Is Being a Couch Potato Now a Compliment?

I have always considered myself something of a movie buff. My father is a cinimafile, and I was raised on a healthy dose of the classics and indie films. I went to school with a concentration in film, so I am even learned in the subject. If you describe something to me as “Fellinian,” I actually know what you are talking about. Let’s put it this way, I care about the Academy Awards for the movies not just the clothes. But it dawned on me the other day: I haven’t seen any of the nominated movies from last year! I still haven’t seen Silver Linings Playbook, and I think I am OK with that. Houston Press
