2013 is already off to a great start but we take a moment from the present and looking ahead to the year that will be to reflect on the year that was. Dale (Digital Doodles), Colleen and I count down our favourite movies of 2012.
We start off the year on good footing with the January preview with a few days to spare before the first batch of movies however, we do so without the help of one of our co-hosts. Dale (Digital Doodles) and I discover that it’s easy to veer off track without Colleen’s help. When all is said and done, January is looking reasonably good.
We also need your help! Much like Andrew’s “Blindspotting” post (and Bob’s ongoing series) we’re looking for a bit of help with must see titles pre-1960. If you have a recommendation, please let us know in the comments or e-mail us.
Oh December. The time of year when we eath, drink, celebrate with family and friends and, of course, watch movies. Many many movies. This year’s line-up of holiday releases seems a little thinner than usual but it’s all about quality not quantity and Dale (Digital Doodles), Colleen look ahead to the movies that will close out 2012.
And it’s a wrap! The 12th instalment of the Whistler Film Festival came to a close on Sunday and though most of us exited Whistler on Sunday morning, Dale, Colleen and I are joined by Bill Harris (@soundjam69), our now regular festival co-host, who took in more movies than all of us combined, not to mentioned he stayed behind to take in the Sunday screenings. Was it a good year? Listen in to find out.

The crew reunites after festival crazyness to look ahead at the slim month of November and though it’s slim in number of releases, Dale (Digital Doodles), Colleen and I discover that there a couple of biggies on the horizon.
And there may or may not have been a fez invasion…
I wasn’t quite able to keep up the fervered pitch with which the first few dispatched from the festival emerged, too busy with movies and stuff, but we did manage to sneak in one final show. A sort of festival wrap complete with hastily scribbled top tens, this was recorded on the streets on Vancouver mere minutes after the closing gala of Holy Motors.
I’m joined by now podcast regular Bill Harris, new comer Richard Scheib and our friend Lisa to countdown our favourites of the fest along with a couple of stinkers.
In the shuffle of enjoying what is possibly the last VIFF at Empire Granville, we lost Zack Mosley but I caught up with him later for his best and worst of the fest which you can find tucked under the seats.
On today’s show, Bill Harris and Adrian Charlie join me for a recap of the first official day of the festival. We touch on award favorite Rust and Bone, Pablo Larrain’s No and the batshit crazy documentary The Ambassador.

It’s almost VIFF time in Vancouver but until the festival kicks off at the end of the month, we will be parttaking in at least a handful of offerings for September. This time around Dale (Digital Doodles), Colleen and I dig through the stack of releases to find a few not-so-hidden gems. Surprisingly, few titles appeal to all three of us this month.
Life and roller derby got in the way of a July preview but Dale (Digital Doodles), Colleen and I find found a bit of time to get together this past week to look ahead at the collection of movies that make up the August release schedule. There’s a moment of digression early on but we manage to get through the month with few other distractions and for TV lovers, we spend the last 40 minutes talking good, if not great, TV.
