I thoroughly enjoyed the Tales From The Darkside marathon on SCI FI last night. It’s great to see that series return to television (re-airing, I mean).
Edmond – it’s based on the brilliant David Mamet’s 1982 play of the same name. Directed by Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator), it stars William H. Macy as a man who decides to give in to his baser instincts. The film co-stars Julia Stiles. Edmond is raw and brutal, the film that Falling Down wishes it was. Macy is spellbinding as usual. It’s his movie and he runs with it, crafting a man at the end of his rope with equal parts outrage and insanity. One of the best movies of the year with a great, great ending.
Feast – fun little horror flick. Mindless b-movie cheese.
Thank You For Smoking – brilliant satire and one of the best movies of the year.
The Woods – Lucky McKee’s second film might get pegged as being one-note or unfocused but it’s still a great horror movie. Bruce Campbell is effective, as always.

Veronica Mars has its Season 3 premiere tonight on The CW. If you don’t watch or haven’t been watching this show — for shame! Jump in now. It’s the best show on television.
Now I’m off to Target. Our coffeemaker is dying. And perhaps they’ll have Sean Lennon’s new CD Friendly Fire, which streets today.
Head on over to Daily Kos for the latest on Mark Foley-gate. It’s sick and full investigations need to be implemented ASAP. Whoever in D.C. — and it looks like a hell of alot of them knew for five years (Dennis Hastert — I’m looking at you and your ilk) — knew that a pedophile was walking the halls of Congress needs to be ousted also.
