Okay, this is a minor beef, but just so you know:

You should always refer to recorded art (books, albums, movies, etc.) in the present tense.


CORRECT: “The Godfather is a good movie.”

Context: It continues to be a good movie and will do so until the end of time.

INCORRECT: “The Godfather was a good movie.”

Context: I used to think it was good, but I don’t anymore.


Remember, just because you experienced it in the past doesn’t mean it doesn’t still exist.

“That IS a good movie. That IS a good book. That IS a good song.”


Performance art is different. “That concert was great” is expected.


That is all. As you were, soldier.
