Well, the Golden Globes were tonight.   That’s right, it was the night in which the Hollywood Foreign Press bestowed upon the stars of television and film a bunch of shiny awards that are a little more fun and less serious than the Academy Awards.  And it was actually quite a memorable ceremony for once—from Jodie Foster giving a bracingly candid and charming acceptance speech for...

ZERO DARK THIRTY
After weeks of debate, the American public can now see Zero Dark Thirty, and  it turns out they wanted to. The Best picture nominee ended up taking the weekend, fending off a terrible looking comedy and Gangster Squad.

Though the award itself is not as important as the Oscar (in the scheme of things), when the Directors Guild of America puts out their nominations, it's a bellwether for the nominations (which will be coming  January 10), and now we have a pretty clear view of the field.

TOPS List image
This has been a huge pivot point for movies in how they're made and distributed. 2012 was the year where the film industry turned its back on 35 millimeter film (which has been the standard for well over a century), with digital projection no longer just an option but the standard. At the same time a filmmaker like Paul Thomas Anderson shot a movie on 70mm - a format that hadn't been used...

That's because it's usually considered a dead spot, or dumping ground for bad movies. To wit, last year saw no new wide releases, while in 2010 the only film opening wide was The Warrior's Way. Remember that...

With a five day opening for the new pictures, and with a holiday weekend  for the rest, it seems like Thanksgiving in America (at least this year) meant going to the movies.
