First Thought of the Day 7.18.08

My first thought carries over from yesterday. I'm surprised that I'm not sweating bullets and worrying that people don't like King's Highway, especially with two awful reviews on Netflix ("worst movie ever" was one of them). Am I so far removed from the movie after it being so many years that the criticism can easily roll off my back? Have I matured enough to take any one person's opinion with a grain salt (I mean, come on, "worst" movie? Have they seen Navy S.E.A.L.S or The Forgotten?)? Or do I just not give a shit because I know that the acting really is good and the editing by Vill is outstanding?

Maybe I'm blinded because I've lived with it so long. Still, I've had people I REALLY respect commend me on the movie, people who would not hesitate to tell me if the movie really was crap. People are entitled to their opinion. At least they watched the movie, right (except the one reviewer who was afraid they wouldn't get to minute 13).

Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I had pre-ordered King's Highway from Turner Classic Movies and I am still awaiting the movie's arrival. I called again and was told they are still waiting for the movie.
Maybe I should cancel the order and order from somewhere else?

That's very surprising. I know people who have ordered their copies from Amazon and already received them . There are also many used copes available, too. I would cancel the order and go through Amazon. And if that doesn't work, let me know and I'll send you one myself.
