Strange Happenings in 2009

I've never really fancied myself a movie critic.  I like what I like, hate what I hate and that's that.  I've also never spent much time caring what other movie critics think or say.  So I dunno what caused me to read Stanley Fish's opinion column "The 10 Best American Movies" in today's NY Times.

His choice for #1 best American movie - "The Best Years of Our Lives"  - would probably be my choice too.  Other VM favorites making his list: "Shane", "Vertigo", "Groundhog Day" and "Double Indemnity".

OK, I may have to rethink this whole movie critic thing.  I made several New Years resolutions, but not THAT one.
