Welcome to our 100th post!
When we started Armchair Mogul back in October 2009, it was purely for the love of the game. We love movies. We love TV shows. We love being entertained.
But with that love, as with all love, comes…some constructive criticism. It’s long been our goal here in the armchair that we never complain about something unless we also know how to fix it. And so, over the last two years, we’ve offered up hundreds of solutions to some of Hollywood’s biggest ongoing problems. Never did we dream it would lead to such a lucrative money-making machine.
And with good reason.
Neverthless, we pressed on. We’ve commented on blockbusters, praised our favorite creators, cast upcoming movies, slammed overused gimmicks and even made some existential arguments about the state of the arts.
We’ve had some writers drop out. We’ve some step up. We’ve run polls, played pranks and even had a couple of production babies along the way!
We just wanted to thank all our subscribers for sticking with us, for speaking up and chiming in. It’s no fun barking into the void unless occasionally someone barks back. Besides, there’s always room in the armchair for one more, so tell a friend and let’s all complain together!
Remember, until Hollywood starts getting it right, we’ll be here. You hear that Green Lantern!? WE’LL. BE. HERE.
We leave you with some fun facts about our run thus far…
