Film Friday | Weekly Roundup

Pretty Clever Film Gal is still struggling with the plague but crawling along the road to recovery. Thankfully, there was much to entertain and divert this week, what with the return of Bobby O. to TCM and the silent film bonanza sparked by Hugo and The Artists. It feels like a fine time to care about silent movies and old things. I’ll reserve any cynicism about off-cycle nostalgia rearing its head in troubled economic times (Squirrel Nut Zippers, anyone) and just bask in the glow. As I was (mostly) upright this week, the Film Friday Weekly Roundup is restored to its former glory, and all is right. Happy reading and happy viewing!

Film Friday | Weekly Roundup

You know guys… I can’t think of anything witty or pithy to say today. It’s been a long week and I really just want to go and boot around on my sweet new ride. Any suggestions on sweet biking spots in Toronto?  Before I tear out, ringing my bell all the way, I put together some recommendations of the latest and greatest from the dear interwebs. Check ’em out and happy viewing! Read the rest of this entry

Film Friday | Weekly Roundup

Good news! Ed Hindson, president of the World Prophetic Ministry, officially assures us Saturday is definitely NOT the end of time. But just in case, I’m spending my last days reading about movies on the interwebs. It’s on my bucket list. If you have some time to kill until the rapture check out:

  • Thanks to the Classic Movies of 1939 Blogathon and Grand Old Movies, I remembered that this movie exists and I must see it. Like soon. Read GOM’s review of The Return of Doctor X, Bogey’s sojourn into the horror genre.
  • Smart and insightful Silent Volume attended the Mary Pickford event at TIFF as well. Read his take on the lecture and “The New York Hat.”
  • SoVirtuallyYours gets some love from Bobby O.? Color me jealous. Really, really jealous.
  • I finally saw Bringing Up Baby this week. Roger Ebert provides a succinct brief on the critical and commercial failure of the movie at it’s release.
  • Lars Von Trier gets a lot of attention at Cannes. Makes Kirsten Dunst want to crawl in a hole and die.
  • I like movie viewing girls, I like 12 Angry Men, and I like lists. It’s kismet!
