Saw Greenberg last night and was totally disappointed – one of the dullest movies I’ve seen in a really long time.  I’m all for films trying to present those “awkward real life situations” but unless the people involved are remotely interesting, then why bother? Did nothing for me. I should’ve just seen Shutter Island again.

I also watched The Men Who Stare at Goats, which was a good time.  Clooney is great as always, and Jeff Bridges does the whole “new age stoner dude” better than anyone.  The premise is great and the whole thing is borderline ridiculous without getting too silly or slapstick. Worth checking out, especially on a rainy east-coast day like toady.

And per Bullette’s suggestion, I watched The Damn United, which is about British football coach Brian Cloughand his rivalry with the coach of Leeds United. Done by the same team who did Frost Nixon.  Also well done.

And, finally, I rewatched The Shining the other night, which is still one of the scariest movies ever made, in my opinion.  And the cinematagrophy in that film is amazing. Kubrick nailed it.  A classic and personal favorite.

And now that Roku added this Drive-In Classics channel, filled with nothing but b-movies about zombies, vampires, giant slugs and teenage werewolves, expect productivity to down by at least 50% bro.
