Now Playing (06/29)

L I M I T E D

Falling The new film from Austrian director Barbara Albert (Free Radicals) about thirtysomething former girlfriends who are unexpectedly reunited.
Ghosts of Cité Soleil
"this ain't no Hollywood movie" an acclaimed documentary on gang leaders in Haiti.
One to Another [NSFW] Randy French youth. Pierre is very close to his sister Lucie and three male friends, too. They're all very intimate. Naturally real death and not just 'little death' to follow.
Vitus Switzerland's Oscar entry last year. (Yes a lot of these have been surfacing. This will continue for another 19 months or so as 2/3rds of the the entries eventually stumble across the Atlantic or Pacific ponds. Nothing like striking while the iron is hot!)

Evening Starry cast. Unilluminating movie. my review
Live Free or Die Hard Bruce is back
Ratatouille A rat wants to be a top chef in Paris. The teaser and trailer were lovely... which is a funny thing to say about a rat movie but there you go. No matter what my feelings about Cars may have been (dull, overlong) Pixar has never really made a bad movie. Their output is generally good to great. So the question is always "how good will it be?" Rather than "is it any good?" and isn't that a wonderful trade off of questions? Long live Pixar.

Ghibli = GODS
Pixar = Angels
Aardman = More angels
DreamWorks = Demons
The Weinsteins = SATAN

No particular reason, they just are. :)

Apparently Ratatouille, from many sources, is Pixar's best, which boggles the mind.

well i'd take that with a grain of salt. people have such short term memories when hype is involved. Toy Story is already making best films of all time lists so if people say this is better. yeesh.

let's let it settle ;)

I loved Toy Story...and Finding Nemo...and The Incredibles. Ratatouille takes the cake though...it's tied for my favorite animated movie ever with Beauty and the Beast (I've seen older Disney movies, believe me).
