Those Hacks at The Times!

POST #    865

After I watched Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, I wrote, "Don't they have any consideration for those people who have to put movie names on marquees or print movie tickets?" Today, Elvis Mitchell reviews the movie for The NY Times, where he says that the movie has "a title that will frustrate ushers trying to abbreviate it for marquees."

Man, he's getting all Jayson Blair on us, isn't he? Okay, maybe not...but still. I like to yell conspiracy about everything. Anyway, I thought it was a great movie and urge people to go see it. Knock that stupid god movie out of first.

Maybe it just means that you have a knack for such catch phrases-- perhaps the NYT will hire you :P Maybe then their movie reviews will be better.

i tell you, i'm the last person that should be reviewing movies. i don't think i'm critical enough.

I recently recieved the Michel Gondry DVD of many of his music videos. I was very impressed with his creativity, humor and sense of fun. I'm seeing Eternal (is that a good abbreviation?) tonight. I hope it's good. *fingers crossed*
