Must see "Walk the Line" and "Prime"...in the theatres.
Though I would love to find that jackass' review who stated Johnny Cash would never have had a drug problem if Rose had just married him to begin with. Ex-squeeze me? And all the negative reviewers of Prime can kiss my white butt-cheeks. My audience laughed the whole way through and clapped at the credits. 'bout time we had an authentic rom-com.
Reserved recommendation of "Jesus is Magic"...matinee or rental. Still think Margaret Cho and Kathy Griffin are vying for Funniest Woman Alive, not Sarah Silverman. No comment on sad state of affairs that "woman" still has to be inserted in that title.
If you haven't seen or finished "Rome", for Zeus's sake, what the hell are you doing? Must go see it now. HBO on demand. Soooooo great, and not just because Ciarin Hinds has been a god to me since "Persuasion" and Broadway's "Closer." WHAT ENTERTAINMENT. Holy crap that was good. Can't believe they're waffling on renewing. Guess it was the 100 million dollar price tag. But really worth it HBO, really!
"Invasion" continues its slow-burn. Stephen King was right; this is the "Lost" rip-off to beat. Never would have initially predicted it. But how do you top a born-again Christian vet hacking off his newly regenerated left arm with a chainsaw to prove his worthiness to Xenu?
How? You watch any single minute of Nip/Tuck. Holy freakin' "Oops I crapped my pants." This show is insanely riveting. When it ends every Tuesday at 10:59, I just want to run around the house flapping my arms screaming NIP/TUCK!!!!! like a nutter. Haven't been this excited by a show since "Twin Peaks." Freaking fanstaaastic. Can't believe I don't know anyone watching it. Losers. So for the record, I'm clearly wrong that the Carver is Liz. That was a man's body last episode, and a tall one at that. So that eliminates half the men and Gina, and we know it's someone they all know. Gotta say, I'm going with Christian. I think he's a schizo masochist, and the scene we saw of him getting carved was some kind of "A Beautiful Mind" ploy. Why? Kimber's reaction when she was kidnapped, and writing the letter. Poor, very dead Kimber. Oh my god, and the Neo-Nazi plotline? Brilliant!
"The Shield" marathon is this weekend, so catch the Farmington goodness and Glenn Close. Soooo amazing, even the uneven episodes. Vic is Tony Soprano cubed.
"Zombie Tales." And not just because Ron Lim is a convention buddy, and I had turkey with just about everyone else. It's a great read for anyone jonesing for some more undead. The short form is really fun; you're bound to find something for you.
