Triple Feature

You can tell the boys have loads of fun making these movies. I liked it better than 12, but not more than 11. Being a Vegas afficionado, I found it strange that the hotel in the film does not actually exist and the CGI got on my nerves a bit. Acting was a bit over the top, but again, that sort of thing isn't the point in the Ocean's films.

I was actually shocked that I found this one funny. I was expecting every gay joke in the book recycled, but somehow while not exactly new, it was felt fresh with these two comedians.


Sweet, heartfelt little movie. I liked it, but I did not think that it was the best indie since Little Miss Sunshine or fill-in-your-own-multi-award-winning-Sundance-esque-movie-title. The music, however, was really wonderful and felt so alive in the film - as if it were organically coming from the actors/musicians on the spot.

The O.C., Season 4

This past weekend, I hosted a Season 4 marathon. I thought that people would get tired of it around episode 5 or so. But no, we watched 17 hours in two days (we watched the season 3 finale as well). So many great moments, it surprised me that it held up - I thought for sure that even though I loved the episodes in the first run that second time around would not be the same. So thank you, Schwartz, Savage, and company for such amazing music, quips, and for capturing "a moment in time."
