No, this is not a movie review. I don’t know of any movie called “Bedrest,” but if there is one, I’d probably like to see it.

Truth be told, I’d love to see any movie I have a chance to see, because at the very moment this post is scheduled to appear I am undergoing surgery for scoliosis.

I wish I didn’t have to, because it means that for the rest of the summer, I’ll sound like I’m talking to customer service. “I’d like to speak to a human being!” Who knows how many times I’ll shout that while I’m glued to the couch?

If you have a movie recommendation, or if you know me personally and want to stop by and say hey, I’d greatly appreciate it. I’m glad I’ll be able to sit on a couch and watch movies after some time, but I also don’t want to be isolated from humanity.


I couldn’t find the spinal tap scene from the banned version of The Exorcist. And I’m not getting spinal tap, anyway. Just back surgery. But these next few months will be their own horror movie.

And if there’s a movie in theaters you know I want to see, please don’t tell me how it was until it’s on Blu-Ray. I might have to enact corporal punishment if you boast about how you saw Pacific Rim or Blue Jasmine, and I didn’t because my back won’t let me sit in a movie theater.

Also, I hope for you to see as many movies as possible. Let me know I’m still alive and I’m not in some post mortem hallucination. Take some of my recommendations, that is, and better yet, let me know what you thought.

Expect reviews of BrΓΌno and Django Unchained tomorrow. If you’re curious about anything else in the near future, I encourage you to stay posted on the “Coming Soon” page.
