can't wait for MAGIC MIKE...i guess we already know who the Film Bitch Award for Best Sex Pot of 2012 will be ;)

Excited to see what Potter has in store for her next film.I personally rank her right up there with Jane Campion.They're very different,but equally good in my book.Although this cast of names (surprised the Bening consideration wasn't noted) is starting to remind me of The Man Who Cried,the one Potter film I could not stand...I am doubly cautious of it not being good because of the tasteless puns reviewers will make of its title.

Nathaniel...are you going to comment on Meryl's presentation at The Kennedy Center Honors?

Magic Mike could get a 0% score on Rotten Tomatoes and I will probably still be seeing it opening weekend.

December 28,2011 | Unregistered CommenterJohn T

JOHN T -- it probably will.You know how critics can be with certain demographically-targetted movies,no matter the quality.

I find that I can't take a top 10 list seriously if it doesn't mention "Weekend"and/or "Drive."With that said,Guy Lodge's list is the best I've seen.
