I am disturbed that my local cinema has given The Host 5 stars.
*BZZZT!* Wrong answer!
http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the_host_2013/

Is the reviewer there a 13 year old girl with a Stephanie Meyer obsession? Weird.

It's the only answer, isn't it? Either that or some tragic 40 year old.

I didn't watch nuthin, but Ellen announced Pixar is finally making a sequel to one of its better titles: FINDING NEMO.

In 2015[!!] we'll finally see Finding Dori. :)

Funny enough, that's my #1 line at work with the shitty training and with how well we're detailed on weekly-promos.

I recently caught Ferris Bueller's Day Off on TV not too long ago.  I know it's an iconic 80s movie, but like Yoda, I wasn't too enthralled by it.  Yet, go figure, I love the anime series The Irresponsible Captain Tylor which also features a disgustingly lucky protagonist.  Maybe I like that better because Tylor unwittingly bumbles his way to success whereas Ferris is more of a calculating sociopath who uses everyone around him by charming them to do his bidding.

I love Ferris -- but the sister and the principle are in no way "bad guys" for sure, despite how the film makes them out to be.  But I feel it's important to look at another interpretation of the film:

I think the point of the film was also looking at how artificial society is and how we've built it up into something that's much too important and serious for its own good.  You must go to school, you must learn these arbitrary subjects, and you must do well in them to move on, you must be in a formal education system till the age of 16, and you must spend the next 30 years working.  The movie was about bending these hard social rules and just giving it up for a day and having fun for a day.  They wanted to make that snotty waiter eat his words and Ferris wanted Cam to just lighten up because he was so stuck in social alienation (between his parents, expectations, and unwillingness to relent to Farris' shenanigans).  The best point about this is made that Ferris decides to play hooky during the bust 9-5 workday when school is in, the stock market is going nuts, and everyone is working while Ferris and friends are just enjoying the day and making the most of it -- because lets face it, he could have done all that on a weekend.

The Principle was right to pursue Farris when he knew better than to think Ferris was really sick, and the sister was right for thinking that he's lofting and it wasn't fair to her who plays "the game of life" more seriously.  But Farris says that it's good to just stop and take a breather every once in a while.  Whether he's a sociopath is up to you, but he's apparently a nice guy to both the "jocks and the dweebs", but also, like Cam said, "if I wanted to stop you, I could have... not even the great Ferris can stop me" (or something like that).

When it comes to 80s "teen beat" movies, my favorites are easily The Breakfast Club and Heathers.  Heathers was fan-freaking-tastic!  It had some of the best one-liners.

I will have to see that one.

I'm a sucker for When Harry Met Sally when it comes to stuff from the 80s (rom-com wise, the couple might not have been very dreamy, but the comedy was good enough for just about anybody).  Breakfast Club was pretty good (though hilarious the nerd was the only one without a girlfriend at the end...womp womp).  I like Pretty in Pink, it gains points for awesome Otis Redding scene.

Let's face it, Christian Slater and (more specifically) his hair bump it up a grade.

Speaking of 80s movies.  Uncle Buck.  Love it.

Looks like lots of people are unfamiliar with Heathers.  Here's the trailer.

Need more incentive to see Heathers?  It's the best Winona Ryder's ever looked... and that's saying a lot because she's always looked smokin' in movies and she still looks hot.

And, yes, Fast Times was great.  I was even witness to a Spicoli moment when I was in university; a student had pizza delivered to the classroom and from that point on I called him Spicoli.
