I totally agree. . .BUT, I must say, she does carry the movie. But best actress contender? I'm not sure. She's still Kiera Knightley.

Kiera Knightley. That name jumped off the list, for sure.

I find it mildly amusing that I, a former arts and culture editor (pretend or no) am getting pretty much all my pop culture info anymore from various blogs. Either this is a legit form of media or I am (as I suspect) just too lazy to care anymore.

I have come to the conclusion that I genially dislike the whole film industry. This doesn't mean that I don't like movies; I do like them. What I dislike, however, is the pretentiousness and cupidity of the Industry as a whole.

I find it incomprehensible that Oliver Stone continues to work. I am troubled that Roman Polanski is a hero of sorts, given his history with young girls. I find it difficult to fathom that a mental lightweight like George Clooney would be asked questions about anything more complicated than the brand of condom he likes best. And I am still looking to discover what in Hell a Kiera Knightley is, and how one ought to go about getting rid of it.

On the other hand, I ran across a perfectly charming little movie the other day called The Wedding Date. It has Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney, and the writing is really quite good. Several lines jump at you, and a few of them are cultural keepers.

Fair enough. I don't like Joe vs the Volcano, which ought to throw your cute self into a conniption. It all works out.

On the other hand (yes, I have a lot of hands)....I saw another movie movie the other night that I thought was fun...Must Love Dogs. It has Diane Lane, John Cuzack and assortment of other lunatics ranging from Christopher Plummer to Elizabeth Perkins and including an unapologetically aging Stockard Channing.

Worth seeing once...
