Watched Fruitvale Station re: oscar Grant shooting by BART police officer.

While factually questionable, the movie was extremely gripping. Open sobbing in the theater, people yelling at the screen for Grant to make it although it was obvious that he did not - near the end of the movie the gentleman behind me had what was originally thought to be a heart attack, but just turned out to be an anxiety-based reaction to the shooting scene.

Catherine Keener, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Christopher (Cowbell) Walken. What could go wrong?


I tried watching this on the plane on the way over. Seemed like a cool concept. I gave up after awhile as it didn't seem to be going anywhere.


Flying Virgin? I also tried ot watch it but instead fell asleep


Swiss. I switched over to the Fellowship of the Ring.

Just felt like watching it again. Still cute, funny. The lake scene with Julie Warner always gets my blood a pumping.


I never understood why she did not become a bigger star - was great in that film. Very underrated movie


It was filmed in part in Micanopy, FL, just south of Gainesville and on my commutes to/from home when I was a student, I'd drive through on my way back and think I was in Grady! Smile

It's a great film and holds up well. I also thought it was a shame when Pixar ripped off the plot and re-made it into Cars. Prior to that, their films had been original and inventive.
Atlas Shrugged II. We watched the first one and it was pretty bad, but had a moment or two. It's going to be a trilogy. So we watched the second one. One interesting thing is they replaced the entire cast. But it didn't matter, as my wife so correctly put it, "It's uniformly mediocre." There is literally not one moment that's worth anyone's time, but it's hard to stop watching. You keep thinking there must be something of value coming up. But no.

Can't wait for the final part in 2014!
