Not so good . . .

It looks like I need some more work in watching good films. Unfortunately, it doesn't help much that I'm part of a group that specializes in watching the dregs of the cinematic canon.

Yeah, I know. There's a lot of those movies that I keep meaning to see, but then I just don't get around to renting them in the video store.

[Part of the problem is that I don't really enjoy watching many movies--even movies I like--much more than once or twice. So I feel that I'd rather not "waste" the experience by renting it when I'm in a foul mood.]

P.S. Thanks for stopping by!
