The Goliard's Own MovieManThe Movie Man Reviews Movies for Tucson

Those who have attended movies in the Tucson area over the last two decades might already be aware that the Movie Man walks among us. He has been a mainstay at local theaters over that period and has perfected a personal formula for spending the least money per film minute seen on the big screen. He has been known to view up to fifteen movies a week and does not own a VCR or DVD player. The Movie Man pays his admission (usually the "early bird special") and lurks about in a theater near you for the next six to nine hours, sidling in and out of different shows, maximizing his entertainment dollar. He does not discriminate as far as the films go and will see anything that comes down the pike regardless of genre, runtime, subtitles, subject matter, or prior review with the exception being that he typically doesn't see the blockbusters until long after everyone else has. 

Since some on the Goliard staff are exposed to his cinematic opinions and summations every week, we thought we'd spread the wealth and went out and inked a deal with the Movie Man who has agreed to provide brief reviews as a service to the theater going populace - a group who will undoubtedly find that his mug shot looks familiar. We will summarize his observations in this space, making them available so movie goers can have yet another resource to draw upon when making viewing decisions. The service is also set up as small restitution to anyone he has made uncomfortable over the years with his shadowy presence or bellowing laughter. He reviews a fresh batch of films almost daily and we jot them down and enter them here when we feel like it.
