No Cabin in the Woods?

mskat40 said...

I'd just like to say - I'm not okay with you taking a hiatus on twitter. I'm tired of the sycophantic entertainment "reporters" that embarrass themselves by falling over one another to kiss the ring of latest actor du jour. I'm thinking of one fanboy from MTV in particular....

You will be missed there, as will the bracing cup of snark you poured into my timeline.

Anonymous said...

I disagree with so much of this. But that's just me. You must not like horror movies cause Cabin in the Woods was fantastic!!

Anonymous said...

You are a gay journalist who is jealous of Krtisten Stewart. She is definitely the best actress of hollywood and "OTR" is the best movie. I bet she will win the Oscars

Krisbian for ever

smokinmonkeydenver said...

You MUST see Once Upon a Time in Anatolia - both J. Hoberman and I agree its the best film of the year (even though it came out last year)

Klown is also pretty great, if you dig that kinda humor.

Nice, comprehensive list.

I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I found this during my search for something relating to this.

This process is usually favoured by people newer to internet marketing and
business, as those who have been running an internet business realise that delivering products manually will not only take
up all of your spare time, but will eventually lead to many disgruntled customers, and a number of customers thinking they've been scammed. With the "information age" well under way, this is not surprising. Writers are aware of the growing popularity of e - Books and how it can help their work reach a global audience.
