Stoked for the next couple weeks. Iron Man 2 comes out tomorrow and Robin Hood next week. I haven't been to the theatre in a while but I will be catching both of these on the big screen.

Brian's Song. For you young bucks, this is a 70s movie based off the story of two Chicago Bears: Brian Piccolo and Gale Sayers. It portrays everything from their rookie training camp up until Brian's death from cancer. It does an awesome job of showing Piccolo and Sayers' relationship, how much of good friends they were and their friendly banter, even though they were both competing for the same job. It also uses actual NFL footage for the game shots, so the sports action is A+. The only drawbacks were that (1) it wasn't such the awesome movie in 2010 that it was in 1970. Some classic movies are timeless and it doesn't matter when you watch them. This isn't really one of them. It is still a very good movie, but I kept thinking "After school special" about 45 minutes into it. Either way, at only 75 minutes it's worth a look.

I have maybe seen a handful of 10/10 movie rankings in the Darkside movie thread, and those were for classics. Every person who has seen Inception and ranked it over there has given it a 10/10 or 9/10 at the least. I'm going to try and see it this weekend sometime. ;-D

Jerome Bixby's The Man From Earth - 8.5/10

Streaming on Netflix right now.

John (David Lee Smith), a college professor, is leaving his university after 10 years. A group of colleagues come to his cabin to say goodbye. Early on, comments are made about how little he has changed in appearance over the past 10 years. "He hasn't aged a day." John basically claims to be an immortal 14,000 year old caveman. For the rest of the movie he's questioned by his colleagues (a biologist, anthropologist, psychologist, Christian literalist) about his life. The questions are deep and the dialog is engaging throughout.

The acting is not good, but the script more than makes up for it. It's one of the most interesting movies I've seen in a long time. A hidden gem if you ask me.

Inception was freaking mind blowing. Dinner for Schmucks was funny, though I imagine I coulda waited to see it on DVD and not regretted it. See Inception now. kthanxbai.
