International Online Film Critics Poll declares 3rd edition winners


The Master is picking up some serious Oscar momentum especially in the acting categories if the 3rd Edition of the International Online Film Critics Poll is to be believed; however, the cult tale believed to be inspired by author and Sciencetology founder L. Ron Hubbard was overshadowed by a British spy who coolly and methodically uncovers a Russian mole in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

    Yikes, where have I been because I haven’t watched any of these movies! I am teased a lot by my coworkers at DISH for not getting out enough, and now I think that they might be right. I noticed that I can stream Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy to my TV using the Blockbuster @Home app on my DISH Hopper. I didn’t even know that Joaquin Phoenix was doing movies again so I’m looking forward to watching
