Canadian Computer Problems Delay My Review of "W"
I actually saw the movie "W" on its opening weekend. I banged out my
review and turned it in the next day. But due to some technical
glitches on my Canadian internet home, it took a while to get it up.
That said, I'm pretty proud of this review. Don't really know why. I
just feel like it's a good one. It always helps when I don't like a
movie for a very specific reason. And this one has plenty.
check out the review. Hopefully, by now, if you've seen the movie,
you've developed your own opinions and can either heartily agree or get

I know my blogging has slowed to a crawl, for which I apologize to all four of you still checking it on an occasional basis, but I fulfilled a lifelong dream (sort of) last night, and that is reason to do a little blogging.

there is just no way to not be petrified at what is currently going on
with our economy. I'm picturing myself dressed in hobo gear,
riding the rails and eating in soup kitchens in the next year or so,
along with everyone I know, and I'm not too pleased about
The only thing keeping me from
crawling under my desk and curling into the fetal position is the fact
that we have people like...
You're Never Too Old to Enjoy "Nick and Norah's Inifinite Playlist"
The Canadians took a few days to put up my latest review of "Nick and
Norah's Infinite Playlist." But it's up there now, and y'all should
check it out.
Just a quick note about this movie. I know officially we're out of the
age range that is supposed to enjoy teen films, but I'm still a kid at

film, in which the characters run around the Lower East Side of
Manhattan (A place I am rather...
