How had i never seen... Enter the Dragon

"A action movie classic" - Jaragon

"Honestly, I saw Kentucky Fried Movie -- which ends with a long parody of this film -- about 5-10 years before I got around to seeing Enter the Dragon itself. I remember so much more about [the former]". -James

October. It's a Wrap!

1986 Flashback - A Room With a View and more 
Golden Globe Comedy - a curiously thin field
Steven Spielberg - Bridge of Spies and his 21st century work 
Oscar's Foreign Race - a five part trivia-happy series
HBO LGBT Sex & The City - Manuel's series hits the movie spinoffs
Q&A: Favorite Vamps & Cute Monsters - for Halloween 
Kate Winslet & the Oscars - a ranking

NYFF Wrap Up -Carol, The Assassin, The Lobster and more...
A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night - female directed horror is all the rage 

Coming in November... 
Interviews with Ridley Scott, Alicia Vikander, the screenwriter of Spotlight and more. We'll do TFE tributes to Gena Rowlands, Spike Lee, and Gena Rowlands as their Honorary Oscar ceremony approaches. Anne Marie will look at the career of Mira Nair in "Women's Pictures".

Can't wait to read TFE's material on Gena! Specially your own impressions, Nathaniel!

Hey I love Gena Rowlands and certainly wouldn't object to a double dose of tribute but did you mean there will also be a tribute to Debbie Reynolds as well as Gena and Spike as the honoraries approach?

Requests? Yes: updated Oscar predix!

Has 1990 Best Supporting Actress smackdown been done? If not can you cover that year when the series returns next year?

October 31, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBrezz

Can I plead for the return of the Small Screen MVP column? I know the blog is about to get crazy with Oscar stuff, but I really liked the idea of a place to talk about TV every week...
