2010 in review – THANKS FOR READING LARS!

With 2011 off and running, a brief moment of reflection.

Thank you to my amazing wife and children for not only supporting this site but encouraging and inspiring me with review and feature ideas. They are the reason I’m able to ‘dabble’ in the blogosphere.

Thank you to my friend and mentor, known at Lars Beckerman Inc. as “Clickety.” The true man behind the curtain.

And, of course, thank you to all of you who glance at the site periodically (or regularly!!!). It is a work in progress to be sure, and you are all helping me find my voice. The feedback has been not only heartwarming, but instructional and motivational.

There are a few films on my ‘must see’ list that must ‘be seen’ before I can post my Best of 2010. But it is coming soon to a laptop near you.

Happy New Year film lovers.

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

  1. Lars, Congratulations on 2010! Your blog is inspirational to those of us in “fly-over” land!
    Your insights are spot-on, very educational and funny. I can’t believe that you are now our very own International Movie Reviewer — It seems like yesterday I watched you playing baseball at Pearl in Lake Wobegon, hanging out at the folks’ house; telling us your DREAM to be the BEST IN SHOW, ready to take over Siskel & Ebert ‘s world. Well Done, Well Done our native son! Now, Carry on – 2011 has just begun and you have promises to keep and miles to go before you sleep.” 🙂
