Her: Did you put the chicken away?
Me: Sure did. In my belly.
Her: You, you bad bastard man! You are a terrible person.
Me: Glad to know that you liked it.
I hate seeing Christmas promos before Halloween and in general am majorly opposed to seasonal creep. However I witnessed a new type and am perfectly alright with it. That would be ‘Awards Season Creep.” The Oscars aren’t until what, the end of February? I know they pulled forward in the calendar year but still, the season didn’t use to kick in until late November. Yesterday, September 12th, I received my first invite to a private screening for awards consideration. It was for “Boyhood” and was sent by IFC Films. Bravo, IFC, for getting on it early. Now send me a DVD of the film and I’ll actually watch it. Hope the rest of the studios are paying attention too. Please to send me all of your movies on DVD for free.
