I’m starting a new, limited series over at Pajiba to look back at some of the films of 1999. That was a great year for mainstream U.S. movies, and it was also a really good year to be 17 and starting to fall in love with the possibilities of the medium. I’m starting out with The Matrix, because why not, but I’ve got at least a dozen more titles in the hopper.

Man, when “Lost” went to a white screen, I just sat there, wondering how the hell I was going to survive until 2010 (!) to see what happened.
Also, in re: Locke, I gotta say: It feels good to be right. I don’t do a lot of major theorizing about the show, but that one clicked with me back during “Dead Is Dead.”
And finally, because I am a nerd like this, I am already planning my headline theme for next season’s write-ups.

Review: “Glee”

A cute, energetic, funny show with lots of potential. (I hope I was able to convey that in the review; space constraints are killer at work, and 425 words is a “longer” review, which for anyone that knows me is a cruel, cruel joke.)

Those Folks On The Black Rock Are In For A Treat

The first half of the season finale of “Lost” was, predictably, awesome:
