July was a bit of a down month. I might still sneak in another movie this evening, which would bring me to 22 total from The List, plus the last Harry Potter movie which will probably never make the list.
News #1: Results are in from my poll. 85% of those polled believe in some way or another I should start a podcast, so it looks like that will soon be in the works. Four of you (and you know who you are) said you'd be interested in co-hosting. If that was you, please contact me via email (email@example.com). I'm thinking bi-weekly.
News #2: The 8th edition of The 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die has been announced for September release. The word is that a whopping 23 films have been added to this new edition. Since the cover is Natalie Portman from Black Swan, we can pretty much rest assured that it's one of the 23. The other 22 are a mystery. I have some suspicions (The Social Network, The King's Speech, Inception), some hopes (Restrepo, Exit Through the Gift Shop, The Illusionist) and some fears (Antichrist, Buried). What do YOU think deserves placement? Which movies from 2009 and 2010 do you think should be canonized as officially "must-see"? Got some ideas? That's what the comments are for.
