"Goodbye Solo" was absolutely excellent. Definitely one of my favorites.

I picked up "I Love You, Man" and "Julie & Julia" and am watching the former. Is it just me, or does Jason Segel deserve a Globes nom for his performance? I mean, the film is not perfect (John Hamburg can't handle a camera very well), but Paul Rudd has that Cary Grant type of charm. So, I love thus far.
