Films in 2019: June

June seemed to fly by, but I still managed to watch about a month’s worth of movies, and it was a pretty interesting mix. As usual, I watched a lot of what TCM had to offer (including a few titles from their engaging two-month spotlight series on WWII movies), and I’m also getting more use…

Films in 2019: May

The month of May was filled with plenty of discoveries mixed in with a lot of re-watches. My local arthouse theater hosted film noir screenings every Wednesday in May, so of course, I had to go to every showing, including the first one for Gun Crazy with special guest Eddie Muller, the Czar of Noir…

My Experience at TCMFF 2019

About a month has passed since the 10th Annual TCM Classic Film Festival, but I’m still basking in the afterglow of attending for the first time. As I told Jennifer Dorian (general manager at TCM) at the closing night party, TCMFF really exceeded my expectations. Words can’t fully express how amazing my whole experience was…

Films in 2019: April

April was an amazing month of movies, to say the least. While I didn’t watch quite as many movies as I usually try to do within a month’s time, my experiences at the theater were nothing short of incredible, and that’s mostly due to the TCM Classic Film Festival! I had such a great time…

Films in 2019: March

March was a busy month for me, so I didn’t watch as many movies as I usually like to, though it was still a good amount. Between all the movie-watching, I’ve been planning out my trip to Hollywood for TCMFF (just about a week to go!). You can look at the films I’ve picked to…

My Picks for TCMFF 2019

Today marks two weeks until I’ll be in Hollywood for the TCM Classic Film Festival, the premier event for old movie lovers I’ve been dreaming of going to for years. In the past, the dates for TCMFF just didn’t work out for me between school and now work, but fortunately, the stars aligned in my…

Films in 2019: February

As usual, February was an Oscar-filled month, wherein I watched some movies playing during TCM’s 31 Days of Oscar program, as well as some movies nominated at this year’s Academy Awards. And that included rounding out the Best Foreign Language Film category, as I was able to see three of the remaining nominees I hadn’t…

The 91st Academy Awards: My Picks and Predictions

Happy Oscar Sunday! It’s been quite an awards season, with different movies taking the top prizes at the precursors, making it all more uncertain as to which movies will end up winning at Hollywood’s biggest show. As is my annual tradition on this blog, I’ll make predictions on which films will win the Academy Award…

Oscar’s Most-Nominated: Best Actress (Part II)

We’re exactly one week away from the 91st Academy Awards! Today I’m wrapping up my series of posts highlighting the actors and actresses that earned four or more Oscar nominations throughout their careers, concluding with the actresses that received six or more nods. And this last entry boasts a couple of the all-time Oscar records:…

Oscar’s Most-Nominated: Best Actress (Part I)

Just as I did this time last week with the actors, I’m now highlighting the actresses who received most or all of their Oscar nominations for a leading role. This list was even longer than their male counterpart, even after I divided into two sets again. So this post only showcases the actresses who received…
