March 2008 Movies

FINALLY saw The Darjeeling Limited last night! Loved it. I hope they do an extended cut SE or Criterion release someday with tons of extras to enjoy.

The writers strike gave me and Barb the rare opportunity to catch up on some TV that we had missed over the last year or two or three. We plowed through Season 1 of Dexter (not the edited CBS version, thank you very much) and Seasons 2 and 3 of Entourage (which I really enjoy, despite the hating its gotten lately). We're halfway through Season 2 of Dexter and Season 4 of Entourage, and we should be done with both well before the regular shows return in April (Battlestar Galactica, The Office, House, and Scrubs being the only ones I care about). If we're really diligent, we may be able to get through Season 6 of Curb Your Enthusiasm as well. On deck after that: Deadwood.

Here's my top 20 or so movies to see right now, some still unreleased. The starred ones I've got on DVD or Blu-Ray yet still haven't found the time to watch.

I was all about Iron Man until I saw the bad guy was Jeff Bridges as Iron Monger. I already watched two CGI robots fighting in the last year. It was called Transformers. It sucked.
