Well, lookee here! It’s a new “Snide Remarks” column, bearing the title “Leaving the House, and Why I Don’t Want To.” Perhaps you will enjoy reading it. There’s only one way to find out.
In other news, we’re starting a new occasional feature at Film.com called “Eric’s Ten-Year Itch,” in which I re-watch a movie that I reviewed exactly 10 years earlier and discuss how my views — and how the movie world, and society in general — have changed since then. First up is a re-examination of “Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace,” which was released 10 years ago tomorrow, if you can believe that.
For now, “Eric’s Ten-Year Itch” will appear in place of “Eric’s Time Capsule” on occasional Mondays, with the aim of eventually replacing the Time Capsule altogether. I hope you find it interesting, or at least not irritating.
