10th Anniversary: A SERIOUS MAN

"I have never seen a film that mixes laugh-out-loud comedy so intimately with dead serious philosophical questioning. It packs so much into its short runtime. " - Dr strange

"This movie is one of my favorites - Michael Stuhlbarg the biggest reason, he's so heartbreakingly fantastically good in everything." -Rebecca

November. It's a Wrap

!!!!!!!!!!! How is their only one month of the year left? It's nearly time for our year in review festivities to begin. So many movies left to see. So much holiday interference. Etcetera. Nevertheless we must move on by looking back. Wait, what? Here are some highlights from the month that was.

Year in Review silliness w/ best of this & that (so specific!), SAG & GLOBE nods (exciting!), lots of interviews (transcribing now... fingers be tired), Team Experiences's favorite X-mas movies, anniversaries (Philadelphia, Gilbert Grape, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) and, of course, new releases (Aquaman, Mary Queen of Scots, Vox Lux, Destroyer) and Oscar build-up mania.

Since a few of you have been asking: the new season of 'Supporting Actress Smackdown' will begin in February with the 2018 shortlist which will include some but not all of these ladies, followed by the long delayed '72 showdown in March. Ok? Ok.

* Yes we will be adding "u" to all "favorites" in honor of Yorgos Lanthimos awesome new movie.

One moooonth moooore!

I did not expect Mary Poppins Returns to be the gag of the season but the tweets sure do make it sound that way. Part of me hopes that (A) it's as good as everyone says and (B) it swoops in to snatch every trophy we're currently splitting hairs predicting.

Are you still considering a Chicago retrospective at some point? I know you recently floated around the idea. Would love to read your thoughts on the movie and whether they’ve changed with time! I miss when everyone still loved Renee!

Nathaniel, you haven't covered the Honorary Oscars. Weren't you pleased with the winners or are you boycotting them (we all should) until they're the back to the Big Night?

I'm still delighted at Murtada's hate for "Green Book" on the podcast. It kept me entertained on a 1 hr+ bus ride home. Imagine that emoji with hearts for eyes and that was me listening to him.

Peggy Sue - it was not intentional. I couldn't convince any of my team to write up any of the winners and I got swamped.

Rebecca - you made my day with your kind comment. We promised we'd dive deeper into Green Book when more people have seen it, so stay tuned!
