Then Invention of Lying

Novel concept-- a world before lying, and how one of us from THIS world could manipulate our own fate amid such innocence.

Could've been funnier that it was, but wouldn't have been as funny at all without the world's first liar inventing "the man who lives in the sky"--shocking fun!


The future spin on telecommuting--you sit in your home pod while your younger, hotter (and possibly even darker & more opposite-sexy) robo-doppelgänger heads into work for you!

I'd be happier if I could be off traveling, rather than having to still concentrate remotely on the office.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

It's raining Spam©--Hallelujah!

Amen for a non-Pixar, non-Dreamworks animated flick that kicks tail & then some--if this kind of beautiful animation & sharp writing is going to be typical of Sony Pictures Imageworks, I'll be eager to see what's next.

Capitalism: A Love Story

Michael Moore examines the world around us: mortgage companies getting bailed out while homeowners get kicked out; companies secretly taking out life insurance policies on their "peasant" employees; in general, Life Since Reagan.

Starts out strong & funny and keeps plugging along, until at some point the depression soaks right through you.
