Ok folks, here we go. Part II of the 2012 Fall Movie Preview. Today we’ll break down all the major releases on tap for the month of October, and the first week of November!
As you might imagine, it’s a diverse bunch. There are some ahead that look intriguing, and some that might as well be announcing that they’re garbage already, LOL. Let’s have a look and see if we can’t sort out what’s what!!
With this weekend’s release of “The Expendables 2” and “ParaNorman”, the summer movie season is pretty much over. One weekend remains in August, and those movies wont have much room to run before school is back in session.
Nope, the season of the big blockbuster is behind us. It’s time to look ahead to the fall.
Not to despair, though, the fall brings sharp movies for the thinking movie fan. Movies which may have more selective box office appeal, but which may be some of the best movies all year.
So click through to take a look at the first part of this year’s fall preview. Today we’ll look at the last week of August, plus September, and then we’ll come back tomorrow with October and the first week of November. Together they’ll take us right up to the start of the Holiday movie season, and the November 9th release of Skyfall!
Just a quick note to let everyone know that this weekend will be dedicated to giving the site a little bit of a re-design as we head into year two. Giving the blog a bit of a new look every now and then will be important, I think, so that things never seem “Old”, and perhaps we can do a little better than I did when I was just starting out.
I’m engaging the services of our web designing friend Jaina Mistry, so hopefully things will go smoothly and wont look as hack as when I put them all together. :D
This is going to push my posts from this weekend off, though. Normally I get a lot of writing done during the time I’ll be working on this, so reviews of “Ted” and “Magic Mike” will be up Monday, and no MTESS this week. Tuesday we’ll be back on track with your regularly scheduled “Tossin’ It Out There” and we’ll move on from there!
If you’re swinging through over the weekend, please forgive the mess, I’m sure there will be times when things will be all discombobulated around here.
Bear with me, and we’ll be open again after renovation on Monday!
The final of my “For Your Consideration” posts for the 2012 Lammys. I want to thank all of you for bearing with me through this process, I realize that this isn’t necessarily the kind of content you’re out to read each day…
But I know that these posts have been well received within the Lamb, and hopefully I’ve picked up a vote or two along the way.
All this week, I’ve been laying out the positive attributes of the entire field of nominees in every category I’ve been nominated in.
It’s unfortunate today that I have to shift gears and bring you the painful truth that… aside from myself… none of the other nominees in this category are funny at all.
I don’t know what to say. Perhaps it’s the preponderance of pensive pundits that populate the Lamb pen… but whatever it is, this is a droll, humorless bunch. The nominators really $#%&ed this one up.
In the past week or so, my “Unfunniest Lamb Study Commission” has uncovered the shocking truth. The inside story of the rampant bribery, vote tampering, gerrymandering and fraud that was perpetuated in the “Funniest Lamb” category that – aside from myself – resulted in five painfully unfunny blogs being nominated.
