    The wife and I saw "Moonrise Kingdom" the other night ... an actual night out at the theater. Really cool and quirky movie. Bill Murray, Ed Norton, the always awesome Francis McDormand (speaking of which, "Fargo" rules), and the two kids do a nice job.

    We liked it, too.  One of the better flicks we've seen this year. 

    I'll nominate Danny Boyle's "Sunshine" - a truly existential take on sci-fi that's very suspenseful, eerily topical and poignant.  As a fan of the genre, I think it's a home run.

    Bullitt is a classic. Steve McQueen at his ultracool best. Mullholland Drive ...now that was one bizarre movie.  A great and twisted performance by Naomi Watts.

    Agree on both.

    David Lynch - what can you say.  The man is crazy and I think his movies are intended to make the viewer the same.

    Another gem from the vault:

    Mindwalk 

    ...one of the most interesting, insightful, non-documentary filmed conversations ever.  A poet, a politician, and a physicist all convene and discuss philosophy and science and their mutually symbiotic relation to the conflicts of humanity - all set against the marvelous backdrop of Mont Saint-Michel.  This is heady stuff (My wife calls it "Mind&**k.") and hard to summarize, but to me, it never gets old.  I even still have the VHS tape, because it's never been released on DVD.

    My wife and I watched a romantic comedy last night called Music and Lyrics, with Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore.  It's strictly a light comedy, but it's pretty well done.  Usually I find something to annoy me in movies like this, but this one stayed annoyance and inanity-free.  Grant's performance was commendably restrained.
