Horrible Bosses was awesome. Jason Sudekis is probably my favorite comedian of the moment. Even though Charlie day stole that fucking movie with his performance.

"The Swimmer" is my all time favorite short story and I never knew that it was made into a movie. The short story is an absolute masterpiece.

Watch Parc by Arnaud des Pallières (another Cheever adaptation).

Stitch and Lionhear, thanks. Your posts reminded me that I needed to put those movies on reserve at the library.

On the strength of this recommendation and based on the fact that I read (and enjoyed) Falconer when I was a kid, I looked this short story up online and liked it quite a bit. If I ever get around to getting the Internet configured on my flatscreen I'll order the movie.

Thanks.

MI4 Ghost Protocol.

Saw it at the IMAX, which is basically what it takes to get me out to the movies since i've got my projector with awesome sound system at home. The movie was a shitload of fun. I think they stretch reality too far with the tech but what can you do?

I saw MI4 a few days ago too and liked it much more than I expected to. I think MI1 and MI4 might be my favorites. I'm not sure if it's the IMAX or not, but at the end of the Dubai tower climbing scene I noticed my hands were actually a little clammy. That's the most response an MI movie has gotten out of me so I give them kudos for that.

Eh, I get what you're saying, but to watch MI IV on anything but the big screen is sort of cheating yourself out of one of the few things that is really good about the movie, which is Its over-the-topness which can really only be enjoyed in said setting, IMHO.

I just really enjoyed Roman Holiday. I was so jealous of Gregory Peck for getting to make out with Audrey Hepburn in a car.

I Love You New York was pretty enjoyable, too. I think they did a good job of capturing NYC.
