What Makes a Movie?I love Spielberg but this is dumb. Fake qualifying runs were common in the business for years. There were arthouse movies that had fake qualifying runs because they knew their movies couldn’t work in theaters. Go »
Driving Mr. GreenI haven't seen Green Book, so I can't say from my own experience. I will see it someday, regardless of the controversy. Just because the movie is problematic and clueless in its choices about race does not mean that it is entirely without merit. Go »
Harry Potter and the Definitive EndingAlso: I'm well aware that this is all easy for me to say because I'm not a particular fan of Harry Potter. The movies and theme parks were fun, but I don't follow the series closely and I have no interest in any further expansions. If it was a series that Go »
Oscars 2019I had not noticed that diversity in Best Director, but you're right; good point. And that's good and healthy for the industry, I think. Part of the reason that Green Book flew under the radar for Best Picture had to be the lack of a correspond Go »
Hemming HistoryFor what it's worth, I didn't have a problem with you saying that. He deserves scorn for owning slaves and for raping them. But he also deserves some degree of reverence for his contributions to modern democracy. Go »

Last RightsGood! I'm not the only one who thinks that's crazy. :-) I guess the rationale is that multiple people might want the last piece, so if anyone must be deprived of it, at least we're all equally deprived of it? Go »
What's on the Ol' Boob Tube?After watching the first season, I am of mixed opinion about Chef's Table. The show looks absolutely stunning, and the music is often exquisite as well. But the show is ultimately only as Go »
Shoot to ThrillChris, I thought if I took you out, that you'd take me out right away, so I was hoping to lay low and watch everyone else take each other out and then pounce! Didn't work. Oh well, third is probably better than I deserved! Go »
Fall 2018Thanks, guys, for the nice comments! I'm thrilled to have a second victory! It was a tight race to the end and, frankly, Eric, I thought the win was yours, particularly since I was current on answers and you still had six to play. Go »
