'Tis the Season to be Bleary-Eyed...Watching Films!'

Beware the flood. They arrive daily at our houses by Fed-X and UPS! The Academy (Awards) screener of most of the 2006 films. The Academy knows the truth: the holidays provide free-time for us Academy members--at least freer time than the rest of the year--to watch the literally hundreds of eligible films hoping to be nominated by 5000 or so members...and, if we like them, and vote for them, the producers can increase their 2007 coffers ($$$$) by being able to announce in the ads: "...Nominated for an Academy Award"...or even better..."Academy Award Winner!" So I and the other 5000 members will be watching 2006 films in the theaters and in our studies for the next few weeks...and my blog will reflect that fact: I will have little time to write cogent comments on acting...unless the acting is in one of these films. I be primarily writings comments and reviews of the films I will see (full disclosure: I will not--nor can I assume most others will not--see ALL the films. We do--and must--have a life apart from seeing films! Partners, children, work, sleep demand it. However, be assured: statistical truth will out: enough of us will see enough films, so that, spread out over 5000 responsible members/voters...Justice will be done. The good films will rise to the surface; the bad ones will suffer their deserved fate. As the saying goes..."You can fool some of the people all the time; all of the people some of the time; but you can't fool all of the people all the time."
