Hal’s Film Picks

Posted by on Tue, February 8th, 2011 at 4:00 pm


Hey everyone, Hal from Team Swagbucks here – I’m going to be sharing movies with you each week – some of them are favorites of mine, some of them are films you may have overlooked. I’m starting with a Coen Brothers classic – the film that was my favorite before True Grit came along.

While the Coens are known for the quirky, they also do period films really well – in fact, the majority of their films are period films, even if that period of time took place 10 years ago. Their idea to set Homer’s The Odyssey in the Depression-era south was nothing short of brilliant. Superior screenwriting, directing, cinematography and stellar performances from George Clooney, John Turturro and Tim Blake Nelson (among many others) combine to make O Brother, Where Art Thou? an unforgettable film. The real star of this movie may be the soundtrack, a collection of early blues, bluegrass, country and gospel really help to immerse you in the time of the movie.

You can snag a digital download of O Brother, Where Art Thou? for just 1299 Swag Bucks in the Swag Store – that way you can load it onto your iPod, iPad or just keep it on your computer and watch it there. It’s a real classic.

Which Coen Brothers film is your favorite? Tell me in the comments.
