Happy New Year, everyone! Thank you for sticking with Critical Writ in our first year, and we hope you'll be with us for years to come.
Have a fun weekend, drive safe, and get 2017 started on a brighter note!
|This one's for you, 2016. Good riddance to a bad year.|
- Vanity Fair has a fabulous article about why so many of Carrie Fisher's fans have become outraged on her behalf over various tributes to her this week. The article covers Cinnabon, Steven Martin, and how Carrie felt about being a sex symbol (hint: she didn't like it, not one bit).
- E! News has their list of 21 films that made us love going to the movies in 2016. Despite the craptacular nature of 2016 in general, it has been a pretty damn good year for movies. Check out the list.
If you're still sore over recent outcomes of the democratic process, perhaps you might consider benign dictatorship? Then you could be like Aurora, looking for a "Conqueror."
— Critical Writ has a super-duper strict comment policy that specifies a single rule above all others: live and let live, preferably without horribly personal insults.
