While January is always a slow month for film releases I’ve decided it is time to crank Cinema Autopsy up again for another year. In 2010 I’ll be aiming to post two film reviews a week; one on the weekend and one mid-week.
Facebook and Twitter
I do see more films than I write full reviews about so I often post micro reviews and updates on both Cinema Autopsy‘s Facebook page and Twitter account. Both Facebook and Twitter are also great ways to get in touch with me.
I’ll be back on Triple R (3RRR 102.7) next Wednesday 13 January 2010 at 8:15am to chat to the Summer Breakfasters about It’s Complicated. I’m also hoping to get some more Graveyard Shifts on Triple R this year to play my collection of film music throughout the dead of the night!
I resume co-hosting The Casting Couch on JOY 94.9 next Saturday 16 January 2010 at 5:00pm for a new season of weekly film reviews, interviews and conversation. The Casting Couch also has its own Facebook page.
The On Air page is regularly updated with details about what is coming up on The Casting Couch plus you can find links to the playlists from when I’ve selected the music and our podcasts.
Both Triple R and JOY can be streamed live via their respective websites but please note that all times are Melbourne, Australia daylight savings time (UTC/GMT +11).
Page to Picture: The Road
On Tuesday January 26 2010 at 3.30pm (public holiday) I will be moderating a panel discussion about John Hillcoat’s film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. A pre-release screening of The Road will precede the discussion. The panel are a diverse and impressive bunch (see the Cinema Nova website for more details) so hopefully I’ll be able to hold my own!
Top Films of the 2000s
I am planning to do a list of my favourite films of the decade that has just passed but am holding off until I see a few specific 2009 films that are yet to be released in Australia. Hopefully that list will be posted by late February but in the meantime have a look at my Top Ten films from 2009 (released in Melbourne, Australia) if you haven’t done so already.
Here’s to 2010 being a great year in the cinema!
