I'm reading this in chrome and theres a paragraph in there that flashes off while I'm trying to read it. it irritates me. please don't do it again

WTF is up with that? I'm in Safari and it does the same. And does your name mean Potat-o in name only?! <p> And guys, nice to see Kingdom of Heaven (DC) there on your lists. Just infinitely better than the butchered version. Orlando actualy has a character arc, Eva doesn't go crazy for no damn reason... God the suits are stupid.

And that Bright Star looked fairly awful in the trailer I saw for it. That review is a cop-out. Why are you recommending something you didn't enjoy because others will enjoy it and you're in the minority? By that logic, you should be recommending Twilight: New Moon to all of us...

I have absolutely no idea what causes it. It annoys me as well, but there's nothing I'm putting in the formatting that should cause this. I'll ask around and see what's happening. <BR> <BR> Wrong Guy: Why am I recommending something I didn't enjoy? For the reasons I outlined in the review above... As for Serious Man, the error I made with its release date is explained in the talkback of that article, as well as the subsequent AICN-D (briefly: I confused A Serious Man for A Single Man).

You guys are kidding, right? And well done Lat, always a great read.

just thought I'de mention that there's an article in today's Age newspaper (saturday) here in Australia about the new movie by the director that did the Jammed last year. The article was basically about the difficulty of shooting on a very low budget and being caught out by the bursts of heavy rain we had here in melbourne on Thursday I think. As for my handle/name I just kind of picked it vaguely randomly not much thought involved there at all I'm afraid.

The hairballs don't mope around and ask me to solve all their problems, for one thing. Which is what those stupid Muppet-headed Wild Things did in that tedious angstfest of a movie. Gawd. What about making FUN movies for kids and families? Something that charms and inspires people of all ages? In other words, more movies like Astro Boy? I mean what the hell is it with people who take a kid's picture book and try to make a 90-minute movie out of it? There's not enough material to sustain a film of that length, so the story gets padded, and the result is that the story's original charm gets buried under A STEAMING PILE OF CRAP. Geezus! I feel sorry for kids today. There are people making entertainment for them that don't understand them at all.

Geezus, you poor bastard, you live in FRANKSTON?! Just teasin', Lataro, keep up the great work!

What. the. fuck. It's a powerpoint presentation. Would you communists at least find SOME dignity (and intellectual honesty)? It's getting embarrassing...
Nov. 30, 2009, 1:52 a.m. CST
It's always old news. Then they review movies made in Australia. What the fuck?
