In America, the only respectable form of socialism is socialism for the rich.
Went to see "No Country for Old Men" and it's an incredible film.

Profundity in all regards, the writing, the cinema photography, the acting, casting, etc... with no pretense. There's a lot to think about in this kind of story -- and how it exposes the fragile line of civility we all enjoy.

I'd like to go see that one. I'd also like to go see The Golden Compass.

Took the family to see The Golden Compass yesterday. Everyone enjoyed it. It's no Lord of the rings, but it's well done fantasy.

What a journey.
Was the crowd at the theater well-behaved? I mean, all those atheists in one place and all. :)

What a journey.

Yes, they didn't stone anyone. Nobody martyred themselves. No one tried to convert anyone.

it was very peaceful.

I recently discovered something very cool with Handbrake. When I went to play the movie Tron on my iPod, I noticed that the chapter breaks were there! Just like when you download a movie from the iTunes store! It seems when you use the AppleTV setting in Handbrake, it marks the chapters as you go along. Sweet!

Just finished yet another anime series.

Samurai 7.

It was very good. Not sure what will be next yet. We'll see what my friend brings in to work tomorrow.

I brought my coworker's DVDs back in today. Now I have to wait until he remembers to bring in a new batch for me.

well.

Frampton has pimped out. Geico commercial.


He once toured with Bowie. During a guitar solo he riffed one or two of his monster hits. It was cool.

I don't know about anyone else but in the trailers doesn't it just look like an amalgamation of everything Burton has ever done? (Save Big Fish)

Helena Bonham Carter wore the same makeup in the made-for-tv movie Merlin.

I'm not a Depp fan (see my Edward Scissorhands posts) so I'm not driven to see it. But if you liked it enough to post the name of the film 5 times in all caps with four exclamation points maybe I'll consider it. ;-)

stan, had you seen the original stage show? are you comparing the film to that and saying it's a faithful adaptation? i'd want to see sondheim, not burton, if i go to see "sweeney todd".

I'm falling squarely on the Burton is old hack/sucks side of the tracks.

What a journey.

It's difficult to take such a stance in polite company, but Burton's never done much for me, either.
