Your telling us about a cinematic event that we missed out on has inspired me to invent a new term.
Enright3, you are a Flick-Tease!
Now that this phrase has revealed itself to me I realize that I, myself, have been a Flick-Tease on more than one occasion. Living in L.A. I get to see a lot of movies before the rest of the country. (You know how every year there’s one or two movies that get nominated for an Academy Award and you think “How did that get nominated? Didn’t that movie just come out this February???”) Well, those films get nominated because they play either N.Y. or L.A. for a week in December then go into wide release closer to Awards time. I like to go see those movies in December in L.A. then call all my movie fan friends in other parts of the country and say, “Wow! Have you seen SuchAndSuch? Ohmygod! it was so good! I can’t believe you haven’t seen it yet!” This is probably the height of Flick-Teasery.
So, it takes one to know one- and, Enright3, you are a Flick-Tease!
