Back in May I posted a list of the movies I wanted to see this year. So far I’ve seen 7 out of the 10 I was shooting for, plus caught up on 2 that I had missed once they came out on DVD. Not too bad. I’m pretty sure I’ve reviewed them all on here after seeing them.
There are a few on that list that haven’t come out yet, and there are some . . . → Read More: 2011 Movies – The Final Push
In my last post I asked for some help coming up with films for my annual New Years Eve triple feature. I got some great responses (though very few actually on the blog, which I find kind of funny).
There was jockying and substitution all the way to the moment I paid the rental fee, but we ended up with the following list:

I’m reading a lot more comics/graphic novels now than I ever have. Sadly, that’s not saying much, since I only read individual unconnected issues at a time – I never really read a full storyline until a year or so ago, save for one or two “special occasions.”
Now, though, I’m borrowing stuff from a few friends’ collections, and I’m loving it. I’m reading a pretty wide variety of stuff (standard superhero fare, TV show . . . → Read More: An attache case, an underground government, and a Spider-Man on the edge
Finding Neverland wasn’t boisterous, or exhuberantly full of wonder. It was, if anything, understated and simple in its execution. Despite the drama of a crumbling marriage, oppression, depression, and death, there were no histrionics, no yelling, no overwrought grief – these things were just facts of life to be dealt with.
