Well, it’s that month again.

With all the festivals that have been going on, we’re starting to get a taste of what films are good and what films aren’t. I can’t wait to be in the thick of awards season, if for no other reason than to distract me from all of the crazy things going on in the news. And that’s what movies are all about. Escapism.

And by the way, I know I haven’t been writing a lot of reviews lately. That’s mostly because Hollywood is having a bit of a dry spell. Don’t worry though. Expect to see a lot more reviews this month.
