Darkness falls

Posted by · 8:12 pm · August 18th, 2011

Just a programming note: Next week we begin weekly coverage of the 2011-2012 Oscar season. The latest Off the Carpet column hits Monday with updated predictions and proceeds weekly. Ditto Oscar Talk, which Anne and I will launch on Friday. The following week, both features will be off to the races as we move into the festival spread. Guy will launch The Long Shot post-Toronto on September 21 and Gerard will be close behind with the launch of Tech Support on September 29. By then, we’ll be very much in the midst of Oscar madness, so strap in.

    Yeah, I always enjoy the regular columns but Oscar Talk is a real highlight of awards season – across all sites.

    The design for the Tooth Fairy was rather interesting. Aside from that, the film’s a bore.

    It will be great to have Oscar Talk weekly again. Something I always miss in the Summer.

    Off-topic, a trailer for Carnage just dropped. I cannot seem to upload it though.

    I know that you will probably mention this next week, so don’t feel obliged to answer, but I just looked at “The Contenders” and saw The Warrior had a strong presence. Have you seen it? It looks a little by the numbers to me.
