Between offending Sarah Palin fans, the start of principal photography on House of Cards Season 2 and the supposed Great Purge of titles that hit this week, Netflix had an interesting week. Sarah Palin is not worth talking about — ever, and we know nothing about House of Cards yet. Streamaggedon, as it was called, is...

Sunday Film News Roundup — December 23rd, 2012

It’ll be a short one this week as there really isn’t that much going on that doesn’t involve movies that are open in Orlando yet. The thing that gave me the red ass this week was all of this NRA bullshit about movies and video games making people violent, and the ridiculous idea that...

Well, the first week of Cannes is over and if someone held a gun to your head and said “pick a frontrunner for the Palme d’Or”, you’d have to say it’s Jacques Audiard’s Rust & Bone, though it likely won’t win (going by the buzz, Marion Cotillard seems like a high choice for Best...

How to Follow Cannes Without Getting Sand in Your Crack

Okay, deep breath now. The movie news marathon that is 65th edition of the Festival de Cannes begins on Wednesday night with a screening of Wes Anderson’s highly anticipated Moonrise Kingdom (which opens here at the Enzian on 6/22). On Thursday morning it’s basically non-stop insanity until the following Sunday when the final films...

OW Oscarama, 2012 — I want a refund because you messed up the sound and color on that one movie: Best Film

OW Oscarama, 2012 — I want a refund because you messed up the sound and color on that one movie: Best Film

The Artist will win this award tomorrow night. Some people will be happy, some people will be livid. Most people will shrug because they haven’t seen it. I will probably shrug even though I have seen it. I liked it as a film. It was fun and whimsical and, most importantly for a gimmick film,...

OW Oscarama 2012 – What I really want to do is DO THIS!: Best Director

Uh… hey. It’s Saturday afternoon. And I’ll admit it, I completely forgot this was due. My  dog ate my homework. Then it was spat out, into a puddle. A puddle of slobber from the mouth of a poodle. A poodle puddle. What was I supposed to do?!?! BEST DIRECTOR: Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) Alexander...

Sunday Film News Roundup — February 12th, 2012

A bit late this Sunday. I had woot canaw this week and needless to say I’ve been acting like a sick, hurt little baby all week, so I wasn’t as attentive as I usually am when it came to new hounding this week. It’s a bit of a thin link collection, and the best...

So, we’ve been away from the Roundup for two weeks now and I’ve collected a whopping two stories over that time. Two. Honestly. Nothing about my scouting routine changed, there is just nothing going on lately except nonsense year end lists (except our year end list, which was awesome, of course), which are swiftly...

Sunday Film News Roundup — December 11th, 2011

Nothing happened this week. Seriously. There were some awful trailers for crap like What to Expect when You’re Expecting, and New Years Eve got sent through the critical buzzsaw as pretty much every who wasn’t involved in making it thought it would. Okay, the two things that happened this week were the Scott Rudin/David...
