Mamo #334: Twenty Fourteen

After a three-week food-and-blackout-fueled hiatus, Mamo returns! It’s the first week of 2014 which means, naturally, it’s time to close up shop on 2013 with our picks for the best films of the year. We also get in deep on the relative merits of Twelve Years a Slave and The Wolf of Wall Street, wax philosophical on whether films can ever truly be “numbered,” and give some thought to Her and the state of science fiction.

Hey Man, Nice Shot (2013)

NiceShot

Today, we begin wrapping up 2013 by returning to an annual tradition originally posted over at The Matinee. It occurred to me some time ago that when you think back on a film, sometimes you think about one solitary image. When you bring those images together, it turns into a neat little tapestry of the year on the whole.

The idea started back in 2010, and continued through 2011 and 2012.

Decide amongst yourselves what it means that I have been choosing more and more images as the years have gone on.

Cinecast Episode 273 – It’s TIFF 2012!

Thanks once again to Ryan McNeil of The Matinee for dropping back in for our huge TIFF recap (and almost spoiler-free!). Andrew sits in quiet solitude on the sofa, acting mainly as an audience member (admittedly, mostly fiddling with Pinterest and playing Tiger Woods Golf) with much amusement as Ryan and Kurt recap a large chunk of their TIFF experience. Sadly, due to the late hour of recording, there was no time left for The Watch List. We are happy, hoever to kick of the Fall Semester of homework assignments. The discussion gets pretty spirited where there is agreement and disagreement on many of the films screening at this years festival. Drop in again next week for a return to our usual programming: a lengthy discussion on PT Anderson’s The Master and responses to this first volley of homework assignments.

As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!
