On Casablanca, Solo Moviegoing, and Time Travel

Last night I made my way to the cinema to see a special TCM screening of CASABLANCA in honor of its 70th anniversary.

Ditty’s Favorite Movies of 2011

It's that time of year! Once again, I'll point out that these are not necessarily the movies that I'd say were the critical best, but they're the movies that I enjoyed the most.  Also, the order is roughly from favorite to most favorite, but it tends to vary pretty widely with my mood.

Ditty’s Favorite Movies of 2010

As is tradition, here's my year-end list of my favorite movies from 2010. INCEPTION Writer/Director: Christopher Nolan While this film left a lot of people amazed but feeling cold, I think a compelling case could be made that this is really an epic love story wrapped up in an incredibly ambitious storytelling device that sometimes … Continue reading Ditty’s Favorite Movies of 2010

The Inaugural Episode of the No-Name Movie Podcast

Matt and I argue about movies a lot. After doing our little debate a while back about THE BICYCLE THIEF, we got to thinking that maybe a podcast would be a good forum for that sort of thing, too.  And so, we figured, why not give it a shot? So we have. Here's what we … Continue reading The Inaugural Episode of the No-Name Movie Podcast
