Movie Madness

First, stories for Round Six of the Prison Break Fic Exchange are being posted up. Drop by and see!

In the previous post I mentioned an actual book with talking cats who also read the newspaper. It turns out that daybright is also familiar with the awfulness of this book! *clings to her* Something that uniquely terrible IS kind of memorable. But who would publish such a thing? Honestly, if someone pitched that idea to you or, god forbid, sent you the manuscript, wouldn't you practically injure yourself leaping over your desk to get away from it as fast as you could?

Movies on DVD:
The Squid And The Whale got lots of positive reviews, but gosh— an unpleasant movie with unpleasant people (you only hate them more over time), and when the title suddenly flashed up on black at the end, I actually said, "You're kidding! You didn't even finish your story arc!"
I didn't expect much from The Simpsons Movie, but if I'd known it was going to be that funny I'd have gone to see it in the theater! Whoo-hoo! SO much to love. But where was the Scottish janitor? Did I miss him?
