MusicalToni posted a topic in MAD ABOUT MUSICALS: THE HISTORY OF THE HOLLYWOOD MUSICALSComments on today's Podcast, Friday 6/15/18 Week 2 1940's Musicals. First, love the course and the Musicals. Today was the first time I was disappointed by something. The podcast was too long, almost 40 minutes; and very disjointed. Sorry to say but Dr. Edwards seemed unprepared or he forgot his notes. He was all over the place and off-topic several times. It started off fine but then went off on a tangent with Dr. Ament trying to bring it back on course. The last five minutes finally wrapped up well. Just my opinion. Anyone else? Note: Just to be clear, I had no problem with the content of the Podcast, i.e. the review of the facts we learned. My comments were only on the length of time and the slight disorganization of the presentation of topics. (My mind works like an outline, in order; I can't help it. Sorry friends.) Carry on. ; )
Hi everybody, Like many here, I've been following the #OscarsSoWhite controversy of the last couple of years with some interest. I've found the debate more interesting than most of the movies made by Hollywood today (I hope that nobody makes a Biopic on this, although I bet somebody will and it will be Oscar bait). Anyway, I find most movies today to be so boring that I've gone back and purged on the classics. To justify this, I've started a Podcast series called The Tawfik Zone's Alternative Oscars. Even though the films back then were usually better, I've found that I still stray from The Oscars' choices (hence the Alternative Oscars bit). Admittedly, our podcast is still a bit rough as we're still figuring out our rhythm, but I thought I'd go ahead and share our first two episodes: 1950 - http://tawfikzone.com/2015/10/16/podcast-alternative-oscars-episode-1-1950/ 1951 - http://tawfikzone.com/2015/12/19/podcast-alternative-oscars-episode-2-1951/ What did you think of the Best Picture nominees of those years? What do you think of our Alternative Nominees? What would be your lineup for Alternative Oscars for the 1950 and 51 cycles? Is there anything we can do to improve our discussion? Any constructive feedback is appreciated. I hope you'll stay tuned for our 1952 entry which we aim to do mid- to late- February. Thanks, Adam
Hey Out There! Any B Moviecast fans participating in the course? We should link together and petition Vince to do some Noir films during this time, they are TRUE B movies and worthy of the B Movie Cast treatment. We can than promote the cast in this forum and get some new B Movie Cast Fans. I hope to hear from you, it was thanks to Bmoviecasters Kelly and Derek that I found out about the course, and I love it. How about you? Let's make our love for B Movies known and get some more folks in the fold. Ken AKA Evan Kendal AKA Santitito
