News that the US is collecting massive amounts of private data about its citizens has inspired me. It has been pointed out to me that this show in part resembles the Jerry Springer game show creation Baggage.
The mixture of news footage and the Super-8 filter gives a real sense of the period, and although some of the hostages are a bit 1D (and I’m not talking tight red pants and windswept hairstyles on teenagers) and the handheld camera was giving me motion sickness for the first 15 minutes, you actually really care what happens here.
The tension is masterfully managed right up till the end (although the movie jumped the shark a bit for me when even the clutch in the getaway car stuck.
Steven Soderbergh’s films often come in for criticism as being all style no substance.
It pushes the whole American Dream subtext thing in a way that is way too obvious and it didn’t quite work as a study of post-GFC America in the way I think it intended to be. Last but not least, movies which could technically be called American but aren’t really. And so with those caveats and others, in no particular order, good, bad and ugly, I present to you The 2012 Movies of the Year! I’ve never read the books, so coming at it from a fresh perspective, I loved the set-up and the execution (excuse the pun). But yet again, high expectations got in the way for me here (as you’ll see is my story of 2012). So although this movie premiered at Sundance nearly two years ago, its late theatrical release here has seen it squeeze on to the 2012 list (it was only widely released in the US in October 2011 so whatevs). Margin Call is a very play-like piece with the action centring on one company’s actions, from bottom (or middleish) to top, on the day the global financial crisis wiped a gazillion dollars off the market. My top film of 2012, this is a wonderfully told, beautifully shot tale of young love on the run. If there was ever any doubt that the Oscars ceremony operates on a semi-fictional level of timeless glitz and glamour, it was put to rest with this line from Billy Crystal’s opening monologue.
All the requisite parts were there, of course, but I must admit, after a few years of pairs hosting, and before that, the booming Broadway presence of Hugh Jackman, Crystal felt a little lonely up there.
Well, for the American film industry’s night of nights, it was about as American as apfel strudel. 2009 National Summit: Human health and sustainability - What are the challenges for globalisation?
2009 National Summit: Corporate social responsibility - How should business behave in the GFC? 2009 National Summit: Labour and human rights - Can we afford them in a global financial crisis? The Dating Game TV show was a 30 minute game show on ABC where a contestant would ask questions that were typically funny or sensual in nature of three other contestants of the opposite sex. In the beginning, the dates provided by the Dating Game were typically just a local night on the town but later the show began opening its pockets for luxurious dates to exotic locations.
Occasionally there would be an episode of the Dating Game where they told about the dates that were successful and had developed into relationships. The questions asked on the Dating Game were masterfull inuendos, often with sexual undertones.
For its final three seasons in prime-time, the Dating Game was followed by "The Newlywed Game" which was also produced by Chuck Barris and the sexual inuendos were even more flagrant. The Cosby Show might seem like a safe sitcom featuring dodgy jumpers, cute kids and corny lessons in life – but was considered groundbreaking in the 80s because it featured an affluent African-American family.
Bill has been married to Camille Olivia Hanks since 1964 – they have five children together. In 1997 he admitted giving $100,000 to Shawn Upshaw to keep her from going public about an affair they had in the 1970s. In 2006, Cosby settled a lawsuit against him by a Canadian woman who claimed he had attacked her.
UPDATE: In January 2014 it was announced that Bill is working on a new family sitcom in NBC. She has been married three times (to a dentist, to the lead singer of The Village People, and to a former American-footballer). Since the show Geoffrey has had very small roles in FlashForward, The Secret Life of an American Teenager and It’s Always Sunny In Philidelphia. She began dating Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa in 2005, they have two children – a daughter called Lola Iolani Momoa, and had a son named Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa. Tempestt (not a typo) later had her own talk-show in the mid 90’s and more recently appeared in Celebrity Fit Club.
After The Cosby Show Keisha’s family moved to Virginia and she later got a degree in sociology. After The Cosby Show, Deon starred in a sitcom called Getting By and played Tamara’s boyfriend in later seasons of Sister, Sister.


Earle is a stage actor who has performed both in America and Norway (he’s fluent in Norwegian) – he also voiced Panthero in Thundercats!
He won an Emmy for playing Cliff’s dad, but was only 11 years older than Bill Cosby in real life. I loved the Cosby show, I watched it on Saturday’s when I went to dialysis to help my three hours and one half pass faster. Hosted by David Millbern and Olivia Harewood, the show pits a gay couple against a straight couple.
According to a press release, Game, 35, will embark on a national tour while his friends introduce him to cuties across the country.
After being arrested more times than he can remember, coupled with a 35 year drug addiction, David Norman, 67, earned his Bachelor's degree from Columbia University. Rashid Derissant, 24 will serve almost century behind bars for a host of charges including murder, attempted murder and assault.
One contestant is presented with four potential partners and in subsequent rounds is shown their internet history, phone records, and bank details (without knowing whose is whose!).
But it looks pretty, it pushes the right buttons, the ending is great and it’s six-pack central.
It combines some of the best bits of monster movies with a decently nuanced high school drama about your classic outsider trying to fit in. My ideal list of 10 American movies might have also included Killing Me Softly, Dredd (not kidding, it sounded really good!), Arbitage, Ruby Sparks and Cosmopolis. Most obvious here is Skyfall, a co-production, but one which is about as American as warm beer and Manchester United. But it does what it says on the box, and from what I’ve heard has something for fans and noobs alike.
You’ve given us so much greatness over the years, whether it be your '80s breakouts in Alien and Blade Runner, your romper stompers like Gladiator and Black Hawk Down or your quiet hits like Thelma and Louise or Matchstick Men. The first action sequence, even if you don’t know what the flip is going on, was certainly exhilarating, and the whole underground terrorism thing, despite the sometimes troubled Occupy parallels, was very cool.
After the personality of The Joker and Harvey Two Face, Bane just couldn’t hold the stage, especially with his silly mask and voice.
It’s a solid 8, but I wanted more from Nolan, who has made some of my favourite films of all time. Everything hinges on conversations, with long takes in boardroom meetings, small asides on the streets, and chance meetings between characters all playing into a complex web of people trapped in some pretty heavy economic rationalism.
It is one of his most accessible films, something his latest trajectory of Darjeeling Limited, Fantastic Mr Fox and now Moonrise Kingdom shows may be a larger trend for the director. The show this year had that old-school feel of familiarity that suggested you leave your troubles at the door and travel back to a simpler, golden age — no doubt in reaction to the dismal performance of young pair James Franco and Anne Hathaway last year. The opening montage had some highlights, including Crystal as a live-action Tin Tin and getting a manpash from George Clooney. Not fat jokes, lame puns based on movie titles, and outdated references to pop culture (plenty of those to go around!). Emma Stone was the perfect foil to the perennially funny Ben Stiller, getting in a good jibe about his ridiculous Avatar outfit from two years ago, as was Gwyneth Paltrow bringing the free-wheeling Robert Downey Jr into line. Martin Scorsese’s Hugo scooped the pool for technical awards, winning five, and The Descendants got the consolation prize of Best Adapted Screenplay (thank god, seeing as it deserved Best Picture about as much as Ghost did in 1990), but apart from that there was quite a foreign flavour. Eighty-two year old Christopher Plummer and Woody Allen both walked away with awards, but with the exception of standing ovation winner and Best Supporting Actress Octavia Spencer from The Help, the only young or multicultural things about the ceremony were Bieber and black-face. Cirque de Soleil’s amazing acrobats and the charming odes to Old Hollywood that were Hugo and The Artist. Viewers might have been skeptical, however, about the permanent nature of those relationships because the follow-ups usually just said that the couple had a great first date and went out again.
Then in October of 1966, ABC moved the series to their Thursday night prime-time schedule at 8:30PM to replace "The Tammy Grimes Show" that only survived a few episodes.
For example, a question might be, "After we enjoy a delicious gourmet meal on our date, what would you want for dessert?" and the answer might be, "I won't say what the dessert would be but it will involve whipped cream" or something like that.
And while the ladies are hoping to win a special place in Game’s heart, Game is also paying close attention to see which good girl turns bad because of the rock star lifestyle of the entertainment industry. Knowing the outcome of the plot for one (googling "Iranian Hostage Crisis" would have been a quick ticket to disappointment), or the actors (I have very mixed feelings about Ben Affleck), or some particularly good reviews. And any movie that makes you reconsider your opinion of Ben Affleck as both an actor and director is saying something. Best watched with friends while hollering and hooting (stuffing dollar bills in the DVD player optional).
The Artist, for example, a unique and wonderful film, won the 2011 Academy Award for Best Picture and so was hard to justify it making a 2012 list, even though it was released in Australia this year.
Sherlock Holmes similarly has American lineage but its inclusion would probably have our old friend Arthur Conan Doyle spinning in his proverbial grave (in the unlikely event that his somehow sentient corpse cared about this humble reviewers opinion).


The set-pieces are great and filled with that mixture of suspense, horror and grim determination that made Alien a classic (the scene where Noomi Rapace extracts the alien from herself is one of the top three scenes of the year). But no, you had to go and make one, if not the, best action thriller of all time with The Dark Knight. Marion Cotillard is a welcome addition to any movie, this being no Inexception, but her transformation to villain at the end was all too sudden to really engender any interest. As such, the big presence of stage and screen actors like Kevin Spacey, Jeremy Irons and to a lesser extent Paul Bettany, gives the whole thing a gravitas essential to keep you engaged. Just like a scoop of your favourite ice cream, it’s sweet, familiar and just complex enough to leave you wanting more. The Artist, a French film, won five, including Best Director, Best Actor and, unsurprisingly, Best Film.
Maybe we can say that in tough times, politically and economically, the Oscars are an excuse for some of that old-school glitz and glamour fun to be played out on a big stage for everyone to gawk, moan, and chat about. The questioner could not see their three potential dates so appearance did not factor into the decision. It had some pretty strong competition from "My Three Sons" on CBS and "Star Trek" on NBC but it was a "fun" show and audiences loved it! Questions like, "What does your husband do that's most likely to result in you and he making whoopee". At this point, the chosen one gets to see one piece of dirt on the main contestant (embarrassing medical records?
As does pretty much everyone in this movie (both strips and has fun); there are more scantily clad buff dudes here than at Stereosonic. Same sort of goes for The Muppets movie, a highly enjoyable romp that crossed the Trans-Pacific release date line.
Good first effort though and more than worth a watch considering the imminent fiscal cliff and the knock-ons it could have.
I would show you the trailer to show you what I mean but instead I’ll show you some meta material from the movie that captures the offbeat aesthetic pretty well. But there is so much more going on with the characters, not to mention the intricate set design, sharp cinematography and great costumes that you feel like you want to rewind to the start and watch it all over again as soon as it finished. Probably Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin, whose twitter exchange was probably my favourite part of the night. Best Editing went to an Australian, Kirk Baxter, along with American Angus Wall for the remake of Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Merryl Streep picked up Best Actress for her wonderful turn as British PM Margret Thatcher in the fairly good Iron Lady. But it’s hard not to see the wonderful Viola Davis overlooked, and say that another winner tonight was a healthy dose of Hollywood conservatism. Answers like, "I'm most likely to want to make whoopee when my husband dresses up in my baby doll nightie" caused many an embarrasing moments on that show! But the thing which will stick with me from 2012 is this: The less you know about a movie before you go in, the better.
I found no dramatic tension in dropping a demigod out of a plane (if I was him, I would have jumped…) and Black Widow had about as much depth of character as Malibu Stacey. And in a year in which The Help picked up a few nominations, having a blackface gag seems a bit 1960s Mississippi for mine.
And our very-almost-own Bret McKenzie from Flight of the Conchords fame won Best Song for "Man or Muppet" (an absolute must watch!). After that, the Dating Game returned for the Fall of 1973 season in syndication with Chuck Woolery as a new host. After three seasons off the air, Chuck returned, again in syndication, with more episodes from 1977-1980! The name was changed after one season to "The All New Dating Game" because the format was slightly changed.
In addition to the old questioning and choosing a date segments, some previous daters would return to tell viewers how their date turned out.
In the fall of 1996, Brad Sherwood became the host of another new version where the potential dates were ranked on on both looks and personality. Then the chooser would decide how important those two traits were to them and that would determine who became the date. Unfortunately, looks almost always won and that probably didn't make viewers (who mostly didn't look like fashion models) very happy so the show died an early death.
