And so this is Christmas

Posted By on Tue, Dec 26, 2006 at 8:42 AM

Very enjoyable Christmas day.  Good food, nice gifts, great people.  Spent the afternoon with my grandfather and my great-grandmother.  Turns out my grandfather reads my reviews in the AR Times.  Who knew?  Didn't see anything yesterday, but I have "Dreamgirls" on my radar for today if my schedule allows (I'm back to my day job).  I saw "We Are Marshall" on Christmas Eve.  Not good, but not bad either.  It's an interesting story (I'll pass along some background from someone else who saw it) with a good cast (it currently has a 46% Cream of the Crop rating on rottentomatoes.com).

It's slow goings in the movie world.  The Writers Guild (Jan 11), Director's Guild (Jan. 9), Screen Actor's Guild (Jan. 4) and Producer's Guild (Jan. 4) all weigh in with their nominations, which will get everyone buzzing again.

Did you see anything good over the long weekend?

Merry Christmas to you and your family.  Joy and Peace.

  • That Time of Year

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.

  • Bad health care bill, again

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.

    LRSD continues to abdicate its responsibility to educate poor black students.
