2017 Year End Awards Extravaganza!

The time of year is nigh when critics dump their 10 Best Lists on the world, and the various organizations and guild awards are awarded.  And, being a person who never finds a trend he won’t at least dabble in, I’m joining the fray.  But, rather than do a 10 Best List, like most individual critics do, I’m going to do mine as an actual award, similar to a critics group.  Why do it this way?  Because it’s my blog and I do things my way over here.[1]

Better, because I’m not a professional critic, and do everything here at my own expense, you should give what I have to say extra gravity.  After all, I did not see any of these films via critics screeners or free screenings, and I did not get anything labeled “For Your Consideration”.  Rather, I actually paid my own money to see all these films in  a theater – for the most part – and since I have skin in the game, that makes my opinions more valid than the rest.

Nobody’s Perfect — The Best Picture Project

front-cover-01So, a little more than a year ago the complete, collected, and re-edited Best Picture Project appeared in book form.  It sold like gangbusters, which is to say, it barely sold at all.  But, I don’t necessarily write to be paid, I write to give me joy, and so if anybody bought it and enjoyed it, great!

And then…

And then I was notified of a comment on a post on this site — to the post regarding The Sound of Music, a Best Picture Project entry.  The comment?  Apparantly I forgot to include The Sound of Music in the book.  It took about two minutes for me to confirm that, yes, I did forget it.

Well, you’ll be pleased to know that everything should be fixed now.  I revised the Kindle version of the book right quick and you should be able to get that one now.  The paperback version has also been corrected but that might take a couple days for all the kinks to work out between the old version and the new.

Nevertheless, feel free to purchase now and, as before — if you find an error in it, let me know, because I fix that shit.

Thanks!
