I'd like to see Water for Elephants but not sure if I'll have the time to see it this weekend.

Nothing at home from Netflix; sending Fish Tank back today after watching it last night -- holy shit what a punch to the gut that film was.  Bleak storytelling but forcefully acted and extremely well written by writer/director Andrea Arnold.  Michael Fassbender was slimy brilliance and first time lead actress Katie Jarvis was just exceptional.  It's a tough, gritty, dirty-feeling movie but well done in all respects.  The last 15 minutes or so were truly unpredictable and more than a little unnerving.

Yesterday was a HUGE day as I advanced purchased my tickets for next Saturday's anniversary screening of Top Gun.  I am so excited I could puke in my mouth.

I just saw "The Conspirator," which was completely meh. The courtroom scenes sparked with a life that others did not, it was a bit caramelized and dullish (Eastwood would've done worlds better with this material). It wasn't bad, just slight and solid and completely unremarkable.

I will wait for the Blu Ray. Your comments echo everyone else.
