Keep your eyes peeled to this very website from Sunday (US Time) (Monday Australian Time), for the "Annual Sunday Afternoons OSCARS™ BLOG!"
Week ending 24/2/14- "New Wolf in Town"
Indeed. Crazy Mick jumped to the top of the top ten list with Wolf Creek 2 knocking Wolf of Wall Street and Robocop down more than a couple of spots.
The debut week for the Aussie horror sequel was bigger than its predecessors opening and things are looking up with some lightweight opponents opening over the next week.
Elsewhere Last Vegas has firmly planted itself in the number 4 spot and is gently chugging away earning decent dollars.
Endless Love was unseated by 12 Years a Slave in the war for the 7th and 8th spot, after the former leapfrogged the latter last week.
The only other point to note this week is the distinct lack of double figure grosses for the current crop of the top ten. By next week there will likely only be one in Wolf of Wall Street, and it shows the sharp drop off in movies with any kind of staying power.
That might seem a little hasty, given that most of the films are relatively new ("Give them a chance!!"), but it is extremely unlikely that any of them will start cracking the $10 million mark.
It seems that the quiet season has begun, with the Oscars about to emerge and a long wait for the next big blockbusters.
For all the results from 2013 check out the Oscar's blog, which is now completely updated and (re) uploaded!
Stay tuned for the new 2014 oscars blog which will be coming soon..............

The following site updates will be happening soon (hopefully I will be able to keep to the schedule below!):
ONE: The remaining Sunday Arvos podcast's (ie. one's that are missing from the list) will be updated by the end of January.
TWO: The History of Film Series will also be updated with BRAND NEW episodes again, from the End of April onwards. Part 12 will be up by the end of January with many more parts to follow (roughly 1 every month)
THREE: The Rocket Show and The Peanut Gallery Podcasts are in the process of being re-mastered (no really, the audio quality wasn't great when they were recorded so they need to be fixed up), and will be uploaded in bits and pieces from the end of January as well.
Marshall on the TV
Yes, it's true. Someone allowed Marshall to appear on the TV Box.
A couple of weeks ago James Tinniswood and that handsome stranger to the left there, sat down with Alana Shootingstar and Scott Black on "The Late Nite Show, with Scott Black", on 31 Digital, (the old Briz 31 Channel).
The topic of discussion moved from Marshall's start in comedy, to live biscuit reviews, a new movie review show starring Marshall and James, and the fact that local Brisbane comedian Steven J Whiteley is a dark wizard.
Now, that episode (Season 3, Ep 13) is up on the Tube of You, and you can check that out at the official "Late Nite Show" You Tube Channel. Or, if you dare, you can see Marshall's segment right below on this very site.
PODCAST 23 - Who Asked Sunday Arvos??
The answer is, they did. Now available on the Podcasts page is when the Who Asked You Show from Las Vegas, NV in the US of A, was the special guest on Sunday Afternoons.
Expect a lot of movie talk, a lot of discussion about how far behind Australian movie releases are and a whole lot more of everything else.
And to check out Marshall's appearance on the Who Asked You Show, check out their website or the itunes link right here....
And for a special blooper behind the scenes peak see below.......
Who Asked Sunday Arvos - Sneak peak/blooper.......
Check out the clip below for a peak behind the scenes of the Who Asked Sunday Arvos special cross over event.
This blooper was the result of an on-going discussion about the appropriateness (or lack thereof) of a new DVD to be released "The Vietnam War in HD".
Charlie and Jabari were giving their version of what the DVD commentary would be, until it ran over time.....Marshall kept recording anyway......
The name says what it is about....
Make sure to check out this great web series hosted by Jerry Seinfeld and featuring some amazing comedians. Really funny and they are only 12 mins long. How easy is that.
All the eps are now available, episode 2 is the pick of the bunch with Ricky Gervais, also really worth a look is the last episode with Michael Richards but they are all good. Check it out at crackle.com or at comediansincarsgettingcoffee.com. Or just click on the big picture above....
MOVIES OPENING THIS WEEK:
