Thinking About the Movies.
If I had time and/or Luds here these are the movies that I would be seeing:
Holy crap that is a long list! The only thing that I have seen in the past month+ was ďIn Her ShoesĒ and I really liked it. I hadnít read the book or heard anything about the movie going in, but I liked it. I particularly liked that the ďloveĒ story was with a goofy, flawed guy and not some perfect movie romance.

I also finally read High Fidelity last week. I loved it. Though there were times where I felt like maybe I was learning TOO much about the inner workings of a 35 year old nerdís brain. Now I need to find a copy of Fever Pitch and revel in my love of futbol. This week, I am reading the Corrections. Yes, I am late to the party yet again. Whatevers. Unless the book is something like
Youíre probably wondering how it is that I donít have any time to do anything, yet I read so many books. Well, I read them at the gym, on my lunch breaks and on the subway to work. That adds up to several hours a week it turns out. Hooray for multi-tasking.
I also read this awesome essay by Noah Baumbach (my hero of sorts) called
Movies that I donít want to see even if time were no object, in no particular order:
Yup, that about wraps that up.
