At long(ish) last, the top 10 movies I saw in 2010! WARNING SPOILERS. 10. Hausu (House) (saw at the Metro): This is probably the most obscure movie I saw this year, but I would recommend it to you instantly.

While it isn’t […]

I go to the movie theatre a lot. E. works at the fabulous art cinema here in town, and hooks me up from time to time. Also, I use a lot of the free tickets studios send to the store, although those are rarely for movies that are any good. The preview tix are normally for movies that need good buzz before they come out, or for movies that are “nerd-friendly” and desperately hope to […]
