In the last week I’ve seen K-PAX, One Night at McCool’s, Home for the Holidays, and Almost Famous.
- Almost Famous is just an excellent movie. I loved it when I saw it in the theater and when I saw it again just now I was amazed at how good it really is. It’s one of those movies that doesn’t have any “throw-away” lines. If you haven’t seen it yet you should.
- K-PAX was a bit of a disappointment. I mean, I really enjoyed the film and all, but it just didn’t do anything for me. I don’t understand the tag line, “Change the way you look at the world.” I don’t see how this movie was supposed to help me do that … (That’s a better tag-line for Almost Famous!) The writing was good and the plot was fun, but I just don’t see why anyone would think it was mind-blowing. It was a decent flick and that’s all.
- Home for the Holidays was great and fun. Jodie Foster should stick to acting though; as a director I think she’s got a lot to learn. (To be fair, many of the plot’s inconsistencies were probably the editor’s fault.)
- One Night at McCool’s was a laugher. Michael Douglas, John Goodman, and Paul Reiser are hysterical. It was pretty ridiculous, but that was the point: Very funny.
PS: A belated Happy Birthday to TheBrad!

I saw The Man Who Wasn’t There and Novocaine – both pretty good. You should check ’em out on your next foray to the cinema.
