I'm a fairweather Woody Allen fan, I like Manhattan, Bananas, Everything you've Always Wanted to Know About Sex, Radio Days, Bullets over Broadway, and I absolutely LOVE Sweet and Lowdown, but I can't get behind some of his more, um, I don't know, "not-as-good" movies? I don't know how to describe them? and I was one of the few people who just didn't like Match Point. I think if it had been made by an up and coming film student, I think it would have been labeled as a very "film-schooly" kind of film. very content that every moment, every shot, and every line was so captivating that no one would mind that we really only need about 30% of them to tell the story. I very rarely feel impatient in a film, but it happens to me when I get that feeling of, "OK, it's either going to go here or there, let's get on with it and see which one it is." the journey was lost for me in Match Point, I just wanted to finish it like you have to finish a boring novel just to see how it ends. but Whatever Works looks hilarious.<p> Latauro, next year, in an effort to make the complex issue of racism even more trivialized and banal, Paul "Xenu" Haggis is going to examine issues of race relations among female surfers in "Blue Crash". (spoiler alert, Sandra Bullock learns to love Mexicans all over again, in the form of Michelle Rodriguez)

Man, it's gonna be a hell of a game on Saturday. As a rabid Cats supporter, I'm hoping we get up, but if we don't--well, at least we got to trash the Pies on our way to the Granny.

I'm sure there's something going on down there, but it has nothing to do with me so I just leave it alone.

Nothing of any particular interest or consequence ever goes on, but for some unfathomable reason A LOT of dumb people seem to enjoy it.
Sept. 24, 2009, 2:13 a.m. CST
thank you providing a completely idiotic analogy to make mine look even better. <p> if you think only dumb people enjoy The Big Lebowski, well man...there's really no talking to you, is there? did you even get that The Big Lebowski is a comedic spin on old LA Noir movies? I'm assuming that went by you. but even so, if you don't find The Big Lebowski funny, I guess that at least explains ONE of the viewers of the inexplicably popular Two and a Half Men. now where's the other bazillion?<p>how big is your family?

Oh wait... Nevermind. Also the league fanbase in Sydney has been on the decline the last 4 years. Watch a swans home match and then watch a bulldogs or roosters (lmao).

It died when the Canterbury Bulldogs got a slap on the wrist for those gang-rapes. And soccer will never take a mainstream hold in this country while the players and officials allow European-style 'diving'. So I guess all that's left is cricket and netball.

Don't say 'rugby'. It's League, as opposed to Union. Also Geelong are going to dominate and you know it.

Soccer is the most-played junior sport in the country. The A League just needs a higher profile or it'll go the way of basketball in this country.

I'd usually support the lions, but I suppose the other feline team will do.

Mao's Last Dancer seems good.

...but there was actually seven books all up in the original Tomorrow series. Marsden then did three more a few years later called the Elle Chronicles. I'd happily argue with anyone who didn't think that this is the greatest teen book series to ever come out of Australia. Now if only they could resist casting anymore Neighbours actors...

but my housemate saw a sign for The Hurt Locker at Dendy Newtown that said it was coming soon. Hooray!
