    I'm not sure how I feel about Mr. and Mrs. Carrie Bradshaw (not the esteemed SportsJournalists.com poster) being in a SWC movie.

    Non-blockbuster releases tend to sprawl out. I was giving them some slack. But a bitch slap may be in order.

    Psyched to see X3, have heard good things about it.

    Saw The DaVinci Code, the book is better.

    My parents saw The Lake House and said it was completely, horribly awful. That's what they get for spending their money on a Keanu Reeves/Sandra Bullock thing that doesn't involve explosions.

    I saw both Nacho Libre & the Lake House over the weekend and they were both horrid.

    I saw Cars this weekend at a drive-in. Now THAT was a cool experience. (Especially since the mosquitos weren't so bad!) I thought it was hilarious -- I don't care who you are, that's funny!
    Anyway, I missed out on a few of the funnier sound bites while sitting out of range of the car speakers. Overall, funny movie. I really haven't seen any of the others, but hopefully soon.

    Luke Wilson's understated "Oh no" as Uma flew through the ceiling had me rolling ... ;D

    Pretty down year for movies ... so far. I seem to say the same thing each year and get blown away by the great films of the fall and winter. I expect the same.

    A notable five from 2006:

    Hard Candy: Very well-acted, especially by Ellen Page (X-Men 3). Phrentic camera work of music-video veteran David Slade created an unsettling mood that held throughout.

    Prairie Home Companion: Nice change of pace. The type of film that could carry itself to a Best Picture nomination come next February. Loved the aloofness of the always-reliable Kevin Kline.

    Slither: Definition of campy fun. Stays inside its own pocket and doesn't mix genres. You can't watch it and not enjoy it.

    Bubble: Stephen Soderbergh-helmed film is the epitome of independent film. Feels like you're watching a very well-directed home movie. Was released in theater and on DVD at the same time.

    Inside Man: Spike Lee continues to show his relevance as a filmmaker. Not as good as 25th Hour or Summer of Sam, this film was great summer fare: Entertaining, taut, well-acted.

    Just saw The Devil Wears Prada, which was very, very good...

    Anne Hathaway is absolutely gorgeous and Meryl Streep is great.
