Me, the Critic

I’m a frequent moviegoer. Perhaps with the right education I might’ve become a movie critic. Instead, I just see as many different movies as I can and place them into one of three columns:

  1. Movies that stink
  2. Movies that don’t stink
  3. Movies I love and will pay to see again and again.

Column #2 boasts the largest number of films. I’m fairly forgiving, and if I can find anything amusing or endearing about a movie it earns a “Movies that don’t stink” berth. 

Honestly, not too many movies get a spot in column #1. Occasionally I’ll come across something that has no redeeming qualities such as Eyes Wide Shut which tolled the death knell for Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman’s marriage and might’ve been ok if it had been even slightly arousing. 

  
I saw it after having imbibed one too many alcoholic beverages, and ended up giggling throughout the film. It was only much later that I realized it wasn’t a comedy. Oops! Definitely a column #1 kind of film.

Similarly, column #3 is fairly small. Episodes IV, V, and VI of the Star Wars saga are founding members (episode I narrowly missed being placed in column #2) along with the three original Indiana Jones movies. 

 

A man who deserves his own category.
 
On Wednesday I saw the latest installment in the James Bond franchise, Spectre. Good heavens, Daniel Craig is the bomb. Even if the movie stunk, which it doesn’t, I’d put it in column #2. Talk about redeeming qualities! Whew! And, if I can’t stop thinking about those qualities, Spectre might just get moved into column #3.

  
Peace, people!

  1. It takes about 2 hours to donate platelets and Netflix supplies moves. I see all my movies when I donate. Does two things which shows what a multitasker I am. One gets me to donate regularly and two saves me the price of a movie ticket! No popcorn but all the juice I can choke down 🙂

  2. Have you seen The Martian yet? It’s a #2.5 for me.

    Oh, I agree about Nicole Kidman (and little Tom). The worst movie I EVER saw with her in it was The Stepford Wives. Ugh. It’s in a category of its own, maybe -1.

  3. Finally! Someone to share with! No one went to the movie with me, I was all alone, what a shame. And the move don’t stink indeed. I have seen all of them, 50-something, and I will go and see them until the day I die.
