! First, I got a year younger and then it was Halloween. I got the amazing Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection Blu-ray and now I have something to play in the Blu-ray player that I got a month ago for this express purpose. I watched some seriously bad […]

It feels like it’s been a very long week, friends and neighbors. Judging by the sheer volume of awesome silent and classic film writing cranked out by the interwebs this week, I’m beginning to think someone might have actually slipped an extra day in there. Now, as we sail into the pre-Halloween weekend, I hope […]

It’s Friday? Again? Weeks go by pretty quickly these days. I suppose it makes sense that when days are shorter, days feel shorter. But even still… The good news is that my forced hiatus from hockey due to the lockout leaves ample time for Fall movie watching. And, let’s face it, it’s looking pretty good […]
