Six Movie Geeks Sitting in a Tree, M-U-L-L-I-N-G

The second edition of the SLIFR Movie Tree House has been called to order, and I'm very pleased to be in attendance. The rest of the club of course includes our charming host, Dennis Cozzalio of Sergio Leone and the Infield Fly Rule, and veterans Sheila O'Malley and Jim Emerson. New to these parts are Steven Boone and Simon Abrams.

If you followed along last year you know how this works: for a few days, the crew trades thoughts on the previous year in film (at least, that's the idea). Most of the initial entries are in, and I'll be providing links on this page (below the jump) as they're posted. Of course, nothing is stopping you from heading right over to Dennis' yard and following along.
