Episode 33 - Cheating on the Format

2nd Annual Daily Monotony Film Awards

What better way to start the 2010 season of Weekly Monotony AND celebrate our 1 year anniversary than recapping all the great films of 2009.  I put myself to the task and asked my co-hosts to do same.  One simple goal: name your top 5 films of the year.  Of course after 2 weeks of fretting, watching, re-watching, making lists, crossing them out, and generally stressing out over my top 5, I realized the foolishness of my imposed 5-item constraint.  And whatever you feel about ranking films of disparate genres into some arbitrary order, in the end my struggle to yield only five proved to me that despite my initial concerns, 2009 was another great year for films.

You can see, by my collage of photoshoppery, which films ended being finalists, but to find out what we collectively dubbed Daily Montony's Best Film of 2009, you'll have to listen below.

Put down your Academy Awards Ballot, it's Weekly Monotony.

Episode 26 - Sliced Bread: The Movie

Film Review - "District 9"

I've always said the best movies lead to the best conversations, and if how long we can talk about this film is any measure, District 9 must have been the best movie we've all seen in a long, long time. That, or we just don't know when to shut up. Either is likely. Check it out as we delve deep into the world of Neil Blomkamp's directorial debut, District 9,and learn whether his docu-drama alien action thriller is worthy of a solid hour and half of blathering, or whether the film, much like our podcast, is fit for non-humans only.

No non-humans beyond this point. It's Weekly Monotony.

Episode 23 - Paying Double

Game & Movie News Special

Sometimes when the only thing to see is Bruno, it's best not to see anything at all. But a little hitch like "no movie to review" won't keep this podcast off the air as we discuss some of last week's juicier news from the gaming and film fronts, including Harry Potter's magically high rottentomatoes score and DICE's release of Battlefield 1943.

More entertaining than the News Hour with Jim Lerher, It's Weekly Monotony.
