I feel like now’s a good time to remind everyone just how crazy I am.
That is, I’m not sure anyone truly knows the depths of my insanity when it comes to movies. You know about me and the Oscars, that’s pretty out in the open. But unless you read this site consistently or dig around, you don’t necessarily know what it is I’m working on at any given time. So let’s remedy that.
I’m not referring to what’s going up on the site, because, for the tens of you who even bother to read this, this year’s been a wasteland for new material. Those of you who actually know me on a personal level know why that is. I was supposed to get the Top Ten lists done, and instead only got up to 1989, leaving me 30 to go. Shit happens.

Most people just think, “Oh, Mike, he’s seen everything.” And my response to that is always, “I haven’t. But I’m working on it.” So for the absolutely no one who cares, here’s what I’m working on.
