Bring Your Own Blog

What is a BYOB?

Bring Your Own Blog was a concept that essentially allowed regulars on Movie City News to communicate with one another about whatever was going on in the movie universe, free of an active moderator.

With the new site design, regulars said they felt left out. So we created this space. And now, we will see if they use it or not.

    Hmmm, where everybody at? Probably getting used to navigating the new site.

  2. Ellen says:

    You would never in a million years have posted that Trump picture featuring Obama

  3. David Poland says:

    You are correct, Ellen. Obama was not a pig. But if it offends you, my apologies. I will take that into consideration when posting BYOB images in future.

  4. Ben Kabak says:

    Trump Derangement Syndrome is real. He’s living in your head.

  5. cadavra says:

    Right, because it’s not like the wingers are obsessed 24/7/365 by Clinton, Obama, Hillary, AOC, Pelosi and Biden.

    Oh, wait a minute…

"There is, of course, an eerie prescience to She Dies Tomorrow, not just in its depiction of a pandemic (however absurd this particular one may be) but also in its bleak, spellbinding solitude; an existential plague, it turns out, is almost as effective as our current, real-life one in alienating us from each other."

The Ross Brothers: "There’s not one film of Altman’s that we don’t like, but Nashville is the holy grail. When we first saw it, we were so blown away that a film could feel so natural and lived in, and that influenced the way we thought about movies and made them from then on. On the surface it feels like just a bunch of interconnected moments, but a deeper reading shows that it’s about the fatality of America. Then there’s the editing, the use of sound, and the curious camera, which seems to be wandering, making us privy to every conversation it’s focused on. If we were ranking Altman films, this would be one through ten."

Max Richter: "Throughout my 20s and 30s I worked constantly. Weekends were nonexistent; I worked on multiple paid jobs to support my own creative projects. Now I have the luxury of taking this time off, I’m religious about protecting my weekends. Our lives are data-saturated.It’s psychologically demanding to live on screens 24/7. Sundays are for switching off. I treasure the time for recuperation."
