The RW Quarterly, Vol. I - Issue 2

Wow, another 13 weeks has practically flown by! Looking back since the last Quarterly, I was thinking of all the problems that have kept me from reviewing more films. Friends know my pesky chronic illness can sometimes sap my drive to write. Also, my regular gig as Government Mule has been tested as the job adds more and more saddlebags 'cross my swayback. Then my totally reliable home internet connection has been the culprit to blame in recent weeks. Overall though, I think I just watch way more movies than I can write about without going friggin' insane! This quarter I racked up 48 movies, which makes it seem like I was draggin' my feet at the beginning of the year (especially when you add in all the TV shows I watch - new and on DVD!)

Like last quarterly, if you see something I haven't reviewed that you'd like to hear my two cents about, let me know and I will add it to the review queue. Items italicized in blue will be receiving a review within the next few weeks, so check back.

  1. Wouldn't be cool if the government paid you to do movie reviews???

  2. You're a part of the band Gov't Mule? I did not know that. ;)

    Hey, you're reviewing the flicks you've seen in the theater. If I tried to write a review from every movie I watched (DVD, cable, etc), I'd never catch my breath, much less catch up.

  3. @Fox: If only the Gov't had such a thing as a film criticism Department. Now that'd be gov at work for the people. I guess we'll have to settle for the MPAA in the meantime.

    @Fletch: I'm just their roadie a la Wayne's World 2 Farley.

    As you see, I am weeks behind in just theater-related reviews. I couldn't fathom being prolific enough for everything I see. Ebert makes it look so easy. If I ever catch up, maybe I can start contributing to the LAMBScores again.
