I've spent 22 years at Entertainment Weekly, 19 of them as a critic—a glorious tenure that ends with this issue. . . . I once received an effing cool email from Josh Brolin telling me, and I quote, "You can f---ing write!" and promising to be in my movie. Not that I have any plans whatsoever to write a screenplay... (my plans include a book, an online project, speaking engagements about popular culture—oh, and a dog!)[10]
