"Welcome to the first installment of Martini Movies, the east coast response to LA’s own street-gang-turned-bloggers organization, Margarita Movies. Why Martinis? Because we have some fucking class, that’s why. New York is a city of car-less alcoholics, and we celebrate this with proper drinks before indulging in the latest cinema offerings.

"Our inaugural outing sees us gathering at the Belmont, a bar in the NYU-infested region of Manhattan called Union Square. Cecil is absent, leaving myself, BMAC, PB, the Monster and a press-ganged Wong to pre-game for Cowboys & Aliens, a movie about James Bond and old Indiana Jones fighting special effects. I should be more excited for this, as cowboys and space men shooting each other is exactly the sort of reptile brain call to action I can’t resist, but the trailers are all people looking super serious and not at all enjoying the ridiculous situation they’re in. Not to mention that Harrison Ford’s film choices of late have led us as a people to some very dark places, and it’s hard to shake the fear that Shia Labeouf may appear at any moment, swinging from vines and pissing all over our childhoods."

And so lamb ushers in a new era of people talking about movies you shouldn't see. As with most of my endeavors, it is really just the excuse some friends and I are going to use to get together, drink, laugh and see terrible movies. Something we should all be doing frequently anyway. Well, it's that plus we are going to tell you about the the time spent together. It sounds exciting doesn't it? Well, it is. We're all rather fun to be around, even when you're only around us electronically.
