Some readings:

First, the great A.O. Scott on, broadly, the future of cinema.

Chris Klimek in the Village Voice on "The Four Types of Spoilers and How Reviewers Should Handle Them"

Britt Hayes in Badass Digest asking "Why Can't Women Have the Same Journeys as Men in Film?"

Greg Ferrara on a particular predicament on blogging about film.

Winning the internet for October is The Hill Valley Project, which is basically a collective of twitter accounts re-enacting Back to the Future one tweet at a time.

Hopefully some more movie watching as we approach the end of the year when more great movies begin to come out. See you in November.
