12.26.08DVD Man... Tom Cruise dancing is just so odd. I liked this one seeing it again. The adoption thing was a bit stronger the second time through. McConaughey lamenting about how Tuggernuts at least gets to choose his son was perhaps my biggest laugh. Good stuff.
08.22.08Cinemark Pflugerville Pretty damn funny. I remember when I first saw Zoolander and it wasn't really connecting with a lot of people right away but now it's considered a classic in a lot of circles. I got a similar sense from this... some of the turns are so bizarrely odd and extreme that I think a lot of audiences instinctively reject it at first, but I bet Tom Cruise's little G5 dance will soon become something widely emulated at parties. Downey and Jack Black also have some amazing facial acting here. I can't believe the expressions they pull off. I would've liked to have seen more from just about everybody but I guess that's what the DVD is for.

good stuff for sure. Man, this summer's turning out to be one of the best in recent memory.
