FIVE HOURS LATER…

Whoa. That was a fuckton of quips. Check it if you’re already missing the Academy Awards.

I am going to live-blog the Academy Awards for the Mercury on Sunday. I took approximately 3 hours* out of my very busy day to make everybody this gorgeous invitation.

Between this and That Awkward Moment, I’m not feeling too great about the state of rom-coms.  

I had every intention of not taking the shrill road with this review but I guess that’s where I’m at right now. Can you tell I’m going through some shit?

Or, how to turn a review of an action movie into an essay on kissing hot guys. 

2013 Film Rankings With A Very Limited Scope

If a movie writer does not write a year-end list, is she still a movie writer? I don’t want to take that chance!

As a lowly freelancer at an alt-weekly in a mid-sized city, I take what I can get. I see some really great movies and even more terrible ones. So rather than a best-of list, I’ve ranked the stuff I’ve written about this year from best to worst. 

Note: Wow. There was a lot more bad than good this year.

  1. Jurassic Park 3D 
  2. 20 Feet From Stardom
  3. The To-Do List
  4. Beautiful Creatures
  5. Tlatelolco Summer of 68
  6. Love Is All You Need
  7. The British Arrow Awards reel
  8. Quartet
  9. About Time
  10. The Hangover 3
  11. The Mortal Instruments
  12. Arthur Newman
  13. Safe Haven
  14. The Book Thief
  15. Runner Runner
  16. The Canyons
  17. Now You See Me
  18. R.I.P.D. 

#15 - #18 basically a tie but it was important to me that RIPD was last.

Okay, off to write a lot of pitches. I can’t have another year like this. 

Will you be watching the Macy’s parade in my time zone tomorrow? If yes, watch it with me! I’ll be liveblogging the whole thing over on Blogtown, starting at 9am PST.

I am beyond heartbroken to announce that I did not totally love About Time. Link to my review for the Portland Mercury
