Wanna see a dead body? Alright then, what about a good movie?

Ah, February. Cold weather, no decent holidays & sludge puddles on the walk to work. What more could you ask for?

I'm glad you asked. Turner Classic Movies goes all award-y in February. Every movie shown is an Oscar nominee or winner. They've done this for years, and it's always the best time to tune in. This year, each day in February is hosted by a famous film character. Today it's Lolita (that tramp). Each character has a blog - along with room for comments.

An established media company jumping on the web log bandwagon purely for marketing value? Yes. Fun? Hells yes.

It's also great for useless trivia ... what do 12 Angry Men, Peyton Place, Stand By Me and JFK have in common?

(Nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay!)
