The Fountain

What a day.

Early morning helping some friends move into a much larger apartment. That was some back-breakin' work, but it felt good.

I came home, had beer, and watched The Fountain. Have you seen this? Why not? Run, do not walk, to the nearest distributor of movies and rent it. If you're feeling rather whippy, buy it. You won't regret it. It's Sci-Fi, but don't let that scare you. It's beautiful. Hugh Jackman is amazing. This movie is an emotional ride about love, life and death.

Get this:

"No matter how good CGI looks at first, it dates quickly," [Darren Aronofsky] says. "But 2001 really holds up. So I set the ridiculous goal of making a film that would reinvent space without using CGI."

Of the five movies nominated for Best Picture last year, I have seen all of them save The Queen. This movie is better than all of them. It was totally snobbed by the Academy. Brad Pitt made his Troy and it was absolute trash and that proves he's a moron. This movie probably just broke into my top five all time.

Why aren't you watching this movie right now?
