Exclusive: Jenna Ortega in Talks to Star in Taika Waititi's Next Movie

Plus, my annual 'If I Had an Oscar Ballot...' feature, in which 'Society of the Snow' makes a strong showing.

Happy Wednesday, everyone! And yes, it actually is Wednesday, in case you’re like me and you’ve already lost track of what day it is.

Last night I published my first paywalled newsletter… or at least I thought I did. As it turns out, I confused “subscriber break” with “paywall break” so everyone got to read my Top 23 Movies of the Year list for free. And you know what? There’s something kind of poetic about that. I’d hate to deny someone something that they’d been looking forward to all year over a measly $10 bucks. So yeah… that one was on the house! But hey, that’s the gig.

See, we’re experimenting together, you and I. I’m learning this shit on the fly, folks! I have no idea what I’m doing and you get to see it all in real time. But like I said yesterday, I’m a quick learner, and practice makes perfect, so I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it soon.

We are about to get an avalanche of news, so if you haven’t subscribed to my premium tier, I’m offering monthly subscriptions for $9.99, but you can get two months FREE by buying an annual subscription for $99.99 — and you can take an additional 10 percent off if you sign up in the next 72 hours! Click that hyperlink for the discount… which, again, I didn’t know had a separate link. My bad! I’ll make it up to anyone who paid for a full year and feels they missed out.

And again, I know times are tough out there, so if you can’t afford a subscription right now, shoot me an email and perhaps we can work something out. Either way, my goal is to send you approximately 250 emails a year. Give or take a dozen or two in either direction. Got a question? I’ll do my best to answer it. You won’t enjoy that kind of dialogue with any trade reporters, that’s for sure.

In tonight’s edition, which is exclusive to paid subscribers, you’ll get a huge scoop about Jenna Ortega, plus my annual If I Had an Oscar Ballot feature and my thoughts on the Academy classifying Barbie as an adapted screenplay.
