    It's the same show as Film 2013/Film 2012...
    Nah those shows had films from ages past

    I like it anyway seems to give fair reviews, but honestly I just check up on IMDB or Rotten Tomatoes for forthcoming flicks.

    There seems to be a lot of pre-hype for Steve Carell in Fox Catcher. Anyone heard anything?

    And should they not be? It is a British organization. The Oscars are far too Hollywood for that matter.

    So I just watched Like Stars on Earth

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0986264/?ref_=nv_sr_1

    It is an Indian film about a boy who has dyslexia and is shunned by everyone, labelled as stupid and lazy, until one art teacher realizes it and sets out to help him. The little kids acting is amazing, the story is so beautiful I cried at parts. Would urge people to watch it!

    Does anyone else wonder why there are mistakes in some films? Do the directors leave them in there on purpose, or are they genuine accidents?

    Interesting question. I love those youtube videos of movie errors.

    I think they are mostly just accidents. There might be easter eggs here and there, but the majority is probably just oversight. And I think even if noticed they are left in there because well you can't shoot every scene again just because some minor continuity error.

    I am going to a special screening of Black Angel on Friday. For those who don't know it is the short film which was played before Empire Strikes Back in 1980 and was thought to have been lost forever until it was recently rediscovered. There is a Q and A with the writer/director Roger Christian afterwards. Christian was Art director for the original Star Wars films and Alien and has also written/directed several short and feature length films including The Sender and Nostradamus.

    He also directed Battlefield Earth which is considered one of the worst films ever made, but apart from that he has had nothing but praise.

    I have a couple of questions in mind but was wondering if anyone could think of any interesting questions I could ask him?

    Chinatown's excellent. Certainly in my top 10 or 20.

    I'll have to watch 20 Feet from Stardom, but I'm finding it very hard to believe that The Act of Killing wasn't the best documentary (and probably the best film) released this year.

    Catching up on the Oscars results and happenings from last night (no awards for American Hustle which is a result!!) and see the headline that Alain Resnais has died. 91 years but still RIP. Only seen a couple of his films but Hiroshima, mon amour is an absolute gem.

    I managed to correctly guess most of the Oscar's results with ever seeing any of the films nominated :P
