Thank you 2006, and good night

Posted By on Mon, Feb 26, 2007 at 1:47 PM

2006, the year in movies, has officially come to end.  Since this isn't an Oscar site like say or, I'm not going anywhere for three or four months.  I'll be right here talking about the difficult post-Oscar release schedule which will include more crap that's not worth your money or your time.  That said, since I released my 2006 Top 10 on New Year's Eve, I've seen a dozen or so films that have caused my Top 10 to change.  Assuming I can see "The Lives of Others" this weekend (it is scheduled to be released on Friday at Market Street), then I'll post a final 2006 Top 10 and close the books on the year once and for all.  I'm giving up on "Little Children."  I have no doubt that I would love the film, but it's not coming out here anytime soon.  It will be on DVD in April and I suppose I will see it then.  It will always remain one of the most curious release strategies ever.

I don't have any lingering Oscar thoughts after my play-by-play last night.  Scorsese won and I am pleased.

  • That Time of Year

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.

  • Industrial hemp pilot program coming soon to Arkansas

    One of the booths at this week's Ark-La-Tex Medical Cannabis Expo was hosted by the Arkansas Hemp Association, a trade group founded to promote and expand non-intoxicating industrial hemp as an agricultural crop in the state. AHA Vice President Jeremy Fisher said the first licenses to grow experimental plots of hemp in the state should be issued by the Arkansas State Plant Board next spring.
  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
