Best thing he's done since he curb-stomped someone.

I watched Little Miss Sunshine for the first time today.

I'd always wanted to see it - yes, mostly because Steve Carrell was in it (though strangely that did not want to make me see Bruce Almighty, work that one out ) - but never got around to it. We watched it today for Media&Comm, and was it a great movie. When we stopped watching half way through and the lights came on I discovered I had my feet on the seat next to me and I was holding my legs, without even noticing. I got really into. It's heartbreaking in parts, hilarious in others. I guess while my family's nothing like that, I can draw similarities and I related because I can see my family in some of the characters, and especially because I have a sister aged 10. Very unexpected (and a smidge unsatisfying) ending but it worked well. Will watch it again.

Reminds me though... in what movie was that final scene where she's dancing to Superfreak spoofed? Or have I just seen that part of the movie before...

Up with Donnie Darko, The Castle and a few others as one of my favourites.

The Corporation

Fascinating and often appalling. It was a 2-1/2 hour documentary and it didn't feel nearly that long.

I know how much people adore that scene, but it almost ruins the film for me.

That scene is probably in the Top 10 Laughing Fits I've had in a theatre.

In a good or bad response? I can't remember if you liked LMS or not.

I thought it was a good film. Not BP nom worthy. But I don't really have an issue with that guy winning screenplay. Especially compared to Diablo FUCKING Cody.

Good deal. I enjoyed it myself too. That screenplay doesn't even compare to that Juno shitstorm. It's actually nice when a script, you know, develops themes and such, and has legitimate characters.

I've seen it plastered everywhere, but have sort of been afraid to watch it. I have a bad feeling about this one for whatever reason.

I had an iffy feeling about it. There were a few gags thrown in there that I liked, but it seemed to be a zanier comedy than I was expecting. Larry David is a near-perfect substitute for Woody in this instance though.

Of his pure comedies, I think the last one I enjoyed was Manhattan Murder Mystery. Granted, I haven't seen his stuff between Sweet and Lowdown and Match Point, but those aren't held in high esteem by many anyway, right?
