Invictus opens this weekend. I want to see it. But I won't have time over the next few days.

Sunday is a day at the theater in NYC; seeing God of Carnage. Looking forward.

From Netflix I've got the critically acclaimed indie Ballast -- have heard nothing but excellent things.

Also -- speaking of excellent things -- the first reviews for Avatar are making their way online and the buzz has been nothing short of spectacular. Now I am getting more excited...

I watched Public Enemies last night and it really bothers me that this film isn't going to get the across-the-board Oscar nominations it deserves. Brilliant film.

And if Armond White hates "Avatar" (which he will of course), then it's all the more reason to see it! All I know is: Tapley called it the greatest cinematic experience of his life. And even the Guardian's snub was mostly positive. I think we're looking at another "The Dark Knight."

I saw "The Princess and the Frog" and "Invictus." I'm working double time this month, with school, work, and catching up on some titles that I missed. I have about 25 to 30 that I need to see within the next few weeks and then January comes with a few DVD and theatrical releases headed this way. I should be done with this year by at least late, late January, followed by my Decade Best article. I'm thinking this could be the first year where my number of films seen will exceed 100. Pretty. Damn. Awesome.
