It’s That Time Again…

Filed under: In the Cheap Seats — kdk @ 4:07 pm

And by “that time,” I mean August, a time when the weather’s hot, and the movies…not so much.

Things have been pretty strange in Film Critic Land this summer. Some weeks (most of them, in fact), we’ll have just one screening. Maybe two. Then suddenly we’ll be bombarded by five in one week. Then we’ll go back to one the next. (more…)

Feast or Famine

Filed under: In the Cheap Seats — kdk @ 4:18 pm

This summer, I’ve been finding it difficult to keep on top of blog postings—for a couple of very different reasons. You see, it’s been either feast or famine in the Cheap Seats lately. Either we have one rather uneventful screening during the week (which leaves me reluctant to write about my one uneventful screening—since, after all, it would make my glamorous life seem quite dull and monotonous) or we have a gazillion of them, and I’m left scrambling to get caught up (as I am right this very minute).

Comedy Showdown

Okay…let’s start with a quick overview of last week—since I missed last Friday’s post. (more…)

Slowly Building…

Filed under: In the Cheap Seats — kdk @ 10:49 am

This summer’s schedule is really starting to upset me. Seriously…what’s going on here? I realize that the studios are really hesitant to release summer movies on the same weekend as some other summer movie, but come on here—can we please have a few options? And can I please have another movie or two to help me fill my schedule? Thanks. (more…)

This week, I’m having a ROGO special: read one week, get one week free.

Since there wasn’t a whole lot going on last week (or this week, for that matter), I figured I’d hold off for one entry this week. That, and it was the holiday weekend, and I had stuff to do. Like shop. And eat. (more…)

One Crazy Night

Filed under: In the Cheap Seats — kdk @ 2:23 pm

This week’s screening schedule was exactly as this week’s title suggests. We had just one evening screening, and it was pretty much insane. (more…)

Those Lazy Days of Summer

Filed under: In the Cheap Seats — kdk @ 11:20 am

May seems to be a pretty sleepy month for movies. And by that, I don’t mean that the movies are boring. I just mean that there aren’t a lot of them. For instance, last week, two movies opened (in wide release, that is): Iron Man and Made of Honor. This week, it’s What Happens in Vegas and Speed Racer. Next week, it’s just Prince Caspian. The week after, it’s Indiana Jones. In other words, all kinds of big movies that no one wants to try to battle at the box office. So while each week brings an exciting new adventure for us critics, they’re few and far between. (more…)

Hurray for Summer!

Filed under: In the Cheap Seats — kdk @ 9:44 am

I know…I know…I didn’t post last week. I could give a big, detailed explanation as to why I neglected my Friday blog duties, but, really, the reason is pretty simple: I just ran out of time. If you would like, however, I could give you a list of the things that I did do last Friday. After all, it’s all still in my planner—even though it technically took place last month, and those pages should already have been removed from my planner. But, considering I just finally found the time to remove my March pages last week, they’ll probably be there for a while. (more…)

Rodent Drama

Filed under: In the Cheap Seats — kdk @ 6:04 pm

It’s been quite a week here in Rodent Land. Before you read on, if you haven’t already read Monday’s post, now’s the time to get caught up on the week’s drama. (more…)

Reporting for Duty

Filed under: In the Cheap Seats,Movies — kdk @ 2:10 pm

This morning, my colleague, Neil Miller of Film School Rejects, dubbed it “the Cold War of film journalism.” It’s a war that we film critics have been quietly fighting for years. But, over the weekend, in my city’s local paper, that war appears to have been officially declared. (more…)
