Movies I love but am scared to re-watch for fear of them not being as magical as I remember:

  • Memento
  • Moon
  • the Prestige
  • How to Train Your Dragon
  • Inception
  • District 9
  • the Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
  • Easy A

If you’re on Facebook, there is some crazy memory lane action happening on my wall about a movie I’ve always had stuck in the back of my mind but couldn’t remember the name of…and whenever I’d try to describe it, I’d get stared at like I was a crazy person. Discussion at Facebook, wherein I find out one of my friends remembers this movie too (!!!!), and a synopsis + screencaps from ‘the Hugga Bunch’ movie at some totally random website I found on a Google search for “movie magic peaches mirror”.

all of the 2008 black list scripts, online for your perusal.

last night i went with elaine to the warner bros. employee screening of ‘terminator salvation’ at the chinese theatre. the movie was pretty good despite having to sit in the third row, but i knew that getting out of the parking garage was going to be a nightmare. my solution? after i parted ways with elaine i made a bee line for beard papa’s at the hollywood & highland center. i carefully balanced my eclair cream puff as i paid for parking and rode the crowded escalators, and ate it while i sat in my car inching forward in the long line snaking up the garage ramps. it was glorious, and every time someone would walk past i’d be caught in the act of taking a big, messy, creamy, oozy, melted-chocolate-everywhere bite and i totally didn’t care. go ahead and stare, citizens! bet you wish YOU’D thought of this before you came all the way down to your car! the time in the line flew by. this will be my modus operandi for crowded parking garage exits from here on out.

i can’t wait to see it again. might go tomorrow. it was SO GOOD. and funny! and heart-wrenching! amazing. and spock and uhura? so. hot. together.

god i was going to watch the season finale of ‘dollhouse’ but i don’t know if i can handle that much awesomeness in one night.

update: oops, forgot – we also saw nancy walls at the movie. pretty sure it was her.

as told by mike

the new trailer was shown in front of ‘i love you, man’ and OMG!!!!!!

today i went to the arclight and saw slumdog millionaire. it. was. fantastic. if it’s playing in your city (probably not, but maybe it will be soon since it’s gotten golden globes nominations) you should definitely go see it!
