And so begins the holiday season…

I've been a puppet, a pirate, a pauper, a poet, a pawn and a king, not necessarily in that order. My first major movie memory was being at the drive-in at about 1 1/2 yrs. old seeing "Sayonara" so I suppose an interest in film was inevitable. (For those scoring at home- good for you- I wasn't driving that evening, so no need to alert authorities.)Writer, critic and confessed spoiler of women, as I have a tendency to forget to put them back in the refrigerator. My apologies.

    You mean … he wasn’t a professional critic? How did I miss that?

    • It’s probably just a matter of infinitesimal degrees, with Eb being critical without being a critic. He should have trusted his first instincts and not fallen prey to the whims of an undigested bit of beef. Outside of the seasonal movie wrap-ups on “Greater Boston”, where would such ludicrous critical standards apply?

        USA Today. Garry and I often question if the review we are reading means the reviewer saw a different movie or TV show than we saw because it appears to have nothing to do with it. Praise or panning, it comes from another dimension. Much like Scrooge’s vaporous pals.
