Big Hitter: Sequels, Three Oscar Contenders, and This Weekend's Meager Offerings

Movies This Weekend That Might Interest You
I won't lie to you, it's bleak out there. We've given Cadillac Records a solid grade, and Milk is getting a limited release this weekend too. Maybe stay in and reconnect with your family. Talk about how the year has gone for you, your goals and dreams and such.

My Bloody ValentinePress Releases of Note
We're running a Wanted contest on Monday. Free DVDs! You know you want some of that. Oddly enough, Wanted seems to be despised by women. Another odd divide: Tropic Thunder seems to be despised by people who only casually watch movies. Neither reaction makes any sense to me; but I've heard a lot of feedback on both films lately. Lastly, a new poster for My Bloody Valentine 3-D has been released. You can get the larger version if you click on it.

Sequel Rumor of the Day
Superman! Hancock 2! Sin City 2! I won't attempt to break all this news down; instead I'll send you to a fellow who has broken all this news down already.

Quote of the Day

Steve Lattimer: "I don't know, it's the battle, the going to war with the other guys, hanging together, having our own dorm, staying in hotels the night before the games, setting ourselves apart, being different than everybody else, having a chance to be somebody, to do something that people look up to you for, your strength, your courage. Not everybody can play football ... we're the lucky ones." - The Program

What I Watched Last Night Besides a Movie
I went to dinner, cutting myself off from all entertainment. After a 24 hour period that involved Revolutionary Road (amazing film about the potential horror of marriage), Doubt (amazing film and the potential horror of molestation) and The Reader (amazing film about the definite horror of being a Nazi), I was pretty spent.

What I'm Reading Right Now
I'm rereading Pat Conroy's Beach Music. Every so often I give it a week to restore my faith in the English language. It's a little sappy, but it's also tremendous writing.
