The holidays are here (more or less) and MAD About Movies will be on holiday hours the rest of the year.  Rather than the regular schedule, with five posts per week, I’ll be posting on a somewhat irregular schedule.  I plan to feature some late-2010 movies during the next few weeks, with probably a few Christmas films in the mix.

Enjoy the season and see you again soon.

Movie Minutes
November 10–23, 2010


under the weather_2

Feeling under the weather today.  See you tomorrow.

UPDATE (11/11):
I said I’d see you tomorrow, so here I am.  For a moment.  That dark cloud (in a gender-appropriate pic this time) is still hovering overhead, and sunny skies may still be a few days off.  Here’s hoping the forecast improves.  The plan right now is to return Wednesday and pick up the week’s theme where I left off.  Santé.

UPDATE (11/17):
I have good news to report.  I am feeling better.  Though not yet a hundred percent, I seem to have finally shaken the bug that put me out of commission the past week.  The not-so-good news, I am suddenly inundated with more things to do than I have time to get to.  So, I’m going to move out my return till next week.  I’ll pick up where I had left off, continuing with the latest theme, films about the newspaper biz.  I look forward to seeing you then.

MAD Movie Minutes
November 1–5, 2010

on hiatus


I’ll be taking some time this week to attend to other business, to refuel, and if all goes according to plan, to see a few movies too.  Your regularly scheduled program will resume next week.  I look forward to seeing you then.

While you’re here visiting the site, I invite you to browse around.  Among the features you may find of interest:

MADness—the Blog
The blog is the site’s semi-daily (or semi-weekly) place for other posts about movies and various items of interest—i.e., whatever may be on my mind.  I do expect to have a few new items up on the blog, though the front page will be idle.

The Vault of Minutes Past
The Vault is the archive of all past posts from the MAD About Movies front page, easy to view on a single page.

MAD Crossword Puzzles
The MAD Puzzles page will be updated on Monday, the 1st, with a new pair of Gram Crackers.  As always, an archive of all puzzles from the past year is available too.

Other suggestions to make good use of your time:

The Local Cineplex
There are some good movies at theaters right now.  Go see them.  Here are three in particular I highly recommend:

  • The Social Network
  • Never Let Me Go
  • Conviction

The Local Ballot Box
Election Day is this week.  You know what to do.  (Remember, Republicans vote Wednesday this year!)
