    Check out my reviews for two of the best films of the year - Minari and Nomadland. I also take a closer look at the similarities and differences between the two films and examine how they shine a lot on American culture and the quest for the American Dream.

Multiply that times the 15 they require you to do per month and that's dozens of hours I could be spending on my own writing.. I'm thinking I'm going to pass on the opportunity.
    Congratulations Ricky! It does sound like a lot of work, but like Feev said it could help lead to other potential opportunities. I guess it all depends on what your plans are down the road. Do you have to stay with them for a set about of time?

    Update: I thought about it for a few days and ultimately decided to pass on it. For all the work it would be, I just wasn't excited enough about it.

    Agreed. If you're not feeling it then you don't need to waste your time with it. And at that point it wouldn't even be enjoyable.

    Check this guy out. He does "Top 20" lists for Netflix and Amazon and I've watched 5 or 6 of his recommendations so far and have another 5 or so to be viewed. Let me know what you think. I thought he was pretty good.




    This video is for "Amazon Prime", but he does other streaming services as well.

    He mentions Compliance, I know a few of us were pushing hard for that film in our 2010s tournament.

    This video also made me realize I never finished watching Murder Party. Must have been pretty forgettable.

    Great. More people killed in the 4 movies than in the Vietnam war. I'll probably view it, but I'm getting assassin fatigue.

    I don't think I'll ever get tired of John Wick movies. As long as they remain slick, stylish, and keep coming up with creative ways to have Reeves disperse carnage I'm down.

    I just watched “Dolemite is my name”. Outstanding.

    It dragged a bit in places, but otherwise it was a funny, feel good movie. And Eddie Murphy was perfect as Rudy Ray Moore.

    I had previously seen Dolemite, and Petey Wheatstraw, so seeing story of the man behind these outrageously entertaining movies was a real joy.

    A great video essay about The Last Unicorn, a relatively little known 1980s animated film that I really wish had gone on deeper in our 1980s tournament (hopefully some have since checked it out, if they never seen it):

    That was one of the best things they've put out all season. I actually laughed out loud when I saw that.

    "She needs seagull sounds, gray air and long, rocky walks."

    After watching the Sundance film The World to Come, it really hit me that there are a shitload of these kinds of films.

    I haven't watched SNL in a long time. It just so happened the hotel I was staying at in Calistoga had Dish with the East Coast NBC feed on (8:30 PM instead of 11:30 PM). The bit was not only hilarious , but dead on.
