381) Sideways. Yeah, this totally didn't live up to the hype. I was pretty sure it was going to be nothing more than a couple of middle aged yuppies whining for two hours, and even though there were more laughs and not as much whining as I expected it still wasn't the monument to hilarity I had heard it was and there wasn't a single character that I could stomach. Whatever.

382) Black Cadillac. Crappy low budget horror at it's absolute crappiest. Did I mention it was crap?

383) Kiss the Bride. Yahoo! Movies has two different entries for this movie and neither one of them sounds really good. Which is pretty accurate.

380) Angel Heart. I've always seen this in the video store but I've never heard anything about it or known anyone who has seen it so I imagined that it probably sucked and avoided it...UNTIL NOW! It popped up on the Somewhere in the Night recommended neo-noir list so I figured I'd give it a shot, and it actually turned out to be pretty good. Mickey Rourke actually turned in an excellent performance, playing the typical "in over his head but can't get out" noir lead to perfection, and the whole voodoo angle and "twist" ending made the story intriguing. I wouldn't buy it or anything (knowing the ending makes watching it again pointless), but I'd recommend it.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Why did I have to get into this stupid show. I'm going to kill Holley and Jolley for this. So my revulsion/disgust for Marisa has turned into attraction over the last few episodes, and the shooting? SO HOT FOR HER NOW. I hate myself. Anyway all of my stories (save Desperate Housewives) are done for the season and I'm completely relieved because I will be needing some serious time to play catch up on the count. This working late every night is killing me.

379) Mr. 3000. I laughed, I cried, I predicted the ending. What more do you need?

I'm going to start Angel Heart and will probably finish it but I'm not 100% positive that I'll stay awake. Fingers crossed, people.

...but the enemy I see..

...wears a cloak of decency...

Are you kidding me? After Rathergate and now the Newsweek mess? FIFTEEN PEOPLE ARE DEAD because their anti-Bush zeal beat out their journalistic integrity, and now these assholes have the nerve to say that the White House is trying to dictate the editorial process for the nation's media by suggesting that Newsweek needs to help clean up the mess they made, which, by the way, isn't likely to happen since Newsweek can print all the retractions it wants and Al-Jazeera won't say word one about it so the vast majority of the Muslim world will go on believing that we're desecrating the Koran. Also, remember when the Palestinians occupied the Church of the Nativity and ripped up Bibles for toilet paper? I don't recall any Christian demonstrations that resulted in FIFTEEN DEAD PEOPLE. Religion of Peace indeed.

377) Blade: Trinity. Man, this just sucked. And that's tough to do when the other two Blade movies are all you have to live up to.

378) Next Friday. Maybe not quite as funny as the first one, but it was still pretty funny.

375) The Talented Mr. Ripley. I can't really tell if I liked this or not. On the one hand it was pretty engaging and I liked the story, but on the other it seemed like every last minute of it's two and half hours and by the end I was more interested in it being over just so I could stop watching instead of finding out what happens. I imagine I would probably like the book because I like the idea of the story and think it was a well written movie, but it seems like there is so much going on that the only real way to do it justice is to actually sit and absorb it through the actual written word instead of watching it in one sitting in 150 minutes and being done with it. Don't I sound pompous?

376) Unleashed. You know who kicks ass? Jet Li does! It was so nice seeing him get back to some serious ass kicking action after that awful "graceful pageantry of the martial arts" bullshit.

370) The 25th Hour. Can someone please be brave in their casting for once and NOT cast Phillip Seymour Hoffman in the almost likeable if he weren't so desperately creepy role? Cause there are other actors capable of playing that role. Give someone else a chance.

371) The Treasure of Pancho Villa. Mr. Burns was right. That puppy really does look like a young Rory Calhoun.

372) Elephant. I don't know what to say, so I'm not going to say anything.

373) End of Days. Phew. Things got really heavy for a little while, but thankfully Arnold was right there to bail me out. So yeah, Robin Tunney does have that kind of "dark" hotness about her. I'm not all that surprised Satan would choose her as his bride.

374) Blade II. I wish I had a cool nickname like "Daywalker." Maybe I could be "Couchsitter" or "Naptaker" or even "Cokedrinker."
