Inside the mind of a film critic

This week I watched The Reader, The Hours, and Notes on a Scandal. I enjoyed all of them and was beginning to suspect that I have no filter when it comes to watching films.

Then I decided to watch a film that Phil was raving to me about called Troll 2. In hindsight it is obvious that after watching the first three films I mentioned I would not be receptive to Troll 2. There is a documentary based on it called Best Worst Movie. One sign that Troll 2 is a bad movie is that there aren't even trolls in it -- they're goblins.

- "What did you do on the weekend?"

- "Oh, well, I watched The Reader, The Hours, Notes on a Scandal, and Troll 2."

- "Whooooa. Kate Winslet, Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett -- amazing! But who's in Troll 2?"

- "Goblins."

    I loved The Hours and Notes on a Scandal, but I have yet to see The Reader, I don't know what I'm waiting for.
