oh, and another thing…

Another standard email I receive at least several times a week starts out along these lines: “I don’t know if you’ve seen [insert name of current hot movie here]…”

I make no secret of what movies I have seen. Everything I’ve seen gets listed and graded — with a green, yellow, or red light — in the “recent screenings and hot movies” bit in the righthand column. (The odd movie with no light, in the sections running down the top movies at the box office, means I haven’t seen the film so I can’t grade it, but in the name of accuracy in those box office listings, the title has to be there.) All those current theatrical releases also get listed in the current on-the-fly ranking of the year’s movies (the in-progress 2008 one is here). Now, it’s true that I don’t always add movies to the ranking as quickly as they end up in the “recent screenings and hot movies” — and if it happens, as it does from time to time, that it looks like I’ve forgotten to add something to the ranking that’s already got a green, yellow, or red light, then feel free to remind me to do that.

But, you know, there’s no reason not to know whether I’ve seen a recent or upcoming film or not. It’s all right here for you amusement/annoyance/whatever.

You haven’t seen “Kentucky Fried Movie” yet.

I don’t rank movies outside of the current year’s theatrical releases, so you can’t know that for sure one way or another. :->

MaryAnn, I see from your FAQ that you may or may not review every film that makes it onto your annual rankings list. I totally understand that. However, while I do not doubt that Postal may be that very worst film of the year, I do doubt that you don’t have anything interesting to say about it. I hope that by the end of the year, you will at least find time to give a proper review to the film in Last Place, assuming nothing else comes along deserving of that very special honor. Or is Postal so soul-crushingly awful that to waste words on it is more than it deserves?
