Theme: My baby sister; Week: March 13-19/15

Mar 13-19-15
Smack in the middle of this coming movie week, March 16, is Lisa “the Japanese Wonder” MacCallum’s birthday. She’s not really Japanese, but no time for explanations. Let’s get down to bizness.

These are her top 3 favourite films from IMDb’s top 250 list, and I believe they’d at least be in her top ten favourites of all time. Which one do you think should be this week’s movie?

1. It’s a Wonderful Life (1946, #26)

2. Life Is Beautiful (1997, #29)

3. To Kill a Mockingbird (1962, #82)




Theme: Beware the Ides of March; Week: Mar 6-12/15

Mar 6-12-15

y the end of this movie week we will be just two days away from the dreaded Ides of March. Yes, that’s when Julius Caesar literally got stabbed in the back (where we get the expression?) by a good friend, uttered the words “Et tu Bruté?” and died. So sleep with one eye open for next week or two. Never know…

Each of this week’s movie nominations are not only from IMDb’s top 250 list, they also all have stories that center around a murder. Which one is your pick?

1. 12 Angry Men (1957, #6)

2. L.A. Confidential (1997, #97)

3. Fargo (1996, #156)


Theme: CARRazzies; Week: Feb 27-Mar 5/15

Razzies 2015

It’s finally here folks! Today Hollywood, yea the world, is celebrating the great movies of 2014. But what about the reeking pile of rancid celluloid that gets overlooked year after year? Why can’t terrible movies get their recognition?

Well this is your chance! It’s the CARRAZZIES 2015!*

Here’s how to vote: I pray to God that none of you have been subjected to this week’s nominees, so simply 1) read the plot description for each nominee below, 2) decide which one would be the most effective use of torture on you if held captive at Guantanamo Bay, and 3) give that bad boy a vote!

Carrazzies 2015



*There is an already established website that gives such awards. So I guess they DO get their recognition, but this is my version and it’s based on the IMDb bottom 100. And it’s a much better award, don’t you think?



Theme: 1960’s; Week: Feb 20-26/15

Feb 13-19-15

Last year several movies were voted on with Carl and Ellie from Up winning by a landslide. This time around I’m not sure who will get it. Which do you think should be this week’s movie/love story ?

1. Forrest and Jenny from Forrest Gump (1994, #13)

Theme: 90’s; Week: Feb 6-12/15

feb 6-12-14

As much as I love the movies and culture of the 70’s and 80’s, I have to admit that the 90’s was one incredible decade for movies. I think I have more favourites from this time than any other decade.

All three of this week’s nominees are on IMDb’s top 250 and I love all three of them. Which one do you think should be this week’s movie?

1. The Sixth Sense (1999, #164)

2. The Truman Show (1998, #236)

3. Jurassic Park (1993, #239)



Theme: Christopher Nolan; Week: Jan 30-Feb 5/15


If you’ve heard the name Christopher Nolan it is likely because of the Batman/Dark Knight trilogy he wrote and directed. But he’s also brought us the mega-hit Inception, the cerebral classic Memento, and 2014’s highest rated movie on IMDb, Interstellar. And to think, he’s only got ten movies under his director’s belt. PLUS, SEVEN of those ten are all on IMDb’s top 250 list! Looks like there’s more great ones to come. But here are three to choose from for this week’s movie:

1. Inception (2010, #14)

2. Interstellar (2014, #19)

3. The Prestige (2006, #52)
