    I do hope you enjoy both. Oh, and don't forget: the Life on Mars watch begins Monday! (Which I realised is, by sheer coincidence, 6 years to the day since the first ep was broadcast!)

    I love it. Best comedy of 2010, imo. It's able to handle subject matter as risky for comedy as terrorism and treats it just right, with all the main characters clearly stupid but still fully three dimensional. A very good film.

    Yes, it's a pretty solid film, but pretty disturbing. Levitt gives and amazing performance. Nothing new there. The guy is an amazing actor. It's an interesting story. The main character played little league with Levitt's character and both boys were molested by the coach. The problem is the main character doesn't remember being molested and instead thinks he was abducted by aliens. It's an interesting film, worth a watch.

    Heather: I liked it alot! I didn't think I would, but it was pretty good. The only think was that I was a little confused at times because there was so much going on. And I wish Tarantino would've done a little something to distinguish Diane Kruger from Melanie Laurent. I swear, until the last 20 minutes, I thought they were the same person!

    SS:

    1. Type what you want the text to say (i.e. "2012 Movie List) and highlight it.
    2. Click the little icon to the left of the world with a red X.
    3. Paste your 2011 post hyperlink into the little window.
    4. Hit OK.

    And that should do it.

    Did I enjoy it at all? I loved it. I thought it was so funny. So many quotable lines. It's one of those films that makes it really hard to recommend to people because it's so hard to make them understand that it's a satire. Once they understand that, it's then even harder to make them understand that the subject matter is funny without being offensive. At least to me anyway. Since watching Four Lions, I've been walking around calling everybody "bro" sometimes pronouncing it with a "v" at the end.

    Ricky, thanks for the help! Worked like a charm.

    How was Rise of the Planet of the Apes (starring your favorite Oscar host)?

    I love him!

    But as for the movie...
    It was good. I'd definitely recommend it. But I was expecting something scarier. And I'm not quite sure how I feel about the ending.

    I think I'll check it out. I wasn't sure if I'd like it enough to go see it in the theater so Netflix sounds good.
