A lovely gift, and a lovely surprise.

holiday season is over before it even began
I watch a lot of terrible movies at the behest of this newspaper. Shuddersome movies. Movies that no rational person—let alone a self-respecting film editor—would ever presume the circulation of this paper to have any interest in. Underdog. Alvin and the Chipmunks 2: The Squeakuel. Last Vegas. In the newspaper biz, we refer to these particular areas of specialization as “beats”; in the weather-beaten recesses of my psyche, I call it my “cross to bear.”
But why? Why have my shrewd and insightful musings been exclusively relegated to the Mercury’s celluloid dustbin? The answer to this question is a little complicated, but the short of it is, God blessed me with merely two gifts in this life: the ability to sit silently in the dark for extended periods of time, and complaining. I am like the Michael Jordan of sitting silently in the dark, and the Kerri Strug of complaining. Suffice to say, this skill set has a surprisingly limited list practical of applications. Enter Mercury Film Editor Erik Henriksen, who—having longed regarded me with pity (but not respect—never respect)—charitably continues to apply my unique powers to the worst garbage imaginable. (Also of note: I have it on good authority that—due to a handful of personal and political missteps not particularly suitable for publication—Mercury Editor-in-Chief Wm. Steven Humphrey has begun running an office pool in anticipation of my psychological collapse.) It’s in this spirit of benevolence that Mr. Henriksen has allowed me the opportunity to share some thoughts about terrible cinema in this new Blogtown feature, Movie Masochist.
