Movies: Seen Any Good Films Lately?

11.15.05 - Probably not. The year 2005 has offered not even one film worth talking about. Hollywood wonders why box office receipts are way down, never considering that perhaps their movies suck. These execs blame TV, DVDs, the Internet and other factors in moviegoer decline, but the reality is simply that there is nothing to see.

I used to go to the movies at least once a week for years. This year, alas, I probably haven't seen more than five films. And I'd be hard pressed to recall which ones (the last one, I'm embarrassed to say, was "Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo." Don't hold that one against me; I just wanted to get a glimpse of Amsterdam...)
