Thanks Gus for the invite. The reviewer I seem to agree with the most is Michael Medved from Seattle. We just seem to like the same movies I guess. However, there are several really good writers out there.

My favorite critics are Anthony Lane of the New Yorker Manohla Dargis and A O Scot of the New York Times. I also read Roger Ebert and others.

I read critics not so they can tell me what to see - but to get a sense of the movie and then make up my own mind. The main reason I would not see a movie is if it contains things I've already seen a hundred times before.

Happy BD, James Agee!

I don't even read critics anymore. The best reviews for me were (sadly, past tense) from the Netflix member reviews that were tagged with XX%, the percentage that the Netflix computations said I and the reviewer were alike. I could go to any movie on Netflix, and just read the reviews of people who were 60% or more like me, and skim the lower percentage reviews. It wasn't foolproof, but it was damn good.

Do you think that will ever come back?

"So showing it on Showtime should mean there will be lots of nudity, which was always favoured by Lynch. So who to cast: why none other than Jennifer Lawrence of course. "
