Kid Casting. When a movie has a flashback of a character as a child. So good.

A whole lot of Easter Eggs in Pixar's Up. I finally saw the movie so now I'm reading old reviews and opinions. I loved the first 30 minutes but I surprised myself by not loving the rest of it. Maybe I need to see it again?

Ben Brown and Katie Spence (the husband and wife team that previously brought you the very funny and cute iwanttoseethatparticularmovieyougotthere podcast) are launching a movie super-site dedicated to all movies on DVD, silver screen, BluRays, and surely day-long movies as well (timely!), for you to categorize and store for later.

It's called HOORAY MOVIES!

And the best part: many kinds of data feeds for the mishing and the mashing of movies for you to build things on top of their data.

Untraceable might be the worst tech movie ever made, but the trailer is fucking hilarious. Not as good as Blow'd Up, but damn close. found on plastic bag.

So bummed "Walk Hard" was brought to us by "the guy who brought you Talladega Nights". I just bought the first season of "Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job" on iTunes and was reminded of how good John C. Reilly is.

Note: if you listen to The Sound of Young America you'll notice a correlation between stuff I watch/buy/talk about and stuff on that show. I just thought I'd point that out before you realized it.

Ben Brown and Katie Spence have a new site up called I Want To See That! The purpose of the site is to get you and your friends to get out and actually see movies. There's a podcast for the site where Ben and Katie talk about the upcoming movies even though they haven't seen them. It turns out to be really compelling to watch and I'm already looking forward to each episode.

Note: I accidentally posted a rambling piece late last night that was supposed to be a draft. Whoops!

My favorite line ever uttered on Monk (a TV show about a detective with OCD) comes at this moment where he stops in front of a very modern, splotchy painting, where dark figures seem to blend into each other in gloomy colors. He stares at it a bit, turns to the owner, and in an almost frightened voice says: "This is me...isn't it?"

With that, I point you to the very funny Regrets: Hobbies, part of a series by Steve Delahoyde. Here is boxes, spoons, kid, and racism.

IFC is showing the documentary about the Golden Gate Bridge called "The Bridge". While I knew it was going to be depressing and tough to get through, the fact that I commute over the bridge every day made it so much worse.

This is how interviews should be done! Spike Jonze being interviewed in Interview magazine.

Interviewer: Have you considered advertising this movie as a modern-day Cocoon for hipsters?

Spike Jonze: Oh, you picked up on that, did you? You're good. But no, I'm just going to leave it as it is. The tale of a man who plays with dolls.
