Last time around I looked at four of the contenders for Best Picture in this Sunday's Academy Awards (The Blind Side, Precious, District 9, and Avatar) and deemed only Precious worthy of serious contention (ahem). I was able to pair those films into groupings around racial morality plays and human-hatin' moral...

All proceeds will be going...

As we ring in the New Year it is a tradition to look back over the last 12 months and talk about the things we liked the best.

Being privileged enough in a small town to see the new film Avatar on its opening weekend at our hometown theatre, the Gem, I couldn’t resist writing a review of this amazing film.
