On Wednesday and Thursday of this week, we saw five movies. That's kind of awesome: That's like being at a film festival. As we near liftoff, it is encouraging to note that it is starting to flow more smoothly, that we feel a little bit less like we're pretending. We're not as good as Grierson yet, but he has a decade of experience on us. We are sure we'll catch him by 2018, or when we launch, whichever comes second.
Here are things that happened this week:
*** The director of "Hanna" does not like the director of "Sucker Punch."
*** The newest Snow White is Phil Collins' daughter, which is kind of funny.
*** M. Night and Will Smith, Philly bros.
*** Look, new stooge!
*** Movie theater food: Very bad.
*** The new Gotham is Pittsburgh.
*** The "Human Centipede" musical, finally.
*** Settle down, "Hangover 2" trailer.
*** Some Tina Fey love.
*** No, Affleck, no!
That'll do it for us, kids. We're coming on a bit of a fortnight rest before the summer movies start kicking. So we'll try to sleep a lot. And remember: The key is to not think of death as an end, but as more of a very effective way to cut down on your expenses. See you Monday.
