Film Friday Weekly Roundup – The Oscar Complaints Edition

Posted by Brandy Dean January 11, 2013 1 Comment 3751 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 […]

It’s been a busy week at Pretty Clever Films Headquarters thanks to TCM’s Summer Under the Stars. First we’re treated with Lon Chaney day and then Humphrey Bogart day. At night, I hear TIVO softly crying to himself in the other room. Even though I have roughly a gagillion movies to watch, I still took […]

You know guys… I can’t think of anything witty or pithy to say today. It’s been a long week and I really just want to go and boot around on my sweet new ride. Any suggestions on sweet biking spots in Toronto?  Before I tear out, ringing my bell all the way, I put together […]

Summer makes me nostalgic for the drive-in movie theater. Fortunately for me, Toronto’s got one. Unfortunately for me, I don’t have a Pretty Clever Car. If you’re lucky enough to have both a set of wheels and enough hipsters in your area to qualify for a retro-fun drive-in, then get in your pjs and get […]

People, it is hot! When it’s too hot to even go to the pool, you know it’s hot. There’s not room left in the condo building pool anyway… they’re crammed shoulder to shoulder in there, hovering with the water up to their necks like crocodiles. But a sizzling summer heat wave is perfect movie watching […]

Well here we are at the end of a very long week, at least for me. Lots of work and a very sick puppy got in the way of movie watching and blogging, but we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled programming next week. Stay tuned for a review of the wonderfully weird The Lost […]

In my continuing quest to pass as Canadian, I’m spending the last half of this week “out in it.” That’s right, as you are reading this and enjoying the best the interwebs has to offer, I’m in an unairconditioned lodge in the middle of the woods, boiling my own drinking water! I like a day […]

It’s a holiday weekend no matter which side of the fence you’re on. Happy Canada Day and/or Happy 4th of July, depending on where you are! Since I’m existentially straddling that fence, I’ve decided to celebrate both. Summer holiday weekends mean bbq, pool dates, fireworks and, of course, lots of movies! So kick back, soak […]

It’s rainy but it’s Friday! A rainy summer afternoon is designed for staying in with good coffee and great movies. Or really really bad movies… maybe it’s time to dive into the cheesy sci-fi flicks TCM has been airing in the “Drive-In Double Features” series? Whether you’re going high-brow or low-brow, pick a flick and […]
