After a mini-rant about Justice League (they just don’t love their characters enough) this afternoon, a friend looked at me and said “You should’ve been a film critic,” and I said “Well…” and started thinking about my old friend, this blog. I still love the movie business and talk about it all the time, and while I don’t watch as many movies as I once did, I’d like to get back into a more regular habit of it. Thus, we’re back? Maybe? No promises.
My last post here was in 2013. It seems like an awful lot has happened in the world of movies since then, for sure. That ought to mean that I could find plenty to chat about, if I put my mind to it. The Marvel Cinematic Universe! New Star Wars movies! Strides in film representation! The #MeToo era, additions and subtractions to favorites lists, new things to love and complain about. I even try to watch a little television these days (I will talk to you about Legion all. day. long.)
So like I said, no promises. I’m planning to catch Ocean’s 8 this weekend so maybe we’ll start there. Or, if there’s something in particular you actually want my two cents’ worth on, give me a shout! My Top Five list needs updating, so stay tuned and we’ll see what transpires.
