Perhaps you've heard somewhere — the weekly Blast, multiple blog posts, ads in last week's issue, that annoying Indy employee in your building, etc. — that the paper went to press early this week. Perhaps the worst effects of the early deadline were felt in our film section.
We often have to decide upon how much space to allot for reviews before we're totally sure of which movies are coming here — and, for that matter, which movies will be screening early enough for our critics. But this week, with everything accelerated by a day, we were guessing almost completely blindly.
So we missed out on providing reviews of a couple wide-release films. If you're interested, however, you can read how one of our reviewers, MaryAnn Johanson, felt about both by visiting her "Flick Filosopher" blog.
