I imagine we're closer to Disney. Definitely not downtown. It's just a big mess of cheap stores, resorts, and theme parks where we are.

That could be any fucking part of Orlando.

Sorry, bastard.

Oh, no. I pretty much agree. Downtown is close to getting some identity, but it's not there yet.

Yeah, staying out by Disney isn't too bad. At least it's close to Universal and CityWalk, I really suggest going there if you have the time.

Here are a couple links that may come in handy over the next month or so:

http://www.moviecitynews.com/awards/...d_critics.html

That's a tally of all the awards won so far by various films and actors, directors, writers, etc.

The main website itself is one that I check daily year-round, and has a lot of great links to articles from various publications about films.

For you, Laz. This is from MSN's 10 Worst Movie Endings Ever:

Quote:
Special Prize: Steven Spielberg
"War of the Worlds" (2005)
"Schindler's List" (1993)
"Saving Private Ryan" (1998)
"Minority Report" (2002)
"AI" (2001)

I'm not one of those Spielberg bashers. In fact, I have good things to say about every single one of the above movies -- right up until their endings. Seems that in recent years, Spielberg has developed a bad case of anticlimactitis, an alarmingly common affliction among pop-culture artists that causes them to either (a) overstate the themes of the film in case anyone in the audience had missed them ("Minority Report"); (b) chicken out and deliver an unearned feel-good ending ("War of the Worlds"); (c) allow the film to drag on for an additional 45 minutes beyond its organic, satisfying ending and into a protracted, agonized, unconvincing epilogue that turns everything that came before into a pseudo-Freudian nightmare ("AI"); and worst of all (d) take all the artfulness out of a powerful piece of fiction and transform it into a weirdly ritualized, lily-gilding present day with real people doing real things like lighting candles and saluting gravestones, just to underline the film's nobility ("Schindler's List," "Saving Private Ryan"). It's a frustrating trend, one that makes it harder to defend one of cinema's most maligned directors. It also makes you long for the sight of Richard Dreyfuss and Roy Scheider paddling for shore on the splinters of a blown-up fishing boat, great white shark guts bobbing in their wake. Now that's an ending.

YES!!!!

This is about as well-stated as it possibly could be.

If you don't understand what this guy's talking about...well, you deserve the endings you get.

See, now Laz knows how to end things. Might not get much applause, but it's real. Real real.

Lance's Mom is all about happy endings, incidentally.

I just got done rewatching Gotcha. Run ... don't walk to immerse yourself in this 80's gem.

Do YOU remember when Goose had hair?

Silly me. Cate Blanchett actually won Supp. Actress for I'm Not There, not Amy Ryan for Gone Baby Gone.

So there is a slight kink in the armor.

Her book about her days as a stripper is HILARIOUS. Can't wait to see the movie.

In other news, I smell another double feature in my future!

Juno at one theater downtown, then around the block for I Am Legend! Or vice versa. I have many options.

I'm seeing I Am Legend with my buds on Saturday. It may be good, bad, or plain mediocre, but I'll just have to wait and see. Hopefully there will be at least one "Aw hell naw!"

Juno isn't playing anywhere nearby yet, but at least Fred Claus is still in theaters.

I'm going to try to see it in IMAX this weekend, but I've got my fingers crossed for a "WELCOME TO EARF" instead.

Well, I'm leaving D.C. tomorrow, and there are still a few films I haven't seen (It's a lot harder to see stuff back home).

Juno
Youth Without Youth
There Will Be Blood
The Savages
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

Those are the big ones left for me. Hopefully I'll see them some time before winter break it done.

The one on AintItCool.com works well.

I can't wait to see the trailer for this tomorrow, too.

Lazarus, help.

I have the Blade Runner Director's Cut.

Do I want to buy the 4 or 5 disc set coming out next week? I don't even know.

At least get the 2-disc one (director's cut, final cut) for the better transfer. The current DVD ilooks like a glorified laserdisc.

I know you didn't ask me, but hey, it's what little bastards do.
