Movies, Movies, Movies

Because Carrie is out of town on her annual Tucson pilgrimmage, I’m finding ways to distract myself from being lonely.  And this time, that involves seeing movies. 

Yesterday I went with @elgaladwen and saw Slumdog Millionaire.  It was pretty good, definitely a thumbs-up, but best picture?  Really?  

Then last night Laura & I watched Tropic Thunder, which is a really fascinating movie.  

And at 4:40 today I’m going with @leiapico to go see Coraline in 3D at the new Regal Cinemas at “The Landing” in Renton.  If anybody wants to join us, they are welcome to meet us there!  

I might try to swing seeing either The Wrestler or Gran Torino tomorrow early afternoon if’n I can find anybody to go with.  

This does mean, of course, that I’m going to be even more behind on my Movie Reviews than I already am.  Le sigh.

Starfish Hitler

The Echinoblog has catalogued a fascinating collection of starfish-based kaiju in Japanese entertainment.  The most entertainingly weird is easily the “Starfish Hitler” from the Kamen-Rider series.  Take a wook:
