We'll be right back, after Eric's brain is found

My apologies for the lack of posts of late, but my workload has absolutely pulverized me this week. I've been so swamped I can practically catch flies with my tongue.

But before I hop off and join Kermit the Frog,  a quick trip into the past, present and future.

The past: The Informant! came out on DVD Tuesday. I thought it was one of the best films of the year, which means it's better than most people say it is.  Sort of like Shutter Island. Here's my original review.

The present: The fairly well reviewed  horror flick The Crazies is out in theaters today. So is the fairly well slammed Cop Out  by Kevin Smith. I may check out The Crazies at some point and will eventually see Cop Out, but I have to agree that a film directed by Kevin Smith and written by someone else (like Cop Out) sounds less appealing than a film written by Kevin Smith and directed by someone else.

The future: I will be  attending the AMC Best Picture marathon for the third year in a row this weekend. How do they do that now that there are 10 nominees? Split them into two weekends, of course.

This Saturday:

10:30AM: Avatar (3D)
1:45PM: Up in the Air
4:00PM: Precious
6:45PM: The Blind Side
9:15PM: Inglourious Basterds

Next Saturday:

10:30AM: Up
12:45PM: A Serious Man
2:45PM: The Hurt Locker
6:00PM: An Education
8:00PM: District 9 

And yes, I am fully aware - and happy - that I am crazy. So until next time, folks ...

Someday I'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers, and me
La da-da de, da-da do
La da da-da, la-de-da-doooo ,,,
