CRITICWATCH - PETE HAMMOND IS A BUST!: SUMMIT DRAFTS THE WRONG CRITICS
by Erik Childress
"As a film critic there is a subconscious expectation that comes with how a film studio screens its movies. We all know (or should know) by now that when they wait until the night before or just forego invitations altogether that even they know they have something unspeakable on the horizon. By average, even critics in the big cities are aware that a Monday or Tuesday screening of an opener that week is a toss-up proposition, especially on a major release that is "critic-proof" and yet screened as professional courtesy. We still can't figure out what Paramount was thinking with how they screened Noah. But the earlier a studio screens a film for the press, the happier they are with it and feel confident enough in getting the perceived curmudgeons to start talking it up early. Even if they continue to embargo our reviews as long as possible. But it also gives that studio time to get real professional writers to tout their movie. They might even be able to get something interesting to put on an ad or in a commercial. So the question this week is who at Summit traded away all their best draft picks to end up with those who are well past the concussion limit?" (more)

CRITICWATCH - DROWNING IN A SEA OF NON-CRITICS
by Erik Childress
"Whenever a story comes out about the relevancy of film critics in this day and age I often laugh it off or wave it away completely. It's a question that seemingly is asked every six months. I participated on one panel where the topic is brought up at the Chicago International Film Festival last October and this April I'll be on a panel at the C2E2 convention entitled "Your Opinion Sucks!" hosted by Rotten Tomatoes Editor-in-Chief Matt Atchity and Senior Editor Grae Drake. Shameless plug aside it will be interesting to interact with an audience who I suspect will be a step above the average fanboy looking to throw feces on anyone who dares disagree with them that Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the greatest film of all-time. A discussion for another time. For now we will look specifically at two studios who have gone out of their way to keep actual critics as far removed from their marketing plans as possible." (more)
THE TOP 10 FILM SELECTIONS OF SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST 2014
by Jason Whyte
"The 2014 edition of South By Southwest Film was another outstanding year of amazing films, reconnecting with old friends and finding true discoveries left and right. The festival gets busier and busier every year and there is a lot of waiting in lines and it is worth every moment. Having attended South By Southwest Film since 2007, I have felt it all with this festival over the years and see it grow into something that words can't describe. And even though it can get overwhelming at times, I was in line many times ever day to sample what SxSW had to offer, and wound up seeing 46 feature films over the course of Friday to the following Saturday morning from March 7th to the 15th. I saw lots of world premieres, indie discoveries and even got to shake the hand of Nicolas Cage. So I was doing something right." (more)
