When friendship reared its ugly head
This is a cute (but short) feature. I’ve always loved skimming old Entertainment Weeklys for the movies they hyped to hell and back or pegged as Oscar hopefuls, only to never mention again after they were seen to be shit. (To wit: they had three (3) Matrix covers in 2003)
In the end I only saw two of these movies, Sky Captain and Van Helsing. My practically Kucinichian dating abilities are to blame. A whole bunch of times, I “saved” movies for dates that either never happened or got cancelled. So my yearly roundup of movies seen will be slightly truncated next week.
