Bitter Pill sounds like an utterly boring project, but between Burns and Soderbergh, I'm in. I've been a fan of the collabo since The Informant!, which is probably Soderbergh's best film of the 00's save Che.

Labor Day is an incredible book and I am psyched that Reitman is directing it, but Reitman stated when he made Juno that he has no interest in young characters and that he wouldn't have made it if it weren't for the adult characters and that makes me a little worried, as the central character is a child and he is certainly the most interesting part of it.

I'm not a HUGE fan of the ending of Young Adult because even though Cody doesn't allow Theron's character to 'learn from her mistakes' she still tries to give her a justifiable reason as to why she is the way she is and force us to sympathize with her. It's weird to me that that is what convinced Reitman to direct it.

The Prometheus images are gorgeous. This will be one of the best films of the year. Everything about it thus far has been perfect, and the fact that Ridley convinced 20th Century Fox to let him make a deeply philosophical tale with the budget of a summer blockbuster is crazy. I think their rather unexpected box office success with The Tree of Life is partly to thank for that.

My buddy and I are driving down to Philly just to see TDKR prologue! So psyched.

I love that Cabin in the Woods poster and I think it describes the film perfectly without giving anything away. I loathe Joss Whedon and his body of work with a fiery passion, but I really, really, really dug that script. It's so much fucking fun.

I'm still in awe of the fact that Ender's Game is finally being made. The casting thus far is spot on. Such a shame that Gavin Hood is directing, though.

Del Toro as KAAAAAAAAAAAAAHNNNNNNNNNNNNN? I'm in.
Faulkner on HBO? I'm in.

Sweet, Jordan's IMAX Reading.. just a few towns over. SO seeing this prologue. Ghost Protocol looks pretty entertaining too, so that's a plus.
