What the hell is Code 46?

It was a limited release indie type flick starring Tim Robbins.

Don't let your curosity take you any farther in this quest.

We saw Pieces of April last night. I really liked it. It's about a twenty something girl making Tahnksgiving dinner for her family. The mom in it was a total bitch.

Well, it's not like she was always a total bitch or didn't have her reasons for it.  It's a bit more complicated than that.  It's very interesting, and quite odd.  

And, it's only 75 minutes so if you don't like it, at least it's short.

Good pitch!  That's how I convince the wimmins to make the love with me.

Maybe calling them "wimmins" is where you're going wrong in the first place.  They're not 5 Arby's roast beef sammiches, for Christ's sake.

It's o.k.  Don't you guys have IFC?  It's been on there for the last couple of weeks.

Yeah, we have it. I always forget to look what's coming on there. We got it from the library so it didn't cost us anything but gas money.

Every time I check IFC, they're showing GHOST WORLD or SEXY BEAST lately.

Don't get me wrong, I like them both, but fuck man.  Spend some money and get the rights to something I haven't seen before and that you haven't already run 10,000 times.

Rented Sky Captain and thought that it looked swell, but beyond the visuals, it was not too hot.

Agreed.  Had a fight with my brother over the topic this weekend.

I said as much in my review of it here.

Don't you people read our stuff? Yeesh!

I know it's been said dozens of times, but don't bother with The Village. M. Night lost his fuckin' mind, cuz that movie sucked in a bad, bad way.

There are reviews on this site????

Gonna disagree with you on the village Scott, but I get admonished at home for disliking rushmore and elf so to each his own I guess.

Yep, but I still went to see it.  Reviewers are fun to read, but they're not the boss of me.

I went into it thinking it was gonna be scary. I'd already heard the ending was a letdown, so I was prepared for that. But I had at least part of it figured out after about the first 30 minutes and it wasn't the least bit scary, so I was doubly let down.
