Re: To the Wonder

While I do think I prefer Tree of Life (something about the childhood angel there) over To the Wonder, and while I totally get why people don't warm to this film, I thought this was a wonderful film....

Re: To the Wonder

I loved Tree of Life and I am going to watch this one today or tomorrow. Glad to see you enjoyed it, and I can't help but think I will too. I'll be back with my thoughts.

Re: George Saunders

I have read half of the stories and am one who feels Saunders has been in a general state of decline for a while (I feel I should read the rest of the collection, but I don't know if I ever will).

Re: George Saunders

There's an aspect of militant evangelism to all of this, so I get it.

I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one engaged in this sacrilege, bill.

Re: The Master

I'm afraid I haven't seen this one yet, though I've been anxiously awaiting its arrival since I heard it was coming. Many times I was almost out the door, but . . . well, thanks to the kids, it's...

Re: Dr Who

We had fun with the episode, but -- I hate to say this as I was originally a big fan -- is anyone else getting a bit tired of the cleverness of Moffat? I really think his episodes pre-Matt Smith were...

Re: Recent Purchases 2012

I never have read Lonesome Dove, but I'm a fan of the mini series with Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones. The first episode seemed like a tame TV show, but it really picks up.

Re: Moonrise Kingdom (d. Wes Anderson, 2012)

So, Moonrise Kingdom . . .

When this movie was announced, I couldn't wait (the only other 2012 movie I'm as anxious for is Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master). For one thing, I really like Wes...
