Easter Box Office - What did you see?

"I saw Amazing Grace. Starts at thrilling and just keeps going from there." -Ken S

"Little . Amusing with a charming cast. Although I think I would have liked a movie just about Issa Rae better." - Adri

"I saw High Life. I had to fight to stay awake. What a load of nothing." - Suzanne

February Wraps. What's Coming in March?

February may be the shortest month of the year but due to Oscar night, it's the longest for us. If you don't visit the site regularly in the Off-Oscar season I urge you to reconsider. We have a lot of fun with a much rangier selection of movies from March thru November. I can't be the only one who is worn out by the Big Ten. Nevertheless, I don't mean to gripe about the Oscars. That's a knee jerk response born from fatigue. In a month or two (or maybe even a week's time) we'll miss his shiny golden ass. Oh, you know we will!

Some highlights of posting this month in case you missed them.

  • James and Anne vs. The World it's weird to look at this now that we've seen them do their thang. Or now that we've seen Anne try to do her thing while James stood there.
  • The Oscar Short Films Michael wrote up all 15 shorts. These posts had staying power as more of you checked out the nominees. I think the added exposure of these categories over the past few years (thanks to YouTube and iTunes) is one of the best Oscar developments.
  • X-Men First Class the mutant team's superhold on my childhood
  • Interviews! We gabbed with nominated craftsmen from The King's Speech and True Grit as well as the Oscar winning editors of The Social Network.
  • Bright Star. Love's Cool Breeze Kurtis on a swoony underappreciated gift from 2009
  • 30 Seconds to Summer it was fun to step away from the prestige films and move over to the boom boom whiz bang of coming blockbusters. They're just around the corner.
  • My First (Three) Deans JA finally drank the James Dean Kool-aid. 
  • And finally a round of applause for TFE's contributors. The Podcast has been an incepted dream BRAAAAHHHHHHHM with Nick, Katey and Joe. Our Oscar Podcast wrap up comes this Sunday. And I always enjoy Robert's Distant Relatives , Andreas new Mix Tape and Alexa's Curios because it's the only times I get to be surprised by what shows up on the site. Well done.


We'll wrap up Oscar (Podcast!) and the Film Bitch Awards this week.

Then... A NEW FILM YEAR. I've designated March as Reader Appreciation Month. There will also be a Tennessee Williams Centennial "Stellllllaaaaaaaaaaaa", dispatches from New Directors/New Films,  the return of Hit Me With Your Best Shot, and more. Please stick around. There's more to life than Oscar.

P.S. I'm suddenly violently ill. At least the flu politely waited for Oscar night to pass. Thank you, flu!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot! My favourite!

Catherine Deneuve!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now I want to watch Donkey Skin again...

I'm almost ashamed to admit this, I'm one of the few who liked James Franco hosting *hides behind computer*

Get well soon! The awards season is tiring for us filmaholics too. :)

I'm so excited for Jane Eyre I can hardly sit still. I do not have the patience of a good Victorian young lady.

Feel better, Nat! The flu is the worst but a good excuse to glue yourself to the couch and watch movies, so there's that!

I'm glad oscar season is over and now we can focus more on films.

March 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAlex BBats

Catherine Deneuve doing the saturday night fever dance with Gérard Depardieu in Potiche is enough to make me want to watch this! :)

Damn that Jane Eyre poster is good. It's been out for months but I still get excited when I see it.

Will definitely be sticking around. I was only a casual fan of your blog before last fall but now that I loved going through the whole award season with everyone here, I feel like I've been missing so much not having done it before.

And missing stuff at The Film Experience is like missing in-jokes and running gags on your favourite show. Not too crazy of a difference but there's special and awesome payoffs for loyal followers.

Sorta like Arrested Development. You can be Lucille.

(Can't wait for Hit Me With Your Best Shot to come back! And Jane Eyre! And the semi-promising slate of movies later this year!)

March 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMark

Absolutely can't wait for "Jane Eyre"!

Speaking of, Nat, are you and the usual suspects going to do the "We Can't Wait" countdown this year? That's one of my favorite things for the last few years. It's interesting to read about who is anticipating what, and frankly, some of the write-ups get me even more excited than I was before!

March 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLiz N.

So begins the long wait until April 1 predictions!

Feel better Nat, and have a good March.

March 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSawyer

Thanks for your brilliant work during this awards season! Looking forward to March and all the rest of..time.
Tennessee Williams. Yes!!
