    The faux mask of anonymity amplifies the courage just like whiskey. And it just as graceful and eloquent as whiskey.

      I think this might be the most stacked Christmas season for movies. I saw eight in the last two weeks, and there are still more I want to see. Many of them great. I put Milk up there, but I also liked Seven Pounds, Frost/Nixon and most of the others.

      While I too like Netflix, the only way to really see a movie is in a darkened theater with no pause control. This is the pure movie going experience. What I have found is that no matter how good your home theater setup, there are too many distractions and the delicate balance with concentration is lost in many movies.

      If you want to see movies the way they are designed to be seen, go to the theater.

        ... many are gone from the theaters before you can get to them. That's why I wish they were more uniformly spread throughout the year.
