Was directed by the guy who directed Hellboy? Is that what you were going to say?

...Why yes, I am an asshole, how kind of you to notice.

Jagoff.

Is very good, but incredibly depressing. I think I prefer The Devil's Backbone, also directed by the guy who did Hellboy.

Saw Juno on saturday. Real surprised at the hype it's getting considering how much I liked it. Great voice. Ellen Page and Michael Cera are adorable. Fine motion picture.

Maybe people are starting to wise up and become as smart as we are.

We'll see. There is a backlash.

Also, if you haven't seen Waking Life you probably should have by now.

If you're gonna let yourself get wrapped around the fingers of pretty girls, you gotta expect to lose a dvd or two.

Spider-Man 3 was a letdown (lol), though I sure do like looking at Kirsten Dunst, regardless of the implausible strength of her nylons.

Whatever.

Spider Man 3 has it's moments, but it was a huge letdown after the second one. Too much happening. I like Topher Grace, but not in the same movie as Tobey Maguire. They're too similar.

I still say they should have had Topher play Ben Reilly precisely because of that.

I think Topher and Tobey were sufficiently differentiated (perhaps a little too much, to say the untapped similarities between the two were perhaps a missed opportunity) , but Brock/Venom were just sorta shoehorned in, kinda like everything else in the movie. Bruce Campbell was good, though.

Emo Macguire was the best part.

Topher Grace should have been Peter Parker all along.

Which would have led to the greatest scene in all three movies . . . Flash Thompson putting his foot in Parker's ass.

It'd be a better world if more people saw Juno than Spider-Man 3. Hell, I'd be satisfied if the number of people who saw Juno plus the number of people who saw Waking Life approached the number who saw Spider-Man 3.

It would be, but it's not. Remember what I said about escapism and what exactly people are escaping from?

To be completely fair though, Spider Man 2 was really good.

It all comes back to everyone needing to be as cool as us. The world continues to disappoint.

And yes, part two was very good. But dammit, what the hell about a cute sixteen year old girl with a sharp wit and an affinity for The Stooges getting knocked up by George-Michael Bluth sounds unappealing? Guh.

I would have always thought of That 70s Show and expected Danny Masterson and Wilmer Valderrama to make an appearance.

Completely random comment, Bill O'Reilly loves the movie, "Juno."

No shit, man. I saw an advanced preview (about two or three weeks before it opened) and I really loved it, so I assumed it wouldn't go very far. In fact, my husband said he wouldn't be surprised if it became hugely popular, and I scoffed. Just goes to show that I have no idea how these things work.

P.S. Emo Parker made me want to throw shit at the screen.
