For all of you still bothering to check in here from time to time...thanks. Between a thesis, a move, and a job change, life has been insane. Now everything seems to have settled down. In other words, I'm back.
Here are some things I feel should be said:
1. Netflix Instant Watch through the X-Box 360 is fantastic. The only downsides are the lack of selection (especially under the TV category) and the "Your connection has slowed down so please enjoy Point Break in the all-new Super Blurry mode" message/feature.
2. Blockbuster Exclusives are bittersweet. It's great that the film is going to see the light of day and I'm sure having at least a couple of copies in every Blockbuster in America is appealing but for those of us who rent elsewhere (i.e. Netflix), it's almost like Guy Madden's My Winnipeg and the great animated Fear[s] of the Dark don't exist. (Although, they do exist and you should track down a copy of each.)
3. G-Force beat out Harry Potter's second weekend? How...who...ah hell, I don't know.
Anyways, I'm back. Here's a picture of Diane lane for you because you've been so patient.
