With the release of Cosmopolis in US markets, a film I have no idea how I’ll respond to but am eagerly awaiting being able to see it eventually, I thought it best to ask you all what you liked most from Cronenberg’s filmography. So vote in the poll below, and make it snappy like, because Cronenberg probably doesn’t care what you think.
So this week the magazine Sight & Sound posted the results of their poll which involved 846 critics chiming in on what they believe the be the greatest films of all time. I’ve already spoken on how I feel lists have their value in the realm of film criticism, and I can say that while I can’t disagree with the list posted (I’ve only seen half of the top ten currently) but it is interesting that the “newest” film on the list is from 1968, more than four decades ago. The idea that in more than forty years noone in cinema has made a film worthy of being discussed alongside Hitchcock and Welles is absurd.
So before we go asking which films deserve to enter in the discussion one must make way for it. So my current question to you all is: which film in the top ten list would you say shouldn’t be in the list?

With the release of The Dark Knight Rises this weekend, and me being ridiculously busy all week, here’s a poll for y’all to tell me what you think about all the fan fare that’s coming attached to franchises.
While I love movies and I can’t wait to see this movie, the amount of noise I’m seeing on the internet, and hate I hear when it comes to reactions to tempered and flat out negative reviews of the film, it just reminds how much importance people can place on things they love.
So vote in the poll below and tell me which franchise has the most vile fans online?
As stated in yesterday’s succint addition to the site… I’m off for the weekend, but at the same time I’m trying to keep this thing going while I’m not here. So in queue with the release of what seems to be the most interesting film of the weekend at the cinema — that isn’t Pixar — I want to know (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World) what your favourite end of the world movie is?
Also I left the options few to allow for possibly a more interesting result and about people who have to travel in pairs in the world as it is after it’s already ended as opposed to having to survive the apocalypse itself.
