The 300 Week 34: The Marx Brothers go to the opera and The Happytime Murders can simply go away
Why hi there there, rich dowagers, and welcome again to The 300, a recurring characteristic on my zany try to look at 300 films in theaters within the yr 2018. I’ll be seeing new releases, repertory screenings, hidden gems, and competition movies to expertise the huge world of cinema in all its glory. By having an open thoughts as a film-goer, I hope you see one thing right here you’ll wish to try.
As all the time, there are three guidelines for The 300:
- The film should be not less than 40 minutes lengthy, assembly the Academy of Movement Image Arts and Sciences’ definition of a characteristic movie.
- I have to watch the film at a movie show, screening room, or out of doors screening venue.
- Whereas I can watch films I’ve seen earlier than 2018, I can’t rely repeated viewings of the identical movie in 2018 a number of instances.
We’re closing out August fairly robust, and I’m on tempo to be 70 films from the purpose by the tip of the week. Although untimely, I’m fascinated by possibly doing one thing particular for the 300th movie. I suppose it relies on what time of yr I get there. I’ll go away that on the again burner for now. I would like to complete up this piece earlier than heading right into a morning press screening. (I miss when MoviePass was purposeful and my schedule extra versatile.)
Whereas I’m speaking concerning the future (this humidity is making me crazy), issues will decelerate for per week in mid-September, due to private plans, however will choose up once more as I begin overlaying the 2018 New York Movie Pageant. Count on a NYFF 56 preview in a couple of month.
And so, onward.
