1/13 Mark Your Calendar for Weird Holidays Did you know there are fun - or just plain odd - holidays for every day of the year? This week Edmund brings you a calendar full of films that tie into some of these quirky commemorations including National Spaghetti Day with Cloudy, with a Chance of Meatballs, National Kitten Day with Keanu, Bad Poetry Day with Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and more.

1/20 Hidden Gems - Over-looked movies This week Edmund is uncovering cinematic Hidden Gems - movies that are wonderfully written, brilliantly directed and scored and perfectly acted - but most people may not have seen. From Dunkirk to Werewolf by Night, The Great Escaper and more, it’s a treasure trove of movies and music.

1/27 The History of the World According to Hollywood Edmund has a “history lesson” as only Tinseltown could tell it this week with The History of the World According to Hollywood. Take a cinematic look and listen - with a lot of literally license – at momentous events and people throughout time with films including One Million Years BC, Troy, The Vikings and more. That’s no documentary… it’s entertainment!
