But now that you're like 5 minutes from work, it'll take a year and a half of commutes to finish.

Moving on... this movie...how appropriate. It looks positively kinetic. I haven't seen this one in the movies and it doesn't seem to be available (yet) through my normal sources. But I'm patient.

This movie recently became available to me via Netflix (dvd only, not streaming) and we watched it. Boyo boyoboy, was I right, it *is* kinetic. An excellent performance by Denzel, unsurprisingly. I was surprised however to learn that this movie is based on true events. Wow. If you can get your hands on this one, you should. Excellent film.

Here's one that we saw a trailer for while waiting for Maleficent to start. Maleficent was enjoyable too, but this one looks very intriguing. Might wait for the small screen since it's only gonna be in Seattle on Halloween at one theater.

Art and Craft.

Jellyfish Eyes.

This is not strictly speaking an anime project, but it definitely has the same vibe. Pokemon meets Death Note (live action) meets Summer Wars... I dunno. I want to see it. It's not available in theaters anymore and I can't find a region 1 dvd/bluray. Patient, I'm not.

excellent film, excellent trailer, momentarily deceiving youtube trailer title. The "2" made me think, holy mackerel there's another Watchmen!?!?!?. My error. Still, I like what we've gotten.

I'm a big fan of Pixar's work. And this looks to be a major emotion picture. *giggle*.

Hey Flint, doesn't this look cool?
