Pick the Next Movie Category Contest

Hey, you!  Yes, you. 

I need your votes on which movie category I should write about next.  That's right.  You get to pick what you want to read about.

For each contest I will list three categories by name only.  I won’t include what movies will be in those categories, so hopefully some will be a bit of a surprise.  Just leave a comment saying which one sounds the most interesting to you.  If you are not comfortable leaving a comment here, you can email me at

Ready?  Here are the movie categories to vote for:

  1. Gwyneth Paltrow is British
  2. Great Child Performances
  3. Narrated by Dead People
That’s it.  Just let me know which of the three you want to read about next.  If there are any hanging chads I will be the final judge of which category gets the vote.

Don’t worry if your favorite does not get picked next.  After each set of tips the next three choices will include the two not picked before, plus a new third one.

Here’s a one-time-only sneak peak at some of the categories that will appear in the weeks to come.  (No voting for these yet.) - Before Star Wars; Mess with Your Head; Literature for Teens; Musical Sequences For No Reason; Girl Meets Girl; Could Never Be Made Today; Charlize Theron Does Not Get Naked; Scary, not Gory; Women with Big Guns; Great Chases; Waitaminnit, They Can Act?; Serious Badasses; Dinner and a Movie; Great Fathers; Pretending to Play Themselves; DVD Commentary in Character; First Love is Cute; Anti-heroes; and many, many more.


  1. How about a "Submit Your Favorite Movie" and have you review it? You might get a few you've seen and can post a quick 30 second review. It would be cool to get your reaction to someone how sends in "Space Jam" as their favorite! :)

  2. Thanks for the suggestion. I'd have to decide what to do if the requested movie was not one I had given at least three stars to on Netflix.
