Thoughts from your host…


Nineteen-for-Twenty-Four; how’d your Oscar ballot turn out?

Part of me would love to post pics and gifs of what went down at last night’s ceremony, but all the same, I feel like Oscars is all we’ve talked about for two months now. If I’m a betting man, y’all also have at least two weeks of think pieces to look forward to on what Oscar got wrong by choosing BIRDMAN. So if it’s all the same, I’m going to press forward.

I decided to call an old friend this week and it was just like old times. Even though the film up for discussion might not have been as meaty as some of the ones we’ve talked about in the past, it was still a subject that brought up some interesting points of discussion – especially when seen through English eyes.

So while you get into your working week, while you close the book on 2014 at the movies once and for all, and while you sift through angry rants about how Linklater was robbed, throw on the headphones and enjoy a reunion of The Film Locker team
