I don't see what anyone can see in anyone else...but you...

First, I don't think I gave enough credit to No Reservations the first time I saw it. I still think that it's imperfect. There's something missing and the climax is...well, anticlimactic (the director fails to build any suspense, though he seems quick to emphasize the melodrama--the opposite would have been preferable). But still, I enjoyed it more the second time around and if I ever see it for under $7 in a bargain bin at Best Buy, it's mine.

Additionally, it was enjoyable because I rented it at a redbox with a promo code so it was FREE. Yay free movie night!

Second, I predicted a while back that Beowulf was going to be a huge flop. Now that it's coming out on DVD, I would like to take this opportunity to say "I was right."*

Third, how bad was Transformers that it's already selling for $10 at Best Buy? I mean, I didn't particularly like it, but I thought there were a lot of people who did.

*While I think it's funnier without an explanation and just me proclaiming to be right without an evidentiary basis, I'm constituting a flop because out of it's $150 million dollar budget, it only made $82 million, domestic. I didn't see it so I can't say it sucked, but I can also say that I have no interest in seeing computer-animated versions of real people. Lame.
