How this changed my life — 3 years ago
…ok, maybe not my life, but certainly my future habits on All Consuming. Normally, for somewhat juvenile philosophic reasons, I mark just about every movie as ‘Worth Consuming’.

I just felt that a strict ‘thumbs up’ or ‘thumbs down’ system was too restrictive.
Of course, it could just be that I didn’t want to admit to myself that I had just wasted 2 hours of my life.
Congratulations to the makers of “Paul Blart: Mall Cop”; you have forced me to be honest with myself. Today, thanks to your efforts, I can admit that I have just wasted 2 hours of my life on perhaps the worst movie I can recall seeing in many, many years. I have been so inspired by your failure, that I am seriously contemplating going back and making sure that all the movies I have marked as ‘Worth Consuming’ are worthy of that statement. One down…several thousand to go…
