Then we get into Summer movies, in which Da Vinci Code and X3 top my list...but 4 months is plenty far in advance. Adjustments will be made as I hear about other possibly decent features, or that any of the above is a smelly pile of turd.

Oh, and I think Ebert is pussy-ing out in his old age. He isn't giving anything thumbs down to anything anymore. Cheaper By the Dozen 2, Roger? Really? This podcast is not worth subscribing to.

Just for fun, you should add the movie about the black girl that starts dating the white gardener.

Also... Since when is Ebert worth much anyhow? His better half (may he rest in peace) was worth it.

Something New. It does interest me, I guess I should add it. But it would be the first to get ditched in favor of something "better." Donald Faison cracks me up though. I really need to start watching Scrubs. And the white guy (Simon Baker?) is adorable. I love the "I don't do dogs" "Neither do I, we're just good friends" part. Hee hee.

I guess I figured that the older Roger Ebert gets, the less agreeable he should be. Like...your typical ornery old man who hates everything and spouts about how things "were better in the old days." Instead, he seems to have lost his taste-buds and will watch almost anything and like it. While I don't think there is a problem with this for the regular person (I rarely come up against a film I truly dislike), I feel when you're a reviewer, you need to be a little harsher and not say "it was alright, thumbs up." I feel like he's lowered his standards and it upsets me. He's a movie critic, he should have opinions, not bland notions.

Eh, my soapbox is high and piled atop a bunch of useless causes. Don't mind the crazy lady.

I guess he went the route of Santa?

Yeah, I guess that Something New would be at a bottom of the list during Oscar season, but still, now and then there's nothing wrong with good old solid fun. And yeah, Scrubs is definitely something that I would just watch a marathon of, like all day long on the couch, in jammies, eating PB&J and drinking milk. Personally, my fav is the doctor, the one who has like nicknames for everyone, like Newbie & Barbie. And Donald Faison has rocked since Clueless. How can it get better than, "My street slang is an increasingly valid form of expression. Most of the feminine pronouns do have mocking, but not necessarily in misogynistic undertones."

Nighty night.
