What You Should See
… So most weeks there’s at least one new movie being released, but in the crazy, mixed-up, upside-down world known as the holiday season, especially a season where both holidays fall on the Mondays, sometimes you don’t get what you want. Sometimes you don’t get what you need. And you almost never get what you deserve.
This weekend all I have to recommend is movies that have already released, and of the more recent releases, I’m… I’m… I’m going to have to recommend The Shape of Water. Even though it’s only playing at South Edmonton Common and the Princess. Even though my recommendation might mean those theatres are even busier than they might already have been. Even if that means you and I might end up at the same movie at the same time. And even though I hate crowded theatres.
You see? An already too-busy theatre is the only place to catch The Shape of Water, the best new movie? And I’m recommending that movie instead of some piece of crap like Father Figures? Because I’m too honest to lead you astray? And that honesty might mean a fuller theatre than I want? You see? I never get what I deserve!
Also, Happy New Year.
