|Do You Feel Lucky?|
As part of my benefit as co-host, all the choices for Movie of the Month in my Birthday Month of February were mine. The LAMB voted and "Tombstone" was the winner.
Journey into Espionage Territory
We began a year long discussion of all 24 EON James Bond Films in anticipation of the upcoming final Daniel Craig Bond film. These discussions go deep and sometimes the podcasts get a little long. If you are a James Bond Fan however, they are essential.
Bonus feature:I was invited to be a guest on the Exploding Helicopter Podcast totalk about "You Only Live Twice", with lots of chopperfireballs.
Podcast Highlight of the Year.
Oh Yeah,...Amanda and I started our own Podcast also. It's called "Catching Up", we are covering old series of TV programs that we missed or never finished on their original go round. Currently we are working through "Supernatural", you can find the podcast here. Please follow if you are interested.
As usual, my movie going is not limited to new releases. Whenever I get the chance, I want to see classic films on the big screen.
So here are a few I revisited this year.
A Double Feature that includes the annual Jaws visit in the summertime.
Another Irresistible Force
and then Again
Two From the Original Movie Blog Project
Classic Horror from the 1980s
All Day Marathon
TCM Film Festival
I enjoy a good documentary, but they are often screened on Television and fall outside of the purpose of the blog. This year however, I saw four documentary films in a movie theater and I am happy to recommend them all.
They can't all be great. Whenever you go to the movies, we all hope what we are going to see will be amazing. Sometimes however we are going to be disappointed. Here are five films that really let me down.
Two of these movies have been getting a lot of positive feedback from critics and other bloggers. "Us" was out loud laughable, I could not take it seriously. "The Lighthouse" I actively hated. Annoying and like watching through dirty cheese cloth.
Two of my friends were involved in movie related projects this year.
David Brook, one of the LAMBs we met up with was the editor on a terrific independent film that I would strongly urge you to search out.
My long time blogging Colleague Eric Friedman, who has a blog you all should enjoy reading, published a book this year and I was happy to review it.
You can order it on Amazon as a Kindle or paperback. Do so, you will enjoy.
Happy New Year Everyone.
