- I saw The Happening on Friday and will be posting a review shortly. It's definitely not Shyamalan's worst movie to date. But sadly, that's not saying much at all. Honestly, it'd be pretty tough to top Lady in the Water in that arena.
- Scratch that. I don't have it in me to revisit The Happening in the way I would need to to write a full review.
Grade: C-. I'll post a mini review much much later.
- I recently watched Evening for the first time. I (wisely) missed it when it came out last year. Man, that movie is a mess. How they can assemble so much talent in one place and come up with...that is a testament to bad writing/directing.
- This is just a general sentiment. Something I need to get off my chest. Normally, I'm not very easily offended. And this is no exception. What I'm about to say comes less from my being offended than it does from my being annoyed/unamused. Fuck Carlos Mencia. There I said it. I happened to have Comedy Central on in the background and since I don't have a remote, and therefore have to get up to change the channel, in the process of doing so, I happened to catch a little bit of his show. Fuck him. "Hillary Clinton can't win because she's not hot enough." He actually said that. No clever double-entendres. Nothing else witty to add. That was the joke. The audience loved it. Excuse me while I fucking projective vomit. Fuck Carlos Mencia right up his ugly, developmentally challenged ass. He's like a composite of every single socially retarded, homophobic, racist guy I went to elementary/high school with and the fact that he's made it onto television makes me lose faith in the world in ways I never thought possible. Again, not easily offended here. George Carlin, who is often homophobic/racist was one of my favorite comedians. Judd Apatow's stuff is also often offensive in the same way. You know why I like these people? Because they're...wait for it: FUNNY! Carlos Mencia is neither funny nor clever enough to get away with half the shit he gets away with saying. He's like that kid who giggles every time he hears the word "booby." Fuck him. He's. Not. funny. Fuck him. Fuck him. Fuck him. Fuck. Him.

More to Come...
I haven't been posting as much as I'd like to. I've been seriously busy and it doesn't look like it's slowing down any time soon. Yesterday, I started principal photography on the film I'm directing. I had so many nightmares the night before about all the things that would go wrong, but it went surprisingly smoothly and I'm sure now more than ever that this is what I want to do with the rest of my life. It was such a high. But enough about me...
