I would recommend Friends with Money to others. It was a movie made out of small scenes in the lives of some people -- the majority amusing or interesting. It was short and to the point and good.

I realized that I don't use the poll function enough. So here is a poll.

Edit: The final couple of questions should read "movie(s)" not "movie". (It won't let me edit it now)

[Poll #714673]

You are all commanded to see American Dreamz. It's a hysterical satire of America.

Here's what it says on the poster:

"Imagine a country where the president never reads the newspaper, where the government goes to war for all the wrong reasons, and where more people vote for a pop idol than for their next president."

Yeah -- awesome movie.

If you can see the movie Brick, you should -- it was the best movie I've seen in a long time. The writing is amazing, the acting is fantastic, and the film is really well shot and edited. I could tell you sort of what's its about, but any description will really sound dumb. You just need to see it.

Saw Inside Man. Entertaining flick. Parts of the soundtrack were particularly nice. Also, well thought out.

The movie takes place in NYC. While I was watching it, I felt like I was home. Then the lights came up and I just sat there, in Boulder again.

About two months now till we go home.

Just got home from CSA: The Confederate States of America. Its a pseudo-documentary about what the world would be like if the south won the civil war. It was generally pretty good, although it got a little thin in places.

So I saw V For Vendetta. Yeah. I was expecting it to be bad, so I'm not as upset as I could have been.

Spoilerish stuff ahead -- proceed at your own risk.

Ok. I think I've gotten it all out now.

You should all read the comic now. Yes, its sort of melodramatic and overdone. But really, there are parts in there that are perfect.

Just got home from watching Capote -- after kt mentioned it in her journal, I was struck by the need to see it before it left the theater.

What a brutal movie. That's the only word I can think of for it - brutal.

Its snowing again. Its snowed everyday for the past week or so. Not really a lot on the ground, because it tends to melt inbetween each snow fall, but pretty good amounts of sleet and ice around, and lots of snow on my car every morning.

Yesterday I read V For Vendetta cover to cover. I generally like Alan Moore's work and this one was pretty amazing. It was philosophical like From Hell, but not as wordy-with-no-action as From Hell. It had similar pessimism to Watchmen, but ended with hope. All around probably my favorite of his stuff so far. I'm glad I read it before the movie comes out next week. I don't really know what to expect from it -- the last Alan Moore book that got turned into a film (From Hell) went through pretty *significant* plot and character the fat married policeman in the comic who becomes the opium smoking, psychic Johnny Dep in the movie. Yeah. I guess we'll see.

I have a pile of school work to do and really I should go to the library right now. I can't access the databases I need from home and I need to print a bunch of articles. But, gods, its snowing a lot out there. And I really don't want to go out again. Couldn't sleep last night, and then I woke up this morning with just two minutes to get myself to work. So I'm all out of sorts and I really don't want to go out again. I think I'll get done what I can from here.

Besides, procrastination is your friend. Or something.
