February 2015 Blind Spot: Sunset Blvd. (1950)

As the Oscar ceremony is still fresh in my head, I thought it'd be interesting to see this iconic film for this month's Blindspot.

Oscars 2015 – Recap, Reflections on Best & Worst Moments

Guest Post: Sundance review of SLOW WEST

Special thanks to Iba from I Luv Cinema for her Sundance review! Ah, the western - on its surface, it would seem it is not to my favorite cinematic genre. But upon further examination, I must admit it has produced some of my all time favorite films (High Noon, Unforgiven, The Searchers, The Ox Bow …

The Oscars is just a week away, folks! Well, a week ago, as I was listening to 99.5 Classical MPR they were playing my favorite score from Titanic and I knew I had to make a post of it. For this post I'm focusing more on the instrumental themes instead of the songs, hence my exclusion …
