What is a BYOB?

Bring Your Own Blog was a concept that 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.

Let’s see what conversations we can spark.

    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…

  6. Did Not says:

    After watching Nomadland, I have to say my interest in The Eternals is monumental.

    David, in this oddest of years how is studio spending for display ads this time?

  7. SideshowBill says:

    I wanna watch David watch The Snyder Cut.

    I’m excited for it but Dave’s relationship with Snyder’s movies is…contentious?

  8. John E says:

    Nomadland’s going to win, but I feel like it’s going to be one of those BP winners that fades from memory quickly, like The Artist.

"Ninety seconds. That’s how quickly Steven Soderbergh believes the Academy Awards will convince viewers that this year’s telecast is different. The concept for the show, which Soderbergh is producing with Stacey Sher and Jesse Collins, is to treat the telecast not like a TV show but a movie. And he’s convinced he’s got a doozy of an opening scene. “We’re going to announce our intention immediately,” says Soderbergh. “Right out of the gate, people are going to know: ‘We’ve got to put our seatbelt on.’”

Paul Schrader on Facebook: “AN OBSERVATION ABOUT FILM ECONOMICS. The clever post-nickelodeon decision to monetize motion pictures (squeezing large numbers of patrons in un-air-conditioned large rooms with (for a time) intermittent vaudeville acts worked like a charm for decades. Then came TV. Yet movies survived. Became larger scope, racier subject matter, exploitation pix, women's pix, prestige pix, horror pix, genre pix, realistic pix. bigger in scope, racier in subject matter, newsreels. serious dramas, art films, European films—and air conditioned cinemas. But now comes Phase Three: BOOM! The growing desire of audiences to see film entertainment in theater like home entertainment at great discount, a transition 14 months in the training, but, more importantly, a shift away from the standalone 2 hr ‘important’ drama inspired by literature to the ongoing episodic dramas inspired by crime series (true or otherwise), telenovelas, expanded documentary and biographic sagas, stripping storytelling of its ability to compose concise stories which land like a punch in the face.”
