Busy week as usual. Seven highlights, in case you missed them...
Alfre Woodard - we talked to the great actress about her favorite roles from 12 Years a Slave to Passion Fish
Stage Door catfights - Anne Marie finally made it to the classics in her Katharine Hepburn retrospective. This one is deeply pleasureable
LA Confidential - this "Best Shot" edition didn't have the turnout of Eternal Sunshine but it sure was interesting to see this movie again after all these years. Such stellar performances
Tom vs. Dickie - Jude and Matt were warring again in this Italian edition of "beauty vs. beast" in which both of them are both beauties and beasts. Have you voted yet?
Jai Courtney - the next big thing or the next shrug?
Women's History Month - profiles of great actresses as real life women
X-Men Days of Future Past - we yes no maybe so'ed the popular trailer
DON'T FORGET "Best Shot"
The next three films have been chosen -- legendary bad movie Can't Stop the Music (1980) is our April Fools Day selection so watch it this weekend and join us on Tuesday with YOUR Best Shot.
Later in the season we'll be hitting films from all decades and genres and reputations as we do. (You can see the complete list of previous titles by season or by decade) but the best way to enjoy the series is not by waiting for your favorites to show up but by participating each time and blowing your mind, taste and eyeballs wide open. Sad Side Note: I'm dying to do Ken Russell's The Devils (1971) for this series but it's still very hard to find on DVD. Argh. I don't understand why Criterion doesn't come to the rescue - thank god I saw it at the Walter Reade when I had the chance a few years back.
Our Annual April Foolish Predictions for the Oscar race won't be as early as usual since we're working on some behind the scenes coding. I'll be on a wee vacation as well from April 3rd through the 7th as well but the rest of the team may well pop in.
