Great list of movies!! (I've missed seeing what you've been watching, btw)

Wasn't "Grindhouse" a blast?! Wow.

You saw "INLAND EMPIRE"! *high-fives!* And you gave it 4-stars!! Sweet.. I got to attend the Chicago premiere with Lynch in attendance - he introduced the film and did a Q & A afterwards.. it was great! He's been doing that in most cities that play it.. was he at the theater you attended??

I tried watching "El Topo" recently - it was recommended on a Matthew Barney message board.. but sadly I just couldn't get into it..

I just got back from seeing Sarah Polley's "Away From Her". Fantastic film.. It's rather devastating. Bring tissues. :)

Yeah, sorry about that... I kept putting it off. I usually post reviews and stuff on my Rotten Tomatoes blog.

I wish more people had gone to see Grindhouse. I mean, seeing it in a huge theatre with around five people was kind of lame.

David Lynch wasn't at my Inland Empire screening, but it still was one of the best cinema experiences I've ever had. The sound was phenomenal.

You should try Jodorowsky's The Holy Mountain. It might be more to your liking. For starters, it's super weird. :D

Dang! I keep forgetting to see Away From Her.
