Remember when Memorial Day Weekend was the start of the summer movie season? Iron Man 2 has been out for weeks – plus we’ve already gotten about a dozen 3D movies this year which requires a completely separate post – and I’m already pining for the super-serious fall/winter awards-hungry films. But this weekend we get Sex and the City 2 and Prince of Persia: Gyllenhaal on PEDs – are you kidding me? Quick round-up of some stellar Sex and the City 2 reviews, which is currently rocking a 16% rating on Rotten Tomatoes:

Until recently, I hadn’t watched Saturday Night Live in probably 10, maybe even 15, years. I could easily kick the show in groin by saying that I haven’t been watching because the skits are no longer funny and neither are the actors. But I won’t. The real reason I haven’t watched is, of course, I can’t stay up that late anymore because I’d rather spend my Saturday nights out at the club.

“There is no God damn reason.” E. B. Sledge

The final episode of The Pacific aired last night so I will have a few thoughts on that episode, as well as the series overall, later in the week. But Part 9 does deserve some discussion and analysis for the horrors it showed in Okinawa and the continuing (and surprising) brilliance of Joe Mazzello. Who would have thought the freaking kid from Jurassic…ok, just kidding, he is the kid from The Pacific now.

I just thought I would put this on here in light of J’s last post and because I think Mr. Allen, the artist, is a true genius. This interview is hilarious if you, like me, are a cynical bastard……Best quote, “I try and keep as much comedy out of my films as possible…”

Raising Arizona has been getting some play on cable lately and I happened to turn it on today right before the classic diaper-chase-scene where H.I. (Nic Cage) robs a convenience store for the Huggies he needs for his recently stolen child – seriously. The Coen Brothers really let loose in this scene. Somehow they fit an entire movie’s worth of humor and ideas into the 5 minute long set piece. More thoughts after the break:
