Consensus Comparison: Spectre, Brooklyn, Spotlight, Wiseman November 7, 2015

The backlog I’ve been trying to finish off since early September still hasn’t been completed. In fact, it’s only getting bigger and more unwieldy every week. There are well over a hundred reviews that have been published in the past two months that I haven’t been able to add yet (mostly for older movies) and I’ve also fallen behind on most film journals since September. Things will probably start calming down starting in January, but I’m really hoping I don’t have to wait that long to add everything I want to add.

Your Film of the Week is currently #4 on this year’s overall rankings: In Jackson Heights.
