Rough week for Nicolas Winding Refn... Drive got shafted so bad by the Academy. On that note, I am excited to purchase it on Blu-Ray on Tuesday.

They really have some balls to re-release The Grey for Academy season...it doesn't look that great, so I'll be surprised if it gets anything.

New True Blood sneak peek is gonna drive me crazy til summer though.

A lot of the films at Sundance this year seem interesting. I don't know how it works, but do these films usually get theatrical releases after Sundance?

I don't think it worked in the sense that she immediately remembered everything, but I think it worked in the sense that Chuck was trying to get her back. Everything about those last couple of scenes spelled out a happy ending. Also, with the little hints throughout the episode, it seems she will eventually recover everything, slowly but surely.

Aronofsky's take on Noah has me really interested. The article mentioned a biblical themed movie Steven Spielberg is doing. Any one know what that's about?
