    Just watched Sleepwalk With Me last night and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'd seen some of Birbiglia's standup somewhere and I'd forgotten how funny he was! I just loved the entire vibe of the movie; from the opening address to the camera to his adopted fictional name (Pandamiglio) to the actually heart-felt semi-romcom plot , I thought the entire movie was a complete hit. Many moments of hilarity balanced perfectly with a sense of genuineness. Recommend.

    Also, watched That's My Boy while sooooooo high the other night and I loved it. I was expecting the worst movie ever from all the terrible reviews but I was pleasantly surprised. If you enjoy Sandler (especially old Sandler like Billy Madison, Waterboy and especially weird Sandler like Little Nicky, or Zohan) then you will definitely laugh at this movie. I know I'm talking to a sliver of the movie-going public when I address those fans (I'm one of them), but for whatever reason, all Sandler's weird voices and abominable acting is somehow endearing to me. I also love the delightfully meta-sense running throughout the entire movie runs and its complete awareness/disdain for wedding-movie cliches; if you've got nothing to do for 2 hours, and you want some gut laughs with some friends, smoke some weed and watch That's My Boy. ESPECIALLY if you know nothing about the plot going in.

    I'll be there when Superman is released just to stare at Henry Cavill's chiseled face for a couple of hours. I have no idea whether or not he can act, since he didn't display any prowess in The Tudors (in his defense, no one else in that show did either) and I hope to god his American accent won't be terrible, but DAMN he'll be the most beautiful Superman ever.

    He was decent in Immortals. My girlfriend was very pleased that he was basically just wearing underwear the entire time.

    Right, kept messing that up. I noticed last night it just showed up on Netflix Instant. I missed the one week it was on a screen before.

    I have been wanting to see this along with the documentary she did about her parents. Unfortunately the movie had limited release here- did you see it on Netflix?

    Thanks for the heads up on this. Just watched it tonight, and I thought it was excellent. Beautifully shot film. Odd casting choice, but I thought Seth Rogen was surprisingly good in a dramatic role.

    I think Stories We Tell has only played festivals. Roadside Attractions should be releasing it next spring/summer.

    Just got back from The Hobbit in IMAX 3D. It was amazing! I know there has been a lot of griping about this movie, but honestly I thought it stood up to the LOTR trilogy quite well. Yes, some of the action was a bit over the top, and there was more humor, but you need to keep the source material in mind. Martin Freeman is great as Bilbo, and all the returning cast puts out solid performances. Can't wait to see this trilogy play out.

    Zack Snyder will never direct anything noteworthy aside from the first 10 minutes of Dawn of the Dead. Sucker Punch, which was his greatest period of freedom, was a fucking abomination.

    I agree that the introductory scenes in Dawn of the Dead are legendary. So well executed. Great soundtrack and sequences.

    It was highly entertaining., though it feels super long. But the second half is quite a treat, especially the goblin city. 48fps was somewhat jarring though. I'd be curious to see it again at the normal framerate to compare.

    The Hobbit was mostly terrible from a storytelling perspective, but it was cool to look at the HFR 3D. For me, it felt like everything was moving in fast forward and I never completely got used to it, but god it looked great, super-sharp.

    Regarding the storytelling - damn, I'll never complain about how retarded something like "Wanted" or "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" (or apparently anything with Angelina Jolie) is again after seeing all the ridiculous close calls these dwarves went through. Not to spoil anything - the end of "Fellowship" had a lot of REAL DRAMA going on, characters lost, dead, captured, etc... and every battle felt like it could end in the death of a primary character. In "Hobbit", there's no real drama... ever. It's just crazy CGI nonsense for three hours on par with those other absurd modern films. I think the fact that Fellowship was based on the book (and the natural stopping point of the original book) while Hobbit is cut into artificial parts may have contributed to the lack of anything significant happening, but at the end I felt like I'd watched a cartoon/videogame... while Fellowship left me drained (with Gandalf and Sean Bean's, etc).

    It was otherwise extremely similar to the original films. I would have lost the riddle battle with Golem or Bilbo. I suck at that, apparently.
