Recent views:

Mail Order Wife (NetFlix) -- Excellent movie. You don't know right away if it's a mockumentary or a documentary, and I won't spoil it here. But very well done.
Knocked Up (NetFlix) -- Had many funny moments, but tried to be too serious. This is called Adam Sandler Syndrome. Certainly worth renting though.
Running With Scissors (NetFlix) -- Pretty dark and depressing, but Augusten Burroughs' memoir-turned-movie ... ah, fuck it. This movie sucked.
Gone Baby Gone (Theater) -- Excellent movie. You could hardly tell it was Ben Affleck's directorial debut. As actors go, I've preferred his brother Casey over him for about 10 years, and he didn't disappoint in his first lead role.
Michael Clayton (Theater) -- Good movie, but not great. Clooney is never not good, and it was a good story. Had a splash of "Erin Brockovich" in it, a point about which I'm indifferent.
Rendition (Theater) -- I like movies with an intercontinental flavor, especially when dirty politics are involved. Jake Gyllenhaal's iron is almost as hot as Steve Carrel's the last couple of years, and he was indeed very good.
