  1. Thanks for the heads-up! Not showing on my DVR so I'm still recording a lot of feature films I'm not going to watch just so I can fast forward to the shorts at the end. 😀
  2. No need to be sorry, not your fault! I think the six degrees format is a poor one for this reason. The marathon worked better when they went award by award by award...you could have a block of Live Action Short Film awards, a block of Animated Short Film awards, a block of Documentary Feature awards, all awards that are basically excluded from the marathon in its current format. Heck, you could go back to the simple A to Z format that they used once and do the same. Clearly I need to get myself made CEO of Turner Classic Movies.
  3. Not a lot of interest in this topic, apparently.
  4. This was the first film I watched after getting Filmstruck, and it is terrific.
  5. Anyone know if there's a way to track what short films and one-reel wonders will be airing during the marathon? Those turn up on the Watch TCM app after they air, correct?
  6. Well there's only so many movies to draw from, and TCM doesn't have the rights to all of them...no doubt they'd love to run "Star Wars". I dunno, they must have a reason for what they do. Presumably 31 Days of Oscar gets more viewers. And there's someone out there who's never seen "Citizen Kane" before. They have 11 months out of the year to show the weird stuff. Meanwhile, I'm hoping the short film schedule is filled in on the grid once we get closer to Feb. 1. I have a particular interest in Oscar-nominated short films and I wish TCM would list when they come on, especially next month.
  7. Why no topic for this yet? The schedule's out. It's a six-degrees-of-separation format again, which is fine, except that there are no documentaries. Does anyone know any way to track or find out the short films that will be playing next month?
  8. Why do people have such a hard time understanding this?
  9. Sure. And of course there are only so many films in the pool to draw from. But it would be nice to mix them up some more. More Fox or Universal films. More post-1980 films. Different foreign language films. Any documentaries--still can't believe they're off the schedule this year. Animated shorts. Live-action shorts. People like me that have watched Turner Classic Movies for years, well, we've seen these films.
  10. Another reason the program is somewhat disappointing this year. A lot of retreads.
  11. I find myself a little disappointed by this slate. Specifically, it would have been nice if they had mixed up some other Foreign Language Film nominees. And there are no documentaries at all. I guess there's no way to tell what short films they're going to air? Surely they'll run a few as filler between the features. That's another thing that would have been nice. Give us a block of short films!
  12. "Street Angel" is scheduled to run on TCM three days from now, on Feb. 1 as part of "31 Days of Oscar". Read a Slate interview last year in which whoever runs TCM these days said they wouldn't ever run "The Birth of a Nation" again.
  13. Rebooting didn't work. Just like the poster below, the last TCM movie I see on my guide is "Last of the Mobile Hot-Shots", and the guide is blank after 4:30 am Pacific on November 19.
  14. I haven't, because this is a TCM-only problem...I'll try it later tonight and see.
