My pal Nathaniel R. tells me he thought of me when he posted this.
I told him: Hee hee.
(sorry to hijack this comment, but…) Ok, so I have been a long time reader of your site and I love your comments on movies (naysayers be damned), but, and this is the first time I’ve written, I have to ask when you are going to review Mirrors. I saw the preview for it in The Dark Knight and I have to admit, my jaw was on the floor in anticipation. However, for some reason, I told myself not to go see it until you reviewed it. Consistently, you and I have had the same opinion regarding movies, and this is the first time I have ever wanted to see one BEFORE i go to the movie… but it sits… over there —> with no link and no colored dot. I’m a sad, sad, panda.
I’m not going to review *Mirrors.* It wasn’t screened for critics and I have no desire to see it, and it has no potential for being an important or noteworthy film, so I’m skipping it.
Mirrors looks like somebody watched the Ring…took out the only good part of it (the video tape urban myth) and replaced the TV with a mirror. Also, I hear, lots of blood and violence if that is your thing…personally I applaud your skipping it.
Well then… thank you for your response. Thank you, Ryan, for your reply as well. Take care!
Ouch. Shot down the sad panda. Now he’s even sadder.
Getting back to the actual subject of this post:
I must confess that when I first read that post on Nathaniel’s site, I thought of you too, MaryAnn.
I don’t know why. It’s like a mystery. ;-)
