Has it really been two years since my editor, Ernie Grimm, called to say, "Hey, Marks, The Reader is thinking of doing a movie blog. Can you start tomorrow?"

May Ten is also the date of the first entry in Travis Bickle's diary. Coincidence? I think not.

Matthew and I have something special worked up, but I'm down with the flu and it will have to wait until Monday. Sorry!


Thanks to all of you who spend a few minutes of your day checking in. Thanks to Jim and Ernie for leaving me alone to do whatever it is that I do. Thank you, Mr. Sanford, for your occasional outbursts of brilliance. And God bless Matthew Lickona for reasons I have neither the skill nor energy to properly express. I blog with giants. Many more happy and healthy!

Quick, Watson, the NuQuil!

Congrats to Mr. Marks and Mr. Lickona for further corrupting the mind of this troubled regular visitor with their troubled writings.

Ahhhhhhhhh yes! You can't blame Hope for this one!

We're here to say we appreciate -- even love -- Scott Marks (now that we know how to navigate the Reader's copious on-line movie reviews and commentary) and hope to read his stuff for many more years. Marks is engaging, knows a lot and is very funny.

Time flies. We're all big Big Screen fans over here. Here's to two more years. (Hopefully more.)
