Trailers: Mongol, Sex and the City, Son of Rambow 

Foreign film, crap for idiots, and a British indie comedy... I must've gone to see and independent film and didn't realize it.  Mongol and Son of Rambow both look at least mildly entertaining.  They'll both be rentals.

Run, Fatboy, Run

I hope everyone realizes this is not an Edgar Wright film like Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.  If you're expecting that you'll have a bad time.  This is more of a cute little romantic comedy.  Simon Pegg is still good in the lead role as you'd expect and for the most part everyone plays their parts well, but it's a different type of movie than Pegg is usually in.  Still a good story, not uproariously funny but still worth some chuckles and a good time.  Sad thing was there were only a total of 5 people in the audience including myself when I saw it.  Not a good sign.  My guess is people looking for a comedy this weekend are going to see Superhero Movie because they hate themselves and anything resembling a good movie.  7 / 10

Trailers: Kung-Fu Panda, Nim's Island, Speed Racer, Wall-E, Ice Age 3

Since I had my nephew with me, I'll relate what he has to say about each movie.   Basically he wants to see all of them and was actually excited about a part 3 to Ice Age.  Wall-E is my most anticipated off this list and one of the ones I want to see the most all summer.  The newest trailer made it look even more appealing.  Kevin I think wants to see Kung-Fu Panda the most as he gets very excited at the trailer.

Horton Hears a Who!

Yay, movies with exclamation points in the title.  We need more of that.  Surprisingly not bad kid's movie.  It is a kid's movie though and has the inexplicable pop music number near the end, but other wise there were a lack of pop culture references in it.  I'm glad they stuck to the story and did their best to make it funny rather than trying to make it relevant.  Thoroughly enjoyable movie that was worth sitting through.  I'd say it's worth at least a rental if you don't want to go see it in the theaters.  7.5 / 10

I can't tell if Southland Tales is brilliant or one of the worst movies ever made.  I do know that it's fucking insane and probably intentionally uninitentionally hilarious.  On top of that it has possibly the strangest cast EVER with so many people playing against type...

Time Away

Taking time away from all my chat programs for a few days... so no Yahoo, no MSN, no AIM, no IRC.  Since I find myself getting mad at some of the people I talk to on a constant basis, and I'm sick of other people being extremely mean to me, I think I need this break.  It also gives me time to catch up on reading and the backlog of TV watching.  

So far, not being on IRC is the hardest as I'm always there when I'm on the computer.  I might break down and show up before I'm caught up on things, but I'm going to do my best not to.  Even if it means I'm feeling a little lonely as a result.

La Scala

Apparently there is this new thing where some major theater chains are now showing operas from La Scala.  Now I know nothing about opera of course, but I still think this is a good idea.  I'm far more likely to watch something like that in a friendly theater setting rather than having to dress up and go out to see it.  This really makes me wonder about something else though...

Why don't they do the same thing with Broadway and Off-Broadway plays/musicals?  I'd love to see Wicked and due to demand for tickets and prices at the Fox Theatre, I just don't see myself ever getting to see it until they eventually decide to make a movie version.  I don't think it would have a significant impact on ticket sales for the actual musicals themselves either.  It could be run in limited engagements of a week, or even a single night, just something that would allow a wider audience to see these things.  My local theater runs opera, sporting events and concerts on their screens... I think it's time that it started running plays and musicals as well.
