I started "grading" films in 2002 and I've struggled with it. Sometimes I love it. Sometimes I hate it. Sometimes I'm lenient (2002). Sometimes I'm totally harsh (2003). Often I change my mind... at least when it comes to the plus or the minus. But mostly I find it interrupts the natural flow of letting a movie age for me. And I hate coming to the end of the year going. OK... well this is my top ten because the grade says it will be! I hate being pinned down. You may say: But you're the one giving the grades. But I say 'Oh, do shut up --I'm a Gemini. I'm allowed to do this.' I'm allowed to rebel against The Man (myself) when he tries to box me in. So, now whenever I have not totally decided I shall list two grades... because snap judgments are not what I'm about. I need the movies to percolate a little.
So take it for what it's worth.
In other news... please do not be shy about commenting here on the blog. I don't only write for myself... and I know you're reading. I have statistics ;) If you don't comment I may think the latest entry totally bored you. Would I be correct?
