AR -- duh.of course that's coming back.

The interviews are fascinating for the most part (the stunt guy for Daniel Craig is still my favorite).If I have a comment on the day player pieces,its that I can stop a waiter and get the same thing live,with the exception of the Boxtrolls guy who has a career and experience to bring to the table rather than just luck.That piece offered insight into the process of the film making which is what I personally like to read.

However,if I see a piece posed that doesn't appeal,I just don't read it and wait for the next.I like your blog pretty much as it is and like that you are always trying to find new angles.
