Shameless Advertisement #8 – January

1 01 2010


It’s January.  I’m not crazy about any of the choices this month, so I will probably spend it catching up on 2009’s awards contenders and second viewings.

But that’s just me.  7 of you all found something you wanted to see.  “Leap Year” and “When In Rome” each got one vote, as did “The Spy Next Door.”  To whomever that person may be, I sincerely hope that was a joke.

The two movies that managed to garner multiple votes were both movies that I lambasted in my preview.  So how did I choose?  As some author once said, “When you have to choose between two evils, choose the one that you’ve never tried.”  This philosophy is to the dismay of “Youth in Revolt,” which looks about as “been there, done that” as Michael Cera.

So, the winner of January’s shameless (or shameful) advertisement is…


In my January preview post, I raved:

And just in case the latest vampire movie has left your local theater by January, Hollywood has “Daybreakers” for you. This seems to have a lot less shirtlessness and a lot more blood and gore, so that might limit its appeal a tad.

You see where I stand.

But to those two readers who picked “Daybreakers,” thank you for sharing your honest opinion with me.  Feel free to comment too.

Enjoy your month (even if you choose to spend it watching “The Spy Next Door”) at the movies!
