To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires, and lights, in a box.-Edward R. Murrow

I haven't seen any of the best film nominees, actually. Even though I want to see all of them. But I have a hard time believing that there were five movies better than Walk the Line this year.

It really, really needs to be Adams. That was my favorite character in a movie since Jack Sparrow.

And the first time in a *long* time that a performance has made me go, "hey wait, who is this, where did she come from, and where has she been hiding?"

Hey everybody, rent Junebug.
