You need to get back on that train, this season has been epic.

As bad as the trailer for 2012 is, I have heard from a few people that it actually pretty good. Coming from people who also thought the trailer looked like an awful movie as well, I thought that was interesting. I will not be spending any money to see it.

I've had a xmas tradition since I was about 12. Being the child of divorced parents I would shlep 350 miles every xmas vacation to see my dad and his parents. Usually by day 2 they were driving me nuts so xmas day was a day where I would spend all afternoon at the movies. See, my little podunk town only had one theatre and it only showed 1 film per weekend (1 show a night), usually movies on their 2nd or 3rd run. So, going to a large metro area with multiplexes and movies running from noon to nearly midnight was great. Usually I had no trouble spotting at least 2 or 3 movie previews for the holiday season that would instill at least an interest in shelling out exorbitant ticket prices to see them. This year, not so much. There's The Road for which I'm hopeful. However, the ads for this flick make it seem less psychological drama and character study and more of a subdued Road Warrior. I'm hoping the ad just reflects a marketing dept that has no idea how to market this movie than a true glimpse of the film. So I'm hesitant to shell out what's got to be close to 10 bucks a ticket now in order to be massively disappointed.Downey putting his spin on Sherlock Holmes might be alright. Honestly haven't seen much for this flick. The Dec 25th release date worries me that the studio is releasing on one of the biggest movie days of the year so they can do a quick cash grab before word of mouth spreads that it's a turd.So it looks like I may have to figure out a new tradition for xmas this year.

Up in the Air-worth a rent.Invictus-sports stories don't really turn my crank...even if it is rugby.The Lovely Bones-what dreams may come with a teen girl? Only if there's lots of gratuitous nudity.Nine-hmm, a middle age man going to a musical by himself in the middle of the day. I'm not that gay.The Imaginarium of Doctor Panassus-this is a distinct possibility. I wonder how tight a leash the studio kept on Gilliam to keep the train on the tracks though.

depending on which definition you use, yes, maybe, kinda, possibly. "The US Census lists middle age as including both the age categories 35 to 44 and 45 to 54, while prominent social scientist, Erik Erikson, sees it ending a little later and defines middle adulthood as between 40 and 65."Flamboyantly not that gay.--edit after reading sickie thread:Not that there's anything wrong with it. My father was gay.

So maybe I'll rent. Access to ffwd and slomo will be important for this film. Or I'll just wait and find a torrent of the good parts.

I'm so excited by the idea of 9. To remake Felini's 8 1/2 as a musical is one of the most audacious ideas ever, and staring DDL to boot! Either it's going to be Ishtar bad, or it's going to be epic.

It was a Broadway musical first, which was first staged in 1982, and according to Wikipedia, ran for 729 performances.
The above is my best decision in a while.

I know, and it's still audacious.

Random observation: wednesday's Top Chef is still unavailable on the stupid internet. There is a working link from piratebay, but it's impossibly slow (still just the 1 seeder). Was stuck at 80% all night, now all the way up to 90%. It is real though. Anyways, my random observation is that I am fiending for some goddam top chef.

I've been dling it since this morning and I'm at 90.6%, guess I won't see it til tomorrow. It's so annoying, I am afraid of accidentally seeing a spoiler, plus I started watching it earlier thinking it was done and got a few mins in before realising it wasn't a complete file.
We are all so complicated, and then we die. We are a subject one day, with our vanities, our loves, our worries, and then one day, abruptly, we become nothing but an object, an absolutely disgusting pile of shit. We pass very quickly from one stage to the next. It's very bizarre. It will happen to all of us, and fairly soon too. We become an object you can handle like a stone, but a stone that was someone.

Is anybody watching the AMA's? Janet Jackson needs to stop she is horrible. She is lip syncing the whole thing which means she should be good at dancing, but she's not, and she's sweating her ass off.
