Happy Birthday, Kevin Bacon

Don't ask me how I found this.

Shameless plug for my photo project, Roundabout Expressway...

and then a movie review.

Be Kind Rewind (2008)
I read a bunch of reviews for this movie before I saw it. Once I saw it, it pretty much just confirmed that "real" movie critics have no idea what they're talking about. Sure it was hokey and far-fetched. But it's a feel-good, funny, effin' good movie. I may be biased because this was directed by the same fella who directed Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (one of my all time favourite flicks), but I really don't know how anyone could hate this film. Jack Black is awesome as Jerry, perhaps more awesome than usual. I haven't seen much else with Mos Def, but he seemed to be a pretty decent actor, and Danny Glover is as good as ever (but holy crap is he getting old!). Anyways, hilarious movie, go see it, you will enjoy it. If you don't, there's something wrong with you.

I watched Hellboy again as well, so I'm totally stoked for Hellboy II: The Golden Army. I also watched Batman Begins again, so I'm totally stoked for Dark Knight.
