  1. Oh, and I also haven’t seen “There Will Be Blood”, but need to…

    Your first two quotes, i had a feeling, were from “There Will Be Blood” and “Hot Fuzz”, but I didn’t know which one was which. heh.

  2. fine choices…

    Great list of top stuff. We have a fair amount of faves in common (King of Kong, Hot Fuzz, No Country, The Lookout, Bourne Ultimatum, Eastern Promises), but thanks to the new fatherhood I missed out on a bunch of films I hope to see thanks to Netflix (Michael Clayton, There Will Be Blood, Juno, The Savages). I finally did catch Gone Baby Gone last week on DVD, and it ended up an easy top 10-er (even with the suspense removed thanks to having read and loved the book).

    After all the praise and backlash for Juno, I’m very curious what I’ll think of it. Did you not catch it, or were you just lukewarm enough to call it neither good nor bad?

    Oddly, I worship the Golden Compass books but had little desire to see the film. And still don’t. Rather keep my own brain-conjured images in place.

    And thanks to you, that damn Brian Kuh quote is playing in my head again… over and over and over… gah…

      Juno was fine, but I think it was a little overrated. It was marred by having some of the MOST overwrought dialog right in the first few minutes of the film (with Rainn Wilson).
