The ol’ link roundup – March 26-April 8
Programming change! I’m pleased to report that I’ve launched a new column at Film.com: My Shame List, in which I finally watch all the movies that I’m embarrassed not to have already seen. The first entry is “Schindler’s List” (yes, I’d never seen “Schindler’s List” until last Monday), and the inaugural column goes into more detail about how and why I chose these particular movies. Do enjoy, won’t you?
My Shame List makes its debut a week after the final installment of What’s the Big Deal?, which had run its course. I’d hit all the likely targets for the column and was starting to feel a little stagnant. Also, it was really labor-intensive, and I never felt like I had enough time to do it right. Should have been a bi-weekly column rather than weekly. Anyway, I did 99 of them and figured that was a good place to stop.
NEW MOVIE REVIEWS:
* * * * *
What’s the Big Deal?: “The Deer Hunter” (1978), about Vietnam and Russian roulette. (This is the last edition of this column, as explained above.)
My Shame List: “Schindler’s List” (1993).
Things the Avengers Theoretically Would Not Assemble For: An exhaustive list.
