NEW BLOG - IMPORTANT!

So. The time has at last home to finalize the moving of this blog to the new site, MOVIEBOB CENTRAL. The complete backlog of posts from this original site and all subsequent new posts can now be accessed by clicking "BLOG" from the table of contents at the top of the main page, which will take you to the new version right here.

I will continue to update both blogs for the time being, but all fans and followers should be bookmarking the new site and the new blog ASAP.

Thank you for your continued patronage ;)

NEW OFFICIAL SITE ANNOUNCEMENT

Hey all!

I promised I was going to do this a year ago, and now it's officially underway: I've got a new, official, self-owned website; MOVIEBOB CENTRAL. It's a bit sparse right now, but ultimately it's going to become a hub for all of my work, news, series and merchandise (which currently means the books but should hopefully soon involve more than that.

This blog will continue to be updated as well for the time being, but the plan is for it to ultimately migrate to the blog section of the new site once I figure out how to do that. So bookmark the new place and get ready for a (hopefully) growth-filled 2017.

Bob's 2016 BOFCA Ballot

As I imagine most are aware, I'm a member and currently the Chairman of the Boston Online Film Critics Association, which late Friday night undertook voting for its year-end film awards. The results of said awards can be viewed HERE, and I invite you to share them as widely as you are able - every little bit helps.


Individual member ballots will be posted to the main BOFCA site at an upcoming date, but until then members are free to share their ballots as they see fit. After the jump, you can see mine:

Review: JACKIE (2016)

This review made possible in part through contributions to The MovieBob Patreon.



Spoiler warning for 2017: You're about to go through about a year and a half's worth of politically-themed film and television releases that are going to feel wistfully out of step because they were designed to be "current" with what everyone assumed was going to be the beginning of the Hillary Clinton administration. See: DESIGNATED SURVIVOR (aka "Aw, Remember White Guy Presidents: The Series") Lynda Carter's aggressively pro-immigration lady President on SUPERGIRL and (most imminently) MISS SLOANE, with Jessica Chastain embodying the ultimate ball-busting-Washington-corporatist-as-liberal-superheroine archetype as a near-sociopathic lobbyist who decides to crush The Gun Lobby under her stilletos as a personal challenge. (If only...)

Meanwhile, on the (accidentally) more prescient side, we have JACKIE; in which an iconic First Lady mourns the crib-death of a revolutionary Presidency that almost was as the nation prepares to slide into darkness in the background. Some art is topical, some art has topicality thrust upon it.
