FROM THE INBOX
How's it going? Hope you've had a great weekend.
I want to recognize my friend and frequent commenter Ray Milner for conquering the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die and not just one edition, but every film that's ever appeared in ANY of the the editions. I hope Ray feels how I imagine I'll feel when I finally finish. Ray's a smart man when it comes to everything, but film especially and this only cements that this is one guy you want to talk to if you have a movie related question.

NON-1001 Movies I Must See Before You Die - As seen in May 2014
1) Blue Jasmine (2013 - Woody Allen) 7/10 - Being a humongous fan of Woody Allen, I figured it was about time I pick up a copy of Blue Jasmine and see what all the hubbub was about. I (as I usually am) was left out in the cold around Oscar time when all the awards shows were handing Cate Blanchett little gold statues. I have to admit, I was skeptical of all the praise. The last time a Woody Allen film got this much praise it was Midnight in Paris, a movie I later saw and didn't care for. However, I quickly realized that the praise, especially that which was showered upon Cate Blanchett for her performance, was well deserved.
