Best Movie Ever – Episode 7: The Trouble with Prequels

January 14, 2013

Apologies on top of apologies for the lack of activity around here, folks. Amazing how much free time you lose when you start a new job, huh? Add that to my first attempt at writing a book, and movie reviewing just doesn’t seem so imperative all of a sudden. With that being said, it shouldn’t be too long before I have my Best of 2012 list ready to roll and start reviewing new releases for the new year. So bear with me, gang, and thanks a mil for staying tuned. Alas, it’s just that time of year for me.

Until then, why not click that sweet banner up there and give a listen to the latest episode of Best Movie Ever? This week, Sean and I talk about our favorite movies that we own, the surprising disappeance of Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic Park, and somehow decide on what the best prequel ever is. Hope you enjoy and catch you on the flip side!

    what did you think of the golden globes?

      Thought they were good! SO much better than the Oscars is going to be. Happy with the winners (Waltz & Tarantino in particular), and holy hell, did Tina Fey and Amy Poehler bring the house down. If they could just do that every year, that’d be great.

      That much more worried about having to suffer through Seth McFarlane now.

    God yeah, Fey and Poehler especially were so inappropriate. I loved it. I also started to like the Globes much better than the Oscars. They’re so relaxed and much more about the performances, too.

    Almost can’t imagine that McFarlane will be worse than Billy Crystal or James Franco… not too excited about this year’s Oscars though either. Lame nominations.

      Good point, the last two (or three, rather) hosts were horrendous. As much as I can’t stand Family Guy, McFarlane can’t be worse. And you’re right, the whole mood is different with the Globes, so much less stuffy and snooty. Think I might actually attempt getting bombed for this year’s festivities.

    So you’re writing a book, heh? How’s that going for you? My second book will be out next week (well, up here in Quebec!). My first one was poetry, this one is fiction for teens. Two totally different experiences, as I imagine a screenplay is. 🙂 So hard to balance creativity and work, though… I really understand what you’re going through.

    Still enjoying the reviews, btw! Keep it up!

      Haha. It’s going alright, think I’m finally starting to find my rhythm. And congrats on your second book! That’s awesome! Is it in English by chance?

      And the reviews are starting back up next week, so will do and thanks for reading!

        Eh no, it’s in good old French, though I would certainly sell a lot more copies if it was in English! 😉 Anyway, it’s pretty girly, so… don’t think it’s up your alley hahaha

        Hahaha, well that’s too bad all the same, would have loved to give it a read. And give me some credit over here, you’re talking to a guy who’s got Jane Eyre on his shortlist of all-time favorite books!

Drop that knowledge!
