Today's XKCD is sooooo true! I have been out of college for about 20 years and, yes, I STILL have this f*cking dream!
I have still been on my quest to watch movies that have been nominated for Academy Awards. First there was "The Lives of Others" which won Best Foreign Film last year. It was a good flick about East Germany in the early 80's and how the government spied on pretty much everyone. It's unbelievable how much time and effort were spent keeping an eye on every little detail of the lives of citizens. Talk about living in constant fear!
The other movie was "Little Children" which was up last year for Best Supporting Actor, Best Actress, and Best Adapted Screenplay. It was drama drama drama about people having an affair. There was a subplot which involved a child predator played by Jackie Earl Haley. He did an excellent job playing the creepy pedophile. It was no wonder he was nominated. What I didn't realize was that he just finished another memorable role. He was Rorschach in The Watchmen! Watch out for this guy! He's a great actor.
To those heading out to FWA, have a great time! Maybe I'll join you next year.
