It's not just a name, it's an institution. Actually, it's just a newsletter.

Is this just a movie site or what?

I recommend books on this site too. I swear. It's just ... summer ends and with it the sequel-heavy, explosion-laden blockbuster season, then finally fall begins, and with it hope begins again, at least when it comes to Hollywood product  it does. Movies with half a brain and a smidge of soul start making money and getting played in the multiplexes with those plushy great seats and large, curved screens. It's exciting. It's fun. It's fun therefore I blog. But I love the book too. I do. And have I got a post for you. What has to be the funnest novel I know. And yet written by a literary superstar. That's next. A book recommendation. A novel first published in 1988 that includes a movie star, a one-armed man, a 12 year-old girl, a fancy hotel and a trip to Hawaii.
