A couple of quick movie reviews.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, I have to say I appreciated this movie more than I enjoyed it.
It was a finely crafted film, and one fucked up way to tell a love story.
The cast was very good, and Elijah Wood played a weasel quite well.
One of the cool things was you had this really ground breaking technology and it was operated by people who made Dante Hicks and Randal Graves look professional.

The Aviator. I really liked this movie. You can almost forgive DiCaprio for some of the crap he made earlier for this film. He really was quite good at Hughes. He did a lot of research and it shows. Martin Scorsese, of course deserves a lion's share of credit for putting it all together. Cate Blanchett as Katharine Hepburn was brilliant. It was good to see John C. Reilly play something other than a husband with a cheating wife. Alan Alda and Alex Baldwin were deliciously evil. Alda as the Senator on the take playing the media like a fiddle and Baldwin as the oh so cool Juan Trippe. Kate Beckinsale just had to be on screen and look gorgeous, which so did so very well.
