Best Shot - The Final Episodes of the Season

Some News!
A few weeks ago we asked your opinion on changing upHit Me With Your Best Shotinto a year round but non-weekly feature -- to better hit movies when they're available outside the summer time.After careful consideration,we're going to experiment with the current Season 6 by extending itirregularlythrough October.We simply can't do it during the four intense Oscar months (November-February) as much as we'd like to...time being just way too tight.But for Season 7 I think we'll try biweekly from March through October of 2016.How about that?


*Monday Night Special September 7th*
Before the official kick off of fall prestige season (i.e.the Venice/Toronto/Telluride madness) let's revisit the most exciting film of Summer 2015 as an FYC for Oscar voters who don't often think "hey how about that sci-fi action franchise?"while voting.George Miller's long-in-production return to his post-apocalyptic desert world turned out better than anyone could have possibly expected,i.e.better than any of its predecessors with more adrenaline fueled scenes than 90% of what passes for "action"of late and fine performances from Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy as Imperator Furiosa and Mad Max.[Digital Copies release: August 11th | BluRay/DVD release: September 1st]

We'll do two more titles in October and call Season Six a wrap!

A bi-weekly year round series?Yes!DO EET!!!

July 28,2015 | Unregistered CommenterVolvagia

I think a monthly year-round series makes sense (even if I end up only being able to participate in 50-75% of the episodes).

July 28,2015 | Unregistered CommenterPaul Outlaw

HMWYBS is my favorite series.A bi-weekly year round with some hiatuses (maybe during the busy awards season) to prevent the fatique (is there such thing?) sounds about right.

p.s.Mad Max: Fury Road episode is going to be so much fun!

July 28,2015 | Unregistered CommenterJija

I would absolutely love doing a bi-weekly series.There are so many great films to do year round (YAAAAASSS MAD MAX FURY ROAD FOR HMWYBS) and giving us 2 weeks to watch and choose will make it so much easier.

Love the series and look forward to participating more!

As someone who plays practically every week,I like the condensed summer schedule,but bi-weekly year-round sounds like a good pace too.

July 28,2015 | Unregistered CommenterCoco

I love the series and would like to see it bi-weekly/monthly.Honestly,I didn't participate more because I was disappointed in the comments.I didn't get many,and I had trouble leaving them for others.Maybe if you went with a monthly interval you could highlight a smaller number of entries at a time,keeping readers from being overwhelmed?That might also encourage readers to post comments on the individual entries at TFE since a lot of contributors host blogs with commenting disabled.Just a thought.

July 28,2015 | Unregistered CommenterDusty

I've only participated in one of them (two as of tomorrow),but I'd enjoy seeing it as a bi-weekly yearly feature.

July 28,2015 | Unregistered CommenterAnna

Wasn't Repulsion originally on the schedule this season?

July 28,2015 | Unregistered CommenterJan

I always love reading HMWYBS entries even when I'm unable to participate,so I'm all for it being year-round,either bi-weekly or monthly.

July 28,2015 | Unregistered Commenterdenny

Oh my god,YES for Angels in America.I never actually finished watching it,so I will give it a try again now.

July 28,2015 | Unregistered CommenterFadhil

I have never posted in the HMWYBS shot series -- don't have a blog -- but just wanted to say that I LOVE this series,and follow along by watching the movies (if I haven't seen them),and reading the articles on your site and the participating sites.

So,just as a reader,wanted to chime in and say that I would definitely be interested in the series continuing more often.It's such an interesting way to look at films,and in today's era,I find that much of contemporary film criticism focuses on writing/performances,so it's great to have such interesting analyses of composition in the movies and how it conveys meaning through this series.

July 28,2015 | Unregistered CommenterAlexander

I love HMWYBS so I would like to see it become a bi-weekly series year round.It is so much fun to see the shots people choose and why.I may even start my own blog and participate in the future.

re: Angels in America

You could do six shots from the frickin' opening credits and write an essay.God,the number of times I read the play/saw it performed/watched the miniseries....

July 31,2015 | Unregistered CommenterArkaan

I think bi-weekly yearly is awesome idea!I can't participate in all of them because some have content I don't watch but I've really enjoyed the one's I have participated in.It's so interesting to see what other people pick and read their insight.Plus I would never have seen The Red Shoes or Safe if I hadn't been doing the project.

August 2,2015 | Unregistered CommenterR Wagner

I agree with this suggestion: "A bi-weekly year round with some hiatuses (maybe during the busy awards season) to prevent the fatique (is there such thing?) sounds about right."

August 5,2015 | Unregistered CommenterSquasher88

Wow,I already have my pick for MAD MAX.Done.And done.

August 5,2015 | Unregistered CommenterRyan T.

How the almighty hell did I miss theMad Maxnews?I am SO STOKED for that one,and I'm pleased to have retroactive justification for pre-ordering the blu-ray.

August 13,2015 | Registered CommenterTim Brayton

FYI Mad Max isn't available on Netflix until 9/29.Shouldn't be too much of a problem as many people should've seen it (and should have bought the DVD asap),but just a heads up.
