die hard is a xmas movie | by maryann johanson

question of the day: Are you an opinion-maker among your friends when it comes to movies?

It’s Friday, which means new movies opening — lots of new movies, if you’re in New York or Los Angeles, more than even a dedicated film critic like me could ever see. But most people won’t go to the movies this weekend: most people, if they ever see anything new opening today, will wait for DVD or premium cable… but most people also have a friend who’s “crazy about movies” or who “knows everything about movies” or “see everything” whom they turn to for advice about what’s worth seeing.

Are you an opinion-maker among your friends when it comes to movies? Are you the one they turn to for advice on what to see? If you are, how to feel about that? Do you enjoy sharing your perspectives on films? Do you wish everybody else would do their own homework?

You can probably guess my answer to that question: If I ever stop talking about movies, it’ll be because I’m dead. Unless I can manage to be a head in a jar à la Futurama — then I’ll keep talking about movies even after I’m dead.

(If you have a suggestion for a QOTD, feel free to email me.)
