The best film of the year so far…

was on HBO tonight.RECOUNT re-examines the events of the 2000 Presidential Election, and although we know what happened, director Jay Roach (the AUSTIN POWERS movies?  Really?) and writer Danny Strong (BUFFY!) made a terrific film that made legal arguments over hanging chad (chad is plural, by the way) and disenfranchised voters completely compelling, and they turned in a … Continue reading

It's My Fault.

I could list all the things that’s kept me from blogging: the election, GTA 4, work intrigue, home stuff, but the fact is that I’ve been lazy.  I said I was going to do a series on Spielberg films, and I’ve screwed the pooch on that too, but I promise to get on the ball … Continue reading
