This Weekend: The IRAs
No, award season for movies is not over. This weekend is the 30+ annual IRA Awards, a terribly exclusive event in which grumpy movie buffs get together and argue over their favorite (usually obscure) films, mock each other's choices and eat cake. After a decade (can it be?) of attending, I'm bringing Aaron aka richboy aka watchboy into the group as my first invitee. Beyond the need to watch and admire offbeat fare, the central trait of an IRA member has to be the willingness to argue and bicker and attack someone else's opinions with venomous flair. He'll fit in just fine. I'll give you the full rundown of the winners and losers on Sunday.
