Shameless showing off

Yes, it's that time of year again: The DVD screeners have started arriving. Life is good. Wonder if the extended Leydon/Tucker clans will want to polish off the Thanksgiving Day feast with a look at In the Valley of Elah?


Of course I'm on the side of the writers in the current WGA strike. After all, I'm a writer, right? And just in case you've ever wondered what it would be like in a world without writers...

Me on TV yet again

Talkin' 'bout American Gangster and Lions for Lambs. (Actually, the photo above has me getting hammered at last week's Denver Film Festival, and has nothing whatsoever to do with my reviews, but never mind.)

Bloggus interruptus

I continue to slave away at my master's thesis, ever mindful of next week's drop-dead deadline. As a result, there will be few if any postings here until after Thanksgiving weekend at the earliest. On the other hand, I may have a new movie-review clip on YouTube soon. Please stay tuned for further developments.

Coincidence or... ?

I continue to slave away at finishing my master's thesis -- yep, that's right, that's why I haven't been posting lately -- and yesterday I finally finished a chapter on Rosemary's Baby. And then, this morning, while taking a break from my work, I see this. Scary stuff, kids.

All I want for Christmas

Dear Santa: Please send me one of these, so I'll never again have my moviegoing experiences ruined by rude cellphone users.
