Opinions vary. I'm sad there isn't a critic alive I follow with any enthusiasm. I used to have many.

Charles Champlin of the L.A. Times and Roger Ebert of (well, you know) were two critics that I could always count on.  I don't have any now.  I'm not really sure why that is.

However, I still love going back and living in the world of criticism was at its heyday and seeing what their top ten lists were and how personalized the choices were and how, if put together, they were a better gage of what was great that given year many more times than what films stood the test of time. Sometimes that test separated the greater and sometimes it separated the more entertaining only.

Yea, I love it. It's great to have. There was a month I didn't even go to a theater once and I didn't think twice it wasn't worth it.

Her album is easily my favorite of this year. She’s just great in every way.

Side note: Conor makes an appearance on the album, singing on the song “Would You Rather”.

I hope one day your opinion on Inherent Vice changes, seems to be a vendetta (against a delightful, intricate tapestry)  :oops:

My IV butthurt dissolved in the moment Reynolds met Alma...  My opinion may change one day (fingers crossed) but at least I can relight the candles on my PTA Altar now.

Read the book if you have time. Pynchon is my favourite author!
