I bought Indiana Jones: The Adventure Collection today from a sale and watched Raiders of the Lost Ark. It's a great movie that entertains me as much as it did when I was a kid. Tomorrow, Temple of Doom.

I have been catching up on Oscar hopefuls for the past week or two:

WALL-E
The Visitor
Man On Wire

Non-Oscar contender Pineapple Express will be on its way shortly -- although I guess it is possible that the theme song by Huey Lewis and the News could be nominated!

Thoughts on THE VISITOR, Brendan?  I very much want to see that one.

Over the weekend my 8 year-old step-son picked up my copy of Buckaroo Banzai and asked if we could watch it.  I think he was a little bored during parts of it, but he really liked Dr. Lizardo.

Last movie I viewed from a disc was Monty Python and the Holy Grail.  First time I've seen the deleted scene.

The Visitor is one of the best character studies I have ever seen. Richard Jenkins' performance is masterful, and the whole film is beautiful. If Jenkins does not get an Oscar nomination for Best Actor, it's only because not enough people have seen it. Definitely worth your time.

That's what I've heard from all corners, so it's good to hear it from you as well.  Into the Netflix queue it goes!

BURN AFTER READING.

Strains to find its way and never does. Burn after viewing.

Another strong performance by George Clooney, though. I never would have thought ten years ago that he'd be one of my favorite actors today, but he is. And Tilda Swinton in mere minutes can out-act just about anybody.

Interesting.  I've heard from people who hate this movie and love this movie.  Doesn't seem to be much of a middle ground.  It being a Coen project is enough to get me to check it out no matter what anyone says.

I'd have the same reaction too, Matt.

Saw BURN AFTER READING on the big screen during its initial release in theaters -- I enjoyed it, but it is one seriously "whacked" movie.  Like most Coen brothers movies, this one includes the seemingly-obligatory "shock value violence" scene.  Good performance by Clooney.  My wife and I were both more than a little disturbed at how much Frances McDormand resembled my mother-in-law.
