CRANKY SEZ:  Medical stuff has overwhelmed my ability to continue this site as usual. Mouthing off about movies is what I've been doing, all the way back to Compuserve Forums in 1993.

For those coming in late . . . The spinal cord damage disabling my leg has also taken its toll on my back and shoulders (nasty muscle spasms). I had hoped -- this is as of last December -- that reducing my work load to one film a day would keep the site almost current, even as the Christmas Day glut of all the Oscar wannabe releases approached. A winter storm that hit coincidentally with the opening of Rogue One) knocked me for a loop and, in the middle of Martin Scorsese's Silence, the spasms apparently were so severe as to knock me unconcious -- so I am told by the people who helped me afterwards. That was the middle of December. And that pretty much was the end of any chance to do this gig with anything close to what is needed to provide you with the kind of info a critic is supposed to provide to readers.

Have we mentioned that politicians are trying to outlaw the painkiller which has kept us alive since 1998? The glut of Oxycodone (aka Percocet) prescriptions is not just because users are getting high from the stuff.-- although we never have. We live in pain 24/7. That's what the pills are for -- It is because all the cokeheads of the 1980s now have careers and families and assets they couldn't afford to lose if they got busted with powder. So, the cokeheads moved to pills. After all, no one thinks twice if an aging person takes a pain pill. We know it is true because we've had to cut off our ex-cokehead friends, all of whom would sidle up to us and say : "You couldn't possibly need all that Percocet; good friend good buddy good pal. My migraine headache is just killing me. You can spare half a dozen pills, right?" We swear on a bible that that junkie-like bit of begging is true. Those friends are no longer friends.

I can sit up to write about what I've seen. I'll do what I can. For the last 25 years . . . Thank You for your support.

The complete list of 2017 Oscar® nominees and winners is here. We still insist that Hidden Figures is the best of the year. Never, though, could we have forseen the surprising screw-up when Warren Beatty announced the wrong recipient for Best Picture at the broadcast's end (He was given the wrong envelope).. For those that went to bed early, Moonlight was awarded Best of the Year honors. not La La Land
