Kim actually got me back into a movie theater a couple weeks ago. We saw District 9. The trailer made it look really cool, but it wasn't quite what I expected. A bit too much "humans are bad" preachiness. I was looking forward to a good "here come the aliens—now they're here, what do we do with them?" flick but got a lesson on why camps or reservations might be bad. Still, I liked the unlikely "hero" of the movie. Kinda nervous and pitiful.

Tonight we watched Milk. Again, not quite as good as I thought it would be, but still a nice job by the actors and all. But I'm still grossed out when 2 men kiss. Always will be, just like I've always hated potatoes. Luckily, there isn't much of that. It's mostly a political thing. And I got a kick out of seeing old Anita Bryant footage. Holy fuck was she a loony toons. They did miss including the pie–in–the–face episode in the movie, sadly.

We finally watched Zach and Miri Make a Porno again after the Marantz started acting up the last time, this time using the old Denon and old speakers while the Marantz is in the stereo hospital. That has some really funny shit—lots of dirty, dirty humor. Justin Long was hilarious as a gay porn actor, and Craig Robinson (The Office's Darryl) also had some great stuff. And as always, Seth Rogen makes me chuckle when he says almost anything. And Elizabeth Banks is fairly easy to look at.

Let's see, we also watched The Wrestler a few weeks ago. Damn good movie. Really. Mickey Rourke is so fucking good at what he does. Of all the 4 movies mentioned here, this is the one I'd recommend. Plus, Evan Rachel Wood as his daughter and Marisa Tomei naked all over the place.
