The Lodi Flames varsity football team stopped the Tracy Bulldogs’ opening drive with an Anthony Jory interception and took just five plays to score for an early lead. But that would be the Flames’ only lead, as the Bulldogs scored the next 42 points to post a 42-6 win in front of their homecoming crowd during Friday’s league football showdown at Wayne Schneider Stadium.

It has occurred to me that I discuss my personal goings-on a bit less than my fellow News-Sentinel columnists do, but in the interest of partial disclosure, I must confess that life has gotten significantly more difficult for me in the past few months. I’ve started a new job that requires many long, grueling, thankless hours in an undesirable environment. The possibility of complete physical and mental collapse is now very real.

This week, we venture even further into “The Cabin in the Woods” with an in-depth examination of the film’s deft deconstruction of gender-based archetypes. I kid, I kid ... as much as it would please me to spend the next many weeks harping on (thus far) the year’s best film, surely it is time to move on.

Technical complications at the “Haywire” screening I attempted
to attend have left me without a film to review this week (we’ll
catch up with that one next time, along with the Liam Neeson
survival thriller “The Grey”). But this is just as well, I suppose,
considering that the recent Oscar nominations have inspired more
controversy than I’ve ever seen associated with the Academy Awards,
and of course I have some choice thoughts about that.

Typically, I spend the first six weeks or so of each new year
playing catch-up with all the Oscar bait that was released around
Christmas. But as it turns out this awards season didn’t produce as
many true prestige pictures as expected, so starting next week
we’ll be returning to new releases with a look at Steven
Soderbergh’s acclaimed action flick “Haywire,” followed by a review
of the Liam Neeson vs. wolves survival thriller “The Grey” (I’ll
also briefly return to the 2011 awards contenders with a piece on
“The Artist,” if it ever opens in the Lodi-Stockton area).

Hope you all enjoyed my top 10 list last week, and gleaned some
useful recommendations. This week I’ll take a very quick look at
“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” which made my “most promising films I
didn’t see” list but ended up being one of the most spirit-crushing
disappointments of the year. I honestly don’t have much to say
about such an empty film, so I suppose I might as well squeeze in
my predictions for the Oscar nominations, set to be announced on
Tuesday, Jan. 24, at which point you will surely marvel at my
peerless prognosticative abilities.
