Quick update. As you can tell, things have been slow at The Warning Sign lately. I probably won’t be posting much for the foreseeable future either. Other priorities have taken place, and I just don’t have the time to sit down and write like I used to (or even watch movies, as noted by the lack of them listed above). I still plan on putting up these “month in review” posts, if only for personal logging purposes, but I can’t imagine there being much otherwise. It was a damn good run though. Hard to believe I was posting nearly every weekday for a few years in a row.

In the mean time, I would like to say a special THANK YOU to everyone who stopped by during the many years of TWS. I have met a lot of cool people through blogging, and I greatly appreciate all of the support! Until next time…

    Oh bummer! But I totally understand Eric, I don’t know how long I’d continue blogging myself, and it’s been great *chatting* with you about movies. Hope to see you around in the blogosphere, and best of luck w/ everything!

    • Eric says:

      Cheers, Ruth! It’s been a blast chatting with you, too, over the years. I won’t be a total stranger (speaking of which – just checked the date, I need to stop by for the fifth!)

      • ruth says:

        Glad to hear you’d still be blogging n visiting from time to time, Eric! Yes, I would love to get your thoughts on Five for the Fifth! 😃

    Cheers Eric, it really is quite an exhausting effort. I’m considering taking a hiatus from DSB myself, its’ mostly a time issue for me as well. I wish you the best in all your future endeavors.

  3. Wendell says:

    Completely understand how life can intervene. Good luck with everything you’ve got going on. I’ll be looking forward to these recaps, though.

  4. The Blog of Big Ideas says:

    Good luck on all your pursuits Eric. I know all about the struggle of keeping a blog alive and kicking, as it is shown by my lack of new content, but I try to keep it going despite a lot of welcome and unwelcome distractions. Whatever it is, I do hope to see around in some form or another.

    • Eric says:

      Many thanks, Niels! I think I may have to mirror your approach. I don’t want TWS to die completely, and I would agree that sporadic posts are much better than nothing at all. It’s always great to see new posts from your site pop up on my Feedly account.

  5. Chris says:

    Enjoy reading your blog, so sorry to hear you won’t be as active. Understandable that other priorities are more important than watching movies. I’ll still stop by for the occasional updates! Also, thank you for all your commenting over at my site over the last 2-3 years.

    • Eric says:

      Thanks man, I really appreciate it! I’m a big fan of your site, and it’s been a lot of fun chatting over the years. Found a lot of great music through your blog, too, which I am really grateful for.

    Long time reader, sad to see you taking a step back but life does indeed beckon occasionally.

    I really liked Draft Day (although my rating is about the same as yours, although on a different system) — it’s in one of my early quick daily reviews, thought it was a very solid film and a great behind the scenes look at an interesting world. What drags it down is a romantic storyline (although with lovely performances) and paternal back story that both feel completely shoe-horned into an otherwise good movie.

    • Eric says:

      Thanks man. I pretty much agree with your analysis of Draft Day. I thought it got a bit ridiculous near the end as well, but overall the film was entertaining enough.

  7. Jaina says:

    Sad to hear that you won’t be writing as much here from this point on, but that’s life eh? We’ve got to concentrate on whatever priorities we’ve got on our hands.

    I’ve really got to watch Deadwood – it’s been sitting on my list since Justified started.

    • Eric says:

      That’s funny — Justified has been on my must watch list ever since I finished Deadwood. I’ve heard several cast members have made cameos on Justified, too, which makes me even more excited to check out the show. Soon, I hope! And I think you will love Deadwood when you get the chance to start it.
