I'm a proud member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association.
We give out the annual Critics' Choice Awards -- a celebration of creativity at the movies and a great barometer for the Oscars.
So what's the Critics'Choice seal of distinction? Well, it is a recognition given to new movies receiving a high Critics' Choice Ratings score in the weekly voting.
Specific Critics’ Choice Ratings numbers for current releases or those dating back the past five years are available at www.bfca.org.
So which film just received the Critics' Choice seal of distinction?
Well, mozzy on down! Read More...

I used to hate the classic poem, “Beowulf,” when I was in high school. Our English literature teacher not only forced us to read it but also insisted we memorize parts of the epic, which by the way, is 3,000 lines long.

So, I woke up this morning, sluggish from yesterday's busy workday, and as I opened my email, I saw this nice note from Barabara at Helium.com:
If you check out today’s homepage at www.helium.com, you’ll see your article featured prominently. See yourself in the limelight!"
Helium.com is a wonderful site for writers with wide-ranging topics.
I, of course, write my movie reviews there, and the article Helium chose to put on the front is my critique of "Dan in Real Life."
So, please check out their homepage...scroll down under "MOVIE REVIEWS" and read my article(s)!!!
THANKS BUNCHES AND HAVE FUN!!!!
