The Ten Best Films of 2017 (Halfway Edition)

The prime-numbered year of 2017 has been a divisive one, which is at least a little ironic.  Now that the glass is half of something, it is time to broadcast my 100% correct and 99% meaningless opinions on the Ten Best Films of 2017.  I’ve done a few of these Top Ten lists here on Plot and Theme, and I always add commentary to them to keep them from feeling like a Buzzfeed list, but for you William Shakesman fans I will reproduce a brief and witty summary at the very end.

State of the Blog – July 2017

The summer is in full swing, and it is time to update you with the goings-on here at Plot and Theme.  The standard formula will apply to this State of the Blog post:  we’ll look at the past month, talk a tad about the new movies that are on the horizon, and make outlandish promises about the posts I am going to write this month.

State of the Blog – June 2017

As we inch towards the halfway point of the year, blockbuster season is now in full swing.  Here at Plot and Theme, things are going swimmingly, and I’ve got a lot of cool things going on, plus neat flicks and pieces on the blog to look forward to.  But, we’ll start by looking back on what went down during the month of May, both in the greater landscape of cinema, and here on my humble little blag.

Post #300 on Plot and Theme!

For my 300th post here on Plot and Theme, I decided to update all my readers by explaining the next phase of my blogging, which involves getting the word out that the blog is growing and rewarding readers who support my nonsensical writings.

State of the Blog: May 2017

April showers bring May flowers, Mayflowers bring pilgrims, and May itself brings the start of Summer Blockbuster Season, that baffling mixture of excitement and predictable, four-quadrant committeethink.  As we touch base at the beginning of this season, I’ll discuss the films that have me stoked for this month (both big and small), talk about a few pieces I have in the works, and generally lay out the plans of Plot and Theme.  Not too complicated, but it should at least be fun.

State of the Blog – April 2017

It’s April, the lion of March has transfigured into a lamb (at least I think that’s how it works), and now the fools have come and gone (I’m sure).  All the while, the endless cycle of movie releases continues unabated and I’m here on Plot and Theme to contribute to the confusion with my entirely correct opinions.  This month, the blog turns two full years old, I creep close to 300 total posts, and I’ve got some great pieces in the pipeline.  We’ll talk about all of that plus some cool new movies to keep your eyes out for in the month of April.
