@zmurko @Squirrel I was just coming here to say we should do Connery films as an extra alongside the regular selection as a tribute, so no need to change your votes, it's gonna happen.

And the winning genre for April is... chosen by @omarcomin71. So come nominate your films that deal with revenge, payback, retribution, whatever you want to call it. My pick is Ol

The winning film for February has been chosen... Our first western in over two years, @djw180 and @omarcomin71's selection of Once Upon a Time in the West.

Okay, I’d like to nominate ‘Atomic Blonde’.  It has everything I love in a movie.  Has action, mystery, revenge and of course Charlize Theron. 🙂

This trailer gives me chills.

Going off the wall with this suggestion. I’ve not seen it for a long time and was a bit of a box office catastrophe but I remember it being a fantastic looking film.

@omarcomin71with the genre and film double this month!

I've not seen this but I do know it's a super stylish, hyper-violent spy thriller.  Sounds good to me.

I've gone with my heart with a lot of these predictions as this is a lot less predicable as last year's awards.

@Conwanna do the same as last year, winner chooses a film for the loser to review?  You know you loved watching Rock Horror last year 😉

With the Oscars happening on the 25th of April it's time once again for the film club to honour the little gold, bald man.  We've already done best picture and best actor winning films, so this year I was going to spin for the remaining big categories,

Best director

Best actress

Best supporting actor

Best supporting actress

Best screenplay (both categories)

If anyone wants me to throw in any other Oscar category the post it here and I'll add it to the mix.  I'll spin for the winner on Friday, so you got a couple of days to let me know 🙂

The winning category for April's Oscar extravaganza is...

Now it's time to nominate any film that won the Oscar for Best Director.  The winner will be picked on Sunday.

I'll kick things off by nominating the most recent winner of the award, b*ng Joon-ho and his film Parasite, one of the best films I've ever seen.

 Parasite, never heard of it.

I was here wondering why I don't even touch the TV to watch anything anymore as the last vivid movie I can recall was 300 when my DVD Player was the $h!+. Reminiscing about the old days when I was happy just to come home turn the TV on & kick my feet up. Then I did a little TV Land Soul Searching only to find out Clint's 90, Pacino 77, De Niro is the same, Caddyshack was released months shy of 41 years ago & all the good tv channels have their own special subscription fee to watch shows I don't relate to.

Jesus! I guess the mystery is solved. Those old guys are probably kicking it at home with the grand kids or chasing tail at a retirement home or HOA retirement community, we sometimes forget that time moves on as actors & actresses rotate out of Hollywood & transition into other interests, while we are still there waiting for their next action pack movie to get released believing they are on a hiatus.

I'm glad you guys keep the Film Club going even though I am not searching through it often, but every now & again it guides me to a few movies within a genre I long forgot about or missed back when it released.

That's why I love finding new young directors and actors.  It makes films feel fresh and it's always exciting when they get recognition and wider appeal.  Promising Young Woman and Sound of Metal are both films by first timers and I'm so glad that they're getting a lot of awards nominations right now.
