Maybe I'll just write one movie review.

A few weeks ago, I said I wouldn't be writing any movie reviews. Then Wade Kwon asked me to write a review of The Ten for his web site, since Wade is on top of all things Birmingham, and The Ten will be opening Birmingham's Sidewalk Moving Picture Festival next weekend.

So I wrote a movie review. But just for Wade. For this blog, I'll keep to the practice of linking to other reviews.

Speaking of, Death Proof came out on DVD Tuesday. It's not a perfect movie, but it's worth watching just for the awesomeness that is Kurt Russell.

Here's Vern's brilliant (and profane) Ain't It Cool News review.

I'd rather hear a knowledgeable film fan and director talk about why a movie works (or doesn't work) than a jaded critic who luvs the sound of his own voice.

Many thanks for the review! (Chance is only the third person ever to write for my site.)

I don't know, man. Some of them jaded critics really know how to write!

All the same, I very much appreciate the "guest critic" spot on WadeOnBirmingham.com.
