October 12th 2012. Pick Of The Day.

British heartbreak is oh so mannered, oh so cruel, and oh so bloody inconvenient, and my Pick Of The Day may just be the final word on that Trifecta of English romance personified.

October 10th 2012. Pick Of The Day.

Amongst the delights cinematic on the big screen this fine October day (which is a stretch) you may find King Vidor's American pioneer epic and early Technicolor classic NORTHWEST PASSAGE at MOMA, the little known and rarely screened silent gem THE ANCIENT LAW at BAM with live musical accompaniment by multimedia artist Thomas Koner, and a pair of 70's

October 7th 2012. Pick Of The Day

HARD choices today, as Nitehawk Cinema kicks the day's doings off with a noon screening of THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER, Film Forum presents silent comedy master Harold Lloyd in THE FRESHMAN, BAM sates our Hitchcock thirst with a 35mm unspooling of

October 5th 2012. Today's Pick.

Let's talk about the Megaflop, that narrow film niche of budgets gargantuan, productions troubled, and box office results DefCon 5 for the studios that produced them. And this is a love letter, mind you.

OCTOBER 2012! DRINKIN' AT THE MOVIES, 50 YEARS OF 007 & MOMA SAVES THE DAY!

Well we got the calendar up on time, 12:01 am October 1st, and it's complete and working like a charm. Now I'm late with the monthly overview blog. Whatevz. Hopefully by next month the entire game plan will run smoother than a brand new Porsche off the factory floor.

SEPTEMBER 2012 WEEK THREE! GIALLO BEBEH! CIAO!

SEPTEMBER 2012 WEEK ONE. THE FRENCH OLD WAVE, HOLLYWOOD GAGSTERS, GIALLO FEVER AND CONNERY; SHAKEN NOT STIRRED!

AUGUST 2012 WEEK THREE. GAUMONT STUDIOS AND THE FRENCH OLD WAVE. NOW GO AWAY BEFORE I TAUNT YOU A SECOND TIME.

So far, so good. The interactive calendar's been up for two weeks now and early reports indicate no one's been seriously hurt. Yet.

AUGUST 2012 WEEK ONE. KINDA. SORTA. HEY, WHAT'S THAT CALENDAR LOOKIN' THING ON THE RIGHT?

Well, it's a calendar is the answer. The one I've been trying to bring you, the adoring public, for a couple of years now, and for this I have Michael Davis, webmaster extraordinaire, to thank. I can now take what previously existed as a collection of notebook scribblings or iPhone calendar entries and make it a united resource that hopefully benefits all socially misfitted film lovers like myself. So hooray would be the appropriate response, fellow geeks! Let me hear ya!
