I try to read Samir's blog, but his feeds are all fucked up so I can't subscribe in Google Reader. (There, I said it.)

Martin, try pasting this into GReader?

Today I watched MAN ON WIRE and HECKLER.

I'm not going to be the lone voice criticizing the former, it was rather good, and had a lot of mystery and just a sense of fun. And the last act is emotional and breathtaking.

The latter is made by Jamie Kennedy, and features FOT like Patton, Cross, Mirman, and a swearing Mr. Tompkins. It was pretty funny, it takes a shift from heckling to criticism and so I'm almost fearful to write about it. But the best part is right at the end when they play a song by my favourite band of all time, which took me completely by a joyful surprise.

Doesn't work. Last post that shows up is from July 21.



Really want to see Man on Wire. On the fence with Heckler. Is it worth downloading a rental?

Sunday I saw Outsourced and The Visitor. I liked them both. The visitor is a very slow set-up, but for me paid off in the last 20 minutes.

i watched The Strangers and Madagascar 2.

i originally saw the former in the theatre by myself; it continues to stress me out when i watch it.  Madagascar 2 was a family outing with friends who have kids- and not that bad.

I barely got through The Strangers the first time! It was a big disappointment for me.

I have broken ribs so I spent all day at home watching DVDs, trying not to move. Today I sat through Rocket Science which is like Juno/Napoleon Dynamite/Lil Miss Sunshine all crammed together and inserted in the viewer as a painful suppository. Then I watched Sicko. I wish Michael Moore would just get to the point and start titling all his movies, "Nyah nyah nyah!". Then I watched The Last King of Scotland which was pretty good until the end where it got really Hollywood and gratuitous.

Yesterday was better: Keep the River on Your Right and Jandek on Corwood.

Last night I watched The Cottage, which was pretty bad, followed by The Fog (remake) which was at least pretty, if not great.

Then I gave up and threw in Altered States.

I want to get back into the new wave of horror flicks, but it's hard.  Which are the good ones??

Was Rocket Science good? I've been meaning to watch that.

Dead Ringers followed by Network.

The first one made me nauseous.  The second one made me goosebumpy with joy (Ned Beatty's soliloquy is perfect to this day).
