And now for the hot stuff.

For the rest of the year (October excepted), we will have sexy bits for you every other day:

  • Mondays will feature sex-related documentaries or docu-dramas.
  • Wednesdays will feature sexy films.
  • Fridays will feature sex comedies.

And there will be sexy treats along the way. 😉

We hope that you enjoy this special  programming.

October 2015

Sorry for having been out of touch for so long, folks. We’ve been busy producing a comic strip and it’s taken up all of our time.

In the meantime, we extended the Monty Python set until the end of the summer, explored The Marx Brothers, Jim Carrey, Tom Hanks and Steve Martin to various degrees.

Now, October usually finds a slate of horror films on The Critical Eye. Unfortunately, this year, there’s a Canadian election, and we decided to focus our attention on that.

After all, what’s scarier than Michael, Freddy and Jason? Well, Justin, Thomas and Stephen, of course! 😛

So we have a slate of British and Canadian political television shows and films from various eras ready for you. It’s going to be crammed (sometimes twice a day!), and we’re talking drama, suspense, comedy, and even documentaries. Frankly there’s some great stuff in there. Do check it out.

After October 20th, we will focus our attentions on two related horror franchises: ‘Scream’ and ‘Halloween’. We’ve done many of the ‘Halloween’ films before, but we’ll complete the set with all the ones we haven’t. Plus there are a couple of surprises in there as well.  No trick, all treat.

Enjoy!

Dear readers,

It’s been an exciting few weeks of science fiction-themed motion pictures, but The Critical Eye is ready to explore something new. And here’s what we have in store for you:

Monty Python: Fans of Monty Python rejoice! Up until mid-July, we will be focusing our attentions on the Pythons, with a book each Tuesday and a movie or documentary on Saturdays.

Duran Duran: we’ll be wrapping up our lengthy Duran Duran music series by July, so fans of the group should definitely check in on the first Sunday of each month until then.

Music Sundays: We’re forging ahead with our music-related Sundays for the foreseeable future, but we’ll change things up with a few months of motion pictures starring musicians (The Beatles, Madonna, Paul McCartney, The Monkees, Prince, Ramones, Rick Springfield, …etc.). That should be a blast… even when it hurts.

Mother’s Day: Although Music Sundays will pre-empt Mother’s Day itself, we do have a full slate of special programming for the week prior to Mother’s Day. Tune in for some campy fun!

Father’s Day: Similarly to Mother’s Day week, the week prior to Father’s Day will see a full slate of motion pictures that you should watch to inject some laughs into your own celebration.

And that’s not all! No doubt there will be a bunch of surprises along the way, too, so do check out The Critical Eye in coming weeks. You surely won’t want to miss out!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

We’re right in the middle of putting together a special set of motion pictures taking place in a post-apocalyptic future. It came together organically, after watching the trilogy of ‘The Thing’ movies, but a few late-minute additions are wedging themselves in.

In the next few weeks, you can expect a bunch of fun stuff like the ‘I Am Legend’ tryptich, the ‘Mad Max’ trilogy, the ‘Escape From N.Y./L.A.’ films, the Judge Dredd films, as well as a few ’80s classics and some topical documentaries on life after global catastrophes.

Yep, I know, fun stuff. Ahem. But it’s totally entertaining and fascinating stuff, we assure you.

We’re also very excited to announce that we’re in the midst of devoting our Sunday music features to $#!t-kicking female artists, culminating with International Women’s Day. Then we have a trilogy of Björk-related programming to wrap up the month of March.

In light of this, we will skip Duran Duran for a month. Duran Duran will be back on April 5th, we promise.

The next few weeks are going to be well worth your time, so do check back in regularly.

We hope that you enjoyed our month-long Hallowe’en programming. If you did, you’ll be happy to know that November will see a spin-off of that, with remakes of some of those spooky films popping up from time to time.

But, mostly, we will try to lighten things up, focusing on comedies more. For starters, we will be doing the whole Pink Panther series this month, one of our all-time favourites. We also have a laundry list of graphic novels for you.

It’ll be a good time for sure, with a little bit for everyone.

We have made a few changes to the main page, switching up the categories and adding tongue-in-cheek bios of all our contributors, including quick links to the blurbs they contributed to. For anyone ever curious to know more about the people behind the blurbs, this is the place to be.

We’re also getting revved up for the Hallowe’en season. We have some terrific stuff in store for you this month, including the original ‘The Amityville Horror’ trilogy, a ‘The Exorcist’ trilogy, the ‘Evil Dead’ trilogy, a ‘The Shining’ trifecta and a whole bunch of spooky ghosts, creepy crawlies and evil spirits.

We hope that you will get a kick out of the special programming that we have put together for you!

Our string of sizzling summer blurbs will be wrapping up this month, followed by a series of Catherine Breillat films, before our October Horrorfest takes over for one full month. We have a terrific slate of spooky films in store for you, as well as creepy music features.

We’re also reconfiguring the main page slightly to include profiles for each of The Critical Eye’s collaborators. Finally, you’ll get to know the people behind the blurbs a little bit – plus which each profile will feature links to their contributions.

We hope that you will continue to visit The Critical Eye in the coming weeks. There’s a ton of wicked stuff on the horizon!

As of last night, the Literature page has been updated to include all the books I have read in recent years – at least, all the ones I remembered to jot down (oh, the joys of lists!).

There are no blurbs to accompany them, but that may change with time. In any case, the ratings may be of some interest for those of you who read a lot and want suggestions. Enjoy!

For the second summer in a row, TCE will be publishing a sizzling string of blurbs about sexy or sex-related films and books. Maybe even music, depending on what you consider sexy.

To change things up and keep the blog interesting for those of you who don’t want to only read about sex all summer long, we’ll alternate with all sorts of other blurbs.

Here are some of this summer’s highlights:

Summer2014a

  • The continuation of our monthly Duran Duran-related blurbs, typically the first Sunday of each month (although we may do double duty here and there). There are a few surprises in store. It should be fun.

Summer2014b

  • Comedies that have suicide as a running theme. It’s a grim subject that deserves mention, even if it’s done in a lighter context. We’re not at all laughing at suicide nor contemplating it for ourselves. So please don’t freak out.

Summer2014c

  • Caucasian actors playing Indian characters. A friend of mine understandably decries the fact that this used to happen; there are plenty of excellent Indian actors, after all. We’re briefly going to touch on this by revisiting a few classics.

Daniel Craig - New James Bond movie Casino Royale

  • The final three James Bond films (i.e. the Daniel Craig ones), in our unique MBV group commentary format. It’s been a fantastic journey (nearly two years long!) and we’re ending on a high note. Look for these in August.

We have a lot more in store along the way and in the fall, so do check in regularly!

We are now done sprucing up all our blurbs with synopses and original movie posters (where available). The final step will be to spell-check and fine-tune everything – this process should be quasi-invisible, however, if lengthy.
