I've been on hold for the Macy's Fraud Department for an hour and a half. Seriously. An hour and a half! How do you make someone wait THAT long on hold? Haven't we fixed these issues yet? What, does Macy's have, like, one person who works for them? Ugh.

Anyway, I suck at introductions, so I'll just come right out with it: Two new writers have joined our staff here at Cinematical recently; both of whom chose to be beat-in instead of sexed-in, thank God. They are Elisabeth Rappe and Eugene Novikov. They are two very cool people with different tastes and different opinions, and so we welcome them to our team and ask you nutty readers to take it easy on them as they slowly transition into our rowdy circle of elitist film snobs.

Also, in case you have not noticed, we've added a little Featured Stories thingy on the right side below that Cinematical Seven banner. See it? There's three of them up now, and those will change every day. They will predominantly feature the day's hottest stories, as well as posts with healthy ongoing debates. There will be lots more changes in the coming weeks, so stay tuned. And, as always, definitely let us know what you'd like to see here on the site in the comments section below.

p.s. I'm still on hold. Make that two hours. ARGH!
