Over at TheOneRing.Net, I'm a guest writer. You don't want to know how many hours I put into this piece (and its sequels), but I'm very proud of the result. Thanks to TORn for running it!
In the meantime, this space should feature, in mid-January, an epic "2011: The Film Year in Review." Yes, 2011, because it takes a full year to catch up to the previous year's obscure movies as they come out on DVD. Last night, for instance, I watched a very satisfying Bollywood road trip epic, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, which ranked #171 at the U.S. box office (my original assertion that it was never released in the US is a function of BoxOfficeMojo's broken search function) and didn't crack the top 235 in Crirtic's Top 10 list mentions. I've tentatively ranked it as my 41st favorite movie of the year--out of 111 that I've seen so far.
The full recap will rank 128 movies, from least good to best, with full information such as Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic, and IMDB and Netflix user ratings ... and a pithy spoiler-free review of each.
Oh, yes, and the long-delayed Part IX of the Attention-Switching Model post. And hopefully, much else.
