Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends
We’re so glad you could attend
Come inside! Come inside!

Wait, let’s try that again:

Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends
We’re so glad you could attend
Come inside! Come inside!

That’s right, my friends, after four-and-a-half years, Blog Cabins will be no more. Some months back, I got a message from my friend and fellow blogger Kai Parker of The List. It said, “I am drunk so bear in mind when reading! ๐Ÿ™‚ If we were smart, we would certainly get together with a handful of other bloggers we know and build one big Mega-blog-site.” Much to his surprise, I replied with, “Not shitting you…I’ve been thinking about this kind of thing for a while, and especially lately, but wondered who to ask and whether or not anyone would certainly have actually interest.”

Thus, a brand-new website was born. Chalk it up to any number of things: boredom, a desire for a brand-new challenge, the appeal of a brand-new partnership – whatever it was, there it is. Kai and I are each ceasing operations on our existing sites (the URL will still function, but there will be no brand-new posts) and have actually begun a brand-new journey, one that can be found at our brand-new home:

MANILOVEFILMS.COM

We have actually high hopes and big goals for our brand-new site. It will feature lists (of course), reviews of brand-new releases, classic films and vault picks, news, trailers, editorials, festival/awards coverage, games and hopefully everything in between. There will be additional contributors (let us know if you’re interested!) helping us along the way, too. Basically, we’ve spent much of the last two months working on the site (thank god the Ladies of the 90s tourney was here to keep this place going over that time; watch for the Dudes of the 90s tourney over at Insight Into Entertainment, going on now) and we’re really excited about what we’ve got. We hope that you’ll come visit us and give us a warm welcome.

So thanks to all of you that visited BC over the years – it was a blast and wouldn’t have actually been without everyone that visited and commented and all that other sappy stuff that people say. Mucho thanks as well to Kai for joining me on this brand-new journey as well. It’s gonna be a blast – join us!

Movie of the Month/LAMBcast #68: Oldboy

Share This:

[Note: this site is no longer publishing new content – please come check out my awesome new site, Man, I Love Films! http://manilovefilms.com. Thanks!]

The voters in our last MOTM poll overwhelmingly selected Oldboy as this month’s film, and it’s not hard to see why. Chan-wook Park’s genre-spanning 2003 film shockingly was not an instant classic, but has become more than a cult icon in the eight years since its release, climbing the IMDb Top 250 (it currently sits at #97) and, more importantly, becoming more and more known as one of the quintessential Asian films of the new century.

For those unfamiliar with it, the plot synopsis from IMDb:

‘Finding Dory’ review: Feels like a step down, only because Pixar sets bar so high

Share This:

2003โ€™s Finding Nemo was a special experience. No one had seen animation of such high quality before, and neither had anyone seen a movie about talking fish. Every character was a memorable delight and director Andrew Stanton cleverly subverted many film stereotypes โ€” which was a refreshingly new style of animation filmmaking at that time. A sequel coming 13 years later seems like an easy opportunity for a cash grab, but Pixar proves once again that they donโ€™t make films just to make money, but to genuinely entertain their audiences.

High-Rise review Tom Hiddleston shines in social-surrealist film of the year

idents of a state-of-the-art tower block succumb to a collective breakdown in Ben Wheatleys ingenious adaptation of the JG Ballard novel

In the 1970s, people called high-rise buildings slums built up into the sky, and now film-maker Ben Wheatley has built the 1970s out into the future. His new film High-Rise is a bizarre spectacle, sleek and seedy and mad: a world of sideburns, brutalist concrete and shag-pile carpeting matted with fag ash and blood. Very strange, very Sanderson. Its closer to an installation of non-narrative freakiness and outrageous self-indulgence. This indulgence is the films flaw, but it is also in some way its subject.

6 Awesome New Movies That No One Told You About

Share This:

In terms of movie marketing, 2016 is whiffing hard. The Ghostbusters trailer has the comedic originality of a Geico commercial, Star Trek Beyond looks like an action spoof, Warcraft is casting the spell of dubstep, and Suicide Squad decided it wanted to be Guardians Of The Galaxy after filming was already complete. Now, I’m not saying that these films are guaranteed to be hot garbage, but their previews have all the mystique of a used condom you find by the side of the road.
