Each week, the show will feature four weekly segments which include:
-Movie Pick of The Week – A weekly vote of all films being released in Los Angeles that week.
-Independent Spotlight – A weekly Indie film suggestion from each member on the panel. The film can be playing in theaters, on-demand, or various streaming services.
-Retro Rewind – A weekly recommendation of an older release that is currently available on streaming, DVD, or Blu-Ray.
-Special Topic – Each week there will be a special conversation about something going on the industry or something that ties into this week’s episode.

Who are the LAOFCS?

Los Angeles is the home of Hollywood and the film industry. There are hundreds of critics in the Los Angeles area and yet there was only one critic’s circle. San Francisco, New York, Austin, and all other major cities throughout the USA have an online critics group but not Los Angeles. We wanted to change that and therefore launched the Los Angeles Film Critics Society (LAOFCS) at the end of 2016.

By creating this group, they wanted to ensure that the members of their society are reflective of those who reside in the city of Los Angeles. Diversity is very important in film criticism and they want to make sure that all voices are represented within our group. They also want to embrace members that are finding new ways to criticize film whether that be through video, podcasts, or on social media.

Over the next few years, the Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society is hoping to redefine what it means to be part of a film critics group by having a year-round presence. Most film critic circles at the end of each year begin to appear to discuss their favorite films of the year. They wanted to create a film critics group that would openly discuss film throughout the year and not just during award season.

Hosts Phil Svitek (@PhilSvitek), Marisa Serafini (@SerafiniTV) & Demetri Panos (@DMovies1701) discuss Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Review!

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

Bohemian Rhapsody Rocks! Disney Goes Nuts! Best Supporting Actress Predictions | LAOFCS Weekly Ep.13

Presenting LAOFCS Weekly, where members of the Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society come together to discuss new topics of the weeks, the movies you may have missed but need to check out, and reveal insider information of the film and journalism industry. Join host Scott Menzel with a rotating panel of members of the LAOFCS as they bring you into the inner circle with heightened discussion and knowledge.

On episode thirteen of LAOFCS Weekly, Scott is joined by Rama Tampubolon and Nikki Novak to reveal this week’s Movie Pick of the Week, chat about their picks for  Retro Rewind, plus their predictions for the Best Supporting Actress for the upcoming award season.

This week’s episode panel features:

-Scott Menzel
@TheOtherScottM

James Oster aka Jimmy O of Joblo.com
@JimmytotheO

Each week, the show will feature four weekly segments which include:
-Movie Pick of The Week – A weekly vote of all films being released in Los Angeles that week.
-Independent Spotlight – A weekly Indie film suggestion from each member on the panel. The film can be playing in theaters, on-demand, or various streaming services.
-Retro Rewind – A weekly recommendation of an older release that is currently available on streaming, DVD, or Blu-Ray.
-Special Topic – Each week there will be a special conversation about something going on the industry or something that ties into this week’s episode.

Who are the LAOFCS?

Los Angeles is the home of Hollywood and the film industry. There are hundreds of critics in the Los Angeles area and yet there was only one critic’s circle. San Francisco, New York, Austin, and all other major cities throughout the USA have an online critics group but not Los Angeles. We wanted to change that and therefore launched the Los Angeles Film Critics Society (LAOFCS) at the end of 2016.

By creating this group, they wanted to ensure that the members of their society are reflective of those who reside in the city of Los Angeles. Diversity is very important in film criticism and they want to make sure that all voices are represented within our group. They also want to embrace members that are finding new ways to criticize film whether that be through video, podcasts, or on social media.

Over the next few years, the Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society is hoping to redefine what it means to be part of a film critics group by having a year-round presence. Most film critic circles at the end of each year begin to appear to discuss their favorite films of the year. They wanted to create a film critics group that would openly discuss film throughout the year and not just during award season.

First Man (2018) Review | Anatomy of a Movie

Hosts Phil Svitek (@PhilSvitek) & Demetri Panos (@DMovies1701) discuss First Man (2018) Review!

Written by Academy Award® winner Josh Singer (Spotlight), the drama is produced by Wyck Godfrey & Marty Bowen (The Twilight Saga, The Fault in Our Stars) through their Temple Hill Entertainment banner, alongside Chazelle and Gosling. Isaac Klausner (The Fault in Our Stars) executive produces. DreamWorks Pictures co-finances the film.

Ten-year-old Lewis goes to live with his oddball uncle in a creaky old house that contains a mysterious ticktock noise.

Who are the LAOFCS?

Los Angeles is the home of Hollywood and the film industry. There are hundreds of critics in the Los Angeles area and yet there was only one critic’s circle. San Francisco, New York, Austin, and all other major cities throughout the USA have an online critics group but not Los Angeles. We wanted to change that and therefore launched the Los Angeles Film Critics Society (LAOFCS) at the end of 2016.

By creating this group, they wanted to ensure that the members of their society are reflective of those who reside in the city of Los Angeles. Diversity is very important in film criticism and they want to make sure that all voices are represented within our group. They also want to embrace members that are finding new ways to criticize film whether that be through video, podcasts, or on social media.

Over the next few years, the Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society is hoping to redefine what it means to be part of a film critics group by having a year-round presence. Most film critic circles at the end of each year begin to appear to discuss their favorite films of the year. They wanted to create a film critics group that would openly discuss film throughout the year and not just during award season.
