OK, I've just struggled a lot to get back into the rhythm of doing Monday Movie Posts. I'm not sure whether very many readers care, but I'll try to get back to it. I would blame the GOP debates (which knock out an average of one movie-length time slot a week)...really, I've just been watching other things. I do have a half-finished post about that awful Kelsey Grammer show, so I should finish it one of these weeks. I have another excuse...my DVR died suddenly a couple weeks ago, and with it a couple dozen or so movies I had saved to watch for Monday Movie Posts. But it's not much of an excuse, since TCM keeps showing at least one a week that I could do, and, well, I haven't, yet.
I should get to the point -- if you really want some very brief movies stuff from me, head over to Salon, where they've put together a slideshow of favorite "election entertainment" from various people and they were nice enough to ask me to participate. I don't know that it's really my favorite as such, but I picked "The Great McGinty" and also mentioned "Hail the Conquering Hero" -- both are movies I've highly recommended here in the past. Take a look at what others picked. I'm very skeptical of "Primary Colors" (the movie), although I've never seen it or read the book, so I could be wrong and I'm not a huge fan of "The Best Man," but other than that there are lots of good picks to check out. Might as well open it up to everyone: I was asked to "name [my] favorite election- or campaign-related movie, novel, or TV show." Got one?
