  1. Some good picks! The departed was intensely good! Apocalypto was.....ugh! And of course, the incredibles is almost unrivaled.

  2. Oh yeah. I prefer Apocalypto to Braveheart, which is pretty heretical if one is a film student or filmmaker. ;)


  3. This is the first time I've looked at your blog, so if you've reviewed The Grey, I haven't read it. If you haven't, I'd like to hear your thoughts on it. I was entertained when I saw it, but that's not saying much as I'm the worst kind of former film major (the kcind that is easily entertained). Aside from its spectacular acting and its ability to frighten me half to death, I was left feeling hopeless (and that I didn't enjoy).

    Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, however, will forever be one of my favorites. Good choice.
