Welcome Back Everybody

I know I have been on a prolonged absence from this blog, but that is because I needed some rest 🙂 But I am back 🙂 I will resume Moviedrome Mondays beginning in early January of 2023. A shout out to Steve, a fellow visitor of this site (check out his youtube channel under the username giulio sacchi), I will be working on my review of the poliziottesschi entry The Climber soon 🙂

The other thing I wanted to explain is that according to this Sight & Sound magazine tweet (read here), it is not in August that the greatest films ever made according to the aforementioned magazine will be released, but in November of this year. I honestly had no idea, I just always assumed this was the time they usually did it, but I was proven wrong. The good news about that however, is that it gives everybody more time to come up with the titles that they want to choose as their 10 favorite films 🙂 As for myself, I have already finished writing short summaries for six of the 10 titles I chose. In other words, it is still a work in progress. Aside from that though, I will also be composing 10 choices for my favorite American/English-Language films and another 10 dedicated towards foreign films.

My question to all of my dear readers is this: What are your 10 favorite American/English-Language Films and favorite foreign films? 🙂

Countdown to Sight & Sound Magazine’s 2022 Edition of The Greatest Films of All Time

Yes my dear readers, I know I have limited my Moviedrome Monday blog entries to that of every two weeks, but that is because I am busy with other stuff. I also want to say to Steve (a fellow visitor of this blog) that I sincerely apologize that I have not caught up yet with the longer version of the 1986 crime-drama Blood Ties. Nevertheless, I will eventually catch up 🙂 Also, please do check out Steve’s youtube channel (his user name is giulio sacchi) by clicking here.

Now with all of that out of the way, who here is familiar with Sight & Sound magazine? According to Wikipedia, it is a British monthly film magazine published by the British Film Institute (BFI) – read here. Anyway, every 10 years since 1952, the magazine has asked film critics to vote for their 10 greatest films of all time (read here). By 1992, film directors were allowed to participate as well (read here). Since Sight & Sound devotees are already aware of the past lists by critics and filmmakers (read here and here), let me cut to the chase. By all means, I will not be asked to participate in this poll. Second, I am not esteemed enough for the magazine to ask for my participation 🙂 Nevertheless, sometime in August, I will put together a list on this site, of what I consider to be the 10 greatest films ever made. Why August? Because that was when the results for the last poll were reported (August 1st 2012 in this case – read here for example). From there on out, Sight & Sound’s 2012 edition of the greatest films ever made would be published in there September issue (read here). I was 27 during then and today I am 37. Man, time sure does fly by 🙂

My question to all of my dear readers is this – what are your top 10 greatest films of all time? If you all are having a difficult time choosing, may I direct you to this insightful article from (coincidentally) Sight & Sound by the always reliable Christina Newland (read here).

Interesting tidbit according to Film Reference’s entry on Academic Journals, the publication entitled Film Comment is said to be Sight & Sound’s American equivalent (read here). Film Comment is published by the Film Society of Lincoln Center (now titled Film at Lincoln Center) in New York City. Though it says that it’s inception began in 1961, according to Wikipedia’s entry, it was 1962 (read here).

Either way, the 2022 edition of Sight & Sound’s greatest films of ever made should be an interesting one 🙂
